    Good lord. Where to start. Lizard people. Chemtrails, giants, nazis, MMS, annunuki, ….she checks EVERY box. What a nutter.

    40 minutes I’ll never get back. Lol.

    Wow. This woman hits every single conspiracy theory and secret knowledge story out there with ZERO basis on which to make any of her claims. She doesn’t even seem to know her subject and gets flustered trying to explain her flimsy stories. How does someone with such credulity survive in this world?

    Well….I’m off to watch The Matrix again with the mindset that it is a documentary.

    After the first connection dropped, notice how she said “I don’t know how far along we got, ’cause I don’t know when I was being cut off…”

    Hah! “Being cut off.” I bet she thinks a dropped Skype connection was part of a big lizard-people conspiracy to silence her.

    The mantid races were probably in on it, too, lol.

    But seriously, how does someone become like this? Is it correlated with some kind of trauma or disorder or anything at all that can be diagnosed? Or is it just the natural variation in the population given our tendency to see patterns where they don’t exist? I’m fascinated and troubled. I mean, as always…

    Well she had every box on the Conspiracy Theory bingo card crossed off well before the end if that. From now on I shall describe anyone who shows great patience in the face of unmitigated pish as being Marsh like.

    This woman needs to meet Occam’s razor.

    I have never screamed at the car stereo as much as I did during this interview. She’s never met a conspiracy theory she didn’t like, and having a “whistleblower” is apparently all the proof she needs.
    She can’t even see her own contradictions – “I’m not a biologist” to “you need to see the bigger picture and do your own research.”

    Marsh, I am as ever in awe of your ability to stay calm and reasonable in the face of, as in this interview, even outright insults.

    She has met Occam’s razor. It got completely dulled on her attempts at reason…

    Oof. I know these folk are usually arrogant bit this woman takes the biscuit. She stops short of calling us all sheep!

    And once again Marsh I salute your restraint in these interviews. You must be chewing your fist constantly!!

    There is one question I would have asked this deluded dingbat. Where is your evidence? She trotted out the whole gamut of conspiracy theory with absolutely no evidence for any of it. I listened to the end in silent solidarity with you Marsh. It was the least I could do. You have the patience of a saint.

    Listened to this whilst jogging. Had to stop as I realised I was shouting insults out loud! One thing despite the bs tirade which I found amusing, was the assumption that March (being English) would personally know every English nutjob she name dropped. The apotheosis being David f*cking Ike!!!! And that being English somehow added credibility. Finally, I wanted her view out of morbid curiosity on flat earth theory – she must have some contradictory conspiracy conflict in there somewhere. effing loon!

    Well done Marsh, another masterclass in dignity.

    I think your final question was a subtle but brilliant undercutting of her view of reality. She has no mechanism from distinguishing fact from fiction. If she likes a story she’ll make room for it. If she doesn’t she won’t.

    It’s very hard to take seriously someone who bases their view of the world on a film by the guys who did Speed Racer and Ninja Assasin. At least some conspiracy theorists have the style to coalesce their ideas around the work of classy director like Kubrick.

    Do I also have to watch the Matrix sequels to fully understand? I’m not sure I could go though that ordeal again.

    Ouch. That one was just painful. Hats off to you Marsh!

    Just discovered Be Reasonable. Fantastic! Giving woo peddlers the opportunity to explain their beliefs in detail under polite questioning may be the best way to illustrate the difference between science from pseudoscience. No opportunity to turn the tables; they hang themselves with their own nonsense.

    To be fair, she made some really convincing points. She had me at David Icke.

    Just kidding. And in relation to one of the above commments. Yes, being ‘Marsh-like’ needs to get into circulation.

    One question missing from the interview… how come she wasn’t killed yet for unearthing all the facts she claimes to have knowledge of while so many others, 25 or more ar some point, were murdered already.

    I’m fascinated by the way people can…
    1… rattle off multiple ‘facts’ in a single sentence thereby reinforcing their own thinking along the way…
    2.. claim unknown sources…
    3… ‘name drop’ people, as if they are reputable… even if they might not be.
    4… say ‘I cured myself from cancer’ like it was no big deal… Hey! If you did that… It’s a BIG deal!
