Trump and The Flynns vs. The Law (E277)

5/5/2024
Relatives of Michael Flynn tried and failed to sue CNN because they didn’t like being associated with QAnon (despite saying “Where we go one we go all” on camera.) The QAnon community reacts to Donald Trump’s ongoing legal woes. And Jesse Watters continues to prove that he’s the most Q pilled of all the Fox News hosts.

Fear And Sheriffs In Las Vegas feat. David Gilbert (E276)

4/28/2024
So-called “Constitutional Sheriffs” fancy themselves as the real life version of Judge Dredd: the ultimate arbiters of the law according to their interpretation of the Constitution. Recently the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) held a conference in Las Vegas. Among the speakers were regular features of the podcast disgraced former General Michael Flynn, convicted former County Clerk Tina Peters, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell. Our guest WIRED reporter David Gilbert attended the conference, and he told us all about what he saw at this gathering of conspiracists and pseudolaw enthusiasts.

Premium Episode 241: Radium Toothpaste (Sample)

4/23/2024
On June 13th, 1996, the leader of a Long Island UFO group was charged with conspiracy to poison local conservative leaders with the most absurdly deranged of methods. His motive? Retribution for the political cover-up of UFO activity in the area. Brad Abrahams joins us to tell this bizarre and melancholy tale of the alien obsessed John J. Ford. We unravel if John really was criminally insane, or if he was entrapped for getting too close to a real life, albeit more terrestrial cover-up. Jake reads some powerful UFO poetry, Travis daydreams about arcane murder methods, and Julian cowers in fear from his secretly sadistic co-hosts. It’s time to squeeze out some phosphorescent toothpaste and enjoy an episode of the Long Island X-Files.

Anti-Chemtrails Laws feat. Teddy Wilson (E275)

4/20/2024
Though the “chemtrails” conspiracy theory has long been dismissed by scientists, aviation experts, and other skeptics, the Tennessee legislature has taken it very seriously. On April 11th, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed into law SB2691, which bans the ‘intentional injection, release, or dispersion’ of chemicals within Tennessee ‘with the express purpose of affecting temperature, weather, or the intensity of the sunlight.” Though the law doesn’t explicitly use the word chemtrails, it was inspired by chemtrail conspiracy theorists. On this episode we talk to independent journalist Teddy Wilson of Radical Reports about the anti-chemtrails bills in Tennessee and other state legislatures.

Premium Episode 240: The Machines Are Lying To You (Sample)

4/17/2024
Even in the early conversations discussing the rapid growth of artificial intelligence, there was always the fear that it could potentially fall into the wrong hands. Unfortunately, the QAA team is here to tell you that it has. It is definitely already in the wrong hands. And that’s mostly due to the fact that sophisticated AI algorithms are available to anyone with an internet connection. Conspiracy theorists have a brand-new tool at their disposal to further muddy the waters between what is real and what is not. But it wasn’t always this way. Jake tracks the humble beginnings of AI interacting with social media users while Travis breaks down how it's been used to mess with our brains more recently. One thing is clear however, AI is here to stay… and it has already replaced the QAA hosts.

Episode 273: The Tartarian Empire

4/2/2024
According to the Tartarian Empire conspiracy theory there once existed a massive, advanced regime that stretched over much of the Asian continent. This Empire’s power was so great that they built structures all over the world, including in Africa, North America and South America. Buildings such as the White House in Washington D.C. and the Great Pyramids in Egypt were built by the great, globe spanning Tartarian empire. They were able to accomplish this in part thanks to advanced technology that is lost to time, like batteries powered by the Earth which distributed electricity wirelessly. This theory has spawned a community of people who pour through old European maps and pictures of 19th century buildings in search of evidence for this lost empire, then post their findings on Reddit and Tik tok. But was there really a lost empire called “Tartaria?” Or have conspiracy theorists on the internet misinterpreted an archaic European term for parts of Asia then proceeded to desperately search for evidence of a better world that was lost to time?

Episode 272: Solar Eclipses And The Politics of Fear feat. Arthur Goldwag

Americans sure love being paranoid. And they’re not always paranoid for sensible reasons, like ever-expanding corporate and governmental surveillance systems.

On March 6th, 2024, the Pentagon published a sixty-three-page report on the AARO’s findings in regard to whether our own government is in possession of extraterrestrial technology. The report stretches all the way back to the 1940’s, and provides a comprehensive look into the ever transforming secret programs created to determine whether or not the truth IS, in fact, actually out there. Two Fox Mulders (Jake & Brad) and one Scully (Travis) pour through the pages of the recently de-classified docs searching for answers. Is the government in possession of actual flying saucers?

Trickle Down Episode 19: Graphic Corruption (Sample)

3/8/2024
In the 1940s and 50s there was the great American comic book scare. Many serious adults warned that comic books were turning young people into illiterate, criminally violent, sexually deviant political extremists. There were several editorials in newspapers that argued as much. There were groups who organized literal comic book burnings. Local jurisdictions passed laws to limit the sale of comic books. There was even a televised congressional hearing on comic books by the United States Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency. This was a widespread phenomena that can’t be laid at the feet of any one person. But there is one person who did more than anyone to legitimize this panic: Dr. Fredric Wertham. He was a well-credentialed German-American psychiatrist best known for his anti-comics book Seduction of the Innocent: The Influence of Comic Books on Today’s Youth. The scientific worthlessness of Wertham’s theories has been clear to historians of comic books and even some of his contemporaries. However, it wasn’t until 2012, three decades after his death, that the full extent of the worthlessness of his anti-comic book work was revealed. After a historian was able to read his raw clinical notes for the first time, it was discovered that many claims in his book Seduction of the Innocent were wholly fabricated. His anti-comic book claims weren’t merely the product of sloppy science, but lies and distortions.

Episode 269: Ummo Mania!

3/1/2024
What is UMMO? The greatest hoax of all time? A secret society with a mysterious agenda? An intelligence agency psyop? Or genuine contact from space aliens? Brad and Jake will attempt to answer these questions, and they’ve kidnapped Julian and Travis to come along for the intergalactic ride. In the 1960s, a group of Spanish societal elites received a bevy of letters and phone calls from purported extra-terrestrial visitors. Each communication was tailored to their specific field and contained advanced technical details and theories. At the same time, multiple witnesses reported a number of compelling UFO sightings, leaving behind physical evidence bearing the Ummite symbol. This contact was to become a decades-long affair that convinced multiple esteemed scientists, subverted Franco regime censorship, and left 1300 pages of alien writings to be poured over and debated for a generation. It also left destruction and misery in its wake, with at least two dangerous cults inspired by the lore. One may still be active to this day. Will we find the madman trickster genius manipulator behind it all? Let the IBOZOO UU and WAAM WAAM flow through you, and experience all that is UMMO.
