Ep 98: Matt Erickson Todays World of Wokeism

Today, we will take another deep dive into the “woke culture” with Matt Erickson, co-host of Wealth, Power, and Influence podcast and host of his show KingPilled on Youtube. In the prior episode with Matt (ep 96) we discussed the origins of “wokeism,” Today, we will dig into the current state of “wokeism” and why these people are totalitarians and are full-blown “do as I say, not as I do” frauds. As always this is a good one and I always enjoy talking with Matt.

  1. Hey Gary – great episode, as you promised. Thank you. Loved your first episode with Matt and this was a great bow on the package.

    If you are interested in more background on how precisely it is that companies get converged with SJWs who then eventually drive their employers into the ground before moving-on like locusts to the next corporation, I cannot more highly recommend Vox Day’s “Corporate Cancer”…


    It’s a really quick, easy read and, I think, explains better than anything the how and why of this phenomenon, and is a great supplement to Matt. I know that Vox is a bit of an “un-person” – having been “cancelled” long before the current madness – but he and Matt are precisely of like mind and I find Vox’s description perfectly outlines my own lived corporate wage-slave experience.

    All the best,
