My first podcast, Tales From The Rabbit Hole goes live today! TFTRH is an interview podcast where I chat with people whose lives have been affected by conspiracy theory culture. There's believers, ex-believers, family members, debunkers, and researchers. TFTRH.com

Episode 1 - The Ex Conspiracy Theorist, where I talk to Jon about his fascinating journey in and out of the Rabbit Hole, and how he's now using what he learned to help others escape. https://www.tftrh.com/2019/04/19/tftrh-001-ex-conspiracy-theorist/

Episode 2 - Mike Rothschild & QAnon. Not a member of the Rothschilds banking family, Mike is a writer, researcher, debunker, and expert on the QAnon theory. We talk about what QAnon is, the weirder aspects of the theory, real-world implications, and what it might become. https://www.tftrh.com/2019/05/03/episode-2-mike-rothschild-discussing-qanon/

Episodes 3 & 4 - (Coming next week) An extended interview with Stian Arnesen, a member of the 9/11 Truth community from Norway

After posting on Facebook I got a couple of people asking for it on Stitcher.com, so I've submitted it there, and it shoudl be up in a few days.

Are there any other platforms I'm missing that people use for podcasts?
This is great! Was hoping that this existed, and to find you just started it. I'm currently trying to pull someone from the rabbit hole.
Glad you’re doing this, it’s great to hear from all angles on this stuff. I already listened to the first 2 episodes and am looking forward to more!
Is Google Play Music available to you? That's the one I use for my podcast listening, and it doesn't seem that Google Podcasts shares their resources so it's not available on there.
I forgot to check back on this as I thought they would email me. I did the verify owner thing, and had do to another step to actually submit it for approval.

So should be there in a day or two.
Google Play, typed "Mick West"......result...

...typed "rabbit hole" ....also similar first-page results. I'm not sure if I'm being tracked for keywords though.
I could delete all cookies, to help check.

I too was unable to find it on my Chromebook, nor any of my usual Podcasts for that matter, but when accessing using my mobile device on the Google Play Store I was able to search and find it. (Samsung Galaxy J7, Android 8.1.0.) Maybe device specific availability for podcasts?
Just listened to Ep 1 and I have to say a couple of things. I am continually amazed at the gravity that an English accent brings to civilized American discussion. I know this has been been proved statistically through randomized trials and I have personal experience with this phenomenon, yet it still amazes me that I am aware of it but give it extraordinary weight nonetheless.

All that aside, I enjoyed the interplay between you and John and his websites, as well as the insights from his trip down the rabbit hole. Like Alice, he found a way out.

Very good content, @Mick West, I have subscribed and look forward to listening to the rest.
Just listening to Michael #37, but don't see a dedicated thread. Thought I'd post some thoughts as I'm listening.

1. Love the bit where he says something like "and then you wake up, and you're levitating, you know?"

2. Not sure I've reached a bit yet where his 'experiences' sound convincingly different from normal sleep paralysis or hallucinations. But they do remind me of some 'visions' I've had. I mean, I've had lots of 'experiences' in this realm that he's talking about - but 'visions' are something different. Very, very different from lucid dreams, convincing dreams, hallucinations, etc (I've only had about 4; they're pretty cool).

3. Actually, nothing else to say - just seems like a stream of gobbledygook. Poor chap. He seems nice enough but, alas, if the aliens are coming to visit him, they don't seem to be doing anything helpful as far as clarity of thought goes. :(

Blimey, Mick, what was going on with the interview with the flat earther (Episode 42)? I tuned in to get the lowdown on a flat earth perspective of coronavirus and, twenty minutes in...well, I shall bite my tongue. :(
