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.

One of the great American mysteries of the 20th century began on Christmas Eve of 1945 in West Virginia. West Virginia!! The story of the missing Sodder children has haunted the country ever since, and what might appear to be a simple and depressing case of a house fire might be way more than that. In this ep, the extremely smart Tamar Stevens catches us up on the many possibilities of what might have happened to the tots, from for-profit adoption to Italian fascists to maybe even just like wandering out into the night. And if you get time, you absolutely MUST research what was in that box. This ep brought to you by Loot Crate. Loot Crate! It’s fun! Go to LootCrate.com/Lizard and enter our code LIZARD. Have fun!

JD Salinger’s seminal novel Catcher In The Rye has been THE classic teen angst bible for half a century. It’s beloved by alienated teens and weird adults alike. But what if the book is more than just the story of an emo little shithead wandering around New York City? What if it’s a government tool used to trigger assassins? OR ALTERNATIVELY what if it’s just a book written by a madman that appeals to the darkness inside other loonys? OR WHAT IF this whole episode is a pretext for the wonderful Cassi Jerkins to talk about her cats? WHAT IF?!?!?!?!? This ep brought to you by Loot Crate. Loot Crate! It’s fun!

Fan fave Dave Child is back! And this time he’s tackling one of the great American urban legends - the Mothman himself. This very serious look at West Virginia’s favorite cryptid and Richard Gere’s least favorite film covers all the possibilities for what the Mothman might really be. Is he an evolutionary throwback? A traveler from another dimension? Or a monster that reappears throughout world mythology - and in another episode of this very podcast? Listen up and decide for yourself, gumshoe!

Hasn’t every little girl dreamed of being a pop star? The fame, the outfits, the chance to goad your best friend into suicide so that you can take over her life and then record some cutesy pop albums. This wicked little conspiracy dates all the way back to 2007, but it’s having a resurgence for some reason. And comedian, writer, stripper and podcast host Kasey Koop is here to argue that Avril died and was replaced by her body double right after her second album. We talk about who married Chad Kroeger, the way artists evolve over a lifetime, Kristen Stewart, Miley Cyrus, Satan, our teen years, and whether astrology is just total bullshit. This episode is sponsored by our good buddies Loot Crate and Mack Weldon.

We’d like to buy the world a… SHAM?!? There’s an unsavory episode in the history of Coca Cola that the biggest soda company in the world would like you to forget about (actually there are a bunch, look it up). But in this case, we’re talking about Coke’s colossal and expensive 1985 misstep, the introduction of New Coke. The company lost millions of dollars because consumers refused to let them trifle with their beloved bev, and Coke quickly replaced the old formula. But here’s the thing. Some people think it wasn’t a misstep at all, and the company intentionally took an L so that they could bring back traditional Coke and blow everyone’s minds. What madman would be bold enough to argue this theory? WILL HINES THAT’S WHO. The phenomenal comedian, teacher, writer, and actor stopped by to blow all our minds with his wildly well-thought-out theory that Coca Cola planned the whole dang caper. Thanks Will! And thanks to you for listening. Hey and don’t forget to patronize our Brand! New! Sponsor!
