    9. Has Alex Jones been smoking his own supply at Infowars? With Paul Chowdhry

    9. Has Alex Jones been smoking his own supply at Infowars? With Paul Chowdhry

    As Alex Jones coughs up nearly $50m for defamation of the parents of Sandy Hook victim Jesse Lewes, the time is right for James, Jol and their guest Paul Chowdhry to dip their toe into the fetid waters of 'crisis actors', school shootings and the catch all conspiracy hell that is Infowars.

    Expect to hear how Jones became a multi-millionaire conspiracy theorist, what happened in his trial, and Paul's really mean impression of the reddest man in broadcasting. And have you ever wondered how conspiracy theories spread on tiktok? We have thoughts...

    Paul Chowdhry is a multi-award-winning stand-up comedian, actor, and writer. In August 2019, his record-breaking stand-up tour show, Live Innit, was released as an Amazon Prime original special in 200 countries worldwide.

    Trump-ed Up Charges... how the FBI Really Ruined Donald's Day

    Trump-ed Up Charges... how the FBI Really Ruined Donald's Day

    You're the 45th President of the United States, and there's a knock at the door. "Who's there!?" You yell between mouthfuls of burger, as you watch reruns of the insurrection on your VHS.

    "It's the FBI, open up, Mr President", comes the reply.

    "Jeez", you mutter under your breath. The burger falls apart in your tiny hands. "can't you see I'm busy!?"

    James and Jol dig in to what all of this MEANS for, like, America and, like, the whole world.

    What do the FBI know? Is this all a plan to block Trump from running for President again in 2024? could Trump credibly have secret documents just lying around his home?! AND what in the hell have flushing toilets got to do with this?

    8. Can GCHQ see my nudes? With Hannah Khalique-Brown

    8. Can GCHQ see my nudes? With Hannah Khalique-Brown

    The UK’s largest, best funded, and most sinister spy agency, GCHQ are tasked with gathering information and keeping the UK’s communications safe. So obviously Jol and James are asking… Can GCHQ see my nudes? (never shying away from the important questions - ed)

    Fittingly, James and Jol are joined this week by Hannah Khalique-Brown, an actor who has played a fledgling GCHQ coder on screen AND written an essay on conspiracy theories.



    Regular listeners will be unsurprised to learn that James is no stranger to the work of GCHQ… after working at Wikileaks and then on the NSA files leaked to the Guardian by Edward Snowden many would be concerned if he wasn’t on a GCHQ watch list.

    Expect to hear in this episode how GCHQ spyware is named after Smurfs, how James got top secret files out of the UK after British spies made them destroy the copies they had in the UK, and extracts from Hannah’s university essay on… conspiracy theories.

    Hannah stars as Saara Parvin in Channel 4’s new cyber warfare drama, The Undeclared War, making her the perfect guest to discuss the supposed snooping powers of GCHQ.

    Spy In a Bag

    Spy In a Bag

    Remember the Spy in a Bag story? The grizzly story of how a spy - Gareth Williams - was found dead in his Pimlico flat, locked inside a bag in his bath?
    This week James, Jol and Hannah Khalique-Brown dig through this unanswered conspiracy.
    James reveals two extremely surprising facts about the case - neither of which are in the public domain, based on his time working on the NSA files.
    So was it the Kremlin what did it? Or did MI6 turn on one of their own? Get in touch with us on hello@Newconspiracist.com

    7. Conspiracy Theory – Did the One-Inch Punch Kill Bruce Lee? With Sanjeev Bhaskar

    7. Conspiracy Theory – Did the One-Inch Punch Kill Bruce Lee? With Sanjeev Bhaskar

    Bruce Lee – legendary martial artist, actor and director died on 20 July 1973 at the age of 32 in the middle of filming. Many believe he died in mysterious circumstances.

    Some believe he was killed by Chinese gangsters, others that he was assassinated by Shaolin monks and some say that he was poisoned to death.

    But one popular theory is that he was killed by the One-Inch Punch (also known as Dim Mak or the Touch of Death).

    What is it? Is it possible? And is this what offed Mr Lee at such a young age?



    Jolyon Rubenstein, James Ball and their special guest Sanjeev Bhaskar explore how you train to deploy such a punch, how it has endured in popular culture (‘Kill Bill’ anyone?) and why Bruce Lee’s family seem particularly cursed.

Good podcast but.....

So I love these boys and the guests are great. But the sound is weird at times. Ends up sounding muffled on occasion. Not sure if it’s on the guests end or with the show itself. It’s not all the time but hopefully something can be done about it.

Thoroughly enjoying this podcast

Thanks for the laughs!

Conspiracies don't exist…

According to these two and their extremely biased “guests” every conspiracy in the mainstream consciousness is some crazy maga/Alex Jones ruse. If you want to listen to politically driven closed minded fools… this is your show!!
