|DJ Dan - Shutting Down the Man|
Released on June 8th, 2006, this was the third DJ Dan released. It was hosted on Monster.com (the site responsible for the Hanso Foundation Careers website) through simple navigation a link to the podcast can be found. The topic at hand was genetic engineering and the fall of individuality, and his guests were Sam from Cleveland, Lou from Chicago, Richard from Alexandria, and an unnamed assailant who gives Dan a threatening message.
Announcer: Coming to you live, from the part of you that refuses to lie down. You're listening to DJ Dan, shutting down The Man.
DJ Dan: No. No. No. No, Tonya. Darwinian evolution is a lie. Intelligent design is a bigger lie to make evolution look like less of a lie. I’m sick of it and I’m shutting it down. Sam from Cleveland: Go!
Sam: Uh hi, DJ Dan. I’m a fan, but are you saying evolution is fake? Like, birds don’t come from dinosaurs?
DJ Dan: Uhh no, I’m saying there’s more to it than that. That the mega science corporations, they want us to believe that the unnatural work they’re doing, their genetic engineering is just part of Ma Nature’s master plan. Take the Hanso Foundation. If you’re a loyal listener, Sam you know I have issues with this bunch of crazy monkeys. Now I’m aware some of the stuff we talk about on this show is a little fuzzy around the edges. But the Hanso Foundation, these guys are as real a threat as we’ve seen. I’ve been saying it for years, but now, the hacker Persephone, she’s serving us all up a batch of proof pudding. The Hanso Foundation, you’ve seen their ads. They’re bringing us a better future, science is gonna save the world, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And I say: don’t believe it.
Sam: Oh. Why not?
DJ Dan: Why not? Definitely not because company founder Alvar Hanso, an arms dealer with ties to the original atom bomb, refuses to release any of true details about any of his programs. Oh, definitely not because their letch spokesman Hugh McIntyre refuses to say one word about their alleged human rights violations. No. Because every day we become more and more advanced, we get closer to the end these Hanso Foundation perverts say they’re gonna prevent. And genetic engineering, you know what that is? Changing our babies DNA to give them blue eyes instead of brown or to give them the knowhow to juggle flaming bowling pins in the cradle. It’s all a lie. Do you know what happens when you start shuffling your genes around? No. Nobody does. But I’ve seen those steroid cases, guys whose growth plates have turned back on, they’re Neanderthals. There are consequences to our actions, people. Don’t you see? They want us all to look the same. To be ashamed of who we are and where we’re from. Because once they’ve done that to us, once they’ve let us just give away our individuality, they’re gonna swoop down from the sky and take over without a fight. Yeah, we got Lou from Chicago. Deep dish Louie, convince me otherwise, c’mon.
Lou: Hey Dan. I think you’re overreacting. I mean, look, I have a birth mark or two, one looks like a potato, the other looks like Italy.
DJ Dan: The boot or Sardinia?
Lou: Actually, Tuscany.
DJ Dan: Good one.
Lou: But I’ve always wished they could be more like tattoos. Couldn’t we play with the DNA and give our kids some like cool birthmarks?
DJ Dan: So what are you talking about, maybe a family crest, a cute little bird, how about a barcode so we can keep track, huh? Is that what you want?
DJ Dan: Well congrats, Louie. You just made my top three: dumbest thins I've ever heard! Shutdown! Who’s next?
Richard: Richard, from Alexandria, Virginia.
DJ Dan: Tricky Dick from Alexandria.
Richard: Listen, Dan. I heard what your last caller said about the tattoos, and I think people are already doing that, but with animals.
DJ Dan: Uhh, what do you mean, Dick?
Richard: I mean I was diving off the Great Barrier Reef last year, and we came upon this shark, right. It’s reefed, things toast and on its tail is like a, well not a tattoo, it’s like a black octagon with some word on it that starts with a D. Things pretty rotted away.
DJ Dan: Dick. Dick. Dick, Dick, Dick, Dick. Tell me you got pictures of that shark.
Richard: Of course. I can send em right over.
DJ Dan: You know what I think, Dick? I think you’re ConspiraSpy of the Month! We gotta take a break. More with Dick and..
Tonya: Wait a minute, Dan.
DJ Dan: What?
Tonya: I’ve got a caller here, says he has to talk to you right now.
DJ Dan: Really? Well, what are you waiting for Tonya? Put him back on, come on. Caller you’re shutting down the man.
Unnamed: You’re going to want to be more careful, Dan.
DJ Dan: Uh, okay, and who am I speaking with?
Unnamed: You think you can just keep taking shots at the Hanso Foundation with no fear of retaliation?
DJ Dan: Once again, who are you and why are you calling me?
Unnamed: You think you’re safe to smear good people because you broadcast from different locations? Like the second floor motel room you’re in right now, off of the 5 Freeway. Driving your green Jeep Compass, license plate --
DJ Dan: --Hey, hey, hey easy there little troll. Hey! What’s this about?
Unnamed: It’s about your fragile life.
DJ Dan: Oh my god, come on.
Unnamed: How easily it can be exposed, the way you claim to expose others.
DJ Dan: Okay, that’s enough. That’s enough.
Unnamed: How easily your address--
DJ Dan: Okay, that’s enough!
Unnamed: --and your real name--
DJ Dan: Hey. Hey I’m not gonna--
Unnamed: --and where you really work, and your wife’s--
DJ Dan: That's Enough!!!! Hey! You one of their goons? Is that what this is about? Well you can tell your boss I ain’t backing down. This is not the first threatening call I’ve gotten, buddy, not by a long shot. My real name is DJ Dan, my location is inside your web of lies and my job is shutting you down.
Unnamed: ..Dan, you’ve been warned.
DJ Dan: Wow. Did you hear that Tonya? I guess we’ve been warned. Well, that was special. If you didn’t think there was proof before, there you have it folks. DJ Dan, I guess I'd better name a successor.
Announcer: You're listening to DJ Dan, shutting down The Man.
