Have you ever lain awake at night pondering the big questions as you stare at the ceiling, waiting for the ever impending embrace of death? Questions like: “Why do people think the earth is flat?”, or, “Who came up with the idea of Reptilian overlords?”, and of course, “Is Donald Trump actually president? How did this happen and are we positive that we’re not just living in a nightmare?” - Well, here at the Cognitive Contortions Podcast we attempt to answer those questions, and many, many more. Our highly untrained and certainly unqualified team of investigator, (there’s only one), works tiredly, (seriously, this stuff is exhausting), to bring as much information to the table as possible. Using the most advanced databases and search optimization available in today’s modern age, (google), the self proclaimed amateur experts discuss and answer claims of conspiracy and theory. Please don’t let these burning, most important questions of our time keep you awake any longer, join us while four idiots, Tyler, Scott, Aaron and other Tyler, crush on Keanu Reeves, reference Star Wars, play pointless games and sort of talk about conspiracy theories; and you too can have, “peace of mind.” (T-Rex hands)

Nonstop Entertainment

Thought this podcast deserved a review, so it it is. I've never really been one for listening to podcasts as they really aren't my thing. However I stumbled upon this gem on one night from someone's IG stories and let me tell you, I sure am glad I did. I binged listened (if that's a thing) to all 10 of the available episodes in about 2 and a half days.The guys of CContortions had me cracking up for hours on end. If you're someone that doesn't take life too serious and have a weird and somewhat dark sense of humor, this is a great listen for you. The first 2 episodes were a bit slower, but it's more of an intro to get to know the 4 guys and see what their show is all about. By episode 3...I felt they got their groove and the shenanigans took off and it was nonstop entertainment from there on out and it kept getting better and better as time went on. They give some pretty interesting points on conspiracy theories, lots of background info on where and how they got started, give their rather hilarious opinions and each episode just goes off the rails. I found myself laughing out loud several times. Lots of good material, they have their own little games and segments, which I think is fabulous! Keep up the great work guys. I've become a fan and I LOVE the show! Thanks for laughs and good times. <3
