Guest Aaron Franz of theageoftransitions.com joins me for this episode to take a sideways look at the connections between transhumanism and the security state. We discuss a dog that looks like Vladimir Putin and the recent arrest of a stork in Egypt as part of a wider trend of animals being accused of spying as the ‘war on terror’ expands into increasingly ludicrous realms. We also talked about a CIA promotional video apparently aimed at children, Patrick Stewart’s visit to CIA headquarters, the subtext of Iron Man 3 and other superhero films and a curious story linking the movie Escape from New York to triple agent Ali Mohamed. We rounded off looking at automated checkouts and the implications for the economy. This wide-ranging and at times very funny conversation is not to be missed.
