DEAD HAND RADIO

WHAT IS THE DEAD HAND?

Available on all podcast platforms including Anchor.fmApplePodcastGooglePlaySpotifyStitcheriHeartYouTube and many more.

ENTER THE DEAD HAND!

DEAD HAND RADIO is a podcast about the Cold War and it’s effects on our culture, technology and the future.

If you’ll join me, together we’ll explore this fascinating period of history and examine advancements in weapons, technology, science, art and culture and discuss how all of it relates to the future of our world.

Some episodes will be solo, where I’ll deliver a monologue based on a thesis I’ve prepared for that episode. Other episodes will include guests to share specific knowledge and expertise on different areas.

My goal is to explore these topics with the audience. To learn. To educate. To entertain and exchange ideas with those interested.

My invitation to you, is take this ride with me and together we’ll find out where it goes.

And to present factual information about the world we live and the precarious nature of our human existence.

If you or someone you know has a comment or question about, or would like to contribute to the conversation, please contact me.

You can email me at deadhandradio@gmail.com or connect with me on twitter @deadhandradio

Thanks for listening.
