    The CIA - Secrets, Lies, and Torture [Part 02]

    The CIA - Secrets, Lies, and Torture [Part 02]

    Dr. Ewan Cameron’s embodied the title of a mad scientist in ways few ever could. When learning of his practices, Ewan Cameron exhibits an unmistakable sadism that seems to eclipse even that of Sidney Gottlieb. Throughout his experiments, Cameron delivered massive quantities of drugs to unwitting patients under the guise that he was curing them of ailments such as postpartum depression or anxiety. These patients would come to Dr. Cameron for help, entrusting him to deliver the best care possible, and instead, they were subjected to nothing short of torture.

    67: The CIA - Secrets, Lies, and Torture [Part 01]

    In 1953, a heinous crime was committed. At that time, it was new, potentially relevant information, when Harold Blauer’s doctor gave him a massive drug injection, killing him by way of an overdose. The news, however, didn’t report it until more than twenty years later. In this case news outlets reported on a story twenty years after the fact because the CIA had been covering it up.

    66: Ana Kriégel - A Different Tune, Part 02

    In the digital age, monitoring the online content that our children are accessing and consuming adds a further layer of complexity. Most parents do their best to educate their kids and maintain open communication about the pitfalls of the online world and how to deal with it. But kids are tech savvy, naturally curious, and often defiant. Prior to the advent of social media, some degree of comfort and protection existed for kids who were being bullied, by being able to walk outside the school gate or step off the bus at the end of the day. For those children and teens who had a stable and loving home life, this could offer some respite from the jeers, cruel practical jokes and public humiliation dished out by their peers.

    Nowadays, the rise of numerous social media platforms means there is no escape and no reprieve from bullying. It’s now as easy as the click of a button for bullies to launch and maintain relentless hate campaigns that make their targets feel unsafe in every aspect of their lives. Thankfully, many schools today have ‘zero tolerance’ anti-bullying policies. Encouraging regular conversations with our kids about inclusivity, respect and kindness also helps them to speak up early on when they recognize bullying behavior. But sometimes, even the best of intentions can’t prevent the unthinkable from happening.

Ridiculous monthly subscription charge

There actual factual, entertaining, enjoyable podcasts that are less than half of your monthly fee. $9.99???? Wondery is only $5 for Pete’s sake, for a good number of actual good pods. Sorry, but be warned, The pod is definitely not worth the money.

EDIT: They lowered the monthly fee to $7.99….. Still too high. But even they recognize it’s not worth that much. Instead of lowering the $$, raise the quality.

Slow down

The rapid and weirdly cadenced speech is very off-putting. You have to wonder what the glowing reviews are comparing him to? This is a hack job, nothing more—no way will I subscribe.
