In this episode, Dylan, Brent, and Forrest discuss the theory that the earth is expanding. They cover the early 20th century origins of the theory and it's bid to replace the contracting earth theory. After that, they discuss the role Marie Tharp's cartography played in overturning the expanding earth in favor of plate tectonics. Lastly, they discuss the main booster of expanding eartherism today, comic book artist Neal Adams and his disgust over subduction.
In the latest installment of their None Dare Call it News series, Dylan, Brent, and Forrest discuss the New York Times article "#MAGA Church: The Doomsday Prophet Who Says the Bible Predicted Trump" by Sam Kestenbaum. We learn that Trump is Jehu, the Clintons are Ahab and Jezebel, and it's perfectly ok to not tell people your works fiction are totally not prophecies.
In the first installment of their mental illness denialism series, Dylan, Brent, and Forrest cover the psychiatric landscape in the 1950s that gave birth to the Bible of anti-psychiatry: The Myth of Mental Illness by Thomas Szasz. Along the way they debunk the more common Szaszian arguments and discuss their own personal experiences with mental illness.
Because of Dylan's nefarious kidney stone affliction, we decided to give you a minisode this week featuring Brent (and his cousin Jub Jubson) reading the poems of Lyndon LaRouche, and Forrest explaining our new series, None Dare Call It Wrong!, and correcting the mistakes we made in our previous episode on mass incarceration.
In this week's episode, Dylan, Brent, and Forrest discuss the 2019 report "Mass Incarceration: The Whole Pie 2019" from the Prison Policy Initiative. They focus on the report's explanation of five myths about mass incarceration: the role of non-violent drug offenders, private prisons, prison labor, community supervision, and violent and sexual offenses on mass incarceration.

In the final installment of their series on Lyndon LaRouche, Dylan, Brent, and Forrest delve into LaRouche's anti-environmentalism and accusations of genocide against population growth folks. They also discuss LaRouche's victim complex, accusations that Obama is basically Hitler, and the ludicrous conspiracy theory that the White Helmets are in fact a terrorist organization.
In the third part of their series on Lyndon LaRouche, Dylan, Brent, and Forrest cover LaRouche and Co. as they move their headquarters to Leesburg, Virginia. Once settled in, they quickly make a nuisance of themselves and begin fomenting ludicrous falsehoods about AIDS, going so far as to form PANIC to promote quarantining AIDS patients. Even with all this, LaRouche still has time to create the most multidimensional system of paranoia in American history, bash Satanic philosophers, and wind up in jail.
