    Elias Davidsson on missing and counterfeit 9/11 evidence

    Elias Davidsson on missing and counterfeit 9/11 evidence

    An interview with Elias Davidsson about the way that the US government has not provided evidence that the named 9/11 hijackers were on the ill-fated airplanes. We also talked about the unusual Shanksville crash site and the suggestive evidence that two of the airplanes were flying past their alleged crash times. More broadly, Elias talked about international criminal and human rights law and 9/11's strategic context.
    Davidsson is the author of Hijacking America's Mind on 9/11. He has also written, among others, forensic accounts of the 2008 Mumbai attack (The Betrayal of India) and, in German, of the 2016 Berlin Christmas market attack (Der gelbe Bus). He has published articles on international law, human rights law and international criminal law in peer-reviewed legal journals.

    The CIA's Files on Ireland

    The CIA's Files on Ireland

    What the CIA is, as reflected in its declassified files on a small rainy island: Ireland. The Agency's analyses of the the first Brexit referendum in the '70s, with echoes of today and of the Irish failure to join NATO, and a hint of an operation during the IRA campaign of violence, all come up, as well as other topics.

    Introducing Owen Barfield

    Introducing Owen Barfield

    Owen Barfield was a scholar of what he called the evolution of consciousness, the idea that humanity's modes of perception of reality, of thinking. and of relating to nature have evolved in the time of recorded history. He was also famously a friend of C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. I talked with Mark Vernon, who has written a book about Barfield, about how Barfield's ideas shed light on Christianity, the history of words, the imagination, and what a rainbow is, among other things.

    The Ayahuasca Brouhaha

    The Ayahuasca Brouhaha

    A weekend of smashing the system. The head-system. I talk about what ayahuasca is, the legal and medical situation, and so on, for the first 15 minutes, and then it's trip talk, but considered trip talk. As I admit, I am an enthusiast for this psychedelic / entheogen / ecodelic / substance / mind-stuff. I come clean that I don’t think one is experiencing a simple hallucination, but that something is superintending the trip; while leaving open the possibility I’m wrong about that.
