Episode #310: Assembly Theory


GoFundme we talk about in the beginning of the episode:


We recorded this shorter episode just before Christmas because Kyle has injured himself and wasn't able to sit for a normal episode.
We discuss Assembly Theory, a new way to look at natural selection and the formation of complex structures.
We also talk about the continued investigation of 9000 year old stone hunting structures beneath the waters of Lake Huron.


Thanks to Edfu for the awesome Christmas poem!

Episode #304: Airbursts and Cratering Impacts

In this episode, we read from the five papers recently published by the Comet Research Group in their new journal, about evidence for an airburst that destroyed Abu Hureyra ~12,800 years ago, and comparisons of impact proxies at Meteor Crater to materials found at known nuclear test sites.  There is also a paper about a possible impact or airburst much more recently, around 700BC, over Kansas, that was witnessed by the native american Pawnee.

We also discuss the new paper about Gunung Padang, a megalithic mound in Indonesia that has evidence it's earliest building phase may be as much as 24,000 years old.

Episode #302: Tales of the Little People - Part 4

Drew joins us for the final episode on his collection of tales about little people, fae folk, and pygmies, this time from the Americas. It is amazing to hear the striking similarities with stories from the other side of the world.

Episode #301: The 300th Episode

We discuss some recent scientific discoveries in detail, reading from articles and the source papers about ancient solar storms that caused a massive increase in Carbon 14 in the atmosphere, and fossil prints at White Sands that definitively breaks the "Clovis First" model of the peopling of the Americas.

In the final segment we discuss a bit about where our minds are at regarding all these mysteries, as well as future plans for exploration on the podcast and in the field.

Hard to believe we've published 300 2+ hour episodes! Thanks for sticking with us, there's more to come!

Episode #300: Akashic Records and Ancestral Magic

Our guest this week, Heather Shy, has degrees in business and finance, but her true calling is in spiritual and physical healing using meditation and hypnosis visualization techniques to access the "Akashic Records" and ancestral knowledge.  Heather is also an accomplished astrologer. We discuss the connections between these different techniques, and the philosophical implications of the existence this kind of access to information.

Episode #299: Tales of the Little People - Part 3

This week Drew takes us through the Arthur Conan Doyle saga with the fairies, and how he fell for hoaxed photographs....but we also read some of Doyle's writings on the subject of fae encounters, and they seem entirely rational.

We then spend some time reading and discussing the topic of Homo Floresiensis, also known as the "hobbits" of the island of Flores. There are tales of encounters with "little people" that persist on this island to this day, despite the fact that the fossil evidence of these "hobbit" people is at least 12,000 years old, and perhaps as old as 50,000 years.

We then move on to tales from Japan, with very similar themes, trickster beings that can be beneficial as long as the humans interacting with them abide by their word.

We will be performing at Howl at the Holler for the annular Eclipse on October the 14th, see the link for details:

The Lebanon extension for our upcoming Egypt trip in February has a pre-extension, see the link for details:

Marty Garza joins us again for the 12th part in his series on the strange history of UFOs, aliens, magic, demons, spirituality, consciousness, psychic abilities, dark government agencies, wars, and weapons development.
This time we dive deep into some strange connections in myth from ancient biblical and Hebrew texts, shamanism, contact with the spirit world, angels and demons, the Book of Enoch, and CIA projects researching psychic abilities.

As always, Marty brings the goods with his detailed approach. We hope you enjoy this latest installment in the UFO series.

Episode #294: Drilling for Ashes - with Dr. Joanne Ballard

We met Dr. Ballard at the Cosmic Summit, and decided we'd love to have her on the podcast to discuss her work. She is a Geologist and Biogeographist, and a member of the Comet Research Group. She became interested in the YDIH and started drilling lake cores looking for evidence of biomass burning.
She joins us this episode to discuss her background, her interest in the YDIH, and her related field and lab work, as well as some of her current interests and possible future projects.

We read a bunch of interesting and funny emails, and get into a long conversation about the "end of the world", and how we think about it. What are the ways the world could be destroyed? Do we think about the destruction of civilization, or a huge extinction level event? How do you survive? Do you want to survive?

Episode #291: The Spookiest Story Never Told - Part 2

The lines between UFOs, religion, magic, the paranormal, and government intelligence agencies have never been more blurry and difficult to define as they are in this installment of Marty Garza's series on the UFO subject.

Episode #289: Unfinished - Mysteries of the Megaliths

(The first half of the show is the presentation Russ will be delivering at the Cosmic Summit. It is heavy on the visuals, if you want to skip past it to the discussion, go to 1:20:30)


We've been condensing and refining this presentation in preparation for the Cosmic Summit, and we wanted to publish it here before it is given at the Summit. Some of you will have seen/heard some of this material before, as we went through it in a much less refined form in Episode 243. But this version is much more concise, and it has new observations as well as some helpful diagrams.

It definitely relies on the visuals, however, so be sure to watch the YouTube version!

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!

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.
