Graham Hancock’s recent Podcast Appearances


roganhancockcarlsonGraham Hancock has many skills & achievements, but it’s the publishing of his new book: “Magicians of the Gods” (Sequel to his 1995 book “Fingerprints of the Gods”) which has sent him on a whirlwind promotional tour in the United States making him the guest on many recent podcasts. Hancock’s appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast (episode #725) with colleague Randall Carlson was probably the most famous, but Hancock made other podcast appearances which are a must listen for true fans. Also it’s fun to note all these podcast hosts are recurring guest on Joe Rogan’s Podcast. So if you are a Rogan fan you will most likely enjoy these guys or may have heard of them. If you aren’t familiar with Graham Hancock you can refer to the brief description I have written below. If you know who he is then please dive right into the list of podcasts and enjoy!

   Who is Graham Hancock?

   Graham Hancock wrote a book in 1995Graham_Hancock_7228 named “Fingerprints of the Gods.” In his book Hancock proposed there are traces of an ancient advanced civilization, lost to history, right under our noses. In this book Hancock laid out evidence available to him at the time as well as theories on how such an advanced civilization could disappear, so completely, from the human record. A main body of evidence Hancock sited in his book was water erosion found on the great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt. Work done by geologist Robert Schoch and author John Anthony West had theorized and shown water erosion, which they explain would have taken at least 1,000 years of rain to produce, is present on the great Sphinx. The real mystery begins when they explain it has been around 12,000 years since there was enough rainfall in that area to produce such erosion. Thus theorizing the Great Sphinx is at least 13,000 years old.
This book was initially rejected by mainstream archaeology. The people in mainstream archeology debated the proposition of the Sphinx being older by stating no other monolithic sites have ever been found to date back so far. That argument fell apart years later with the discovery of Gobekli Tepe in modern day Turkey. A giant monolithic site, which according to experts, is at least 11,000 years old. Graham Hancock visits, studies and documents this discovery heavily in his new book. Also contained in his book is overwhelming evidence of a cataclysmic extinction level event caused by a comet impact on the North American ice sheets causing the Younger Dryas Period (c. 12,900 to c. 11,700 years ago). Hancock proposes an advanced human civilization was destroyed as a direct result of this impact. I highly recommend reading his book “Magicians of the Gods”, but it’s not necessary to enjoy the podcasts listed above. He also narrates an audio book version which is amazing as well.

My Take on Political Parties (Open Letter to Dan Carlin)

I invite you yo read my open letter to Dan Carlin who host two podcasts: “Hardcore History” and “Common Sense.” He will be on an upcoming episode of the “Drunken Taoist Podcast” Hosted by Daniele Bolelli so I submited this letter on their forum as a question for Dan.

Dear Dan,

You seem to suffer from a “condition” that allows you to see how future events will unfold. There’s no doubt that you use your knowledge of history as well as great understanding of current events and some good old fashion intuition to do this. My question is with this “condition”(some may call a gift or a curse) do you see the natural progression of where our once great nation is heading? If so is there really anything we can do? Or do you feel by the time the average citizen figures out what is going on it will be too late?

Also related to this topic is something you talk about and I try to promote as well which is the divide in this country between political parties. I find it fascinating that our founding fathers were against parties AND this seems to be the root of our problem today. I believe this proves the knowledge possessed by our founding fathers of people and governmental ideals hold true even up til present times. For the problem is not the parties themselves so much as it is the divide created by these parties. (Get out your tin foil cap)It’s as if a group of monarchs, emperors and dictators had a meeting about where they went wrong in the past. They knew they could hold power for awhile through various methods of tyranny, oppression and fear , BUT eventually the people became disgruntled enough and realized they could rise up and seize power themselves.

I imagine all these rulers in a room and one stands up and yells “eureka!! All we have to do is have to seperate sides take turns ruling. We can have the people vote for which side they want every few years. They will pretend to oppose each other but in reality will support us and our will(the monarchs being the “us”). And just to throw off the people we will use topics such as abortion and gay marriage to really divide them around election time.”

ANYWAYS where I was going with this was: I see a lot of unhappy people that have been gathering, ie the Tea Party. And it seems there is hope for people to “wake up” and see what is happening to their country. BUT I fear that if a republican wins next time around all that will go away just as the anti-war/anti-Bush era stuff did once Obama took office. I was, as I’m sure you were and still are trying to make this known to as many people as possible. The hope I do possess comes from the fact I see more people who are not buying into the 2 party system BS. So having said all that do you feel there are enough people in the “know” to effect anything? Maybe you could do a history show on political parties :))

Thank You for reading this post. You can take your tin foil cap off now, I’m going to keep mine on though. Looking forward to you on the Drunken Taoist Podcast as well as any future episodes of Common Sense and Hard Core History.
Thanks Again,
Brandon Smith
