Lizard People: Comedy & Conspiracy Theories

What if the government actually did cover something up in Roswell? What if yetis exist and are just really shy? What if super-intelligent lizards are wearing human skin suits, influencing international affairs and recording podcasts? Conspiracy theories are cool because they appeal to our evolved logical human brains and our stupid mammal idiot brains. So join comedian and skeptic Katelyn Hempstead as her brilliant friends try to convince her of these and many other conspiracy theories.

Listen to this ep if you want to hear a woman drive her former boyfriend to a mental breakdown.

And now, the extraordinary story of Katie Hitler, the nice, basic girl who happens to be Hitler's great-grand-niece. Just kidding! Just regular Hitler. Erika Curry is fascinated with World War Two, and she came on the podcast to talk about the theory that Hitler did not kill himself in the bunker, but in fact escaped to Argentina. We also talk about Korean spas, Captain America, accents, SoulCycle, race, guyabera shirts, and the nature of evil.

Comedian and director and writer and all around boss ass bitch Lindsay Stidham is on the show this week, and she's here to talk about a conspiracy theory surrounding one of the comedy greats. Andy Kaufman died in 1984 of complications from lung cancer. OR DID HE??? He said a lot of weird stuff before he passed about staging a hoax and escaping from celebrity. But was he just a big weird loon? Or was he the greatest comedian ever to live? Or both? Or neither? Either way, more comedians should take the audience out for milk and cookies.

Joe Quint came on the podcast to share a dangerous theory. A theory so powerful, it could undermine the very nature of existence. What if, like, The Matrix is totally real? But it's, like, scientists? Woah. This is the brainiest conversation ever to happen on LP and you're gonna either love it or hate it. But Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Elon Musk just endorsed simulation theory so you better jump on the train ASAP dudes. Also was Katelyn right about Wil Wheaton, or was Joe?!?! Gotta listen to find out.

Ok ladies, now let's talk about the Illuminati. Where did it come from? Why is it still relevant? Why are we so afraid of powerful black artists and culture-creators that we need to make up stories about them being satanists? Writer and social media whiz Olivia Duncan knows more Beyonce lyrics than you do, and she brings us the terrifying tale of the global conspiracy that's taking over our  awards shows and Walkmen. Way to go Olivia!

The Zodiac Killer is one of the great unsolved mysteries of American law enforcement. The string of deaths in northern California remains impossible to resolve, and the man who murdered as many as 37 people remains at large. OR DOES HE??? Michael Dean, funny comedian and very nice boy, believes that the Zodiac Killer is in fact none other than former Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. Why else would he drop out of the race? Not because he was losing (although dang did he get his butt handed to him). Not because he ate a booger on live TV. No, it's because he was about to be revealed as one of the most notorious serial killers in American History. Duh.

She was a tragic beauty, the first true royal celebrity, snatched away by a mysterious accident before her time.

Join our guest Jamie Di Spirito, actor/writer/comedian/British guy, as he gets to the bottom of what may have really happened to the people's princess. Bonus: we all learn a lesson about what you're not allowed to call people in America.

This ep features chef's knives, some meditation on the nature of mental illness, and a very mysterious lawyer!

The conspiracy that launched a thousand 90's TV shows is finally making an appearance. Area 51 was it the home of a downed spaceship, an experimental research facility, or just an airport with an adorable name? Ian Hamilton, brilliant writer and excellent friend, has all the answers. And also several nutso stories about his dog. This episode also features: hot rocks! Weird boat guys! A very nice salesman! A fully insane dude! Also, we all find out that Ian's real name is Scott! Don't miss it.

Hot celebrity gossip. Dating in LA. Hysterical giggling. This episode has it all! Comedian and writer and model co-worker Nina Concepción came on the show to discuss the very popular and very insane theory that Katy Perry is secretly JonBenét Ramsey, hidden for years and re-engineered as a pop star. This episode is notable for being the one in which we spend the least amount of time discussing a conspiracy and the most laughing directly into the mics. Also, the Illuminati make a cameo appearance! That's Hollyweird, baby.

This one's a doozy. The rumor that the moon landing was faked is slightly older than the actual moon landing. But why would America bother to film a fake landing, and how did they fake zero gravity, and also why would they pick Kubrick when his movies are obviously so incredibly boring? All these questions and more are answered by writer, cool guy and great co-worker Evan Ponter. Bonus: Katelyn tries to Science.

Imagine, if you will, the most dashing criminal of the mid-20th century. A man with a well-pressed suit and a way with stewardesses, a man who wears sunglasses indoors. DB Cooper was only sort of that guy. Colton Stickney, comedian and friend, brings us the mysterious story of the man who disappeared one stormy night over the Oregon jungle. Grab a bourbon and scotch, and let Colton tell you a tale.

If you're in to cartels, shady business practices, and tech industries screwing us all over, this one'll really switch you on! Oh also puns, terrible puns.

Consider this: during Elvis' alleged funeral, there were a bunch of helicopters flying around. HELICOPTERS!! In this episode, comedian and writer Todd McClintock makes the case that Elvis did not in fact die in 1977, but went undercover as singer and insane person Jimmy 'Orion' Ellis. Expect special appearances from a sawed-off shotgun, psychotic fans, World War II, painkillers, and the grossest briefcase anyone has ever heard of.
