Dr Marty is a political scientist who has a doctorate in public policy. He is a regional burner and social researcher who also lectures in public management at the University of Melbourne. He writes about politics, public policy, and transformative event culture. He is also currently leading a process to design a new governance structure for Burning Seed. In this episode we invite Dr Marty for a chat so we can dive deeper into the two journal entries that Dr Marty had written about the burning man binary & identity, and the transformative event culture in Rainbow Serpent & burning man. Checkout his two articles linked below before listening to this podcast in order to get a better understanding of his think pieces.
