Those Conspiracy Guys

Gordon Rochford

Those Conspiracy Guys is a comedy, history and True Crime podcast based in Ireland and deals with everything from the out-there conspiracy theories like aliens, time travel, and ancient civilisations to the more grounded, historical and provable conspiracies like political and financial corruption, scientific chicanery and secret government agency shenanigans. From the high concept topics like inter dimensional lizard men, complicated assassination plots and future technology like alternative simulated universes to the much more tangible topics like discussing serial killers and mysterious disappearances, exploring religions and cult leaders and examining unbelievable true crime cases.

The Menendez Brothers

The Menendez Brothers
TRUE CRIME - On this episode we discuss a harrowing case of abuse and revenge; two brothers who killed their parents in a brutal and meticulously premeditated manner were paraded across the mainstream media as cold hearted killers. During the televised case however, the extent of the sexual and psychological abuse they suffered was described in sickening detail and the motivations for their actions became that much more murkily motivated. This time we are talking about The Menendez Brothers. Raised in an affluent California family, Lyle and Erik Menendez were what some would call privileged; but their upbringing was anything but idyllic. Their father Jose and mother Kitty were successful but cruel, and the very thing that made the brothers a success was the thing they despised. Verbal and psychical abuse was meeted out on them from both parents and when they finally snapped and killed them both in a shotgun bloodbath, the world looked on with disgust. Lawyer Leslie Abramson, who advocated for the boys in court during their lengthy televised trial, was visibly appalled and angered at the abuse they suffered. This 1993/1994 trial called more witnesses than any other murder trial in history and ended up with no satisfying solution; going to another trial which led to the conviction of the two brothers who still reside in prison. A very strange and sad case that deserves discussion; not least to shine a light on the victims of domestic and sexual abuse; but on the voyeuristic and cruel nature of modern mainstream media. ________________________ Joining me on this episode is comedian and raconteur Danny O'Brien; now world famous, has gigged everywhere from Dublin to Dubai, from Clonmel to Costa Rica.

Rasputin and The Romanovs
18-10-2022
Rasputin and The Romanovs
On this episode we discuss one of the most maligned and mysterious figures from modern history; a man who is as famous for his death as for his life, and someone like him would put the willies up anyone in power because he was an uncontrollable and unpredictable force; this episode is all about Rasputin. Shambling into St Petersburg from the Siberian countryside in the early days of the 20th century; is how most people would view the tale of Rasputin; but the truth is often stranger. As part of a campaign of popularity and spectacle in a turn of the century royal socialite influencer class, Rasputin was invited to the royal court as part of some sort of esoteric oddity and was so charming he managed to become one of the Tsarinas closest advisors. Rasputins massive shlong and love making prowess is also part of the legend and this, along with his unroyal blood made the movers and shakers in Romanov controlled Russia quite nervous. Rasputin was rumoured to be utterly debauched and his strange unkempt appearance, his uncouth charm and his loose morals meant that he was a threat to the status quo. The legendary tale of the assassination of Rasputin probably over shadows anything he did in life and is itself wrought with rumour and inconsistency. Murdered by jealous royal in-laws, Rasputin's legend endures and we go deep and long on it for this episode! ________________________ Joining me for this one are comedians Tom O'Mahony and Micky Bartlett and we get deep on The Mad Monk.

The Keepers - The Death of Cathy Cesnik

The Keepers - The Death of Cathy Cesnik
On this episode the wonderful Claire joins me to talk about the horrible case of the death of Cathy Cesnik and the abuse that Fr Joseph Maskell doled out on the girls of Keough High School in Baltimore as detailed in the Netflix documentary series The Keepers. This is a rough one and we dive deep into the personalities involved including the two investigators Abbie Schaub and Gemma Hoskins who hounded law enforcement for documents pertaining to the case as well as doing emotionally harrowing interviews with some of the women involved.  We also meet Jean Werner and Teresa Lancaster who were the original accusers of Maskell. We also meet Gerry Koob and a host of other weird and inexplicably uninformed characters as we try to unravel the details of the case. Cathy's body was found in the first days of 1970 and it sparked an investigation into the cruel and methodical abuse that Maskell was a ring leader of, in Keough High School among other spots all around Baltimore in the 1960s. This case goes all the way to the top; with police and other pillars of the community seemingly caught up in the accusations. ________________________ If you want to follow TCG on social platforms including the TCG Guilded Server; watch video versions of the livestream podcast and documentaries; or even join in on live chats about current events; buy TCG merch; get notifications of tickets you can buy to upcoming live stage shows or any other way to connect with me; all the available links, info and instructions you can find by clicking this link you want to throw a few bucks up the internet to support the show on Patreon you can get exclusive Patreon-Only content; all seasons of ad-free episodes; exclusive access to live chats and private social media like Instagram and Guilded and a whole load of other stuff click here where you can get all this from just $2 per month subscription or an annual one-time payment with a month free!

Operation Mockingbird
01-09-2022
Operation Mockingbird
On this episode we discuss the silent machine behind the worlds media; the clandestine manipulation of your reality and the obfuscation of the real world around us through the content we consume; the news we trust and the moulded attitudes of our friends and loved ones. An operation so grand in its complexity and execution that it is as easily identifiable as it is deniable; Operation Mockingbird Post war propagandists and government manipulators took the forty years after World War Two and used it to lock down, up and coming student journalists and people of burgeoning influence in the media to disseminate and proliferate their political, ideological and materialistic agendas. The advent of the ubiquitous online media landscape in the past few decades and the explosion of online content creators; some with bigger followings than main stream media at this stage; were all targeted and swept up in this media manipulation machine. We discuss this and lots more including the Hollywood agenda; social media fact checkers; The Church Committee and we try to reason why a government would try to do this to their own people and how the rest of the world took it on like it was cool!

Chris Watts

Chris Watts
On this episode we discuss this horrible human being, Chris Watts, and his cowardly and brutal murder of his wife and two young kids with super-guest: comedy powerhouse and the undisputed heavy weight champion of the comedic arts Colin Geddis. The discussions and opinions on this episode will definitely be controversial as we try to understand the motivations behind such a crime; we also look deeper into the famous documentary American Murder: The Family Next Door and discuss all the info that was conveniently left out of it. This guy is a POS, no doubt; but the circumstances around this crime shocked so many because it was so surprising to all who knew the Watts Family. Underlying issues plagued this couple including money, toxic family ties and infidelity all played a part in this very very sad case. Joining me for these excellent and thought provoking discussions is hilarious Northman Colin Geddis; who you may have heard about from his recent support slots with Kevin Hart here in Ireland! He also has a massive following here for not only his own comedy and the magnificent comedy club in Belfast "Lavery's", but for his podcast 'General Banter' which is available on Patreon too! I do give a fair amount of props in the show so Ill refrain from licking his arse any further on the episode description :) So enjoy this show; and as we say on the 'dodgy' bits; I want to do a LiveStream very soon (next week) on these topics and lets get out and have a chat! Its been too long!

Barry Seal and The CIA Enterprise
13-06-2022
Barry Seal and The CIA Enterprise
On this episode we talk about one of the most dramatically interconnected men in conspiracy lore; a man who had more fingers in more pies than Mr Kipling and who was responsible for more rock than Dwayne Johnson. The king of cocaine and the reason anyone had something to toot throughout the 70s and 80s in America; this episode we are talking about Barry Seal. You may have heard of Barry from the 2017 Tom Cruise movie 'American Made'; but he is much more than some haphazard drug mule that was coopted by the CIA for nefarious black ops; he was a tour de force as an aviator and, so it transpired, as an international arms and drugs dealer. He dealt with the top tier of both sides from Pablo Escobar to George HW Bush and operated at a level where Presidents and State Governors knew him by name (and even got him off a few crimes now and then) His ultimately death is still a mystery; like, we know who shot him but the real question is WHY? Barry was so deep into so many dark corners of what we now call the Deep State operations and was a cash cow with the cocaine and arms dealing that he probably has a dossier as tall as the twin towers on all the movers and shakers behind the scenes. In this episode we talk about all this and more with comedians Gerry McBride and Damian Clark. You know Gerry from the episode on Chris Benoit and Damian joined my for the Port Arthur Massacre episode. Laughs and facts all through this one and there are loads more to come!

Dean Corll - The Candyman
On this episode we talk about the man who made parents everywhere afraid that a man in a van will come and take away your children; Texas Serial killer, child murderer and all round very bad man, Dean Corll. Killer of up to (and probably more than) 28 young men Dean Corll was the scourge of Heuston Heights in Texas and was so cruel in his murders that the moniker of Candy Man was given to him. Using what was known as 'The Murder Board' Dean tortured, molested and killed these lads between the ages of 13 and 20 in the late 60s and early 70s. With two willing accomplices, both very young men themselves, Elmer Wayne Henley and David Brooks; Dean would kill and then almost openly bury their bodies in holes he was seen digging for almost his entire adolescence. No really, he loved digging holes! Joining me for this very dark journey is comedian Andrew Gilmore.

Nora Koppel - The Hinterkaifek Murders
31-03-2022
Nora Koppel - The Hinterkaifek Murders
On this episode I interview Nora Koppel, daughter of Hinterkaifek expert Adolf Koppel, all about the facts of the case as proven by the investigations of her father. Dolf wrote the book Lerchenstimme (The Lark's Song) and book in German about The Hinterkaifek Murders and he claims to have proof of what happened to the Gruber Family on those fateful days 100 years ago at Hinterkaifek. Dolf recreated weapons, made moulds of wounds and combed through the 100 year old evidence to bring this case back to life and try to get it solved. We already went through the details of this case a while back; but this new set of information and the 100 year anniversary makes it a lovely revisit with Nora. We have the craic and I feel like a silly goose at times with my crazy guess work from the last episode; but with two books (one narrative and one evidence based) and a stage play coming up in June; this case is definitely getting a reinvigoration of interest. Be the first to know 'auf Englisch' what's really going on at Hinterkaifek. _____________________ This podcast is supported by the generous donations of the wonderful folks over at Patreon.

The Mystery of The Pyramids
18-03-2022
The Mystery of The Pyramids
On this episode we casually hold our hand over our brow as we inquisitively stare into the glare of the midday sun; searching for an ancient truth in a barren land and uncovering possibly the ultimate mysteries of our creation, our civilisation and the nature of our planet in this episode all about The Mystery of the Pyramids. From the classic pyramid on the Giza plateau in Egypt to the buried pyramids under the lush undulating hills of Bosnia, the wide sprawling once thriving civilisations in deepest South American jungles or the diligently preserved and revered monasteries and holy structures in Asia; the pyramid has endured as a symbol of a time that came before and a way of life for humanity that has been forgotten. These fantastic structures have withstood the test of time; of war, greed, and wanton destruction; only to leave behind a mystery that is almost unfathomable. The clues found in these wonders of the world, are the steps closer we desperately want to take in fully understand where we can from and what our purpose is. Clues like the sacred geometry found in the great pyramid of Khufu; or the ancient carvings on walls long left untouched by human hands. These mega structures are found all over the globe and they hold great significance to our current age by communicating through the universal language of mathematics and showing us that a once presumed primitive people, were actually much more advanced than ever thought possible. With measurements that depict the astrological distances of the sun, moon and stars and even some other very complicated scientific concepts; these megalithic measurement markers are a definite proof of the existence of ancient civilisations much more advanced that we thought.  More mysterious still are the newly minted concepts of an even more ancient civilisation than the Egyptians, who created the pyramids and the thriving civilisations that built them. The Giza pyramids and The Sphinx showing signs of a much older creation date; mean that there is a hidden history of the human species and the power that these ancient people created is still present in our modern world. _____________________ This podcast is supported by the generous donations of the wonderful folks over at Patreon.

Project Blue Beam
20-01-2022
Project Blue Beam
On this episode we cast our eyes skyward and prepare for the end times as we discuss the seemingly inevitable extra terrestrial invasion scenario that was famously predicted by a Canadian journalist and now fabled conspiracy theories Serge Monast known as Project Blue Beam Blue Beam began its round in the public discourse after a 1994 article was written by the infamous Serge Monast and hit hard on the now 'alien abduction obsessed' public in the early 90s. The X-Files and other massively popular ET based shows made Monast's predictions of a fake alien invasion and global control mechanisms much more palatable to the general public Blue Beam itself, even until very recently, was also conspiracy pie in the sky; but now a plan to show a holographic projection of everyones personal deity in the sky with an individualised message for every human on earth using futuristic technology and, as Monast put it, a giant soviet computer with a log of all our thoughts on it; doest seem so far fetched anymore. Other global catastrophes come with Blue Beam invasions like earthquakes, the finding of ancient artefacts; maybe under melting ice blocks, economic collapse, discovery of children kept for sexual slavery and a tumultuous political environment peaking with earth wide civil unrest would all be the heralding circumstances of this alien visitation. A New Age Religion will be made and will be the backbone of this New World Order under the alien overlords instructions; some may say we are already pre-programmed for this type of event through media and the recent events of the last few years. Devout adherence to the policies and ethical code of certain political parties transcend the solely and traditionally religious dogma and mean a more socially compliant and mentally malleable populous using the old tools of religious ideology and control. With UFO knowledge and disclosure at a high, at least in this civilisation, and even the CIA publicly declaring the existence of UFOs; the appearance of another species to 'save us from ourselves' is also not that far fetched. Werner Von Braun the famous Nazi rocket man turned NASA head boy warned of a secret plot by the nefarious powers that be and called it his last card. On his death bed he warned of a plan to turn man against man with the ultimate goal of total control. Could this be it? ________________________ If you want to follow TCG on social platforms including the TCG Discord; watch video versions of the livestream podcast and documentaries; or even join in on live chats about current events; buy TCG merch; get notifications of tickets you can buy to upcoming live stage shows or any other way to connect with me; all the available links, info and instructions you can find by clicking this link you want to throw a few bucks up the internet to support the show on Patreon you can get exclusive Patreon-Only content; all seasons of ad-free episodes; exclusive access to live chats and private social media like Instagram and Discord and a whole load of other stuff click here where you can get all this from just $2 per month subscription or an annual one-time payment with a month free!

The Murder of Mark Kilroy
13-12-2021
The Murder of Mark Kilroy
On this episode we talk about one of the darkest and torture laden murders that has ever graced the mics at TCG Towers; this episode is the gory tale of a satanic drug dealing cults inhuman efforts to kidnap, torture, and then gruesomely murder American tourist Mark Kilroy. Dark, this one gets dark! Mark Kilroy was a catholic student who went to Texas State and one Spring Break went to Brownsville with a small stop over the border in Matamoros. This was the last trip for Mark as he was snatched up by the gang of Adolfo Costanzo; a cult leader and dark religious practitioner. They performed sick and twisted rituals on Mark until his death and then led the authorities on chase which ended in a siege. Crazy stuff in this one; and joining me on the morose but still somehow hilarious journey is comedian Stephen Bradley. Stephen is one of the founders of MOB Theatre Dublin and is a fantastic improviser, writer, comedian and lovely man. We do go off on a lot of pop culture tangents in this one; but you can choose to see it as a bit of levity to dilute the awfulness of the details of this story. If you want to find Stephen and ply his wares you can find him on Instagram here: or his theatre company here: and you can find out all about the classes and shows for MOB Theatre on their website Stephen also joined me for the Mystery of the Pyramids episode and I hope to see him as a recurring guest in future shows, so go show him some love! ________________________ If you want to follow TCG on social platforms including the TCG Discord; watch video versions of the livestream podcast and documentaries; or even join in on live chats about current events; buy TCG merch; get notifications of tickets you can buy to upcoming live stage shows or any other way to connect with me; all the available links, info and instructions you can find by clicking this link you want to throw a few bucks up the internet to support the show on Patreon you can get exclusive Patreon-Only content; all seasons of ad-free episodes; exclusive access to live chats and private social media like Instagram and Discord and a whole load of other stuff click here where you can get all this from just $2 per month subscription or an annual one-time payment with a month free!

Robert Berchtold
20-11-2021
Robert Berchtold
On this episode comedian Ailish McCarthy joins me to discuss the case made famous by the documentary 'Abducted in Plain Sight' and one of the most egregious cases of manipulation that you can find; the case of Robert Berchtold and Jan Broberg. Infiltrating and then sexually intoxicating a whole family of Mormons called The Brobergs, Berchtold was able to wrestle away the control of their daughter Jan and end up co-habiting with the family as he continued his deep psychological control campaign. Abducting Jan on multiple occasions and ultimately holding her hostage in Mexico until the FBI were involved should have been the end of him and his depraved mission; but the hooks were too deep however as The Brobergs became even more entwined in Berchtolds web of deceit, psychological authority and sexual control. Its such a crazy story that to give more details here would ruin it a bit, so just dive in and enjoy!

Vampires

Vampires
DEEP DIVE On this episode we discuss one of the most enduring and visceral myths in humanities history; dating from ancient civilisations; even mentioned in the bible and other ancient religious texts and recognised all the way up to many modern media masterpieces; the concept of the bloodsucking prince of the night still holds a strong sentiment in all our hearts so this time we are talking about Vampires. From tales of forlorn lovers and rich aristocrats draining yearning wenches of their blood, to monsters exsanguinating all and sundry in remote villages and sleepy town in Eastern Europe the lore of the vampire mythos endures for centuries. It is most well known today by the foppish and romantically charged stories of teenage vampire heartthrobs but the Vampire is a deep rooted image of the dissuasion of common folk to give in to their animalistic urges and as a stark health warning designed to be preserved in the minds of men, protecting from disease and poison of the blood and bloodlines. While Vampires seem wholly unbelievable in their dark magic roots, there are many tales of very real men who would behave as these monsters reputedly do. Serial Killers, Murderers, Madmen and Tyrant Kings, all carry the title of Vampire for their dark deeds and fascination with blood. From biblical tales like Lilith to real historical figures like Vlad the Impaler the vampire myth is deeply interwoven into our collective subconscious and often mixed in with a very tangible part of human nature not all of us are willing to admit we identify so closely with. ________________________ Joining me on this episode are Eamonn O'Neill and Edwin Sammon.
