    Zombies Ate My Neighbors

    Zombies Ate My Neighbors

    Continuing with our October theme of heading into Halloween and this ominous 'Dark Winter', this week we are talking about zombies, voodoo, reanimated corpses and the American fantasy of being 'forced' to kill your neighbor in 'self-defense' scenarios. 

    Interlude: Fela Kuti - Zombie

    Outro: Zombies Ate My Neighbors Soundtrack NES

    Exercising Your Inner Daemons

    Exercising Your Inner Daemons

    Continuing the theme of the month and last week's talk about parasitism, this week we're talking exorcism in media and history. While often considered through the monocle lens of priests, holy water, demonic possession and the cloistered atmosphere of Catholicism, our conversation leads us beyond the reductionist understanding and places demonic possession and exorcism along a continuum of attempted therapeutic and medical treatments that have versions and variations across all traditions and time. We're also quick to point out that most of it is b******t. 



    Interlude: Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells Pt. I

    Outro: Rhythm & Noise - Schismatic

    Loving the Alien

    Loving the Alien

    Picking up from where we left off on last week's episode on Gnosticism, we explore the 'ancient astronauts' theory a bit further from a psychological and mythological perspective. Using the Alien series as our point of departure we explore a wide range of topics and themes including panspermia, biowarfare, biblical allegory, serpent energy, ancient deities, magic, parasitism, corporatism and the hubristic search for immortality.

    Gnosticism... Does it Exist?

    Gnosticism... Does it Exist?

    This week we're discussing the confounding subject of Gnosticism, adding our own confusions and insights to the mix, as we touch on archons, archangels, apocrypha, orthodoxy, Sophia, the discovery of the Nag Hammadi and a PLEROMA of other related tangents...

    Bart of Darkness and the Secret Sharer

    Bart of Darkness and the Secret Sharer

    Collin (@flavorstraw) fills in for a solo episode to discuss depictions of the soul in popular media, specifically, as seen in The Simpsons episode Bart Sells His Soul. While teasing out the theological and metaphysical implications--highlighting Lisa's profound insights as they relate to the the value of one's own soul--Collin compares this storyline with the one found in Joseph Conrad's The Secret Sharer, showing that here again, we have a story in which the value and status of one's soul is examined and is recognized as something not to be taken for granted. 

    Interlude: The Residents - Phantom 

    Outro: Johnny Moggi Quintet - Night's Perfume

    Losing Our Shit Round Deux: The Loosening

    Losing Our Shit Round Deux: The Loosening

    Despite making our way into autumn, things continue to heat up both figuratively and literally. The death of Ruth Bader-Ginsburg has ignited a new wave of fiery ardor among Democrats. The Jefferson County grand jury ruling in the murder of Breonna Taylor shows yet again how broken our legal system is. Power continues to insulate itself with human shields. Bots and humans compete for authenticity in mimetic rivalry. So-called ‘personalities’ and gatekeepers steer attention and allegiances to the all-absorbing kayfabe of our aestheticized political system. It would seem we are still collectively losing our shit but in the meantime we might as well dispel illusions and smash false idols. 



    Music:

    The Sugar Hill Gang - Rapper's Delight (Granny remix)

    Frank Zappa - Son of Orange County (Live)

    Black Sabbath - Into the Void
