They got one, sort of. Soon after arrival, a colonist is murdered by natives so with food dwindling they send a colonist back to England for more supplies. When he returns, he discovers what no archeologist, historian or ballywhacker podcasters have been able to explain for centuries. On this...

Ep. 16 Virtual Reality

10/5/2017
More
The Virtual Reality craze is taking off. VR is no longer just about teleporting yourself inside a video game to battle ferocious monsters and diabolic villains. In the not-so-distant future you might be able to take vacations, walk a day inside someone else’s shoes, viewing the world as they world, or share an intimate experience as you would in person – all from the comfort of your own home. Literally everything you do today could ultimately be inside a VR experience. But…what does that...

Ep. 15 - Sex in the Ancient World

9/22/2017
More
On this show the lads drift down a path of historical, social, and absolute inappropriateness. Believe it or not humans have been sick, twisted, and ripe with odd sexual proclivities since the beginning of time - you just don’t hear about it on the Discovery Channel. The gloves, pants and roller sandals come off as they go deep into sex in the ancient world. What were the first vibrators like? How was infidelity viewed? Why exactly were reptile fetishes acted upon? Journey into the sexual...

Ep. 14 - The Leftovers

8/29/2017
More
At the same moment on October 14th, one out of every fifty people on Earth vanished. Shockingly plucked by death’s talons, all depart without a trace. This is the premise of HBO’s fictional hit show, “The Leftovers” which recently finished its third and final season. Those remaining were left to ponder the inexplicability of their own mortality and navigate through a world filled with loss and confusion. On this episode, Grognostics asks the question - what if this happened in real life?...

Ep. 13 - Reincarnation Part II

8/19/2017
More
Woven out of a precocious cloth of militaristic acclaim, Matt possessed a combat blueprint very few humans did. That in itself wasn't the intrigue. Many decorated militants have achieved mastery in specific battles. There was, however, one small difference between him and the others - he was just five years of age. In an appendix to Episode 12, the lads sit down with a close friend of the show to enjoy his fascinating story of first-hand reincarnation. Listen as the idea of reincarnation...

How much do you know about your past lives? Were you a young settler on the Oregon Trail, an octopus, or an award-winning-bowling-alley-employee during your last time on Earth? Did you know that birthmarks indicate how you died in your last life? Can a person reincarnated find the murderer that ended their last life? Can Steve sing like the Backstreet Boys? These are some of life's most-asked questions solved on this latest episode. Kelly Stravers, Lauren Boyle and Karen Starr guest appear...

This 11th show puts the cast back in podcast as the Grognostic lads are joined by some of their closest friends for two parts hilarity, three parts nonsensical and ninety-nine parts schizophrenic. There’s a blooper reel, a a trivia gameshow, beer, an exclusive interview with The Producer and if you listen hard enough you’ll hear a yeti making love to an apparition who previously fell down a well. Only three of those are true. Pour yourself a cold one and join guests George Sellas, Karen...

Ep. 10 - The Mandela Effect - PART II

7/14/2017

First came Godfather II. Alien(s). Terminator 2. All were blockbuster sequels that crushed their predecessor. Today, another breaches the paranormal surface – Mandela Effect Part II. The producer and Amie are back for a sequel long-awaited by no one that dissects the validity of the entire concept itself. Could it simply be a case of Miss Remembering? (Beauty pageant winner from a Mandela Effect- created state west of Oregon called Remembering Island). Was it a concept fabricated by nerds...

How much do you really know about the reality you live in? Can you be certain this reality is the same one you grew up in? The one you were in last month? Yesterday? On this episode, the lads examine a reality where the Producer didn’t get enough hugs when he was little, dive deep into the life of a 1952 Berlin men’s slalom captain who knew the importance of maintaining his vital juices... oh, and discover that the reality we live in is changing ever-so-slightly every day. No biggie. With...

Ep. 8 - The Sumerians

6/13/2017
More
The Sumerians developed writing, invented the wheel, redirected rivers, partied with aliens, wrote secret scrolls, and basically accomplished more in five minutes of existence than the hosts of the show have accomplished in 40 years. Archeologists, had they returned our calls would have confirmed though - they never hosted a podcast. Bam! How you like them apples Sumer? Hail an Uber Camel and travel on a hilarious expedition to Mesopotamia’s most mystifying and ancient culture. Come for...

Ep. 7 - Karma

Disclaimer: You will be rewarded karmically by listening to this podcast. Ah, that Karma - she’s an unforgiving lassie. Some might even say karma’s a b__ch. Help an old lady across the street, grab a couple cold ones, then journey on an auditory safari through the spiritual concept of karma on today’s show. How does karma work? Is it real or just something conjured up by hippy store owners to sell more crystals? Is it instant or spread out over multiple lifetimes? Do we have a karmic...

Ep. 6 - Ancient Tomb Curses

5/9/2017
More
On this hilariously tantalizing episode, the Grognostic lads grab the sarcophagus by the esophagus and exhume their way inside ancient Egypt’s most sinister intrigue - tomb curses. Are they real, mere coincidences, or just something Brendan Frazier conjured up to get more people to watch his films? And of course, some of life’s most-queried conundrums will also be addressed - why don’t we see more mummy apparitions on boat cruises? How come there aren’t more cat selfies on social media?...

Ep. 5 - Crop Circles

4/28/2017

Ever had the feeling you’ve been abducted and probed by beings from another world? If so it just means that your roommate is getting friendlier than you’d probably like. On this episode Jason and Steve teeter on the edge of paranormal and prank when they dive into the disputed world of crop circles. Bringing a level of comedic gravitas found nowhere else, they even manage to discuss menstrual cycles. I’m sorry, what’s that now? So...are crop circles real? Fake? A message from Mel Gibson?...

Ep. 4 - Skara Brae

4/21/2017

What do balls of stone, magically delicious inhabitants, and sexual escapades with an iconic, iron tower in France have to do with the most advanced neolithic society to walk the planet? Absolutely nothing, but we figured we’d talk about them anyway. Skara Brae, a stone-built, prehistoric village off mainland Scotland remained untouched for over 5000 years. Once discovered, it brought to light how little we know about the history of our species. On this episode, explore the...

80-ton statues walking on their own. Magical spirit essence raining down from the heavens. A thriving island population mysteriously turning to cannibalism. A birdman cult. The remains of the Easter Bunny pristinely preserved in a shallow grave. Four of these are true. Well, maybe three. Two tops. On this show, your least-favorite lads tackle the most mystifying island on the planet, Easter Island, while also showcasing their award-winning acting talents.
