  • Craig Pittman - Oh, Florida! How America's Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country.

    18 MAY 2024 · Craig Pittman - Oh, Florida! How America's Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country. 4 days ago To some people, Florida is a paradise; to others, a punch line. As Oh, Florida! shows, it’s both of these and, more important, it’s a Petri dish, producing trends that end up influencing the rest of the country. Without Florida there would be no NASCAR, no Bettie Page pinups, no Glenn Beck radio rants, no USA Today, no “Stand Your Ground,” ...You get the idea. To outsiders, Florida seems baffling. It’s a state where the voters went for Barack Obama twice, yet elected a Tea Party candidate as governor. Florida is touted as a carefree paradise, yet it’s also known for its perils―alligators, sinkholes, pythons, hurricanes, and sharks, to name a few. It attracts 90 million visitors a year, some drawn by its impressive natural beauty, others bewitched by its manmade fantasies. Oh, Florida! explores those contradictions and shows how they fit together to make this the most interesting state. It is the first book to explore the reasons why Florida is so wild and weird―and why that’s okay. But there is far more to Florida than its sideshow freakiness. Oh, Florida! explains how Florida secretly, subtly influences all the other states in the Union, both for good and for ill.

  • Christine L. Kramer - inside RFK Jr.’s Chaotic White House Bid

    18 MAY 2024 · Christine L. Kramer - inside RFK Jr.’s Chaotic White House Bid 4 days ago How serious is RFK's presidential bid? From the chaos of the launch through botched announcements, clarifications and retractions, it would appear to an outsider as not very. If his bid is serious then there are concerns about his standpoints on issues and, judging by his campaign thus far, his competency. Could it be he is actually a device, used and opaquely funded by the right wing, to draw votes away from Biden, therefore solidifying Trumps' figures in the election? Christine Kramer is a investigative reporter who has been on the inside of RFK's campaign. And she has some tales to tell. RFK Jr.,is an American politician, environmental lawyer, anti-vaccine activist, and conspiracy theorist. He is the chairman and founder of Children's Health Defense, an anti-vaccine advocacy group that is a leading proponent of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation, and an independent candidate in the 2024 presidential election. A member of the Kennedy family, he is a son of U.S. attorney general and senator Robert F. Kennedy, and nephew of U.S. president John F. Kennedy and senator Ted Kennedy. Kennedy began his career as an assistant district attorney in New York City. In 1984 and 1986, he joined two nonprofits focused on environmental protection: Riverkeeper and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). His work at Riverkeeper set long-term environmental legal standards. At both organizations, he won legal battles against large corporate polluters. He became an adjunct professor of environmental law at Pace University School of Law in 1986. In 1987, he founded Pace's Environmental Litigation Clinic, where he held the post of supervising attorney and co-director until 2017. He founded the nonprofit environmental group Waterkeeper Alliance in 1999, serving as the president of its board.

  • Matt Sergiou - Bloomsbury Chronicles

    16 MAY 2024 · Matt Sergiou - Bloomsbury Chronicles Matt Sergiou joins Ed Opperman to talk about the Beatles, the Occult and 60's counter culture.

  • Matt Sergiou – The Beatles, The Stones, the 60’s and Mind Control

    16 MAY 2024 · Matt Sergiou – The Beatles, The Stones, the 60’s and Mind Control. Matt Sergiou has made a big effort to research not only the Beatles and their occult references and connections, but also the infiltration of the 60s counter culture and psychodelic influences. Were the Beatles and the Stones involved, albeit indirectly, in Decca Records funnelling money into military research? Were they coerced into giving an illusion that the peace movement could achieve it’s stated aims? How were the drugs which were responsible for one of the most creative and anarchic periods in music and art, so readily available to so many people? In a concise interview, Matt puts forward his case that much of the more successful music and acts were unwitting pawns in a game of distraction; at best they were innocent contributors for sinister operators, at worst they were willingly complicit in a mind control operation which altered the course of history.

  • Arielle Holmes - Mad Love in NYC - Star of Heaven Knows What

    16 MAY 2024 · Arielle Holmes - Mad Love in NYC Jul 3, 2023 Ten years ago, Arielle Holmes was working as a dominatrix named Siouxsie at a club called Pandora’s Box. After she finished her shift she’d sleep in a doorway or park bench, then, when morning dawned, supplement her income by panhandling on New York’s Upper West Side.. One day, she was stopped by a man as she went into the subway. He was researching a movie, he said, and asked her if she might want to be in it. “I figured: what do I have to lose? I looked him up. He made movies. So I thought, you know, maybe it’ll work, maybe it won’t.” As they became friends, Holmes opened up about being homeless, her drug habit, her destructive relationship with another addict, Ilya, and her troubled upbringing. The director – Josh Safdie, part of an acclaimed Manhattan collective – encouraged Holmes to write about her experiences. She did, and her candid recollections – soon to be published as a memoir, Mad Love in New York City - convinced him to abandon the project he was working on and instead shoot a movie based on her life-story. Starring her. It's a story of strength, life and survival through epically bad times.

  • Joan Renner : Deranged L.A. Crimes

    15 MAY 2024 · Agness “Aggie” Underwood never intended to become a reporter—all she really wanted was a pair of silk stockings. When her husband told her they couldn’t afford them, she threatened to get a job and buy them herself. Those silk stockings launched a career that started with Aggie at the switchboard of the Los Angeles Record newspaper in 1926, and ended more than four decades later when she retired as City Editor of the Los Angeles Herald Examiner. As a reporter for the Los Angeles Evening Herald and Express (later, Herald Examiner), Aggie not only reported on crimes throughout the city, but sometimes helped solve them. Using quick wit and intuition, Aggie helped her newspaper live up to its motto "The First with the Latest." Through the Los Angeles Herald Examiner’s photo archive, now held by the Los Angeles Public Library, the cases Aggie covered are more than just faded headlines, but come to life in light and shadow. This catalog of nearly 100 images, which compliments an exhibit at the Los Angeles Public Library's Central Library gives a brief overview of Agness Underwood and some of the cases she covered.

  • Christopher Brennan: Fall of the Arab Spring: From Revolution to Destruction

    15 MAY 2024 · From Libya and Egypt to Syria and Yemen, the MENA (Middle East North Africa) region is undergoing unprecedented tumult and chaos. We are now approaching the five year anniversary of the so-called “Arab Spring.” This pivotal event laid the groundwork for MENA’s unfolding collapse of nation-states. That the mainstream narrative of this wave of revolts has never been substantially challenged makes new trenchant exploration of this event indispensable. In a newly released book, Fall of the Arab Spring: From Revolution to Destruction, I propound a maverick thesis on this far-reaching Arab unrest. The book views this widespread Arab upheaval, not as authentic grass roots movements for democracy, but as an ambitious iteration of yet another US-engineered destabilization. Facing an incipient tendency toward multipolarity (multiple centers of world power) against US hegemony—while continuing the status quo of buttressing Israel—Washington manufactured the “Arab Spring.” Eschewing George W. Bush’s crude and bellicose approach, the Obama administration leaned on a synergy of soft and hard power: so-called smart power—all under the veil of lofty romantic platitudes of “democracy” and “human rights.” Christopher L. Brennan is an independent political analyst and activist based in New York City. He is the author of the newly released book Fall of the Arab Spring: From Revolution to Destruction. He has previously written articles under his pseudonym “Chris Macavel.”

  • Joanne Mjadzelics : Ian Watkins Convicted Child Rapist

    14 MAY 2024 · Joanne Mjadzelics : Ian Watkins Convicted Child Rapist Joanne Mjadzelics: For 4years Joanne tried everything to have a very dangerous manipulative paedophile and his accomplices brought to justice and taken away from children and society, but this man was a celebrity, a rockstar, and every report and complaint she made to numerous members of the police in different UK police forces was brushed under the carpet and Joanne was falsey labelled insane and other derogatory things by these corrupt members of the police and their bosses. When the evil paedophile was finally arrested, it was for drug offences, following a tip off that he was importing drugs from the US, it was only on this drugs raid that the police found child pornography evidence that Joanne had been screaming to them about for years. The monster was finally caught, and a year later he was sentenced to 29years in prison and a further 6years on licence, and two women who Joanne had also kept on telling police about who abused their own babies with him were sentenced to 14years and 17years... But the ordeal did not end there... The police kept on thanking Joanne, right until she spoke to the media and exposed their horrendous failings to protect very young children, then they were embarrassed and had to shut her up, they arrested and charged her over the same images that she had tried on numerous occasions to get the police to take from her and investigate, when the images were sent from Watkins to her phone, she went straight to the top and contacted the chiefs of police, begging for their help to catch this predator, telling them that she had to agree to disgusting things to get him to trust her so she could trap him. They used evidence that she had given them herself against her, they also used falsified evidence against her, transcripts that had been written by Watkins and purposely left on his computer with Joanne's name attached, when everything else had been wiped, he left incriminating "evidence" he had planted ready for the day he would be finally arrested. AOL head office were contacted by police to trace chat accounts that were also wrongly used against her, AOL confirmed none traced back to Joanne, but they all traced back to Watkins. Joanne had been traumatised for years, forced to keep going back to play a sickening role to try and get enough for police to finally act on her tearful pleas for help to stop him, yet in court they abused their power and turned everything she had done and sacrificed against her, they edited a sex tape so it looked as though she was instigating things and showed the edited version in court, this sex tape and what Watkins had her say in it was one of the reasons Joanne first reported the charming man she once loved to police, but they traumatised her even more by publicly showing the edited shocking sex tape in court, to Joanne it was like publicly shaming a rape victim, because she was a victim of Watkins too, she isn't a child but she was the only person to do something about him and sacrifice herself to do it. Joanne was rightly acquitted of all charges against her in court and spoke out very publicly about the malicious prosecution against her. She was digging up too much dirt, and fully believes that high ranking members of the police and society are involved in the paedophile circles Watkins was involved with...
