Magical Mystery Media is your place for paranormal and conspiracy culture. We take an open-minded, yet rational, view of all things magical and mysterious in the world. As we like to say, “keep an open mind, but don’t let your brain fall out.”
We hope to provide our listeners with a show that’s intriguing, informative, as well as entertaining. We’re not afraid to give our opinion, even if that means taking down a few sacred cows, but we’re also not going to take ourselves too seriously. Life’s too weird for that.
As conspiracy and the paranormal become more mainstream in popular culture, we’ve noticed a simultaneous decline in critical thinking about these topics. Not everything is a goddamned false flag! Yes, we landed on the friggin’ moon! And no, you don’t know shit about quantum physics!
Ironically, as distrust in authority deepens, there seems to be a simultaneous rise in trusting bat-shit crazy. Much of the blame lies with our government and religious institutions for this state of affairs – simply because they’ve lying to us for so long, no one knows who to trust, or what to believe anymore.
In short, there’s a lot of crap out there. But there’s some really good stuff too. And that’s where we come in. We’re here to separate the wheat from the chaff. We can’t promise to get to the bottom of the rabbit hole, but we’ve been down here long enough to act as your humble guides along the way.
So, join us, and let’s find out how deep it really goes.
“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

WHO THE HELL ARE WE?
John is an actor, writer, and conspiracy junkie. Okay, he’s a nut. Although, when he’s in a more pretentious mood, he likes to refer to himself as an “aficionado”.
Has spent the last two decades immersed in the conspiracy subculture as a fly on the wall, and has had tea with more than a few mad as tin-foil hatters. Enjoyed criticizing the X-Files at the peak of its popularity, but really he was just jealous he never got to write for it.
Stays up way too late. He’s also a health and fitness freak who enjoys coffee and cigarettes. Don’t call him a hipster. He hates that. Thinks mainstream culture is aggressively and relentlessly stupid. But then again, he cried like a baby during Titanic. So, he’s also a total sap. He’s usually right, but then really… you shouldn’t listen to anything he says, what the hell does he know, he believes in Bigfoot.
