This week Kyle, Matthew and Producer Natalie sit down with comedian Riley Jess to talk about Ancient Aliens - both the show and the ancient astronaut theory. Riley discusses getting exposed to weird alien lectures while doing closed captioning, which led to her current obsession (although she herself is not a believer). The gang discusses the inherent racism in ancient alien theories, the political landscape behind World War I, and the Anunnaki from Nibiru. They also debunk the Baghdad "battery," the Egyptian "light bulb," the golden Tolima "fighter jets," and the Nazca "landing strips." Ultimately, aren't we all just space dust?
