Richard Flamer

Richard presented a fascinating and very personal account of his work in a Guatemalan town just across the border from his Catholic Worker Farm in Chiapas, Mexico. He is hoping to train some of the men from the town in carpentry, and thereby help them become self-sufficient. The town was the site of a military massacre in the 1980s and the residents are still suffering from the aftereffects.


Jim Fetzer

Jim talked about the recent appearance of Richard Gage, of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, on C-Span. While this would appear to be a victory for the truth movement, Jim feels it is a way of deflecting attention from the real truth by focusing on another impossible scenario, namely that thermite (which does not burn fast enough to be explosive) was responsible for bringing down the towers.


Winston Wu

Winston presented more evidence about the moon landing hoax, and directed listeners to a NASA documentary, “Failure is Not an Option”. where they should listen to certain statements by the Mission Control Director


Chuck Gregory and Mike Palecek

  • What’s happening on Mapleton Drive, Mayberry, Our Town?
  • The continuing adventures of Red White and Blue
  • The Adventures Of Matt Splatt, Big-Time American Bigfoot TV Researcher
  • Kill The Messenger, a new movie about journalist Gary Webb, coming in October, said to have committed suicide with two shots to the head with a .38 caliber pistol in 2004
  • The New American Dream Masterpiece Classic Playhouse Theater something-something, featuring the work of Bill Hicks
  • Mr. Rogers’ Midwestern Neo-Con Tea-Party Neighborhood
  • Fighting Father Jack Duffy, War Priest of West Omaha
  • Some notes from listeners … by email, chat room, cellphone, telepathy and telegraph
  • The News from Mount Liberty, continuing Charlie’s experiences after being dropped at the mental health hospital for “Observation”.
