    Premium Episode 34 - the Bavarian Illuminati part 1: “What Does the Illuminati Have to Offer Me?”, feat. Monty

    [originally published on Patreon Jul 3, 2022]



    Today I'm joined by my secret society guy, Monty, to discuss the historical Bavarian Illuminati. Monty takes us through the state of Europe at the time, and we talk about the Jesuits and the Catholic church, the Enlightenment, the Rosicrucians, and so forth. Monty introduces all the main figures of the story - Weishaupt, Knigge, Franck, the goals and structure of the Illuminati, the development of the secret society, and various famous historical figures. Monty walks us through the repression of the society, and that's the end of the story - nothing interesting happens after that.

    Today I'm joined by Alex Tsakiris (@skeptiko) of Skeptiko for a wide-ranging discussion on a number of topics of mutual interest, including running a podcast and getting to talk to people, science, consciousness, MKULTRA, gifted kids, Whitley Strieber, Epstein, transhumanism, Mirage Men, and so forth. It was very fun.

    Today I'm joined by Matt Farwell (@huntclancy) of the Hunt for Tom Clancy blog to discuss the 1984 film Dreamscape. Dreamscape, as it turns out, is a very weird film, and Farwell and I use it to discuss a wide range of weird things.

    Today I'm joined by by Dr. Pig Bodine aka CJ (@Pussy___Teeth) of the MindGamez podcast to discuss Alan Moore's Lovecraft cycle yet again, having been cut off by technical difficulties. We get more specific about various subplots in Providence and spend more time discussing Lovecraft, Kenneth Grant, class war, why the Irish are the only decent people in Moore's works, and so forth.

    Today I'm joined by by Dr. Pig Bodine aka CJ (@Pussy___Teeth) of the MindGamez podcast to discuss Alan Moore's Lovecraft cycle. We discuss the Courtyard, Neonomicon, and the general outline of Providence. We continue to discuss Lovecraft, Moore's stance on Lovecraft, Moore's stance on magic, the nature of Elder Gods, Kenneth Grant, and a wide number of other things. We got technical difficulties at the end so there's another episode to follow this one up.

    [originally published on Patreon May 10, 2022; now you should check out Tanner's blog, Getting Spooked]



    Today I'm joined by a very special guest, Fortean expert Tanner Boyle (@TannerFBoyle1) to discuss some early high strangeness, and particularly a lot of the incredibly underdiscussed parapolitical angles to said phenomenon. We discuss the weird figures around the Mothman thing, the factories around Point Pleasant, the backgrounds of people like John Keel, Woodrow Derenberger, and Indrid Cold, and the Lanulos abduction story.



    We talk Bosco Nedelcovic, Union Carbide, COINTELPRO, men in black, the Hopkinsville goblins, the Flatwoods Monster, the recurring theme of weird connections between cryptozoology and espionage, and the alien abduction concept. We discuss certain salient aspects of the Betty and Barney Hill abduction, and the truly insane stories of several hypnosis experts.  At the end, we contemplate what's left of these stories and their possible utility as psychological operations.
