"Avoided all the maddening, boring, and pretentious atmosphere that fogs difficult philosophy in an academic setting. Fire the pedantic scholars! Get the straight dope here!"

—Michael Gibson, Investor at 1517 Fund

"Geoff is insightful but unpretentious, welcoming but no nonsense, interdisciplinary yet precise... Helped to unlock the script I’m writing by deftly interpreting Girard vis-à-vis Kubrick."

—Leif Bergerud, PhD Student

"My thinking was challenged and reshaped... Brings together intellectuals, artists, and entrepreneurs. Collaborations have outlasted the length of the course."

—Raven Connolly
