EJC #245: Filmmakers Jason Klamm and Joel Gilbert

By | EJC Show, News, Podcast | No Comments

This episode of EJC features a pair of two separate and interesting filmmakers: Jason Klamm and Joel Gilbert.

First, the guys talk about popular conspiracy nut (and supposed Trump advisor) Alex Jones. Is he nothing more than a money grubbing fear monger who likes to yell? This leads to the Alex Jones soundboard making prank calls.

Then, podcaster and filmmaker Jason Klamm joins EJC live via Skype. He hosts the Comedy on Vinyl and Dan and Jay’s Comedy Hour podcasts, and he also runs the StolenDress podcast network.  His first documentary feature film, Lords of Soaptown, chronicles the story of Freestyle Walking (or Soaping). EJC ask about the making of the film, how the “sport” started, where it’s going and more.

Up next, Samantha Scarlett brings on filmmakerJoel Gilbert. His mockumentary, Paul-Is-Dead, tells a shocking story: Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash in November of 1966 and replaced with a double! British intelligence, MI5, had forced the Beatles to cover up McCartneys death to prevent mass suicides of Beatle fans. However, the remaining Beatles tried to signal fans with clues on album covers and in songs. This is based on a popular conspiracy theory–yes some people think Paul McCartney is really dead.

Plus, the horrors of an incipient Trump presidency roll on and on, inside Chris’s head, David from Australia: justice, down under and Chris with the week’s headlines.

A full throttled EJC that touches every emotion, featuring Wild Domestic and acclaimed Nuclear Physicist-Lecturer, and UFO researcher, Stanton T. Friedman.

But first, the show starts with Eddie pointing out that Chris has been a constant contradiction on the show over the past few months. This is corroborated by a montage of Chris from last week shooting down numerous thoughts and conversations, as well as a sting of listener tribute song parodies.

Then, Matt Carlson of Wild Domestic calls in to talk about his new single, “Author”, and his upcoming EP, SINGULAR; slated to be released in early 2017. Wild Domestic’s writing, production and performance is a reflection of Carlson’s personal views and voice.

The show kicks off with a conversation on whether plants have feelings or not. Chris shuts it down pretty quickly because he’s a buzz kill and thinks he knows everything.

Then, Samantha Scarlette brings onIsaac Weishaupt of the popular IlluminatiWatcher.com blog and website.
