TVP #186: Death Athletic – A Dissident Architecture with Jessica Solce

On this episode of The Vonu Podcast, I welcome cypherpunk & crypto-anarchist documentarian, Jessica Solce.

On October 21st, her new film, DEATH ATHLETIC: A DISSIDENT ARCHITECTURE will release to the public.

This documentary features the full story of Cody Wilson, Defense Distributed, 3D printed guns up to today, Cody’s modern perspectives/outlooks, and much more…

It also includes a minute or two from The Vonu Podcast, and you can even see me when I attended the Defense Distributed Press Conference in Austin, following the news of Cody’s arrest/resignation.

Make sure to check out Jessica’s work, especially this newest doc, and share it around!
