    ep: 412 – The Highway of Deceit – The Alternative Fuels Conspiracy

    Internal combustion engines are 135+ year old technology, so why have we not moved on to a more modern solution? There are better options, and there have reportedly been huge advances in engine technology that have been covered up. But why? In this episode I take a look at some "alt fuel" conspiracies including electric cars... which actually beat internal combustion engine vehicles to market all the way back in 1835!

    ep: 411 – The Amelia Earhart Conspiracy

    After her disappearance in 1937 many conspiracy theories have popped up about Amelia Earhart from changing her identity to a New Jersey housewife to being rescued by the inhabitants of the Hollow Earth. We may never know for sure what happened, but we may actually have an idea.

    ep: 410 – Is That A Cheesecake in Your Pocket or are You Just Happy to See Me?

    With Thanksgiving just 1 day away I figured a little bit of a lighter topic was in store. The Thanksgiving Cheesecake Conspiracy! Sit back and enjoy this story with a twist , intrigue and mystery. Who is the Cheesecakers Society and what devious plot is afoot to strip away the history of cheesecake at the very first Thanksgiving in 1621?

    ep: 409 – Suck It! The Weaponized Tick Conspiracy.

    ep: 409 – Suck It! The Weaponized Tick Conspiracy.

    Season 4 is rolling right along and this week I look at a conspiracy that is actually getting attention form the U.S. House of Representatives. Were ticks studied by the American military for the purpose of using them as biological weapons? Even though a lot of people say this is impossible, there is quite a bit of evidence to show that it may actually be the case. Mistakenly, Lyme Disease gets used as the "go to" for this conspiracy but I'll talk about why it may just be the patsy!
