Episode #286: Mysteries of Turkey - Part 3 - with UnchartedX

We went live on YouTube to discuss our recent trip to Turkey with Ben from UnchartedX. We talk about Gobekli Tepe and the popular narrative that has been built around the site, and the newer scientific information that is being published that changes what archaeologists think about the site. We also discuss Karahan Tepe,  Sogmatar, Nemrut Dagi, and the general area of Turkey around the city of Sanliurfa.

Episode #285: Mysteries of the Maya

We are joined by John from Living Dreams Mexico to talk about the Maya, their long history, and the development of their culture and building styles. John runs a tour company in Mexico and is very familiar with many of the Mayan sites, and he gives us a lesson in the basic Mayan history and the associated architectural styles. We also discuss a bit about Mayan theology, astronomy, and the connection with the Olmecs.

After the interview with John, we give an Ag update and tackle some emails.

Episode #283: Gobekli Tepe and the Mysteries of Turkey

We are back in the cube from our trip to Turkey, discussing the culture of the country, the beautiful city of Sanliurfa, and the many amazing ancient sites we visited.

After an overview of the trip itself and some brief discussion of other sites like Karahan Tepe, Harran, and Sogmatar, we get into some details about Gobekli Tepe that we observed, as well as some of what we learned from reading the scientific literature associated with the site.

As always, there is more to come. Enjoy!

Episode #282: More Listener Communications

We're about to leave for Turkey and we have so many great emails from listeners to catch up on before we go, we decided to tackle some of them in a live-to-youtube broadcast. Once again this was a lot of fun, thanks to everyone in the chat and all the superchat donations.

This will be the last of the regular episodes until we get back from Turkey. Meanwhile, check our youtube channel for livestreams, the discord for pics, vids and boots-on-the-ground updates, and maybe even the RSS feed for audio uploads, if we can manage it.

Also, as was mentioned during the show, Russ/Brothers of the Serpent now has an "affiliate link" for purchasing a livestream ticket for the Cosmic Summit event. Use the link below to get a ticket and also support us!  Thanks!

Episode #281: Origins of Civilization

With our trip to Turkey coming soon, we sit down to record this episode with Gobekli Tepe on our minds, and this leads to a discussion about the origins of civilization. What came first, the temple, or civilization? How do hunter gatherer people become farmers and ranchers?

Obviously, we don't have the answers. But we work through our thoughts in this episode, and it will be interesting to see how much we learn, and how that will change what we think now, after we see Gobekli Tepe for ourselves.

Episode #279: Written in Stone

Ben from UnchartedX joins us to discuss the amazing high quality scan data of a pre-dynastic Egyptian stone vase. Ben has discussed this object, the data from the scan, and the implications of the staggering precision evident in the manufacturing process several times on his channel.

Since the STL file of the data has been made available for download on the UnchartedX website, many people from around the world have been performing their own analysis of the vase, and we discuss some of the results of that on this episode, as well as some interesting results that Kyle has discovered on his own in his attempt to better understand the initial analysis techniques used by professional metrologists Alex Dunn and Nick Sierra.

There is a lot of visual data being referenced on this episode, so be sure to check out the YouTube version(it should be out within a few days of the publishing of this audio).

Episode #278: UFO Swapcast - Marty Garza & Grimerica

Another UFO conversation, this time with Darren and Graham from Grimerica joining us in a swapcast, and of course Marty Garza as a guest, making it more of a round table discussion.

We talk UFOs, coverups, government and academic involvement in the subject, physics, secret projects, and more. A lot of the conversation was in regard to the JRE episode #1945 with Eric Weinstein as well, if you're interested in the UFO topic and haven't listened to that episode yet, go listen to it!


The second half of the conversation with Grimerica and Marty will be available on our Patreon feed, or on the Grimerica Outlawed feed.

Episode #277: UAP Report - UFOs, Balloons, Conspiracy

Despite being out of town on vacation, Marty Garza joins us remotely for the first half of the show to discuss the current events regarding the objects that have been sighted and shot down over the Americas. We discuss possibilities, ideas, speculation, and conspiracies surrounding these objects.
Marty also talks about a sighting he had while driving on a remote desert highway on his way to his Vegas vacation. He stopped his vehicle and managed to get some video with his phone, which is included in the video version of this episode.

Episode #276: The Path of the Pole - Part 11

The final part of this (long) book report series. We finish up Hapgood's thoughts on evolution and how the idea of repeating crustal displacements might fill some gaps in the understanding of the process, then move on to the final chapter for Hapgood's conclusion, and suggestions for future research.
We also read from some of the many notes and addendums following the main body of the book, including some correspondence and meetings with Einstein, work on the physics of the axial stability of a rotating sphere, and more.  There is a lot of great information in this section of the book, much of which we did not discuss. We really do recommend you all get a copy so you can read it for yourselves.

Episode #275: The Path of the Pole - Part 10

We continue exploring the fascinating information in Charles Hapgood's book, Path of the Pole, starting this week with a detailed look at pleistocene deposits in South America that contain enormous amounts of megafauna and, sometimes, human remains. In caves, valleys, and massive mud deposits, these fossil remains speak of a geologically recent catastrophic event.

We then move on to Hapgood's discussion on the subject of evolution, and how his crustal displacement theory may help to fill in gaps in the explanatory power of natural selection and mutation.

Episode #274: UFOs and the Paranormal

We are joined on this episode by Marty Garza, guest and researcher from the UFO series, and Seriah Azkath, host of the excellent podcast Where Did the Road Go, for a full length roundtable discussion on the topic of UFOs.  We start with the current state of things in the UFO/UAP subject, then the conversation morphs into a much more broad discussion on the nature of the phenomena itself.

Episode #273: The Path of the Pole - Part 9

We continue our in-depth reading and discussion on Charles Hapgood's Path of the Pole, finishing up the section on megafauna extinctions in North America at the end of the last ice age, and moving into evidence for massive geological upheaval in South America in the recent past. Hapgood talks about the Altiplano area of Peru and Bolivia, Lake Titicaca, and Tiahuanaco, all of which show signs of being involved in an enormous geological uplift that brought the lake from contact with the ocean to its present location far above sea level.

Episode #272: Ice Age Bones with George Howard

George Howard joins us to discuss his knowledge of the Alaskan Pleistocene bonebeds we were reading about in Path of the Pole. George has a lot of interesting information about these deposits, including a Comet Research Group study on cosmic material recovered from sediments embedded in the bones themselves.

We also discuss a similar massive bonebed right here in Texas that George has known about for many years.  For various reasons, these bonebeds haven't really been properly studied, but maybe that will change in the near future...

Episode #271: The Path of the Pole - Part 8

Back to the book report! We had a great time in Egypt, and there are more Egypt episodes coming, but meanwhile we still have to complete Charles Hapgood's Path of the Pole.

This week we complete the section on mountain building, continental drift, and crustal composition, and move into chapter ten, which is about the extinction of the Pleistocene megafauna.
