BEST OF TMI 01/28/2022 – Is It Really Community vs. “Freedom”?, World War III – Your Table is Ready, and There is No Absolute “Time”, More


Society seems pretty well torn in two, and the odd thing about it is that there appears to be mostly a conflict between those who want to focus on building and uplifting community between each other and those who prize, above all else, what they have been TOLD it means to be “free”. We examine this fundamental breakdown in communication to hopefully better prepare you to help heal the rifts so we can focus on the billionocracy that is keeping us ALL down.

Then, reports from Ukraine not the only things that are echoing the beginnings of historic, major wars. The fact that there are multiple major places of unrest boiling up simultaneously calls back to how wars like World War I, World War II and other major wars began. We discuss.

Finally, we examine the most current understandings of the nature of time itself, which may surprise you. After all, it has been completely proven that the closer you get to the surface of the Earth, the SLOWER time moves. Can there be any absolute notion of time when it bends depending on your location?

TMI 09/10/2021 – BEST OF: Nine Terrifying Words, Alabama’s Coal Strike and the History Behind Leaving Afghanistan

With your host down for the count with COVID-19, please enjoy a repeat of last week’s episode of TMI:

Ronald Reagan gave us his “nine most terrifying words in the english language” 40 years ago – we examine how this devious concept has insidiously corrupted our ability to function as a government, even when it comes to responding to immediate threats like Hurricane Ida.

Then, we talk about the strike down in Alabama by miners of Warrior Met Coal, and the similarities to some historically violent coal strikes that rocked the USA roughly 100 years ago. With luck, maybe we can protect workers’ rights without so much bloodshed this time.

Finally, we look at the completion of the USA’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, and how it has been long overdue. All this and more on this BEST OF  TMI with Aldous Tyler for Friday, Sepetmber 10, 2021 – listen in for YOUR Cure for the Common Media.

Best of TMI Billionaires Climate Episode Migration WSUM

TMI 08/20/2021 – Best of TMI 2020

Three favorite segments from TMI 2020:

You’ve heard how birds and other animals migrate because of climate, but what about people? We look into how the current rise of ocean levels, persistence of horrific wildfires and battering by terrible storms will be shaping where people choose to live – if they CAN choose to.

Then, billionaires get compared to a lot of naturally occurring niches in the ecosystem: predators, sure or parasites, even. However, I make the case that they are far less natural, as they get their outrageous wealth by essentially consuming their fellow human beings. That makes them cannibals.

Finally, we take a look NOT the solar year we call 2020, but the “cosmic year” – or how long it takes us to orbit around the center of our galaxy, and how things weren’t all that different the last time we were in this position, galactically.

TMI 08/06/2021 – A Tribute to the Passing of Peter Conover, Musician, Pagan, Friend; BEST OF: The Ethics of Forcing People to Work With the Unvaccinated, How Strategy Games Reinforce Colonialism

This week on TMI, your host, Aldous, has lost a friend of his to suicide. We pay tribute to Peter Conover, his inimitable music, his vision of connectedness, and we also acknowledge that, for those who take their own lives, they had to fight to remain here as long as they did. We share resources to help those still with us, still fighting. Then, for the two musical breaks, we play songs by Peter, in tribute to his spirit and his voice.

Needing to rest, your host replays two recent segments for the remaining episode time: First, we discuss the ethics of being told that not only MUST you return to the office, versus being able to work from home, but that you may be forced to do so in the company of folks who have refused vaccination against COVID. Is it right to force someone to choose between living indoors and staying healthy? Finally, we look at how strategy board games like Puerto Rico force their players to adopt the genocidal mindsets of colonists in order to succeed at their games.

Stormé DeLarverie threw the first punch at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York City on a fateful June night in 1969, and her cry of “WHY DON’T YOU DO SOMETHING!?” should be recalled among the most influential rallying statements of any modern rights movement. Find out not just why June is Pride Month, but portions of the origin story that you may never have heard before.

Worldwide, many are turning away from organized political parties, feeling that these groups have been usurped by elite forces and thus made unresponsive to the needs of the people. But does democracy work well without them? We investigate. Finally, we go over a by-the-numbers summary of who has been arrested for the attack on the US Capitol Building on January 6th, 2021 – some of the numbers and facts here will surprise you.

TMI 12/11/2020 – BEST OF TMI: Barr Says No, The God of Einstein, and Unbiased Journalism Requires Truth

On this Best-of episode of TMI, Attorney General Bill Barr denies Trump’s allegations that there was any electoral or voter fraud sufficient to change the outcome of the Presidential Election – we discuss. Then, we talk about what kind of God was compatible with a great scientific mind like Einstein: specifically, the God outlined by Baruch Spinoza. It’s not the kind of God you’ll find preached about in almost any church in America, and is compatible with critical thinking, so check it out. Finally, we talk about how giving “both sides” equal time and attention has caused journalism to suffer, due to nothing beyond the fact that far too frequently, only one side is discussing facts (and too often, neither are).
