BoA:Audio ventures into the world of pop conspiracy with Pearl Jr., creator of the film Alive! Is Michael Jackson Really Dead?, which advances the theory that the King of Pop faked his own death. In this engaging conversation, Pearl will explain how she came to believe that MJ faked his death and will outline the many aspects of his demise which raise suspicions and suggest that there may be more to the story than the mainstream media has been telling you. We'll cover the controversies over Jackson's middle name, the 'final photo' of MJ in the ambulance before he died, and the potential roles of Conrad Murray, Joe Jackson, and MJ's kids in the death hoax. Along the way we'll examine the 'MJ was murdered' theory while also exploring why and how Michael Jackson would fake his own death.

It's an episode which provides tantalizing food for thought and watercooler conversation that will be sure to spook your co-workers as we delve into the Michael Jackson Death Hoax with Pearl Jr.

Full Preview: We kick things off with the bio / background on Pearl Jr. and find out how her coverage of the 2005 Michael Jackson trial set her down the path to following the King of Pop. For the curious listeners out there, we'll also get the background on the "junior" in Pearl Jr.'s name. Before we dive in to the MJ Death Hoax, we reflect on the media bias covering the trial and how it changed almost immediately after Jackson's death. Pearl clears up some of the allegations against Jackson as well as the public misconceptions surrounding them. We find out if Pearl Jr. ever actually met Michael Jackson over the four years she was covering him before his death.

We then take the story to June 25th, 2009 and find out where Pearl Jr. was when she heard the news that Michael Jackson had died. From there, we find out when Pearl began to question the veracity of the Jackson death. Looking to tackle the most promising piece of evidence, we have Pearl share the best clue that suggests the MJ Death Hoax is a reality and she details how Joe Jackson's behavior after MJ's death was particularly suspicious. She also talks about how there are a number of inconsistencies regarding Jackson's alleged grave and cemetery. We have Pearl respond to the Devil's Advocate perspective that there clues do not indicate a death hoax.

Next, we find out if Pearl has heard from any Jackson family members or insiders who may have indicated she is right or wrong about the death hoax. Pearl also discusses the proverbial 'heartbeat' of the death hoax community, which is the controversy over the incorrect middle name "Joseph" being used on all legal paperwork surrounding Jackson's death. Pearl then revisits the previous Michael Jackson death hoax from December 25th, 2008, exactly six months before the 'real' death, when an Arizona DJ claimed that Jackson had died.

Pearl addresses the alleged 'last photo' of Jackson, which showed him in an ambulance, and explains why it appears to be fake. We then discuss the film This Is It and find out about the myriad of clues that can be found in the movie. Tackling another 'clue' found in the official Jackson death story, Pearl details the many odd happenings that surrounded the transport of MJ's dead body. Looking at the other 'camp' that has emerged post-MJ death, Pearl talks about the "MJ was murdered" theories, why they do suggest something nefarious was afoot, and who would stand to gain if Jackson died. Pearl talks about why she does not believe the theories that Jackson was "silenced."

If the death hoax is real, we propose to Pearl, what is the role of Conrad Murray in the conspiracy? Pearl talks about her suspicions surrounding Murray's role in Jackson's death as well as how the trial may unfold. Pearl then teases us with some tantalizing personal clues which suggest she has been on the right track with the Michael Jackson death hoax. Pearl details some of the strange events of July 2011 which bolster the death hoax theory.

Looking at some of the tangential elements surrounding the death hoax theory, we ponder how many people were involved in the conspiracy as well as theories suggesting that the death hoax is part of an elaborate FBI sting operation. We examine other aspects of the death hoax like the presence of EMTs at the Jackson memorial and the theory that Jackson used a real dead body as a way of faking his death.

Getting to the heart of the matter, we have Pearl take us through the death hoax process and how Jackson could actually pull it all off. Staying within the realm that Jackson faked his death, we have Pearl speculate on where he might be now and what his long term agenda might be. We also examine the legalities of faking your own death and have Pearl respond to the possibilities that illegal activities would be required to pull off such a scheme.

Heading towards the close, we find out if Pearl believes that Michael Jackson will make a comeback as well as if there is anything that would prove to Pearl that Michael Jackson is, indeed, dead. We then get her response to the idea that the death hoax community simply cannot accept the fact that Michael Jackson is dead and are fabricating this theory to keep him alive in their minds. Pearl speculates on how long Jackson had planned the death hoax and reveals that he may have actually planned to fake his death in the year 2000. Wrapping up the conversation, we find out what's next for Pearl Jr., including more projects surrounding the death hoax as well as her coverage of the Conrad Murray trial.
