This podcast contains an interview with Shirley Phelps-Roper from the Westboro Baptist church, less widely known then than she is nowadays the piece also features gay rights activist Peter Tachell.

Also there's an interview with a couple of people about a film called "Islam: What the west needs to know". It's one view on a very contentious subject.

Right at the end of this podcast is Part 5 of Essays For The Discordian Occultist. These essays will form the spinal collumn of my book but are, in early form, already published in full on
