Wow.  A lot to wrap my head around from this podcast.  Gonna have to listen to it a few times to “catch” all the things referenced here and look ‘em up.

Keep ‘em coming.

Wow!  One of the best shows I’ve heard so far.  Love this stuff and you’re so damn smart it makes my eyeballs hurt.

Hey Marc,

I’ve now listened to the Adam Parfrey interview six times to completion.  I started to recognize the patterns upon first listen, and used a 45-character cipher to decode the hidden messages (started by assigning the number “1” to the word “culture,” number “2” to the word “publish,” and so forth, which I believe was your intention).  I then took the numbers and re-transcoded the images into symbols and words, and by the sixth listen I was really able to hear the tones and add them to the numerical pattern cipher.  So I wanted you and Adam to know clearly - the MESSAGE HAS BEEN RECEIVED, and I will await further instructions.

Just kidding, man.  Great conversation.  Long time fan of the show - thanks for keeping it going!
