    Episode 6 - Flat Earth

    Episode 6 - Flat Earth

    Join us as we dive head first into the flat Earth conspiracy this month. It's a rabbit hole like no other and we thoroughly enjoyed recording this one, so hopefully it's as fun to listen to as it was to make! 

     We cover the origins of the movement, from Samuel Birley Rowbotham and the publication of Zetetic Astronomy in 1849, to the 2015 YouTube revival of flat Earth, courtesy of Mark Sargent, Eric Dubay and The Globebusters. The recent Netflix documentary Behind The Curve gets more than a few mentions, along with British illusionist Derren Brown and electronic music DJ/producer Skrillex!

    Episode 5 - The Death of Princess Diana

    Episode 5 - The Death of Princess Diana

    We're diving into the conspiracy theories surrounding the deaths of Princess Diana, Dodi Al-Fayed and Henri Paul this month!

    We ask the big questions... Was the fatal crash in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris on 31st August 1997 really a tragic accident or was there an establishment cover-up? Was it perhaps a planned assassination carried out by MI6 on behalf of the Royal Family? What does Bill Clinton have to do with any of this? Who the fuck drives a Fiat Uno? Important stuff like that.

    Episode 4 - Vaccines

    In this episode we discuss vaccination conspiracy theories. Who said we can't do topical? 

    We go deep; exploring the origins of the anti-vax movement and how it's *mutated* over the years, investigating the infamous study that reinvigorated the AV scene in the late 90s, and questioning current narratives around vaccine passports and the ongoing global pandemic. Some familiar names pop up along the way too, from JFK to Bill Gates to David Icke!

    Episode 3 - The Moon Landings

    This month we're reaching for the stars, or more specifically, the moon! Did America really put man on the moon back in 1969 or was it all just an elaborate hoax by the US government and NASA to trick the Soviet Union and, well, the entire world? Could one of the greatest film makers of all time have been involved? Find out what we think in our most epic episode to date, and be sure to let us know what you think too.
