Gabriel D. Roberts and Aaron Cheak join us for a chat about the concepts behind "Gnosis" and "Alchemy". Both experts in their field it's worth looking at Gabriel's homepage here http://www.gabrieldroberts.com/ and Aaron's is here http://www.aaroncheak.com

 

Chris Rawlins is a memory expert. He sent me a copy of his book, I'm looking forward to reading it and will review it on the podcast in the future. His website is here: http://www.irememberthings.co.uk/

 

The Decadent Marsupials provide the music this week.

 

As I'm not using Twitter at the moment it'd be great if you helped push this podcast out into the farthest reaches of the universe. Pop it on your social media feeds and spread it like you would a contagious disease...

 

All Hail Discordia.

Rob Jackson the vegan, his web presence is here. He tolerated a lot of nonsense to get his message over back then. Interesting how some of my viewpoints have shifted and some stayed the same here. Good piece. This looks like him: http://fuckyeahveganlife.tumblr.com/post/37293420117

 

Manuel Kirklin, a witness to the President's incredible meeting with aliens. At this point I was in my full on true believer mode from the sounds of things. It was an interesting belief system at the time. Curiously close to outright Christianity.

 

Kristina Powell dives in for a bit of facial analysis. Quite an interesting piece.

All of these messages have been approved by The Discordian High Church, of which I'm the fifth Pope.

 

The Discordian International Council of Knowledge has requested that we make it clear that the answer to this episode's question, in accordance with both the law of fives and the apple of uncertainty, is a firm maybe.

 

Finally, a message from Eris D, transmitted from the very Sirius star. Discordia has insisted we make it clear that religion is a work of fiction. Names, Gods, places, and events are the product of the Goddesses imagination. Any resemblance to actual events, places, or deities are purely coincidental.

After recording this I was delighted to discover an article by Russell Brand advocating an end to debt, here: http://www.theguardian.com/culture/2014/oct/11/russell-brand-revolution-exclusive-extract?CMP=twt_gu

 

The podcast features an interview with Dr Pete Yendle, speaking about "White Poppies" and pacifism.

 

There's a rant about cannabis being legalised which features on my blog here: http://margerrisons.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/new-research-into-cannabis.html

The Aetherius Society is one of my favourite small scale religions. Mark Bennet is their representative. They are often described as one of the world's first UFO religions. Their website is here: http://www.aetherius.org

The YouTube video I refer to in the interview, and borrow a few clips from, is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GS4UEpzlAyM

Also worth a look is this excellent Jon Ronson piece from his old and incredibly underrated TV show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWjl5CDk2vs

As a side note I was delighted to discover the entire series has been posted up there, apparently by World Of Wonder, the production company that made it. In the unlikely event they read this, do another series! I'll present it if Mr Ronson's too expensive these days. Probably my favourite TV show ever.

We cover the sad death of a woman in the UK who posted on twitter under the name of @sweeptyface. A cache of her tweets was sent to me by a blog reader, it's here: http://greptweet.com/u/sweepyface/sweepyface.txt

Also, I've started doing a podcast with my mate Tom Binns. He's an award winning comedian who regularly features on the television. His live stand up act is phenomenal. If you like the sound of it and want to know more, go to his website: http://www.tombinns.com/

As it's a significant edition of the podcast, episode 123, the music was specially recorded this week by The Decedent Marsupials. They are the Discordian members of @QuislingMeet and @Mirrorkill

The session was a jolly time had by all, I even had a little go on the bongos at one point.

Neophyte: Hail Eris!

Initiates: All Hail Discordia!

We feature two great guests this week.

 

Piers Corbyn's website is here: http://www.weatheraction.com/

 

Richard Dolan features on the podcast, his website is here: http://www.richarddolanpress.com/

 

I continue my pagan mumblings, as this was recorded during my pagan week. That's over now. For those not following this thread I'm currently trying out new beliefs and this week I've realised the truth is in The Lord Jesus Christ, in a Gnostic context. It's much trickier to pull off monotheism. It's so antithetical to me. Or it was. Managed to say my prayers a bit last night. Do Gnostic Christians do that? My only real guide to their beliefs is a book by Philip K Dick.

 

Here's the famous Independent story about how there's going to be no more snow thanks to 'global warming'. http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/snowfalls-are-now-just-a-thing-of-the-past-724017.html

Scottie McClue, the man, the myth, the legend. Scottie's work was early inspiration for me. He seems explicitly Discordian, although this thought only occured as I began to write this little piece for the podcast.

 

Scottie's world record breaking tip top website is here

 

I wonder how his particular brand of broadcasting will be recieved by The CON's U.S. listeners? Comments and time will tell.

 

By the Gods, for I am a Pagan this week, the music is supplied by @QuislingMeet

 

And I tweet here: @nickmargerrison

 

And Scottie McClue continues his one man mission to educate the world on twitter, here: @ScottieMcClue
