What about the issues that arise simply from trying to live. What if our organs fail or get damaged, or what if we lose large sections of bone?

Do we even have any energy that can be considered clean? What is lithium mining? Why does it come up in this discussion. What does the word fossil fuel even mean?

Episode 43: The Psychology of Cults

April 4th, 2021|Conspiracy, Psychology|

In the late 1980's a former NFL defensive end stabbed 2 men with zero provocation, and if you ask him it was done at the urging of his leader to which he was devout. In the mid to late 2010's the hit show Smallville took on an entirely different meaning when the world realized a star actress was recruiting other women to be branded and exploited. In both cases we can't help but ask ourselves, how does this happen? How does a human being find themselves in a situation where these things happen? In a word, cults, but it's so much more than that. Join hosts Shanti and Danny as we dig into manipulation, fear, blackmail, and the disturbing minds of what passes for a "leader" in this world's cults.

March 28th, 2021|Technology, Uncategorized|

In the 80's a hero known as Al Gore produced one of the greatest inventions of all time..the internet. Ok well maybe that's just a comment quoted out of context that comedians at the time found hilarious and some of us still do. Today, though, Elon Musk is doing something with the internet early users like myself would never have thought possible. What is Starlink and what is the point? Join hosts Shanti and Danny as we discuss the introduction of Starlink, what makes it so impressive, and what it may mean for our future.
