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.

You will get access to awesome exclusive content and be able to interact with us like you're the favourite in the family!
Aileen Wournos
TRUE CRIME - On this episode we talk about Americas first female serial killer and one of the most tragic stories of abuse and poverty you can imagine; this is Aileen Wournos. From the most dysfunctional and abusive upbringing, Aileen dragged herself out of her hometown and hitch hiked across America, partaking in loads of anti social behaviour; arrests; crimes and selling her body along the way. Aileen's behaviour escalated and she began to take some sort of deadly revenge against the men who abused her and began killing her clients. She began a seemingly loving relationship with a woman and the cycle of murder, larceny, and fraud started in earnest. This is a story of someone who fell into a life that they couldnt escape and it eventually swallowed them entirely! Arrested, tried and eventually executed Aileen Wournos is a harrowing tale of a wretched unfortunate soul who ended up being documented by film makers and immortalised as a tragic case of inescapable circumstance. We talk about this; what drove her to these crimes; her history and the proceedings of her case; and the sociological theories behind someone in her unenviable position. ________________________Joining me on this episode is comedian and academic in sociology Grainne McKeever and you can find her online here http://www.twitter.com/grainnemckeever and you can watch her Ted Talk here https://youtu.be/g91vop8aSik________________________This podcast is supported by the generous donations of the wonderful folks over at Patreon.

Bob Marley
DEEP DIVE - On this episode we discuss arguably the most famous musician to have ever lived; a man who not only pioneered a music but a movement and while preaching a message of peace through his songs, was repeatedly violently attacked and tragically died before his time; Bob Marley.From a meagre start in the streets of Trenchtown, Jamaica to the dizzy heights of international super stardom, Bob Marley wanted to do more than just sing songs and make money. His mission was to heal through music, to heal what hurts the soul and to heal a broken system that was the cause of the suffering of so many. In this endeavour he made some powerful friends and equally powerful enemies and attempts on his life caused him to have to leave Jamaica. Bob Marley's music and meaning still endure today, as moving and poignant as it ever was. His death, however tragic and untimely, has also been alleged to have been a further plot to silence his powerful voice. ________________________Joining me on this episode are Edwin Sammon and Emmet Quinn.

Peter Stumpp
TRUE CRIME - On this episode we go all the way back to the 16th century to chat about a real sick puppy; The Werewolf of Bedburg, Peter Stumpp. An occult document details the story of Peter Stumpp and his despicable misdeeds such as killing and eating women and children and loads of other depraved animalistic satanic stuff.Stumpp apparently made a deal with the devil for the enviable power to turn into a wolf man at will and commit these atrocities. He was found guilty and put on trial; but we discuss the legitimacy of these legal proceedings and whether this was a hysterical monster manifestation to temporarily quell the tsunami of spiritual suspicion in Germany at the time.________________________Joining me on this episode is actor and comedian Tony Cantwell who has multiple podcasts on the go including 'Tony Cantwell's HitShow' and the cryptozoological comedy podcast 'Sexy Beasts'.

TRUE CRIME - On this episode we talk about one of the most important contemporary internet figures and how his ingenuity, innovation and imagination changed the face of the internet culture we know today and has set forth a standard by which the governments of the world should maintain the great global resource of the World Wide Web, this one is all about the life and death of Aaron Swartz.Aaron was a child prodigy and from his early life to his tragic and untimely death he sought to make his dreams for the world come true. A suspiciously timed suicide and a slew of government level infractions fraught Aarons life with stress and legal turmoil, but through it all he managed to leave an indelible mark on the culture and on the world.________________________Im joined in this episode by Dystropia podcast presenter and internet warlock Johnny Lynch.

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. A lesser known killer, as murderer charts go; his story is one of manipulation, coercion, and deceit using the crutch of decorum and public decency as his shield against his despicable crimes. _______________________Joining me is comedian Betsy Speer and you can follow Betsy on all social media @BetsySpeerComedy and she runs a comedy night live stream on YouTube every Wednesday called Curtain Call Comedy which you can find here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSBQdwGMQZ028I1JlXfLPbg_______________________This podcast is supported by the generous donations of the wonderful folks over at Patreon.

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.

INTERVIEW - On this episode I chat with podcast legend Greg Carlwood from the mighty Higherside Chats and we get into it about current events including the rona and the coming vax issues facing our society; the election (which was upcoming at the time of recording); and where the US is heading in this current binary bipartisan and diametrically opposed culture we seem to find ourselves in. Greg has researched and then spoken to some of the finest minds of our time and his show is unreal. Im a fan for more than 7 years and his interviews are by far some of the best in podcasting! The guests and depth of knowledge Greg gleans from them means that he would have to learn a thing or two on the way and in this interview I try to find out where his info is coming from and we both check our sources. Hope you enjoy this one and sorry for the delay in release; I got a bit poorly there! :( Its all explained in the intro!_______________________You can find all the Higherside Chats info, merch, tickets, shows and other content here at the website https://www.thehighersidechats.com which includes the THC+ program; which is a subscription to THC where you get a whole extra hour of every interview!
