In this Art of Thinking Podcast, Greg Scorzo talks to writer, podcaster, and Zero Books publisher Douglas Lain. In the first two hours of this podcast, Scorzo and Lain discuss the ethos of Zero Books, Diet Soap media, Lain’s departure from Zero Books, communism, the instability of capitalism, working class revolutions, the problem of mass production, whether social structures undermine free will, incentives as desire technology, a world without wages or profit, the prospects for a working class revolution, and whether capitalism is worse than alternative forms of social organisation.  In the third hour of this podcast, Scorzo and Lain discuss Lain's experiences on dating Apps, his experience as a newly single person at age fifty, sex positive feminism, the connection between sex and love, and whether or not Lain would ever date a porn star. 
Sorry about the mic issues. However, it goes without saying, this discussion is still audible, and still riveting....

Also listen to recorded dialogues from Greg Scorzo's debut novel 'Love Before Covid,'  - traumatic (sur)realism at it's best. An experimental and extreme collection of real-time dialogues, traversing a complex moral maze of how love is being impacted by gender politics in these polarised political times. Exploring the nature of love and drawing focus to the dark side of romance, procreation and sex, it deals unsparingly with unpredictable behaviour, abuse, depravity and forgiveness. To find out what healthy love could be, this book explores what it shouldn’t be. "Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other." - Carl Jung
