    Power of Perception writers with Dylan Callens

    in Spirituality

    Dylan Callens came up with the core idea for Operation Cosmic Teapot
    while in university.  Back then, he was writing a terrible, terrible
    book with no discernible plot and characters that were flatter than
    stick figures on a piece of paper.  From that travesty; however, the
    image of God being unable to perform his duties as a result of too much
    paperwork, stuck in his mind.  Years later, he imagined Nietzsche as
    God's boss.  Of course, Nietzsche desperately wanted to fire God because
    of a lifelong grudge.

    Only six years after that kernal, the book was popped.  Sure, it could
    have been done in a year or two, but he is pretty lazy.  The point is,
    Operation Cosmic Teapot was done.  Finally.

    Other than that, Dylan grew up in Delhi, Ontario.  From a young age, he
    was always interested in writing; however, in high school, his interests
    were focused more towards music.  He dreamed of being famous in a heavy
    metal band named Nothing Sacred.  Unfortunately, the band wasn't all
    that good, so fame and fortune never transpired.

    Afterwards, Dylan moved to Sudbury, Ontario to attend Laurentian
    University.  While attending, he wrote for the university paper, Lambda,
    as a columnist, then news editor.  He watched as the paper fell to shit
    due to the brilliant decisions of an idiot edit-in-chief (not Norm, the
    other guy!).  Because of that, he left to become the Program Director at
    CKLU radio.  Somewhere in there, Dylan was able to graduate with a
    degree in English and philosophy.

    With such a heavy demand for philosophers in the workplace, Dylan
    decided to attend teacher's college.  He found a job teaching in
    Sudbury, where he continues to live with his family

    Impressed by Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors' 8-0 start? Pff... that's nothing compared to some of the most historically dominant starts ever.

    in Politics

    Conventional wisdom is that Sanders' bid for the Democratic nomination will end as a tempest in a teapot. Those on the far left argue it will harm the effort to foment a real democratic revolution by reinforcing the myth that voters must support one of the Duopoly candidates backed by corporate patrons in order to win. They pounce on positions that show willingness to compromise to make the claim that he is not serious about change anyway.

    Others see in his campaign evidence of a genuine revolt against the plutocracy. While those who are objective will concede that he is not really going to lead the US directly to where it needs to go to become a democracy and a responsible player on the world stage, the very fact of his popularity will not only promote the discussion needed to make Americans realize what needs to be done, but help build the grassroots organization necessary to do it. In addition to starting a conversation about the real roots of inequality and falling standards of living in the US, he is promoting specific actions to address the corrupting influence of money in politics, which he has been working on actively as a member of the Senate.

    Joining the show in this discussion is Jerry Ashton, an Occupy activist and Huffington Post blogger who was an early promoter of Sanders and is now very involved in trying to convince Americans that the Sanders campaign is viable and utterly urgent. 

    This show will be rebroadcast on August 29` at 2 PM PST/ 5 PM EST on the Star Com Radio Network.

    Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to explain the true costs of allowing corporate control of the US government.

    in Basketball

    The Over and Back Classic NBA podcast concludes its NBA Finals Game 7s series with part eight, looking at the top two NBA Finals Game 7s of all time: Boston Celtics vs. St. Louis Hawks from 1957 and the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Detroit Pistons from 1988.

    Topics discussed include the beginning of the Boston Celtics dynasty, Bill Russell's rookie year (though he wasn't the Rookie of the Year, another Celtic took that spot!), a sub-standard Hawks regular season followed by a strong playoff showing, the thrilling double overtime game and the improbable final play attempt that would've gone down in history had it worked.

    Lastly, we discuss one of the most famous games in modern NBA history: Lakers vs. Pistons from the 1988 NBA Finals. Topics on this game include the Lakers looking for their first back-to-back titles since 1969, "Big Game" James Worthy's triple-double, Magic Johnson's reliability and Joe Dumars rising to the occasion as a result of Isiah Thomas' sprained ankle.

    Dawkins and Muslims

    in Atheism

    In this re-airing, blogger Sacerdotus addresses the recent racist and hateful remarks made by so-called "New Atheism" personality, Richard Dawkins.  Richard Dawkins is known for his attention garnering antics by using provocative statements and claims in order to anger others.  He has done it again with Muslims.  Sacerdotus gives his thoughts on the issue and explains why Dawkins hurts the atheism movement and those atheists who adopt his views only make fools of themselves.  He also speaks a bit on "Russell's Teapot" which is a thought experiment often cited by atheists to counter theist claims of an invisible God.
