Bad research, very disappointed

After looking forward to this podcast for some time, unfortunately I have been very let down. The production is good with the video and music. Perhaps the higher production is how they get away with nominal research. They keep basing their conspiracy theories on what "some people believe." Well... people believe a lot of things, but that doesn't make any of it true. The hollow earth theory and the others can not be summed up in under 10 minutes by just telling us what "some people believe." If you were to turn off the video and creepy music and just read what they are saying, it would be ridiculous. I like your concept a lot, but please look at the counter arguments and actual research behind each theory. With the hollow earth theory, you should at least look at the seismometer evidence against the theory to be fair. That, to me, debunks that theory completely. Improve the research (or change the show to a conspiracy investigation instead of a conspiracy endorsement) and I will be a big fan.

How made up stuff might work, maybe.

Zero research, midless parroting of conspiracy ideas without bothering to include reality in the conversation. Howstuffworks has been going downhill for quite a while, but this is lower than I expected from them.


first of all, i love howstuffworks and they're the reason i started listening to podcasts. secondly, i heard about this show from josh and chuck on "stuff you should know" and i'm not gonna lie, i checked itunes EVERY DAY for this podcast for about a month because i thought it would be really cool. but here's the thing: i'm not a conspiracy theorist. i don't think the earth is hollow or that the CFR is really a bunch of alien-human hybrids set out to take over the world. i DO, however, find it incredibly interesting to see what some people come up with and to see things from another perspective. this podcast is well orchestrated and interesting to listen to, but if you're like me and find some of the more extremist theories too far out to believe, remember to take it tongue in cheek. and to those of you who say that this podcast is poorly researched: i'd venture a guess that very few, if any, of you could do better. if you were paying attention to the podcast's narration, you'd hear the person say repeatedly that "there is no evidence to support this claim". this is a fun podcast whether or not you think the government is out to get you...but if you're the latter, just remember to take it with a grain of salt. :)
