56. Arthur Young, Pseudoscience, and the Cult of UFO Twitter

A conversation with freelance Twitter philosopher Tom Mellett

Tom Mellett is a retired high school teacher of math and physics who delights in trolling UFO Twitter and Facebook because their emotional maturity is at a 9th grade level (as he puts it). He is also a cat butler in Los Angeles. We got on the phone after the Failed State Update feature "The New Intergalactic Cold War" a (quite brief) firestorm on Twitter last week. Fortunately, we recorded the conversation, because it really is podcast gold.

On this episode of Failed State Update Tom discusses the philosopher/engineer Arthur M. Young, parascyhologist (and frequent beneficiary of government contracts) Hal Puthoff, and the very nature of knowledge itself. Be sure to follow Tom on Twitter for more gems like this.
