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

Episodes

 The question of the day is... Transgenderism?... That's it because there are so many questions around this topic. Should they get to choose their bathrooms, should they get to participate in the sports categories that they identify as, are their brains in the wrong body, should it be treated as a mental illness, and so on and so forth?...

On today's episode I brought my TriPartisan (Democrat, Republican, and Libertarian) team back on to discuss this sticky subject and the implications that it has and could potentially have on our society moving forward. 

While none of us are transgendered individuals, I think it's an important one to talk about and break down. This show is all about discussing the uncomfortable topics and disagreeing in a civil manner and that's exactly what we did. 

We all agree with the idea of "don't be a dick", but there are a lot of implications here, lines to definite, and... dare I say it?... slippery slopes that we need to process.

All of that and more on today's episode of The System is Down: Tripartisan Triggering: Transgenderism

Let's get weird!

Well, we're back again with another unorthodox episode to bring you another update on this case. Some strange twists have popped up and it's getting harder and harder to know who to trust. Either way, something fishy is going on and I believe there is more to this than we're being led to believe. You be the judge.

Well, we're continuing with the unconventionality because I feel pretty strongly about this case and keeping you guys and gals up to date on what's happening. If you're not familiar, check out episode 59 where we broke down the first days of Veterans on Patrol's attempt to expose child sex slavery camps and what appears to be the media and government's attempt to stop them. 

#OperationBackYardBrawl is a prime example of what this show is all about, Questioning Everything and Staying Uncomfortable. These brave men and women are putting politics and differences aside, putting themselves in harms way, and doing the hard tasks that the authorities not only refuse to do, but seem to be trying to prevent.

In today's episode, Craig and I continue our dig and bring you the latest updates to the best of our knowledge. This case is unfolding quickly in real time right before our eyes and while everyone else chooses to ignore it, as long as there is new evidence to report, you can bet we're going to continue to report on it. Help spread the word. We need all eyes on this case before it disappears.

Your regular funcomfortable content will return to it's normal schedule soon. In the meantime...

Well ladies and gentlemen, this episode is a very unconventional one for this show. We were first alerted to this case on Tuesday and we recorded this episode documenting every thing that we knew so far about it. The plan was to release this in the normal Monday morning slot on June 11, 2018. However, this case is unfolding so rapidly in front of our eyes and because I think it is so important to get out there, I decided to do an early release.

As more evidence comes to light, we will try to keep you informed on what we know as much as possible. There's a chance that we'll have another full episode on the topic come Monday with completely new findings. I can't say for sure yet, but stay tuned. 

There are some dark forces at play here and it really seems like someone is trying very hard to keep the public from finding out about it. We're not going to let that happen.

The question of the day is... "Psychedelics: Good? Bad? Dangerous? Revolutionary?"

Of course there is still a massive stigma around this topic and it's very likely the result of lack of education or experience. From anarchy to death metal, people are always the most frightened of what they just don't understand.

I myself, have personally never tried psychedelics, so I cannot and will not speak to the values or harm, but I am fascinated by many of the stories I've heard from people that do. Psychedelics are a profound and largely unexplainable phenomenon that exists in our world and I believe we are doing a great disservice to our species in not investigating their effects further.

My guest today, I suppose you could say is a psychedelics connoisseur of sorts; Mike Brancatelli of the Mikeadelic podcast. Mike has gone to great lengths to respectfully study and educate people on the topic. 

In this episode we discussed Mike's history that lead to his fascination with the psychedelic substances, his latest Iowaska adventure, his best and worst trips, and much more. 

Is Mike Brancatelli just some EDM hippie burnout junkie, or is he just some dude in search of his best life? Find out now on today's episode of The System is Down.  

Question Everything. Stay Uncomfortable.

They say "Don't meet your heroes".... Well, at least don't go on their podcast and debate them on Flat Earth. ;)

This bonus episode is my discussion with Matt Macdonald (The Classic Crime) and Nate Henry (Sherwood), where they invited me on their podcast, Don't Feed the Trolls, for a little Flat Earth chat and oh, you know I had fun with it. 

While I've been a big fan of Matt's music for about 12-13 years, Matt's certainly not a huge fan of my thoughts and interests. Haha. Regardless, I had a great time and would happily do it again.

This episode was recorded about six months ago, so I don't remember all that was said or if I stand behind all of my arguments, but The System is Down is all about questioning everything, thinking outside the box, and having civil uncomfortable discussion about topics that most people avoid, so this is right up our alley. 

Do I hold my own? Am I a shill? Am I a troll? Am I an idiot? You be the judge!

The question of the day is, should people get married young? I personally got married as young as I possibly could and it's had many a rocky season, but I have a plethora of friends who seem to all have the same story as each other... they got married young, it lasted for a few years and fell apart. What is the cause of this trend or epidemic? Should you be making such life changing commitments several years before your brain, personality, and identity are even fully developed? What do you think?

On today's episode, I had a funcomfortable chat with two of my good friends, Kyle Richards and Jonas Winn, who fell into this trend of short-lived young marriages. They were kind enough to share their stories and compare their experiences on how it all went down, from their perspective. What are the reasons, where are they now, and would they do it again? All of that and more on today's episode of The System is Down "Young Marriage = Divorce?"

Divorce is never not messy, but custody wars are hell. Today’s episode is my conversation with Alex Jones’ (Infowars) ex-wife Kelly Jones, who is smack dab in the middle of an ugly uphill custody battle with a man of great wealth, influence, and power.

You might think Alex Jones is maverick, an info warrior, or just a funny meme about gay frogs, but today you’ll hear the dark reality of who Alex Jones really is when the cameras aren’t rolling and what it’s like to fight for the right to raise your own children.

All of that and more on today’s episode of The System is Down with Kelly Jones.

55: MOM w. My Mom

What do you do when your mom finds out that you dig into and believe some crazy things... things that might go against how she raised you to think?...

Whereas some might try to avoid bringing it up, as the host of the uncomfortable conversations podcast, it would be pretty hypocritical of me to not just invite her on the show to have a one on one uncomfortable conversation about it. So, that's what I did.

Enjoy. Happy Mother's Day. Let's get weird!

Do you just love your daily 9-5 job and working for the weekend? What if you didn't have to clock-in and clock-out of the system every day? What if you didn't have to wear pants to work? What if you were able to get paid handsomely for something that you're actually passionate about?


Today's episode is my conversation with the great Jason Stapleton of The Jason Stapleton Program, where we discussed all the joys and struggles of entrepreneurship. Jason shares his back story from childhood to the Marines to self-made entrepreneur and beyond. If you think there's something standing in your way of pursuing your passion, it's probably YOU and hopefully this conversation will be the boot that you need to go out and make it happen. 

So, if you think that this just sounds like some sort of self-help motivational speech... you're probably right and to that I say... you're welcome! Go get it!
