RAS 04: Triggering Bizarro Snowflakes


We apologize for the sound quality of the last episode. We’re always experimenting with our hardware and software here at the Strangeville Podcast Network and assure you that this week’s show sounds worlds better.

SPN host of THE QUIET PLACE Jeremy Maddux recently appeared on the JOHN PODESTA’S PIZZA PARTY podcast to discuss bizarro fiction. The conversation quickly turned to me, for some reason, and a lot of shade was thrown.

My book covers (the artists of which have worked with a score of other bizarro and small press horror authors) my editor, the quality of my storytelling (even though the author in question has a lower average rating on Goodreads than I do. His “female” alter-ego pen name has an even worse rating, even after he rated his own books) and of course, my virtue were all criticized.

Jeremy wasn’t asked to, nor was he required to defend me, but he did a great job in doing so anyway. Listen to the interview here for the full context of the discussion. What follows is my response to several of the accusations leveled at me during the show.

Until next time, gang. Keep ranting!

RAS 03: Mutually Assured Censorship


Kevin is joined today by THE QUIET PLACE host Jeremy Maddux as they discuss CNN’s firing of Kathy Griffin after she posted salacious photographs of herself holding the severed head of US President Donald Trump.

What does it mean for liberty and free speech lovers that the new right is now utilizing the same types of doxing and career assassination tactics against members of the leftist media?

Is there any hope for those who value freedom above all else in this new wild west of mutually assured censorship?

RAS 01: Living And Dying On The Internet

In this, the first episode of the philosophy and critical thinking podcast, RANTING AT STRANGERS, Ben and Kevin wax philosophical about what it means to live and, eventually, to die on the internet.

They discuss the gruesome livestreamed suicide of 12 year old Katelyn Nicole Davis, and the brutal livestream kidnapping and beating of a mentally handicapped man in Chicago.

Kevin talks about the first wave of internet chat rooms in the 90s and Ben talks about what it was like being born into a world that was already fully online.

They discuss how social media controls the lives of its users and gets them addicted to that next instant message or notification, and what the first livestreamed casket funeral on social media will be like.

Listen as two generations discuss life on and off the internet.
