The spread of what became known as Satanic Panic marched blindly forward for over a decade, leaving controversy and conspiracy in its wake. The misguided agents of this panic were key to its contagion, including law enforcement, self-assumed occult experts, Christian therapists, and all manner of opportunists motivated by money and attention. But this panic also had its prehistory and we’ll be exploring that along with the Panic’s ties to urban legend, the appeal of rumors, the rise of the Religious Right, heavy metal’s flirtation with the Devil, the unwanted aid of TV talk shows and more. Think of it as herd mentality under an unforgiving microscope.

The weakness of the West is in both its failure to understand the threat of a megalomaniacal religion and allowing the infiltration of that threat to spread unabated. Through inaction and needless guilt, many leaders of the Western World have permitted disorder and death within their nations in the name of political correctness. But, the time has come to put away tolerance and start recognizing the aims of Islam and its continued war against the West. To that effect, we will examine this so-called “religion of peace” through its religious texts and resultant acts, as well as Sharia law, the recent migrant crisis, conspiring liberals and feminists, the question of Muslim moderates and more.

There was a time when the term feminism meant social equality between the genders. There was also a time when the streets were safe, the air was clean, and livable wages were commonplace. Sadly, those days are long gone. But join us as we sift through the wreckage of the women’s movement with an emphasis on its third wave phase and all of its infighting, contradictions, false conclusions, hysteria, fabrications, and the various thin-skinned reactions that come to loosely define this anything-goes collective.

It has been an eternal constant for man to strive for dominance over his own. From our earliest days, many of us discover ways to best our competitors and establish ourselves to a position of power. Whether it’s on the playground, in the business world, or on the field of battle, being on top is hard-wired into most of us. However, others might not be so motivated or capable. Thus, the division between master and slave comes into play, whether through natural or contrived means. And we’ll be discussing this dynamic as we unapologetically dive into the nature of human slavery, its widespread history and its continued practice.

Throughout recorded history, man has sought to improve himself by various means, including technological, financial, cooperative, and experiential. Much of this improvement is often short-term and limited to a single generation. But, what if you want to give your future offspring a leg up on survival and personal achievement? Could you take on the mantle of mythological gods and remake man in your own image? And not only could you, but would you? In this episode, we examine the controversial practice of eugenics, its advances, its past abuses, and its useful applications in the modern world. We’ll also look at the wide-ranging implications of this scientific endeavor and how eugenics has come to be defined over time.

The practice of assuming yourself special will ultimately lead you to the perception that, in some universal sense, you matter. Not just to your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers, but in the grand scheme of things. Many of us grow out of such thinking but some don’t. And we’ll be discussing such imagined significance this episode as we put the spotlight on a modern example of note. We begin with a brief history of racial dissent in America, including related riots of the 20th century. We then expose the media manipulation of race-oriented events and the defense of minority crime, leading into the main talk on Black Lives Matter, its brief history, protest behavior, criminal inspirations, silencing techniques and, lastly, the question of BLM as a terrorist group.

In this episode, we tear apart the social invention of hate speech, beginning with a brief history of free speech, including landmark court cases, cultural influences, speech on campus, and more. Later in the program, we’ll hear from a man in Canada accused of violating that nation’s hate propaganda law and the outcome of his trial. And finally, we’ll end with some words from an author of controversy in the Islamic world and his crucial message on the future of speech in the West.

In this episode, we explore the culture of offendedness, why they’re offended, and what that means to the rest of us. Later in the program, we’ll speak with a former Playboy executive regarding that publication’s recent move to eliminate nudity and why that might be. Then, we’ll conclude with some thoughts on censorship from a now deceased rock musician and iconoclast, one who often had the final word on why free speech matters more than hurt feelings.

In this episode, we take on the equality myth in historical, literary, and contemporary contexts. Later in the program, we’ll speak to a mathematician on the subject of “equality in math” and how it may or may not extend to human equality. Next, the Shame Chamber will bring us a defendant from the Great White North and its effects on children. And, then, we’ll conclude with a parable from a certain 19th century German philosopher who certainly had much to say on the matter.
