What if super-intelligent lizards are wearing human skin suits, influencing international affairs and recording podcasts?

So join comedian and skeptic Katelyn Hempstead as her brilliant friends try to convince her of these and many other conspiracy theories.

The Barefoot Beekeeper is available i ...
