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.
Today we have a special Election Day episode of the show. We are joined by good friends Tom Secker and Aaron Franz from Transresister Radio and Themes and Memes to discuss all things presidential. We begin by discussing our general outlook and feelings on the election and the traumatic effects it has had on us. Later we discuss the occult overtones through out this election and voting in general. The three of us touch on the “Spirit Cooking” scandal surrounding John Podesta and how this is yet another example of the mainstreaming of alternative culture. We also break down the idea that this election has actually reinvigorated the public’s admiration for the office of the presidency. We also touch on the idea of the electorate being the archetypal “Willing Fool” in the magik ritual that is voting.
In the second hour Tom and I discuss the documentary film The Perfect Candidate which chronicled the failed senate race of Oliver North. The two of us also explore the recent rape scandal against Donald Trump which has now been dropped by accuser Katie Johnson. We also give our predictions for what lays in store for future presidential elections; including the possible run by Kayne West.
