    The Phantom Dark Age Pt. 2

    In the late 1980s, historical revisionist, Heribert Illig recognized a massive discrepancy in our calendar. Illig began to construct his Phantom Time Hypothesis in an effort to prove that Otto III fabricated 297 years of history, therefore explaining why the Dark Ages were so dark after all.

Nice disclaimer

“While neither of us are conspiracy theorists...” What, are you legally obligated to make awkward disclaimers at the beginning of all Parcast podcasts? The hosts sound like the disembodied voices that tell you to report unattended packages at the airport.

Excellent

Good, thoughtful subjects, well researched. I’ve enjoyed all I’ve listen to. Keep it up. Thanks.

Good... then startlingly loud

I have enjoyed every podcast I’ve listened to. I find them very interesting. I do, however, like to listen before bed, and more often than not I doze off. Not due to content. I always go back and catch up on what I missed. It just relaxes me and I nod off. I enjoy that as my bedtime routine. But then, like a fire alarm going off, they always get SUPER loud at the end. They startle me awake, my heart races. To the point where I don’t know that I can continue listening at night. I know the target audience isn’t sleeping people. But all that loudness at the end seems so unnecessary and it’s ruining a good thing for me. 🤷🏽‍♀️
