episode Nate Wilcox: Realpolitik artwork
Nate Wilcox: Realpolitik
Nate Wilcox [https://substack.com/@natewilcox?utm_source=about-page] has many opinions and he is not afraid to use them all. Nate joins the Plutopia podcast this time as we discuss politics, politicians, and other dangerous predators. Nate is a former political consultant turned MMA blogger (noting the similarity of politics to mixed martial arts). He’s publisher of “The MMA Draw Newsletter” [https://substack.com/@natewilcox?utm_source=about-page] and “Let It Roll” podcast (the latter is currently on hiatus). Nate joins the Plutopia podcast to discuss various political topics, highlighting how Trump’s unexpected rise to presidency was initially a strategy to gain leverage in reality TV negotiations. Wilcox provides an in-depth analysis of American politics, criticizing both major parties and their handling of power, policy, and military strategy. He draws parallels between contemporary political figures and historical events, questioning the effectiveness and motivations behind current leadership. The conversation covers Biden’s cognitive state, the influence of corporate interests, and the long-term implications of foreign policy decisions, painting a picture of a deeply flawed and corrupt political system. * * * Nate Wilcox (on Trump): > If you look at the details of how he got into this situation, it’s Shakespearean! I mean, basically the guy wanted to show the producers at NBC that, hey, assholes, you should be paying me more money to star on whatever reality show it was because look at how good my polling numbers are gonna be. And he never thought he would win. He didn’t even really intend to get the nomination. And there are accurate accounts of election night 2016 where he’s just as shocked and horrified as anybody else that he’s getting elected. And now he’s in this position where if he doesn’t run for office, he goes to prison. So his interests are pretty easy to see through. I mean, the guy wants to eat cheeseburgers, talk about himself, and not go to prison and get money out of people.

episode Ian Forrester: Media R&D artwork
Ian Forrester: Media R&D
Ian Forrester, [https://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/people/ianforrester] a member of the BBC’s R&D Advisory Team, [https://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/projects/advisory] focuses on open innovation and disruptive opportunities, working with startups and early adopters. With a history at the BBC World Service, Ian’s role evolved from traditional news development to anticipating future broadcasting and Internet challenges. His team addresses core issues relevant to public service broadcasters, emphasizing the importance of forward-thinking and exploring new technologies. Known in the digital scene, Ian’s innovative approach and his involvement in projects like BBC’s Micro and Webwise initiatives highlight his commitment to public education and digital advancement. > I spent a lot of time, well, I first started the BBC in the World Service, which is a news outlet side of the BBC. And it was always a cycle where you go into work, you work on stuff, and I was in the development team. But when it came to four o’clock, there was a massive rush, getting the stories out, getting them out to the right places, is it done, is the editor happy, all that stuff. And I have worked at newspapers as well, so I know that cycle. You don’t have time to sit there and think about, what does this mean in like two, three, four, five years time? That’s what R&D, so that’s what R&D department does. And the advisory team focuses on some of the kind of core issues that are relevant to the future of broadcasting, the future of the BBC and the future of all public entities when it comes to the internet.

episode Stanton Friedman on UFOs artwork
Stanton Friedman on UFOs
In this episode of the Plutopia Podcast, the hosts revisit an interview with the late Stanton Friedman, [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanton_T._Friedman] a prominent nuclear physicist and UFO investigator who lectured extensively on his research into UFOs. Friedman argued that governments conceal information about UFOs to maintain nationalistic divisions and prevent public unification as earthlings. He emphasized the significant evidence supporting UFO reality, including his own investigations and the Project Blue Book Special Report 14, which documented numerous unexplained sightings. Despite skepticism and ridicule, Friedman’s work contributed to a broader acceptance of UFO phenomena and highlighted the inadequacies of official investigations.

They also touch on the upcoming debates between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, speculating on Trump’s debate tactics. The conversation highlights Plutopia’s commitment to freewheeling discussions, even if they occasionally veer off into humorous, speculative, or strange territory. The episode provides a blend of current events, personal anecdotes, and societal commentary, reflecting the eclectic nature of our podcast. > Jon: Biden and Trump are going to have a couple of debates, or Trump is going to have a couple of debates, whether he will let Biden get a word in edgewise is another question. > Scoop: Yeah, he’s not real good at following the rules of decorum and debate. He just wants to scream and yell and interrupt. That’s how the last one’s were. > Jon: It’d be cool if Biden showed up with a bunch of black guys carrying bazookas. > Scoop: Okay…! > Jon: Terrorize Trump for a change.

En fantastisk app med et enormt stort udvalg af spændende podcasts. Podimo formår virkelig at lave godt indhold, der takler de lidt mere svære emner. At der så også er lydbøger oveni til en billig pris, gør at det er blevet min favorit app.
