Peer through the veil sh%$t particles
Intrigued by the awesome logo, I stumbled across this podcast which I love and am now addicted to.
Ray and Cam our beloved podfathers are back to give an inciteful and hard hitting show that delves into the propoganda that we are now waking up to globally.
Listen as they pull apart the matrix and expose the lies of governments and the press.
We have been lied to our whole lives, and this podcast creates a great framework for us all to apply when reading the fake news in this "post truth society" of the new millennium.
I highly recommend subscribing to the show and all their other podcasts as these two intelligent, nay, determined giants of the podcast world lean forward and give a reach-around to us all.
Listen, think, question and decide for yourself.
Ray and Cam have mastered the blend of humour, pop culture and rock music required of the "punk history" genre. This series, however, demands more gravitas than their other history shows due to the currency of its content. The hosts understand this and successfully walk the line to deliver something special. They perform deep research on complex, contemporary history and present the best version of the facts they can.
It is worthwhile noting that as this series covers recent world events contemporary politics are openly discussed. Regardless of what you believe you should embrace the challenge of nuanced and intelligent arguments. The hosts don't want you to accept everything they say nor cherry pick facts which reinforce your existing views. They want you to listen actively, to think, to question and to make up your own mind.
Hence, approach this with an open mind and you will get the most out of it: by learning about both the world and yourself.
I am always interested in the details and the unfiltered story. Unlike Jared Kushner I have no idea how to solve the Middle East conflicts. This series is helping to background the players and the plays to expose the facts. It seems overwhelmingly complex but greed, religion, racism, greed, oil, empire, greed and avarice are everywhere. Thank you guys for going carefully through the rubbish we are told by our leaders. Dave Ryland
