I thought it might be interesting to have a thread where one can post their findings on the backgrounds of various public figures who are out in the forefront researching topics and promoting their research or their cause to the public. Under the current climate, it's important to vet individuals to get a better understanding of who they are, where they come from and who's funding them. Uncovering this information is not always easy, so this would be a good place to post what you find if you happen to spend time vetting a person and you want to share your revelations.

I prefer we not turn this into a witch hunt. I'm looking for serious and intelligent discussion. Through past research I have come across some eyebrow raising information. Below is a discussion that started on a different thread that became the inspiration for this topic. Anyone can add material/content to this thread, don't wait for me to do it....otherwise you might be waiting a long time :whstl: This is a community thread where all can bring forward their discoveries.

SCOTT WOLTER- FORENSIC GEOLOGIST/AMERICA UNEARTHED



And maybe this is part of the point I'm sensing and trying to make but in a different way...something just isn't quite right is it?....It's kinda like Scott Wolter, America Unearthed.....comes out of no where...but alas his claim to notoriety is being called upon to investigate the 9-11 damage at the Pentagon. Suddenly, he's in business, opens up shop and not long afterwards he's hosting his own show on History Channel known as America Unearthed as a forensic geologist...hmmm. Oh, did I mention his show receives government funding?....lol

I didn't know he receives government funding, and I'm not sure why he would, but I think his shows draw some sorely-needed attention to a lot of out-of-place archaeology in North America. Even if there is some ulterior motive, it seems to me like a case of "no publicity is bad publicity."

I didn't either! Quite some time ago I felt the need to take a closer look at who Scott was and his background. What an interesting rabbit hole that turned out to be. Above is pretty much in a nutshell what I uncovered. Along the way I came across a blogger who seemed to think Scott was worth researching himself and that is where I learned about the government funding. And this is my point in starting this thread....Some of these guys come out of nowhere and the purpose to their task seems to be to control the narrative. So what is it they're looking for? Scott has taken a personal interest in the Knights Templar coming to America so there's a potential clue. But, back to the blogger...his name is Jason Colavito and I think you'll find this article most interesting on Scott Wolter and where some of his funding is coming from. It was pretty hysterical to watch Scott dish the government on some of his shows already knowing he was getting government funding....it doesn't make sense. You may find other articles done by Jason to be equally as informative. Do take the time to read through some of the comments below the article....you'd be amazed at what tidbits you can find!

"I’ve obtained documents from Minnesota Film and Television (MNFilmTV), a nonprofit that distributes public money and private matching funds on behalf of the state of Minnesota, which reveal that Committee Films, the production company behind America Unearthed, has accepted more than $190,000 for diffusionist documentaries accusing scientists, historians, and the government of lying about the history of America, including $112,740 for America Unearthed itself. Since MNFilmTV is a public-private partnership, 50% of that money came directly from taxpayer dollars."- Jason Colavito

It was pretty hysterical to watch Scott dish the government on some of his shows already knowing he was getting government funding....it doesn't make sense.

Millions of Americans get federal funding one way or another, and the government is a very diverse and complex institution, so it would depend on who is funding the show and what the idea is behind that. What the blog says is that federal money coming into the state of Minnesota is distributed by the non-profit organization MNFilmTV to America Unearth's production company for "diffusionist documentaries," which means documentaries which promote culture. Many countries subsidize cultural works (whether television shows, music, literature, art, or other things), and in many ways the US in particular is already culturally dominating many other parts of the world through things like music and Hollywood, so that this is subsidized by the government is not surprising to me.

In other words, either the federal government or the state of Minnesota has allocated funds to subsidize culture, and one recipient of these funds is America Unearthed. The fact that the show then turns around to accuse "the government" of a cover-up might be ironic in a way but I don't think it's necessarily indicative of America Unearthed having some kind of hidden, perverse agenda.

The worst criticism I can find online of Wolter himself is that he apparently claims to have an "honorary" master's degree when his university only has him listed as having earned a bachelor's degree, in geology. That also does not mean a lot to me because I happen to agree with him that academia is heavily controlled and the mainstream standard for being "well-educated" is often predicated upon how accurately someone can parrot back what is conventionally taught in major universities.

I take America Unearthed as informative entertainment. If he starts talking about and showing things on there that I've never seen before, I take that as a starting point for launching my own investigation into things. But a lot of the artifacts and stories he covers have already been investigated by others in some depth.

Do you think there would be anything significant about the Knights Templar having come to America, in regards to this show, DF?



Ahh... I did more reading on that blog page and apparently this is state funding that is meant to encourage people to produce their films and documentaries in Minnesota. So that's where the cultural subsidizing in coming into play, because Minnesota is apparently subsidizing these things for its own purposes. So it's not far removed from seeing commercials on TV to vacation in Alabama (if they air those where you live), or the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee, or the incentives states like Virginia and Texas invest in, in order to try to entice more businesses to relocating to their state. It's funding that stems from an effort to build up the cultural (and business) importance of Minnesota, and America Unearthed is only one of the shows benefiting from that. If we saw what other programs are benefiting from it I have a feeling that it would be a diverse list.

I like this idea. Thanks for starting this.

I've been coming across the idea recently in different places that the 'New World' was already known and the Templars were regularly visiting, getting gold, and secretly bringing it back to Europe. The videos being posted by Elen that are done by the NewEarth lady show many wonderful images of artifacts found here that 'shouldn't be here'.

I came across something recently that belongs on this thread but I have to go back for details as I can't properly recall them at the moment.

Yes, there is a lot of history in that. Plenty of ancient civilizations already knew of the Americas and left artifacts here, from the Sumerians or Babylonian who left cuneiform tablets that have been found in various places in the US, to the Romans, Carthaginians and Welsh, and later the Vikings and Templar. That Columbus is still considered the guy who first "discovered" the Americas (where people were already living) is pretty ridiculous.

I think La Rochelle in France is where the templar were actually importing what they were bringing in from the Americas, and then using it to finance things that irritated the Church and its puppet rulers enough to result in the massacre of the templars. The genocide of the Cathars that gave them shelter is how modern France gained all of its southern territory, by killing something like 1/3 to 1/2 of the population, men, women and children. There's a lot of information about this kind of thing online.

Yes, please post anything you have. I mean who has time to research all these people?? I'm curious what others discover and think about some of the well-known personalities....Are they credible, misguided or paid shills? Who are we to believe?

I honestly don't know what to think of Scott. I thought it was odd I had difficulty uncovering any information on him pre 9-11. I find it hard to believe the Pentagon would call on just anyone to do investigative research on a disaster of the likes of 9-11, without some type of solid background. So the fact that they called on Scott, someone who appears to have no trace of activity in his field, seems rather odd. Shortly after 9-11 he opens up his own business and not too long after that he suddenly has his own t.v. show, America Unearthed. It's possible there's holes in my research. The entire scenario had me wondering if there's a hidden agenda here and/or could Scott be a 'plant'? I'm no history buff and have no way of knowing if what he says is even factual. Most people are in the same position. We rely on others who are specialists in their fields to promote accurate information.

And though I don't keep up with the America Unearthed series, I have watched several episodes. Interesting enough, on one of the shows, Scott specifically was refused access to a piece of private property while local hunters were given carte blanche. He mentioned this had happened to him before. Could it be these landowners know something about his background leading them to not cooperate?

I don't have time to verify every factoid covered in many of these historical series. So though I may watch with interest, I know there may be more to the story than what's being promoted or the entire story could be completely manufactured and falsified. I remember watching a series about America long ago on the History Channel and I had noticed several errors in what was being reported. I waited til the end so I could scroll through the credentials and I got a good laugh when I saw Bank of America had funded the program. It just said it all. Unless you make a project out of studying some of these topics, by interviewing researchers yourself and visiting various historical locations, you have no way of fact checking what's being reported. Additionally the media outlets have been fully taken over eluding to the possibility that most programs have hidden agendas unknown the the general public.

I do get the feeling Scott is looking for something in particular in regards to the Knights Templar and the show may be a plea for the public to cooperate. He might even know the specifics of what he's looking for and just needs the right artifact to verify the findings revealed within the likes of some ancient text. Pure speculation on my part, so I'm just putting it out there to see what others might think.

From a business stand point a show like Wolter's is a safe bet as they are hot items and of interest to many people. My friend and I watch that show primarily to get angry at Scott for most of his theories! Greg in particular gets so hot its entertaining for me just to watch his reaction.

Anyway, it is not the only show that to me has question marks. Some of the beast hunter shows and big foot shows are obvious fake and although I don't remember the name of it that one with the Moneymaker guy in my opinion is one that seriously needs vetting. What baffoons !

If I remember correctly he was called on to investigate the fire damage of concrete at the Pentagon.

Check this out:
"Shortly after the Sept. 11 attack on the Pentagon, among the first civilians called to the site to help the military was geologist Scott Wolter of Chanhassen.

As a forensic concrete expert, Wolter was asked to examine the heat damage to columns and beams caused by the crash of American Airlines Flight 77 and the subsequent fire at the Pentagon.

"It was amazing," said Wolter, who said he's done more than 5,000 investigations on concrete. "They knew what had happened. They knew a plane hit it. But was there a bomb on it? Was it just the jet fuel? Was it something else?"

Wolter, who once helped Las Vegas police identify a murder victim simply by the impression her body left on the cement she was encased in, points out his connection to the Pentagon and the 9/11 investigation in order to establish his credentials as a scientist and investigator.

Don't you find this a little strange?

Here's the perfect example where reading the comments at the end of articles can offer beneficial insight. I was skimming over one of Jason's Colavito's articles when I skimmed down to the comments and a poster said this:

"The Other J.

Matt Mc, were you the one in the comments a while back talking about going through propaganda techniques used on shows like America Unearthed and Ancient Aliens?

In another life I worked in cable advertising, and watching cable programming to make sure certain commercials were coming down at the right times was part of my job, and most of what I watched was news. It was that weird pressure for ad dollars that content providers succumbed to that eventually moved me to leave it (that and the kind of people who populate the industry, which is where the pressure comes from - -think Glengarry Glen Ross).

One of the strangest experiences I ever had, though, was watching CNN to make sure the spots were coming down, and seeing them interview my dad. Neither of us knew this was going to happen -- we weren't in the same city. CNN just happened to be doing a report on the industry my dad worked in (brewing), and went to his place of work because it's a landmark (largest six pack in the world). He was the day supervisor, so they interviewed him."

Yeah that was me.

I have worked in cable news since the mid 90's. I worked as a online editor for CNN forever and then went to a the State Dept working for a govt funded Arabic News Station, after leaving there I freelanced at CSPAN, FOX, CNN, and Bloomberg.

I am two years out of the news biz except for a few last minute freelance gigs. I left out mostly because I hated the standard practices. Since I worked in the editing of clips and editing of "live" talk programs I learned and studied a lot of techniques of how to manipulate things to make it fit into needed points of view.

Wanting to explore more, I found where the poster Matt Mc made his original comments:

"Matt Mc

I thought I wanted to chime in on how subliminal techniques are used in AMERICA UNEARTHED, more so that I have seen in other like programs (including ANCIENT ALIENS). Hopefully it is noticed by viewers as a program progresses that Wolter reasserts his theories many times, each time he presents his theories he asserts them as more defined. While I don't have direct access to a program right now I will give a brief demonstration below (The times are mine and they are needed to show how this form of subliminal suggestion works, for sake of simplicity I will break down only the statements that are being subliminally suggested over a 3 minute period) and the topic is completely off base (I will use Jason's Unicorn for this)


00:15:00 - (receives a email and then calls someone) I have just received something interesting, Mr Norse seems to have discovered some strange stone marking on his property indicating a Unicorn was buried there.

00:45:00 – (now in a car- voice over) We are heading out to the southern neck to investigate the strange Unicorn drawing that Mr Norse found on his property. As you know I have been investigating the truth behind Unicorns for year, I have shown that at other locations the Templar raised unicorns for years after traveling to the Americas in the early 1300'.s

01:00:00 (exiting car) We are hear to talk to Mr Norse about the stone marking he has discovered on his property showing the possible location of a buried Unicorn on his property.

01:10:00 (Intro to Mr Norse) Well Hello Mr. Norse, so you found a possible clue to the burial of a Unicorn? I have been studying the connection to the unicorns and the templars for years? You may have the proof I have been looking. Despite my well documented claims and the well documented Horned Circle found on the Detroit Stone main stream researchers refuse to believe that the templar came to the America's to raise unicorns. This may be the proof we are looking for.

01:40:00 (Talking to Mr Norse) According to these pictures it appears we have the proof that we are looking for, that unicorns where raised in secret in America by Templars

01:55:00 (voice over) We are heading over to the site that the templars directions to their unicorn burial grounds.

02:05:00 (Talking to Mr. Norse while approach alleged site) We there it is. Look at the fauna around here, as a geologist I can see why the Templars raised unicorns around here.

02:15:00 (Talking to Mr. Norse) Well here were are, so this is the stone that has the engraving leading us to the unicorn burial site. Did you know in the early 1300's the templars had to flee Europe because they where being persicuted by the Catholic church because of raising unicorns, It makes sense they came to America to continue raising them since the food supply here is perfectly suited for unicorns.

Now this is example is little over a minute and I am being sparing about the mentions of Unicorns, I am given episode of America Unearthed you will find a mention of what ever Wolter is trying to assert about every ten seconds, bouncing back forth between voice overs and on camera reasserting his position from shot to shot. What is being done here is subjecting the viewer to a progression of statements that cause the viewer to be more and more comfortable with the given assertion no matter how up surd it may be.

Now there is a difference in frequency used in programs like this also. At the beginning of the program it is aggressively used and is more speculative (ie. Theories says, people claim, ect...) and becomes less and less frequent as the program goes on, going from a mention every ten to fifteen seconds to once a minute. The one exception to this is returning from breaks in the program where it is again asserted every the to fifteen seconds for the first minute or so. Now also over the course of the program the claims go from speculation to almost assumed fact.

As I said before these a common techniques used in Documentary filmmaking to help the filmmakers to establish and convince there viewers that the facts are presented within are without speculation and are fact. America Unearthed uses this style or propaganda to the extreme both with the subject matter of the given program and with the fact the “mainstream” science is hiding or withholding facts from the public.

I only bring this up because of how aggressive this technique is used. I, as someone who works in the documentary field, find it upsetting that they producers and Wolter feel the need to be this aggressive with its use. It shows to me that they also understand that the facts they are using are fallible at best and instead have to use tried and true propaganda techniques to promote their agenda.

Thank you for that very clever illustration of exactly how this technique works. National Geographic's Atlantis documentary from a few years back did the same thing, asking questions and later restating the questions as "facts."

Matt Mc
3/19/2013 09:06:00

The style is commonly used in the "fringe" shows, I notice it all the time on Ghost Hunters, UFO hunters, and other paranormal and unexplained shows. Ancient Aliens does it a lot but there are is a question involved "you must ask yourselves" "Or one could believe" which in my mind keeps using this format as technique as opposed to propaganda.

The other show I have noticed this used in a more propaganda form is Nostradamus Effect and the Doc called Mayan Apocalypse, which was about a Rock on an island and it supposed relationship to the Mayan calendar (I would love to have a follow up since 12/21/12 has passed) .

I have only seen a Little of Holy Grail in America but I would be willing to bet that it is also full of the same editing technique. I would bet looking at Committee films online CF reels, that this is the only style of presentation they know how to do since they only do Alternative History docs and commercial advertising. I am not sure what there first doc was but I am sure they used that style in that doc, History liked it, said something like deliver more like this and we will buy it and that was that. No need to challenge themselves or change any techniques. Overall it is a pretty simple show with the exceptions of the recreations, which are most likely done to inflate budget or to meet certain requirements provide my History Channel. Even then they are crudely filmed (I mean poorly lit and composed, and heavily reliant on color correction to provide the stylized look )and are all filmed over a short period of time (most likely a two week period for the whole session)."

And though I knew nothing of what was being discussed above, I often walked away from the show wondering what the agenda might be....after reading this, it makes me want to know even more.

It's certainly interesting that they called him up, but what also stands out to me is that he apparently was not convinced that the plane and fire alone did not cause whatever he saw with the concrete.

I'm not sure what the process was like for calling in the very first investigators at the Pentagon, but there was a similar situation at the WTC. There, either before or contemporaneous with FEMA setting up their investigation, they had a team called BPAT (Building Performance Assessment Team) come in and look at the debris that had been collected at a site before it was to be destroyed, and this team consisted of volunteers from the ASCE. One of these men (Dr. Abdolhassan Astaneh-Asl of the University of California at Berkeley) complained before Congress about how little he was allowed to look at but trusted that later investigative teams might have a better look. When it became apparent that this would not be the case he later went to the Associated Press and claimed that the official investigation teams were involved in fraud or a cover-up, and that he had been running computer simulation after computer simulation that only proved that the planes and fires alone could neither bring down either Twin Tower building nor any other NY skyscraper up to code, leading him to believe that the buildings were not up to code and that the engineers were trying to cover this up. (He didn't seem to have considered that the buildings were demolished.)

I don't know what was going on at the Pentagon, but if they also called upon a civilian engineering or science organization to provide volunteers for a preliminary look then that might explain why Wolter showed up. Otherwise I have no idea why they would have done so and it doesn't really seem to fit with the official investigations, especially since the official investigations of course did not ask such questions as "was there a bomb strapped to the plane?" as Wolter wonders.

Thanks for bringing that up, DF. If we found out what capacity he was serving there (whether as a volunteer on behalf of some civilian organization or otherwise) and how he was chosen in particular I'm sure it would shed a lot more light on that, but I also doubt it would be readily available info online unless someone else has already looked that deep into it.



Edit: The second bit you posted above really sounds to me like whoever wrote it has an axe to grind with the actual material Wolter is presenting. I'm sure not every idea he throws out there is accurate, but neither is what Wolter shows in his series akin to unicorns. There may be some comparison to Ancient Aliens in the fact that the Ancient Aliens series is (in my opinion anyway) on the right track with its basic premise, but it is not produced as a scientific documentary but rather as entertainment and so its arguments are not as solid as its production techniques are.

There is plenty of evidence with or without Wolter, that the Vikings and other Scandinavians were here before Columbus (this is actually not such a huge issue historically because it is pretty well accepted already that the Vikings beat Columbus here anyway), and also evidence that the Templar, Carthaginians, Welsh, Romans, Sumerians and/or Babylonians, Egyptians, Chinese, Hebrews, Minoans, and of course all of the various "Native American" tribes, were here before Columbus (though not in that order :p ). The evidence is different for each of those cases but arguments can easily be made for any of them, and the only arguments against such ideas are often just that ancient ships would not have been able to cross the Atlantic, when this has already been disproved in modern times with recreations of the ancient ships.

Anyway lots of people are going to upset with America Unearthed simply because they don't feel comfortable with any changes to the historical narrative they have grown up believing, and these kinds of people are going to be attacking Wolter just to discredit what he says. But like I said, regardless of Wolter, the stuff he shows on the television program is most of the time already well-documented and he is just bringing attention to it from a wider audience in the same way as Ancient Aliens just brings attention to many pre-existing theories. These shows don't go into the amount of evidence that someone serious about this kind of thing might like them to, but it's for entertainment television and that has to be remembered too.

Ya you would think the Pentagon would have called upon someone who had extensive experience, but the way I read the remarks is he built his career off of that event....I find that unusual considering how significant 9-11 was to American history. That's what has me wondering if he's a 'plant'. Is this how they control the narrative? You can see how complex this gets when researching someone....who has time to do this....

Maybe he helped build his later career off of his role there but he must have been doing some kind of related work at the time (related to forensic concrete investigation as mentioned above), I would think, unless that was fabricated too and the theory is that his whole identity is invented as a forensic concrete specialist just to put him on a TV show about Ancient America. It seems to me that if all of that was fabricated then they might as well have picked a more relevant profession to have jump started him with, than a forensic concrete investigator.

The only thing I can compare with, in terms of him looking at the Pentagon damage as a civilian, is the BPAT civilian volunteers from the ASCE that I mentioned above. In that case at least one of them blew the whistle on the lack of investigation, which I don't think would qualify as working for "them." Wolter similarly is making suggestions that there was a bomb either in addition to or instead of a plane, by the quote above. So I can't see how that would fit into working with them either. The connections may be there to indicate that he might be compromised, but the context indicated by what he is actually saying is not consistent with that as far as I can see.

Here's where it just got weird for me...that example I showed about the dialogue Matt Mc gave from Scott's show on the topic of unicorns might be something I can shed light on......Supposedly in my past life as Mary Queen of Scots I thought I had read I was responsible for helping make the Unicorn the national animal for Scotland. As noted in this article posted below, there were tapestries in our home in Stirling Castle known as The Mystic Hunt of the Unicorn. I can share with you there is someone close to me, who I believe is the reincarnation of my mother Marie de Guise and she just so happens to have a picture of a Unicorn hanging in her bedroom along with medieval decor throughout her house(people do things like this as it's a reflection of what they're remembering). Now think about it...if you know who you've been it is quite possible as time passes you are able to remember things from your past lives. Did we know back than of the existence of Unicorns? Omg...I can't even believe I'm contemplating this.....Maybe through past life regression, I just might be able to answer Scott Wolter's quest for the existence of Unicorns, since I was was tied to Scotland, Rosslyn Chapel and the Knights Templar. Did I know back then? And why is Scott so hell bent on proving the existence of Unicorns? Is it bunk or did he truly come across something that made him feel the evidence was real? I'm sure Jason ripped him a new one on that episode, rofl.

http://www.medievalists.net/2015/06/29/the-mystic-hunt-of-the-unicorn-tapestries-unveiled-at-stirling-castle/the-mystic-hunt-of-the-unicorn/

I had to dig for this but here's a quote I said back in June of 2013 on a thread about none other than Scott Wolter and the Kensington Runestone. I knew nothing of his Unicorn venture at the time of making this statement. How ironic and kinda synchronistic:

......So why am I telling you all this....because this is how you look within........the truth lies within all of us if we choose to see, and as more begin to look within like myself and begin to experience higher consciousness, we may find enough truth to start connecting dots amongst ourselves. As I began to make the correlations back in 2010 when I first discovered who I had been and who I was in this lifetime, it all began to make sense. And let me tell you, it brought new meaning to the well known phrase amongst the alternative audience- "as above so below". I'm not sure if the readers will follow what I'm saying, but maybe in time it will ring true and the evidence will be more pronounced as many begin to remember who they are, I suspect we will discover more seeds of legacies as individuals begin to awaken to their true identities which could help reveal the truths in ways we haven't been able to imagine.

Holy cow...it's as if I was prophesizing....as this type of situation I'm talking about right now is exactly what I was saying back in 2013, not even realizing Scott had explored the Unicorn topic..

Ok...gotta go to bed...I can feel a rabbit hole developing in which I don't want to find myself falling into....lol

The evidence is different for each of those cases but arguments can easily be made for any of them, and the only arguments against such ideas are often just that ancient ships would not have been able to cross the Atlantic, when this has already been disproved in modern times with recreations of the ancient ships.

Anyway lots of people are going to upset with America Unearthed simply because they don't feel comfortable with any changes to the historical narrative they have grown up believing, and these kinds of people are going to be attacking Wolter just to discredit what he says. But like I said, regardless of Wolter, the stuff he shows on the television program is most of the time already well-documented and he is just bringing attention to it from a wider audience in the same way as Ancient Aliens just brings attention to many pre-existing theories. These shows don't go into the amount of evidence that someone serious about this kind of thing might like them to, but it's for entertainment television and that has to be remembered too.

I just caught this last part. I agree. I get what Jason is doing but sometimes he does seem to stretch it bit...I know he's a big thorn in the side of History Channel. I seem to remember he received a cease and desist letter or something of that magnitude from the attorney representing either History Channel or Ancient Aliens to get him to shut it down....or maybe it was something about his book....I can't remember so don't quote me on it.

No doubt our history is so screwed up the books just have to be re-written....

I was perusing through some of Jason Colavito's articles when I caught this remark where Jason was discussing an interview Scott Wolter did on the Jimmy Church show:

"Near the end Wolter reiterates that he has just finished taping his new series for the History Channel, and that it will debut probably in the next month. He won’t say what it’s about. America Unearthed hasn’t been cancelled, he says, but due to the end of H2, he isn’t sure if it will return.”

I haven't had time to find out more...I didn't know H2 was coming to an end, any one else?

I just found this post on Wolter's blog that explains the deal with his "honorary degree": http://scottwolteranswers.blogspot.com/2014/09/so-what-about-that-apparently-non.html

It seems he never claims it was officially recognized and it was basically a sympathetic gesture by his professors after his father died in a snorkeling accident and Wolter published a book about agate or something or other not long afterward. His professors symbolically awarded him a "sympathy degree" after he presented his work at his university.

Regards the above about Wolter. I haven't seen a lot of him. Bits and pieces. I have already posted my reaction to his recent interview.
The add I make here, regards History Channel is, what a perfect platform to infuse a reputation to be used as an 'expert' to call on for pieces of the story.
