In Soviet Russia, America Plots to Undermine You!

September 27, 2018

This week Josh and M discuss the Dulles Plan (or Doctrine), which posits a huge conspiracy by the U.S. to undermine Russia from within. They also discuss Ben Carson's claims about the Fabian Society, touch on some purported Chinese espionage back in Aotearoa, and update you on the requistite Trump news. Just another week at the coalface of conspiracy theory. Oh, and M introduces their new YouTube series, "Conspiracism!" You can watch it here:

It’s a Flat, Flat, Flat, Flat World

September 21, 2018

What do Pacman, billiard balls and transwarping all have in common? They are associated with the Flat Earth thesis. Join Josh and M as they puzzle over the Flat Earth and Flat Earthers. Along the way they comment on the continuing sore that is the Brett Kavanaugh story, and talk a little about the flipping of one Paul Manafort.

They blinded us with (junk) science

September 14, 2018

This week we discuss the junk science behind cancerous claims about Round-up, Agent Orange, 1080, and Autism diagnoses, looking at how legal findings do not necessarily tell you anything interesting scientifically. We also cover some shenanigans surrounding the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, a 9/11 missing person case, and the latest disinformation from Russia.

What’s got QAnon so Spooked?

September 6, 2018

We return to QAnon to check in with their recent predictions, talk a little about 1080, cast shade on Twitter, and discuss the purported use of microwave weapons against U.S. diplomats in Cuba and Beijing.

 

[The audio this week is better than last week, but due to a problem with the set up the audio recorded on the wrong mics... Sorry!]

Michael Michael Collins Collins!

September 1, 2018

The audio quality in this episode is, at times, terrible. Listeners should be advised!

Join us as we discuss Michael Collins and Michael Collins. One of them is an Irish politician. The other is someone who remarkably never set foot on the Moon. All of them have associated conspiracy theories!
