Arthur folks doing stuff in 2022

Jay Babcock (editor):

Landline is a weekly-ish newsletter of ideas, nudges and recommendations that hopefully form a small bailiwick outside the cruddiness at large from the former editor of Arthur Magazine. Free to read, sustained by cheap subscriptions.”

Daniel “Cosmic Chambo” Chamberlin (contributing editor):

“Daniel Chamberlin is an artist, writer, yin yoga teacher and Zen student based on the low-rolling plains of East Central Indiana. He’s also the host of Inter-Dimensional Music, a weekly broadcast of “heavy mellow, kosmische slop, and void contemplation tactics,” heard since 2010 on Marfa Public Radio in Far West Texas and broadcasting on 99.1FM WQRT Indianapolis and LOOKOUT FM in Los Angeles. His creative practice combines visual art, installation, performance, and audio with mindfulness teaching based on the radical implications of yoga and Zen. His visual art is concerned with uncovering the transcendent and psychedelic aspects of otherwise mundane objects and experiences.”

Erik Davis (contributor, columnist):

“I am Erik Davis (, an author, scholar, award-winning journalist, podcaster, and professional talker. My wide-ranging work dances around the intersection of alternative religion, media, the popular imagination, and the cultural history of California. Burning Shore will continue to rove through this wide field, as I think about now and then, culture and catastrophe, through the lens of what I call ‘California consciousness.'”

Nance Klehm (columnist):

Douglas Rushkoff (contributor, columnist):

“Team Human is a podcast striving to amplify human connection. Each week we are engaging in real-time, no-holds-barred discussions with people who are hacking the machine to make it more compatible with human life, and helping redefine what it means to stay human in a digital age.”
