Greg Carlwood has become a talent scout for conspiracy theories |330|

yes, dark, but hard to read the data otherwise (...) (and I have serveral upcoming shows on this)
Looking forward to those. It's just good to know that I'm not the only one wondering about this stuff.

I don't go too far down that rabbit hole, but the nazi-ification of US thru Project Paperclip is undeniable.
Unfortunately, it is. And in the light of the many really dubious and downright scary events in the US during the decades following WW II, I have to wonder how far this went, and if it's going on now even though I don't consider myself as someone who sees conspiracies at every corner. But that doesn't mean that things like the Nazis discovering antigravity, going to Andromeda or building secret bases in the antarctic from where they are now flying their saucers, have to be also true. That's totally unfounded, made-up maybe even ultra-rightwing motivated stuff IMO.

I am sorry. What Judy Wood is presenting is not science. She has a lot of great photos. Her whole hypothesis is based on speculation. The one element that she will never discuss is the thyroid cancer epidemic amongst 9/11 first responders thus constitutes "smoking gun" evidence of a nuclear event at the World Trade Center. They don't call it "Ground Zero" for nothing.

The thyroid cancer epidemic is probably the most accessible and easiest-to-grasp "smoking gun", it isn't the only one. Already in 2006. Wiliam Tahil published a report entitled "Ground Zero: The Nuclear Demolition of the World Trade Centre" (link below). In Chapter 2 of his report, Tahil studied the composition of dust samples collected by the USGS in the week following 9/11. He identified a set of correlations between elements which also prove that nuclear fission took place at Ground Zero.

I finally forced myself to watch some Judy Wood today and tend to agree with you. I was very unimpressed.

Alex's questions at the end of the podcast:

Does a conspiratorial world view do more harm than good? To Alex, that everything is a conspiracy is a given, but how far into conspiracy should we go -- what are the pros and cons of adopting a conspiratorial world view? Maybe it's better to look the other way?
I think one "con" of the conspiratorial worldview is that for some people, it seems to make them suspicious of everyone and as soon as someone doesn't agree with their particular flavor of the conspiracy, accusations of COINTELPRO start flying.

And there is a tendency for a lot of these "researchers" to act as if they have it all figured out. They have lost any sense of the complexity or even unknowability of some of these subjects. They know how it is and everyone else is wrong. Very rarely do you find someone who is willing to tread the middle ground.

this is definitely inside baseball, but that's ok with me :)

we've seen this kind of infighting among fringe groups a million times, but I don't see how we get from there to "disinformation agent." why would the "evil doers" (i.e. those behind 9-11) want to promote Judy Wood's work? moreover, as we touched on in the show, Wood's extremely cranky personality seems a much simpler explanation for the drama she creates.

I still think she has raised some very interesting points. but, I'm always puzzled as to why she references the Hutchison effect. who listens after a "scientist" publishes fake youtube videos.
