I spring an entirely unplanned question on fighting philosopher Daniele Bolelli (“On the Warrior’s Path”, “50 Things You’re Not Supposed to Know: Religion”): How can we all strive toward not being assholes? What develops is an interesting conversation on empathy, jealousy, violence, and the philosophical nature of good and evil.

Zero, Jonah and D are members of the New York Initiative, a group of ordinary people dedicated to extraordinary change through community activism, education and intervention. The NYI was one of several groups of “real-life superheroes” featured in the HBO documentary “Superheroes”, but they prefer to be labeled – if at all – as “Extreme Altruists”. Note: There was a little echo in this recording. Efforts have been made to remove it, but some still lingers.

In Case You Missed It: New Episode of DisinfoCast with Guest Brian Wood is Available

dmz-a-coverMost of you probably already know this, but just in case there were a few of you who missed it go up on Friday, there’s a new episode of the DisinfoCast ready to go. My guest was Brian Wood, the author of  several politically charged comic book series including “DMZ”, “The Massive”, and “Channel Zero”. We spent over an hour discussing 9/11, the media, Barack Obama, NDAA, global climate change, and much, much more.  Even if you’re not a comic book fan, I think that you’ll enjoy our talk.

If you’ve not had the pleasure of reading “DMZ” or any of the rest of Brian’s work, then I strongly recommend you give it a chance. “DMZ” is probably one of the best fictional portrayals of the post 9/11 political climate I’ve ever read. It’s a favorite of mine.

PS: True comic book nerds will also know Wood for his work with X-Men, Star Wars, Conan and a bunch of other equally cool stuff.… Read the rest

Matt Nelson once weighed over 400 pounds. Then he got mad, got educated, and did something about it. Tune in for a gimmick and guilt-free discussion about industrial agriculture, poisonous fast food, ignorance and what it took for one man to reclaim his own body.

Video of this interview is available:
