Ged Skeptic Chat ft. Tim Osman & Gempanda (17-Feb-2017)

February 17, 2017

On Sunday, 12-Feb-2017, I took part in an unplanned, live google hangout hosted by Ged Skeptic, which also involved notorious YouTube 'truther troll' Tim Osman and British normie Gempanda. This mp3 file includes the section of the call involving myself as well as some thoughts recorded in post-production a few days later. The broadcast took place just hours after the leading Flat Earth spruikers had begun promoting an 'international convention' to take place later in 2017. Topics of conversation include the FE scene and its many charlatans and suckers, the existence (or otherwise) of dinosaurs and nuclear bombs, the 'truth' scene in general, and broader questions of epistemology and what can be known.

This is the pilot episode of a new series of podcasts I plan to release over the coming months. We have all taken different paths to arrive at our current outlooks and worldviews, and sometimes it can be useful to reflect on our journey thus far. By interviewing a range of individuals who have spent some time engaged in the process I refer to as 'deprogramming', my hope is to learn more about the Lie System in which we live, as well as the types of people who have spent their own time studying it. This is why the series is entitled 'Perspectives': each interview will offer the listener a deeper understanding the guest's point of view: not only what it is but, just as importantly, how it came to be.

In this episode I spoke with Negentropic, a man based in the US who posts his thoughts across a range of messageboards including the David Icke forums. He is the man behind the 'Negentropic Chronicles', a series of marathon podcasts which feature clips from a variety of alternative/independent media outlets, archival audio/footage, and music you might not hear elsewhere. Neg's experiences with the 9/11 'truth movement' - and the various boobytraps and false prophets connected to it - offer invaluable insights into the broader 'truth comunity': how it operates, what kind of people are involved, and so forth.
