Being a chaos agent is exhausting. The internet never ends. It’s so abstract, groundless. At some point, all of your content seems stale and redundant. All the conspiracy theories, outrage farming, and dietary supplements seem boring; your manic salesmanship starts to feel hollow. Maybe you’re also wondering about whether you’ve sold your soul, or who you may have hurt along the way. What will you turn to? Who will help you? What will your ultimate piece of content be? From time out of mind, there’s only ever been one answer: GOD. Russell Brand, Joe Rogan, and Andrew Huberman have all recently made such confessions of faith. Derek and Matthew discuss.

Book your ticket to happiness with Sun Express Airlines. Hey everyone. Welcome to Conspiratoriality where we investigate the intersection of


conspiracy theories and spiritual influence to uncover cults,

threads at Conspiratoriality Pod. You can also access all of our episodes


ad free plus our Monday bonus episodes over on

subscriptions as independent media creators we really appreciate


your support. And today Matthew and I are producing a brief called The God Pivot


Rogin, Brand, and Huberman.


Let's say you're a charismatic guy burning with passion and hunger looking for your slice of eternal glory.


And starting out, you made a name for yourself as a cultural critic or a comedian or as a


Maverick scientist. Your fans saw you as brilliant, charming,


inspiring. But how many fans? Was it enough? You rode home from your gigs in a humming limo thinking about that theater, the comedy club, that undergrad class you were teaching, such small, shabby spaces.


Keeping your light, as Jesus says, under a barrel.


But then one day, as if in a dream you feel the door of the internet crack open,


and in the cold blue light you see the streams of infinite code that can turn the


fans you can see into followers you can monetize. The algorithm shows you the


emotional wounds of the whole world and how to both soothe and pick at them.


Following your intuition, you seek out the norms of journalistic, political, and medical consensus,


so you can test those norms and break them.


You enter a flow state as a perpetual disruptor,


and you can't even count the money that pours in.
