The Exploring Antinatalism Podcast

The Exploring Antinatalism Podcast

The Exploring Antinatalism Podcast is the world's first podcast dedicated to the subject of Antinatalism, created by Antinatalists! Antinatalism, (Or Anti-Natalism.) Is defined by Wikipedia as, “A philosophical position and social movement that assigns a negative value to birth.” The world of Antinatalism is very vast, and though most Antinatalists do share a kernel of the same core idea, what one Antinatalist believes from the next can be wildly different. What The Exploring Antinatalism Podcast seeks to showcase, is a wide range of the various perspectives and ideas throughout Antinatalism as it exists today, through interviews with Antinatalist thinkers and creators of all kinds. Exploring Antinatalism was originally founded in early 2020 by various members of the now extinct, Rogue Philosophy: Antinatalism Discord, but soon grew away from being a team effort, to a mostly solo project run and hosted by long time Antinatalist content producer, Amanda ‘Oldphan’ Sukenick. (Foreverwolffilms on YouTube.), with the exception of sometimes host/co-host, Mark J. Maharaj (Question Mark? on YouTube). Thank you for listening to Exploring Antinatalism!
