Episode Info:

Mick West is the founder of Meta Bunk, a website & forum dedicated to the art and pastime of honest, polite, scientific investigating and debunking. He's appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience, and is also the creative mind behind the Tony Hawk Skating video games. Mick will release a new book, "Escaping the Rabbit Hole: How to Debunk Conspiracy Theories Using Facts, Logic, and Reason", in September. The boys have been waiting a lifetime for this conspiracy theory show with Mick West (especially Mickey!) so they're a bit star-struck this week. Mick doesn't disappoint. He gets off to a flying start by debunking Mickey's points that we all think about our governments: Do they lie to us? Are they really as manipulative as we are led to believe? Staying with government theme, Jimmy wonders if Trump derangement syndrome could be a real medical condition or not. Mickey and Mick then take us through some conspiracies, starting with the New World Order then moving onto 9-11 and if thermite was found in the World Trade Center ruins, how Building 7 collapsed and the "spooky" news coverage. Mick and the guys finish off with special ops and pyramids on Antartitica. They also discuss the psychology of WHY people love conspiracies as much as they do and why they tie their identities into them.
