71. A Failed Coup and a Failed Reality TV Show with Rocco Castoro and Emily Molli

We keep hoping that the Trump administration will become old news, but the stories of its incompetence and corruption keep coming. One of our favorites is Seven Days in January, a new podcast about Mark Burnett and Elizabeth Koch's failed attempt to turn the Presidential Inauguration into a reality series for Amazon Studios. According to our guests, the deal "evaporated as quickly as it appeared, leaving ominous questions to linger around F.T.C. oversight of Amazon’s $8.5 billion MGM Studios acquisition and their knowledge of 20 hours of unaired footage." A new investigative journalism outlet called The Knows got its hand on the audio, and it's airing it on its new podcast for the first time. For more info, check out the website:

About the guests

Rocco Castoro is the editor-in-chief of The Knows and used to be EIC of VICE Media, gaining awards and accolades while peeking behind the curtain of the news and media industry. After he resigned at an ethics conference he was given a five-year non-compete unheard of in media. His experiences forced him to develop unorthodox, yet effective reporting methods.

Emily Molli is The Knows’s special projects editor. She started as a wire reporter and photojournalist but quickly adapted to fill various roles in the evolving digital media industry. After dropping out of college to cover the 2016 presidential election, she covered social movements across the U.S., Europe, and Hong Kong. Her visual work has been featured by major news agencies, outlets, and networks as well as in documentaries & feature films.

68. Gabriel of Urantia Warns of the Apocalypse… But This Time We're Afraid He Means It

68. Gabriel of Urantia Warns of the Apocalypse… But This Time We're Afraid He Means It

In Tumacácori, Arizona, a stone’s throw from the U.S. border with Mexico, roughly 85 “destiny reservists” await their fate. They are the followers of Gabriel of Urantia. Born Anthony J. Delevin in Pittsburgh in 1946, Gabriel’s life work is a community known as the Global Community Communications Alliance (GCCA). They live in a compound in the desert where they raise animals, harvest hemp, and study their prophet’s teachings. This is all in preparation for the end of this world, and the coming of the next.

And the apocalypse, according to Gabriel, is closer now than it’s ever been.

Last week, Paladin called the cult’s radio station KVAN-FM last week to address the people of Tucson on the air. “We are living in a transition period,” Gabriel/Paladin says in the voice of the trans-dimensional space creature.

On today’s Failed State Update, former GCCA member Joshua Lilly listens to Gabriel's latest broadcast with us and helps us understand both the message and cult psychology in general.

But first, J.G. and Lenny discuss Monarch mind-control conspiracies and why they are the perfect myth of our time. This is the subject of Monarch, the debut novel by Candice Wuehle.

66. Daniel Muessig, "real-life Saul Goodman" going to prison

66. Daniel Muessig, "real-life Saul Goodman" going to prison

Daniel Muessig is a Pittsburgh folk hero, mostly because of his over-the-top ad for his law practice:

Any day now he will go to prison for five years for conspiring to distribute 100 kilograms or more of marijuana and possession of marijuana. He was busted by an FBI task force who ID'd him through a wiretap.

Of course he broke the law, but should we be sending anyone to jail over marijuana?

The fact is, even though we live in a world where marijuana is quasi-legal, there's still a prohibition — the illegal pot business is full of very shady people doing very dangerous stuff, which is why the rewards are so great. When Muessig was busted, they found almost half a million dollars in cash. What does it say about this country that someone would have to go to such lengths to pay off their student loans?

Here's an epic 2-hour interview of Daniel Muessig conducted by JG Michael. They cover everything from American drug law to the Jewish mob history of Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood, to the details of the man some people are calling a real-life Saul Goodman.

64. Failed State Jukebox with Charles Ochelli and J.G. Michael

Failed State Jukebox is a regular item on the Failed State Update website where we look at dystopian pop music. Usually, it's far-right or conspiracy-themed, which is both disturbing and hilarious. These are fun articles, but there's a point to them. The right-wing culture industry tells us something about a sector of the American public usually ignored by the mainstream.

In today's episode of the podcast, co-hosts J.G. Michael and Joseph L. Flatley are joined by Charles Ochelli, the host of The Ochelli Effect, to spin some tunes and discuss the failed state of popular culture.

60. The Finders: The Movie featuring Boys' Bible Study (the podcast) (BONUS EPISODE)

60. The Finders: The Movie featuring Boys' Bible Study (the podcast) (BONUS EPISODE)

In this episode of Failed State Update, Joseph L. "Lenny" Flatley goes toe-to-toe with the hosts of the Boys' Bible Study podcast. The Bible Boys, as we like to call them, wade deep into the murky waters of the Christian pop culture industry, reviewing the weirdest and most interesting independently produced films with a certain message. Since that message often includes far-right and Christian nationalist propaganda, their reviews should be of particular interest to Failed State Update listeners. Besides, the podcast is really, really fun.

For the Bible Boys' second appearance on Failed State Update we discuss the film The Finders by conspiracy theorist auteur/New Jersey's own Tracy Lucca. You might recall that in real life, The Finders was an alternative lifestyle commune that got sucked into the satanic panic in the 1980s. The group no longer exists, but its memory is kept alive by a whole generation of conspiracy theorists who claim that the community was actually a cult that engaged in kidnapping and the ritual abuse of children for the CIA. The whole thing is absurd. It's also the mythology behind Lucca's film.

Here is some background in case you're curious about the real, actual Finders, as opposed to the myth:

58. Alfred W. McCoy: To Govern the Globe: World Orders and Catastrophic Change

Regular listeners of Failed State Update are in for a real treat. Our guest, Alfred W. McCoy, is an American historian and educator. Currently the Fred Harvey Harrington Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, he specializes in the history of the Philippines, foreign policy of the United States, European colonization of Southeast Asia, the illegal drug trade, and CIA covert operations. His most recent book is To Govern the Globe: World Orders and Catastrophic Change.

And some more big news: Beginning this episode, we are changing up the format. The show now features two hosts, Joseph L. Flatley, the founder and editor of Failed State Update, and J.G. Michael, host of the Parallax Views podcast. We hope you enjoy the show, and feel free to tweet at us if you feel that we've made a terrible mistake.

56. Tom Mellett on Arthur Young, Pseudoscience (or not), and the Cult of UFO Twitter

Tom Mellett is a retired high school teacher of math and physics who delights in trolling UFO Twitter and Facebook because their emotional maturity is at a 9th grade level (as he puts it). He is also a cat butler in Los Angeles. We got on the phone after my story "The New Intergalactic Cold War" caused a (quite brief) firestorm on Twitter last week, and fortunately I recorded the conversation, because it really is podcast gold.

On this episode of FAILED STATE UPDATE Tom and I discuss the philosopher/engineer Arthur M. Young, parascyhologist (and frequent beneficiary of government contracts) Hal Puthoff, and the very nature of knowledge itself. Be sure to follow Tom on Twitter, and be sure to subscribe to the FAILED STATE UPDATE NEWSLETTER if you haven't yet. It's free, and it's fabulous.

55. Sherry Shriner’s Deadly Anti-New World Order Online Doomsday Cult

Anthony Russo is the author of Dragged Into the Light: Truthers, Reptilians, Super Soldiers, and Death Inside an Online Cult, and for the next fifty-three minutes we'll discuss his book about Sherry Shriner, an online cult leader in rural Ohio who preached a bizarre combination of reptilian conspiracies, orgone energy pseudoscience, and discredited "bible code" theories. She briefly made headlines in 2017 when one of her followers was murdered by another former follower. Shriner died earlier this year, at the age of 45. Her beliefs were all over the place, but she must have had something going for her, because to this day people are still finding meaning in her BlogTalk Radio ramblings and bizarre YouTube videos.

53. R. Kelly Found Guilty Of Racketeering And Sex Trafficking

REPOST: After decades of accusations and a weeks-long federal trial, R. Kelly has been found guilty of charges including sexual exploitation of a child, bribery, racketeering and sex trafficking that will put him in prison from 10 years to life. I figure now is as good a time as any to repost this interview with journalist Jim Derogatis, who did as much as anyone to put him in jail.

For fifteen years, DeRogatis was the pop music critic for the Chicago Sun-Times. It was while there that Jim and his colleague Abdon Pallasch became the first reporters to expose R. Kelly's sex trafficking cult. His book Soulless: The Case Against R. Kelly both exposes what rich people get away with in this country and gives the reader a first-hand account of the work that investigative journalists do. I think it's one of the most important books of 2019.

45. Buckland Museum of Witchcraft & Magick Director Steven Intermill

Raymond Buckland founded The Buckland Museum of Witchcraft and Magick in 1966. After visiting the late Gerald Gardner and his collection on the Isle of Man, Raymond was inspired to start a collection of his own. While working for British Airways, he was able to acquire many of the artifacts in this collection from all around the world. He initially displayed his museum on a few shelves in the basement of his Long Island, N.Y. home. However, over time, Raymond’s witchcraft collection rapidly grew to well over 500 artifacts, ranging from Ancient Egyptian ushabtis to documented artifacts from the Salem Witch trials. This was the first museum of its kind in the United States with an anthropological approach to the world of folklore and the supernatural.

This episode of FSU features Steven Intermill, the director of the museum, which has been located in Cleveland since 2017. We talk about the museum itself, alternative religions, harassment by fundamentalist weirdos, and much more.

37. Mark Jacobson, author of Pale Horse Rider

We are living in a time of unprecedented distrust in America…

Faith in the government is at an all-time low, and political groups on both sides of the aisle are able to tout preposterous conspiracy theories as gospel, without much opposition. “Fake news” is the order of the day. This book is about a man to whom all of it points, the greatest conspiracist of this generation and a man you may not have heard of.

A former U.S. naval intelligence worker, Milton William Cooper published his manifesto Behold a Pale Horse in 1991. Since then it has gone on to sell hundreds of thousands of copies, becoming the number-one bestseller in the American prison system. According to Behold a Pale Horse, JFK was assassinated—because he was about to reveal that extraterrestrials were about to take over the earth—by his driver, an alien himself; AIDS is a government conspiracy to decrease the population of blacks, Hispanics, and homosexuals; and the Illuminati are secretly involved with the U.S. government to manage relationships with extraterrestrials. Cooper died in a shootout with Apache County police in 2001, one month after September 11, in the year in which he had predicted catastrophe.

In Pale Horse Rider, journalist Mark Jacobson not only tells the story of Cooper’s fascinating life but also provides the social and political context for American paranoia. Indeed, with the present NSA situation and countless other shadowy government dealings often in the news, aren’t we right to suspect that things may not be as they seem?

35. Stuart Schrader / Badges Without Borders: How Global Counterinsurgency Transformed American Policing (repost)

Stuart Schrader is a Lecturer/Assistant Research Scientist in Sociology at Johns Hopkins University and the author of Badges Without Borders: How Global Counterinsurgency Transformed American Policing. In this episode of Failed State Update, we talk about the little-understood facts that the United States is an empire, and that what our police do at home has a striking resemblance to what our military does overseas. Of course, this has some very serious implications for the current resistance movement that's been so busy on the streets of America since the murder of George Floyd.

34. Vincent Bevins / The Jakarta Method (repost)

Clearly, the American Empire is clocking out — it's anybody's guess whether it will go with a whimper or with a bang, but it seems likely that we'll know the answer to that question relatively soon. But what did it take to forge this empire in the first place, and how can it be that so many Americans are unaware that this imperium even exists? In the latest episode of Failed State Update, I will be speaking with Vincent Bevins, a journalist and the author of the recently released The Jakarta Method: Washington’s Anticommunist Crusade and the Mass Murder Program That Shaped Our World. As it turns out, the bloodiest and most horrific acts of American imperialism are the ones we've never heard of. Also discussed: Covid-19 as a symptom of America's collective insanity, and Russiagate as psychological projection.

33. Barbarians at the Capitol Gates w/William Arkin and Vincent Scotti Eirene

So, we couldn't go a week into the new year without a constitutional crisis... I'm disappointed in us, but I'm not surprised. In order to help understand what the hell exactly happened, I spoke to William Arkin, veteran national security reporter and prolific author. He's been on top of this story from the very beginning (indeed, from before the beginning) and you can see his reporting in the pages of Newseek or on its website:

In this episode I also speak with Vincent Scotti Eirene, longtime peace activist and media provocateur. He has some particularly trenchant insights into the events of the last 24 hours. Vincent and I were in D.C. protesting corporate globalization this time twenty years ago, so it's interesting to compare and contrast what was happening then with what is happening now.
