The History Channeler

Join self-certified, award-pining histographer Scott Pinkmountain each week as he spelunks the annals of history from before the Big Bang right up until this very moment right now, heroically embodying the philosophic truism: Comedy + Tragedy = Time. Broadcasting live from the historic Capital Defunct Breakfast Soda Building in Hollywood, CA (not to be confused with the Capitol Building in Hollywood, CA), Pinkmountain brings you the #1 rated The-History-Channeler-themed podcast with the help of producer “Silent” Syd Ballabad, superstar intern Chakra Kennedy-Onassis, super-not-star intern Higgenbaum, some nameless interchangeable “support” staff, and wealthy celebrity guests.

*Trigger warning: This issue speaks honestly and frankly about reality, which is very, very upsetting. 

Host Scott Pinkmountain returns from years in the wild to deliver the long-awaited solution to the seemingly intractable debate around the 2nd Amendment. Spoiler alert - it's not intractable. He solved it, quite elegantly and fairly, actually.

Episode 52 is the final episode of season one of THC. Thanks for an amazing year. Check back for updates on season 2 soon.

If you are just joining us, you definitely don't want to start here. Maybe go back to episode 2 and start there. For the rest of you, y'all rule.

There's so much going on here at THC centrale that we needed to devote an entire episode just to catching up. Lots of help from our contributing reporters. Zero (volunteer) help from Higgenbaum. 

Oct 12, 2016

Clearly, this was inevitable. Also, Happy Anniversary to us!!

Deep in the obscure taverns of histories past, and other times before this, we discover some things are always what they seem to be. Join us. Metaphorically.

For the first time ever, we un-story the tale of how the internet came to be. There had to be a first time for everything, and seeing as how the internet falls under the greater category of everything, this is a first time for that. So, don't say we never do things we haven't done before.

Things keep getting deeper and deeper into mosaic-like sky puzzle weaving here at THC. You're going to want to hear this podcast, in addition to watching it as well, also. Too.

Sep 14, 2016

This episode features: Mosaic weaving, business plowing, foregrounding, elision,  thought cancelling, malware, forbidden zones, egregious zones and ozones, as well as camel-toting, hoots, and reference to other dimensions. Thank you.

A little mini-episode to tide you over while Dr. Pinkmountain is "incapacitated" with some heavy lifting. For a direct link to the single from this episode, click here!

Dear Reader, we wanted to catch you up on a few of our "precious" staff members' goings on here at THC centrale. Remember Lil' Jaffy Bozo, our Twintern? He's currently serving a short sentence for collusion and assault in a private Turkish prison, which explains why our Twintern page is radically defuncted. Higgenbaum is totally fine, but totally useless, which is why he's been so "quiet" of late. And Shanda Kennering Onando decided she couldn't quite hack interning in the shadow of Chakra Kennedy Onassis, and wound up taking a job with the "good" people over at The Historier Channelerer.

If you are a hardcore THCer, you may have noticed that our sound quality was, shall we say, "compromised," last week. We apologize for this and have since discovered the cause of the lapse in our perfection. It was, of course, Higgenbaum. He touched a button that ruined our perfection, as usual. We've taken the precaution of wrapping Higgenbaum's hands in scotch tape to prevent him from touching any buttons from here on out.

Do you remember when things used to matter? Today we bring you a very special episode featuring the Unauthorized Autobiography of someone who was born long after that time. Dig deep into the pest with us, here, on The History Channeler, a podcast, which if you still don't know what that is, help us find out.

Aug 10, 2016

After a week of infirmy, we're back!! All will be explained in great detail, as our specialty is great details, which sets us apart from other history podcasts which feature great pauses, great intentions, great attempts, perhaps, but details? Eh. Like we always say: The History Channeler. Come for the details. Stay for the Greatness.

If you have not heard episode #39 (The Float Tank), we recommend listening to that first, then coming back here, ingesting 71microns of float tank greywater over the course of an unlimited amount of time, and retiring to your antechambre. Relax. It's only float tank juice.

Since Dr. Pinkmountain is mysteriously nowhere to be found this week, we've hastily arranged a showcase featuring this nation's most cherished stand-up historians with a very special guest emcee. Also, it's our 40th anniversary. As the traditional 40th anniversary gift is food, go ahead and treat us, feed us, and don't ever need us!

We know it's redundant to say, because every episode is special, but this is a special episode.  "How special?" you ask. It meets and surpasses the ethical standards for specialness established by the Ways and Means and Ways Committee of the Mishegas, CL Kiwanas Club parish #37B as denoted in the 1949 guidelines, signed by President, Clerk and Executioner, Harry Ed, Tub Man.

Here, at the nexus of historgraphical consciousness, we relegate all you thought you knew to the abyss and repopulate your mega-thoughts with dynamic flux data product, sponsored this week with actual advertisers. Prove us wrong.

We regard the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers to be the 2016 NBA Champions, basketball. Here is the story of their storied season and its grand finale.

Forgive the intrusion, but we're receiving a live incoming message on our top secret encoded skrillex machine and we had to share it with you in real time! If you're a regular listener, this is extremely exciting for us to bring this to you. If you're new to the show, this probably won't make too much sense to you. We're, uh, happy to have you here. Before listening to this episode, you may want to slowly introduce some light cardio into your daily routine, then build up to the point where you can handle at least 6 Nudjitsu attackers simultaneously (while blindfolded), then go back to episode one and listen to that on repeat until you feel you've memorized it well enough to recite it forward and backward from any point in the episode. Then we can talk. xo

Well, not exactly. You kind of have to listen to the episode to catch our wav.length. Get it? Higgenbaum doesn't. He is presently locked in the stairwell with a bucket stuck on his head. In other words, another average day for HGB. (CKO, however, is #1)

Jun 15, 2016

We return with a special "Sacred Entomology" episode where we do that. Scott wanted me to ask you not to tell Syd about some stuff that comes up in this episode, but it doesn't matter really because Syd doesn't listen to the show. Ever. Have I mentioned lately that CKO RULES!!!!!


Jun 8, 2016

Scott has not heard the final cut of this episode, and we'd like to keep it that way. Please help us hide the truth from "Dr." Pinkmountain. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

-Syd Ballabad.

There is a first for everything, and this is our first episode #33 1/3. It's ALSO our first mini episode. Expect other firsts as time continues to move in the direction we're mostly accustomed with it having moved.

Some things are better left unknown. Those that aren't, are featured here, on America's PodCast TM: History Channeler, The. All persons depicted in this channel are 100% real.
