October is conspiracy month. Alert the media.
I’m not lying about this. Today a man called our office and said John Kennedy has been held at the Pentagon since 1963. The caller also said he was the legal prime minister of Canada. That’s two major conspiracies in one short phone call. I didn’t take the call. I wish I had.
Because I like to keep the podcasts to between 10 and 20 minutes, I’ve decided to just throw up my hands and concede that the whole month is going to be about conspiracy theories.
Last week I told you about those dots on mailboxes. This week and next I’ll mostly be playing an interview I did with a University of Washington professor who once specialized in studying conspiracy theories. Then, in the final week of October I’ll tell you about a conspiracy theory I might be inclined to believe.
There is nothing like Halloween to put you in the right spirit for conspiracies, and nothing like conspiracy theories to give juice to your imagination as the holiday we will all be banished to Hell for celebrating approaches.
Just ask First Baptist Senior Pastor Robert Jeffress. Halloween celebrators, Muslims, Buddhists and Mormons will all be in Hell together. I hope there’s good Italian food.
Part two in the conspiracy airs Friday. Aloha.
