ETC Pod #5: Friar Chris - Gringo On The Hill

The first of three expansive (and nearly politics-free!) episodes with Chris Dyson, we discuss the mystical route leading to his founding of The Hof, his hostel in the Cordillera Blanca range of the Peruvian Andes and the difficulties he encountered in being a gringo outsider trying to integrate into the nearby Quechuan community, including the multiple robberies endured during his six and a half years living in Peru. We also discuss "The Personal Peace Corp" and the Dennis Doctrine, tribalism, non-caucasian based racism, apocalypse cultism, the epidemic of human disconnection, the related death of the sense of community, and more.

ETC Pod #4: Self-Delusion, Solutions In Truth, and A Side of Crow

In this sprawling episode, Todd attacks Quixoteism & "personal truth": the human tendency toward egocentric self-delusion and how the Sausage Party Hope resides in the commitment to observing objective reality. He also discusses artist "activism", content control and the new feed, third party futility, and the need for one political religion or the other to inter the opposing half of the country inside ideological "concentration camps". You're also given the gift of laughter as he dines on his Twitter "marketing" crow. 2018 says, "Never Say Never!"

ETC Pod #3: Capitalist Media 101: It's (We) The People, Stupid

In this dialectically blasphemous episode: thoughts on the popular escapist conspiracy theory about the mainstream media “dumbing us down to keep us docile and ignorant." I also dissect the reasons why our media is now composed nearly exclusively of boutique news outlets producing chum for echo chamber sharks, media desensitization and the cure, as well as the need for sugar-coated truth, and our insulated and self-cleansing propaganda ecosystems (news, standup, and Hollywood).

Also: thoughtless “opinion”, white inheritance, Sausage Party Hope, #FleecingTheFucktards, and more. Not for everyone. Ask your doctor if Toddzilla is right for you. Use only as directed. And heed the intro!
