We look at what it takes to be a leader and how some people like Boris Johnson are blessed with a Teflon coat so nothing sticks. It is the court jester phenomenon. The antiestablishment. However the original idea of the Court Jester was an important part of the Sovereign's court as he was the only person allowed free speach to criticise the King (or Queen) in order to ground them and remind them they are not Gods. But being an object of ridicule themselves (with less perceived responsibility ...

There are multiple reasons why there is global hysteria over a common cold virus which the CDC states has a mortality under the age of 70 less than influenza. One possible one is media hysteria and social media hysteria forming an exploding narrative. This is then the popular belief through repetition by authority figures and anything else that dif…
 
New year, new questions, about naming ravens at the Tower of London, how glow sticks work, did pirates really walk the plank, and how come prawn cocktail-flavour Pringles bring out one listener in the sweats.

Everyone be very afraid as your civil liberties are eroded quicker than you could have possibly imagined due to lies and society and the way of life as we know it is destroyed. Forget Brexit deals there will be no economies to worry about. Maybe thats why an extension to the Brexit deadline was never asked for because in reality it was irrelevant. …

Current publicly available Office of National Statistics Data of excess mortality including Corona show where there was a late or no lock-down around the world there were high initial peaks of excess mortality but now there are only seasonally normal rises in respiratory infections and deaths. In areas where there was strict lock-down or there was …
 
Corona update: The rate of acceleration of corona deaths was slowing and flattening BEFORE the first lock down. Google mobility data show that as people stopped adhering to lock down and after it was lifted death rate fell exponentially opposite to the rise in mobility. In fact no human behaviour has affected the incidence of corona virus apart fro…
 
Jingle those bells, it's festive AMT392, with questions about Elf on the Shelf, fancy advent calendars, CONTENT WARNING: the episode may not be suitable for children, as it contains contains information about parental deceit w.r.t. Christmas logistics, plus a thoroughly researched passage about Adult Material depicting Jesus. Find out more about th…
 
We review Ivor Cummins and Mike Yeadon's data presentations and interpretations which almost conclusively via observational data show that corona virus had its peak and was on the way out BEOFRE the first lockdown and is now part of the flora and fauna with almost certain herd immunity. Young people cannot be causing any kind of a peak now because …
 
The statistics are clear. Excess deaths have remained unchanged since May/June this year. The PCR test applied on an industrial scale is unreliable with an unspecified high false positive rate so the more testing of even a healthy population the more false positives masquerading as cases will be found. The apparent rise in covid mortality has exact…
 
Content warning: animal cruelty. In AMT391, we hear about eviscerated rabbits, I'm A Celebrity food-kills, and a zoo in a deadly stunt. But there's some mysterious dog magic to compensate.

Why is there so much disagreement amongst the medical community about Corona Virus? The reason is that there is no clear specific risk along the lines that is being presented to us which can bear logical scrutiny. The average age of a corona virus death is 82.4 years old which is higher than the average life span i.e. the average person cannot expe…
 
Pop in your prosthetic fangs, spritz yourself with fake blood and turn off all the lights except for that annoying one that flickers - it's the Answer Me This Halloween Special!

Politicians continue to show a singular incompetence to manage any major situation due to media hysteria and a self serving need to stay in power resulting in abrogation of responsibility at every opportunity hiding behind the apron strings of unipolar Aspergian academics largely government funded. We are faced with further nonsensical all consumin…
 
In AMT389, questioneers need help with being heard through a mask, watermelon rind raining down from upon high, and understanding the financing of bin collection in Monaco.

Working from home at first glance releases stressed commuters from their daily grind both the stress and cost of it and gives parents a fighting chance to reliably pick up their kids. It may even give you a sense of autonomy especially with a micromanaging boss. It even in a lot of cases increases productivity. But the rest is all bad, in fact very…
 
Politicians are democratically elected and as such have to be competent at one thing only and that is to get elected. Unfortunately competence in public office is then a matter of chance or in fact even less than that. By that we mean that whenever there is a vested interest then it is likely that that the individual in that position will act accor…

We discuss how groups of animals function and how we differ to that in human society in the West. Animals function with power and hierarchy on a zero sum game. Humans in the West function through hierarchies of competence associated with different levels of authority in a non zero sum gameThe way your position in the hierarchy is applied is power a…
 
Victim role is poorly addressed by the current experts but defines one of the core pathologies of current times. It has been touted as not taking responsibility but this is just one of the manifestations. It is the lack of taking meaningful control of your life and anything that is not meaningful and of service to developing you as a person or your…
 
'Woke' has been in use for years and is an adjective used to signify that you have 'woken' to social injustice especially racism. It has rapidly accelerated to assume the synonym of political correctness. It is politically incorrect not to be 'woke'.It is for instance 'woke' to wear masks and 'woke' to take the knee . But what being 'woke' really m…
 
We discuss the concept of nobility both in terms of position in society but more importantly in terms of actions. Noble acts are those with a higher than average moral compass but it is the driver to this which determines whether the person is actually noble. For instance someone who is a binary thinker on the right sift of the Asperges spectrum is…
 
In AMT387 questioneers want to know how pregnancy tests work, how many nipples bears have, why there are salmon vending machines in Singapore, and how to deal with old friends who don't know you have amnesia.

We take a critical look at why racism exists, the idea of erecting and toppling statues and the ultimate irony of Oliver Cromwell the founding father of modern parliament and democracy in the UK. People are idolised by their contemporaries using the standards of the time. It is impossible to say whether that person would have behaved the same way a…
 
In evolutionary terms what is familiar and similar to us we like and what is unfamiliar or dissimilar we do not like. Generally this made sense because something would be familiar if it had not eaten us during our last encounter with it. We are tribal and have been hardwired to favour and relate to members of our own tribe which conferred an evolut…
 
Beloved listeners: as we've said in the past, AMT doesn't tend to discuss current events, as we know a lot of you turn to the show to give yourselves a brief break from dealing with reality. We hope you're holding up and finding ways to be productive. Meanwhile, here's AMT386, a hearty plateful of low-stress chat about topics including wedding snub…
 
Stress is a symptom associated with loss of control. We all experience it often on a daily basis. Trauma is the outcome when under severe stress either acutely or over a prolonged period of time. At least one third of the population have suffered trauma at some point in their lives. Trauma develops if the event or series of events that led to the s…
 
The Pandemic was on the way out just when panic started, in the case of the UK in early April. This was approximately replicated round the world. Ttherefore response strategy was irrelevant. Lock down or no lockdown made no difference to the duraton of the virus in our communities. Sweden which did not adopt lockdown and went for herd immunity only…
 
The government are starting to squabble amongst themselves as to how best approach this 'pandemic'. They have listened to the wrong experts, in fact it looks like they listened to the first expert who appears to have been some kind of in house on retainer expert Nial Ferguson who has a history of making rather odd projections and believed in his ad…
 
Ethnic minorities especially Black Caribbean males are at highest risk from the Corona Virus. The key here is obesity or comorbidity which is highest in Black males and in ethnic minorities with increased age. The UK has the most diverse and largest mix of these at risk groups in Europe. Corona Virus uses the ACE2 receptor to enter cells and this i…

The 1918 pandemic killed more people in a short period of time than all the wars of the 20th century combined. The last recorded case was in 1957. Lock down worked but only until the virus circulated the globe and came back for a second wave. Lock down was effective as it was highly fatal with no super spreaders , in other words lock down of a few …
 
This week statistics coming out of India show that seasonally adjusted mortality is less than normal. The reason is that road traffic accidents in India kill more people than coronavirus. A sobering thought which becomes even more sinister when you consider research published over the last few years that shows that economic collapse actually increa…
 
We show that dealing with a crisis and the effect a crisis has on you is directly related to your attitude and perception and in evolutionary terms those of us who have greatest difficulty dealing with every day life due to high innate anxiety can be most effective in a crisis. We also discuss how 'experts' are often the wrong people to advise on a…
 
We discuss evidence of vested interest of the large pharmas to have an illness for which every single member of society needs to have a vaccine and the fact that the Senate passed litigation indemnity for large pharmas with respect to vaccines. Lock dow is all about stress. Stress is about control. Control comes with routine and structure and plann…
 
We have said from the beginning that a media driven frenzy of panic is not the best way to influence the nation and in turn elected politicians who then listen to academics with unidimensional models that completely neglect equally if not important factors. The fact is that now a projected drop of GDP of 7.5% caused by the lockdown is going to kill…
 
Welcome! We hope you're doing OK. We're keeping AMT a pandemic-free pod, so if you're looking for content to take your mind off things for a bit, AMT384 can provide, with questioneers wondering why leopard print is considered sexy, how ghostwriters get paid, and what to do with their father's huge collection of old buildings and toasters.

There are many conspiracy theories but even more panic and media hype. The reality is that coronavirus world wide still has not killed as many as normal flu in one year in the UK alone. Given effective modern medical treatment (in this case ventilators) mortality should be about the same as normal flu. Conversely death and suffering from economic c…
 
The statistics of Corona virus indicate that where modern medical care is available then the mortality is no more than the common flu. But in contrast to usual flu those few seriously affected are more likely to need Intensive Care. The higher mortality rates in Italy may reflect an older population where a large proportion also are smokers as well…
 
AMT383's questioneers need to know what those funny things are called that you stick your face through at the seaside, how many lightbulbs there are in Las Vegas, how to say farewell to a hook-up, and why the corpse of utilitarian philosopher Jeremy Bentham is still keeping busy at university. Find out more about this episode at . Send us questions…
 
Corona Virus is in the same family as the common cold. The clear statistics are that mortality rate is not much higher than the flu and may be lower. Those vulnerable to serious illness are the elderly and immunocompromised as with all flus and medics involved in direct care who are likely to be exposed to much higher doses. The main difference is …
 
Harvey Weinstein has finally been convicted. We discuss the paradox of how a bountiful capitalistic permissive society rapidly becomes unequal giving rise to resentment and identity politics and ultimately to the Me Too campaign. A permissive tolerant society is not necessarily the surroundings in which humans will flourish because the main predict…
 
In AMT382, we hear from questioneers concerned about their friend's expenditure on life coaches, the ethics of placing fake animals on wildlife tours, disposal of an unwanted Book of Mormon, and scattering a grandparent's ashes on someone else's property.

Humans like all animals are hard wired to survive and where life is on the line the quickest response is reflex or instinct which short circuits rational thought. This is the Amygdala Hijack. Most of human behaviour is driven by emotion and has little logic behind it. In addition to this we are tribal and are programmed to respond to structure hier…
 
Humans like almost all living organisms are tribal. We are therefore hard wired to function in relatively small close knit groups of very similar people. Nature therefore makes us like this and it is biologically good for us both mentally and physically. Modern society is almost exclusively focused on instant gratification which by definition is th…
 
We discuss Royal Duty versus self interest. Megan is apparently suffering from anxiety and trauma. We look at just how common trauma really is an reveal some startling statistics that suggest modern daily life is not suited to humans. We are anachronisms in a society of our own making. Andy posits it is as simple as making choices. Theo explains th…
 
In AMT381, questioneers are worrying about lost jewels, stinking out the office, dad doing the gardening in the nude, and what happens to trains in Thomas The Tank Engine when they die.

There are 4 needs in life. Air, Food, Water, Shelter, but for a happy life you also need close relationships. This is why loneliness is toxic both mentally and physically and why the wrong relationship can be catastrophic. Women are being forced down an androgynous politically correct path just as men are being emasculated by toxic masculinity with…
 
Christmas time is a risky time for relationships despite it being a family focused time. We discuss New Year's resolutions and how they set you up to fail and instead what to replace them with. Failure is a natural part of life the key is insulating yourself from the effects of failure and learning from it.…
