KMO and Silas welcome C Derick Varn to C-Realm Radio to discuss criticisms of the Left from the Left. Derick has lived in South Korea, Mexico and now Egypt, and he shares his experience of culture shock when he returns to his native Georgia after a long absence.
KMO and Silas welcome Jonathan Thompson of the Psychedelic Parenting Podcast to the C-Realm to discuss Jonathan's vision for establishing a cultural context that will support people who want to be honest with their families about their use of psychedelic sacraments. Silas describes how his school approaches drug education, and it has nothing to do with D.A.R.E..
KMO talks with Duncan Crary about how small towns and cities, as well as small business owners can interface with the mainstream media and harness the power of spectacle to promote themselves. They also discuss the dark side of media manipulation as exemplified in the book Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator by Ryan Holiday.
The C-Realm podcast used to be ABOUT peak oil. Now, it's a topic to be checked in with from time to time, and this is one of those times. KMO talks with author and self-described heretic, Liam Scheff about the prospects for life after the oil crash. This is a continuation of a conversation that began on C-Realm Radio 032.
Given the overlap in their interests and the self-contained nature of the Peak Oil community, it's odd that Liam Scheff is just now making his C-Realm debut in February of 2017. In this introductory conversation, Liam describes his writing career and his current health struggles and then launches into an explanation of how the frustrated 9-11 Truth movement metamorphosed into something malignant and fueled the rising popularity of the Flat Earth belief system. Thereafter, KMO and Liam re-visit some familiar Peak Oil themes and consider timelines for collapse. The conversation will continue in C-Realm Podcast episode 512.
KMO treks through the snow to bring you this week's episode of C-Realm Radio. Chad Hill, the author of the HipCrimeVocab blog, is the guest in the first hour. Chad has written a 4-part series on an emerging alternative story about how and why humans created the first proto-cities like Jericho and Çatalhöyük. In the second hour, drug writer and Psymposia host, Lex Pelger calls in to talk about his current and upcoming projects.
On February 1st, 2017, Brietbart News technology editor, Milo Yiannopolous, was scheduled to give the final lecture on a US speaking tour prior to the publication of his upcoming book. The event was canceled when about 150 black-clad and masked people set fires, assaulted people waiting to get in the lecture hall, and goaded the police by throwing firecrackers at them. Some consider this a heroic example of anti-fascist "direct action." Others see it as leftist hooliganism. KMO and Silas welcome Keith Preston of AttackTheSystem.com back to the C-Realm to talk about the history, beliefs, and tactics of the antifa (anti-fascist) movement.
