The Worst Years of Humanity

12/31/2020
2020 has seen deadly viruses, rioting, unemployment, general unrest and well the return of McDonald's McRib. So let's be honest with ourselves. Was it really that bad? It got us thinking; we all feel 2020 has been the worst year of our lifetimes but where does it rank in the history of worst years? Famine, war, disease, nuclear fallout, massive natural disasters have plagued humanity since the rise of our existence. So what was the actual worst year. Was it 2020? In the spirit of the New...

12/17/2020
When it comes to ancient discoveries centered around the core principles of humanity's story, no one is more apt to uncovering lost enigmas than our very own Sir Matthew. From taming savage turkeys in Roanoke to uncovering secret elixirs in vampire lairs to the unveiling of Santa's whereabouts in the North Pole, Sir Matthew's marveled exploits have fallen nothing short of prodigious in the advancement of our species.

Ep. 60 Ancient Architecture Part II

11/19/2020
On today's show we continue on in our quest to determine whether ancient builders had just mad building skills, help from aliens or if we're missing it entirely. Newsflash: We're missing it entirely. Something at least. Enjoy.

Ep. 59 Ancient Architecture

11/12/2020
The Great Pyramid of Giza stands 481 feet high, and was built thousands of years ago when only primitive building and engineering methods existed...we think. Ancient structures are scattered all over Europe, Africa, Asia, North America, and even Australia and Antarctica that are quite unexplainable. Since we're the most advanced humans in our species' timeline how did these ancient civilizations manage such feats? I mean, these inferior cultures barely had pots to pee in right? We're the top...

Ep. 58 Eastern State Penitentiary w/ Expert Paul Kahan

10/23/2020
Closed in 1971, Philadelphia’s Eastern State Penitentiary is considered by many to be one of the most haunted places in the country. It’s been featured on multiple television shows and is visited by dozens of paranormal researchers each year.

Ep. 57 The Winchester Mystery House w/ expert Chris Garcia

10/15/2020
Known to many as one of the country's most haunted houses, the Winchester Mystery house holds just as many peculiarities in the physical world as it does in the spirit. What started as a modest farmhouse was turned into the most unorthodox house ever built over three decades of continuous construction. With a staircase that leads to a ceiling, doors that lead to nowhere and over 160 total rooms, 40 of which are bedrooms, one has to ponder the very same question - how on earth would I ever...

The Only Supernatural

9/24/2020
Science can generally disprove most supernatural to an extent. But there is one that is closer to all of us than one might think. Written by Grognostics.

Beer Sessions Vol V - The Porter

9/10/2020
Many of you have tried a porter, typically sweet and laden with that feisty maiden called alcohol. You've probably even enjoyed one or two. But have you ever tried a porter? A porter. You know a person employed to carry luggage and other loads, especially in a railroad station, airport, or hotel? Well I have, and let me tell you - it hurts when they don't call you after a first date. It hurts a lot. Awkward... On today's continuing beer sessions segment we teach you about the history and...

Ep. 56 Intuition with Sunil Godse

8/27/2020
We’ve all had that feeling that we should be or should not be doing something whether we have a gut feeling the result will be good or it will end up bad. So what is that? Is THAT intuition? But the question is, how do we know when to follow what our intuition is telling us and when it’s simply a manifestation cooked up by our fleeting, often fearful minds? Or…let’s think larger. What if intuition is a slight peak into a superpower humans have harnessed in the past and possibly could again?...

Sir Matthew at the Track

8/10/2020
Grognostics is a podcast where we encourage you to learn, and expand your mind when it comes to the world, yourself, past, present and future. Most of our shows are based around the premise that by listening it will encourage deep thought, reflection and trigger curiosity for more. But then there are the shows that, well don't. This is one of those shows. This is one that sparks one's funny bone and one's sudden urge to stay away from all legal and illegal drugs of any kind. You're welcome....

Ep. 55 Hypnosis with Joshua Strongin

7/23/2020
Hypnosis is a human condition involving focused attention, reduced peripheral awareness, and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion according to Wikipedia at least. But what do they know? Not more than your ole' Grognostics crew, am I right? Well, not really but luckily, on today's show we sit down with real-life Hypnotist Joshua Strongin to see what this intrigue we may have seen at parties or gatherings is all about. Is it real? An act? Is there more going on inside the human brain...

Beer Sessions Vol IV - The UnCraft July 4th Edition: American Lager

7/5/2020
Sure, maybe you, along with your fancy, snifter glass can swirl around a blackberry cream sour, dry-hopped, wet-hopped, hip-hopped ale, take a deep inhale, have a swig and tell your chums the name of the brewery, the type of barley, and how many brewers lost part of their beard into the wort during the production. But only Grognostics can tell you which adjunct lagers, or American Lagers are which in a blind taste test. Or well, I mean, they can tell you some. I think. Not too sure actually....

Ep. 53 Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 Part I - The Missing Plane

7/2/2020
A Commercial flight operated by Malaysia Airlines took off in the early morning of March 8th, 2014 heading to Beijing China. After what appeared to be normal protocol up until about an hour into the flight, air traffic control replied what would be the final words ever heard from the plane – “goodnight,” as it left one air jurisdiction. After that, a series of mostly unknown events would lead to the aircraft being the only one with the exception of a plane flown by one Amelia Erhardt to...

5G frequency has clandestinely been showing up as your cell phone's selected choice service whether you've noticed or not. It's entered our airwaves with much controversy. What does it mean though exactly? Is it safe? Is it the cause of Coronavirus planted by Bill Gates or better yet, aliens? What about an alien version of Bill Gates? We dive into the facts, the fiction, and everything in-between as the Grognostic lads wet their whistle if you will getting back into the fray of this...

Sir Matthew Quarantine

5/28/2020
So what exactly has our favorite Grognostics character been doing during this shelter-in-place? Is he taking this opportunity to explore the sights, void of any commoners getting in the way of his explorations? Is he discovering new lands? Species? Breakfast options in the Transylvania Alps? We're warming up to get back to it here at the Grognostics studios (Jason's shoe closet) so get ready for more consistent Thursday posts going forward.
