Do Wolves eat people? It'd be real handy if you could put an answer to that question in the comments section of the above Disinfo article.
The fuller text of this essay is on the Disinfo.com website. You can find it by typing "The Global Awakening" into google, it's on the first page of that search at the moment. It got re-tweeted almost 100 times and got around 200 "likes" on it. It's my attempt at putting a positive spin on a meme that has been around for some time.
If people like it I might try and do another in a month or so, if not we'll just crack on with the archive.
Already got some very interesting people who are interested in being interviewed on this podcast as a stand alone piece. Won't happen until the new year.

It's early days cult members, I'm still learning this new form but I think I'm starting to get an idea of how cool it could be.
I interviewed Phil Zimbardo a while back, he's the author of the Stanford Prison Experiment. I reckon it'll have to go up on the newer version of The Cult Of Nick as the audioboo ones are pretty hard going as a listen.
Apes have a mid-life crisis, apparently...
Hope you enjoy them.
This is an old story but it speaks to the current tensions in middle east.
I suggest you check this one out in particular, it's going to be big over the next few months.
A dissapointing confession of overt bias from the BBC's Andrew Maxwell.
Listeners who remember my London based news talk show will remember this as one of my more "controversial" opinions. I've still never met a politician I wanted to vote for. I've voted once, for Tony Blair, and look how that all turned out. The above link takes you through to a debate on this idea but from an American perspective.
No, I am not nor ever have been a member of anonymous. There's an ideological link between Discordianism and their avowed philosophy but there the connection ends. The Anonymous collective suffers from all the inherent problems inflicted upon the individual by 'group think', a cancer of the old age.
More than anything this article is the basis for my follow up essay to "The Global Awakening" which I am currently working on. At the moment it is titled: "The Apocalypse". It'll feature first on Disinfo but it'll take a while to finish.
This is a big essay designed to translate quite an obscure occult concept into more everyday language. It went "viral" once published and continues to gather an audience. To date I think it's my best work.
Actually, scrap that, there's a wicked article I wrote about belly button rings once...
This week's offering to The Cult Of Nick features two interviews with Alan Moore. Both were recorded on the same day but intended to be broadcast seperately.
The first is about comic books and the occult, the second is about the reasons why Mr Moore hates film conversions of his work. If I'm being honest here the stuff where we get into occultism involves me feigning ignorance a little. I'd gotten into it by now and was already telling people I was a Discordian High Priest . However, it seemed like a better idea to step back and let a real expert do the talking.
If this podcast is too long do message me about it on twitter: @nickmargerrison
Next week I'm going to do entirely original content, as an experiment. Regardless of if we lose half our audience or double it as a result it'll be back to the archive the week after as I've got lots of bits and bobs I wanna stick up here.
Thanks as always for downloading.
C u next Tuesday!
 Discordianism is a joke religion. It's therefore entirely compatible with any religious faith you may already have, as long as your God has a sense of humour. It's withoutquestion the over arching theological inspiration for this podcast. The further you go with it the more you will start to amuse yourself by telling people you are a Discordian. Google it if you want to find out more. Then follow my series of essays on the subject, to be found on the Disinfo website.
Two interviews with Kevin Warwick. He doesn't call himself a "transhumanist" but that's the term you need to google really. This podcast deals mainly with the notion that people are on the verge of being able to fuse themselves with kinetic technologies. Kevin is a really genuine bloke and I enjoyed meeting him in person for the TV show we did, "Esoteria". I discovered today that you can buy an audio version of it for £6 on iTunes. F. that, I'll copy you it for free if you really wanna watch it. No one's givnig me any of that £6 I'll tell you that much.
Anyway, in this podcast I mention an article I wrote recently for www.disinfo.com which has gathered its own momentum since I recorded this. I'll focus on it a little more next week.
In the meantime I am find-able on www.twitter.com/nickmargerrison.
Hope you enjoy the podcast.
