If you want an idea of what my upcoming book The Psychopath Economy is all about – here’s the index. Should give you a good idea.
My eldest kids, Taylor and Hunter, have launched their own podcast – UNTWINED. I think they might be one of the first second generation podcasters, which is a nice poetry, as I was one of the first of the FIRST generation. Definitely check it out. I’m impressed with how they are embracing their naïvety to try to work out how the world works. In the third episode, they interviewed my good mate Tony Kynaston, a multi-millionaire professional investor, about his journey from poverty to being worth a few bucks (and generously supporting some of my crazy projects). Worth a listen.
Principal Photography Completed!
Last weekend we *finally* got the principal photography completed for my first documentary, MARKETING THE MESSIAH. I shot all of my scenes to camera down in Melbourne with the lovely crew from Ignition Immersive. Now we’ve just got to edit it all together and sell it. For those of you who don’t know what the film is about – I’ve done interviews with biblical scholars, ancient historians and academics from around the globe to get them to help me tell the actual, historical story of how Christianity went from being a fringe, Jewish cult from the remote regions of the Roman Empire, to becoming the state religion. It’s the story from about 40 CE – 400 CE. It’s a secular film, not a faith-based film, but not an attack on Christianity, either. I’m just fascinated in the real history behind it.
While I’m on the subject of things I’ve finally finished, my new book THE PSYCHOPATH ECONOMY is also finished. It only took me SIX YEARS. Now I go looking for a publisher.
