Rumor Flies comically addresses the origins, evolution, and veracity of your favorite rumors, myths, and misconceptions. We are three friends in New Orleans who love to run our mouths, rip on each other, and open our responses with, "Actually..." This idea came from a simple question: Why and how do certain "facts," true or otherwise, become so publicly ingrained and accepted?
We work hard, research harder, and answer the questions that plague our souls everyday. Did coca-cola ever have cocaine in it? Does Disney have secret subliminal - often lewd - images in their animated films? Did that kid in elementary school actually have the super secret early Japanese release of Nintendo 64 because his dad worked for them AND I KNOW YOU WERE LYING, STEVE, BUT A TINY PART OF ME THOUGHT YOU WERE HOLDING OUT ON US.
So you get the idea. We find the sauce, we hunt for documentation, and occasionally, we will even add supplemental content that ranges from incredibly relevant to the "I think these guys really just wanted to cook for an hour and make up an excuse to relate it to the Kennedy Assassination."
Which leads to our final little note: We will, for the most part, stay away from "powder keg issues." We love controversy, we don't mind steering into dark territory (there has been a surprising amount of death in our episodes...), but we are not here to debate the moon landings. We try to stick to popular rumors that have some sort of verifiable paper trail, even if we don't come to a final conclusion.
