Your outfit is trash (as a compliment)

This #Podcast is noteworthy, especially if you genuinely want to live in a more #Sustainable way with respect to the #Environment. It might mean you have to change the way you chose #Clothing and other #Apparel, but you'll be doing the right thing for the right reasons.

Next time you buy clothes, buy ones that will last longer, and keep them longer. Own fewer items. Consider getting and giving items at consignment shops. Look into repairing clothes instead of discarding them; all my childhood jeans had iron-on patches in the knees.

#WOW! This #Podcast has a LOT going on!!!

The DARKNET DIARIES website linked in the webpage preview attachment at the bottom of this post has all their sources for the story ready for you to scrutinize. You have retired #US #Navy people going to private #InfoSec / #SurveillanceCapitalism companies overseas. You have #FalseFront's of these private #Spy companies being #Exposed. You have the links to #MiddleEast nations using the "services" in order to do #Khashoggi style #Hack, catch & kill operations on #Journalists for telling #TruthToPower. You have #Whistleblower's who didn't blow a whistle till these "companies" went #Psycho on the employees for showing they had some #Moral #Character.

This story is the seed for a #Blockbuster #Bollywood / #Hollywood #Thriller #Suspense #Action #Movie. Although after hearing the latest from Jeremy Scahill on The INTERCEPTED Podcast I'm being made aware—from a primary source—that the #CIA spends time and money the way the #Mossad does on effecting legitimate films in order to adjust them into #Propaganda to serve their agency's needs.

#Corruption and sunlight on it abounds in this little one hour story.



Is There a Revolution for Women In Science? Are Things Finally Changing?

A great episode investigating #UnconsciousBias in #Academia (where they think they are imune). I didn't really have a clue what Unconscious #Bias was before hearing about it in this episode, but now I kind of know that I don't fully understand something I knew nothing about before.

I've often heard people hurry to inject the argument that we should select based on #Merit, not by skin color or sex-organs at birth, whenever #AffirmativeAction or some other hiring rules come to play and it sounds tempting to accept it despite that its usually angry white males who deliver that argument. This #Podcast delivers #objective, #empirical #evidence that refutes the idea that our current society can accurately perform #MeritBased #Hiring even when we are trying to do it. We must do some kind of skewing of our aim to be on the ideal target because our unconscious bias is making us perform consistently off target.

Screaming Into The Void: How Outrage Is Hijacking Our Culture, And Our Minds


[He said knowingly with a smug sense of #Outrage and #Righteous #Indignation.] The gist of this episode is that we have #Evolutionary reward systems to be outraged at a person's reprehensible actions, but that sub-system was developed with small groupings of humanoids in face-to-face interactions, not #Electronic #SocialMedia.

There are lots of things to say about this episode of the #HiddenBrain #Podcast, and I'll start with my own personal worry that I'm part of the problem. I feel like I'm posting important content that is worth people's time to think about and I'm convinced that it will lead to a better world, but...

I also have this #Hypothesis that EVERYBODY thinks they are doing the right thing for the right reasons at all times. If I scrutinize the state of affairs at the times in my past when I made regrettable mistakes, I could see how I was mistakenly doing wrong while thinking I was the hero doing the right thing, AND making the world a better or safer place! If I give a #Deplorable person's actions a charitable review, I can see how they are misguided and thought they were doing the right thing and were making the world a better place despite doing the opposite with their actions.

It seems like open-minded #Discourse with people who are #Disagreeable to your position (as opposed to you personally), is a great way to find out when your favorite idea isn't built on solid ground.

If you think you are an #Influencer somewhere on the #SurveillanceCapitalism #SocialMedia or on a #Federated system, I urge you to listen to this short and powerful podcast and reflect on yourself with unbiased scrutiny to see if you are part of the problem or part of the solution.



CD201: WTF is the Federal Reserve?

Okay, I'm really getting a 💖 for this Jen Briney person. I haven't heard all her work yet, but of the things I have heard I'm #Enamored!

I'm jumping ahead in her #Podcast list to a recent episode and for a person who didn't understand the #FederalReserve #Bank to get it so right and with such a wonderful attitude of #Contempt is truly #Amazing. She's worth you donating money to her as an ongoing basis.

I know of no other source who so cleanly exposes the #USA's #Legislation an how it affects everybody in such a #Populist way. Someday she will be known as an #American #Hero for her #Journalistic work.

The Trumped-up Economy and the coming world of hurt...

Back in August, #TheSignal #Podcast did an episode called How to start a currency war,

and it gave us a very foreboding message about one of the very real possibilities we are facing worldwide if my countries #Asshole in the #WhiteHouse continues making decisions to profit his ego and his massively wealthy donors bottom-lines.


Just this week, that same podcast aired another show along the same lines as the one linked above called, What happens in a recession.

The show paints a grim picture for the future, but it's not a dystopian fantasy, it's a likely outcome.


Because I tend to be a contrarian, I looked for a silver lining. This type of an economic downturn, while it's helping the rich, hurting the middle-class, and not affecting the poor, it will be helping the fight against #ClimateChange. We will be doing less of everything that releases carbons into the atmosphere, and less of everything that degrades the earth and sea.

Olga Lautman on the Russian Mafia

This one is so new that the #Podcast isn't even available on the Gaslit Nation website yet. I used the Lybsyn podcast manager to get the content here.

Olga "knows where the bodies are buried" when it comes to #NYC #Mobsters. She's in the know with the #Jewish and #Russian #Mob's and she's naming names, and putting string from one person to another.

The #RudyGiuliani thing was amazing. #Giuliani as the NY State Prosecutor got famous for going after Organized Crime, but now I see that was just him using public funds to clear out the #Italians so that the #Russians he was connected to could have it easier.

Trump's big gamble on Atlantic City

#LOLZ, the @FailureShow aka: #SpectacularFailures #Podcast took some time this episode to have a look at the #Trump #Scams before he had the power to end the world. I knew he was a #ShitBag back in the 1980s.

Just listening to this #Podcast from 2016, you know, from before #Trump was unleashed on the world with 5 infinity stones. This story reveals why plenty of #American's could reject #Hillary #Clinton.

How the GOP Got Here

If you are a lover of #Logic and #Whitty #Satire, this is so worth hearing at least the first 5 minutes of Mike Pesca's #Podcast embedded below. There's 1:15 in ad content at the start. He's exposing the absurdity of the responses by Trump types of, "No you are the racist!".

A funeral industry giant keels over

(This post looks best when viewed directly on #Friendica)
This is another great #Podcast for the @Stock Picking Discussion forum. The detail I caught in the story making it worth mentioning is one that might go past people who don't think about #Finance. It won't take you long to listen to this show, but here's the...
spoiler/rant alert:
The Financial Industry wanders from one type of thing to another with their big-money the way a grain farmer goes out to reap the crops, except the financial industry doesn't plant the crops, it just kills the farmer and takes the crops. The pattern is the money-hawks will look for where the middle-class stores or spends their cash, then they plot the attack, and you'll see them swoop in to monopolize things, pervert #Free #Market #Capitalism so that you're "over a barrel", then they will take it all till the middle-class is on the edge of becoming lower-class again. Based on the podcast, notice the way there was no death-business, then there was a business contrived for it, then the Wall Street types noticed it, swooped in and started making people pay for their hole in the ground decades ahead of time so they could get rich by investing your promise to be buried in the dirt. Right now they are doing schemes with #Residential #Housing and other #RealEstate a little different than they did earlier this decade. In the last decades, they were raiding retirement funds; even the Mafia made good on pensions. In the '80s & '90s, it was churn & burn the accounts because the youth of the day didn't believe their grandparents' stories of how Stock Brokers screwed them in the '20s & '30s. Almost every generation has had untold wealth extracted from its masses and funneled into the accounts of these industry giants and some to their minions.


The main point of all this is to beware of what the owners of & workers on #WallStreet decide to make a run at. You don't have to get #Screwed by them. Innoculate yourself. If you know they are trying to do it (hint: they always are), and what they are trying to do it with, you're well on your way to preventing them from getting over on you. Your common sense will do most of the rest.



Lendy.co.uk a P2P lending service is going bankrupt after a few years of operations...

I spend a lot of time thinking about alternatives to #Banking. I'm not really sure how I feel about this story yet. I first heard about it in the last few minutes of the FT #Podcast called #BankingWeekly.




It appears that the Lendy company had been scaling operations up significantly since about January of 2016. Financially, they looked honorable. Theoretically, they seemed as feasible as ride-sharing services. They knew people with money, and people that needed money, so they were a glorified dating service that matched up people with capital to enterprising people. What could go wrong?

Lendy’s overdue loans hit 68% of book as FCA monitors £8m lawsuit
Two thirds of active loans issued by Lendy are now overdue while the peer-to-peer lender has also resorted to asking the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for help in a multi-million-pound contract dispute with a borrower.


I can't help but prejudge this by thinking that they took the higher risk type enterprises that banks wouldn't—probably for damn good reasons—and with that higher risk, they didn't secure methods and plans to negotiate fair, reasonable, and equitable repayment of such risky endeavors. I sincerely hope they get their endeavor straightened out because alternatives to centralized banking are important in an egalitarian world.
