Jason Horsley produces the Children of Job Blog and Podcast. He is the author most recently of Big Mother: the Technological Body of Evil, and many other books. He was born in Britain and has lived in Morocco, British Columbia, and now Spain. Jasun’s work is an excursion into the uncanny valley of philosophy where good and evil battle on a landscape of linguistics, technology, demonology, crime, transgenderism, liquid modernity, identity politics, the surveillance state, virtual reality, transhumanism, Satanism, medical totalitarianism, and a new world religion of scientism.

The KunstlerCast theme music is the beautiful Two Rivers Waltz written and performed by Larry Unger

    Great discussion with Horsley, Jim. His descriptions of his childhood is rather harrowing: enveloped in sumptuously wealthy in materialism, poverty-stricken in emotion and love. It makes one want to measure just what is truly valuable in this world.

    Horsley was a bit too esoteric for me, but his message is clear as the first commenter states. The host provided some interesting background on his Jewishness during the second half of the program.
