    Amnesia

    Amnesia

    When it comes to sudden memory loss, the most common forms of amnesia are often short-term, and stem from trauma to the brain. But some cases are much more inexplicable. People with Dissociative Amnesia don't experience brain damage, but still lose large chunks of time… and can even forget their entire identity. This episode originally aired in February 2021.

    Time Travel Pt. 2

    Time Travel Pt. 2

    How would a time machine work? Physicists have been engaging the question for decades — and building theoretical frameworks to make it happen. From designs like the Tipler Cylinder, to the paradoxes that imply time travel's improbability, how close are we really to folding the fabric of space-time back on itself… and breaking free from the constraints of time as we know it? This episode originally aired in November 2022.

Amazing podcast

I’ve been getting into shows by The Parcast Network lately and this one is another winner. I love everything these guys do. I rate this show, and I also strongly recommend searching ‘parcast network’ and browsing the range of shows they have over various topics because they’re all awesome. Great show 5/5

EINSTEIN

Re Time Travel podcasts: Complete misinformation about Einstein. Cannot listen if podcasters misinform or outright lie to their audience.

Too much of a good thing?

•EPISODE: Nostradamus, Parts 1 and 2, in which a fascinating and controversial figure is profiled.

An interesting presentation, but there is no reason — apart from Parcast’s/Spotify’s business model — to stretch it to two episodes.

Skip the second episode if you have better things to do. It’s just a collection of tangents about the zodiac, roulette and other filler, with a little debunking at the very end.

The “Conspiracy Theories” episodes on Nostradamus are better.
•EPISODE “The Piri Reis Map” in which the hosts make an effort to pronounce “Antarctica” with all its consonants. Thank you.

Fascinating mystery ... I’ll be looking into it more.
