For the last seven years, documentary filmmaker/talk show host John Ziegler has pursued the truth in the Penn State scandal with a passion exhibited not even by the prosecutors and defense attorneys. What really happened to get Paterno fired and Sandusky arrested? How were so many allowed to be so reckless with the lives, careers and families of the accused? Sara Ganim, Aaron Fisher, Mike McQueary, Andrew Shubin, Matt Sandusky, Mike Gillum, Alan Myers. All have shaky stories in some form or fashion. Find out how and why the media blew one of the most fascinating stories ever out of kneejerk fear. For documents, audio clips and further information, check out John Ziegler's site at

On this episode, Maddux talks to author and podcaster Robert Stark about his new book, Journey to Vapor Island, about a Jewish boy who dreams of ruling an Aryan paradise with neon lights and Greco-Roman architecture alongside his blond haired, blue eyed Jewish queen. Also expect a few excursions into contemporary political subjects such as the rumored Hillary/Huma snuff film on the Dark Web, and Mueller's unending quest to prove Russian collusion even as Trump threatens all out war with Russia. D-U-M-B!

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Art Bell, who made late night talk radio his bitch.

The show opens with Maddux talking about Smallville actress Allison Mack’s involvement in a sex cult. Also touched upon is the man in London who stabbed an intruder in self defense. The intruder’s family has been on an unholy, demonic crusade to erect shrines to the deceased thug in front of the victim’s home, forcing them to seek shelter in a safe house provided by authorities. Henry Vincent was no good! And his daughter can’t spell for shit, judging by the ‘tribute’ she left for him.

Next up is our esteemed guest, Chris Garetano, director of Montauk Chronicles and The Dark Files.

Christopher Garetano has been on a ten year mission to unravel the mysteries of the Montauk Project, a legend that has survived for decades on the lips of men claiming to have worked for a top secret project focused on everything from mind control to dimension hopping. In those ten years, Garetano has been able to confirm aspects of the legend, which is discussed here.

Based Southern Belle returns in her fourth appearance to co-host with Maddux and talk about what she’s been up to in the months following the local government misconduct at Unite the Right, how social media is ramping up their censorship of her on all platforms and her plans of returning to activism.

In the final segment, Maddux was joined by Maddie Holliday Von Stark to talk about her recent dust up with fellow authors over the never ending gun control debate, her many brushes with death and how a black widow once saved her life.

Joshi is something of a magnet for detractors due to his outspoken criticism of weird fiction and its many authors. Most recently, Joshi drew the ire of one Brian Keene. Seeing as Keene would never see fit to have Joshi on his ‘Horror Show’ as a guest (he doesn’t live in Pennsylvania and isn’t friends with the host, after all), we here in Strangeville wasted no time in extending an invitation to the esteemed man who has made his life not only Lovecraft, but the slow creeping evolution of the weird tale.

Also covered: the veritable ‘who’s who’ list of Joshi detractors. See if you can catch your name in there! Joshi revealed to Maddux in the course of this interview that he has more than thirty projects in various stages of development, from memoirs to anthologies, his second collection of criticism (21st Century Horror) and even a novel called Something From Below.

In the opening moments, Maddux revisits the Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 where Hitler would first capture the imagination of the German public upon his arrest for treason.

Then, we get down to brass tacks as legendary artist Ben Garrison talks about his struggles with the denizens of 4chan and their misappropriation of his arts for anti-semitic ends.

On this episode, science fiction author, documentary filmmaker and philosopher Davis Aurini stops by to talk with Maddux about out of control technologies, the dynamics between men and women, American and Canadian corruption, the Alt Right, Google censorship and contributing to the people in your life instead of just being rampant consumerists.

Maddux also reviews The Bear Comes Home by Rafi Zabor.

Maddux begins the episode with a recap of his appearance on D-Bag Politics, which host Christoph Paul ragequit at the mention of the ‘N’ word, Nazi. From there, he talks to researcher Scott Binsack about his work on the Mandalay Bay mystery, Stephen Paddock and they also look at the possibility that the choppers in the air that night opened fire.
