On September 11th 2014 we launched our podcast and companion website and YouTube channel with the fevered, adolescent dream of being able to make a podcast about Conspiracy Theories and have actually have people download and listen to it! Well, amazingly, that has become a reality, and you have responded in your hundreds of thousands, we have won awards for the website and spent months at the top of the podcast charts and now with your help we could make it a more polished and professional show that can exist as a candid repository of alternative beliefs, mentalities and world views.OUR MANIFESTO:
We wanted to catalogue and compile all manner of conspiracy from the unseen hands that guide societies to the unexplained oddities that have raised questions for millennia. Every episode we select an intriguing topic and tirelessly research and contemplate all the facts, rumours and sources available on the internet. We analyse this easily available material and cast a critical eye over it; discussing the validity of its sources and its credibility as fact.
We then present this information in a conversational and entertaining manner, not all serious and shouty. We don't flinch from the humour in any topic, or the taboo nature of the information we find. We approach all topics fairly and evenly with an open mind and a skeptics eye and we are able to decant this deluge of alternative info into your ear holes. We dont hold back as far as conversation and contemplation onthe topic goes and the episodes can last up to 7 hours! Each show take about 100 hours to produce, between production, research from all presenters, recording, editing and publishing and promotion.
No topic is too delicate or outlandish (except the ones with the really good lawyers) and we want to make it palatable for everyone from beginners to experts. If you have ever been at a party and overheard someone talking, jabbering on about jet fuel and its rumoured inability to melt steel beams and you wanted to join the conversation, then this is the place for you. It's tough to talk about these topics in work or with family and friends, or while making love to your significant other, and maybe you have questions that you don't feel comfortable taking anywhere else; but you can browse our website, listen to our podcasts or watch our YouTube channel and get some of the answers to the questions that you were afraid to ask that guy at the party with the dreads smoking a long bifter.
It's tough to find information out there in the murky mire of the internet and even tougher to decipher and contextualise this rambling mass of news reports, robotic voiced documentaries, anonymous rumour milling and misrepresented media sound bites. We trawl through all this information and disseminate it into a palatable, relatable, funny and entertaining format all while keeping the information flowing. A lot of people say its like listening to a bunch of their own mates talking and teaching them!
Have you ever seen a piece of news and thought this can't be real?
Do you wonder about the future of humanity and the possibility of extra terrestrial life?
Do you believe in paranormal phenomena, but have no way to begin searching for the answers you need?
Do you feel that there are hidden forces or secret organisations behind the operations of governments, militaries and religions to control humanity?
Are you afraid of, so called Conspiracy Theories, but are still interested in alternative viewpoints and want to explore these options without having to pour over long winded documents and documentaries?
Then let us do the hard work for you and let us package said information into an honest and entertaining show that you can enjoy wherever you like. This podcast is for everyone, from the average guy on the street to a die hard conspiracy nut, and we want to bring you the great conspiracies of time immemorial to the ones unfolding around us everyday. We avoid the tinfoil hat merchants and poorly crafted sci-fi stories and fake news, to bring you conspiracies and true crime stories that you have heard about and more that you haven’t.
Patreon is a community that help artists like us, connect with their audience and develop and evolve with subscriptions from fans. It's more interactive than ads and more sustainable than once off donations, and our Patreon campaign gives you the opportunity to get access to exclusive material that the general public won't ever see and even join in in the conversation with us every month. The main podcast episodes will always remain free, and all the videos we make will be freely available on our YouTube channel. But what we give you access to, is the rarest glimpse of how it's put together and how we make the show that you love. We also share behind the scenes footage of making the show, and we really like to interact and converse with our fans here on Patreon and on social media to further the conversation.
We have developed a set of milestones that will increase both our output and our ability to interact with our fans. It declares what we need to be able to advance into a fully committed output schedule, which means more stuff from us, for you to enjoy.
The tiers you can choose here describe the benefits of subscribing and how you are making a change in our lives, however large or small. We appreciate every dollar you pledge and we promise to make Those Conspiracy Guys the best it can be. If everyone who listened to the most recent show would give one dollar, only once, then we would be able to make a network TV level YouTube channel so every little bit helps, really!
Your subscriptions will go towards the running costs and maintenance of the podcast, website and YouTube channel including: our hosting service, our tracking software, numerous paid services for research, production and collaboration, artists and designers for our merchandise and website, remuneration for our guests and content creators, and finally audio and video recording equipment and software. Eventually, we want to turn your subscription into a living wage so we can concentrate fully and dedicate our time completely to the show. We have added a couple of new members to the TCG family lately and we really want to reward them for their effort.
Thank you for taking the time to look at and understand our Patreon campaign and we hope you'll be happy with where the future brings us all.
