It was not easy to pick my favorite Unwelcome Guests episodes. You can discuss your favorites on this page's discussion page.
| #87 - The Red Pill|
(Consensus Illusion and World Domination)
I think my favorite of Lyn Gerry's episodes, which helped me to review what I thought I knew about world political and economic history, partly rebroadcast in episode 505.
| #510 - The Race Towards Global Consciousness|
(Hitting Rock Bottom & Realising The Reunion)
A forward looking and optimistic episode in which I describe how a future electronic replacement for money could work as a 'nervous system for the world' by communicating people's feelings across social relationships.
| #543 - The Corruption of Money|
(The Perverse Power of The Price Tag)
This combines one of my favorite John Taylor Gatto presentations with an audio version of a presentation I created about the power of money to corrupt and subtly denature whatever it comes into contact with.
| #649 - Why Money Will End|
(And How To Prepare)
The most personal of all the episodes I've made, a positive vision of how we could say goodbye to the money system en masse and live a more relaxed life of abundance instead.
| #517 - JFK and The Unspeakable|
(Khrushchev, Cuba, World Peace and Martyrdom of JFK/MLK)
An inspired retelling of the events leading up to the Cuban missile crisis, by James Douglass, including a parallel I made between M.A.D. and the money system.
| #599 - What Economics Can't Tell You About Money|
(Alienation, The Black Magic of Money)
A sideways look at the mistaken assumptions which lie at the heart of economics.
| #523 - Ivan Illich and The Collapse Of Power|
(Nowtopia and Why Money is not Power)
An introduction to the great (and disturbing) modern prophet, Ivan Illich.
| #506 - Wage Slavery and Moral Dumbing Down|
(Extrinsic Manipulation versus Internal Motivation)
Alfie Kohn and others on the moral aspect of Dumbing Down - how people are persuaded not to care for one another, or at least persuaded that they should try not to.
| #23 - Double Dipping into Misery|
(Crack, the CIA and the Prison Industrial Complex)
A classic show about CIA drug dealing.
| #551 - Understanding The Financial 'Crisis'|
(The Specter Haunting Europe)
If you've ever wondered what will happens if the economy "collapses" - or why commercial media never seem to clearly explain what that even means, this could be a good one for you...
| #536 - Beyond Hierarchy|
I had a lot of fun assembling this collection of some of my favorite Unwelcome Guests and merging them together with music.
| #528 - The Bilderberg Group|
(Conspiracies and The Fiction of Government Power)
This episode wasn't easy as the organization's strict policy of secrecy has been effective at preventing details leaking out, but this was such an important topic that I felt I had to address it.
| #327 - Witch Hunters and True Believers|
(Ideology and Social Control)
An informative parallel between the current 'War On Terror' and the witch hunts of the middle ages.
| #568 - 9/10 Anniversary Special Edition|
(Unaccountable Accounts from Powerdown to Stand Down)
A good starter on Sep 11th in case you're new to the show and need an overview of this essential topic.
| #285 - Post-Soviet Lessons for a Post-American Century|
(A Reading of Dmitry Orlov's Essay on Surviving Economic Collapse)
One of the most practical episodes of Unwelcome Guests; essential listening if your concerned about preparing for the prospect of money becoming worthless.
| #572 - Monopoly and Money|
(Contradictions of Capitalism)
Deserves a special mention as it's the most popular episode by far.
Some of my favorite series:
| The Underground History of American Education|
(An Intimate Investigation into the Prison of Modern Schooling)
| Disciplined Minds|
(A New Angle on Matters Financial A Critical Look at Salaried Professionals and the Soul-battering System That Shapes Their Lives)
