Friends, I can't believe AEWCH has hit 30 episodes! My guest Mitch Horowitz and I discuss how positive thinking intersects with radical politics and more!
And honestly, I couldn't have gotten here without some of the principles I learned from new thought and positive thinking. Don't worry, I'm still an angry political bro, or whatever.
Mitch is the author of two books I can't recommend enough, Occult America: White House Seances, Ouija Circles, Masons, and the Secret Mystic History of Our Nationand more recently, One Simple Idea: How the Lessons of Positive Thinking Can Transform Your Life. Finally, you can pre-order Mitch's upcoming book, The Miracle Club: How Thoughts Become Reality.
Mitch and I talk about how positive thinking can gel with radical politics (and why it often doesn't), why both leftists and new agey people are really disorganized, the occult history of America, why the occult is pro-individual, why we shouldn't demonize Mary Baker Eddy, placebo and healing, and more.
