    The gentleman goes by the Zman. It is a pseudonym as I believe he had an IT consulting business in Baltimore and needed the anonymity due to his “hateful” comments according to the likes of the SPLC and others of their ilk. I believe he recently retired and has moved to my neck of the woods in Appalachia. He has a weekly podcast and writes articles every weekday. He comments on lots of different cultural subjects. He refers to his style of politics as dissident politics. Think of a combination of Ann Coulter, Jared Taylor, and Peter Brimelow.

    I find him particularly useful as he has a knack for recommending sources that can explain important concepts. For example, he regularly cites The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of the World Order by Samuel Huntington written in 1996. This book predicted post Cold War geopolitics and has been remarkably prescient. He recommended Naked Statistics by Charles Wheelan. You have stated that you believe most people are innumerate. Wheelan’s book would remedy this as it is for people like me who suffered a public school education and never really went to college. It’s the perfect statistics book for the non academic. I wasn’t at all surprised to read his article where he recommended The Blue Book. The Zman described your book as a classic and he can recognize most people in the fitness industry are charlatans and grifters. I know you read a lot and may not have time for more, but I find his articles really insightful.
