Episode 13

Assassinations (non-JFK edition)

My, my, my. Have two months flown by already? Where does the time go?

Thanks for all of your concern–I safely escaped from the clutches of the Chads, though at the loss of significant dignity (and sanity). And to celebrate, I made you a piping hot podcast episode. Hold on. It needs to cool for a few minutes. Don’t burn yourself.

This is the first of our two assassination episodes. In part one, we cover a huge swath of very bloody history, culminating in the senseless murders of two important Americans within a few months of each other in 1968. Along the way, we explain why we can know that some victims of assassination were the target of conspiracies (Caesar and Lincoln), while others weren’t (MLK and RFK). We also explore some conspiracy theory cinema in our new Paranoid Strain goes to the Movies segment.

Next month, as you would probably guess, we hunt the biggest conspiracy theory game of all–the JFK assassination. Until then, enjoy what has turned out to be one of our very favorite episodes. And please let us know what you think, at [email protected], or on our friendly neighborhood Facebook group.

As always, thank you for listening.
