Alex Tsakiris: [00:00:00] Welcome to Skeptiko where we explore controversial science and spirituality with leading researchers, thinkers and their critics. I’m your host Alex Tsakiris, and I’m really excited about today’s show, because I’m not just a podcaster and I’ve been a podcaster for a long time, but I got into podcasting because I was a listener and I still am a podcast listener today. I love to share the work of people who really inspire me and there’s a guy who has really been knocking it out of the park lately. You might have seen him on the show before, his name is Richard Cox, but he has a show, The Deep State Consciousness podcast.
So Richard, thanks so much for joining me and welcome to Skeptiko. Welcome back.
Richard Cox: [00:00:48] Thank you Alex, thank you. Nice to be back.

Alex Tsakiris: [00:00:52] So, let’s see. Of course, you are being roped into playing Skeptiko Jeopardy. You knew that coming in, so there’s kind of no secrets in any of that.
Richard Cox: [00:01:05] Yeah, but it’s more high-tech than last time I was on, this is really exciting. I listen to the show, I haven’t seen this, this is like, really, like we’re on a game show now.
Alex Tsakiris: [00:01:13] Yeah, you’re right. We’re taking it to the next level. Sure, sure. Okay, I’m going read the Skeptiko Jeopardy board, for those who are just listening along. It starts out with, Deep States. 9/11. Podcasting. Cultish. Trauma. Medium, Non-Duality. Suicide and ET.
Now, you have not been given a heads-up in any of these topics. So we’re going to get the raw unedited version of Richard Cox. I’m going to pick the first one, because I think it’s only appropriate, since I did just a little bit of an introduction. You tell us more about the podcast.
Richard Cox: [00:01:56] Okay. Well, I never intended to do a podcast, I fell into it because I was doing some work with Tim Freke, a philosopher, a previous guest on the show, republishing some of his books. And I felt like Tim goes through so many different things, There are a lot of subjects he’s covered in the past, like Zen and gurus, that he’s written books on perhaps, but there was nothing on YouTube and I thought, “Hey, someone should interview about this,” and no one was. So I thought I’d throw my hat in the ring and see if I could pull off an interview. And he wasn’t too awful, people told me, so I sort of liked it.
And then I realized that I knew all of these interesting people who were just quietly living their lives and I felt the world deserved to hear a bit more from them. So initially, I thought I’d just do one or two and then I kept finding that I knew more and more interesting people. So that’s how I kind of slipped into the whole podcast thing.
Alex Tsakiris: [00:02:44] Maybe we’ll just leave it at that, because I think we’ll get into that as I let you pick the next topic that we might go to.
Richard Cox: [00:02:56] I’m going to run roughshod over all of these boundaries, so you’ll have to watch me there Alex. I mean,
