Episode 3: The Anti-Vaccine Movement

I sat down and talked to Dave Brodbeck about the anti-vax movement and had a fun discussion about vaccines and autism, between which there is no connection according to the scientific literature. Dave is an associate professor of psychology at Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, and has an autistic son. I was a bit nervous, or just under the influence of nervous energy. I think this will be a topic worth revisiting for many more of the conspiracy angles that surround it.

PS--Remember, last week's episode does not exist.

Episode 3: This Episode Does Not Exist

I know I said I wasn't doing a show this week, but this couldn't wait. Jade Helm 15 conspiracies blew up rather quickly and left me feeling a bit overwhelmed. I decided that I had to mention a couple of headlines that appeared to be written with this show in mind. I don't comment much on them, but they are pretty entertaining reads.

Satoru Iwata conspiracy

Pluto Truthers?

Episode 2: Jade Helm 15

Why all the fuss about a military training exercise in the US? I'm flying solo this week to discuss the upcoming exercise that the US military will be conducting in the southwestern part of the country. The exercise takes place from July 15 until September 15, 2015. Naturally, given the current administration and the paranoid state of the conspiracy theorists out there, this operation is getting some attention of the nutty kind.

Episode 1: The Shadow People

In this first episode of The Illuminati Social Club, I am joined by MaharajaMackDaddy (MMD for short) to discuss and laugh about the "mysterious" phenomena of the shadow people. They lurk in the corner of your eyes, they come from a different dimension, they are unexplained except by people claim to be able to explain them. We don't talk to those people, though, we laugh about them.
