3.0/5

Critic Rating

Subversive is a podcast by Alex Kaschuta about ideas that may not fit neatly into the Overton window and could use a nudge, or a sledgehammer. Alex chats to thinkers across the spectrum from iconoclast philosophers, rogue scientists, *real* journalists, and our true intellectual elite, Twitter anons.

Angus Colwell • The Spectator Oct 1, 2022

"Technically, Subversive is messy. The audio quality is frequently poor and the discussions too often go down intellectual cul-de-sacs that will only make sense to the Very Online. Yet there are insightful moments. A lot of these guests may be bedroom-dwellers, but the ample time they have has been well spent, pursuing interests and lines of thought outside of institutional settings (which would have nudged them towards an orthodoxy). Often they give a compelling diagnosis without a prescription. They target liberalism with such a ferocious blast, and such a deep nihilism, that constructing anything else after feels impossible. The podcast’s deliberately curated underground, smoking-room tone grates. It’s all hush-hush, anonymous, conspiratorial. It could try less hard. There’s an earnestness to its relentless reverence of irony. And if it’s a political podcast, it may need to work on what annoying people call ‘reach’."
