Other Life is a newsletter and podcast by social scientist Justin Murphy.

The phrase other life comes from Michel Foucault's final lecture series.

"The third important way of being militant is militancy as bearing witness by one’s life in the form of a style of existence... Ensuring that one’s life bears witness, breaks, and has to break with the conventions, habits, and values of society.
It must manifest directly, by its visible form, its constant practice, and its immediate existence, the concrete possibility and the evident value of an other life, which is the true life."
