    Ep. 163 - The Black Lords

    During the early 1970s, a new age movement called Conscious Development run by a guru named Terri Hoffman became popular in Dallas, Texas. But this group also had a lot of dark secrets behind it. Some say, even murder.

    Ep. 162 - The Phantom Airships

    Between 1896 and 1897, hundreds of sightings were reported of strange airships over the United States and Europe, years before the Wright Brothers' first flight. Were these mysterious airships alien spacecraft? Or the work of clever human inventors? And were they perhaps the work of a secret society of aviators from decades earlier, who were all part of a vast conspiracy?

    Ep. 160 - The Rose and Cross

    In rural Georgia there stands a mysterious monument built in 1980 that bears a series of Ten Commandments that appear to call for wiping out much of humanity. Who built the Georgia Guidestones? And how do they tie into a secretive Protestant group from the Middle Ages who often get mentioned in a number of conspiracy theories?

    Ep. 159 - The Windigo

    Throughout the Algonquian speaking tribes of Canada there exist legends of a terrifying, cannibalistic creature that stalks the forest. Windigo legends have grown so popular they've even become part of our own modern pop culture in movies, comics and video games. But the history of the winding goes much deeper than that. And it turns out, involves some very real murders.

    Ep. 158 - The Boy in the Box

    In February 1957, a man walking through the woods of the Fox Chase area outside Philadelphia made a gruesome discovery. It was the body of a little boy, who had been badly beaten and discarded inside a cardboard box. More than six decades later, the identity of the little boy and who murdered him, remains a mystery.
