Jerocktober: The Jereckoning

Well, folks, it’s here. The month you cannot, for the life of you, get rid of me. I will keep this thread pinned to the top of the blog and update it with airdates and direct links of media appearances as I am alerted to them. I had joked on Twitter than if you want to get rid of me, it’s simple: buy my book and I’ll stop singing for my supper. But I’ve decided to go another way. The opposite way, in fact. Dinner theater.

I keep seeing all of these new and intriguing paranormal podcasts sprouting up. I am making it my mission to get on as many of them as possible to infect the next generation of researchers and, more importantly, thinkers–and most importantly, experiencers–with my *cough-cough* wisdom. By the end of this month you will know that I have an unprecedented-for-me opportunity to bask in the glow of a large audience, which means more fame, which means I finally have a shot at actually influencing this crazy, searching, often ironically bland, space where we ponder…uh… space. Ufology. And other areas, but mainly there.

I have one shot at this. I’m going all in. It’s not enough to whine about how things suck, you have to change them. Change them starting with you and spill out. Since speaking carefully from the heart isn’t real work, you won’t have to fret over success or failure. You’ll just do what comes naturally.

As for me I will be doing that on numerous shows and on my next venture, promoting the best new voices I can find and angles little-drawn or paid attention. Different questions. Drilling down into high strangeness (or perhaps natural) phenomena. And also–importantly–putting a critical eye to the cultural lens through which these subjects refract. Where there is racism, sexism, corporate greed, military greed, cottage industry greed, New Age woo, or scientific arrogance and slow-walking to discoveries already made clouding the lens, it’s time to click on the defogger.

Let’s go!

90-Minute Speaker Roundtable
where we talk of what we learned this weekend
and take your questions!

Will You Be There?

It’s free. No signing up or signing in. No finding your email has been subscribed to a newsletter you never wanted. No catch at all. Just you showing up. And us having a conversation about life, the universe and no-thing.

Will you be there?

Please tell a friend. Or two, or five. Usually deep issues of consciousness are hashed out by the intelligentsia at universities and in other scholarly circles. Or for the rest of us, it’s hot garbage at a New Age convention. Well, not this first weekend in June. This first weekend in June, we will be hearing from people who represent various elephants in the room. Taboo topics. The ones ignored in the scholarly circles and made a shallow spectacle of by the New Age crowd.

It’s up to you to discover how important this is. Showing up means we will likely keep it going. Not means definitely not. For those of you who have long complained–and rightly so–about the lack of quality conferences regarding these topics close to you, this is for you. I’ll be streaming the Youtube feed right here, at, at, and on Twitter. It will also stream via Facebook Live all over the place there, and on my Twitch channel that I set up just for this event. If one gamer accidentally watches it there, I’ll be happy. Then s/he can get back to narrating Call of Duty play-throughs or whatever it is the kids are doing these days.

What are YOU doing these days?

Will you be there?
