Music: Freak Flag Fly by The Womb
Why do our political elites conspire and who is listening to the Podcaster's Guide to the Conspiracy in Miami? These are the two central questions which preoccupy Josh and Matthew in this week's episode. Matthew finds that his vocabulary has taken a turn for the worst and Josh highlights that he and Matthew know nothing about the rules of succession if you next in line to become POTUS.
This week Josh and Matthew discuss the Celtic New Zealand thesis - the hypothesis that a European people populated Aotearoa (New Zealand) before the arrival of the Māori. Consider this a part 1 of sorts, since Matthew and Josh will be coming back to this wacky theory and its near neighbour, Treatygate, in time. Meanwhile, enjoy Matthew's rubbish Irish accent and Josh rumbling Matthew's game to one-up him on Twitter follower counts.

In this week's episode Josh and Matthew take a look at all the suppressed inventions they don't want you to know about. Josh reveals his ignorance about quantum zero point energy, Matthew talks about stomach ulcers (again) and if you listen to the end, Josh reveals a little known quote of Arthur C. Clarke you probably haven't heard before.
How many times can a person condemn antisemitism? Josh and Matthew condemn it a lot during this very special episode of the Podcaster's Guide to the Conspiracy. Along the way they also condemn the Veterans Today website, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, people who use anti-Zionism as a coded way to be anti-semitic, and Drew. It's positively damnable!
In this week's episode, Josh and Matthew look at the curious case of the Wolf who conspiracy theorised in the night. We look at her some of her more recent claims: elements within the US State were conspiring to assassinate the leaders of the Occupy Movement, and that the Scottish Referendum result was jigged, and look back to her seminal work, "The Beauty Myth". Is there a common thread to her conspiracy theories? Are any of them warranted? Can Matthew sing? All this, and more.
It's a new year and thus a new "series" of "The Podcaster's Guide to the Conspiracy". This week: medical conspiracy theories. Josh and Matthew look at the kind of conspiracy theories associated with medical claims, cures and treatments, why some people believe them and why there is sometimes good reason to believe them.
