5. Who Shot JFK? With David Schneider
Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone in killing JFK? The most widely believed conspiracy theory in America, and the one you've all been waiting for!
Actor, writer, and director David Schneider joins James and Jol to dissect the countless conspiracies surrounding the assassination of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. You may know David from such TV classics as The Day Today and Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge. Plus, Mission: Impossible, 28 Days Later and The Death of Stalin.
Believers of this conspiracy claim the involvement of the CIA, the Mafia, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro, the KGB, or some combination of these. In fact, doubters of the lone gunman theory have accused 42 groups, 82 assassins and 214 people of being involved in the assassination.
Why is this theory so widely believed, and acceptably so? If you believe this one, are you in danger or believing something more radical? And more importantly, why is the word ‘grassy knoll’ so funny?!
