Conspiracies, Politics, and Religion: Questioning Everything and Staying Uncomfortable

Episodes

If you’ve ever heard someone talking about Bitcoin or Cryptocurrency and found yourself wondering “What the **** is Bitcoin?”, but were maybe afraid to ask, for fear of looking stupid,… fear not, I am here as the representative for all who are ignorant to the topic. I had three knowledgable guests on, Jon Schweppe, Brad Moran, and David Hemphill, to educate me, hear out all my dumb questions, and shed some light on the topic. It was a fun, laid back, informative, impromptu discussion. I hope you enjoy it and maybe learn a thing or two. Enjoy.

Happy Birthday to me. It's my big 30 today, but more importantly the big 41 for the show. If you had told me 5 years ago, on my 30th birthday, I'd be hosting a podcast about sports, I would first say "what's a podcast?" and then laugh in your face. As most of you know, I'm the furthest thing from a "sports guy" you're going to find and the rest of you will find that very apparent within the first 10 sec of this discussion.

However, regardless of whether you're a sports fan or not, take it from me, the research and findings of my guest today are fascinating to dig into. Brian Tuohy is the go-to guy for all things in sports fixing and rigging conspiracy.

Who's behind it? Where's the proof? Why does it matter? All of that and more on today's episode of The System is Down, The Super Bowl was Rigged, as Most Sports Are w. Brian Tuohy. Enjoy!

On today's episode Craig, Justin, and I tackle the seig at Waco. It's a story that many have heard of, but few dig deep enough to understand what really went on and who was at fault for the slaughter of 76 American citizens. Was it a cult mass suicide or something far more sinister? Find out now on Waco: An American Tragedy (Pt. 1)

Life is strange. Sometimes you find yourself in a random stoke of luck where you get to work on a project with someone you admire. Other times that person you admire changes their mind and sues you in attempt to shut down the project you’ve poured a large chunk of your life and money into. On today’s episode, I had the great pleasure of talking with Room Full of Spoons director, Rick Harper about his upcoming film and it’s resulting legal battle with The Room director Tommy Wiseau. Enjoy!

Today's episode is the continuation of my discussion with Craig on the topic of #Pizzagate. The first half of this discussion was back in episode #32, so check that out first. This is an uncomfortable theory and topic and some of the content can get graphic in nature, so if you're a decent parent, you may want to listen to this one without the kids, just fair warning. 

At the end of the episode is the first segment with our new Bigfoot Correspondent and show supporter, Tyler Mills. So definitely stick around to the end for that. Enjoy.

On today's episode I had the great pleasure of chatting with podcaster, artist, and esoteric hip hop artist TruthSeekah about third eye awakening spirituality within Christianity and a whole bunch of other things that I previously knew borderline nothing about. Some may say he's crazy, some may say he's a shill of the devil,... I say he's a really nice guy with a lot of knowledge, but don't take my word for it. Decide for yourself on today's episode of The System is Down: Opening the Third Eye to Find Jesus.

Sometimes, I just like picking the brains of people who have different spiritual beliefs than I and getting to know more about what they think, how their faith works, and why they came to their current conclusions in life. So, today's episode is a conversation with former Lutheran, current Catholic and good friend of mine, Jon Schweppe. I never expect any human to have all the answers and I'm never on the attack in these chats, it's just a civil fact finding conversation that, I think we need more of in the world. So, if you disagree on points, or you think either or both of us is wrong, that's totally fine. You're a human, so you're probably wrong too. Let's get weird.

On today's episode we break our typical uncomfortable chats format to celebrate the greatest film franchise in human history, Star Wars. I invited five fellow Star Wars fanatics on to have a big round table discussion about all things Star Wars, as this weekend is the release of the latest installment, Episode 8, The Last Jedi. In addition to this nearly two hour long discussion, we also recorded a bonus hour where we argued The Force Awakens vs Rogue One. The bonus episode got heated and even more entertaining, so don't miss that. For access to the bonus hour and all of our large weekly updated backlog of bonus content, you can join The Downers Club for as little as $1 per month, help support the show, and be a part of something really fun by going to http://tsidpod.com/support. However, there's so much here to get into that you should really stop wasting your time reading and start listening to the FIRST EVER TSID STAR WARS CELEBRATION! Enjoy.
