    04. With the Beadles (ft. Andrü Mars)

    WILLIAM BEADLE; a family man, driven by God.
    The wonderful Andrü Mars joins me to discuss the life & times of a Revolutionary era patriot who believed that the Almighty was smiling down on him. We're talking about some seriously dark subject matter today, so hold onto your carving knives and listen to the true tale of the Beadles; a financial and spiritual tragedy which led to America's first recorded mass-murder-suicide.

    02: The Secret Doctrine

    02: The Secret Doctrine

    THE OCCULT! What is it? Is it a religion? A cult? An excuse to sacrifice babies and hex the weak? Could it maybe, just maybe, be an assortment of abstract methods of spiritual practice and self improvement? We ask Christopher Lee, Nat Friedland, and, of course, your host Mickey to help guide us through this maze of mysterious questions.

    Resources are too numerous to list, and this episode was written without direct reference to any book or reading but rather from personal experience.
