Our guest this week is fan favorite (and creator of the Lizard People logo!) Ashlyn Anstee. Ashlyn is an animator and she knows some truly fascinating secrets about the secret world of animation. But one secret in particular fascinated her so much that she had to come back on Lizard People - the rumor that every Pixar movie is connected and they all exist in the same world! We get into the SPECIFICS in this one, and along the way we also discuss the underrated genius that is George Lucas, the terrifying love of children for snails, Canada, and crying in movies. Also, please stick around til the end to hear our sexy Weird Al encounter stories!
You hear about the teenage boys who died mysteriously on train tracks and the series of shady deaths that knocked off three alleged witnesses? WELL YOU’RE ABOUT TO! Improviser and soothing-voiced comedian Cory Webster stopped by to tell the fascinating and also very sad tale of Kevin Ives and Don Henry, two kids whose deaths have been linked to meth, murder, the Clinton Body Count, marijuana overdose, and a missing tarp. Were they hit by a train in a terrible accident? Or did someone kill them over a package of meth that was part of a US government plot to dominate the drug trade? Who knows!!!
Michael Dean is BACK and he’s been watching sitcoms from the 80’s, baby! Friend of the show (and inventor of the term Hemphead Nation) has a theory about the sitcom that launched young Robin Williams to superstardom and helped cement bland earth-angel Gary Marshall as a major producer. Yes, it’s Mork and Mindy. And Michael thinks the show may have been a plot by the US government to get us all comfy cozy with the idea of living with aliens. We touch on many other important subjects too - the 17 Wilson siblings, why Ron Howard’s mother robbed a cemetary, what we would do if sharks had rockets, how Pam Dawber felt about all of this, and of course the poetry of John Milton. Plus guess what ALEXIS IS ON THE MIC. Enjoy, Sediment Heads!
What do you add when you’re ready to upgrade a podcast? Booze and an audience. And we had both at Lizard People’s first ever live show! Plus our guests were the amazing improv team Area 51 (Sarah Claspell, Dickie Copeland, and Jessica Jean Jardine) and they really put things over the top. And the theory they took on might be the most problematic one yet! Yes, there’s some ‘evidence’ that nazis were descended from tall blonde aliens who hurtled to earth in icy comets of destruction with a mission to do science and murder us all. Aryans = Aliens and that’s pretty much the episode in a nutshell if you want to save time.
The Kardashians are back baby! Are they eclipsing Bey and Jay to become the first family of conspiracy theories? Also, does Drake suck? All these questions and more will be answered on this extremely gossip-y episode of Lizard People. Our guest is Nick Casalini of Hella In Your 30’s, and he’s got a passion for Drake and an extremely scandalous conspiracy theory about who sired the son of Sophie Brussaux. Plus we touch on Pusha T, rap beefs, Kim K, single moms, how weird it must be to have your mental illness play out in front of billions of people, and the great state of Wyoming.
