Hey do you like Australian accents so much you are prepared to turn them up loud enough to compensate for some recording challenges so that one half of the conversation gets all tinny and even more nasal? Of course you don't.
Which is a pity, because here is a conversation between myself and fellow Australian, M1k3y.

It's good times. We talk about Nazis, the private space programme, the utility of the eschaton, how deep politics is still chaos magic, how amazing it is to not be on Facebook, what happens if/when Twitter turns to shit and how to create alternatives to the monoculture.
Not enough audio for you, you greedy bastard?
Fine. Here is my recent turn on The Cult of Nick. Nick and I talk about the whether archons are literally real, the Devil, remote viewing and mainstream media's suspicious refusal to cover the paranormal. For those who don't know, Nick has a background in commercial radio which makes him an excellent podcaster. To me, those skills really come across in his ability to phrase questions in a way that brings the discussion right back to where an abject beginner can still follow it, even when his subjects wander off into minutiae. This is, of course, an essential skill for a radio presenter. You don't want your astrophysicist or microbiologist getting all technical for an audience of normals.
I've been thinking about that since we spoke a couple of weeks ago, actually. You will notice the difference with my discussion with M1k3y, which presupposes a lot of familiarity with chaos magic, The Invisibles, parapolitics, the counter culture, etc. I have very little experience with explaining things to beginners because I don't see myself in a teaching role and either don't care enough about beginners to help them or possibly care so much about beginners that I am loathe to attempt to help them. So they are very different discussions and I enjoyed them both in different ways.
Oh, and he opens with "I don't always fully agree with Gordon" which I seem to be getting quite a lot lately, even in effusive emails from readers. This caveat strikes me as functionally redundant. I don't fully agree with Gordon either. Who fully agrees with anyone? Are we all using this caveat now or am I just morphing into some kind of David-Icke-style guilty pleasure?
My voice in your actual face!
Exactly like Dolly Parton, I have a show in Glastonbury for one day only! Come on down and see me talk about dragons for an hour and then answer questions about why the actual fuck I am talking about dragons. (Ummm.... dragons?!)
If you are not convenient to Glastonbury -and let's be honest, no one is. That's why you hide once and future kings there- then you can also get web tickets to see the presentations and receive the ebook here.
