False flags are a recurrent topic in The Podcaster's Guide to the Conspiracy, and so Matthew talks to James F. Tracy, of Florida Atlantic University about them. James "made his name" positing the theory that perhaps the Sandy Hook Massacre was, in fact, a false flag operation; a government drill made to look like something else entirely. Matthew and James talk through the history of false flags, rival cock-up hypotheses and, of course(?), the ills of privatisation.
Oh, and Josh pops up to introduce and then conclude the show, because he's like that.

Between talking about Nazi UFOs, Sharknado 3 and the curious U.S. military operation, Operation: Highjump, Josh and Matthew cover all the usual bases. Pop culture? Check! False flags? Check! Dubious ruminations involving Nazis and Americans? Check! So, why not join them in the Antarctic and check what was happening in Little America IV back in 1946?

It's all a question of sports... Sports conspiracy theories. Matthew and Josh, who know nothing about sports conspiracy theories, are joined by Martin Orr, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Sociology at Boise Sate University in Idaho. Along the way they discuss the FIFA scandal, All Blacks being poisoned by the myterious "Suzie", and the terrible tale of Max Fisker and his match-fixing. It's sports sports sports!

What better way to celebrate 38 years of Matthew R. X. Dentith than with a podcast devoted to France's terrorist attack on Aotearoa (New Zealand) on July 10th, 1985? Yes, it's thirty years since France conspired to blow up the Rainbow Warrior, which was berthed in Auckland at the time, and so Josh and Matthew take a look back at a case which was very close to home to both of them.

This week we pay homage to one of our patrons and talk occult conspiracies. There's a lot of talk of the Great Beast, Aleister Crowley, some worrying about the Satanic Panics of the 1980s and a story about how stories of Satanism not only helped us win the Second World War but also inspired a young Ian Fleming to become a writer. So, sit back, relax and enjoy the subliminal messages played backwards in this week's episode of the Podcaster's Guide to the Conspiracy.
