Out There Radio

I used to produce a radio show like this - The Naked City. I felt a bit out of place as a skeptic who believed in the moon landing, but it was a good show. Here are some past episodes.

I'm grabbing the ones I'm interested in. This'll keep me occupied for a while.

Of course all conspiracy theories are deliberate plants to keep us away from the REAL story.

Didn't we already do this on the blue today with that thread about the Tea Party Community site?

Naw, this is a lot different. I listened to the Occult Nazi episode about a week ago and was pleasantly surprised by how relaxed the hosts are. They sound more like a (stoned) book club than more insistent programs like Coast to Coast. I think a lot of folks have a healthy interest in weird shit w/o berating their friends and relations about the REAL STORY behind it all.

If you're into this you should also (or maybe, you already) know the voice of Dave Emory.

"Professional fear-monger Alex Jones recently went viral with a rant that has been universally derided as balls-out crazy, wherein he discusses his theory that the Power Elite/Illuminati/New World Order overlords are coming into communication with extra-dimensional beings through the inhalation of that most Reality-Shattering of molecules: DMT."

DMT? Lightweights.

Student radio is such a wonderfully deep and fertile soil that occasionally produces such wonders as this. Nice to see a show that started on UGA's WUOG continue on.

Wait -- Out There Radio! I know these guys, I linked to them, I think, back in the High Weirdness post, they had an interview with Rev. Stang. Considered FPPing them actually, but it slipped my mind. Fairly cool show!

Filed them between Mysterious Universe and Hardcore History on my podcast app.

Listening to their William Cooper episode now and it's interesting, but a bit credulous, taking everything Cooper said at face value so far and toeing the conspiracy party line that he was murdered/executed. Definitely not raving and spittle-flecked, which is a nice change for this kind of thing, but do they get more sophisticated?

Actually they do get a bit more critical of Cooper in the last third.

I've listened to about a dozen of their shows, and I generally like them. They are definitely credulous (which comes with being fairly young, I suppose), and I am vaguely bothered by how they let the antisemitic aspects of conspiracy theories just slip past them. "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion? Oh, that thing!" sort of take on it. It takes the joy out of it, you know?

Anyway, thanks for the find; just the thing for a snowy weekend.
