I am so pleased and so honored to welcome this particular guest into the house. His name is Greg Kaminsky, and he is the host of a podcast called Occult of Personality. I was trying to think of a good analogy for Greg and I coming together, and the best one I could think of is the first time you heard Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg together. Greg is the podfather - Doggfather? - of occult podcasts. We’ll talk a bit about how he became that, and then we’re gonna dig into one of my favorite topics and talk about one of my favorite dudes to ever do this damn thing: Giovanni Pico della Mirandola. Such a fascinating figure with some downright heretical ideas. And Greg is gonna creep to the mic like a phantom and parse out this story for us over the course of the next hour. So sit back, relax, and strap on your seatbelt, because you’ve never been on a ride like this before, with a producer who can rap and control the maestro. It’s time to roll another dope episode up and take a toke but don’t choke, because if ya do, you’ll have no clue what me and my homie Greg Kaminsky came to do.
