In this interview we discuss Flatley’s new book, New Age Grifter: The True Story of Gabriel of Urantia and his Cosmic Family. “Gabriel of Urantia has spent the last three decades weaving together his belief system, a tapestry of Eastern spirituality, Born Again Christianity, and New Age doggerel,” Flatley writes. “In a compound near the Mexican border, his disciples tend the garden, take classes, and serve their guru while they wait for the end of the world.” You can order it here.

OK, that should be a sufficient introduction to the interview. Now that you’ve got a giant cup of coffee in front of you, for those reading this morning anyway, click below.
