Parallel Universes with Michael Gardner

1/19/2018
More
Sometimes Lizard People can be pretty wacky. But sometimes we just want to settle down, chill out, and talk about what really separates quantum mechanics from religion when you get right down to it. Michael Gardner stopped by LP HQ to discuss parallel universe theory, and how it relates to the Mandela Effect and the Berenstein/Berenstain Bears debate. Did we slip into an alternate timeline? Are we simply misremembering our timelines? Do universes boing off each other like red balls off a...

Oh boy did we have fun with this one. Lorraine DeGraffenreidt stopped by to present all the evidence for the Simpsons in fact being an African-American family. Sound crazy? Just you wait.

The Philadelphia Experiment with Johnny Meeks

11/10/2017
More
The conspiracy theory surrounding the Philadelphia Experiment is the stuff of nightmares. Believers argue that in 1943, in an attempt to speed up the arms race in World War II, the US Navy successfully caused the USS Eldridge to become invisible, teleport, and travel in time - which resulted in the horrifying deaths of several crew members. But also, that probably didn’t happen. Or did it?!? Nah. Maybe? Let our illustrious guest, comedian and actor and writer and genius Johnny Meeks,...

Everyone knows Mother Teresa. Her name is synonymous with goodness and charity and lepers. But there are darker secrets lurking behind the myth and the sainthood. And if you follow the money, you might start to suspect that something is amiss, just like our guest returning fan favorite Jessica McClintock does. In fact, it may be possible that Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu (aka Saint Teresa) had ties to both the USSR and the US government, and that her purpose was never just to serve the poor....

Darth Jar Jar with Andy Kneis

9/29/2017

A ghost haunts the Star Wars universe. A poltergeist, whose idiot gibbering has tormented fans of the series for decades. His name… is Jar Jar Binks. Pretty much everyone hates the hapless Gungan, and he’s been written off as a failed attempt at comic relief from the wacky brain of George Lucas. But what if Jar Jar is more than that? What if he’s the dark force behind all the suffering and death of the prequels. What if Jar Jar himself is the Phantom Menace? Our guest this week is the...

Prepare your ears and gird your loins for possibly the filthiest episode of Lizard People ever. Our guest this week is Julie Brister, a bonafide comedy star with a list of tv credits a mile long and a passion for teaching and directing.
