Today, Dan and Jordan get into the Week That Was on the Alex Jones Show. Most of it is terrible (code for Gavin McGinness), a little bit of it is hilarious (code for Alex's persecution complex). It's too much to listen to, but enjoy.
Today, Dan tells Jordan all about what happened on the March 12 episode of The Alex Jones Show. Alex has just been "on vacation" for a week, so Alex comes back to the studio feeling a need to remind the people why he's the best. This leads to yelling about Satan, the return of his Bernie Sanders impression, and a very long interview with a British career criminal.
Today, Dan begins to tell Jordan about his investigation into Alex Jones and the beginning of the Tea Party movement. Unfortunately, he way overshot the start date, so this episode is mostly about how Alex is afraid of science and takes it personally when anyone suggests white people may be bad.
Today, Dan tells Jordan all about October 4, 2016, when Alex Jones got super duper excited about how Julian Assange was doing a press conference about how evil Hillary Clinton was. In reality, Assange was only doing a press conference about how Wikileaks had existed for 10 years, so the Gents just get to enjoy 2 hours of Alex slowly getting more mad.
Today, Dan tells Jordan about a really good example of how Alex Jones has literally no standards about who he allows on his show as a guest. This is not news, but today's example is the very hateful pastor Steve Anderson, who Alex Jones has on to discuss whether or not the rapture comes before or after the tribulation. As is so often the case, there are far more important issues to discuss.
Today, Dan tells Jordan all about what happened during Alex Jones' 8 PM shift during his recent "Help Me I'm Being Sued" Marathon. It's a classic esoteric performance by a drunk Alex, covering such diverse topics as "how Alex is a victim because of the lawsuits against him" and "how Alex is a victim because the listeners of his show don't give him enough money." Definitely high end political talk.
Today, Dan and Jordan have a little episode for you where they discuss Alex Jones' interview with Jalen Martin, a student from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Alex's actions in the aftermath of this tragedy, as well as after pretty much every tragedy, are pretty formulaic and uninteresting, but this interview manages somehow to transcend in the arena of distastefulness.
Today, Dan and Jordan try to come back to the present after wrapping up their coverage of Alex Jones' "documentary" Endgame, but the water is just way too full of garbage to swim in. They dip a toe, then decide to time travel back to 2006, when for whatever reason, David Lynch agreed to call in and talk with Alex, and the big problem this illustrates about Alex's nonsense worldview.
Today, Dan and Jordan complete their coverage of Alex Jones' terrible "documentary" Endgame. It's been a long and difficult road, but thankfully, the home stretch includes some demonstrable lies about carbon taxes and an accidental exploration of San Francisco cyberpunk culture.
Today, Dan and Jordan soldier forward through the exceedingly stupid Alex Jones "documentary" Endgame. In this installment, the gents wrap up some Nazi talk, get pretty sick of Alex's shit, then Dan breaks down the 1934 film Tomorrow's Children.
Today, Dan and Jordan enter the part of their Endgame coverage where both of them start to lose patience with Alex Jones' silly games, almost reaching their breaking point before a pizza arrives toward the end of this episode and gave them their second wind.
Today, Dan and Jordan's exploration of Alex Jones' increasingly amateurish and embarrassing "documentary" Endgame continues. On this episode, the gents follow Alex to Canada where he yells at strangers with a megaphone, and they learn about how important it is, when you're making outrageous accusations, to have not-insane people be your source.
Today, Dan and Jordan embark on an adventure that is probably a very dumb idea: covering the entirety of Alex Jones' very stupid "documentary" Endgame. Dan found approximately 130 specific instances of Alex either lying or "playing with the truth," so this could take a while. In this first episode, the gents learn that Alex doesn't know what "quote" means, but he does love Nazi propaganda films.
Today, Dan tells Jordan about the very weird time when Alex Jones somehow got David de Rothschild to call into his show. At the time, David was promoting the 7/7/07 Live Earth concerts and the book about climate change that he had written, but instead of really talking about any of that, Alex decides to be a huge dick and spout antisemitic conspiracy theories about his guest's family. It is a mess.
Today, Dan and Jordan go on a time-traveling adventure as directed by Policy Wonk Jessie, who wanted to know what Alex Jones was up to on their birthday. As luck would have it, that date coincided with the day that Benjamin Netanyahu came to America and spoke to Congress. This sends Alex into a tailspin of uncomfortable Israel-related weirdness.
Today, Dan walks Jordan through the painful episode of The Alex Jones Show from Feb. 8, 2018. The pain mostly comes from Alex being in a very weird headspace, and lashing out aggressively at the trans community. There is pain, but there's also pleasure, in the form of Alex not knowing anything about Bitcoin and clearly having a conman as his guest to talk about it.
Today, Dan tells Jordan all about a very drunk special report Alex Jones put out on the evening of Feb. 2nd, where he screams about a segment on MSNBC that was critical of Trump. Alex also takes the opportunity to curse like a sailor and do some incredibly embarrassing impression work.
Today, Dan and Jordan need to take a break from talking about Alex Jones, so they descend into the deep, murky waters of Project Camelot. In this installment, they break down an interview between Kerry Cassidy and a remote viewer named Courtney Brown about a war in heaven. Also, the gents learn about Courtney's incredibly troubling past.
Dan and Jordan are still stuck back in the past, discussing episodes of The Alex Jones Show from 2008, and Dan has reached a strange point of conflict. Despite him being wrong all the time, was Alex Jones so bad back in 2008? Would Alex Jones be way happier if he had never started selling weird pills and making tons of money? These questions and more are discussed on this episode.
Today, Dan explains to Jordan why the present is no longer worth exploring as it relates to Alex Jones. Thus, the gents dive deep back into the past to see what Alex was doing about a decade ago. Spoiler alert: he was lying and enjoying really good country jams.
Today, Dan and Jordan go live at the Playground Theater to discuss the March 1-2, 2012 episodes of The Alex Jones Show. The gents break down how Alex responded to the news that Andrew Breitbart had died. We all cope with loss in our own way, and Alex apparently copes by lying a whole lot and spreading conspiracy theories about the deceased.
Today, Dan tells Jordan all about an episode of The Alex Jones Show where Alex Jones keeps retelling a story about running into an "authoritarian" in a hot tub while on vacation. The story cannot be true, but it's fun to watch Alex give it more and more layers of lies as time goes on. Also, Alex lies a bunch about the UN to scare his listeners and pulls off one of the harshest ad pivots in history.
Today, Dan tells Jordan all about a very groundbreaking episode of The Alex Jones Show, where we get a sense of where Alex's martyr complex comes from, and whether Alex prefers "facts" or "lore."
This episode was broadcast the day after LaVoy Finnecum was killed at the Oregon Wildlife Preserve Standoff. That event has put Alex Jones into the kind of headspace where he accidentally says a number of things that he usually keeps inside, and luckily, Knowledge Fight is here to bring those things to light.
Dan had the best of intentions with trying to figure out what Alex Jones thought about the Slenderman so he could tell Jordan all about it. Unfortunately, it appears that Alex had no take on that, so Dan instead tells Jordan about the day where Alex goes real deep into board games and welcomes the most unlikely guest of all time onto the show.
We are not sure how it happened, but Dan scored an interview with Alex Jones and uses the time to ask some pointed questions and promote Knowledge Fight's upcoming live show: January 20th at 10:30 PM at the Playground Theater. Ticket info coming soon.
