PODCAST RECOMMENDATIONS

Recommended Posts

I sit on the train for 2 hours a day going to and from work (Gold Coast to Brisbane)

 

I listen to CWR, Peter Schiff and FSN of course....they are my 'must listen to' podcasts.

 

But I was just wondering if there were any other good ones out there.......?????

 

What are some people's favourites?

 

Looking for something that either teaches me something or makes me laugh.

I like the BBCs Radio 4 podcast selection.

 

In particular 'Material World' a science and nature programme and the Friday night comedy show, currently the 'news Quiz' which is pretty funny!

 

There's a whole host of other programmes there to choose from.......I usually get round to these during my lunch break as those podcasts you mentioned serve me on my commute too!

If you like conspiracies, but also people like Jim Rogers etc., try Goldseek Radio. There also is Al Korelin's Economic Report ("for lack of better terms").

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert broadcast The Truth About Markets every Saturday on Resonance Fm. Its mostly funny with some serious ranting. Although Max is in tune with the Austrian school, Peter Schiff and Jim Puplava's economic outlook his politics are a strange mix of anarchy and revolution.

 

The show can sometimes be really good and sometime be really bad, often a mix of both, but it has comment on current events and is a good source of new stories and offers a very a different and humorous view on the economy.

 

You can download past episodes here.

Kunstlercast with James Howard Kunstler and Duncan Crary, about the tragic comedy of suburban sprawl.

 

They focus on themes such as malinvestment in suburbs and malls, the need to change lifestyles to match energy availability, regeneration and increasing population density in city centres etc. They have used Google Streetview on 2 recent podcasts to bring the talking to life. The contrast between Paris and Detroit is amazing - I know where I'd rather live.

Here's a few for you:

Good selection and a chance to hear the mighty Mish.

I also like Bob Hoye.

 

http://www.twowitnesses.com/

Lots of crap here but the patriot news hour is sometimes worth a listen if you can stand the ads.

The French Connection & Bob Chapman if your in the mood for "its all the fault of the Zionists & Illuminati" respectively.

 

http://commoditywatch.podbean.com/

This one of course: sometimes crap (like now with all this planetary cycles rubbish) but has done some really good interviews.

Fris & Bubb do a good job here but need to pull back from the weird stuff.

 

http://globalpublicmedia.com/

Lots here & slightly different.

Peak oil, permaculture and green stuff.

patriot news hour

 

Big fan of those two, big gold is all, world imploding and that sort of stuff, very funny, liable to make you pretty cynical.

 

I also try to listen to Karl Denninger' Market Ticker blog talk radio once a week, normally very good. 1 hr long, good analysis on markets and potential manipulation

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/MarketTicker

 

 

McAlvany Weekly Commentary - 30 mins some excellent interviews.

I would advise anyone seeking answers as to who runs the world and how they (the establishment) have created/manage our reality and what’s coming next for us, listen to Alan Watt.

 

When I first listened to this guy I thought he was bonkers as the information was so incredible, but he gives links to articles from the United Nation and non-governmental organisations, plus he is well read on history and free masonry.

 

Some people are looking for answers but it’s easy to get led down the wrong path looking and keeping you going around in circles in the process. Alan Watt may save you a lot of time searching.

 

Listen to a few audio downloads you will soon find out if this is what you are looking for.

Bobby,

Have you checked out the track record of those that use the "weird stuff"?

No one can claim 100% success with any timing tool, but if you can get to 60-70%, you can make big money,

if you use disciplined money management

Many Good podcasts here:

Includes links to: CW Radio, strangely enough

I'm warming to KMO's approach, on C-Realm:

http://c-realmpodcast.podomatic.com/

 

He's got a great voice BTW - Here's an example:

 

C-Realm Podcast #72: The Long Emergency

 

Episode 72: The Long Emergency

http://kmo.livejournal.com/331057.html

 

KMO welcomes author Dmitry Orlov back to the program for a discussion of keeping people fed in times of turmoil and for a reading from Orlov’s soon-to-be-published book, Reinventing Collapse: The Soviet Example and American Prospects. After that, James H. Kunstler, author of The Long Emergency: Surviving the End of Oil, Climate Change, and Other Converging Catastrophes of the Twenty-First Century, drops by to talk about the fate of surburbia in the post-petroleum era.

 

Dmitry Orlov appeared in C-Realm Podcast episodes twenty and twenty one.

 

Toward the end of this episode, I make reference to an interview that I heard with Michael Tsarion on Red Ice Radio.

 

Also, toward the end of the program, I read a passage from American Vulgar: The Politics of Manipulation Versus the Culture of Awarenessby Robert Grudin about physical and spiritual survival.

 

I took the Terence McKenna clip that I played between the interviews with Dmitry Orlov and James H. Kunstler from Episode 119 of Lorenzo's Psychedelic Salon: "A Crisis in Consciousness." (No links because that page seems to be broken at the moment.)

Episode 96: Kollapsnik & the Ripping Yarn

http://c-realmpodcast.podomatic.com/entry/...T13_50_32-07_00

 

KMO talks first with James Howard Kunstler about his new novel, World Made By Hand. Next he speaks with Dmitry Orlov about the 5 stages of collapse and about his book, Reinventing Collapse: The Soviet Example and American Prospects, which has just been released. KMO closes the podcast with a reading on the difference between "breakdown" and "collapse" from Thomas Homer-Dixon's excellent book, The Upside of Down: Catastrophe, Creativity, and the Renewal of Civilization.

 

Dmitry Orlov mentioned two books during our conversation which figured prominently in the formation of his thoughts on collapse:

If not up there among the links already, this guy can be interesting...

http://www.thedisciplinedinvestor.com/blog...egory/podcasts/

You just have to endure the 'gotomyPC' ads at the start of every 'cast.

 

And I'll second the Radio4 recommendations, especially Material World (if you can get used to the puns :-). I listen to R4 an awful lot. My favourite podcast is probably... http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/fooc/ ...because it often throws up unexpected gems of reportage. I think it was in one of last week's episodes that I discovered the Tamil Tigers' defeat is probably entirely due to the Chinese expanding their sphere of influence. They're building a port on the south coast and have supplied the Sri Lankan government with unlimited armaments.

This site is pretty good, I have found a lot of interesting old videos and public information films here. The best thing is the number of audio books that are available. This version of Orwell's 1984 is excellent. You can listen to them first on the webpage and then download them if its a good version. There is stuff for kids also.

It's always interesting to find new voices to try out, but... er... I'm afraid after 20 minutes of this week's broadcast my paranoidconspiratometer was screaming so loudly I couldn't listen to the rest. Besides, if there is a global conspiracy to make us less fertile then I think I probably agree with it. :-)

 

I'll have to listen to a few more before writing him off completely though.

William Greider on Alan Greenspan, Anthony Arnove on Iraq contractors

21 Sep 2007

 

This week on CounterSpin: former Federal Reserve chair Alan Greenspan is back in the news. He has a memoir out in which he tries to put some space between himself and the Bush White House. Will the press, never inclined to challenge the man they call The Maestro, facilitate Greenspan's reinvention? We'll talk with one journalist who's not a fan, Nation correspondent and author William Greider.

--------------------

 

Am halfway through Greiders book "One World Ready or Not" its blindingly good and is changing my view on globilisation big time. Serious stuff but no stupid conspiracy theories I hope! - Andrew McP would like it !

--------------------

 

Edit maybe I will download this instead

 

http://odeo.com/episodes/24376031-James-Th...William-Greider

March 2009

 

The JOURNAL profiles James Thindwa, whose campaign for economic fairness for working people in Chicago has brought him up against the city's powerful political establishment and corporate giant Wal-Mart. For Thindwa, the battle is never over. For years best-selling author William Greider sounded the alarm about Washington's unholy alliance with Wall Street and the failure of the Federal Reserve and other regulators to take preventative measures to avoid disaster. Now, he offers suggestions to the question everyone is asking: "What do we do now?"

I hope he was armed with some over-ripe tomatoes !

 

He should know how to dispose of them

Better than tomatoes - Greider certainly can construct a powerful agrument on his chosen subjects

 

http://www.thenation.com/blogs/notion/233482

 

Alan Greenspan has come back from the tomb of history to correct the record. He did not make any mistakes in his eighteen-year tenure as Federal Reserve chairman. He did not endorse the regressive Bush tax cuts of 2001 that pumped up the federal deficits and aggravated inequalities. He did not cause the housing bubble that is now in collapse. He did not ignore the stock market bubble that subsequently melted away and cost investors $6 trillion. He did not say the Iraq War is "largely about oil."

 

Check the record. These are all lies.

 

Greenspan's testimony endorsing the Bush tax cuts was extremely influential but now he wants to run away from it.

 

In the instance of Iraq, Greenspan is actually correcting his own memoir, The Age of Turbulence, which just came out. This weekend, newspapers reported provocative snippets from the book, including this: "I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what every everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil."

 

Wow, talk about your "inconvenient truth." Greenspan was blithely acknowledging what official Washington has always denied and the news media faithfully ignored. "Blood for oil." No, no, no, that's not what he meant, Greenspan corrected in a follow-up interview. [bob Woodward in Monday's Washington Post] He was only saying that "taking out Saddam was essential" for "oil security" and the global economy.

 

Are you confused? Welcome to the world of slippery truth Greenspan has always lived in. He was the Maestro, as Bob Woodward's loving portrait dubbed him. Wall Street loved the Chairman best because the traders and bankers knew he was always on their side and would come to their rescue. The major news media treated him like an Old Testament prophet. Whatever the chairman said was carved on stone tablets, even when it didn't make any sense, as it often didn't.

 

Some of us who followed his tracks more closely, were not so kind. Harry Reid, now the Democratic Senate leader, said Greenspan was "one of the biggest political hacks in Washington." Amen. I called him "the one-eyed chairman" who could always spot reasons to stomp on the real economy of work and production, but was utterly blind to the destructive chaos in the financial system. No matter. The adoration of him was nearly universal.

 

Until now. The economic consequences of his rule are accumulating and even the dullest financial reporters are stumbling on crumbs of truth about Greenspan's legendary reign. It sowed profound and dangerous imbalances in the US economy. That's what happens when government power tips the balance in favor of capital over labor, favoring super-rich over middle class and poor, then holds it there for nearly a generation.

 

Things get out of whack and now the country is paying big time. A pity reporters and politicians didn't have the nerve to ask these questions when Greenspan was in power.

 

He retired only a year ago, but is already trying to revise the history. To explain away blunders that are now a financial crisis facing his successor. To rearrange the facts in exculpatory ways. To deny his right-wing ideological bias and his raw partisanship in behalf of the Bush Republicans.

 

The man is shrewd. He can see the conservative era he celebrated and helped to impose upon the American economy is in utter ruin. He is trying to get some distance from it before the blood splashes all over his reputation. Of course, he also came back to cash in--an $8 million advance for a book that is sure to be a huge bestseller. I don't want to be unkind, but Greenspan could have avoided all the embarrassing questions if his book was posthumous.

 

I haven't the read it yet. I have a hunch I am not going to like it.
