Episode #202: The Hidden History of the Human Race - Part 8

Back to our deep dive into The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson for part eight! We continue on from where we were in part seven, looking at the "Java man" discovery of what would later be come known as Homo Erectus, by Eugene Dubois, and the problems and arguments surrounding those finds at the time.
We read about another paleoanthropologist, von Koenigswald, returning to the same site in Java to look for further evidence of this "missing link", and the problems with his methods. There is also an interesting event in which a Jesuit priest, who had been involved in the discovery of Beijing Man and the Piltdown fossils, arrives and helps von Koenigswald get connected with the Carnegie Institute for funding of his work.

Episode #201: The 200th Episode

This episode is a celebration of 200 episodes of the Brothers of the Serpent podcast. (If you're wondering why we did this on episode 201 instead of 200, it's because the podcast starts with episode 002!)

Using an extensive list of clips from older episodes, all marked and prepared by listeners, we look back at how the podcast has grown and changed, and mostly at how many dumb jokes we've made.

We're joined in studio by Marty, from the UFO episodes, as a representative of the Discord SnakeForce, and they spring a huge surprise on us during the break after the first segment.

It was amazing.

Thanks so much to all of the Snakeforce in the discord for all the support and the huge list of clip suggestions. Thanks to LP for putting all those suggestions together in a spreadsheet. Thanks to Janus for taking our picks and actually extracting all the clips for us. And thanks to everyone who participated in the super-secret channel to put together the amazing super secret secret!!

Hope you all enjoy this, and don't miss out on the special end-of-show mix! See you in the next 200 episodes!

Episode #200: Trinity, UFOs, and Listener Communications

We take a break from the book report to talk about the ongoing UFO conversation happening in the mainstream right now. Russ gives a synopsis of Jacques Vallee's new book, TRINITY: The Best-Kept Secret, that he co-authored with Paola Harris, about a possible crash in the New Mexico desert several years before the infamous Roswell incident.

We also discuss Vallee's previous works, which Russ has been re-reading, and how utterly strange this phenomena is, and how the current "disclosure", whatever it may end up disclosing, cannot possibly approach the true strangeness, or breadth and scope, of the "UFO" phenomena.

In the final segment we read some Listener Communications.
