About Us

Breaking Basic is about knowledge, truth, and the search for meaning.  This means looking beyond accepted norms, accepted truths, religions, laws, governments, science and dogma.  Ben and I met through a social media fan page of a popular conspiracy theory podcast, where we both became regular guests on a fan run youtube show ran by Blogger, author, conspiracy theorist and esotericist, Quorri Scharmyn.

When that show came to it’s natural end, Quorri Scharmyn began a new show and podcast, Rogue Ways.  Rogue ways is a chat style podcast featuring regular people, sharing ideas and opinions on various topics ranging from the occult and paranormal, to the scientific and areas of self development.  She is also the author of several books, and runs a blog of the same name.

Breaking Basic started almost simultaneously as the brain child of Benjamin Feser and Claude Furry.  The show is dedicated to occult studies, alchemy, religion and history, and of course, magic.  The show is recorded live and unscripted as a normal chat covering several threads related to a single topic per episode, sometimes stretching over into multiple episodes.  It is our goal to share own experiences, thoughts and ideas in a way that anyone can understand, and suss out the truth of for themselves.

Claude is a native of Texas, being the 7th generation male of his family born there.  He is a network technician and SQL programmer by trade, a father, a husband and disabled veteran of the United States Air force.  The majority of his life he has been a dedicated Christian – and still maintains his faith in God – however, his views have changed substantially, as he will be more than willing to tell you.
