live by the sword die by the sword. poetic justice.
I've wondered this myself whenever I have opened this thread as of late...Are the guests getting solicited for cash or presented with (shady) business deals and are new members getting constantly solicited for the plus pier and peddled for donations?...Perhaps a little from column a and a little from column d...
I actually listened to the Gary Voorhis. He sounded pretty normal and had no idea who those two bozos were. Once in a while I get nostalgic for that show - love the opening. Never takes more than about 5 minutes of listening to correct that.
It has always amazed me how many guests will show up on the Paracast without checking who the hosts are. I guess most of these people just want to sell their books and dvds and don’t care who or where they do their shilling.
Well, I went on the show. But I did so because I promised I would ages beforehand, and, then, because I didn't grasp how pervasive and full-time this asking for money thing was. I beleived it was a side hustle, not the main show. If I'd know about all that Mr. Torsen stuff, and the court problems and other bad things I'd had have second thoughts. The show seems to go on quite well though.
this post has me asking if Gene Steinberg hit you up for money

Much of it went smoothly, compared to some of the shows I've been on, untill there was a dog barking like crazy in the background, and a woman yelling and screaming, and then the motel staff arrived. He said it was the cleaners. That much I remember..
