Never before put out in this form the interview here with David Wilcock needed to be edited to cut it on the show, which was quite fast paced compared to this podcast. I love the idea that meditating and sending good vibes out would fix stuff. I really do.

The other interview is with Simon LeVay. Again, never aired in this form. I think they sound better longer but it is the nature of radio, you have to cut stuff because that way more people will listen. Narrows your message. With the internet you can speak in multiple formats and only irritate people who can easily ignore you. The conseqeunce of this is you end up projecting a multiple medium message. And stuff...

I'm in a waffling mood.

Hope you dig this podcast.

The Law of Projection is a source of amazement to the people who discover it. You're hearing it on a little culty podcast. I wonder if anyone's new to this one and will have the intended "wow" moment when they get into the idea? There's no way of knowing. I've spent the night watching coverage of the Million Mask March. What, what coverage? It was ignored by the media pretty much. Yeah, but it was on twitter and a video link. Doesn't matter if they ignore us now. The mainstream media only ignores such things at the risk of being ignored.

I kind of feel like this podcast should have more of the revolutionary stuff in it but it doesn't. Check out this podcast's timeline if you're looking for that. I notice a few of my pieces were being shared last night as I watched people fan out over London, with their Guy Fawkes masks on. Cult members are realising how well placed they are to handle these debates from the look of my twitter feed at the moment.

Looks like I'm going to be adding a donate button to the podcast. I put a hundred quid in there for hosting costs at the start of all this thinking it'd last me ages, it has, more than a year! I reckon if half the audience pops a quid in we're cool for another year or more, happy days.

This podcast is recorded in a slightly odd way, my spoken bits were done in total ignorance of the interview I was going to pick from the archives. Listening to it I think we picked a good match, Michael Roll from The Campaign For Philosophical Freedom. If enough people agree I might contact him and see how the search for a psychic went.

Short piece with David Icke, a bigger piece with Bruce Gernon and some words from me.

I mention an idea which I'm currently trying to digest in this podcast, I'd hugely appreciate thoughts on it from fellow CON members. It's "the oversoul" idea. The god mind, the secret doctrine, this notion that there's a form of biological internet that envelopes the earth and provides ideas to people. I don't see why people believe in it, at all. If you do try and explain why in a comment on this blog

This interview is from the Kerrang archives. It caused a huge controversey at the time because it was offensive to people who claimed to be party of Anonymous group.

I’ve kept an eye on the developments taking place in the world of the ‘virtual currency’ Bitcoin. “Buttons” is a guy who traded on forums but he has now had to cease this after his account was closed and his bank became inexplicably uncooperative.

Also, on this podcast, I explain the album which a friend and I have made. It can be found here:

I’m on one of the tracks, “The Awakening”.

This is one of the many Icke interviews in my archive, it was initially going to be my firs upload but then I realised you kind of need the background to his belief system for it to really make sense. Hence it's my third upload of an Icke piece rather than the first.

Rodney Orpheus is a great guest. In my opinion the guy has his pitch just right. A rock and roll star by day and a master occultist by night. What more could you want?

This interview is unique to the podcast and was conducted last week.

I've interviewed him previously, as becomes clear, but I think this is the first time I really manage to tie him down to some of the specifics of what it is The OTO is about. The book he's written is excellent, The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley, but I suggest if you're new to this stuff you start with his first book: Abrahadabra.

Originally I was kicking an old interview of his around then it occured to me that as we're still in reasonably regular contact it'd be odd for me not to buzz him on the phone and set up a little chat.

A belief system is sometimes tricky to spot in the cut and thrust of your average cult member's life. There's nothing wrong with beliefs it's just important to remember how alike to fantasy they are.

Without doubt Stewart Lee cut a heroic figure in my life for a certain period. He was obviously brilliant yet had been totally abandoned by the mainstream for no clear reason. It fascinated me that someone who was so obviously a genius in his field was playing small rooms and doing wilfully odd things at gigs.

This interview was done just before he hit the bigtime for a second time. It's an interesting little period piece in that sense. However, it's very much a fan interview so I suggest you go watch some of his stuff on YouTube first.

This interview with "Prophet Yaweh" is marked with an "explicit" rating. It's potentially VERY offensive. The point of it is to suggest that you can and do create your own reality by projecting your intent outwards. If your intent is to call down a UFO or ET or Demon, you'd be surprised at the apparent results. I don't suggest you call one, I do think the 50p experiment in the previous podcast might be a better idea.

Recently David Icke was "confronted" by Jessie Ventura on his TV show. The two men left each other with a bitter taste in their mouths and it makes for irritating viewing. This is the conversation Ventura could have had with Icke about The Lizards if he'd been genuinely interested.

I've mentioned previously that opponents of "The New World Order" are frequently mystically inspired. Icke is no different to Alex Jones in this respect.

The implications of Rupert Sheldrake's work for occultists are obvious. The implications his ideas might have on science in the long term are huge. That he's not currently accepted as the orthodoxy is an irrelevance. The older you get the more you notice that science shifts in its opinions just as people do. This is partly why I drop in my little essay at the end. Paradigms and ways of thinking are not written onto stone tablets anymore.

If you enjoy the end bit of the podcast you might like an earlier episode called "The Awakening". Have a little look back, it comes just after the Alan Moore interview.

This week's podcast features a full unedited inteview from the archives with Glen Carter, the UK President of The Raelian movement. It begins with a quick rundown of my top five small scale religious movements, or "cults".

For me the distinction between a cult and a religion is nothing more than a numbers game. Furthermore I think there's a sense of perspective you can get on religion by looking at the activities of smaller groups who have a much harder time maintaining their reality tunnels in the face of a society which is, in the main, indifferent to their existence.

On this week's podcast we have four pieces all in one. Firstly there's an interview with, The Head Of The Church Of Satan, Peter H Gilmore*. Secondly there's a chat with one of my favourite living poets Will Stopha. Then there's, Edward Muesch, a guy who survived a tsunami. And finally there's the secret to stopping smoking. Seriously, it worked for me, you read a book and then you will stop. It doesn't scare you, it just convinces you to stop. Listen to the end of the podcast to hear more.

Happy New Year &c

*In the event I find the un-edited version of this I'll whack it up straight away. Little annoying that this has a few early edits on it.
