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

Episodes

The question of the day is... does your upbringing determine your future?

If you've been listening to this show for any length of time, you've likely heard me talk about the camp for abused and neglected foster kids that I volunteer at every summer. Well, camp for 2019 wrapped up about a month ago and this year, I had the pleasure of getting to know and serve with one of our newest volunteers, Chris Gargia. At the time, I didn't know it, but Chris was actually a foster kid himself.

The day we got back from camp, Chris and I grabbed some drinks and chatted briefly about his story and I immediately decided it was one worth sharing with you guys and the rest of the world.

Chris' story is a heavy one with many ups and many more downs. It is a glimpse at an example of what these kids truly go thru in the system and ultimately (spoiler alert) a story of how one troubled child who spent his whole life burning bridges, can turn things around and right the trajectory of his life and likely the life of those around him. 

His story is long and worth it, so sit back, get uncomfortable, and enjoy the first half.

All that and more on today's episode of The System is Down #124: True Stories of a Troubled Foster Kid w. Chris Garcia (Pt. 1)

As the pace picks up tremendously, Scott frantically blows through as much as he can remember to keep you up to speed with the ridiculous suicide of Jeff Epstein, the uncovering of the Spygate scandal in the public eye, and a few odds and ends and lost trains of thought along the way. 

Stay Weird.

The question of the day is.... Did we go?

It's no secret that more people than ever are beginning to question the validity of the Apollo moon missions of the late 60's and early 70's. How did Nasa pull of such an incredible feat in human history that they admit they no longer have the technology to accomplish now?

There are many oddities in the official story and my guest today is on a mission to expose them. Dr Rasa Viharii is a theoretical physicist for the Chinese government who turned down a job working for Nasa in the 90's. Since then, he has worked in many areas of controversial scientific discovery, like free energy and... well, moon research, of course and he has a lot to share about how the rest of the world perceives our American moon missions.

Why is China not exposing the hoax? What happens when you send turtles thru the Van Allen radiation belts? And what are those crazy rich Asians really up to, anyway?

This week on QAnon Chronicles, we get into a relatively brief but meaty dive into the too-neatly-timed-to-be-coincidence shootings over the past week, and a few potential explanations for the FBI's curious decision to designate conspiracy theories as domestic terror threats. Featuring the hushed tones of Scott on family vacation with a bunch of progressives, desperately avoiding being overheard and shunned for his Nazism for the rest of the week. 

Stay Weird.

The question of the day is... How much is your soul worth, metaphorically and literally?

On today's episode our good ol' buddy, Remso Martines is back with a new literary project, a new podcast, and as always... a new job.

Remso's new book (How to Succeed at Politics and Other Forms of Devil Worship) takes a half fictional, half non-fictional look at the seedy world of politics and what it really takes to be successful. For now, Remso has vowed to flee from the political scene in attempt to maintain what little soul he has left after being heavily steeped in the culture for much of his adult life.  

What is Remso so worked up about now? Is Remso too far gone for salvation? And what ever happened to our bonus show, Would You Rather Wednesday?
All that and oh so much more on today's episode of The System is Down #122: Getting the Hell out of Politics & Devil Worship w. Remso Martinez

The question of the day is... How much will it take for everyone to say "enough is enough" and move to a new platform?

With all the banning, censoring, demonetizing, deplatforming, and general Orwellian stifling of information and thoughts that we're experiencing here in 2019, it's only a matter of time before an open-minded platform rises to power, right?... I mean.... right?! Come on.

It seems like the biggest issue that is keeping these new platforms from becoming more of a staple is just laziness. We say we don't like the way things are, but we are unwilling to try a better option because it's different and has a slight new learning curve. 

Today's episode is my conversation with Jeremy Kauffman, who is doing his part to provide you and I with an alternative with his blockchain based censor-free video streaming service called LBRY. In the convo, we dug into what sparked the idea, what blockchain is, what LBRY provides that the others do not, the upsides, the downsides, and all the sides in between. 

I personally think it's well past time for a tidal shift to bring open-mindedness and good ol' fashion fun free thought back to the internet and LBRY just might be the way to do it. All that and much more on today's episode of The System is Down #121: LBRY vs Youtube: A New Hope for a Censor-Free Platform w. Jeremy Kauffman

The question of the day is for you introverted house cat types of people.... Are you comfortable creating art and presenting or performing it for the world?

Today's episode is my conversation with Nick and Lizzie Pecone of the Sounds Like Liberty podcast. We started out on topic, talking about introverts in art, podcasting, stage performance, etc. However, as us introverted weirdos tend to do, we jumped around and covered a whole gaggle of other topics as well, from art to religion to conspiracies to the federal reserve and beyond. 

It was a really fun chat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and maybe learn something along the way thru this peek inside the minds of the shifty shadow-dwellers known as introverts.

In this week's installment of Q-Anon Chronicles, we get into some meaty "Q Proofs", do our best to keep up with the Epstein Developments, anxiously await the "Question" (Mr President, is Q real?), and bond over inconsiderate drive-thru patrons. It's another hot one.

Stay Weird.
