Same. It’s hard to talk to people, even if I try to listen and share. Work is becoming the same. 


THC is in the big leagues now with the inclusion of  Dr. Andrew Wakefield as a guest.   Logistical issues aside, you provided another great – and greatly needed – show.  As a long term subscriber, this is a long overdue thanks for all the work you put into the show to bring a widely diverse topics for our consideration. I appreciate your even handed questions, without too much personal commentary.  Your modest subscriber fee is  well-worth the value of the information you bring to your audience. 



This was a great show – I wouldnt have noticed any sound issues if you hadn’t pointed it out. What a A+ guest and valuable hour and a half. Loved it. 
About the end- it says a lot that someone is still listening to all the free portions of your show and then takes the time to write a comment to complain about $8 Don’t stress about people who would STILL complain if it was $5 or even $3. You’ve given out coupon codes on when you appear on other shows – use the coupon code! I mean sheesh! You’re doing the lords work, give yourself a pat on the back. Everyone knows this is the best place to get a good mix of the fringe topics and you are the best interviewer in the entire conspira-sea. Don’t sell yourself short because a few people are cheap and entitled.

Amen! Couldn't have said it better! Love your work Greg.


Cynthia Cooper

This was an amazing show. Thank you for all of your hard work. 

Donald Tiver

Don't overthink it Greg! For every loudmouthed, ignorant motherfucker there's at least 2 quiet and happy motherfuckers. And thanks for not doing ads. Most I ever skip on thc is the music lol. Keep doing what you're doing!


you do great work gregg.  dont doubt yourself.  your interview with dean henderson was one of his best.  now you have done the wakefield and the clive and you are ready for the dr jennifer daniels inerview.  check out some of her other interviews.  the first one I saw was her interview with clive on UK column.  its still on youtube.

about dr wakefield, he is a bit naive when he states the the batches of vaccine were tainted accidentally or it is just about money.  there is a point where we can see the intentions of the nefarious few, as you say.  I admired your restraint in not commenting on his naivete.  you did a great job, the vaccine industry's pinto letter says it all.

thank you


It was excellent coverage.  I don't fund many independent journalists.  You are among three which includes the Highwire.  You are a beautiful mix of entertainment and extremely important and interesting topics.  The interview was clear and well done here.  Love to you and Dr. Wakefield for this and your entire body of work.  




I am fed up with being called a "conspiracy theorist" or "vaccine denier" by people who can not even define what the term means when pushed, so I have taken to calling them "conspiracy deniers". Particularly when they feel its important enough of a job for them to publish the following which was the top result in google…  https://www.who.int/immunization/sage/meetings/2016/october/8_Best-practice-guidance-respond-vocal-vaccine-deniers-public.pdf Sound fine btw The Carlwood. 


Have now listened to it and what a great interview and if anything the sound of the boat was a nice bonus 🙂 And how refreshing to hear a pro who is open to both terrain and germ theory playing a part in our well-being. Regarding getting the vaccine I just tell people I never install .1 updates on my phone and usually wait for .2 or .3 for them to iron out any potential issues… Here since 2019 btw, despite the occasionaly flat bashing. Would love it if you did a show about crypto, although from which angle I wouldn´t know. Why not open to paying with $ARRR? Easy to set up they say. Finally, hadn´t heard about the Pinto memo, but great example to show these conspiracy deniers. Ps… just a thought… as the free listeners have to listen to the extra intro, can us paying subscribers not have to listen to the extra outro on this… Already here and planning on staying. Happy to support and tbh the only podcast I return to on a weekly basis. You are not replacable Greg. One of a kind. Lev vel and keep on keeping on! 


Great interview! I’ve been a loyal Plus+ members for at least 5 years now. Money well spent!!

Just wanted to say thank you and send some positivity your way. No need to apologize or hold it in. Authenticity is lacking in our world, but not in our THC host. We’ve been brainwashed into portraying an unfeeling “professional” front instead of forming actual community and comradery. Please keep doing what you’re doing. There is always a bad apple around, good riddance to those.


We love you Greg. Thanks for being a truth warrior. Real eyes. Realize. Real Lies. THC for life


I haven't had a chance to listen yet . . . . . you've really got me wondering what I'm in for!


Never a let down. Thank you Sir!


great episode greg


You are the wayshower for your family and friends and many podcast listeners brother Greg. 
Many  of us are in the same boat as you in regards to family getting vaccinated even when you have explained in detail the pros and cons of it all. None of us want to be the ones who state I told you so … especially if those we love and care about end up injured or worse. But sadly it will be the way it is.

All we can truly do Greg is preserve the health of ourselves and our closest loved ones who get it..



Probably one of the best eps ever. Heavy shit, but very much needed. 


Great interview!


I think you and your sound editor did a great job. I wouldn't stress too much about time on this one either, they can't all be three-hour bangers. Hell, a lot of podcasts regularly have a third of the time taken up with ads, plugs and unrelated banter between cohosts so I don't worry about cutting some carbs out of an interview and coming short of a two-hour show. 

I grew up near Greg's hometown, had a Catholic upbringing I didn't really enjoy, worked retail and moved to the west coast to at least be a wage slave in so-called paradise, so I totally get where he's coming from most of the time and appreciate his insights. IMO Greg is as honest and upfront as a host can be about practically everything. He shouldn't feel the need to keep apologizing for things out of his control or keep explaining his actions to the small minority of smooth brains out there. If anything, the close-minded audience members are my biggest criticism of THC, so he should focus more on the things that are positive about the show and the growing alternative community.


Bravo Greg. I’m one of those 3% who converted because some of your interviews were so valuable that I couldn’t help but support especially in the light hearted earlier days of big p h a r m a censorship pre c o v I d. This was a great interview and normally if I’m honest I don’t stick around for the post interview breakdowns but this time I did and just this rant alone was with my $8 because if one person can hear it who needs that punch of truth then mission accomplished. Keep up the great work.


Long time subscriber. There will always be haters. I stopped for a short while when I found the guests during that stretch rather poor, but came back shortly thereafter and have continued since. No one's holding a gun to their heads to subscribe. Huge fan Greg and keep doing what you're doing.

Now related to this episode…I'm familiar with some of the content in the movie The Act and of course arguments from multiple sides of the vaccine topic. However I'm not as familiar with what exactly happened with Andrew's retracted study on vaccines. I'm fully aware of how big corp unleashes character assassinations on individuals who challenge them, but does anyone have more details on exactly whether the accusations that Andrew commited "fraud" with his study were fully proven or has Andrew ever given his side of the story?



"CALLOUS DISREGARD – Autism and Vaccines-The Truth Behind a Tragedy" is the book he's written to give his side of the story. 

A great read. 



Thanks Greg for clarifying that – I'll have to watch Vaxxed as well now.


Andrew's study was not about vaccines at all and he was never accused of "fraud". They nailed him on a trumped up technicality of which he was later absolved of. It was a complete  witch hunt made to make an example of hin to other doctors that this is what awaits them if the DARE to ask questions about any vaccines. 



Im a long time subscriber for a reason, you consistently bring the goods my friend!! heart 

Jasper Beechwood

Awesome show Greg! It's always a pleasure to listen to Dr Wakefield and you asked all the right questions. This is the sort of thing I signed up for Plus and much prefer it to the more speculative conspiracy stuff. Magic and Leprechauns are fine by me too!

I left a voicemail about my take on the psychology beneath vaccine madness a couple of days ago, so this show was an interesting synchronicity.



You and THC and the community are irreplacable!we need each other, especially now.wink


Awesome show and excellent rant! I would subscribe at $80 per month. You’re mistaken that someone could do this better than you do. Keep doing what you do and never, never give up in the face of adversity.

Hey Greg! I'm about to give it a listen. Guess I missed the drop last night, oops. 

Maybe y'all discuss it in this episode, but have you done any extra digging on the SPARs document that was recently uncovered? Jay Dyer did an emergency podcast episode on it and Charlie Robinson covered it as well. I've found it really interesting and it almost terrifies me for the people who got the cocid vaccine. 


That's the link to the official doc above. It was uncovered by Jay Dyer and Alex Jones crew. I've been waiting for someone else to cover the subject. 

Anyways, have an awesome day, im about to give this a listen. 


Excellent episode Greg … for the record, don’t leave the vaccine question influence your decision on having kids or not … it’s the best thing you’ll ever do … My eldest was vaccinated and my youngest not .. the eldest has dyspraxia, adhd and it’s obvious his guts/ stomach are badly affected ( allergies etc) , the youngest is four and is strong as a horse … no issues . Feed them well and stay outa the doctors office and you can’t go far wrong 

Moshe Diane Ramsay

Same here. 
My 16 year-old, unvaccinated daughter is healthier than me.


Todd ryan

Great episode!  For some further clarification on my initial post, SPARs is a pandemic scenario that John Hopkins did a study on that's based in 2025-2028 and has happened to follow the exact time-line our covid scenario on. They talk about what types of hash tags will be needed to market this "fictional" virus and what it will take to get the population to get vaccinated. I strongly urge people to check out that document in the original post and maybe even Charlie Robinson and Jay Dyer's podcast on it. 



Shows like this are an example of why THC is important in addition to being entertaining. 5 start show. Thanks!


Love you Greg! Don’t listen to the whiners complaining about $8/month. Let them keeps stuff their faces with McDonald’s you don’t want them in your audience anyway!
