    Stonehenge is made of Spam & Alfred the great was a Roman goddess! | Weird news 2021 July / August

    Stonehenge is made of Spam & Alfred the great was a Roman goddess! | Weird news 2021 July / August

    Ever wonder what Stonehenge is made from? The clue is in the title...but someone else has decided to make it from Spam.
    Today we're combining both July and August in this episode as Spamhenge was apparently the only weird thing that happened in July. To make up for it though, we have two tales in August which are both very odd.
    First up we have the case of the Coleman family which is a very sad tale (skip to 07:31 if you want to miss it) and then we head to something not so dark to discover the history behind London's oldest statue, King Alfred, which may actually be older than once thought, dating back to the roman times, 700 years before Alfred was even born!
    Thanks so much for watching!
    If you are new here, you may not know that Macabre London is a fortnightly podcast and YouTube show that delves into Londons haunted and gruesome history alongside discovering Macabre mini Mysteries from all over the world! These are on alternate weeks from each other so you get one London based tale and one from around the world on alternate fortnights.

    TikToker Discovers Time Travel & Youtuber discovers Yorkshire Yeti! | Weird News 2021

    TikToker Discovers Time Travel & Youtuber discovers Yorkshire Yeti! | Weird News 2021

    The news in 2021 got pretty weird! There were time travellers on TikTok and Yeti's in Yorkshire. Join me today to find out more about these weird stories.
    First up we learn about a tiktoker who is apparently from the future. Tiktok user Timetraveller2582 popped up claiming they were from the future and prophesying the weirdest events that may happen in the next few years.
    Then, a YouTube channel popped up with vintage videos which they'd discovered of a lost set of documentaries on @British Cryptids which spawned a channel of the same name.
    British Cryptids pieced together these documentaries into some kind of salvageable order and have published them throughout the year. Please go and subscribe to their channel for more vids. I can't wait to see what they unearth next.

    Aliens invade TESCO carpark & Birds set fire to village | All the weird news from 2021! March

    Aliens invade TESCO carpark & Birds set fire to village | All the weird news from 2021! March

    Aliens land in Tesco Car park and cause all sorts of problems with car keys.
    A village in Bangladesh experiences 500 fires in one year due to birds, children and a ton of other reasons.
    2021 was quite the year of weird news so I figured what would be fun is if we went back of the year, month by month before the year is through to regale some of the stranger stories from the year.
    As there are quite a few strange stories, I'll be spreading this out over a few episodes before the end of 2021 like a cathartic cleansing ritual, so if you’re new here, make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out when the next one is released.
    Today's stories feature weird news from March.

    500 fires in a year in Thakurgaon in Bangladesh
    &
    Aliens invade Tesco Carpark.
    So grab yourself a beverage and a suitably festive snack and let's look back on the bin fire that was 2021.

WelshYnys ,

Macabre London

Love love love, like Macabre history, then look no further, Nikki’s podcast is intriguing and interesting. Her voice is also very calming.

k8bell ,

Great Show

Really interesting stories in bite size, great fun😊

GirlHucknall ,

Interesting bite-size podcast

This is one of the shorter podcasts I listen to but it’s nice to have options of episodes of different lengths. The subject matter is fascinating - especially for someone who lives in London - and Nikki’s storytelling style is relaxed and engaging. If you need a new podcast in your life, give this one a go!
