Stupid Land: Don't Cross The Streams
Guys, I’m not gonna lie. Some stuff went down in this one. Yes, it’s once again a Stupid Land episode. And yes, that once again means you won’t find a single reliable fact in it. But this one…this one was different. it was an experience so intense that at the end, I felt like I needed a Silkwood shower. It went to new, different, and horrifying places. What makes this episode different from all other episodes? I…can’t tell you. I mean, there are legal implications. The proper authorities have asked me not to comment about an active investigation. But perhaps you can figure out what happened by listening to the recording I managed to smuggle out… And Frances…I’m sorry.

New! Qanon: How we got here - Russia collapses into conspiracy
Season 5, Ep. 5
Having finished our dissection of Fed conspiracies, we now move on to consider how the other great world power of the 20th Century ended up becoming a dysfunctional autocracy overwhelmed by conspiracies. We learn what makes Russian conspiracy culture unique (and uniquely damaging), so that we can better understand Q and our own homegrown crazy. Of course, part of the Q crazy also overlaps with the Russian crazy, so obviously, this whole thing is gonna take a while to dig through. Hope you enjoy. Drop us a line at email@example.com or join us on Facebook. See you in a couple of weeks.
New! Qanon: How we got here - JP Morgan Sinks the Titanic
Season 5, Ep. 4
The last gasp of our Fed-related shows, this covers the truly goofy shit--sordid plots to sink huge ships to keep people who don't oppose the Fed from...opposing the Fed. Angels shacking up with human women to spawn giants who found the Federal Reserve. Plus, some sensible discussion of problems (and potential solutions) for how the Fed works, complements of Mr. Greeley. Next time: RUSSIA, COMRADES!
New! Qanon: How we got here - The Fed the Bitcoin Bros, and the Goldbugs
Season 5, Ep. 3
Episode 3! We hope you like hearing Federal reserve conspiracy theories debunked, because boy, that's what you're getting this time. Thrill to the history of monetary policy. Experience the chills of arguing with bitcoin enthusiasts on Twitter! Seriously, though, our interviewee is great, and we think this is a really rare opportunity to learn some super-interesting stuff about the way the most complex and hidden parts of our economic system works. We hope you agree. Next time, a bunch of Really Crazy Shit. See you soon
