GOOD VIBRATIONS PODCAST, VOL. 138: JOHN POTASH - DRUGS AS WEAPONS AGAINST US (FILM)
American author, investigative journalist and film-maker John Potash returns to talk about the content of his newly-released two-hour documentary ‘Drugs As Weapons Against Us: The CIA War on Musicians and Activists.’ The film draws on the content of John’s two books, detailing how the intelligence agencies of the US, (with some heavy collusion from British military intelligence, as it turns out,) have systematically used drugs as a method of neutralising musicians and activists who have become outspoken threats to the control system status quo, and how the same agendas keep getting rolled out decade after decade.
Along the way the conversation encompasses such names and subjects as Tupac, Notorious BIG, Puff Daddy, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, the Black Panthers, Laurel Canyon, Dave McGowan, the Tavistock Institute, Timothy Leary, the Grateful Dead, MK-Ultra, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones.
