ClandesTime 092 – Conspiracy Theories: The False Flag Exercise Hypothesis

Published November 20th 2016

9/11. The 7/7 London Bombings. The Boston Marathon. The Paris Massacre. This episode we take a look at the false flag exercise theory, which has become the default alternative media interpretation of these events. We examine the theory’s history in military deception techniques, its origins as a popular conspiracy theory and how it has been encouraged in state sponsored popular culture.

Spirit Cooking Election Day Special – Tom Secker on PPR

Published November 11th 2016

Pearse invited Aaron and myself onto his show on the evening of the Presidential election. I, for one, welcome our new Orange Overlord but when we taped this the result was not yet known. This conversation got a bit abstract as we didn’t discuss the candidates much at all, but instead had a good time looking into some of the weirder elements of the run-up to the election and the broader social trends around our current political dialogue.

Porkins Policy Radio – Now a Radio Show

Published July 20th 2016

My good friend Pearse has been given the opportunity to do his show on the radio so he invited me on as his guest for the very first episode. We took on an old favourite – Chase Brandon – and discussed his relevance to the world of state-sponsored entertainment before engaging in a multi-faceted conversation going into the reports from the Pentagon’s entertainment liaison offices, the expansion of the DOD’s role in the entertainment industry, the total lack of accountability. We also get into the question of why this matters, why government involvement in entertainment is important. We rounded off having a back and forth about the media coverage of the attempted coup in Turkey.

The CIA and Hollywood 13 – Race to Witch Mountain

Published July 14th 2016

James Evan Pilato is our latest guest as we dissect the 2009 Disney UFO adventure Race to Witch Mountain. We start off looking at Disney as a corporation – its long standing interest in UFOs and extraterrestrials, the connections to government agencies and their recent takeover of the fantasy genre. We then get into Race to Witch Mountain itself – a strange blend of a kids’ movie, a love letter to the UFO culture and an homage to spy thrillers especially Enemy of the State. Next, we examine the deliberately hyperreal nature of the film and dwell on the effects of a fantasy movie set in the real world with real people. A children’s movie about ‘illegal aliens’ being pursued under the Patriot Act is not Hollywood’s typical output.
