PSICAN - Paranormal Studies and Inquiry Canada

Book & Resource Reviews

Sue St Clair with copy of The Conspiracy Show The Conspiracy Show with host Richard Syrett, is a Canadian documentary-style television program that is a companion to the host's popular AM740/ZoomerRadio broadcast. Topics that are explored, and investigated include the paranormal, UFOs, and conspiracy theories from around the globe. The show will debut on Vision TV February 18th at 11pm  ET/ 8pm PT

I was fortunate to receive an advance screening of the first two episodes of The Conspiracy Show, and what follows is a review and my thoughts on these initial episodes.

Episode One concerns itself with UFO Disclosure, and looks into the current movement that is attempting to facilitate that disclosure by bringing awareness to the UFO issue, and thereby putting pressure on world governments (in particular the USA ) to open up to the general public about its information on UFOs and UFO occupants, and to end cover-ups. I  found the show to be quite balanced, and informative. The ending of the show about UFO conspiracy was truly refreshing in the fact that Syrett gave his honest view and opinion on the subject.

Too many other presenters or hosts on other shows, be they on the radio, internet, or in this case, on television, either feel they need to show a sense of faux journalistic detachment and keep their own opinions or thoughts obfuscated (or masked under clever jokes or attempts at wit) or they appear to outright lie about their own beliefs in order to appease their audience, and in so doing, come off about as honest and legitimate as the worst of any carnival barkers one might encounter at a circus side-show.

This said, Syrett's "summing up" (presentation at the end of his own thoughts on the subject) seemed genuine, and presented authentically without any obvious taint to the data presented throughout the show. Both sides were presented, and Syrett favoured neither during the show, but at the end, we find out his own feelings... and that was a nice experience.

Episode Two entitled 9/11 Controlled Demolition was by the very nature of the topic presented potentially much more emotionally charged, and was handled as equally well as Episode One in my opinion. Founding members of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and Firefighters for 9/11 Truth were given equal time with an explosives expert who argued against their claims that the World Trade Center towers were brought down by controlled explosions. Again both sides were presented thoughtfully, and the viewer is given the opportunity to evaluate the evidence presented, and make up their own mind on what really happened that fateful day.

I have a well known reputation for being critics of this type of programming. My critical eye is borne out of our sincere desire to see these topics elevated, and treated respectfully. If these first two programs are any indication, then The Conspiracy Show has achieved just that.

The production presented the data in an easy-to-watch way, without silly dramatics or feeling the need to "sex-up" the subject matter to appeal to what many in the media industry mistakenly thinks the target audience prefers to watch.

I would like to congratulate Richard Syrett, and the production team on this intelligent well done program. And we hope to see much more of The Conspiracy Show in the future.
