Matthew has returned from America with a terrible accent to find Josh has been secretly recording his own podcast with a wooden spoon. As our co-hosts settle back into a semblance of a normal routine, Josh quizzes Matthew on what happened at the Conference on Conspiracy Theories at the University of Miami, and what take home messages Matthew might like to share with the general public.
This week's special guests are Jack Z. Bratich, author of "Conspiracy Panics: Political Rationality and Popular Culture" and Jesse Walker, author of "The United States of Paranoia" (and editor of "Reason" magazine"), who Matthew interviewed on the 14th of March, 2015, in Miami.

With Matthew away, this week's episode is part pre-record, part-filler. Listen in to over forty minutes of classical music, with sporadic discussion of conspiracy theories thrown in just as you think you are getting bored of it all. Next week's episode is equally unsatisfying, but at least it has the virtue of being only ten minutes long.
