OT: Paul Simpson radio interview

Paul Simpson, while at Star Trek Magazine, got to herd us writers around, making sure we hit deadlines and word counts, and was largely successful, mostly because he made us wear the Collars of Obedience.

I had the pleasure of turning the tables on him when he wrote That's What They Want You to Think: Conspiracies Real, Possible, and Paranoid for me at my day job. I wanted to make him wear the Cone of Shame, but he confounded me by always being on time.

Anyway, in support of the book (which we like to call TWTWYTT) Paul will be interviewed for 1 hour on The X Zone Radio Show on Monday, June 11, 2p m- 3pm Eastern. The X Zone is heard around the world by people interested in "investigating the world of the Paranormal and the science of Parapsychology." There are various ways to listen:

The 'X' Zone Radio Show" is broadcast internationally and syndicated by The 'X' Zone Broadcast Network ( and the TalkStar Radio Network, Monday - Friday from 10 pm - 2 am Eastern / 7 pm - 11 pm Pacific and then repeated in its entirety from 2 am - 6 am Eastern / 11 pm - 3 pm. Podcasts are available on Apple iTunes and at ‘X’ Zone Podcasts -

I hope you all tune in to listen to Paul (or his pod person double) talk about conspiracies!
Star Trek TOS: The More Things Change is an eBook exclusive available now for Kindle and Nook.

Re: OT: Paul Simpson radio interview

Thanks for the heads up -- I'll definitely tune in.

I've read about half of TWTWYTT so far and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. It's not only entertaining but very well-researched, and the conspiracies span the globe. In fact, there's something for everyone's paranoia...

Nice work Paul!

Re: OT: Paul Simpson radio interview

But is there really an interview, or is that just what they want us to think?
