Here is, belatedly, the podcast for episode 7. Here are the show notes:
Case and Mike discuss the nature of conspiracy theories, and why most of them fail the test of evidence, with a focus on the TV show “Conspiracy Theory” with Jessie Ventura and a pile of actors-cum-researchers with unknown credentials. Some time is also given to the fading birther theory, and the recent counter protest of the Westboro Baptist Church by the attendees of the San Diego ComiCon.
We had a series of new and interesting technical failures and issues while recording this episode, and while most of them managed to get fixed in the literal seconds before we went live, we apologize for the remaining sound issues with this recording.
The outages mentioned earlier continue, but I now have a band-aid in place to deliver material until I get the colocation server fixed.
