Seasteading allows people to live on the ocean detached from the burdens of land-based life. Bringing together libertarians, science fiction fans, and engineers, there's a place in the seasteading community for everyone. On this episode of Campfire, Jackson sat down with Carly Jackson, the Development Director of the Seasteading Institute. The two of them chatted about what seasteading is, why it’s important, the legal landscape around it, and the practical considerations before launching a seastead. If you’re interested in how cities can exist off of land, this is definitely an episode to check out!
