Porkins Policy Radio episode 123 Boxing Day Special with Tom Secker

For my Boxing Day Special I am joined by goof friend Tom Secker. We have a lengthy discussion about the year 2017, our ups and down’s, and some of our favorite and least favorite news stories of the year. We begin by discussing our favorite news stories of the year. Next Tom and I move onto what we felt was the most important news story of the year. We discuss why the War in Yemen and the defeat of ISIS constitute this title. Tom and I also discuss the significance of the #MeToo movement, and some of the problems we have with the way in which the media is covering it. We then move one the most over blown stories of the year, focusing mainly on Russiagate and Pizzagate. Next we talk about our favorite films and TV shows of the year. I of course picked anime for mine. Lastly we talk about our favorite Trump moments of 2017. We finish off by talking about the sort of year we have had and why Tom and I are quite proud of what we have accomplished.

This is a laid back if slightly zanier episode. So sit back, relax, and enjoy our Boxing Day end of the year special.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 122 The economy, Bitcoin, AI, and Christmas with JP Sottile and Aaron Franz

Friend of the show JP Sottile joins me in the first hour for an in-depth discussion about the recently passed tax reform bill in the House. We talk about what this reform package is promising and what the possible outcomes may actually be. JP discusses how this will ultimately benefit the richest of the rich in America, while most likely punishing the rest of the nation. We analysis the GOP’s strategy with pushing this wildly unpopular bill. JP and I discuss the idea that this may be part of a longer term strategy of ousting Trump from power. JP touches on Bannon’s attempts to tax the rich more and how this was rebuffed by the Republican establishment. Later we talk about how this may result in the GOP being out of power for some time. We then move onto a discussion of Bitcoin and how this has become the story that everyone is talking about. JP and I link this in with the tax reform bill and the financialization of the world economy. We talk about the idea of Bitcoin being a bubble and the logical result of our highly financialized world. JP and I also touch on the creepy transhumanist aspects of Bitcoin. We talk about the transhumanists behind Bitcoin, and how the embrace of it maybe a prelude to more transhumanists transitions. We end by briefly talking about Trump’s bizarre water drinking habits, and the rumor this is related to possible drug use.

I start off the second hour by talking about my show being reported in major news outlets including the Palm Beach Post and Daily Mail. I discuss how the mainstream media reported on my interview with F Lee Bailey and Pat McKenna, and some of the positives and negatives. Later good friend Aaron Franz joins us to discuss some of the strange occult aspects of Christmas. Aaron talks about the winter solstice’s connection to Jesus and the story of Christmas. Aaron and I also touches on the occult nature of buying a Christmas tree itself. We talk about strange ancient Greek castration practices under evergreen trees. We talk about the life and death ritual of buying a Christmas tree. We then move onto the most recent news stories about AI, focusing mostly on Sophia, Ben Goertzel, and SingularityNET. Aaron talks about Goertzel’s role within SingularityNET and his promotion of the BlockChain. We also talk about the strange rise in acceptance of sex robots and how this could be a pernicious development for society as a whole.
