9/11:  Reality or Illusion?
Meeting # 3,633 - James Fetzer
​Speaker cofounded Scholars for 9/11 Truth in 2005, and claims that elements in the United States government and intelligence community were responsible for the September 11th attacks. Fetzer asserts that no commercial planes or hijackers were involved at any of the attack locations, that Flight 93 did not exist, and that guided missiles and/or explosives were instead used to destroy the buildings and create the appearance of a plane crash in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The Story Cycle – Americans in a Pandemic – Bicycling Route 66 Chicago to LA Collecting Covid Stories
Meeting # 3,635 -  Author  Michael Sean Comerford
Speaker states that:  "Yes! I bicycled 2,500 miles this year from snowy Chicago during the height of the pandemic in February and arrived 8 states later on Santa Monica Pier, in California. 

I asked more than 100 people Covid questions and tried to make the responses short – 5 minutes was perfect. Their views are AMAZING!

I’m aiming to finish a book by summer’s end. I’m seeking backers for a documentary."
