In this show we investigate a modern mystery and phenomenon that has recently swept the world. It can be found discussed at large conventions for $300 for an admission ticket – where the so-called experts gather to promote their ideas of this field of study – and also in popular books, movies, radio shows, and TV programs.
I’m talking about 2012 and the history of the Mayan Calendar. But did 2012 really come from the Maya? Or from charlatans? What is fact, and what is fiction? And what is religion? Most of you will be surprised.
I interview John Hoopes, Director of the Global Indigenous Nations Studies Program, and Associate professor of Anthropology at the University of Kansas, Lawrence. He earned his doctorate from Harvard University in Anthropology, 1987.
Whether you’re a believer or not, this is one show you won’t want to miss!
