Are we witnessing the beginning of WWIII? Let’s sure as hell hope not. But, let’s be honest, things aren’t looking so great right now. I mean, is it a coincidence that the missile strike occurred exactly 100 years – to the day – after the US entered World War I?
Conspiracy & Politics
Do vaccines cause autism? That’s the central question that’s been raging in the minds of many since Andrew Wakefield and colleagues held a press conference to discuss their controversial Lancet paper claiming to have identified a possible link between the MMR Vaccine and autistic enterocolitis. That was in 1998. Since then, all hell has broken loose.
In this episode, Adam relays a couple of harrowing tales that prompted him to contact authorities… not once, but twice! Was he just the victim…
The suspense was killing us. After months of teasing, master hype-builder Julian Assange finally opened his chamber of secrets: Vault 7. Surely this would be an earth-shaking trove of revelations – the final word on alien life, the impending apocalypse, or – at the very least – “crooked Hilary.” Well, the cache was opened, its riches generously shared with the virtual unwashed.
And we all yawned. Why? Have we grown so complacent that privacy is little more than a distant memory, a concept no more relevant to modern life than 8-track tapes or civics lessons? (Is it just me or is “public education” starting to sound like an oxymoron?)
ZEITGEIST (2007) is a phenomenon. It is a meandering, globe-spanning, time-trotting epic of free association and paranoia. Here we have the “real truth” behind Jesus Christ, Pearl Harbor, Viet Nam, 9/11, the military-industrial complex, the banking industry… Pretty much everything.
Join us as we discuss Peter Joseph’s overstuffed opus ZEITGEIST.
Do they really fly? That’s the question UFO researchers have been trying to definitively answer for years with regards to the Billy Meier contactee case. And, though several photos associated with the case have been later proven to be fraudulent, the final answer as to whether or not this indicates the WHOLE CASE is a hoax, has yet to be fully answered.
Nothing happened this week. Surely one of the most uneventful first weeks of any presidency. Right? Ha.
What if the bogeyman turns out to be real? That’s the premise of 2009 documentary CROPSEY, written and directed by Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio. The filmmakers explore the origins of the urban legend they heard about as children, only to discover that there may, in fact, be some truth behind the tale.
And the truth, as they say, is… terrifying.
Quite the cornucopia of conundrums and conspiracies:
The meaning of unlucky 13. What the heck is so unlucky about it? Who came up with that ridiculous idea, anyway?
Have we really reached a point in the development of artificial intelligence where we need to start considering the legal rights of “electronic persons”? Some in the European Parliament seem to think so.
We discuss up-to-the-minute developments in the decades-old mystery of D.B. Cooper, who jumped from a plane over Oregon with two hundred thousand dollars cash and disappeared without a trace.
…and much, much more!
Hypernormalisation is a nearly three-hour epic that leaps from subject to subject in a circuitous journey toward revelation. The film paints a vivid portrait of corporate control and increasing social insularity as it tries to make sense of our modern world’s pervasive anxiety and uncertainty.
In filmmaker Adam Curtis’s world, we are minds in the matrix, doomed to feed the machine with our bodies and souls.
In 2013, Edward Snowden reached out to filmmaker Laura Poitras because of her history of uncompromising documentary filmmaking. He knew she had long been a target of government surveillance and was confident she would not be easily intimidated.
Citizenfour (Snowden’s handle in his secret correspondences with Poitras) places us in a Hong Kong hotel room with Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald as the young whistleblower shares knowledge and evidence of illegal mass surveillance by the National Security Agency (NSA).
That awkward moment when you realize everything is connected…
Adam prepared for this episode by looking into the strange sphere-like object that appeared in front of the sun in NASA images this week. He looked into Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent visit to Antarctica (to meet with extraterrestrials under an alien-built pyramid, natch). He investigated cases of strange low-frequency hums that have been driving UK citizens mad since the 1970s.
As it turns out, all these things may have been signs of the realization of Project Blue Beam. What is Project Blue Beam? Only an alleged massive, multinational effort to stage the Second Coming and bring on the New World Order.
Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING is: a) a confession of his participation in the hoaxed Apollo moon mission; b) a treatise on the genocide of the Native Americans; c) a meditation on the holocaust; d) all of the above; e) a frickin’ horror movie.
New favorite word: apophenia.
