    Antarctica...Wink Wink...Still Nothing to See Here!...Wink with Eric J. Hecker of Deciphering My Experience

    Antarctica...Wink Wink...Still Nothing to See Here!...Wink with Eric J. Hecker of Deciphering My Experience

    It's been almost a full year since Eric J. Hecker, plumber-to-mobsters-turned-Antarctica-contractor, first joined Greg to discuss his time at South Pole Station.

    Since then, he's discovered even more about himself.

    And not like the creepy journey of self-discovery perpetuated by Nicole Kidman's character on "Nine Perfect Strangers" or some weird Tony Robbins nonsense.

    We're talking his connection to UFOs, his involvement in the Project Stargate, Project Montauk and MK Ultra, and even more documented proof from the government supporting the sinister technology he accidentally peeped at in Antarctica....

    He's learned about himself, alright. And how much more critical his mission to spread the truth is than ever before.

    Passport to Utopia: Making Hyper-Speed Tube Transport and Teleportation a Reality with CEO, Inventor, and Visionary Yon Friedmann

    Today's guest, Yon Friedmann, has designed a fully self-reliant and self-sustaining indoor vertical farms network linked by a hyper-speed super tube transportation and teleportation system.

    He has the plans. He's figured out how to make it work across the globe. And he's presenting his ideas in Sri Lanki, as well as other nations throughout the world.

    In this episode, he tells you exactly how his ideas are going to come to life through collaboration, not competition.

    Imagine Elon Musk didn't have to act like a dick and cared about people.

    Welcome to today's episode.

    My XXXtraterrestrial Romance with Delphic Whoracle Emanuela Rose

    My XXXtraterrestrial Romance with Delphic Whoracle Emanuela Rose

    Emanuela Rose has something you probably don't.

    One might guess from this episode's title that we're referring to her hot, green alien boyfriend.

    Or perhaps we're referring to a steamy, intergalactic sex life that's bound to make all earth men jealous until the end of eternity.

    Nope, nope, nope. It's simpler than that.

    The thing she has that you might not: true love.

    Learn about how Emanuela met Emanuel, why "once you go alien, you'll forget earth men," as well as what an extraterrestrial OnlyFans account might look like.

    This episode isn't what you think. How could you? We never thought the sentences coming out of Emanuela's mouth would ever be a thing, either.

    Live long, prosper, use protection.

    Montauk Boy: Mind Control, Madness, and Monsters with Project Montauk Survivor Rocko Fowler

    Montauk Boy: Mind Control, Madness, and Monsters with Project Montauk Survivor Rocko Fowler

    WARNING: This episode is more serious than the one last week with the vibrating lightsaber sound effects....

    Rocko Fowler grew up in Montauk, Long Island, a place riddled with mystery.

    The biggest mystery: why do so many claim they were involved or knew about a military project since the 80s where children were studied to develop their psychic abilities, to project themselves into other dimensions, to submit to horrendous mind control experiments, and perhaps the weirdest of all... to TRAVEL THROUGH TIME?

    This is the real-life story Stranger Things is based on!

    In this episode, Rocko shares his own story. He claims that he's been a victim of this secret military project since he was a toddler. But unlike the Netflix series, his story is far, far darker than what you'd even imagine.

    If you're easily disturbed, do not listen to this episode.

    It's the testimony of a Project Montauk victim seeking justice.

    You must be brave enough to swallow the tale.

    Greg Meets New York City Legend and Vocal Cartoonist, Zero Boy

    Yup. This episode has no intro. No explanation. No context.

    This is a trip to the side-show.

    WARNING: FOR MATURE AUDIENCES

    Vibrating lightsabers, Wile E. Coyote, and the gaudiest sound effects you've ever heard.

    Ladies and gentlemen...boys and germs.

    Greg meets Vocal Cartoonist, NYC Entertainer, and Contemporary Vaudevillian... Zero Boy.

    Operation Mindf*ck: Qanon and the Art of Perceptual Psychology with Robert Guffey

    Operation Mindf*ck: Qanon and the Art of Perceptual Psychology with Robert Guffey

    Can "conspiracy theory" be considered a work of art?

    Robert Guffey, author, researcher, professor, and lecturer at California State University--Long Beach joins Greg to talk about how his early awe at underground conspiracy theory literature led him to becoming an expert in the field.

    More importantly, it gave him the knowledge to deconstruct the entire Qanon phenomenon as a psychological operation like none other.

    If you never understood Q before, this conversation will blow your mind.

    Robert joins Greg to discuss his upcoming latest book (already praised by Alan Moore AND Mitch Horowitz), "Operation Mindf*ck: Qanon and The Cult of Donald Trump."

    PS. If you're not comfortable with swear words, well, f$%#k.

Awesome

This is one of the best podcasts if you interested in seeing the “other side” of reality. You don’t necessarily have to believe it all, but the host brings in guests and let’s them speak and he always asks those burning questions that you want to know. He does it with an open mind and heart allowing the listener draw their own conclusions. I appreciate this platform, it’s so open and inviting and I love listening and always look forward to the next show! Great podcast!
