Welcome to Armchaired & Dangerous

The monthly podcast I do about conspiracy theories and all things dangerous


This is just a quick note about a podcast I do. It’s called Armchaired & Dangerous, and I’m lucky enough to do it with Dax Shepard and Monica Padman. They run the hugely popular Armchair Expert — and our podcast is a spinoff, you could say. I’m in New Zealand most of the time, and they’re in LA (although I’m off to visit them next month).

A&D comes out once a month, and it’s usually about conspiracy theories. Not always, but a lot of the time.

The podcast is morphing and changing as we go, but usually it sees me interviewing a couple of experts about a certain “dangerous” topic, and then sharing those conversations with Dax and Monica. And then we dive in deep and break it all down.

Armchaired & Dangerous is found wherever you listen to podcasts — these are some episodes we’ve done so far:

  1. The Pilot episode
    How this whole thing started, really: I break down the big ideas about conspiracy theory culture.

  2. Lizard People and David Icke
    We go deep into David Icke, the British idiot behind anti-5G conspiracy theories, hollowed-out moon bases, and reptilian shapeshifters.

  3. Mole Children
    We discuss what lead a normally peaceful father living in Los Angeles to derail a train in an attempt to hit a Navy ship housing mole children

  4. The Bigfoot episode (with former congressman Denver Riggleman)
    We talk about the main Bigfoot theories, from biological entities to inter-dimensional teleporting Bigfoots. I also talk to an outgoing republican congressman who claims to have been chased by the hairy man himself.

  5. The 9/11 episode (with Loose Change’s Dylan Avery):
    I break down some of the weirder theories around what happened on September 11, including the hologram theory — the idea is that some sort of magical hologram system created a highly realistic hologram which convinced witnesses and cameras that they were seeing an aircraft approach and collide with the Twin Towers. And I speak to Dylan Avery, the man behind the first ever viral documentary that took Google Video by storm. Yes, this was before YouTube.

  6. The JFK assassination episode (with JFK researcher Robin Brown, and ABC’s chief legal analyst Dan Abrams)
    As well as looking at who killed JFK, we look at who assassinated the assassin. And how this all ties into an episode of Star Trek. Yep.

We have plenty more episodes coming up and I’m excited to share them with you.

Here on Webworm I send out newsletters to compliment each episode, too — like this one debunking 9/11 conspiracy theories, or this one about the JFK assassination.
