Patrick invites guest hosts podcaster, Roejen, from the Project Archivist podcast and author Eric Wojciehowski to discuss UFO subcultures, intelligence agency disinformation campaigns, and black budget tomfoolery. We discuss the possibility of the United States government using UFO sightings as cover for black budget projects. We also touch on the history of the UFO subculture and the seeding of agents within the subculture to monitor larger groups and political movements.
This week Patrick invites guest author, history professor, and podcaster, Aaron Gulyas on the show to discuss his book Conspiracy Theories: The Roots, Themes, and Propagation of Paranoid Political and Cultural Narratives
Patrick picks Aaron brain on how these narratives have always been part of the undercurrent in American culture and politics. When did they stop being something fun to peek at in zines and message boards? How have they transformed over the decades? Finally, how has social media mutated them into something more sinister and infected the mainstream in the past two decades?
Patrick invites Roejen on from the Project Archivist to discuss guys who claim to have made time machines, guys who built nuclear piles, John Titor defenders, DARPA and where you can buy the time machine featured in Napolean Dynamite.
Cyberpunk dystopia of 1992 is here, thanks to Peter Theil, Zuckerberg, and the FCC. Patrick fears Big Brother is your next door neighbor. Dennis fears the “deep state” of kid’s with cell phones. Patrick wonders if we are heading towards a transhuman dystopic far right silicon valley libertarian hellscape? We wrap things up with another round of “are we still a republic?”
Dennis thinks we are looking down the barrel of either World War Three or an American Reich. Patrick tries to calm the waters by hoping America is on the precipice of great radical change that will change the political landscape.
Two educators attempt to educate one another on a subject using a thought experiment or random thesis as the premise. A big what if show includes four different scenarios. World War Three via Cuban Missile Crisis, Baseball Diplomacy opening Cuba in the 1970s, The .Revolution never gets off the ground, finally for fun would the Spanish-American War ending in 1903 result in Cuban statehood.
