The Paranoid Strain
Historical political conspiracies, part 1
Brand. Spanking. New. Content.
Welcome back. This episode inaugurates a nice, long run of new stuff that should lead all the way up to the U.S. Presidential election, assuming we're still gonna go ahead and hold that thing. We figured that, for the back half of this historically weird year, it might be appropriate for us to focus on the fact that throughout our history, all the way back to the colonial period, Americans (especially white Americans) have been obsessed with conspiracies that they imagine one or another group to be scheming about in one or another smoke-filled back room. In this first part, we not only do our introductory skit thing, but go over a couple of important conspiracy phases of pre-America--Native American, and later the Salem Witch conspiracies. We hope you dig it. More to come in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, join our Facebook group, subscribe on Youtube, and drop us a line at theparanoidstrain at gmail.
