Nowhere To Go But Up


Jul 21, 2020

In this episode I get to have a conversation with Ricky Varandas who is the host of a show that I'm a fan of called "The Ripple Effect Podcast". We get to know each other talking about conspiracies, being a father, the influences that we followed before we started a show. We talked about a lot of different topics in this conversation.

 

The Ripple Effect Podcast:

The Ripple Effect Podcast has historians on like Dan Carlin, musicians like Rou from Enter Shikari, scientists like Cara Santa Maria, alternative researcher like James Corbett, stand-up comedians like The Amazing Jonathan, health & medicine experts like Dr. Burzynski, filmmakers like Adam Scorgie, authors like Daniele Bolelli and many more guests in hopes to bring our listeners interesting people, and interesting conversations, with the goal of "Provoking Thought & Starting A Ripple."

The Con Description:

The 2008 financial crisis seemed to hit the American landscape out of nowhere. But in reality, it was both the inevitable conclusion to 40 years of Wall Street misconduct, and a warning for the meltdown that threatens to engulf us now. In the gripping original five-part docuseries THE CON, filmmaker Patrick Lovell investigates what happened, beginning with personal stories — including the foreclosure of his own Utah home, and the suicide of a 91-year-old African American widow in Akron, Ohio — before zooming out to examine the corrupt systems that doomed the United States to government funded bailouts that would only perpetuate a predatory system. Lovell also looks back to when the government properly functioned for the people it represented by holding banks accountable during the Great Depression and rescuing the country from the S&L Crisis of the late 1980s. Through interviews with those inside the 2008 crisis — regulators, former officials, foreclosure victims, industry whistleblowers, and journalists — Lovell and writer-director Eric Vaughan connect the dots to what America used to be, and most crucially, where we’re going in 2020, as nearly 40 million Americans are claiming unemployment by summer 2020.
 
Amongst the many heartbreaks and horrors of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cracks that it exposed in the fragile financial tapestry of the world’s biggest economy are more evidence that THE CON is still on.
