    238 - A Tale Of Two Dream Teams

    238 - A Tale Of Two Dream Teams

    At the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the only team anyone could talk about was the US men's basketball team, AKA 'The Dream Team'. It was the first time NBA players were allowed to compete at the Games and they were expected to dominate the tournament. At the same Olympics, Lithuania was competing for the first time since 1928, less than 18 months after declaring independence from the USSR. They had a lot of talent on their basketball team, but the country had no money to send their players. A story of revolution, a rock n' roll band and a whole load of tie dye. This is A Tale Of Two Dream Teams.

    237 - The Stranger of North Pond

    237 - The Stranger of North Pond

    Beginning in the 1980s, the citizens of North Pond in Maine were haunted by a mysterious intruder. Things like batteries and propane tanks went missing from cabins and homes, while more expensive items were left untouched. Decades passed without police getting any closer to finding the culprit who became known in town as the North Pond Hermit.

Ridiculously funny, silly but informative

20/10 I never miss an episode, they always make me laugh and it would take A LOT of effort from a terrible person to dislike them. I’m from Aus and have seen them multiple times travelled to the UK, even tho they come from Melbourne!

Love this podcast

Started listening in October 2019 and I like to start podcast from the start. I’m about 160 episodes deep. Just listened to ep 144: Juliane Koepcke one. It’s my new favourite. Fascinating story with a good amount of gasping in shock, grimacing in disgust and laughing.

Always brings tears to my eyes

If I’m having a bad day I’ll pop this on and end up crying of laughter. I started to subscribe to their Patreon because I couldn’t get enough!
