Dyatlov Pass Bonus Show w/ Dr. Adeline Pinkerton

How much do we really know about Yuri Yudin, the hiker who turned back and discontinued the trek with his nine fellow hikers in the Ural Mountains at Dyatlov Pass? Come to think of it how much do we know about any Yuri for that matter? What if we told you that Yuri Cuntsovich was lurking right under your nose the entire time. And possibly lurking under... ok sorry, going down a weird, strange path now... But why? Why would Mr. Cuntsovich do such a thing? Exactly. We didn’t feel like our...

I know this is a crazy idea, but we've made the collective decision to do something consistent on this show. One thing at least. We will now be posting at least every other Thursday. And sometimes, if our mood swings, and the furry clown with the ball gag in his mouth will let us within an arm's reach of a computer from our cages - every Thursday. So get used to checking your feeds folks. Because the Thursday posting begins now. Well actually it began a few weeks ago but that was technically...

Yes this is something different. We can’t help it.

Ep. 38 Bigfoot Part II with Unearthing Paranormalcy

4/11/2019

My gosh it seemed like just last week we posted the beginning of our Bigfoot duet and already it's coming to a close. So many questions have you? (Said by a Bigfoot Yoda). Well, rest assured my little Bigfoot aficionado. Today, we answer them. You know - important things like has any of the group ever seen a hobo with a lantern? Did Unearthing Paranormalcy host Amy see a Bigfoot or was it a boar or her dad coming to steal her fish in the night. (No other theories were presented). And exactly...

Ep. 37 Bigfoot Part I with Unearthing Paranormalcy

4/4/2019
More
His legend has spanned centuries dating back to early sightings in the 1700s and it continues to grow today. He’s been the subject of countless documentaries, YouTube Videos, themed tourist destinations and well, podcasts. Thousands have claimed to have witnessed the hairy beast in the wild. Now, it is true that most of these bigfoot “witnesses” are white men who likely moonlight as serial killers or at the very least are dangerously-avid Star Wars figurine collectors which means they...

That Bigfoot is One Big Tease

Jason and I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with a real-life Bigfoot or our podcast doppelganger; one of the two to talk about the man (well not really), the myth (eh probably not), the legend (ok fine), Bigfoot. On this teaser we introduce you to our fellow collaborators, Unearthing Paranormalcy, who we had a blast recording with. They do similar topics to our show with a hint of drinking and comedic flare, so one might say our podcast community has commenced. You can find their...

Ep. 36 Underwater Cities

3/8/2019

At different points of your life you’ve sat back and pondered, probably while under the influence of a psychedelic, where do I fit into humanity’s timeline? Did civilizations equally or more advanced than us exist thousands of years ago? What is my purpose? Did I leave toaster oven on at home this morning? These along with other life conundrums are questions we ask ourselves on this podcast. On today’s show we answer one of these perplexing introspections. Yes. Yes, you did leave the toaster...

On today’s show we sit down to analyze a chemical with roots dating back to early man that can grab ahold of you and often never let go. A chemical which can trigger decision-making well outside of normal, sometimes waging wars, dividing families, and most alarming - causing euphoric distractions, leading to one’s fantasy football team going in the toilet. So what is this exactly? Guess you’ll just have to listen to find out. An under-the-weather Steve grabs the mic and asks you all to be...

In 1959 nine experienced hikers went missing in the snowy Ural Mountains of the Soviet Union. Over the course of the next several months, each hiker's body was discovered, most of which were one-by-one. With each discovery, the mystery weaved itself tighter and tighter around unexplained and terrifying. First it was discovered their tent was cut from the inside indicating something had scared them out into the arctic night. One had bone fractures. Another was missing its tongue and eyes. At...

Ep. 33 - Tribe

1/18/2019
More
Throughout history, dating back thousands of years humans lived in small groups called tribes. Each person had a designated role and was expected to sacrifice for the greater good of the group. If they didn’t, people may have died or suffered. The concept of tribe is so deep-rooted in the human DNA that soldiers would prefer to return to war with their fellow comrades instead of being members of the very society they longed for when they were fighting. It’s the reason that settlers who were...
