The Nick Margerrison podcast.
Former Kerrang! Radio & LBC presenter Nick Margerrison's fortnightly podcast is a continuation of his often eclectic radio career.
Building on the legacy of the critically acclaimed first series "The Cult Of Nick" this podcast looks at how topics which were explored back then are now considered to be the bare bones of what is frequently termed 'the intellectual dark web'.
A proud Discordian Nick's take is always sincere but never too serious.

0022 RADIO SHOW | Phone in - what's going on?
The mask debate, confused, I am, thoughts?
As it wears on I've found my opinion has bounced around. There are a number of factors rubbing up against each other. Let's kick off with the most controversial:
"Bill Gates: I met with Jeffrey Epstein because ‘he knows a lot of rich people’":
"Bill Gates Met With Jeffrey Epstein Many Times, Despite His Past"
To me the above is quite an incredible news story. It proves nothing beyond what is written above but it's weird isn't it? They're all part of a network of people who are happy to chill with a guy who sells kids because money and because power.
Here's the Bloomberg Opinion piece we link to: https://twitter.com/bopinion/status/1311764942308208644
This comes towards the end of the podcast... scary times.
The music in this piece is provided by Mike Richmond, here: https://mikerichmond.bandcamp.com/
And Complexi-Tales, here: https://complexi-tales.bandcamp.com/

https://theretinalcircus.bandcamp.com/ - you can hear some of his music in the background toward the end of the call. A high quality audio version awaits, go listen now!
We mention the band he played with - highly regarded by those in the know - "Matthew Edwards and The Unfortunates":

And his article, which we discuss, is here: https://medium.com/@TomJames1/egos-icke-and-the-coronavirus-conspiracy-84aecfe6d16b
Ok, so you get the format? You ring in, or more likely we set up a zoom room or a skype call, and boom I'll pop you on. I edit it a bit but not to any huge degree. Just feels like the right thing to do with this platform at the moment...
Hail Eris, All Hail Discordia; The Goddess is coming, rejoice, run away, return!
The Money Burning Guy and a mask debate
A sharp guide to wealth management from one of the worlds hottest experts on the topic.
0019 INTERVIEW | Direct Democracy, Libertarianism & "Britain's Vilest Troll"
This week we dive headlong into controversial comment with a man dubbed by The Daily Mail as "Britain's Vilest Troll". He uses twitter here: @Holbornlolz
The video we link to is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjJeQSfFhj8 - it's the start of a huge rabbit hole for any new listeners we may have picked up while the podcast was away... a rabbit hole you were likely down already if you've found this podcast.
There's a nice trailer for this podcast which comes up around 32 minutes in, I put out a teaser for it here on Twitter: https://twitter.com/NickMargerrison/status/1305559016786079744
Just writing this as I listen back, I'm really conflicted about it, I think that's a good thing. The guest is a perfect example, I don't agree with some of his sense of humor but there's real value in this conversation.
I've joked online that I'm trying to entirely re-invent the medium of podcast with this little thing we're doing here... one of the things I'm super keen on is that we nail interactivity.
I always dug stuff where there were nice hidden extras for people who put a bit of extra effort in. Writing a mini-essay here seems like a good example.
One human to another; what do you make of what's going on right now in the world? We're going to do some callers again soon, want to be one of them? Either record something and post it somewhere, I'll rip the audio and include some of it on the podcast with a link, or contact me and we'll try set up a quick skype call or something.
The cool thing about what we've got here is there's a bunch of people who have all fixed onto an algorithm of some kind. You, by virtue of the fact you're reading this, are part of that. Let's hear what we've all got to say... www.twitter.com/nickmargerrison
We're an interesting tribe. Hip to a lot of stories that are now mainstream news, fortified with a philosophy that challenges tyranny at its root with the word "maybe", interested in magic and the hidden nature of reality, open to new ideas yet keen to be able to criticise them.
Speaking of which, here's the link to the video where Chris Morris discusses the reality of faked terror attacks on Channel 4 news: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liV5wKAihh8
This is the Peterson video someone sent me, I don't think I watched it all but interesting point even so:
Finally, during the podcast hiatus I've been mucking about at open mic nights. That's what's happening at the end. Me and a buddy of mine are bashing out a song we wrote, recorded it on a mobile phone. It's called "Black Cat" and it's about the oncoming apocalypse. Neither of us are "true believers" in that sort of thing but right after we performed our first paid gig: COVID 19 and the global pandemic struck!
So, y'know, in magical (fictional) terms maybe we helped kick off the long promised "awakening" that New Agers go on about? If so, Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!
