Two friends with an affinity for wine chat about all things weird, odd, or strange. New episodes every other week!
2020 has been called many things: a circus, a horror movie, and a dumpster fire to name a few. To say it's been a crazy year is an understatement. Between murder hornets, the fear of an alien invasion, and even a new Mothman sighting, there hasn't been a pause on the wheel of misfortune. Tonight, we're going to dive into some of the weirdest things that happened this year, as well as some of the more positive and less acknowledged events. Let's talk about it.
Krampus, also known as the Christmas Demon, is essentially Santa's evil twin. Instead of a long white beard and a sleigh full of presents, this spirit has coarse dark fur and a bag filled with the souls of children. If you're nice, you may wake up to a stocking full of presents. But if you're not so nice, you may receive coal instead. And for the especially misbehaved, prepare to be whisked away to Hell, where you will be the main course at the feast of the dead. You better watch out, because Krampus is coming to town.
On March 8, 2014, a plane full of passengers took off from a Malaysian airport, never to be seen again. After years of investigation, we're no closer to understanding what happened or where all those people are. Hijacking? Wormhole? Government coverup? One thing is for sure, the disappearance of Flight MH370 is one of the strangest mysteries in aviation history. Let's talk about it.
Outspoken and strong-willed, Princess Diana was unique among the royal family. Known as the Peoples Princess, she was publicly adored by the country and world alike. An advocate for countless charities and mental health awareness, she made an impact that still shines today. Tragically, her life was cut short due to an accident no one saw coming. But was it really an accident? Many speculate about a possible plot to silence her. Could she have been murdered? Let’s talk about it.
Clowns, with their mask-like makeup and overly cheerful demeanors, have often been the subject of nightmares. From Pennywise to John Wayne Gacy, evil clowns are a lot more prevalent in modern times than the happy go lucky ones. Especially since 2016, when viral videos of creepy clowns causing all kinds of chaos took over the internet. How has a childhood memory become so twisted in the adult brain? And have clowns ever been fun, or have they always caused fear and paranoia in their victims? Let’s talk about it.
The Dyatlov Pass Incident
The Dyatlov Pass, with it’s howling wind and icy terrain, is home to one of the greatest tragedies in Russian history. It is also the subject of a very confusing unsolved mystery. It was here that a group of 9 young hikers met their untimely demise due to what was later described as “an unknown, compelling force.” Theorists propose many explanations, ranging from strange to even stranger. Could it have been a yeti? Or perhaps the government? Or was it simply natural causes? Let’s talk about it.
