Documentarians Christian Falch and Fredrik Horn Akselsen join us to discuss the making of their documentary The Exorcist in the 21st Century.

The Exorcist in the 21st Century takes the viewer into the unknown and sinister world of exorcism in the Catholic Church. We meet one of the few exorcists in Europe, the Vatican approved José Antonio Fortea. He travels around the world on a mission to enlighten the masses about demonic possession. Constanza, a Colombian woman, is desperately looking for Fr. Forteas help. She claims to have been possessed by demons for nearly 15 years and she goes through a ritual of exorcism before she sees the Spanish exorcist as a last hope for spiritual liberation. The film follows both their journeys and gives a unique insight into one of the world most secret and mystical rites – the catholic ritual of exorcism.… Read the rest

DisinfoCast: Got Any Questions for Daniele Bolelli?

Writer/martial artist/college professor Daniele Bolelli will be returning to the DisinfoCast this week to talk about his new book Create Your Own Religion: A How-To Book Without Instructions.

This will be Daniele’s third appearance on the DisinfoCast, (1, 2)but you might have also heard him on The Joe Rogan Experience (1, 2, 3), The Duncan Trussell Family Hour (1, 2, 3), The Adam Carolla Show (1) or his own podcast: The Drunken Taoist. He’s a funny guy with a distinctly skewed take on religion. No starry-eyed Sky Pilot here: In his own words, “Believe it or don’t believe it, do whatever you want. It’s all bullshit.”

Anyway, I’ll be interviewing Daniele on Thursday (April 11, 2013 at 6:30 PM CST) and I’d love to ask him some of your questions. Leave them in the comments section below.… Read the rest

Got Any Questions for Adult Film Star and Sex Lecturer Conner Habib?

Friend of the site and DisinfoCast veteran Conner Habib (episode 20 here) is returning to the podcast tonight to discuss sex, porn and why Western (particularly, American) society is so damned hung up about all of it. Conner, as you probably recall, is an adult film star and writer and was recently the subject of controversy following a school’s decision to un-invite him from a planned presentation.

I’ll be recording the episode tonight at around 6:30 PM CST, and it will go live Thursday morning. If you’ve got any questions for Conner then I’d love to ask them if I have time. Just leave them in the comment section below. If you’re uncomfortable doing so publicly, you may also email me directly at matt AT disinfo Dot com.

Help your middle-aged, vanilla, cisgendered, heterosexual, married white guy host out with questions that reflect a diversity of perspectives. Conner is a very intelligent, fun guest and I want to make sure we get the most out of his time.… Read the rest
