Meta Fe | Episode #000b | ‘Why Do FE Promoters Censor Skepticism?’ (14-Nov-2016)

November 15, 2016

The LobeBusters and Potatoheads claim to be here for truth, so why do they censor dissent in the livechat? If they have a 'working FE model', why do they get so upset when people ask where to find it? When did honest skepticism become so taboo? In this episode of Meta Fe, we look at these questions and more. Then to round out the show, a surprise cameo, with some thought-provoking questions...

[Part 2 of 2]

This is the third 'pilot' episode of Meta Fe, the latest podcast/vodcast hosted by JLB. Season One is due to launch in November 2016. Meta Fe is a show above and beyond the regular Flat Earth scene on YouTube. Rather than petty debates about the alleged shape of the earth, Meta Fe is dedicated to the deeper questions which have arisen as a result of the Flat Earth renaissance. For more information, watch/listen to Episode #0, where all is explained.

Impromptu Chat #09 | Lessons Learned [Pt. 2] (2-Nov-2016)

Impromptu Chat #09 | Lessons Learned [Pt. 2] (2-Nov-2016)

November 4, 2016

We all like to think we have ‘learned’ things from our time in this scene on the internet, but how many people can admit to learning from mistakes made while in said scene? What started as a long-awaited Impromptu Chat with YouTube’s most infamous ‘truther troll’ Tim Osman (a.k.a. Cognitive Dissonance) soon became a trip down memory lane, beginning with the halcyon days of ‘We’ll Do It Live’ and Jeffrey C of FreeRadioRevolution circa 2014, to the ‘truther wars’ and TransAsia GE235 saga of early 2015, and then the Flat Earth renaissance which continues to this day.

Later in the show we were joined by Adam Moyer who, along with Tim and another YouTuber (named EdUpsideDownHead), was instrumental in first exposing not only the cultish nature of the leading Flat Earth proponents on YouTube, but also the susceptibility of the average person to fall prey to ‘movements’ on the internet. Tim and Adam shared their experiences with the Flat Earth scene and what they had come to realise by speaking out against it.

Then for the final portion of the show (which corresponds with the beginning of Pt. 2) an unexpected addition named Cathexis made his way to the panel, describing himself as a ‘Flat Earth apologist’ but soon proving to be a lot smarter than your typical Flat Earth believer. This led to a productive and jovial roundtable discussion about a number of ‘facts’ commonly accepted as true by the average person, with some surprising admissions from certain panel members…
