Unforeseen events required me to take a sudden leave from the office last week, but the Stuff to Blow Your Mind podcast must go on. Luckily, fellow HowStuffWorks podcaster Ben Bowlin popped in to help us out with a special guest appearance. The Stuff They Don't Want You To Know co-host is a student of conspiracy in all its forms, so in this episode he chats with Julie about the nature of conspiracy theories and just why our minds crave them so.
Plus, it makes for a rather nice April Fools Day treat -- especially since that interview with JFK's secret bigfoot love child fell through. Maybe next time, eh?I should also take a moment to mention my own personal favorite conspiracy theory: the notion that Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" is a coded admission that he directed the U.S. Government's fake moon landing.
Oh man, that one goes down sweet.
