The long-delayed Mr. Haney’s Truck returns with an interview with two mavens of the curious, the kooky and the esoteric.
We talk about Discordianism and it’s maybe link to the Big Lebowski, pirate radio and other stuff. I wanted to have these guys on because I think they are smart and interesting and outside the mainstream without being goofy.
Greg Bishop is an author, freelance writer and podcaster whose podcast Radio Misterioso features conversations with smart, forward thinking people in the areas of UFOs, consciousness and whatever strikes his fancy that he think is interesting.
His latest book is, It Defies Language, a collection of essays from the now defunct UFO Mystic. His other books include Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth and Weird Califonia: Your Travel Guide to California’s Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets.
His podcast can be heard live on Sunday nights at 11pm Pacific Time on the Radio Misterioso website. It can also be downloaded from iTunes.
Adam Gorightly is also an author and writer who chronicles conspiracies and the arcane. According to his site,
Adam Gorightly has been chronicling fringe culture for two decades. His articles have appeared in nearly every ‘zine, underground magazine, counter-cultural publication, and conspiratorial website imaginable. Bringing a mischievous sense of Prankster-Discordianism to the zany world of fringe culture, once Gorightly connects his dots, readers are plunged into alternative universes which forever alter their view of ‘reality.’
Gorightly’s latest is Historia Discordia and he has written other books like Caught in the Crossfire: Kerry Thornley, Oswald and the Garrison Investigation and The Prankster and the Conspiracy: The Story of Kerry Thornley and How He Met Oswald and Inspired the Counterculture.
Adam used to have a podcast and I found the archive
I love these guys. We really didn’t get into the meat of their ouvre, but I wanted to have them on because I think they’re two smart folks that bring intelligence to what is called the “fringe” which I see as a pejorative term.
These guys mention names you may not know but if you read their books, you’ll get it.
I’m also thinking of changing the name of the podcast to, “Right, Right.”
Oh I also mention the name “Wilson” and I meant Robert Anton Wilson
