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.

You like professional wrestling? The thing is, even if you think you don't, you honestly do. From the pageantry to the hella ripped bods to the powerful community that's congealed around it, wrestling has become so much more than just a goofy rigged pseudo-sport. And in this episode our illustrious guest argues that the modern era of wrestling can be traced back to one shocking fight - the infamous Montreal Screwjob. Jon Mackey is a talented writer, director, and comedian, and he's finally going public about his passionate love for the art and sport that is wrestling. He's also addressing the true conspiracy behind the event that changed sports forever.

Wowie zowie, it's our 50th episode! It's been a blast to take this journey with all of you, and we think it was a blast to record this ep but somehow nobody really remembers doing it? It's weird, we all just sort of have a blank 48 hours in our memories. But it seems like that was when we were recording and editing this? Guess this is what happens when you set out to do a 9/11 episode. Anyway, huge thanks to all the people who apparently lent their talents to this, including: Matt Walsh, Sarah Claspell, Jon Mackey, Ele Woods, Ben Dietzel, Ryan Middledorf, Grant Martz, Sarah De La Isla, Cooper James, Clem, Maude, Michael Dean, and Alexis Preston. They were probably an absolute pleasure to have in the Lizard's Lair. Hope you like it! And... stay safe out there.

If you're like us, you're still waiting on your check for protesting from George Soros. What gives, Georgie? Turns ol Soros is at the heart of a lot of contemporary conspiracy theories, including the ones that paint Black Lives Matter as a violent group, and that argue that the Women's March was organized by the shady left. But are any of these true? Are all of them true? Is the New York Times Opinion section basically just The National Enquirer these days? All these questions and more will be answered in this fran-inspired mini-episode.

Tap tap. Tap tap. What's that sound? Why it's a gay bathroom scandal a-blowing in! It seems like with every passing year there's another crazy drama wherein a conservative politician who's actively campaigned against LGBTQ rights is discovered soliciting sexy gay sex online or in a men's room. But what's behind all that? Why does it keep turning out that the most hateful people are the very thing they hate? Our hilarious and brilliant guest Petey Gibson addresses that weird pattern in the very best way - by arguing that it's kind of a conspiracy! Petey also has some very wise words about marriage, vaudeville, gender, muffin tops, politics, seals, and which chest binder gives you the most bang for your buck. We have a lot of laughs, and we also do a lot of serious thinking! Take this journey with us, won't ya?

Ooh wee, one of the big ones! Folks have been rehashing the chemtrails/contrails controversy since way back in the 90's, and it seems like each new day brings a new Reddit subthread about it. But what exactly are chemtrails? And why do they keep appearing in the form of a Star of David? Our guest, the wildly talented actor and comedian Mike Lane, addresses just these questions. Plus he also tells us all about Chamillionaire, fashion, superbugs, vapor, nude planes, secret technology, big pharma, little effers, depression, and way way more.  But one thing that none of us know about is video games!

Did you know that at one point the US government was just giving out free TV's? And did you know that Siri can totally hear what you're saying at all times? Doesn't that just wig you out??? For some of us, the answer is nah. But according to our illustrious guest, actor and comedian Sarah Claspell, we should all be a little more worried about exactly what data our TV's and smart phones and wise watches are collecting. We also touch on pie thumbs, geometry, bombs, the NSA, nerds, and much much more. This episode also features a WILD cameo from our friend Alexa. Still waiting on those 100 beers.
