TMR 189 : Frank, Crusy, Mark & Me : The Nephilim Boys on Planet X

Happy New Year from Niburu and the Mariana Trench!

"Hello everyone it's Uncle what are you been thinking some"—Uncle For this fortnight's programme we are privileged to be joined by the co-hosts of Uncle (the podcast)—"the number one uncle-themed podcast online today"—namely, Uncle John and his nephew-in-law Aaron Franz. Would it be accurate to call Uncle (the podcast) a comedy show? Close, but not quite right. Perhaps it's more a podcast "happening"? Possibly, but still not quite satisfactory. Or maybe all such attempts at categorisation...

TMR 177 : James Burke : A Life of Connections

In place of our scheduled interview (which unfortunately had to be abandoned), we take the opportunity to present an exclusive interview with the broadcaster, science historian and futurist James Burke. During the 1960s, '70s, '80s and '90s, James Burke was one of the most famous and most engaging presenters of science and technology programmes on British television. In 1969 he was one of the main presenters of the BBC's coverage of the Apollo 11 moon landings. A household name in the UK,...


TMR 176 : Dr. Kyle Greenwood : Scripture and Cosmology

We are joined by Dr. Kyle Greenwood, associate professor of Old Testament and Hebrew Language at Colorado Christian University, for a discussion on his thought-provoking yet controversial book Scripture and Cosmology : Reading the Bible Between the Ancient World and Modern Science.

What is "The Truth Movement"? And what are its aims? Indeed, is it even meaningful to speak of "the" Truth Movement at all? G. Edward Griffin is the Founder of Freedom Force International, and is listed in Who's Who in America. His...


TMR 174 : Frank Johnson : Ancient Aliens - Close Encounters of the Absurd Kind

Was God an astronaut? Is there evidence that ancient peoples were visited by technologically-advanced aliens? Or are such ideas the imaginings of "an over-caffeinated bumblebee"? This week we are joined by our good friend Frank Johnson of the Ancient Aliens Debunked blog for a casual and light-hearted chat on the subject of the History Channel's Ancient Aliens series. Long-term listeners will recognise Frank from his photograph here, and will recall that he has joined us twice before as...


TMR 173 : Dr. Robert J. Marks II : Evolutionary Informatics
