A couple of podcasts

I have a long commute to work and sometimes I pass the time by listening to podcasts. A couple that might be of interest here include Episode 23 of the Right Where You Are Sitting Now podcasts, close to two hours of discussion on Robert Anton Wilson from Ken Eakins and company. Lots of discussion about mysticism and reprogramming yourself, but I noticed there was no discussion of topics such as libertarianism or James Joyce. I don't know if this is a Brit thing or a Right Where You Are Sitting Now thing, or just an illustration that even a long podcast about RAW has to leave out a lot of topics. Anyway, many interesting points are made in the podcast, although at times it has a certain slapdash quality. At one point, one of the experts claims that no books have been written about RAW, an assertion that might surprise Eric Wagner.

Wagner pops up as a guest on R.U. Sirius' 2006 podcast about Robert Anton Wilson. It's quite good.

I have not seen Antero Alli's name come up in this blog. Some Wilson fans do not take to his style very well at all. I appreciate his practicality.

On the podcast tangnet, several of AA's can be found by scrolling down a little on this page:

Not all the podcasts are 8-Circuit Brain (8CB) related.
