Ep.14: Mitch Horowitz – Spiritual Anarchy

Available on Apple PodcastsSpotify and YouTube.

I can’t help but wonder: have philosopher William James and punk band Dead Kennedys ever been mentioned in one same interview? Well, they have now! On this show, Mitch Horowitz presents us with a plethora of ideas to seriously consider on the seeker’s path of spiritual growth.


Mitch Horowitz, a distinguished historian of alternative spirituality, is renowned for his erudite exploration of esoterica, mysticism, and the occult. Through his work, Horowitz not only delves into outsider history, emphasizing its relevance to contemporary life, but also advocates for the enduring pursuit of human empowerment. A PEN Award-winning author of many book and a prolific lecturer, he has many times answered the call to discuss the seeker’s path on many platforms, from the most obscure (like this one) to the most mainstream. And to top it all off, maybe his crowning achievement; Mitch Horowitz is currently censored in China.
