Part 1 of our extended conversation with Derick Varn. The full talk is up at Patreon at http://www.patreon.com/givingthemic/ - C Derick Varn returns to give us a primer on how to interpret conspiratorial claims, and takes on a glorious history of what certain intelligence services were up to after WWII and why most coverups aren't to hide secretive evil dealings but usually just obscuring fuck-ups. Topics covered include: Rambo 3, Predator, Rogerian Arguments, George Lincoln Rockwell, business conspiracies nowhere near as sexy as government conspiracies, why did the 9/11 Report get limited from the start, parsimony as useful tool, and so much more. ------ Links: Richard Aoki as FBI informant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE9HRp0RIV8 Heavy Radicals: : The FBI's Secret War on America's Maoists The Revolutionary Union / Revolutionary Communist Party 1968-1980 - http://www.zero-books.net/books/heavy-radicals The Richard Wolff video from 2008 I referred to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HTkEBIoxBA - Derick Varn's previous appearance: http://goo.gl/RHtnGy - - - - Varn's first collection of poetry _Apocalyptics_ is out from Unlikely Press. http://www.unlikelystories.org/unlikely-books/apocalyptics - Check out Varn's podcasts Symptomatic Redness here: https://dietsoap.podomatic.com/ - Follow Jacob on Twitch! http://www.twitch.tv/jacobmercy - @jacobmercy @givingthemic - Questions/comments/suggestions for great local Korean food: givingthemic@gmail.com - http://facebook.com/givingthemic/ - Help us make the show! http://www.patreon.com/givingthemic - - - - Main theme by The Mysterious Breakfast'r Cereal on SoundCloud @chiptheme - - All items trademarked and copyright their respective owners.
