This episode of EJC features a pair of two separate and interesting filmmakers: Jason Klamm and Joel Gilbert. First, the guys talk about popular conspiracy nut (and supposed Trump advisor) Alex Jones. Is he nothing more than a money grubbing fear monger who likes to yell? This leads to the Alex Jones soundboard making prank calls. Then, podcaster and filmmaker Jason Klamm joins EJC live via Skype. He hosts the Comedy on Vinyl and Dan and Jay's Comedy Hour podcasts, and he also runs the StolenDress podcast network. His first documentary feature film, Lords of Soaptown, chronicles the story of Freestyle Walking (or Soaping). EJC ask about the making of the film, how the "sport" started, where it's going and more. Up next, Samantha Scarlett brings on filmmakerJoel Gilbert. His mockumentary, Paul-Is-Dead, tells a shocking story: Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash in November of 1966 and replaced with a double! British intelligence, MI5, had forced the Beatles to cover up McCartneys death to prevent mass suicides of Beatle fans. However, the remaining Beatles tried to signal fans with clues on album covers and in songs. This is based on a popular conspiracy theory–yes some people think Paul McCartney is really dead. Plus, the horrors of an incipient Trump presidency roll on and on, inside Chris's head, David from Australia: justice, down under and Chris with the week's headlines.
A full throttled EJC that touches every emotion, featuring Wild Domestic and acclaimed Nuclear Physicist-Lecturer, and UFO researcher, Stanton T. Friedman. But first, the show starts with Eddie pointing out that Chris has been a constant contradiction on the show over the past few months. This is corroborated by a montage of Chris from last week shooting down numerous thoughts and conversations, as well as a sting of listener tribute song parodies. Then, Matt Carlson of Wild Domestic calls in to talk about his new single, "Author", and his upcoming EP, SINGULAR; slated to be released in early 2017. Wild Domestic’s writing, production and performance is a reflection of Carlson’s personal views and voice. His soulful, honest, and sometimes quirky lyrics are underscored by his strong alternative rock background, which is influenced by bands like My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Talking Heads and Arcade Fire. Listen in as EJC ask about Carlson's ability to pick up and learn instruments, touring challenges and more. Next up, EJC Correspondent Samantha Scarlett welcomes Stanton T. Friedman, acclaimed Nuclear Physicist-Lecturer. He has provided written testimony to congressional hearings, appeared twice at the UN, and been a pioneer in many aspects of ufology including Roswell, Majestic 12, crashed saucers, flying saucer technology, and challenges to the S.E.T.I. (Silly Effort To Investigate) cultists. Listen in as EJC&S ask about alien abductions, visitation, flying saucers and more. Plus, Jason and Chris attack Eddie, David from Australia has horrifying news, Eddie reveals a secret...FROM THE FUTURE, Chris's News, sex robots and more.
On this EJC episode, the guys welcome EJC Correspondent Samantha Scarlette and her guest Isaac Weishaupt of the popular IlluminatiWatcher.com. The show kicks off with a conversation on whether plants have feelings or not. Chris shuts it down pretty quickly because he's a buzz kill and thinks he knows everything. He's pretty salty this episode (so watch out). This leads into a chat with Siri, political correctness (and an SNL Weekend Update joke that's causing a stir), gender identity options on Tinder and more. Then, Samantha Scarlette brings onIsaac Weishaupt of the popular IlluminatiWatcher.com blog and website. He's a website publisher, author, and independent researcher, and has been on the leading edge of conspiracy theories surrounding the elusive "Illuminati" and its infiltration of the entertainment industry. EJC and Samantha discuss what exactly the Illuminati is, what their supposed goals are and more. Plus, David from Australia, Chris turns down a challenge, an in-depth Chris' News feature on the election recount.
A fun EJC podcast this week, featuring the awesomely talented Moth Wings, JFK assassination conspiracy theory expert, and acclaimed author, Peter Janney and "Dr. Stephen Hawking". The show kicks off with the guys talking about a recent story on Professor Stephen Hawking thinks humans only have 1,000 years left on Earth. Of course, this kind of information can't be thrown around lightly, so EJC get "Dr. Hawking" himself on the phone to discuss his outrageous claims. Then, Spencer from the band Moth Wings calls into the show! The act is an unnecessarily over the top rock n roll band from Houston, TX. The insane approach to the band is reflected not only in the music but in the personalities of the members behind it. It's more about creating an energy and an environment that enables an artistic and emotional catharsis than it is about being in a band. EJC and Spencer talk about music videos, his live performance and more. Next up, author Peter Janney. He grew up in Washington, D.C. during the Cold War era of the 1950s and 1960s. His father Wistar Janney was a senior career CIA official. Mary's Mosaic is his first book about the murder of JFK's alleged lover, Mary Meyer. Who really murdered Meyer in the fall of 1964? Why was there a mad rush by CIA counterintelligence chief James Angleton to locate and confiscate her diary? And was it mere coincidence that Mary Meyer was killed less than three weeks after the release of the Warren Commission Report? Plus, Jason edifies Eddie on the Mir space station, David from Australia joins the conversation, Chris and Eddie put their terrible Trump impressions on display and more.
It's episode #241 of Eddie Jason & Chris, and this week the guys welcome pop-grunge band Ramonda Hammer, Mandela Effect expert Jacob Israel and "Donald Trump". The show kicks off with Eddie and Jason giving Chris a hard time because he was so confident that Hillary Clinton would win the election. This leads into a heated discussion about what a Donald Trump presidency really means, Chris' conspiracy regarding Russia hacking the election results and later a call from "Trump" himself. Then, the guys welcome the very talented Devin of catchy grunge rockers, Ramonda Hammer. After a successful Kickstarter campaign in October 2015, Ramonda Hammer recorded their first professional album at the legendary Sunset Sound with Grammy-nominated sound engineer Morgan Stratton.

Next on the show, Jacob Israel, a national book award winning author, as well as a Lonestar Emmy, Telly, and N.R.B. award winning television writer and producer. He's a an expert on a phenomena called The Mandela effect, in which the masses have an incorrect recognition of an event or pop-culture reference. Could this be evidence of time travel? Evidence of crossing over into parallel universes? EJC Correspondent Samantha Scarlett brings her expertise and tries to dissect this weird topic. Plus, Super-fan David from Australia offers a foreign perspective on Trump's election, Chris explains the Electoral College, the week's latest headlines and more.
This week, EJC welcome paranormal researcher Jeff Belanger, as part of EJC correspondent Samantha Scarlette's ongoing series, as well as pop-punk outfit Rivers Monroe. First up, the guys talk about the presidential election and Chris is 100% certain Hillary Clinton is going to win. This is funny (or not) because the episode was broadcast before Trump's victory. Wait until the guys get ahold of Chris next week. He also clams to be a presidential expert, so Eddie and Jason quiz Chris on US President history.
