    Avalon Lost - Crime in Science Fiction, Part 01

    Avalon Lost - Crime in Science Fiction, Part 01

    Listener, this is part one of a two-part series on the many crimes of science fiction authors. Let’s not sugar coat it. The sexual abuse of children committed by science fiction authors. We’re going to talk about the Science Fiction Writers of America. How I feel that they’re hypocrites. How the image the SFWA has cultivated doesn’t gel with the facts. Monstrous people that have been given the prestigious title of Grand Master and never denounced for their evil.

    Special thanks to Moira Greyland.

    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.

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

    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.

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.
