Podcast 122: Denver Airport Conspiracies, WWI & the Birth of Modern Horror, Elizabeth Warren Fails to Medal in the Oppression Olympics, The Haunting of Hill House, and Our Favorite Horror Movies!

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, we seem to be getting dumber. To prove this beyond a reasonable doubt, we present to you three pieces of evidence:

EXHIBIT A:

  • Elizabeth Warren, after two years of taunting by Trump, releases a dubious DNA test that may (or may not) prove that she’s 1/1024th Indian. Now, most sane people would see this as evidence that they’re really not all that “native” after all, but noooo… not only does the mainstream media claim this is, “strong evidence” of her Native American ancestry, but Warren herself doubles down, blatantly exploiting it with a PR blitz and accompanying website, while simultaneously claiming she’s NEVER exploited her dubious claim EVER! How utter elitist, out of touch, and tone deaf can you get? Apparently, quite a lot.

So, Elizabeth Warren failed to medal in the Oppression Olympics. Or maybe she did medal. In which case we give her a Gold. So, congratulations, and here’s to you Fauxcahontas:

Okay, so that happened.

EXHIBIT B:

  • And then, while all this was going on, the Saudis were claiming that the brutal killing and dismemberment of a dissident journalist was simply, “an interrogation gone wrong”. No wait, it was, “a fight that got out of hand”. You know, those 15 to 1 fights ending with the chopping up of the loser that’s so common in diplomatic consulates these days.

Unbelievable.

For those interested in researching the Jamal Khashoggi case, it’s quite the complex and twisted rabbit hole indeed, and we may address this in future podcast. But for now, you can check out these links:

EXHIBIT C:

We’re in junior high… and we can blame Aleister Crowley.

Can you say, Idiocracy?

Adam, as usual, has nothing interesting to share, so he brings up the Denver Airport conspiracies, which is so 2011. Actually, the Denver Airport stuff is rather intriguing, so ignore our snarky attitude, as we’ll probably address this topic again.

Then, in the second half, John decides that what he wanted to talk about isn’t interesting either, so he and Adam decide to discuss their favorite horror movies instead.

Well, it’s only one more week until Halloween, so why the hell not. And… and… John actually recommends the new Netflix series, The Haunting of Hill House. Note: John hates most everything, so this comes as a bit of a shock.

And finally, find out what classic horror films John and Adam think are worthy of your time.

Hey, This Is Us (inside joke), so trust us. 😉
