We've about had it with the cabin fever and now we've got the ramblin' fever. So let's pour a couple of drinks and enjoy some saloon time on this fine desert night. Maybe get a beer back, too. And six more for the road. Our Phoenix friend Jason P. Woodbury joins us at the bar.

The Contactee Experience: The UFO Phenomenon As Examined by Carl Jung and Jacques Valée (with Andy from Caïna)
*CW: discussions of psychological trauma, sexual assault, suicide, depression, and anxiety* Welcome to the first episode of the new series ‘Inner Experience’ from Acid Horizon! A show about exploring our consciousness, the weird, the eerie, and the beyond. For this episode, Craig, Will, and Adam are joined by Andy (@cainalikehyena), the Black Metal and Industrial maestro behind Caїna and Ritual Object, to discuss his 'inner experience' of UFOs and of communion with a liminal unknown. As conceptual tools to guide us on our way, we read Carl Jung’s 1959 Text Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies as well as Jacques Vallée’s work on the cybernetics of the UFO phenomenon as a behavioural ‘control system’ in his text Dimensions. We also discuss H.G. Wells, Leibniz, Aleister Crowley, Hegel, Whitley Strieber, and the intersection of the early US Labor Movement and alien contact.  Link's to Andy's music: https://cainaband.bandcamp.com/album/take-me-away-from-all-this-death https://apocalypticwitchcraft.bandcamp.com/ https://ritualobject.bandcamp.com/ Contribute to Acid Horizon: https://www.patreon.com/acidhorizonpodcast Subscribe to us on Apple Podcasts: https://tinyurl.com/169wvvhi  Happy Hour at Hippel's (Adam’s blog): https://happyhourathippels.wordpress.com New Revolts (Matt’s Blog): https://newrevolts.com/ ​Revolting Bodies (Will's Blog): https://revoltingbodies.com ​Split Infinities (Craig’s Substack): https://splitinfinities.substack.com/ ​Music: https://sereptie.bandcamp.com/ ​Merch Store: http://www.crit-drip.com

BattleBots S5E11 Recap (With HiJinx Captain Jen Herchenroeder!)
This week on the podcast, we kick off the Round of 32 with HiJinx captain Jen Herchenroeder. It’s been nearly exactly one year since we last had Jen on the show, back when HiJinx was still the best-kept secret in the BattleBots builder community. We heard some *WILD* rumors about the design, and were delighted when we finally got to see it—scary, short, wide, neon, and owl-inspired. We catch up with Jen to get her reflections on the 2020 season, and her plans for 2021.

Episode 92: Glitch in the Matrix: A Conversation with Rodney Ascher
With his latest film (http://www.aglitchinthematrixfilm.com), a meditation on what it means to believe we live in a computer simulation, Rodney Ascher has once again placed himself among the most innovative and visionary filmmakers working in the documentary form today. While the "Simulation Hypothesis" has been a hot topic ever since The Matrix came out in 1997, it is Ascher's ability to suspend judgement, training his camera on the experience of believers rather than the value of their beliefs, that makes A Glitch in the Matrix such a unique and significant exploration, a strange work of "phantom phenomenology." Weird Studies listeners will recall that Phil and JF devoted an episode to Ascher's films -- most notably Room 237 and The Nightmare -- back in the early days of the podcast. In this episode, Rodney Ascher joins them to discuss his cinematic vision, his take on the weird, and his thoughts on what is real and why it matters.

Episode Eighty Four - All She Did Was Ask A Question
“Have you ever wondered if this is actually the truth?” Such a simple question. Something that one would think might be a natural question when a person calls their doctrine “The Truth”. This question was the end of a relationship, and just a small part of a larger story that involved so much change and some moments of pure heartbreak. The song that Malina chose to represent her story is Wide Open Spaces by Dixie Chicks.

Episode 121: "Awkward Armor" ft. Pynk Spots
In this episode of Coffee with Comrades, I am joined by Nic, host of our Channel Zero Network sister-show, Pynk Spots, to chat about managing shyness and introversion in media work, teaching, and community-organizing.   This wide-ranging conversation covers it all: prepping for public speaking, decentering yourself at rallies and demonstrations, figuring out how to cope with introversion, mitigating awkward situations, commiserating over embarrassing moments, etc. The fist half of our dialogue covers tips and tricks. The second chunk deals with how to apply these lessons to organizing in your own community, whether you're doing community gardening or engaging in militant direct action. * Follow Pynk Spots on Twitter and Instagram and subscribe to their YouTube channel!
