What's up with the fascination with zombies and vampires? Why is the skeptic movement actually the exact opposite of true skepticism? A couple of interviews I did you may find interesting: Sky Blue Symposia (formerly Time Monk Radio) has one of the most in-depth interview forums with a panel of well-prepared interviewers (from different countries) coming at you from various angles. This was my best opportunity to share thoughts I've had about the meanings of the evolving zombie and vampire mythology happening in popular culture (among other topics). Here is their description of the interview: We talk to Jonathan Zap about using a modern application of Jungian archetypes to help understand ourselves and our world. For over 30 years he has been using the tools of Jungian psychology to study popular culture, contemporary mythology, and dreams. Topics include: anima, animus, and the shadow. Zombies, vampires and parasites. Dream interpretation. Zombie banks, wall street and psychopaths. Femininity, patriarchy, and the white madonna and black madonna. 2012 and Y2K. Jonathan uses movies, books and current events to illustrate how various archetypes give us another perspective to make sense of our world. Skyblue Symposia Interview with Jonathan Zap I also an interview with WGXC and my friend Emory Mort who plays a Colbert like character, Dr. Jim McCourt, who is an arch skeptic/debunker. Some funny moments. It gets a bit confrontational at times and was a good opportunity for me to take on scientism and phony skepticism. copy and paste into your browser: http://wgxc.org/archives/6286

Time Monk Radio did a 175 minute commercial free interview with me that was the most thorough interview I've ever done. There were several interviewers in various countries (all available in realtime on Skype). We covered the Singularity Archeytpe, psychopathy, mind parasites, dynamic paradoxicalism and many other topics.
3/17/12 The Edge with Daniel Ott
With 5 interviews scheduled in a 4 week period I didn't look too closely at the background of the interviewers. This one turned out to be a right wing, indoor-cowboy- hat-wearing, science-hating, Obama-demonizing birther which brought out the confrontational Bronx side of my personality. You might find the result an hilarious conflict of types:
3/20/12 Serious Wonder
I did three interviews with Mike Hagan of Radio Orbit. Here are the links to three interviews followed by an image Radio Orbit photoshopped from an actual photo of me sitting on a bengal tiger (oh, and in response to several inquiries—this tiger was not being abused, was not chained up—I worked for many years at the Prairie Wind Animal Refuge (where the photo was taken and which is now under new management) where we rescued tigers and other big cats from guaranteed hunts and other abusive situations. This particular tiger loved interacting with people and was exceptionally well trained.
