This Alfacast episode is a special treat for Dr. Lando & Mike Winner. We have both been huge fans of the The Higher Side Chat podcast from day one, because its host, Greg Carlwood is simply the best! His masterfully written intros alone make each episode worthwhile, but his authentic style, thorough preparation & amazing stable of brilliant guests bring it the rest of the way home.
Greg had a pretty stereotypical mid-western middle class life growing up in Arnold, MO. After spending K-11th grade in the local Catholic School pipeline, causing a fair amount of trouble along the way, St. Pius X High School in Festus, MO kicked him out on the first day of senior year and he’s still bitter about it. Eventually making it to the University of Missouri, Greg studied nothing, dropped out, and wandered into corporate retail management- captaining such notable ships as Great American Cookies, Sunglass Hut, & Gamestop. Knowing this was a low-paying road to nowhere, and not feeling right in Missouri; he moved to San Diego, CA in 2010 with a desperation plan to grow marijuana. After growing a few successful crops, but not knowing anyone who actually buys marijuana by the pound, he started another desperation venture: The Higherside Chats Podcast. It was a success.
“I’m just an average stoner that loves to dig deep down the rabbit hole and doesn’t like the direction the world is going.” – Greg
The Higher Side Chat
THC is an interview-based podcast where Greg Carlwood hosts conversations with the best researchers, authors, and experts on a whole host of unusual, suppressed, alternative, paranormal, occult, and all-around fringe topics.
As a fan of both podcasts and conspiracy culture, THC tries to raise the bar, take the best of both, and avoid some of the major annoyances many people have with them. THC has a host who is always familiar with the guests’ work, and a lengthy format which allows us to go as deep as we can.
