Those Conspiracy Guys
Gordon Rochford
Those Conspiracy Guys is an Irish comedy podcast where we discuss all types and genres of conspiracy theories, paranormal happenings and true crime from Atlantean myths to Zapruder films; from ghosts and demons to alien abductions; from werewolves and vampires to CIA assassins and Russian spies. We have a big episode every two weeks, a True Crime show every other week and loads of other stuff every so often and you can head over to the website for details.Our aim is to cast a light into the dark corners of corruption, conspiracy and suppression. We want to scour a web laden with tales of political intrigue, extra-terrestrials, rogue governments, secret societies, the paranormal, murder, mayhem, deceit, destruction, the cryptozoological and the psycho-pharmacological and present the fable of the 21st century: The Conspiracy Theory.It's a Podcast that asks the unanswered questions of the wildest mysteries and weirdest truths from throughout our history. Taking universally available information from all around the internet and beyond, we'll provide a funny and friendly resource for all your conspiracy needs.With weekly Podcast episodes and our constantly updated website Those Conspiracy Guys want to bring some truth to your inquisitive ears.No topic is too delicate or outlandish and we want to make it palatable for everyone from beginners to experts. From the average guy on the street to a die hard conspiracy nut, we want to bring you the great conspiracies of time immemorial to the ones unfolding around us everyday. We avoid the tinfoil hats and poorly crafted sci-fi stories that litter the internet, to bring you conspiracies that you have heard about and more that you haven’t. We are gleaning information from a seemingly insurmountable wall of waffle and running our common sense detector over some of the misinformation that lies in the stagnant swamp of the web.We are but 'humble' Irish people, with a propensity for critical thinking and common sense, and a host of friends with the same mindset, but we all have a third eye squinted open for the strangeness of truth and are all tireless in the never ending quest for the opportunity to have the craic.Have you ever watched the news and thought ‘that doesn’t look right?’.Have you ever questioned main stream media or questioned what ‘main stream’ even means?Have you ever agonised over the official version of events that seemed like they were the script of a bad movie?Then this is the podcast for you. We analyse easily available material and cast a critical eye over it; discussing the validity of its sources and its credibility as fact. Sometimes we believe it, sometimes we don’t, but you can make your own mind up because we are just a bunch of people with some free time and questionable search histories.

Joseph Kondro
TRUE CRIME - This episode is a cracker and tells the tale of one sick pup; Joseph Kondro. Comedian Betsy Speer joins me to chat about Uncle Joey and his misadventures with the children of his neighbours in Washington State and beyond.

The Port Arthur Massacre
TRUE CRIME -On this episode we talk about the catalyst for disarming the Australian population and an event that was so destructive to society at the time; it is used as the yard stick to measure the severity of all mass shootings until just very recently; this time we are talking about Martin Bryant and The Port Arthur Massacre.Port Arthur was a mass shooting perpetrated by one Martin Bryant in April 1996 where 25 people were wounded and 35 people killed at the hands of Bryant and a variety of firearms and other methods. Bryant was a local oddball and a very wealthy man but was of 'diminished capacity' according to locals. A chequered upbringing and early life, mixed with some convenient accidents and suspicious deaths of wealthy close friends of Bryant's; paints a picture of a ruthless man who would kill to get what he wanted. But the truth is far from this simple and clean cut. Accusations abound of US and Israeli military personnel carrying out the shooting and the whole operation being a false flag in order to trigger the national disdain for guns and their supported abolition in Australia from the mid 90s onward. Some other very interesting twists and turns in this case make these accusations and conspiracy rumours actually seem plausible. _____________________________Joining me on this episode is comedian Damian Clark and you can find all his stuff on his website here https://www.damianclark.com or follow him on Instagram for the craic https://www.instagram.com/damianclark/ where he shares his cartoons and stand up clips and its all really very good!

Malcolm X
DEEP DIVE - On this episode we discuss one of the most quoted and revered civil rights leaders of all time; a man whose ideological journey is sometimes truncated to serve political purposes; a man who the term 'died before his time' was created for; Malcolm X.Born Malcolm Little to a family of meagre means he grew to become one of the heads of the black nationalist organisation known as The Nation of Islam. With this vast and popular platform and a lifetime of prejudice encouraged by the teachings of black leaders like Marcus Garvey; Malcolm enthralled thousands of Black Americans with his rhetoric.But circumstances and allegiances changed quite quickly for Malcolm and with the interference of the CIA and FBI as well as sedition within his own organisation; Malcolm was marked for death as a figure that was just too popular and powerful to live. He died by the hands of assassins, former friends and colleagues and his passing left a sinister mark on the record of American Civil Rights. His life and teachings however are still discussed, taught and applauded in many different ideological circles. We talk about the man and his growth, his beginning and his end. A life well lived and ended too soon._______________________I am joined on this episode by Emmet Quinn and Gary Lynch.

Luka Magnotta
TRUE CRIME - On this episode we talk about a famed sick video maker, self anointed master criminal and star of the Netflix documentary series "Don't F**k with Cats" Luka Magnotta. Comedian Danny O'Brien joins me to chat about Luka and his sick scheme to capture the imaginations of internet sleuths to help him realise a twisted fantasy to commit a very public murder. Across continents and through the power of the internet Luka killed Jun Lin on camera and put it on the internet; while a team of internet nerds were manipulated in a cat and mouse game to track him down, he fled from North America to Europe in a wild 'Catch Me If You Can' style chase which resulted in his arrest.From Luka's admittedly rough and weird childhood to his gruesome execution of Chinese student Jun Lin he led a very strange and high risk life including dreams of becoming an actor and the nightmare of being forced to engage in depraved sexual acts for money!Great craic had with Danny O'Brien on this one and you can find Danny on IG http://www.instagram.com/dobcomedy or on his website http://www.gardengigsireland.com if you want to be kept up to date about his future dates or even book him for your own show in Ireland :D_______________________This podcast is supported by the generous donations of the wonderful folks over at Patreon.

Fleccas Talks
INTERVIEW - On this episode I have great craic with Austin Fletcher from the hilarious and brilliant YouTube channel Fleccas Talks. Austin takes to the streets and interviews real people with real opinions; and gets into some scrapes in some of the scenes of violence and endless protests and marches that America has been subjected to (both sides) for the last 4 years.On this episode we talk about Trump, the election, how he sees America, and what he thinks the future holds for the real America; the one he sees on the regular. What the future is for digital media and how censorship and a looming crackdown on free speech may influence mainstream media decay and the rise and rise of self created digital media.Great chat with a greta guy and you can find him on Twitter @Fleccas and Fleccas Talks on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIpwPuJsrboNnf200oV8cWQ_______________________This podcast is supported by the generous donations of the wonderful folks over at Patreon.
