This is a regular monthly AMA (ask me anything) session with Rebel Wisdom founders David Fuller and Alexander Beiner. They are an opportunity to ask any questions, about guests, about any of the films and topics featured on Rebel Wisdom, and also any questions about the Digital Campfire itself. All questions, criticisms and ideas welcome!
Our monthly Campfire Gathering is open to all members. A place to connect with other RW members, talk about what's going on behind the scenes, ask questions or comment on Rebel Wisdom content, and practice live sensemaking around what's going on in the world.

This is one of the most influential works of philosophical exploration of all time. Jonathan Rowson returns to the Digital Campfire to explain why he has chosen this book as one the most impactful he has even read. Originally published in 1974, Robert M. Pirsig's classic is part road trip, part deep philosophical investigation into the roots of both Western and Eastern thought, framed around the central enigmatic question, what is "Quality".
Jonathan Rowson is a philosopher and chess grandmaster. Curtently the director of the organisation Perpectiva, he was the Director of the Social Brain Centre at the United Kingdom's Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA), he authored numerous research reports on behavior change, climate change, and spirituality.

JRR Tolkein's Lord of the Rings is one of the most influential works of fiction of the 20th century. At the time he wrote it Tolkein was part of a group of writers and thinkers based in Oxford, England, who were known as the 'Inklings'. The group included C. S. Lewis (Narnia) and many other significant figures. Mark Vernon is a writer and a historian of the group, with a particular interest in the work of Inklings member Owen Barfield. This event is part of Tim Lott's 'Power of Story' series, looking at the impact of great stories on culture.
Stories are everywhere. Not only in books or films or dramas, but in politics, in advertising, in our very heads. They are ubiquitous because humans cannot live without them. But what is a story? What makes it work? This is a series hosted by Tim Lott, a novelist of 25 years standing and a veteran story teacher and mentor. Together we will examine the story of - story. Where stories come from - and what makes one come alive and speak to us all.
