The Nick Margerrison podcast

The fuller text of this essay is on the Disinfo.com website. You can find it by typing "The Global Awakening" into google, it's on the first page of that search at the moment. It got re-tweeted almost 100 times and got around 200 "likes" on it. It's my attempt at putting a positive spin on a meme that has been around for some time.

If people like it I might try and do another in a month or so, if not we'll just crack on with the archive.

Already got some very interesting people who are interested in being interviewed on this podcast as a stand alone piece. Won't happen until the new year.

It's early days cult members, I'm still learning this new form but I think I'm starting to get an idea of how cool it could be.

This week's offering to The Cult Of Nick features two interviews with Alan Moore. Both were recorded on the same day but intended to be broadcast seperately.

The first is about comic books and the occult, the second is about the reasons why Mr Moore hates film conversions of his work. If I'm being honest here the stuff where we get into occultism involves me feigning ignorance a little. I'd gotten into it by now and was already telling people I was a Discordian High Priest [1]. However, it seemed like a better idea to step back and let a real expert do the talking.

If this podcast is too long do message me about it on twitter: @nickmargerrison

Next week I'm going to do entirely original content, as an experiment. Regardless of if we lose half our audience or double it as a result it'll be back to the archive the week after as I've got lots of bits and bobs I wanna stick up here.

Thanks as always for downloading.

C u next Tuesday!

Nick Margerrison.

Two interviews with Kevin Warwick. He doesn't call himself a "transhumanist" but that's the term you need to google really. This podcast deals mainly with the notion that people are on the verge of being able to fuse themselves with kinetic technologies. Kevin is a really genuine bloke and I enjoyed meeting him in person for the TV show we did, "Esoteria". I discovered today that you can buy an audio version of it for £6 on iTunes. F. that, I'll copy you it for free if you really wanna watch it. No one's giving me any of that £6 I'll tell you that much.

Anyway, in this podcast I mention an article I wrote recently for www.disinfo.com which has gathered its own momentum since I recorded this. I'll focus on it a little more next week.

In the meantime I am find-able on www.twitter.com/nickmargerrison.

Hope you enjoy the podcast.
