Conspiracy Skeptic Episode 88 - It's a Q, Q Bummer
Biden is president, despite all predictions made my Qanon cranks. What can we expect in the future now that prophesy has failed? Your Conspiracy Skeptic gives his hot take on the group's future.

Conspiracy Skeptic Episode 83 - What ever became of Glen Kealey?
Glen Kealey was something of an anti-government folk hero back in the late 80s. For some, an amusing footnote in 80s Canadian politics. He's the man who pressed private criminal charges on Brian Mulroney. Kealey has returned but with a different story, one independent investigator of all things bizarre and frequent Monster Talk guest Jerry Drake has come on to talk about. Or aboot.
Super nice and funny guy, but his interview style could use some work. Questions kind of end awkwardly, since he has the tendancy to follow up answers with statements rather than more questions.
It was okay
Could use a little more work
Disappointed with the quality of host and guest research. Was hoping for more thorough logical discussions, rather than regurgitated personal attacks. I chose several episodes at random because the subject matter was intriguing, but now moving on.
