When is he on? I always liked Ian. My favorite memory of him was when he called to Noory one night and he was loaded.

I thought he said that even though he has a new job he's still available for Coast. I hope so. He's become my favorite sub.

Uh-oh, 80% of those accused of witchcraft in Salem and Europe in the 17th Century were women.  And not just women, independent women.

Shocking, I know.  Not only that, Ian is making quite a few assumptions about these people based on his understanding of modern social norms.  This isn't very good, I'm not going to make it for another two hours.

Wow, really fascinating three hours on Salem witch hunt. Well worth hearing if you have Insider.

Turns out there have been a lot of books written in the past 20 years that have been sympathetic to the accusers at the expense of the victims. Vast right-wing effort to side with the religious over the female Wicca?

No, quite the opposite. The accusers were the socialist-farmer class, accusing independent-minded men and women who threatened the groupthink to the point that no one really cared if they were witches or not, they just threatened the social order.

Direct parallel to "Russian collusion" as a means by which to punish those who threaten Social Justice. (Interestingly, first guest from law enforcement made the same point about accusations against police.)

Guest stated that the leftward trend in academia has caused authors to side with the accusers because they were socialists, completely setting aside their religious purge against (mostly) women. Fascinating way the Left now views the Salem witch hunt, and why it's not inconsistent to see them, not the religious anti-witch Right, as the descendants of yesterday's witch hunters.

I like that Coast tends to the Right, and Ian plays along despite his occasional discomfort.

I also liked Ian on Friday and preferred his take on "Google poisoning" to Lauren Weinstein's.

Weinstein basically thinks the good of the whole outweighs the injustice against the "few," in this case those whose lives are ruined or impacted by trollish search results that Google puts at the top of results. He feels like even if one person is saved by knowing they, say, have a predator next door, it's worth the misery that trolling in search results causes the innocent.

Ian had to pay $5,000 to clean up his search results, and obviously has a different point of view, as do I. Weinstein seems to think we should live and die by Google's "complex" algorithms, but I strongly disagree and have largely gone off the grid because of it. They can't even change a freaking business address after years of direct contact, and I'll be damned if I pay them or some third party to overcome the stupid, the incompetent, and the trollish.

It sounds like a good show; I'm sorry I missed it.  Thank you for the excellent summary.  Interesting how class-based analysis, which owes a lot to Marx, has become commonplace across the political spectrum.

How often have I seen at work when a group decides one person, usually a socially awkward fit or of a skeptical cast, is the source of all problems and rallies around a purge effort, documenting their misdeeds, convinced the load will be lighter without them.  There is a kind of energy that comes from such Lord-of-the-Flies scape-goating, and it's telling we don't have a proper word for it and I have to use so many hyphens.

I am sure there is some horrible neologism among social scientists but our ancestors knew all about it with their witch-hunts.  There are clear parallels among other pack species competing for scarce resources, including primates.

Did some research after writing the above; the book is "Switching Sides" by Tony Fels, published by Johns Hopkins last November. A few available for $29.95 on Amazon; Kindle is almost as much. Unfortunately it's not really a new book, and I credit Ian for giving it a "bump." Little-noticed on Twitter.

I think it's stunning that a historian is basically putting Trump in the role of the witches, the Left in the role of the Puritans, and "Russian collusion" in the role of "witchcraft." He makes a remarkable case, based on the scholarly writing of the past 40 years, that the SJW Left's purges are very much history repeating itself...though he didn't go so far as to say it directly, and Ian was quick with the "both sides do it" rejoinders.

You think he's going to paint the Puritans as the Religious Right not baking cakes for Wicca feminists, but he turns that completely on its head.

 A bit surprised that Ian wasn't aware of the link, at least according to no less than Max Weber, between the Reformation and that Christianity (especially Calvinist) and Capitalism. It is a foundational work in sociology and someone in religious studies would also be aware of it.

Perhaps, but couldn't it have been just what it looked like - a bunch of religious zealots living in and trying to make sense of a still superstitious world?  That the accused were mostly women and the accusers were traditional within the community hardly proves anything - most witches were thought to be women, and independent women would be viewed as more suspicious.

These early extremely devout protestants were not more fanatical than the people they'd left behind in Europe, it was just that they had a different religion and had been persecuted themselves by the Anglicans in England and the Catholics in much of the rest of Europe.  Science was still new and evolving, and these sorts of non-scientific answers were used to explain the otherwise unexplainable by most commoners.  Heck, they are still accusing people of witchcraft and killing them today in various places in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Maybe politics did play into what happened in Salem more than we've been told.  Regardless, why did it take two hours to finally get to the premise?  I realize Ian has four hours to fill, but the case could have been made in a segment or two and it was tedious with him teasing each segment by telling us we may end up siding with the accusers, but taking two hours to get to that point. 

In any event, did anyone end up sympathizing with the accusers over the accused?  Or did Ian just like the idea that they were much like the Democrats of today, twisting everything Trump says or does into something sinister and evil?  I don't really have any sympathy for any of that, and don't quite understand what Ian thought would be appealing about it.

I may be a heretic here, but I don't like "Deacon" Punnett at all. He seems like a self-righteous little prig, always having to remind you how Christian he is. As a former cleric I am familiar with such types and they can be insufferable.

"Prig: A self-righteously moralistic person who behaves as if superior to others." I think it fits. Reminds me of Dana Carvey's "Church Lady."

It's true that he's incredibly self righteous, and always reminding us he's a Christian, a deacon, a minister.  To me though he distances himself as much as possible from actual Christian faith. 

He likes research into the history and theology, he supports doing good works in the community to help others, and he no doubt loves hearing himself preach from the pulpit, but he sure doesn't want anyone to confuse him with the Christians that actually believe in the religion part.

In his defense he has mentioned this for months. Nothing odd, really, many people move, more should and economy would be better. (Californians though stop moving here.) But in academia moving is normal, especially for a 'constant' degree seeker like Ian seems to be. That, is another question, folks there who go school to school, stay in school, until they can find tenure. But moving for work to make more or expand business? That is good, generally speaking.

Bowie  8). I can't multitask worth a damn either. But I can focus like a laser beam. Sometimes. I might check in during the (near constant) commercial breaks

LOL.  Bumper is Ben by Michael Jackson.  Not sure what that has to do with Hitler and Nazis though.

I had a real problem with the guy who called and said we shouldn't talk about Hitler.  He is advocating ignorance.  Doing so would only ensure the repetition of mass tragedies such as the Holocaust.  The caller was a stupid fool.

I remember as a small child in the 50s that there was something traveling undersea off of Rio. Navies of several countries chased it and never identified it. It was in the news for at least a week.  My parents and all their friends were convinced it was Hitler.

I listened until I could no more last evening.  Ian knows the flow and spirit of the real Coast and I am so happy he is back.

It is amazing the caliber of callers that have called during open lines during Ian's show tonight compared to a Noory night. it's like night and day.  Sure a few Noory callers get in but other brighter callers call in.  You would think Premiere would get a clue. :-\

Really enjoying the music talk on open lines tonight.  Ian said he started as a dj in '78.  He was on the local Atlanta station 96 Rock and I bet I listened to him all the time but don't remember him.  Or I sort of do but the memories all hazy.

Stupidest show ever, Punnett's guest was a wanna be spy playing games.  His book should be titled, "Comic Book Guy, International Goofball of Mystery."

Guest's.  The guy was a friend of Ian's, otherwise I think he would have dropped him. Two silly hours.

Hosted by Ian Punnett

Guest: Michael Guillen

Michael Guillen, award-winning physics instructor at Harvard University, joins Ian Punnett to discuss how the scientific community is pushing the boundaries of morality, including scientists who detached the head of a Russian man from his crippled body to stitch it onto a healthy new donated one, and fertility experiments aimed at allowing designer babies to be conceived with the DNA from three or more biological parents. Followed by Open Lines.

Ian's show about "urban farming," but got into other general farming and animal husbandry topics, was actually pretty interesting and also some good callers. Though I'm a bit suspect about some small farm in SF making more money than a similar acreage in Iowa, unless they were selling weed or some really specialized herbs for dotcom yuppies-- orif they just sold their land to a real estate developer.

But you need sun. If you live on the north side of an urban building, you won’t be growing any veggies.

Mirrors, LEDs, artificial light, prisms, etc. Maybe?

This is Saturday show.



There have been recent reports that the Ark of the Covenant is inside a church in Aksum, Ethiopia, called the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion, and that only the "guardian" of the ark is allowed to see it. However, Ark historian, Dr. Tudor Parfitt, believes otherwise. He joins Ian Punnett to discuss the latest in Ark lore and knowledge of what the Ark in question really is.
