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.

ClandesTime 101 Nightcrawler

From SpyCulture:

Nightcrawler is one of those rare films that is beautifully written, very well executed and is about something that actual matters. It tells the story of Lou Bloom, a young man in poverty-struck Los Angeles who gets into nightcrawling – filming violent crimes and accidents and selling the footage to TV news. In this episode Pearse and I conduct an extensive analysis and review of the film, exploring many different interpretations that often contradict each other. Is Lou a sociopath, or the product of economic circumstances and a media culture that turns violence into a fetish? Are his cohorts Rick (his assistant) and Nina (the director of the news channel) just as guilty and complicit in what happens? Is his rival nightcrawler Joe Loder actually worse than Lou? These and many more questions are explored in this epic discussion.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 49 Conspiracy of Misperception: Stephen Singular on the OJ Trial

Today we are joined once again by our friend Stephen Singular to dive deeper into the OJ Simpson case.  We begin by taking a closer look at Mark Fuhrman’s timeline in relation to his “discovery” of the infamous gloves.  Stephen discusses a key piece of the puzzle: Fuhrman’s multiple trips to OJ’s Rockingham property on the night of the murders.  We discuss how this was confirmed by Rosa Lopez’s testimony, but like so many key pieces of evidence, has been long forgotten.

Next we explore some revealing statements from Fuhrman such as his admission of seeing two gloves at the murder scene.  Stephen discusses how the case essentially ended when Mark Fuhrman “found” the gloves.  This stopped the LAPD from doing an actual investigation into what happened on June 12, 1994.

Next we move onto to the disappearing, reappearing blood evidence.  Stephen and I look at when the blood was actually discovered inside OJ’s Bronco.  We discuss how Fuhrman and others claim to have seen blood inside the Bronco, which prompted them to hop OJ’s fence without a warrant, and yet how several days later LAPD’s Kelly Muldorfer found that there was no blood inside the Bronco.

We again talk about Det. Vannatter carrying around not only OJ’s blood, but also that of Nicole and Ronald, for several hours. We also dive deeper into the question of how this all was orchestrated, focusing less on the possibility of a grand conspiracy and more on the possibility of several key people making a serious of devastating choices.

We round out the conversation by considering what the motive of this crime may truly have been.  Stephen outlines how a real investigation would have uncovered the deep connections this case had to organized crime and drug trafficking.  He also discusses how this case demonstrates the ease with which we can be manipulated as a society. And we touch on how this case set us up for many of the lies that we were later fed in the aftermath of events such as 9/11 and the Iraq War.  Stephen also dissects how the rise of TV news and opinion talking heads has turned us into a society that no longer cares about truth and reality.

Update From Stephen Singular: “Because of the wide interest in the O.J. Simpson case generated by the FX series on the murders, we’ve had numerous requests to publish Stephen’s 1996 Legacy of Deception: An Investigation of Mark Fuhrman and Racism in the LAPD as an e-book. We are currently re-formatting it for this purpose and it should be available for purchase through this website within the next few weeks. The updated version will contain new information about important developments that followed the original publication of the book. Please go to Books on this site for more information about Legacy of Deception.”

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 47 Legacy of Deception: Stephen Singular on the OJ Simpson murder trial

Today we are joined by writer and investigative journalist Stephen Singular for the first of several podcasts discussing the OJ Simpson trial.  In August of 1994 Stephen was contacted by a source within the LA legal system who gave him several important pieces of evidence pointing to O.J.’s innocence and demonstrating major police corruption and malfeasance. For a time Stephen even worked with the “Dream Team,”  leading them to look into blood tampering, ETDA presence in the blood, movement of evidence, and a close relationship between Nicole Brown Simpson and Detective Mark Fuhrman.

As a result of his previous work looking into Neo-Nazis and white supremacists, Stephen also uncovered Mark Furhman’s dark history as a violent racist psychopath.  We discuss the infamous Fuhrman tapes, as well as the LAPD’s internal investigation of Fuhrman, which confirmed what Singular had been told regarding Fuhrman’s Neo-Nazi ideology and his relationship with Nicole Brown Simpson.

Stephen presents us with a narrative of the OJ Simpson trial that we otherwise never get to hear. By honestly examining the evidence, it becomes clear that there is much more  to the “Trial of the Century”  than meets the eye.  We touch on why this trial is still important, and how its impact is still felt in America today. I strongly encourage everyone who thinks he or she knows this case to listen in with an open mind.
