S1E7: Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out to be True

Conspiracy Theory.  The phrase brings to mind nut jobs with wacky ideas about world events.  Government plots and false flags, assassinations, medical studies involving unaware and unwilling patients, secret criminal organizations, and lies used to start wars all qualify.  The trouble is that there are documented, provable examples of each. 

Join me as I examine conspiracy theories that turned out to be true.
