123 - The Aetherius Society and Britain's vilest troll Old Holborn
The YouTube video I refer to during the comments is here: http://youtu.be/_se8c-wN35M
The Aetherius Society is one of my favourite small scale religions. Mark Bennet is their representative. They are often described as one of the world's first UFO religions. Their website is here: http://www.aetherius.org
The YouTube video I refer to in the interview, and borrow a few clips from, is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GS4UEpzlAyM
Also worth a look is this excellent Jon Ronson piece from his old and incredibly underrated TV show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWjl5CDk2vs
As a side note I was delighted to discover the entire series has been posted up there, apparently by World Of Wonder, the production company that made it. In the unlikely event they read this, do another series! I'll present it if Mr Ronson's too expensive these days. Probably my favourite TV show ever.
Also, it's interesting to note that since this interview evidence has emerged that Jesus might have been clean shaven: http://www.catholic.org/news/international/europe/story.php?id=57176
We cover the sad death of a woman in the UK who posted on twitter under the name of @sweeptyface. A cache of her tweets was sent to me by a blog reader, it's here: http://greptweet.com/u/sweepyface/sweepyface.txt

Also, I've started doing a podcast with my mate Tom Binns. He's an award winning comedian who regularly features on the television. His live stand up act is phenomenal. If you like the sound of it and want to know more, go to his website: http://www.tombinns.com/
As it's a significant edition of the podcast, episode 123, the music was specially recorded this week by The Decedent Marsupials. They are the Discordian members of @QuislingMeet and @Mirrorkill
The session was a jolly time had by all, I even had a little go on the bongos at one point.
