1.5: The Skill of our Hands (feat. Steven Brust & Skyler White)

EPISODE #260

It’s time to look into the oldest, the most arcane and perhaps most persuasive of the secret societies — The Incrementalists.

It is said they control all other secret societies. That they have had a hand in history’s most momentous events. That they are in touch with aliens or are themselves secret alien overlords with the power of Immortality, mind reading,  telepathy, and  E.S.P. — able to keep everyone in the world under constant surveillance. That they are everywhere. Perfectly organized toward one mysterious goal.

What is their secret agenda? And why have they waited through all of human history to reveal themselves now?
