Podcast 42: Aliens in Antarctica, The Hum, Project Blue Beam, Ministry of Truth

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.



Podcast 29: The Simulation Hypothesis

What would you say if I told you that everything you see, everything you taste, touch, and do, it’s all an illusion? Would you say I’d seen The Matrix a few too many times? Well, this seems to be an affliction affecting some prominent physicists and philosophers these days.

Turns out there’s actual scientific evidence for the idea that we are all living in a carefully crafted simulation. Are we in fact merely sprites in a video game played by some disaffected teenager sitting on a cosmic bed in some “greater” reality?

The Simulation Hypothesis is a documentary offering a brief overview of the theories and science behind this notion. It’s not all as implausible as it sounds.


Podcast 20: Clown Terror, SETI Alien Signal, St. Louis UFO, Snopes Reliability

Who doesn’t love clowns? We all love clowns… right? Actually, I was never afraid of clowns when I was a kid. Santa Claus? Yes. (I mean, he was a big, red guy who broke into my house and passed judgment on me while I was sleeping. That was creepy.) Clowns, I was always cool with.

THIS, however, is not cool. From South Carolina to Ohio, kids are reporting terrifying encounters with clowns attempting to lure them with cash, candy, and threats of violence. There comes a point where it’s not funny.


Podcast 18: Stranger Things, Human Sacrifice at Cern, How to Spot a BS News Story

In the first of our weekly “grab-bag” podcasts we discuss a cornucopia of contemporary curiosities, including:

Human sacrifice at Cern.

No, really. Someone captured footage of an apparent ritual sacrifice in the courtyard outside the Large Hadron Collider. We are not making this up. Hoax? Joke? Desperate attempt to forestall the apocalypse? You decide.
