Conspiracy Theories - Psychology, Types, and Real Conspiracies
I try to figure out what really happened and what's really going on by learning about conspiracy theories, why they're so prevalent right now, and the type of people who rarely believe what they're told, and how often they end up being true.

Unsolved Mysteries - True Crime and Internet Vigilantism
I pin up pictures and articles on my wall, attach strings to pins to connect the dots, and try to solve some unsolved mysteries. People can't get enough of true crime and with the Internet and the speed of social media, it's not a surprise that people are taking it upon themselves to crack open cold cases and find clues that detectives have missed.

Ghost Hunting - History, Techniques, and Cleansing
It's October so this month Im going to focus on more morbid hobbies.
I light some candles, turn on a fog machine, and try to channel the other side. I learn all about ghosts across time and cultures, study common ghost hunting techniques, and try to detect paranormal activity in my house.

Hypermiling - Techniques for Efficient Driving
I squeeze every mile out of gallon of gas in my cars to save some money and just because I can. I try some safe and somewhat unsafe ways of making my gas guzzling cars more efficient while trying not to be a victim of road rage.

Customer ReviewsSee All
Love this podcast. Great sound with clips from interviews/events (which is a pet peeve of mine in other podcasts). Interesting information! Would recommend to anyone. Especially those of us who listen to a lot of podcasts and just want to learn about something new. Who knows? Maybe you’ll end up with a new hobby.
Bite sized experience
A short but informative look into various hobbies. Well scripted and researched content with good attention to audio details. Worth a listen.
