      Ignorant Radio is an experiment in unrestrained discussion about any and all topics relevant to the progress of mankind. Our mission is to spark debate and discussion among all listeners by addressing issues that many individuals across the country and the globe may or may not see, and/or may or may not want to talk about.

 

      Rather than aligning ourselves as a group with left-wing political groups, right-wing political groups, anarchism, fascism, socialism, etc., we align ourselves as a group with humanity, the increasingly large and confused group of warring, conflicting, jealous, fearful, and prideful creatures. We hope that by addressing the symptoms of these issues, we may help to alleviate some of them.

 

      If these goals prove to be unsuccessful or futile, we will at least have succeeded in spending our Monday nights laughing and having provocative and educational discussions with close friends.

IGNORANT RADIO is the product of a remarkable phenomenon of what some may call "coincidence", others "serendipity", others "manifest destiny", and still others "hindsight". Whatever the fuck it was, it happened and here we are. Here's the story of IGNORANT RADIO...

 

Paul M McAlarney, an avid writer and independent filmmaker, met Blake Rickerson during the casting call in July 2012 for BLOODY HAMMER FILMS' first feature film, HONKY HOLOCAUST, written and directed by Paul. Blake and Paul became fast friends and recognized one another's outspokenness (hence the title of the anti-racist film, "Honky Holocaust"), defiance of authority, and open-mindedness. Before long, Paul and Blake found themselves engaged in long, hyper-tangential conversations on spirituality, philosophy, capitalism, government, fascism, pharmaceuticals, racism, history, religion, and the list goes on and on.

 

While casting for HONKY HOLOCAUST continued, Paul met Dave Sullivan and Al Gorithm, who were both cast as Neo-Nazi soldiers in the film. During long sets and behind-the-scenes interview sessions, Paul, Dave, Blake, and Al all recognized one another's insightfulness and mutual habit of questioning what most others take as "fact". But IGNORANT RADIO was not yet born there.

 

Through social media, namely facebook, Paul, Blake, and Dave became deeply engaged in discussion after discussion, often ignited by an inflammatory post made by Blake. The "two white guys" (Dave and Paul) would often take the bait and find themselves involved in long, heated discussions following Blake's initial post. During one of these long, borderline-militant threads, Paul suggested they start a podcast and recommended that they include technology guru Al Gorithm to help with the technical side of the podcast. Al conceded and planning began.

 

Only two weeks before recording for the first episode began, Paul was introduced to Glen Harnish through Paul's long-time best friend Greg LaVoie. Glen and Paul wound up standing on the sidewalk in Brookline, MA for over an hour, discussing spirituality, philosophy, filmmaking, writing, pop culture, and politics. Glen asked to be mildly involved in one or more of the projects Paul was overseeing and just over a week later, Glen found himself at the last unrecorded IGNORANT RADIO meeting and was officially invited onboard as a regular member. Glen offered to host the first episode and the rest is history in the making.
