Did the Roswell crash provide the US Military with access to a live alien known as EBE #1 who lived for a few years after but before he passed he put us in touch with his home planet of Serpo & that resulted in an eventual meet & greet/exchange program in the early 60's & also probably influenced the whole "Close Encounters Of the 3rd Kind" thing?!?!  Listen to find out!

This week Nick Parks from heavy heartthrobs, GAYTHEIST, joins me to discuss magic.  Some left hand path, some right hand path...but we mainly focus on how an individual can get so wrapped up in their own journey that they lose sight of reality.  Adolfo De Jesus Constanzo was a magical serial killer that had ties to & high stakes in Mexican drug cartels.  It's an unreal & violent story that ends the only way it could end...

Science Fiction has helped the world advance in countless ways but it has also predicted, or perhaps ushered in, a lot of dystopian ideas of a bleak future.  Willy Dee & I discuss some of the technological advances that were inspired by science fiction & the darker side of sci-fi that seems to be coming true before our eyes.

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
