It's eleven years after 9/11, and for many people, the events leading up to that fateful day are still shrouded in mystery.

Pleas from the families of the victims for a new investigation have been ignored. Calls to help, financially, and otherwise, the heroic rescue workers that risked their lives that day have been determined by those in power to be unimportant. Questions that have been raised by the general public concerning the sheer absurdity of say, how a hi-jackers passport could be found on the ground in mint condition or how building 7 could collapse on its own have been discarded by the uninformed as being irrelevant.

Thankfully, there are people out there that can help us as a society piece together how this terrible event happened, and one of those people is Susan Lindauer. A former CIA asset at the highest level, Susan's story and testimony counteracts any notion that the 9/11 attacks came out of nowhere, and that they simply could not be predicted.

What follows is Part 1 of our interview with Susan; Part 2 will be released this coming Monday 1st October. Enjoy.


Satish Sekar is a freelance journalist, researcher, and author of what has been dubbed 'one of the most important books ever written about criminal justice', The Cardiff Five: Innocent Beyond Any Doubt. In this edition of the podcast, we talk to Satish about the case, the nature of the justice system in terms of protecting the guilty and punishing the innocent, and the arguments for and against a National DNA Database.

Young people everywhere are waking up, questioning the system, and discussing new ways for humans to operate in the uncertain future ahead. Although the self-proclaimed 'elites' would have you believe that the activist spirit awakened in the young is a result of groundless optimism, naivety, and a lack of understanding, those with peripheral and critical vision can see clearly that we are in the midst of an unprecedented revolution: a revolution of the mind. The youth are at the forefront of this revolution.

Going against the grain can be challenging, and to discuss this, we welcomed to our podcast Keelan Balderson, a freelance journalist, documentary filmmaker, and internet radio host from the UK. In our interview, we also touch on the causes and dynamics of the 2011 London Riots (and Keelan's documentary on the subject). Enjoy!

This week, the world saw its first ever Twitter-hosted wedding. That's right - a Turkish couple made it official by tweeting on their iPads. Whether you find this innovative or just plain depressing, it is clear that social media is playing an ever-increasing role in our lives. Many have serious concerns - modern-day children spend more time using screen media, which includes social media, than participating in any other activity (Rideout, 2005), and authors such as Sherry Turkle have wondered aloud if social networks have made us all feel 'alone together'. 

We explored these concerns and dug deeper into the real implications of this new technology with Matteo Wyllyamz (aka Mouselink), a New-York based author, teacher, public speaker and artist. Enjoy!

Prescient or polarizing? Insightful or inane? Brilliant or bonkers? David Icke remains one of the most talked about figures in the world of independent news and alternative thinking. Despite being consistently ridiculed by the mainstream press, Icke has remained steadfast on his mission to expose the 'make believe reality' we live in, authoring 19 books and speaking to large audiences all around the globe. In this edition of the Smells Like Human Spirit Podcast, we critically examine Icke's key ideas and philosophies, and discuss whether it is good practice to discard someone's entire world view simply because they possess beliefs that may not be considered 'normal'. Enjoy!
