Brian Hickey, a staff writer for the Philly Voice, reached out to Spiritual North, for a comment on the upcoming eclipse.
On August 17th, 2017, Hickey published an article which has been a continuation of his thread of covering Flat Earth related topics, since back when he initially covered the Research Flat Earth Billboard in Philadelphia. Since then, he wrote this, this and this as follow up articles. The last of which impressively covered how a Flat Earth group in Indonesia turned down an offer of $50,000 to advertise for a documentary about NASA astronaut Linda Godwin, entitled 250 Miles Up.
Well this is the best article to date, and it covers and in depth pro and con perspective from both sides of the argument. Within this spectrum, Spiritual North was heavily quoted from, and had perhaps the longest pro-flat earth comment published in the article. Here's the quote that went out in the Philly Voice today:
Perhaps one of the strongest components to the article that Brian Hickey has crafted, is that he appropriately identifies pro-flat earthers and skeptics at the onset of their quote. One of the difficulties of this research going into it is figuring out who believes what and why, and this article goes a long way in making that public for everyone to see.
Consider shooting Brian Hickey an email to congratulate him on being an objective journalist (and one of the first - if not the first - in the Flat Earth arena) firstname.lastname@example.org or perhaps give him a follow on Twitter: http://twitter.com/brianphickey.
Alexis Kleinman Drafts an Unbiased Flat Earth Article, which Comes Across as Well-Written and Thoughtful
Props to any journalist with the cajones to write a real article about Flat Earth.
Got to hand it to Forbes. Way to cash in on that Flat Earth SEO. You title an article with the notion that an eclipse will disprove flat earth, then you proceed to not discuss flat earth once, or how an eclipse can disprove it. Solid reporting.
On August 12th, 2017 Brad Auerbach publishes an article on Forbes.com alleging an eclipse disproves Flat Earth and then goes on to mention zero reasons why. In fact the only reference to Flat Earth in the article is a "a wacky friend from high school who has inexplicably become a Flat Earther." He offers no information about how an eclipse is disproving flat earth or proving the spherical model. Real straight-shooter, this one.
In this rare scenario, late Astronomer Carl Sagan "endorses" 'Flatlandia'!
Spiritual North is making each chapter in his recent book, 'Flatlandia' available for free on YouTube, with one video per chapter.
In case $7.99 is a little tough on the wallet, SN has opted to give away all the content of 'Flatlandia' in the name of freedom of information and dissemination of the brand. Although, you'll have to be patient as I get them out one by one. If you just can't wait and do opt to purchase a copy of the book, you'll be happy to know it includes over 200 hyperlinks of research and investigation.

Denver Post recently did an article on Flat Earth. In particular, about the meetups that are happening in the Colorado area.
The Post article ran with this headline, "These Coloradans say Earth is flat. And gravity's a hoax. Now they're being persecuted."
The article mentions Globebusters, Flat Earth Conference, ODD Reality and the Ice Wall Theory... Articles about Flat Earth in the mainstream that don't somnabulistically point to the The Flat Earth Society (a known controlled opposition group) are becoming more and more common. Also recently, Vice magazine ran 10 Questions for a Flat Earth featuring Nathan Oakley, which is another legit journalism endeavor. Flat Earth has revamped the SEO and will continue to become more and more popular with respect to being given due consideration.
A follow up article appeared a few days after, also in the Denver Post, entitled, "I'm a skeptic and I love the Flat Earth movement."
Are robot space aliens hiding in your Cheerios? Can you rent a car to drive to the edge of the earth? Since when are Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Katy Perry besties? Was it Michio Kaku that produced the new Aliens movie? Spiritual North answers these types of questions in a collection of essays investigating the shape of our earth. 'Flatlandia' is not only a socio-cultural and epistemological inquiry, but also an interactive hyper-media with over 200 embedded links of reference and research for further exploration.
