I feel like the fact that he didn't buy a return ticket and didn't bring his charger might be an indication that he was planning to commit suicide, and didn't want to do it in his hometown.

Do you guys think that the Mothman phenomenon has anything to do with the mass amount of chemicals in West Virginia? I have always thought that perhaps the people were poisoned by the environment and it led to these sightings. The bandwagon idea is definitely plausible as well. It's weird, but what else is Point Pleasant good for? You guys are awesome! Thanks for helping me get through my post college gap job. ☺

This is the first episode I was drawn to. I've listened to so so many podcasts about conspiracies. Little disclaimer: I'm not a neckbeard, I don't browse imageboards. I have a job, I pay my taxes,blah blah blah. This whole episode was a retelling of every article written about pizzagate. It presented none of the most damning pieces of evidence. You brushed over so much and instead chose to frame it as entirely politically motivated. I'm not calling you shills, and I know I'll be attacked for this, but this episode was so unapologetically biased, even down to the intonations in their voices - so mocking and 'holier than thou'. Please research more, and then give us a real show.

lol you really pissed off the incels of 4chan with this one, guys. Great coverage though. Nice to see a rational break down detail by detail. Strangely telling that the neckbeards see pedophiles in every conspiracy. Its almost as it theyre projecting or something....

I agree, it is clear who’s side they are on. It’s OK to not agree with the conspiracy, but be fair and balanced your coverage as a conspiracy. I challenge anyone to go on to VOAT and read the “Pizzagate - full executive summary”, view all the creepy images from Alefantis’ Instagram, view all of the correlations of the verbiage used in the emails compared to the FBI’s list of known pedophile codes and symbols, how they could tie to the pizza place, and then it’s far more suspicious than these two clowns lead on to believe. Glad I did not subscribe to this podcast. Awful. Controlled opposition. Not to mention “the shooter” was a deliberate stunt so they can say the police showed up and there was nothing to see there. It gives “credibility” and shows there’s an “investigation” going on... how can people be so gullible???

Wesley Paul Lol good one! A very clever impersonation of a gullible, impotent, neckbeard. I applaud your performance, sir.

I love you guys, have been listening since the beginning. The 2 of you are truly unbiased and tell the story first, and then have opinions, which Insay are spot on. That being said this was by far your weakest episode ever. So so much was left out, and so many extremely important things. It wasnt bad at all, just not up to your high standard.

Tucker Connell I think Larry is refering to the fact Matt wasnt killed because he was gay. He was a drug addict and a dealer, he was tortured and murdered for drugs and money not because he was gay. The story is twisted into a hate crime for political reasons.

omg, never heard this case before. thanks for shedding light on this case and giving Matthew the respect and dignity he deserves and deserved then. Its sad it took Matt dying to enact a hate crime law but one good positive is that he didn't die in vain and he has saved so many who came after him. prejudice and discrimination based on race, class, sex, disability, sexual orientation etc is the most ignorant, unnecessary and most horrific thing a person can take part in. to believe someone is inferior based on those factors is kind of ironic seeing as though that thought pattern is what actually makes the person who thinks that way inferior in every way.
