Conspiracies, Politics, and Religion: Questioning Everything and Staying Uncomfortable

Episodes

On today's episode, I had the great pleasure of chatting with United States Libertarian Vice Presidential Candidate in the 2016 election, Judd Weiss. We discussed Judd's time in politics, his fantastic art, and what he believes is the real problem with politics. Enjoy!

And if you'd like to hear the second half of the interview, where Judd answered questions from our forum members and tried to convince me to do drugs, you can get all of our bonus content by joining The Downers Club, which is currently only $1 per month until the end of the year, by going to http://tsidpod.com/support

Today's episode is a delightfully uncomfortable one, as my brother-in-law, Cole Elliott and I flesh out our recent disagreements in real time from behind a microphone. Cole takes some issues with certain conspiracy theories, the way I conduct myself in conspiracy conversations, and more. Will this be the end of our friendship? Find out now on The System is Down. Let's get weird!

On today’s episode, I had the pleasure of once again chatting with film director, Spencer Folmar about his upcoming film, Generational Sins, which comes out this Friday! Since our last episode, I have watched a pre-screening of the film, so we got to really dig into the movie more in depth. 

If you listen to this show regularly, you’ll know that this was much more than a promotional pat on the back. I was happy to share my thoughts good and bad and even poke a little fun at a few things in the film with Spencer. You can’t set out to make a real movie showing real gritty life and expect your reviewers to not be real with their takeaway. Spencer was a great sport, as always, and it was a really fun real conversation and a pleasure. Enjoy!

On today’s episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with the great Nate Henry of the Don’t Feed the Trolls Podcast and the band Sherwood. Nate was recently a guest on The Bad Christian Podcast (which is one of my personal favorite shows), to talk about Bigfoot and conspiracy theories, but when tangent talks on current events went on for a little longer than expected, the conspiracy talk, which I so greatly enjoy, got cut a little short. So I thought it would be fun to get Nate on The System is Down, where we really let our freak-flags fly, and he was gracious enough to give me his time.

On the main episode, we dug into primarily Bigfoot and the Jesus Conspiracy, while on the bonus hour (which will be coming out later this week) we touched on everything from Aliens, to the moon landing, to 9/11, JFK and much more.

If you’re interested in the bonus hour, you can get access to that and more by clicking the link below and joining our brand new Downers Club.

But regardless of whatever you decide to do… Let’s get weird.

On today's episode, I had the pleasure of chatting once again with the great CR Pendleton. We talked about technology, theology, predictions of tech effect on future generations, the inevitable uprise of transhumans, and so much more. Enjoy.

On today's episode, I continue my fun and insightfully civil discussion with three guys from three different walks of life who have come to three different conclusions in politics; Jon Schweppe (Republican), Ryan Beckenbaugh (Democrat), and Marc Clair (Libertarian). We tackle everything from identity politics to Trump's wall and much more.

Today's episode was an extremely fun one. I got a Democrat, a Libertarian, and a Republican together to discuss hot button political and social issues and somehow... everyone was civil and respectful to each other. Go figure...

The conversation went longer than it was intended to, but far shorter than I would have like, so this is the first of another two-parter, the second of which will be coming out next Monday. My awesome guests were, Ryan Beckenbaugh, a lawyer and ardent Bernie Sanders Supporter, Marc Clair, the host of the Libertarian-centric Lions of Liberty Podcast, and Jon Schweppe, a republican writer forThe National Pulse.

So, a democrat, a libertarian, and a republican walk into a bar... Sounds like the start of a joke right? Enjoy.

On today's episode, I'm flying solo for the first time!... I've got some updates on plans for the show, I answer questions submitted by you guys in the TSID Forum, and you'll get a little sneak peek of the bonus episode of Lions of Liberty that I went on to defend the possibilities of a flat Earth. All of that and more, on this, the first AMA: Questions & DANswers episode of The System is Down. Enjoy!

On today’s episode, I got to chat with an old friend of mine who I have a whole lot in common with and don’t really get to talk to very often, so the conversation might jump around a little bit, because that’s how conversations work.

The initial discussion was sparked by him kind of loosely challenging what is my sign-off at the end of the show every week, "Question Everything and Stay Uncomfortable" and if I’m truly proven wrong about something, I am happy to admit it and change my evil ways…. So, will I be forced to change my sign off to something else?… Well, you’ll have to stick around to the end of the show to find out for yourself.

On today's episode, I had another great group chat with new-commer, JB Bryant along with frequent ranters, Craig Smoldt and Keaton Johnson, to discuss the man, the myth, the legend, Alex Jones of Infowars. No matter what you think about the guy, no-one can honestly deny that he is a force to be reckoned with, so reckon we shall.
