    The Moon Landing

    The Moon Landing

    Half a billion viewers around the world tuned in to watch Neil Armstrong take his first steps on the moon's surface in 1969. It was one of the greatest television moments in history - and many suggest Stanley Kubrick should have received a Best Director award for the broadcast. Even today, there's considerable speculation that putting a man on the moon is a task too difficult for even the best astronauts to accomplish.

    Marilyn Monroe Pt. 2

    Officially, Marilyn Monroe died of suicide on August 5th, 1962. But in the last weeks of her life, the CIA, the FBI, the Mafia, labor union leader Jimmy Hoffa, and possibly 20th Century-Fox were all surveilling Marilyn Monroe’s house. At the 56th anniversary of her death, we take another look at the conspiracies surrounding it. Evidence was missing, no one can agree on a timeline, and Robert Kennedy himself lied about that night. Was Marilyn Monroe involved with the mafia, a communist spy, or an inconvenient mistress? Or was she a victim of mental illness who never got the help she needed?

Havana syndrome

Please do an episode about “Havana syndrome”. Sounds terrifying and 200 plus state department workers are claiming they are victims. I love how informative you do your shows and would love to see what you uncover.

Audio production

Why does it sound like the woman’s voice is blowing my speakers? Could you turn down the gain on her microphone or something? The way her voice is produced is terribly bad.
