    Legends of objects of value and grandeur surround people of similar nature, we look to these relics as milestones of our accomplishments as humans and sometimes these objects take on stories of their own. Weapons of great power and destruction, secrets that could change the world or powerful objects that in the wrong hands could cause the end of everything. 
    These sacred and special artifacts sometimes go missing and lost to time, where do these pieces of our history go and what happened to these mythic items?

    By Air, By Land and By Sea - Cryptids

    Humans are considered to be the top of our food chain, we are the biggest apex predators on the planet, contending with Great White Sharks, Lions, Tigers and Crocodiles…. Oh my. The question I put to you is, what if we were not? Stories of large humanoid creatures, flying beasts in far flung jungles and massive sea creatures make us question our place at the top of the food chain. Do these cryptids pose a threat to our very existence?  
    In this episode, a bat creature attacks an expedition team in a remote jungle, a large sea creature is unearthed after some major construction and an ugly creature cries tears of amber for its lost incarnation. One of these stories isn’t true, can you figure out which one? Welcome to A Hint of Fiction

Fun and Tricky

Been enjoying the show, having the tales told while I try to figure which is real and which is not is fun. Interesting array of different topics, so something new every time. A great listen, bottom line.
