Dr Matthew Alford is a scholar whose thesis applied Ed Herman and Noam Chomsky’s Propaganda Model to the contemporary Hollywood film industry. He is now the author of many articles and books on Hollywood propaganda including his latest book “National Security Cinema: The Shocking New Evidence of Government Control in Hollywood”
Daniel starts off by asking Matthew how his interests started then the discussion moves on to who exactly is responsible and how deep the propaganda goes. Daniel asks Matthew about the past and if WW2 propaganda movies were a part of all this.
They go on to discuss how exactly the propaganda works and how it is meant to put the United States over as an ethical and moral superpower. Such films as Terminator, Transformers and many more are brought up as well as the program “Spooks” over in the UK. Daniel then asks about Steven Spielberg and Close Encounters.
Daniel comes back from the break locked and loaded as he discusses the Hurricane and Joel Osteen not helping. Daniel gives an update on his Reptilian challenge, takes a call from Todd, answers an angry pro-Alex Jones email then does the mind blowing moment of the day.
John L. Steadman is a scholar of both H. P. Lovecraft and western occultism and has been a magickal practitioner for over thirty years, working with various covens and small groups of initiates.
Daniel begins by asking John how he got into Magick and Lovecraft. We find out more about John then launch into a conversation about how much Lovecraft has influenced modern horror. Names such as Stephen King are brought up and comparisons are made between human centric creations and those that Lovecraft wrote about which defy human understanding.
Daniel asks John about the reality of Cthulhu. John goes on to explain that these entities are most likely related to our own consciousness but says it is entirely possible that they could be real external beings from a hidden dimension.
They finish things by discussing Johns personal paranormal experiences and how his magick system based around Lovecraft actually works.
Daniel comes back from break with some words of encouragement for the upstarts out there. He reads a fan letter and also comments on Alex Jones visiting his home city, making fake coffee assault videos and how Daniel would love to talk to him face to face.
Asbjörn Torvǫl is a Norse Vitki (Norse Sorcerer/Shaman) and loyal follower of the Asatru Faith. As well as this he is a magician of many traditions. He is a magickal scientist, taking from every tradition that has something to offer in the goal of refinement and ascent.
Daniel begins by asking Asbjorn about how he became interested in magick. We learn that he was brought up religious/spiritual and always had some magickal leaning as long as he can remember.
They then begin discussing Norse magick and what is unique about it. Asbjorn comments that really norse Magick is not that different than any other type of magick, it is the symbology which is actually different. Daniel asks about Loki, Odin, Thor, Freja and even the Giants and the Nine Worlds.
They then move on to discuss other Magick related topics such as Illuminati, Crowley, curses, love spells, summoning, Lucifer, Satanism and much more.
Daniel comes back from break and reads some fan mail. He talks about the KGB agent that has been in the news regarding JFK’s death and begins ranting about how most people actually believe in UFO’s/Conspiracy and he can easily pull up the stats to prove it. Daniel then makes a bold move as he challenges a member of the Reptilian species to meet him in unarmed combat with the fate of humanity at stake.
