David Forbes is a journalist, writer, and analyst based in Asheville. Since a young age, he's enjoyed taking systems and ideas apart to see how they work — and how they can change. He created the Breaking Time to help analyze our current era of upheaval and try to figure out practical ways forward from a variety of perspectives.
David works as the senior news reporter for the award-winning Mountain Xpress weekly. He's had work featured by Coilhouse and the Sunlight Foundation, among others. He also writes way too much on Twitter.
Damien Williams works in areas where he can explore the ways in which philosophy, religious studies, pop-culture, weird science, and the academic study of the occult intersect. Damien has worked to bring media professionals, academicians, and non-academic audiences together to investigate the role and impact of the popular arts in academia and the world.
Damien is a graduate of Georgia State University's Master's program in Philosophy and Religious Studies with presentations at four international conferences, and he is published in the compilation, The Immanence of Myth, which was used as part of the curriculum for SUNY Binghamton's course, "The Apocalyptic Imaginary."
