DragonKing Dark Podcast - Episode 229 - 1971: The Manson Family Trial

8/2/2020
Host Karl Stern celebrates his birthday all week long with a look back at the year he was born- 1971. On this episode, we look back at the insane circus that was the Manson family trial. While the killings took place in 1969 and the trial began in 1970 it wasn't until 1971 that a verdict could finally be reached. The Charles Manson family trial was a media circus and the cult played continuous mind games with the court including some outrages antics.

Those Who Wander Podcast - Do You Really Want to Know - Free Bonus Show

7/31/2020
This is a fun show and a real mind bender. Tonya and Karl discuss some very esoteric questions including: What if you were born with an expiration date? You know the date of your death but not the nature of it. It would impact the world in lots of ways you might not think of. We also discuss time travel, the butterfly effect, and how seeing into either the future or visiting the past would impact your life in very profound ways. This is an example of the Patreon only content you get at...

DragonKing Dark Podcast - Wrestling's Curse of July - Episode 227

7/19/2020
Professional wrestling has had it's share of tragedy, accident, and true crime over it's lengthy American history but, July as it seems, has historically been the worst month of all. A major superstar comes to America and is the darling of the press and would spawn imitators for decades later. He also literally goes down with the ship. Car wrecks, freak boating accidents, and even murder. July is a month that, as a pro wrestler, should bear extra caution.

DragonKing Dark Podcast - Who Were the Olmecs - Episode 226

7/12/2020
DragonKing Dark takes another journey back in time to study ancient civilizations in our continuing effort to make sense out of the history of mankind, a timeline which seems to have a lot of pieces that don't fit. One of the great central American cultures surrounded by a lot of mystery are the Olmecs. They left us several giant carved heads. We presume these heads represent the Olmecs but why are they all wearing helmets? Have some of these same heads also been found in Africa? We try to...

DragonKing Dark - The Most Ancient of Civilizations - Episode 225

7/5/2020
This week on DragonKing Dark, host Karl Stern returns to the topic of ancient civilizations and tries to unpack the question - what is actually the most ancient organized civilization we know of? Most of us know of the Sumerians, and ancient Egypt of course, but recent archeological investigation is beginning to shed light on even older civilizations which are moving more north of the "cradle of civilization" of the Persian Gulf region. And what beyond that? Do we really even have a grasp of...

DragonKing Dark Podcast - Episode 221 - Tales of the Unexpected

6/7/2020
An amazing show written by Roald Dahl. From 1979 Tales of the Unexpected is a wonderful show. Similar in many ways to the Twilight Zone but with a more sinister undertone. This episode (season one, episode one) is an often repeated tale of a bet made between a teenage sailor and a mysterious, eccentric, older gentleman but the wager is a strange one. The twist ending is also bizarre. This retro television episode is one that will stick with you, make you uncomfortable, but yet enjoyable.
