After declaring a false nuclear emergency during his morning show, Billy Griffin is sacked from Sunshine Radio, and is forced to take up his old job at a local burger bar. Quite by chance, he inherits a shortwave set from his late Uncle Red, (a piece of stolen technology lifted from the Philadelphia Experiment), and decides to start up his own pirate station.
Dead Talk Radio haunts the airwaves of Newtown for weeks with little fanfare. Until, during his very last show, a prank caller named God phones in and convinces Billy that he’s suffered a major psychotic break. Insisting that he’s spent weeks calling for an armed insurrection, and with the Feds hot on his tail, God offers Billy a quick way out. Seeing no other option, he follows God’s instructions and repeats the simple mantra, I’m not here.
Billy finds himself lost in the seven circles of hell, slipping through one parallel dimension after another. In a case of mistaken identity, he’s credited as the inventor of the world’s first burger, and his new fast food chain takes the globe by storm. Billy’s company expands into mass media and sets up its own independent network. Within months, the constant rebukes by his mainstream competitors elevates his news show to number one in the ratings.
When Billy’s invited to meet with the Alumniati, a secret cabal of the richest and most powerful leaders of the world, he finds them more than willing to aid him in his mission, to start a global uprising and sweep the shadow elite from the face of the Earth.
But why would the Alumniati seek their own destruction? What fate lies in wait for humanity? Only Billy, the star of his own news show, Infogod, can show the way. The reality behind all realities, the mother lode of truth for a fake news world.
