Clayton, NC


Everyone is a philosopher and everyone has an interesting story to tell, you just have to know how to ask. I find that I am surrounded by some of the most interesting people in the world. They are our neighbors, friends, and relatives and they help shape who we are. Some conversations are serious, some are deep, and some are silly... Enjoy :)






WWI #73 Daniel Duerst, creator of YouTube Channel “Duerst the Wuerst”

Daniel Duerst is the creator of “Duerst the Wuerst” YouTube channel. He describes himself as “I am a center left, liberalish guy who goes around filming political protests, live bands, and other crazy, random, weird occurrences.” We live in a strange era where the average person with a cell phone can become a citizen journalist just by the act of live streaming political events. This is great in that we can watch events unfold in real time without the bias so often interjected by the big...

WWI #71 - Based in LA with Jeffrey Mark Klein and Tim Stabers

Based in LA is a media company focused on comedy, culture and politics. Their modis operandi is to counter the predominantly leftist culture of Hollywood and offer an alternate but equally valid view of politics, society and culture. Based in LA captures their audiences attention by embedding themselves within the often chaotic scenes of contemporary activism. We’ve seen the state of political discourse decay into violent stifling of opinion resulting in stark polarization of political...

WWI #65 Scott Santens - Writer and advocate for Basic Income for All

Universal Basic Income (UBI) is a somewhat controversial subject in a culture of capitalistic competition but if you’ve been paying attention to technology and the presence of automation, you should realize that human labor will soon be antiquated and jobs across the spectrum of trades will be lost. How will you provide for your family when artificial intelligent machines force you into retirement? If you don’t believe this is a reality, then you’ll need to get out from under that rock and...

WWI #57: Our near future is going to be really weird & I share embarrassing medical stories

I love waxing philosophical about what our lives will be like in the near (very near) future. “How near” you ask? Ray Kurzweil believes we’ll have microscopic robots in our brains in 13 years. Too far fetched? He’s got an 86% accuracy rate in predicting future technology and the number goes higher if you consider sometimes he is just a few years off. Topics discussed: Genetically modified babies; Robot love; Would art made by a computer still be art without the human emotion put into it?...

WWI #52: The 2017 Predictions Show

This show was originally meant to be live of FB and we ran into yet another snag. Stay tuned for future video episodes which will most likely be on demand via YouTube. This was a fun show! We made predicitions for 2017 in technology, science and celebrity deaths. Savanna royally screws up the advert at the start of the show (which I had to leave in) and Mike royally screws up a celebrity prediction - so, all in all it was probably the best show to date! Questions? Comments. Perogatives!...

Phil Sampson joins us to discuss how Neuro Linguistic Programming changed his life. What is NLP? There is much debate as to whether it represents a true scientific exploration of cognition or whether it is a...

This episode was recorded live from Mike and Maleah’s bar Revival 1869 with Savanna Steele and show regular John Taylor (twistedpodcast.com/truecrimewriting.com). The bar room is in the midst of reconstruction in downtown Clayton, NC. It was discovered that the building was once the home of an old funeral parlor and perhaps the site of a murder in the previous century. Ever the skeptic, I figured we could record live from the location in the hopes that we would receive messages from the...
