The appropriately numbered podcast is a Fakeologist’s delight.
It starts off with an astroNOT.
It has a sketchy origin story for helium’s discovery.
It’s taken over by the military.
It’s stored underground in its original rock, even though it’s impossible to contain.
Only one storage/source in the entire world.
It’s new price is now $119/unit (up from 65), as the government divests itself from its exclusive control.
It’s going to be harvested in the hotbed of fake resources (like uranium), Saskatchewan, Canada’s breadbasket.
Besides party balloons, it’s used by NASA and your super expensive healthcare industry (another industry rife with fakery and scams).
Like radioactivity and uranium, is there anything at all to helium, or is it something else that we have plenty of, disguised as a mythical occult gas?
@Smj and @jlb should en oy this puzzle.

Helium is so special, and so rare, that the U.S. government once tried to buy it all up. And hide it. But the government’s helium stockpile is running low. And we need it for MRI machines and NASA rockets.
The reporter in this piece is clearly younger. Whatever you call the younger generation, millennials or Gen Y, their speech patterns are aggravating. Too many likes, uptalks, and giggles to take anything they say seriously.
