    Uncharted: The Ever-Popular Kurt-Cobain-Was-Murdered Conspiracy

    Uncharted: The Ever-Popular Kurt-Cobain-Was-Murdered Conspiracy

    When something bad happens, we want to know why…the weirder and badder the event, the more we need to know…
    It can’t possibly be random…someone needs to be responsible and held accountable…someone needs to be blamed…and there had better not be any loose ends…
    Certain segments of the population have always been suspicious of the official story…forget the simplest of most logical explanation…these awful events or phenomenon’s are the work of some kind of secret cabal or organization pulling the strings of life on earth…it was a conspiracy…
    For example, the most famous murder of modern times was the assassination of JFK on November 22, 1963…more than sixty years later, it seems like no one believes that lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman…
    To be fair, they might be right…there’s been a lot of investigation into the JFK case over the decades…i’m one of those nuts who reads, watches, and listens to everything involved with the assassination…and I gotta tell you that i’m convinced this was the result of a loose need-to-know operation involving the CIA, the deep stage, Cuban exiles, and American mobsters…
    There’s also something called “Occam’s razor” which dates back to the 14th century…this Monk—William of Occam—was annoyed at how people blamed supernatural forces when even the simplest thing went wrong…his answer to that was “look, the simplest and most obvious explanation is usually the correct one”…
    But try that approach with people who believe the earth is flat and that we never went to the moon…Covid-19 was engineered by the media…and the Illuminati live beneath the Denver airport…
    The world of conspiracy theories is a bottomless pit of weirdness…and when it comes to music, one of the deepest and strangest of these theories has to do with what happened above a greenhouse in Seattle on April 5, 1994…
    Boy, have I got stories—multiple stories, in fact—about this one…in fact, it might be the most compressive study you’ve ever heard on the subject…this is uncharted: music and mayhem in the music industry, episode 12: it’s the ever-popular Kurt-Cobain-was-murdered theory…

Episode Thought

Hi Kathy I just wanna say this podcast is awesome also can you make a episode on Video consoles and games of the 1990-2000

Craig R28 ,

Great way to go back in time

Very enjoyable podcast. I was a teenager for the majority of the 90’s and really enjoy this little time capsule. Great variety of topics including pop culture, news and a mix of important historical events as well as quirky fun things that could only belong in that decade.

Great research and storytelling. The host paces the episodes well and the recording quality is top-notch and balances. Easy listening while driving, doing chores or whatever needs tending to.

SL Woodbridge ,

Great nostalgia!
