  1. I spent a whole afternoon or two listening to Parenti talks after you linked to a video of his over on the forums. Really great that you got to talk to him on the podcast. I wish you had more time with him as a good bit of the running time is just getting over the initial awkwardness.

    I am surprised he mentioned chemtrails at the end. That might just be me; I am not super-familiar with his work beyond a few hours of youtube binging.

  2. I would’ve guessed that Mr. Parenti would have had more to say regarding group infiltration & controlled opposition (around 36 minute mark). He mentions some experience with double-agents/agent provocateurs and says that they were easy to spot, but seems to gloss over the possibility of entire groups/movements being fakes & fronts.

    Loved it when he said (around 7:35 min. mark), “They’re very intelligent….No, it’s not that they don’t know what they’re doing; it’s that *you* don’t know what they’re doing.”
