Monsanto Politics – The Roster

As we mentioned in our Monsanto episode, the scope of the biotech behemoth's influence doesn't stop at the purse strings of the farmers that they intimidate. Nor does it end with the public who are sometimes unwittingly ingesting their genetically modified products and weedkillers. It doesn't even end with the war chest available to them for dodgy but ostensibly legal activities like lobbying, costly lawsuits and ousting/absorbing any competition that might sprout up in their field. Their reach extends all the...

Monsanto

Is Monsanto Evil? On this Podcast we turn to the true fuel of the masses for the global debate with implications on the very future health of humanity. The topic of genetically modified organisms has become the dominant talking point in the world of modern agricultural industry. And at the very heart of that industry, and at the heart of the genetically modified seeds on which it runs, is one company. Monsanto has become synonamous with the very charicature of...

Psychedelics and the Awakening of Consciousness

Psychedelics and the Awakening of Consciousness On this Podcast we snuffle out some truffles of the magic variety as we ponder the nature of psychedelics and the awakening of consciousness. The psychotropic drugs that have for countless of millennia been an esoteric cornerstone of human culture. Some theorize they even played an invaluable effect on hominid evolution and produced the the first fully sentient mind on the path to homo sapiens. A kaleidoscopic array of mind altering substances exist today....

The Illuminati

The Illuminati: Is there really a secret society? On this Podcast we pull back the veil of illusion and intrigue as we go in search of the fabled Order of the Illuminati. The shadowy secret society said to be sitting atop the eye of the global pyramid of conspiracy. For over two centuries the rumors surrounding them have swirled. Today the very name has become synonymous with the theories of a group of elite's tied together by ancient aristocratic bloodlines....

The Zika Virus

Zika Virus On this Blab we we expose ourselves to the latest global health scare whose collection of conspiracies threaten to outstrip the worrying spread of the infected. The Zika Virus has become headline news across the world as it's sweep of shocking side effects have given rise to rampant rumors. With the mass worldwide stage of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro providing the perfect breeding ground for a public panic surrounding the incredible unknowns and...

What is the largest spider in the world?

You will be forgiven for giving this article a miss, but the question was raised in our D.U.M.Bs episode of really how big the biggest spider on Earth is, and has had us wondering the answer ever since. So in line with our mandate here on Those Conspiracy Guys we thought we'd scour the internet and subject ourselves to skin crawling pictures of giant spiders in order to provide you with a succinct terror free answer to add to the...

Should you punch a shark in the nose? It depends what he said about...

In our 'D.U.M.Bs in Dulce' episode we mentioned the Ampullae of Lorenzini, the extra sense of electro-reception possessed by sharks and some of their close relatives through a set of salty gel filled tubes dotted about the mouth and nose of sharks that act as voltmeters. The Ampullae amplify incoming electric signals and a nerve cluster at the bottom of each ampulla detect electrical impulses, changes in water temperature that affect ambient voltage and even the tiny electric charge...

THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON DRUGS!

For years debate over the use of psychedelics has raged within the minds of Conspiracy Guys. But it's always been a long held belief that they expand the mind by opening up new neural pathways. If only mainstream science would turn it's well funded eye towards research that could change public perception of the use and value of psychotropics such as psilocybin mushrooms, LSD, DMT and Ayohuasca. Well some nerds have been at it, and wired.com has brought us this incredible...

St Anthony’s Fire

Ergotism is the effect of long term poisoning due to the ingestion of the alkaloids that infects rye and other cereals. It also may have been the cause of a mass hallucination that caused a rash of werewolf sightings in 16th century Europe. I have eaten of the root of St. Anthony's fire, ergo, I have become the wolf. Though this particular Wikipedia entry does not site ergotism as the cause of the reports of werewolves and baby snatching canines it does...

What really is the difference between Manatees and Dugongs?

In our Mermaids episode we mention the long held theory that the Manatee and it's seagrass eating cousin the Dugong may account for many of the historical Mermaid sightings. That and rum, cabin fever, scurvy, hallucinations and lies. Oh, and possibly Mermaids. But what we found ourselves asking was: what really is the difference between Manatees and Dugongs? Unsurprisingly it's not a huge amount really. Both are of the Sirenia species of sea mammals, and as mentioned earlier they are cousins. They are however...

The Missing Link doesn’t exist, it may just be a different branch off our...

Here's a really interesting article by the Observation Deck website entitled The Missing Link FAQs they explain the rise of the 'Missing Link' in popular science. The 'Missing Link' is the idea that there is a stage in human evolution as yet undiscovered that bridges our ancestry with the rest of the animal kingdom. It seems the term was coined in 1851 by Charles Lyell in relation to an undocumented rock formation stage which he dubbed 'the missing link'. Later in...

The Aquatic Ape Theory

Here's a quick 5 minute video explaining the hypothesis that man has a branch of our evolutionary tree that may well have evolved differently to our homo sapiens selves. Certainly new evolutionary thinking suggests our 'missing link' may well be undiscovered off shoots of our ancestral brothers. The hypothesis here supposes our propensity for water, and other physical traits that point to possible suitability to an underwater environment. Check it out and let us know what you think of this new hypothesis. To...

Elaine Morgan says we evolved from aquatic apes

In this video Elaine Morgan give us the theories behind this pseudoscientific study into the evolution of man. She asks questions of modern science, and why they are still struggling with missing parts of our evolutionary history. Aquatic Ape Theory suggests that we developed from Apes, surely, but how are humans and apes so similar yet so different. Many anthropologists suggest that this was our time in the water. An almost amphibious age in our development, would lead us to...

Dupers Delight

Mark Bingham, the United 93 hero who shouted 'Let's Roll' before charging at the terrorists and saving the white house; made a call to his mother Alice Hoagland and announces 'Hi Mom, this is Mark Bingham'. Ok, formal, but maybe she is a busy woman, she doesn't have time to be guessing who is calling her Mom on the phone. In these videos Alice Hoagland gives emotional testimony about his last call from the plane's phone. But did Mark actually...
