Porkins Policy Radio episode 143 Brian Heiss on Marc Collins Rector, Chad Shackley, Brock Pierce and DEN

This week good friend of the show Brain Heiss joined me for an in-depth discussion on Digital Entertainment Network (DEN) and its founders, Marc Collins-Rector, Chad Shackley, and Brock Pierce. We talked about DEN’s meteoric rise in LA during the late 1990’s and its subsequent downfall after numerous allegations of sexual assault against young boys. Brian and I talked about Collins-Rector’s mysterious and unknown life prior to DEN. We attempted to piece together how Collins-Rector was able to sell DEN to the likes of Disney, NBC, Chase Capital Partners, David Geffen, and many other high profile people in less than a year. We discused Shackley, Pierce, and Collins-Rector fleeing the US after the first sexual assault lawsuit, and how they were eventually caught in Marbella, Spain. Brian and I also touched on Brock Pierce’s company IGE and the suicide of DEN victim Brian Claflin.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 72 Member South Park Season 20 with Emma Redmond

Today I am joined by my sister Emma to discuss and dissect season 20 of South Park. We begin by explaining what transpired this season: Mr. Garrison becoming President, Cartman falling love, gender wars, and the dangers of internet trolling. We begin by talking about the “Member Berries” and their devious plot to use the power of nostalgia to elect the Trump like Mr. Garrison. Emma and I discuss the power that nostalgia can have on ones psyche, and how we are constantly manipulated into following certain trends because of it. We then move onto the the issue of trolling which features prominently through out this whole season. We talk about Gerald’s trolling and explore the idea over whether it is in fact ok or funny to troll. Next we talk about the the gender wars that ensue through out South Park and the world at large. We talk about Butters transformation as a men’s rights activist and how this is mirroring society at large. Emma and I also touch on how Butters is schooled in all of this with the help of Bill Clinton.

In the second hour we break down South Park’s portrayal of Trump as Mr. Garrison. We talk about why Matt Stone and Trey Parker decided to use Garrison as a stand in for the president-elect, and if it worked as a statement and as a comic device. We round out the episode by discussing the genius of South Park as a show. We talk about how the series, and this season in particular, manages to show that the true enemy among us is society and ourselves. Emma and I also have a candid discussion on the dangers of horse porn.

The CIA and Hollywood episode 5 The Social Network

Thomas Sheridan joins us to talk about the 2010 film The Social Network, which tells the story of the origins of facebook.  We discuss the class struggle portrayed in the story, the mechanism by which the film could have been influenced by the CIA, the archetypes in the finely-produced melodrama that plays out, the CIA’s silicon valley network which is conspicuous by its absence from the narrative, and the meaning of the movie’s dark and brooding tone.  We also get into some unusual areas, including the mystery of the sub sandwich.
