Journalist and justice-seeker, Nick Bryant is not only the famed author of The Franklin Scandal: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse & Betrayal but he's also the person responsible for getting Jeffrey Epstein's Little Black Book out to the world. He returns to THC to talk about his research into the larger Epstein Network, his frustrations with the injustice, how his network compared to the Franklin Scandal, & more. He also urges listeners to, at a minimum, sign his petition demanding justice for Epstein's victims: Stop the cover-up. Demand justice for Jeffrey Epstein's victims.
It is a bit bittersweet to welcome Richard Dolan to THC with an interview that is releasing with a little extra delay due to how quickly the Coronavirus chaos jumped up to such an unprecedented place, but I'm also sure some of us are nostalgic for pre-corona conversation as well. It also puts his surveillance state comments in an interesting context, as we're now even more dependent on these technologies to communicate in the wake of this current situation than ever before. That said, Richard Dolan should be well-known to Ufology enthusiasts, as he's one of the best personalities in the UFO space. You can find his books at Richard Dolan Press and find his premium content at Richard Dolan Members. Richard is also active on Twitter @RichDolan. I would also recommend Richard's recent appearance on Skeptiko if you're hungry for more.
Allen Greenfield is not only a 35 yrs veteran of Ufology and UFO investigative work, he's also been an occultist since 1960, and has practiced ceremonial magic almost as long. He also spent 2 decades climbing the ranks of the O.T.O. Only to leave the structured organization for a more independent and individualistic path to illumination. He's also the author of Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts and Secret Rituals of the Men In Black. Two books he wrote in the 90's, but have now been reprinted as a single volume by Paranoia Publishing called The Complete Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts. You might have seen Allen and his Secret Cipher featured in the popular paranormal series Hellier, where letters from a man seeking refuge from a group of little green goblins that were emerging from a cave to harass his family- sent the research team down a winding rabbithole of high strangeness. Find Allen's other books, including God Never Does The Same Thing Twice, on his Amazon author page.

Rick Strassman, M.D., is Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. After twenty years of intermission, Strassman was the first person in the United States to undertake human research with psychedelic, hallucinogenic, or entheogenic substances with his research on N,N-dimethyltryptamine. He is also the author of the well-known book DMT: The Spirit Molecule which summarizes his academic research into DMT, and experimental studies regarding the substance, and also includes his own reflections and conclusions based on this scientific research. In his latest book, "DMT and The Soul of Prophecy" (Inner Traditions), he has developed a new top-down model of religious/prophetic experience, termed "theoneurology." This new model provides a theistic complement to that of the reigning materialistic bottom-up neurotheology. He has also just completed a semi-autobiographical novel, Joseph Levy Escapes Death.

It guides the reader on a breathless primer through the very real spiderweb of intelligence agencies, organized crime, high technology and secret sects weaving in and out of nearly every aspect of our lives today.

James DeMeo has been investigating the work of the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich since 1970, and founded the Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory in 1978. With cooperative assistance from a network of professionals and institutes supportive of Wilhelm Reich's original discoveries, OBRL has grown to become one of the world's primary centers for genuine and uncompromised research and educational programs focused upon Orgonomy, the science of orgone (life) energy functions in nature, as developed by Reich in the first half of the 20th Century. James formally studied the Earth, Atmospheric, and Environmental Sciences at Florida International University and the University of Kansas, where he earned his PhD in 1986. At KU, he openly undertook the first graduate-level natural scientific research specifically focused upon Wilhelm Reich's controversial discoveries, subjecting those ideas to rigorous testing, with positive verification of the original findings. DeMeo subsequently undertook drought-related field research in the arid American Southwest, Egypt, Israel, sub-Saharan Eritrea, and Namibia, Africa. His published works include dozens or articles and papers as well as several books, like his newly expanded and revised edition of The Orgone Accumulator Handbook and his most recent release: The Dynamic Ether of Cosmic Space: Correcting A Major Error in Modern Science.

Was looking for a different perspective from my normal "go-to's" for what's "really" going on (for lack of better terms). Stumbled onto your podcast and Holy Info Gold!!! How have I never heard of HC. Can not tell you how much I enjoyed and needed to hear this conversation. I will be highly recommending your podcast to everyone I know, that will listen.

just want to say i love this cast!!! you are very intelligent with your approach on all facets of every topic. Im sure you have already seen this but i came across the documentary called "age of deceit". i gotta tell you, it really sheds light to the clarity of what the phrase "aliens" really means. i think you get a kick out of it. and i hope you see this. just heard the Wann episode and im going to pay for the membership.

The Higherside Chats is the best podcast out there. Greg interviews some amazing guests and I've enjoyed each and every show! Thank you Greg Carlwood for bringing us such a great show!

So is Lon just incapable of concentrating on anything, or is his style meant to prevent those listening to him from concentrating and questioning anything he says? Just a barrage of dispersed data whereby anything can be slipped thru? This is not how the actual teachers ought be.

Poor guy has so much to say and is very endearing. He sort of comes off as an endless string of non sequiturs. Greg did a good job keeping him as close to the rails as he can.

This one really stretches credulity. We've all experienced contagious illnesses. If you've ever made out with a bunch of people at New Year's party you know that you tend to pickup a bug from one of them. Happened to a bunch of people I know.. Ask any teacher what happens to their class if one kid shows up sick. This is why we all stayed home from school when we were sick.

It's so dumb when these leftists think they are challenging "the establishment". All this political correctness and cultural marxism clearly serves big government and big business which is why they fund it. You want to be a real rebel? Be a Christian. Be a patriot. Get married and have kids.
