As promised, and just in time, here's the July solo show.
It was gonna be too annoying to have dropped a week for mere illness after 136 episodes delivered rain, hail, or shine in five countries, on boats, in hotel rooms, and so on.
So! The broken run has been mended with a Mars Retrograde ghost story.
This week, we welcome the one and only Richard Dolan to the show. As you’re very likely aware, Richard is the author and publisher of many books in the UFO field, as well as a radio host, trained historian and gifted public speaker.
We actually met out in the central Australian desert in May of this year and had the opportunity to chat about what’s right and what’s wrong with the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH).
For those of you who are unaware, ETH is the model for UFO phenomena that asserts that a majority or possibly all cases -credible ones, at least- are best explained as encounters with beings from other planets… rather than, say, extra dimensional, demonic, spiritual, earth-based or under-earth entities that predate mankind and all the other non-ETH hypotheses.
Anyway, splendid stuff.
Another solo show this week, inspired in part by Douglas Rushkoff's recent article on the grimness of the billionaire future.
We play around with notions of technology and personhood and agency and morality and AI.
Also hobbits. Enjoy.
This week, we welcome back to the show my good friend, Conner Habib. Writer, sex worker, activist, Anthroposophist and host of Against Everyone with Conner Habib.
And the topics under discussion are how desire destroys materialism and what a cosmic or fully haunted activism might look like.
