    I find it quite comical. There are no pre-show questions from members nor are there any comments from members after the show was broadcast.

    Do Steinberg and Murphy feel embarassed basically speaking to no one?

    At least Palmer was creative. Keel called him "the man who invented flying saucers." He gave us the Shaver mysteries, Maury Island, and more. Gene gives us pleas for money and observations about Supergirl.

    No matter how bad Gene's grifting gets, guests keep coming on. And if we look back over the just the last 2 years, he's managed to get some well known names. I do believe he will keep the dream alive. He keeps finding guests. Advertisers keep paying. Nothing really, except his laziness and cohost, has actually changed.

    Yet do you see the hottest topics currently in Ufology being discussed on his forum or on his podcasts?...Simple answer is No...

    Every time I check there is basically nothing being discussed there. Occasional dribbles of activity that JRM or GS seem to disrupt with their freak and control freak (respectively) tendencies.

    I am waiting for the following statement on the Paracast. “We have done it! We have banned most of the members. There is no one left who can discuss UFOs or paranormal any longer. Now we just need to get rid of Constance and all that tedious talk about consciousness.”

    I would almost pay for Steinberg to be truthful and discuss how he ruined a perfectly good forum for UFOs and the paranormal.

    I've never understood why Steinbeg has a podcast and forum which is supposed to cover the paranormal field when he clearly has absolutely no interest in it whatsoever.

    He just wants to talk about his favourite movies, comics and TV shows and no longer even bothers with a tenuous connection to start talking about them. Why doesn't he just launch a forum and podcast dedicated to these subjects?

    The only reason I can come up with is that there are a lot of polished broadcasters covering these topics and Steinbeg knows that he doesn't have a hope in hell of duplicating even the small amount of attention he had in the paranormal field. I also suspect his grifting would not get as much of a free pass as it does in the scam laden paranormal cesspit.

    The thing is Steinbeg has absolutely zero self awareness which would contradict these theories but I can't think of any other reasons why he hasn't done it.

    I haven’t even bothered listening for the last two weeks. It used to be amusing in that car crash way, but it has become SO boring. He used to moan about the stalkers. Now its just the J Randy Pedantry Hour. I stopped the Paracast Plus Paypal.q6

    Y'know, I'm glad GS has dialed back the beg emails (so far as I know or can tell) but it does make me wonder just what changed.

    We had months of near daily, sometimes more than daily appeals, with him insisting he was over some daily barrel to pay a motel by 11 a.m. Mountain Time.

    And now, I haven't seen an email in weeks. That's welcome no doubt, but I have to wonder if he's been forced into new honesty, or had new honesty forced upon him, or found a sugar daddy.

    Unless there is a court filing or Paranormal Davy style prank tied to this silence, I figure we'll never know. I just hope he's, against all odds and his known history, not ripping anyone off.

    I hope you are right as well but my fear is that he has:
    1) Managed to hook another large sucker to keep feeding the black hole that his money disappears down (same way as he did with that poor Torsen guy).
    2) Or he is working on some new scheme to raise money. Obviously Gene is not very clever or indeed imaginative so it will take some time and it will be some kind of variation on his usual grift.
    3) Maybe he has conned another landlord and he is enjoying sitting back and living rent free while the landlord has to jump through all the hoops to get him evicted.

    Could be all of the above - I hope not but it seems this is the nature of Schemey and it is hard to imagine it changing.

    It is really hard to imagine the leopard changing his spots at this point.

    My pet theory, probably wrong, is that his kid (Grayson iirc?) took a hand and is throwing them some money but demanding some behavior moderation in return. Problems with this theory, it's unclear if the kid has any money to give, and GS seems the type to always think he knows best so seems unlikely to change to suit someone else. But maybe there was a remote intervention. Or, maybe not.

    my theory is that JRM threatened to quit if he did not dail it down.

    Why is everyone ignoring the obvious? There must have been a large cash infusion from the new Paracast store with all of those very reasonably priced and stylish items. The money must be rolling in.

    Apparently the slave position has been "filled".

    I'm going to guess it was filled by the resident ass licker since he has been doing such a stellar job so far. If he fails to find a guest he can just book himself.
