Also, as a bonus, your ability to participate in the forums will continue beyond the life of your THC+ membership.

    Enjoy the upgrade!

    Hello TCH fam!
    Been listening for a couple months. Still about 2 years back, thought it about time to become a Plus-member. It's so obvious how much love and care Greg puts into this cast. IMO this is the best of the best of fringe-subject podcasts. I've sampled many, unsubscribed from most.

    Greg does too good of a job with the free hour! You don’t actually realize what you are missing until you take that plunge.

    I listened to his entire available free catalogue and a couple of months ago signed on to Plus. I’m listening back through them all again and it is legitimately like hearing an entirely new podcast.

    Are you listening to every one, or do you cherry pick? There are so many, I've started cherry picking. Personally I'm more into paranormal and Illuminati stuff.

    I listen to them all..
    ..but some while playing video games.

    I don’t have a favorite genre, I think that I am a generalist when it comes to conspiracy. Question every damn thing.

    Though I have to say that I prefer the more exotic topics that have me questioning my paradigm.

    I already understand that politicians are corrupt. I don’t blink an eye at the fact that the central banking system is intentionally oppressing the populace.

    But when I hear some shit like the moon is projecting reality down upon the planet, or that CERN and the Mandela Effect is the reason why I remember losing my virginity at 15 but everyone else tells me that it wasn’t until 17...when I hear that kind of episode..I put down Icewind Dale and I listen.

    Icewind Dale, old school, nice. I'm a gamer from way back in the 80s.

    I started with the Aquarius.

    Some of my fondest memories were with that strange little system.

    I recently bought one. Got all nostalgic for a few days.

    I have had the gaming bug since I was 5. Passed it on to my own son.

    Escapism at its best. That and books. I have been denying this culturally accepted, objective perception of reality almost my entire life.

    Hell yeah! Sears Pong, then Atari, VIC-20, Commodore 64, Comic books, sci-fi/fantasy, D&D, anime.. etc. I'm all about subjective reality. Very little of our reality is truly objective.

    Wolverine. X-Force.

    Frank Herbert. Phillip Jose Farmer. Margret Weiss and Tracy Hickman.

    Basic D&D up to 4th edition...which killed the buzz for me.

    Ghost in the Machine. Perfect Blue.

    Yeah, looks like we may have moved across a fairly parallel path my friend.
