    COLD WAR 2.0 & THE APOCALYPSE WITH JJ SHURTE

    COLD WAR 2.0 & THE APOCALYPSE WITH JJ SHURTE

    My guest for this episode is JJ Shurte. A post-apocalyptic writer and creator of the post-apocalyptic writing guide.

    I first met JJ on Twitter where we’ve exchanged many tweets about the apocalypse, writing, gaming and photography and other interesting topics.

    A little over a year ago, I interviewed JJ for my blog, and now that I have a podcast I thought he would be an interesting guest to have on. During our conversation we catch up on life, talk about the post-apocalyptic genre and some of the current events going on in Asia, where he lives.

    I had a great time talking with JJ and I’m glad he agreed to come on the show.

    Aside from our occasional exchanges on Twitter, we haven’t really connected since our last collaboration, when I interviewed JJ for my Creating Awesome project. That was a little over a year ago and our entire world has changed since then.

    So before we get into the main topic of our discussion, JJ gives a brief background about himself, and what he's up to these days.

    End of the cold war

    Born in 1985 which is near the end of the cold war, JJ shares some memories he has of the events from the cold war at that early age.

    He remembers the Fall of the Berlin Wall and the Collapse of the Soviet Union.

    He also recollects some stories that his parents and other family members shared with him about the Soviet Union and the impending threat of nuclear war.

    Cold War 2.0 Increasing Tensions in Asia

    While the rest of the World is thinking about the effects of COVID19, protests and riots breaking out in major cities throughout the US and other countries, there seems to be an increase in tensions between the US and China and it centers on Taiwan.

    Just prior to this episode I read and article about this in the Nikkei Asian Review and we discuss this at length.

    Risk of war is rising rapidly, and China may seek to push tensions even higher

    Taiwan is potentially a powder keg that could kick off a major conflict between the worlds two largest super powers and lead to a shooting war.

    Post-Apocalyptic Fiction

    One of the books JJ has written is The Post-Apocalyptic Writing Guide and is partly the reason why we first got to know each other.

    UFOs AND NUKES WITH JEREMY McGOWAN - DEAD HAND RADIO 15

    UFOs AND NUKES WITH JEREMY McGOWAN - DEAD HAND RADIO 15

    My guest on this episode of Dead Hand Radio is Jeremy McGowan.

    Jeremy is a US Air Force veteran, a researcher and UFO experiencer.

    I first became aware of Jeremy when he appeared on season 2, episode 3 of Unidentified - America’s UFO Investigation. That episode was titled UFOs vs Nukes and Jeremy shared details of his encounter with a UAP during that episode.

    Since then Jeremy has become active on Twitter and shared more details of his experience on various podcasts. Jeremy and I connected on Twitter and exchanged several messages which resulted in a meeting over lunch and a long discussion about Nukes, UFOs and his experience in the military. We also talked about his relationship with members of TTSA and his plans to pursue his interest in the UFO phenomena.

    Fast forward about a month, I invited Jeremy to join me on Dead Hand Radio to talk about some of our shared interests, and the timing could not have been better.

    This is one of the longest and most interesting conversations I’ve recorded and we covered a tremendous amount of information. There’s a lot of new ground that Jeremy has never discussed before. And we get philosophical about some of life’s most intriguing mysteries.

    Jeremy is a fascinating individual and a rigorous investigator and I believe his contribution to the UFO community has only just begun.

    I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed creating it.
