We then explore various theories people have put forward over the years to explain the crimes, and offer our own holistic take for good measure.

Note: This is actually the first part of a four hour recording we did, but after some discussion we decided to cut it down into more manageable 60 - 90 minute instalments. This means Aftermath pt ii will land next week and, most likely, there will be an Aftermath iii dropping the week after. Then we're back to the usual 2 week release schedule. This now means that instead of 10 or 11 X-Files episodes there will pr...

82 - The Belgian X-Files 5: The Pinon Affair

I'm joined again by @irc_nic as the Belgian Autumn begins.

 

Prince Albert and the Belgian business class over-promise and under-deliver in a trade deal with the Saudis. The resulting financial scandal exposes a vice network, blackmail operations and massive embezzlement. The Belgian establishment scrambles to cover it all up, but things take a dramatically darker turn when a psychiatrist files for divorce and his wife decides to share explosive secrets about extremely powerful people.

81 The Belgian X-Files 4: Chaos, Fascism and Solar Temples

81 The Belgian X-Files 4: Chaos, Fascism and Solar Temples

I'm joined by Belgian researcher Nic (@irc_nic) to talk about the post-war far-right in Belgium: what it believed, what it did, how it ensured loyalty, who profited...and who didn't.

They formed subterranean networks of mind-warping size that covertly influenced the course of modern Belgian history and planned everything from coups to terror attacks. Before us looms The Belgian Autumn.
