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.

Stalin. Putin. Saddam Hussein. Melania Trump. What do these three public figures have in common? No not fascism you doof, they’re all rumored to use body doubles! The controversy over Melania’s possible impersonators started in October of 2017 with video of her looking weird and plastic-y at a press converence, and it’s been bubbling ever since. And our guest, podcaster and feminist and truly brilliant writer/director Lindsay Stidham, is convinced that Melania employs one or more body doubles to serve in her place. And by that yes, we do mean hook up with Donald. This pop culture episode ends up being informational as hell, and if you’ve ever wanted to hear about the fate of Stalin’s impersonator, this is a must listen!

Sometimes Lizard People can be pretty wacky. But sometimes we just want to settle down, chill out, and talk about what really separates quantum mechanics from religion when you get right down to it. Michael Gardner stopped by LP HQ to discuss parallel universe theory, and how it relates to the Mandela Effect and the Berenstein/Berenstain Bears debate. Did we slip into an alternate timeline? Are we simply misremembering our timelines? Do universes boing off each other like red balls off a handball wall at recess? Should we hasten the oncoming AI apocalypse and hope that they’re benevolent dictators? All these questions and more are thoughtfully discussed in this week's episode.

Who shot JFK? If you think it was Lee Harvey Oswald, the dude hiding in a book dispensary with a big ass rifle, you truly are a chump. This week we address the conspiracy theory that president John F Kennedy’s killers were, in fact, a buncha wiseguys!!! That’s right, Mary Sasson (wildly talented comedian and writer) believes that the mafia did it. Along the way we also chatted about JFK’s super romantic friendship with Frank Sinatra, the history of American imperialism in Cuba, wacky seashells, sassy mistresses, and the truly inspiring story of a woman with an extra big vagina.

What blends true crime, paranormal activity, the Great Depression, adultery, murder, Hollywood glamour, and unsolvable mystical mysteries?  What’s that you say? You already read the episode title and you know we’re talking about the Cecil Hotel? That was smart. The Cecil Hotel was built in 1924 in downtown Los Angeles and it quickly got a reputation for being spooky as all hell. The building has been home to an outrageous number of suicides, murders, and just plain messed up goings on. And our guest, insanely talented improviser and writer Heather Anne Campbell, thinks there’s more than random coincidence at play here. Together we cover the eerie history of the hotel and branch out into such topics as whether ghosts are real, how many people kill themselves in Nevada, our specific anxieties, and what we the living owe to dead people. It’s creepy and it’s beautiful and we have some laughs too!
