    PRINCESS DIANA'S DEATH (PT 2) IN SEARCH OF THE TRUTH

    In part two we discuss witness accounts of the tunnel accident, an ex- MI6 agents claim that Henri Paul was an MI6 operative, and much more. We focus on the story of Thanh Van Le, the driver of a white Fiat Uno who may well have caused the crash and whose picture was later identified at the British Police investigation as being the driver of a white Fiat uno as it left the tunnel veering wildly. We also discuss Diana's relationship with Dodi Fayed and opinions offered as to whether or not they were close to marriage.

    PRINCESS DIANA'S DEATH: (PT 1) A NATION STUNNED

    PRINCESS DIANA'S DEATH: (PT 1) A NATION STUNNED

    On August 31st, at approximately 12:30am, in a tunnel in Paris, the Mercedes Benz carrying Princess Diana, her lover Dodi Fayeed, her bodyguard Trevor Rees Jones, and their driver Henri, slammed into a concrete abutment, killing Henri and Dodi, critically injuring Diana, and somehow sparing the life of Trevor Rees Jones.
    Diana had told her closest friends that there was a plot to kill her in a car accident. She had written this down and handed it to her butler less than a year before her death. Inquests were held, and every theory and worry was brought into the open in an effort to put the questions to rest- yet most people in the UK, depending upon the poll you read, still believe that she was murdered.
    We share the details, the facts, and the theories in this story. We are leaving the final verdict up to you.

    #13 OF 465LISTENER FAVS THE NAZI GOLD TRAIN

    #13 OF 465LISTENER FAVS THE NAZI GOLD TRAIN

    For years the legend of a missing Nazi train loaded with stolen treasure consisting of everything from gold bullion to the priceless Russian Amber Room have circulated in southwestern Poland. In August of 2015 two men, one Polish, and one German, both treasure hunters with advanced geo imaging equipment, approached the Polish authorities claiming that they had located a buried Nazi armored train 80 feet below the surface of the earth in a small town near the German border. The images, which are available to a google search, do tend to show the tops of the armored pillbox style gun mounts that sat atop the armored trains, which the Germans used to transport weapons and treasure. The Polish authorities assigned a team of scientists to evaluate the find and they reported back at a press conference in December. This is the story of the Nazi train, which involves two treasure hunters, a deathbed confession, a castle which provided a station for Hitler's underground railway, and a missing treasure worth billions.

Willie D from Tennessee ,

Love this $h!t ! (Stuff)

Have been listening to a couple of the 1001 channels. It is informative, amusing, and enlightening. Keep the podcast coming. I drive a lot of miles and these keep me attentive between my stops. Love the content and clarity of the stories.

MACSROVER ,

Please turn down the intro. Music

Very good podcast. However, the intro music blows out Myers when listening on my AirPods.

PattyPeebles ,

Excellent Podcast

Thank you dear Jon for this podcast. I learn so much from all your insight and gentle teaching in this and all the 1001 family of podcasts. Patty Peebles Bluefield West Virginia. I’m amazed every time I listen.
