Show Notes:

Caveat Magister, aka Benjamin Wax, for the last ten years, has been actively writing about Burning Man culture and engaging with Burning Man at the cutting edge of its philosophy, composing over 250 articles for the Burning Man website.

By 2015, this work had made him, outside of Larry Harvey and his fellow founders, one of the leading interpreters of Burning Man within its own culture.

In 2015, Larry Harvey asked him, along with Burning Man’s Director of Education, Stuart Mangrum, to sit on the “Philosophical Center” of the Burning Man nonprofit.
