GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 131: LEILA WILLS - TRAPPED IN A CULTURE: CHILD MOLESTATION ON HIP-HOP



In Spring 2016, hip-hop culture pioneer, Afrika Bambaataa, was publicly accused by two men of having sexually molested them when they were minors. This cast a new light on the true nature one of the founding fathers of hip-hop culture, and the organisation he fronted, the Universal Zulu Nation. Despite the seriousness of the allegations - now backed up by many others from Bambaataa’s past - both mainstream and specialist media have largely ignored the story.

Chicago-based journalist and researcher Leila Wills guests on this episode to discuss her new documentary, ‘Trapped In A Culture: Child Molestation In Hip-Hop,’ which examines the claims against Bambaataa in detail, including interviews with his accusers and former Zulu Nation members. We discuss the ambiguity surrounding Bamabaataa’s early days in The Bronx, and many aspects of his life story which appear to have been falsified. We also scrutinise the true nature of the Universal Zulu Nation, which many former members have described as being run more as a quasi-religious cult than as a social movement. 

Bambaataa appears to have incorporated aspects of various secret societies and occult mystery schools into his symbolism and doctrines. In particular, we examine the disturbing parallels to Dr. Malachi Z York’s Nuwaubian movement/ cult. York, who appears to have been a mentor to Bambaataa, is serving a 135-year jail sentence on child sexual abuse charges. KRS One, who had initially spoken up in defence of Bambaataa, comes in for his own scrutiny too, as many previously-accepted myths and legends about some of hip-hop’s key figures come to be reassessed. Is there more to know about how this whole scene really got started?

Leila expects to release her documentary shortly, but is still in need of funding to finalise things, having self-financed the whole project so far. She is welcoming any donations to help get the film out. These can be made via Paypal to donate@trappedinaculture.com, or via Indiegogo.com. Search for ‘Trapped In A Culture’ there.

VIDEO: MARK DEVLIN ON-LINE Q&A SESSION, OCTOBER 2018


Here, as promised, is the first of my on-line Q&A video sessions, where I give my thoughts on questions sent in by readers and listeners. I’ll do another one in a few weeks.

CORRECTION


In the reference to Jordan Maxwell, and his assumed name being based on that of Jordanus Maximus, I mistakenly said that this reference appeared in writings by the Theosophist Alice Bailey. In fact, the name appeared in the book ‘Isis Unveiled’, by the other well-known Theosophist, Helena Blavatsky.

GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 130: MARK STEELE - 5G: A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER



How much would I love NOT to have to put out episodes like this? But for as long as the threats and dangers remain, it continues needing to be done. Here we go again…

*

And today's particular threat to human health and wellbeing coming to a town near you soon is ... the imminent rollout of 5G communications technology across the UK and other nations. (Don't worry - there'll be another one along tomorrow.)

Joining the show is Mark Steele, a businessman-turned anti-5G activist in his hometown of Gateshead in the North-East of England. Mark is currently embroiled in a legal battle with the town's council after he went public with his concerns at how the test transmissions of 5G technology there have allegedly been responsible for a swathe of health defects among the population, including stillbirths, nosebleeds and sleep disruption. 

Mark outlines why this radiation-drenched technology is such bad news for the health of both humans and other species, notably insects, whose numbers have been falling off. The installation of the antenna network that will be needed is resulting in the cutting down of thousands of trees, and the long-term plan is for this to be the case in all regions, not just the ones affected so far.


Mark points out that the time for action and resistance is now, as everyone and their families stands to be affected by this scheme if it's not stopped in its tracks, and if basic conscience and right action is not put into place.
