Hi Weirdos!

Get ready to be history'd!  This week Ashley and Lauren sit down with Bret Correll and we're taking a look at crazy technological advancements throughout history.

Starting with the ancient Egyptians and how they set the stage for our entire modern world, the knowledge they gave us AND the vast amount of knowledge we may have lost from them and moving into the 1800's when a man named Nikola Tesla took some of the theories from the Ancient Egyptians and applied it to his study of harnessing electricity.

The insanity of pyramids, the invention of RAMPS, two-thousand year old power plants, coils, x-rays, famous feuds, the first robots, OCD, and general madness.

Hi Weirdos!  Welcome to week two of our Robo-discussion.  This week we are focusing on Artificial Intelligence-- Lauren teaches Ashley and her cousin Rachel all about where we are at today and where we are swiftly heading. 

We learn about self driving cars, cross country super trains, Sophia the robot, sex-bots, and so much more.  We even finish our discussion from last week about digitizing consciousness and what repercussions uploading our "soul" could have.

Boy, oh boy, is there anything a robo can't do?  Check out our Patreon page at www.patreon.com/keepitweirdpodcast for a newsletter and bonus episodes.

Greetings Weirdos!

Are you ready to hear the most infectious laugh you've ever heard??  This week Lauren and Ashley are joined by the adorable and super intelligent RACHEL THOMPSON as we chat about ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.  We talk Cyborgs, Androids, Bionic Applications, the art of Cyborgism, Robot Rights, Digitizing Consciousness, and we even try to answer the question "What is a soul?"  

Where did the idea of artificial intelligence begin?  How close are we to the reality?  What are the questions that need to be answered first?  How will it work?  What does the future of humankind actually look like?  Join us and find out!

Hi Weirdos,

Ashley here.  Upon the recent passing of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, I felt compelled to record an honest and open message about what it's like to deal with anxiety and depression and thoughts of suicide on a daily basis.

This is, hopefully, a message that will provide you with a sense of hope that you are not alone, that your feelings are valid, that your disease is real, and that depression doesn't define who you are as a person.

The number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255.  It's free and they are available 24/7.  They also have an online chat.

SCREWNAIL!  Eh, you'll get it eventually.  Welcome to Keep It Weird, the podcast for all things STRANGE AND UNUSUAL!! This week Lauren and Ashley are joined once again by TYLER SCHUELKE for Part Two of our second installment of our CULTS series!

We're going to be talking about brainwashing again and this week Lauren is going to be telling us all about the "Organization" aka "the O."  A political cult born and raised in Minneapolis in the 80's & 90's that is mysterious as hell, y'all and will have you shouting along with us "WHO IS THEO SMITH?!"

Ashley is going to be teaching us about political brainwashing and propaganda while using examples from our current Republican POTUS and the GOP.  (We get a little riled up but we promise that we do our best to keep it educational and not emotional)
