E48: The Chappaquiddick Incident

January 21, 2019

On the night of Friday, July 18, 1969, Ted Kennedy was involved in a car accident that killed passenger Mary Jo Kopechne. What followed was a bizarre series of events, with Kennedy not reporting the accident to police for nearly ten hours, attempting to cover-up details of what transpired on that evening, and acting in a manner that would end his chances of ever rising to the political heights of his brothers John and Robert. This week, Matt and Kayla take on the Chappaquiddick Incident, going through the official timeline of events, discussing all those involved, and dissecting the theories as to what actually happened that night.

E42: JFK Assassination (Part Four)

December 10, 2018

President John Fitzgerald Kennedy ushered in an era of hope in the United States, working to mend relations with the Soviet Union, refusing to invade Laos and Cuba, and promising to further social benefits for all Americans. Before Kennedy could begin to make good on his promises, he was killed while visiting Dallas, Texas, allegedly by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald. Since 1963, the world has scrutinized the assassination of JFK and the subsequent killing of Oswald, implying that the truth is far darker than what the official story alleges.

In the fourth and final part of our JFK Assassination saga, we conclude by taking a look at the many alleged conspirators in the murder of President Kennedy. Matt and Kayla talk about the CIA, the Secret Service, Lyndon B. Johnson, the American mafia, anti-Castro Cuban exiles, and much more.

On November 9, 1997, the face of the professional wrestling industry changed forever when Vince McMahon, owner of the WWF, pulled a fast one on his biggest star of the era, Bret "Hitman" Hart. The events are now known as the Montreal Screwjob, and have been widely debated by professional wrestling fans and conspiracy theorists alike. Did Vince McMahon truly screw Bret Hart, or was Hart a victim of his own ego? Find out as Matt, Kayla, and our special guest Adam Contant from the Wrasslun Show Network tackle the Montreal Screwjob.

November 5, 2018

The professional wrestling industry dates back to the 1800's, where travelling carnivals built on traditional strongman acts. Despite the modernization of the wrestling industry, many of its carnival roots can still be observed through the many hucksters, cheats, and opportunists working within it. We cover a small sample of pro wrestling's less savory stories, including the shady events surrounding the death of Bruiser Brody, writer Vince Russo's alleged role as a double agent, and the possibility that "Macho Man" Randy Savage had a secret affair with his bosses teenage daughter.

The Denver International Airport is one of the largest airports in the entire world, hosting more than 60 million travelers every single year. Despite having a relatively clean history, the DIA is host to a number of conspiracy theories which say that world elites are behind the construction and management of the airport, possibly to house the rich and powerful in the event of a nuclear annihilation, or to house mass quantities of civilians in times of civil unrest. Is the DIA the host of secret societies and bad actors, or is it just another normal airport? Find out on this week's Big, If True.

At the turn of the 20th century, a young boy named Robert Eugene Otto was gifted a peculiar doll by a family member. The boy and his doll became the best of friends, with the doll adopting the name "Robert", holding conversations with the boy, and according to servants of the Otto family, even walking around the home. Soon, Robert the Doll began terrorizing the Otto family and their employees, bringing with him a path of destruction and terror that made him one of the most famous haunted dolls in history. Is there any truth to the haunting of Robert the Doll, or can it all be chalked up to the imaginations of those who interacted with it? Find out on this week's episode of Big, If True.

In 1922, a family of five and their new maid were savagely murdered in their German farmhouse during the midst of a crippling recession that directly led to the fall of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Nazi Germany. The killer is shown to have stayed in the attic of the Gruber family home for some time before committing the murders, coming and going completely undetected, and even taking items belonging to the family. Were the Gruber's murdered by a spurned ex-lover, or did a husband return from the dead to exact his revenge on a wife who had long since moved on?

The hosts of Big, If True take an in-depth look at one of the most disturbing proposed false flag operations in the history of the United States - Operation Northwoods. The plan called for the staging of various attacks on American soil by the Castro-led Cuban government in order to give the US a legitimate reason to wage war with Cuba, and proposes sinking ships, attacking unchartered flights, sinking refugee boats, and holding mock funerals for non-existent victims. Matt and Kayla also talk about false flag events and their long history, and briefly touch on how to spot a potential false flag.
