    Love this right here. Griftberg and his li'l buddy find a sucker to work for free and he manages to find a guest with the most unsavory past you would care to imagine. Then the Randallbot suggests that the guest should have a chance to air his side of the story. Fast forward…

    That booker is long gone like a turkey in the straw. Now they want someone to administer magic smelling shots to their moribund guest list--decrepit old UFO conference buzzards, never-was cranks, and vanity press authors--in exchange for a valuable "Pair o' Dupes Plus" membership.

    Keep in mind his NAZI guest was responsible for the Cicero riots.

    Oh man that "air his side of the story" bit from J. Randall Murphy... that was I think the one moment where I went from just having contempt for J. Randall Murphy, or being baffled by him, to honestly in that instant wanting to hit him over the head to try to knock some sense into him. Not that I ever would hit him, and not that it appears any sense will ever find its way into that noggin of his, but this was beyond the last straw for me, so far as that clown goes.

    on June 23rd Gene has on the NAZI that no one bothered to vet.
    on July 16th TDSR the guest coordinator logs off. one wonders if TRSR resigned after the NAZI debacle.
    so yeah ... TDSR is no longer the guest coordinator...

    How could Gene and co not do some homework on that Nazi douche before having him on.

    Gene is lazy. Randall was too busy smelling his own farts to keep an eye on the job Gene delegated to him and he delegated to Apologist #2. It's how shit happens on the Parasite.

    I just ventured a look at recent guests. One in particular, Jeff Belanger, actually rates a Wikipedia page. However--and I have never, ever seen this--the page is almost entirely a complete howler: It is a laughfest of snark which seems entirely apprapro for this lazy huckster. I can't imagine what it must have been like to suffer through a podcast with this honyock.

    Belanger actually seems to be a decent guy as I have followed him since the late 90s. He seems to be really into telling ghost stories and what he calls "legend tripping" which is just a another name for doing non serious ghost hunting (is there any other kind). He does deal a lot in bullshit but that is part of the art of telling exciting ghost stories because in real life (assuming there is an actual phenomenon) not much actually happens - you don't get walls bleeding or headless horsemen attacking you. Not sure what he is doing on the scamcast though.

    Is that website inaccessible to you somehow?

    I don't understand..all you have to do is go and look.
    something I rarely do.
    unless the grift starts again. unless they have a guest on who is beyond parody..
    I really have no interest in what they do.

    Heh. I went over there after that brief exchange above, a few weeks ago. Tumbleweeds. Cobwebs. Pompous blather from Randall. That guy can waste more electrons saying nothing of value than anyone I can think of. It's amazing. I suppose one could call it a talent. I won't.

    Steinberg's an old man and old men get real tired. I suspect he hasn't the energy and I suspect his eager sycophant is looking to pick up the pieces when old Gene trundles his sorry self off to the sunset. But of course, old men are stubborn, too. There's a fairly good chance the whole thing will just crumble to dust before the Randallbot can get his greasy hands on it.

    Maybe Randall will take over. Imagine him there flogging a dead horse and claiming that membership will skyrocket any minute now. Maybe Randall will move into the famed hotel room with Barb and Teddy Bear even.

    I would rather see Randall take over and keep all that older stuff on the web than to see it just disappear as so many other good things have. From a few years ago back to the beginning, there is an awful lot of useful and interesting material in the forum. After Gene started spending a lot of time "editing" the discussions, not so much. The, um, signal to noise ratio just went to shit. The old discussions are still very interesting and should be preserved. There would be no point in trying to revive the forum without completely new ownership by someone competent and reliable. Probably the best thing would be for it to be kept running as an archive, with no one being able to log in. Leaving the threads intact would be key.

    I have thought about going in and trying to save some of my favorites before it all disappears, but I also have been thinking I need to clean out the gutters on the house.

    The only shows worth keeping from the Paracast are the David Biedny years and some of the Chris O’Brien episodes. The rest of it could be wiped clean without anyone missing those episodes.
