This week Ken grabs a pizza at Comet Ping Pong with returning guest author and musician Nikolas Schreck to dissect the ever-rising tide of modern conspiracy theory. We look at some of the misconceptions of the more Occult and Left Hand Path theories, as well as discuss Nikolas’ own experiences as a victim of the Satanic Panic.

This week: Nikolas’ new conspiracy research group OASIS, Why Nikolas is still the object of conspiracy, the dark side of modern conspiracy culture, and much more.

Nikolas Schreck Bio:

Nikolas Schreck is an American singer/songwriter, musician, author, and filmmaker.

Acclaimed by Austria‘s Evolver magazine as “already a legend in his lifetime‘‘, singer-songwriter, author, and film-maker Nikolas Schreck’s initiatory application of music, ritual, and theater formally began in 1984 when he returned to the West from a life-changing spiritual pilgrimage in Egypt to found the shapeshifting musical ensemble Radio Werewolf, a nine-year sonic magic operation which concluded in 1993.

After pioneering early Los Angeles Gothic and deathrock with the band’s first incarnation, Radio Werewolf’s European phase was hailed by Christopher Walton of the band Endura for “simultaneously pre-empting and giving birth to the dark-ambient and ritual-industrial scene of the 1990s.”

Before embarking on his current solo career, Schreck has previously collaborated musically with Zeena, John Murphy, Kingdom of Heaven, and Sir Christopher Lee, whose first album he produced. Schreck’s books include The Manson File: Myth & Reality of an Outlaw Shaman, Demons of the Flesh: The Complete Guide to Left-Hand Path Sex Magic (written with Zeena Schreck), The Satanic Screen, and Flowers from Hell. He is the director of the 1989 documentary Charles Manson Superstar and has appeared in several films, including Mortuary Academy and Usher.
