Ep 6.0 - Oak Island

The mysteries surrounding Oak Island, Nova Scotia are the things childhood dreams are made of. Pirates, curses, prophecies, buried treasure, and medieval knights are just some of the lore associated with this place. In this episode we attempt to provide an overview of what’s happened there over the last 200 years, and give our take on the popular theories presented. We hope you’ll join us on this adventure by sharing your thoughts on one of our social media platforms. As always, we...


Ep 5.0 - Mandela Effect

Do you remember the Berenstein Bears or the Berenstain Bears? Is it “mirror mirror on the wall’ or “magic mirror on the wall”? Either way, Chase is not the fairest of them all, that’s for sure. Do you remember the 90’s cult classic Shazam starring Sinbad? Would you be surprised to learn this movie was never produced (at least not in this timeline)? In this episode we dive head first into exploring the phenomenon of the Mandela Effect. We ask ourselves if this widespread misremembering is a...


Ep 4.0 - (Not) Fake News

We don’t know about you, but we’re pretty tired of hearing about fake news. We’ve been talking about it for a couple years now and we’ve had enough. So in this episode we wanted to shine some light on a handful of REAL stories that might sound fake. We’re not saying these stories are particularly news worthy, but we find them entertaining and we think you will too. We made fact checking easy for you. All of the links for these stories are listed here. We haven’t done this kind of citation...


Ep 3.0 - Illuminati

What do lizard people, Beyoncé, and the cast of Boy Meets World have in common? The Illuminati of course, or at least that’s what the conspiracy theorists on the internet tell us. In this episode, we summarize all we’ve learned about the Illuminati and share the evidence (or lack thereof) and our conclusions with you. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject! We hope you enjoy the discussion, but if you don’t, come troll us on Facebook, Twitter @STFtalk or Instagram...


Ep 2.0 - Strange Medicine

At some point we’ve all heard about some weird medical practices of the past, right? We’ve heard horror stories about lobotomies, blood letting, and how “humors” were thought to impact mental health. If that’s what you’re here for, sorry, that’s NOT what we are going to be talking about. Don’t get us wrong, we thought this was all fascinating but we wanted to know more about some of the lesser known practices and what impact they’ve had on modern medicine. We wanted to go where no podcast...


Ep 1.1 - Simulation Theory Outtakes

Making the first episode wasn't easy. Enjoy some of the funnier moments from our first attempt at creating the podcast.


Ep 1.0 - Simulation Theory

How sure are you that you are real? Is it possible that you are just a line of code coexisting with billions of other lines of code in a world designed by people living hundreds of thousands of years from our perception of now? Sound crazy? In our first podcast we have a couple beers and start talking about simulation theory, a concept generally accepted as plausible by some of the smartest minds of our lifetime. Grab a cold one and join us as we consider the possibility that nothing is as...
