Reprobates Hour Archive

The Polyschizmatic Reprobates Hour was my first podcast, and I still get emails asking for new episodes–in fact, I have five unreleased episode at various stages of completion sitting on my hard drive. Unfortunately it’s one that keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the priority list since life has been utterly insane the last couple of years.

However, Richard Carrier was kind enough to point out to me that all the links at the show page are broken. Turns out the old WordPress Podcasting plugin just plum don’t work anymore. Since I’m not going to have time to re-do the site for a couple weeks (or, more likely, a couple months), I’m posting the direct links to all the shows here.

Here we go.

About the author

After a childhood in academia, J. Daniel Sawyer declared his independence by dropping out of high school and setting off on a series of adventures in the bowels of the film industry, the venture capital culture of silicon valley, surfing safaris, bohemians, burners, historians, theologians, adventurers, climbers, drug dealers, gangbangers, and inventors before his past finally caught up to him.

Trapped in a world bookended by one wall falling in Berlin and other walls going up around suburbia and along national borders throughout the world, he rediscovered his deep love of history and, with it, and obsession with predicting the future as it grew aggressively out of the past.

To date, this obsession has yielded over thirty books and innumerable short stories, the occasional short film, nearly a dozen podcasts stretching over a decade and a half, and a career creating novels and audiobooks exploring the world through the lens of his own peculiar madness, in the depths of his own private forest in a rural exile, where he uses the quiet to write, walk on the beach, and manage a production company that brings innovative stories to the ears of audiences across the world.
