    Just thought I’d drop a line to say hello after starting to listen to the podcast (might take some time to get through all 60 but I didn’t notice your evolution from the old nervous teeth….)

    Glad to see your still giving your opinions on some of the weirdness we all put up with in this odd world. I haven’t been totally absent in the inter-webby but was maybe absorbing too much info so took time out from printing all my rants on ‘musesforthemasses’ it got a bit too intense at times (tune in and drop out springs to mind…..)

    Once I catch up through a few of the podcasts I’ll try and get back to republishing muses as I’ve one heck of an interesting two years away from mainstream brainwashing but have taken too using my scientific background to pick apart some of the ‘pseudoscience’ mainstream and disinfo as well as conspiracy to be a bit more rational in what we should understand. Fact is sometimes stranger than fiction but the best lies often contain enough grains of truth to make them believable in my experience when it comes to some of the more science related news topics I’ve been looking at.

    Good luck and best wishes folks.

    Chris. Awesome to hear from you, it’s been a while. I still occasionally look at the muses site, but no updates for a while.

    Anyway it’s great to be back in touch!

    Dear Alex,
    Just had to say something to you. Thank you. The thanks does not come from me but from a good friend going through hell right now. So I have been visiting your site for a while, and I enjoy your podcasts very much, its relieving to know someone else has similar thoughts to myself! I loved your podcast about the London Riots. I asked my friend to listen to that cast, he is not in England but in an Arab country (i dont wanna be too specific). I typed out ur podcast as he was unable to view online (so much restriction in that country with regards what you can and cannot read/hear/know about the outside). I hope you do not mind that I did that? Anyway, it really helped him somehow join the dots in his life and to understand about that bigger picture. Its small crumbs really in terms of helping him, but Im glad that I stumbled across your website and I share with ppl your thoughts, those willing to at least listen and try to see from another perspective. Keep up the writing and podcasts. Ive watched your Youtube vids… all great. So thanks again, you have impacted someone at a crucial time in their life, i thought you may be interested to know that!

    Take care,
    Louby Lou.

    Louby Lou – I’m humbled – ty very much.
    (PS – I really do need to do more work on my site… oh and I am absolutely fine with you typing out my cast)

    Hey Gareth,

    I very much enjoyed the 911 special and other shows with parts devoted to this issue. Because it is such an important (and increasingly unpopular) topic, i was curious if you or the rest of the team knew of and/or had an opinion on Dimitri Khazelov? Many opinions about that day fail to address where those towers physically “went”?

    Hi JO, I’ve had a mammoth radio hour session, there was a song that you listened too when you were running a marathon that got you going. I cant remember the song or band 🙂

    If you could help that would be great.


  9. March 9, 2013

    Rob thank you for listening! I do know of the song you are mentioning I believe. It is by a band called: Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker and the song is “Anti-Venom”. I remember it well, I was down and out when running a race… That song came on and just pushed me, it sticks with me. The power of music!

    Hi guys just thought I’d drop you all a line to say keep up the good work. Been listening for about a year now, mostly to The Mindset Podcast and Para Talk.

    Your podcasts have been helping me through an otherwise boring daily 17 mile drive to work so thanks to all of you 🙂

    Hi Reaves

    Your mention of the hum/buzz in edition 225 of Mindset really got my attention. I’ve been hearing it since 2012. I live just round the corner from Woolwich barracks and it started when building work began for the Olympics. It’s there every day and night and during the summer months can be really loud but not everybody can detect it, my wife thinks I’m hearing things and for a while I thought I had tinnitus but that’s been ruled out by people I know who have that condition. I wonder if other listeners are picking it up? You are the first person to describe it exactly as I would.

    Great podcast with great contributors
