RAW and other topics on the 'Vayse' podcast

There are more interesting podcasts out there than I can really keep up with, but I did want to recommend the latest Vayse podcast featuring Mark Pilkington, who runs the Strange Attractor Press and also is a writer and does music. Official site here with commendably detailed links and show notes, but you should also be able to find it on your favorite podcasting app. 

Toward the end of the podcast, Pilkington and the show hosts, Peter C Hine and Stephen James Buckley, talk about Robert Anton Wilson's Cosmic Trigger book and how influential it has been on many of the show's guests. Pilkington also talks about the upcoming RAW biography by Prop Anon (e.g. Gabriel Kennedy) that Strange Attractor will be putting out this fall, and promises that it will be very thorough and based on a great deal of research. 

There is also interesting discussion about Pilkington's UFOlogy book, Mirage Men (it sure sounds like it would interest anyone who enjoyed Adam Gorightly's book, Saucers, Spooks and Kooks, I was disappointed  Pilkington did not mention Adam). Other topics include Pilkington's adventures in making crop circles and Pilkington's strong recommendation of a book called Chameleo by Robert Guffey, which Pilkington calls a great Fortean book. 

Go to the show notes for links,  relevant social media accounts, etc. 

Hat tip, Tracy Harms.
