    Ep. 132 - The Psychic Spies Pt. 1

    For 23 years, the United States Government secretly ran a research program into using alleged psychics for intelligence gathering purposes. What's truly bizarre about the program, is the final report by the government might prove psychic abilities are real.

    Ep. 131 - The Miser

    In 1973, John Paul Getty III, the grandson of J. Paul Getty, the world's richest man, was kidnapped in Rome. What happened next was one of the most bizarre and twisty kidnap stories in history. My special guest for this episode is Moxie LaBouche of the "Your Brain on Facts" podcast.

    Ep. 130 - The Massacre

    Ep. 130 - The Massacre

    Normally I release new episodes every Monday, but I'm releasing this special episode early in honor of Juneteenth. In this episode I discuss one of the ugliest racist incidents in American history, the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. It started with allegations of a black man assaulting a white woman. That led to an angry mob of white Tulsa residents burning the prosperous black neighborhood of Greenwood to the ground.
