Comedy Podcasts

Have you ever lain awake at night pondering the big questions as you stare at the ceiling, waiting for the ever impending embrace of death? Questions like: “Why do people think the earth is flat?”, or, “Who came up with the idea of Reptilian overlords?”, and of course, “Is Donald Trump actually president? How did this happen and are we positive that we’re not just living in a nightmare?” - Well, here at the Cognitive Contortions Podcast we attempt to answer those questions, and many, many more. Our highly untrained and certainly unqualified team of investigator, (there’s only one), works tiredly, (seriously, this stuff is exhausting), to bring as much information to the table as possible. Using the most advanced databases and search optimization available in today’s modern age, (google), the self proclaimed amateur experts discuss and answer claims of conspiracy and theory. Please don’t let these burning, most important questions of our time keep you awake any longer, join us while four idiots, Tyler, Scott, Aaron and other Tyler, crush on Keanu Reeves, reference Star Wars, play pointless games and sort of talk about conspiracy theories; and you too can have, “peace of mind.” (T-Rex hands)
