38) Silk Road

2021-04-2701:07:37

In 2011 the Silk Road paved the way for selling drugs on the dark web. Here, anyone anywhere could buy any drugs they wanted safely and anonymously. What looked like an innocent libertarian marketplace for users had a dark underbelly. Eileen Ormsby, journalist and author of 8 books covering the dark web came on the show to discuss what was the Silk Road. Ormsby covered everything from law enforcement, to Dread Pirate Roberts, and even the Mongoose.

36) Getting Tickets

2021-04-1301:03:26

Do you ever feel scammed when purchasing tickets to a live event? Companies like Ticketmaster, StubHub, TicketNetwork, and others are being used to trick customers into buying higher ticket prices with added-on fees. Some companies are even using entirely fake websites to trick fans into thinking they're buying tickets from the official venue, when in fact they're purchasing from an entirely different website. Engagement reporter Byard Duncan tells me the ins and outs behind this secondary ticket market.  Article - https://revealnews.org/article/how-is-this-legal/ Reveal Podcast - https://revealnews.org/podcast/the-ticket-trap/ The Way Podcast - PodcastTheWay.com - Twitter - @podcasttheway - Instagram - @podcasttheway As always thank you Don Grant for the Intro and Outro.

33) The Hatless Hacker

33) The Hatless Hacker

2021-03-2301:30:21

The notorious first hacker sent to prison in Uruguay, Alberto Daniel Hill, sat down with me to explain his innocence. Hill's story began when he hacked into a hospital's computer system to access his girlfriend's medical record for her and from there, things exponentially escalated. What Alberto thought would be a kind warning to the hospital that their system was flawed and could make them very vulnerable to dangerous attacks, turned into him being labeled a "very dangerous" and "high-level threat" by authorities. In the end, the same hospital that Hill tried warning, was hacked by actual dangerous criminals who exploited the hospital's private information for monetary gain. Hill claims he had to go through many hardships such as dealing with criminals, drug overdose, and being blackmailed all because he tried warning them of their fate.

If someone walked into a hospital on crutches to receive treatment for a broken foot, the hospital would treat the broken foot, not take away the crutch. Dr. Adi Jaffe, a mental health, addiction, and stigma professional uses this analogy to describe how America views and treats addiction. Dr. Jaffe believes the root cause of addiction, the crutch, is mental health and it is the mind that needs healing. Rather too often people are labeled and shamed for their mental health struggles and default of substance abuse. Dr. Jaffe makes the point that in order to remedy this 40-60% relapse rate (within a year) of individuals with substance abuse problems, people truly need to practice moderation and seeking help for mental health issues.

31) Turning Left

2021-03-0901:26:02

Let's get political! I talked with the hosts of the "Green and Red Podcast"; Professor Robert Buzzanco and Activist Scott Parkin. Bob (Robert) is a self-proclaimed Socialist. He commonly writes and talks about the Vietnam War era and radical social movements among other related things. Scott is a self-proclaimed Anarchist who has been a coordinator and organizer in hundreds of justice movements. Fun fact, as a result he's been arrested roughly 15 times! In this episode, we looked at some solutions to the problems facing America. We addressed the Texas power situation, politicians, BLM, the struggle among classes, and much more.   To hear more about them go to https://greenandredpodcast.org/  As always thank you Don Grant for the Intro and Outro.

30) Plastic Everywhere

30) Plastic Everywhere

2021-03-0257:58

This episode is dedicated to plastic and its effects on the environment. I sat down with Alexis Goldsmith: National Organizing Director for Beyond Plastic. Beyond Plastic was founded by Judith Enck; a Regional EPA Administrator under President Obama. It's a nonprofit dedicated to eliminating single-use plastic and changing the way we use plastic entirely. We talked about the plastic creation process, its effect on the environment, and how common microplastic is (we eat a credit card worth a week!). She brought facts and expertise to talk about all that is plastic and its detrimental impact. *Footnote from Alexis: "At around 9:30, I say that Methane is 89 times more potent than Carbon. It's actually 30x, so I misspoke. The 89 number is also repeated at 11:49."   Beyond Plastic - https://www.beyondplastics.org/  The Way Podcast - Website - Twitter - Instagram  Introduction guitar taken and copied from Aiden Ayers at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UiB9FMOP5s  Intro and Outro voiceover by - https://threeinterestingthings.captivate.fm
29) Waiting For Methadone

29) Waiting For Methadone

2021-02-2301:04:57

Helen Redmond went to six countries to create "Liquid Handcuffs: A Documentary to Free Methadone". She created this film to address the struggles many people face when trying to get the medication they need; Methadone. Methadone is, to put it simply, a medication used to treat patients battling addiction by reducing the pleasure experienced from taking opioids, heroin, or other addictive drugs. This severely reduces the urge to take whatever the addictive drug is. With less of an urge to take addictive drugs, it's no wonder why the number of people overdosing and addiction rates fall by nearly half in locations it's accessible. Yet, there are so many obstacles for patients to jump through in order to get their treatment. In this episode, we discussed everything related to Methadone, from what it is, to its impact, to how we can improve its accessibility.  Website - https://www.liquidhandcuffsdoc.com/ The Way Podcast - Twitter - Instagram Introduction guitar taken and copied from Aiden Ayers at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UiB9FMOP5s Intro/Outro Voiceover by - https://threeinterestingthings.captivate.fm
Continuing the professional music theme, I had a great time talking with Slavic Livins during this episode. After immigrating as a child from the Soviet Union to America, Slavic grew an admiration for music. In particular, with the technical side of the sound and frequencies. Through this appreciation of tones and pitches, Slavic Livins became platinum-certified and helped create music for artists like G Herbo, Chief Keef, Snoop Dogg, Jeremih, T-Pain, and John Legend. He's the guy to make sure the vocals come out clear, concise, and lively by using the right microphones, adjusting the studios, and Engineering/Mixing/Composing/Mastering/Producing in any way necessary. To build on top of this already successful career, in 2007 he took his developed experiences and knowledge and started his own company; Chicago Audio Mastering. Located in Chicago, his mastering services can also be accessed anywhere via the internet. I was sent this by Slavic after the show. It's a very interesting read! "Alpha waves in the human brain are between 6 and 8 Hertz. The wave frequency of the human cavity resonates between 6 and 8 Hertz. All biological systems operate in the same frequency range. The human brain’s alpha waves function in this range and the electrical resonance of the earth is between 6 and 8 Hertz. This, our entire biological system - the brain and the earth itself - work on the same frequencies. If we can control that resonate system electronically, we can directly control the entire mental system of humankind."

Martyn Clark has worked with senior executives, across many of the largest corporations: Citizens, Jones Lang Lasalle, Sodexo, Royal Bank of Scotland, Zurich Insurance, Santander, Accenture, Ernst & Young, Johnson & Johnson. What he saw was a harsh reality: that the legal foundations of our organizations are riddled with greed and self-interest, and as a result, these organizations often neglect the needs of employees and people. In response, Martyn wrote a book on the topic: Love Incorporated. In this episode, we discuss what's wrong with how corporations operate, along with what changes need to be put in place in the interest of people.

Christina Hoag has a long history in the world of Journalism. While traveling the world, she ended up living in Venezuela and was lucky enough to become one of the few journalists present during the 2002 Venezuelan coup. This is especially special when you realize the airports were closed down during this less than a week ordeal. Chavez was temporarily overthrown and this reporter has the inside scoop of what actually happened in Venezuela leading up to this event.  *Footnote from Christina: “I misstated the year of Hugo Chavez’s death in the podcast. I checked afterward and he died in 2013.” **Footnote from a listener: It was never officially confirmed what side the snipers were a part of.
