    The Montauk Project - The Real Life Monster Behind Stranger Things

    The Montauk Project - The Real Life Monster Behind Stranger Things

    On the eastern tip of Long Island lies Camp Hero. The now-defunct military base has been reclaimed as a state park. However, the reuse of the space does not come with any less conspiracy. For years residents of the neighboring town of Montauk wondered what happened behind the security lines of camp hero. The expectation was nefarious, of course. Today we have full-blown conspiracy theories involving mind control, mutants, and even time travel. So, what, if anything, about the Montauk Project, is true? One thing we know for sure is the stories inspired the Netflix mega-series Stranger Things.

    Frederick R Burnham - A Life of Hippos, Boy Scouts, and Wars

    Frederick R Burnham - A Life of Hippos, Boy Scouts, and Wars

    Fredrick Russell Burnham might have been the first model of American masculinity. His lifestyle would one day permeate into the 20th century as men across the country sought to adopt the mindset of Burnham. The long line of Fredrick's imitators is unsurprising since he was the inspiration for the founder of the boy scouts. Furthermore, one esteemed colleague of his had based much of his beliefs and behavior on him before rising to the president's office. Of course, we are talking about none other than Teddy Roosevelt. Burnham's influence surely is unmatched, and he has the combat record to back it up. However, few remember his part to play in the failed attempt to bring hippos to Louisianna. Fredrick Russell Burnham, along with a couple of unlikely allies, ran a campaign to popularize hippos into the American diet and begin farming hippos on American soil. The only thing that held back this plan was World War 1. Burnham's life, indeed, was extraordinary.

    Tarrare - The Man Who Quite Literally Ate Himself to Death

    Tarrare - The Man Who Quite Literally Ate Himself to Death

    In the modern era, few famous eaters are household names. Perhaps the only one who has risen to that level is Joey Chestnut. However, that hasn't always been the case. In the years of the sideshow, people would line up to watch people eat stuff—a strange hobby. One of the more famous cases of people who live off of eating was the man known as Tarrare. His astounding ability to swallow just about anything whole and survive drew crowds from around Europe. His abilities even attracted doctors. In hopes of understanding what allowed him to eat things that would usually kill, Tarrare became the subject of research. That research led to his use in the military as an espionage agent. No one else in history can say that their diet made them a government asset. There is no one like Tarrare.

    Jho Low - The Greatest White Collar Fraud Ever

    Jho Low - The Greatest White Collar Fraud Ever

    In the shadow of the 2008 housing crisis, one Malaysian businessman was building staggering wealth. It was an era wrought with financial fraud, and he was no different. Jho Low has become infamous for his lavish lifestyle and multi-million dollar benders. One of his most significant claims to fame was a new years eve event that he celebrated in Sydney, then boarded a private 747, flew to Las Vegas, and partied with celebrities so that he could do New Year's Eve twice. On the other hand, his crime is one of the largest financial scams in history at an estimated value of $4.5 billion. The immense scale of Jho Lows fraud is just the beginning of its intrigue because it also involved the Prime Minister of Malaysia, the Arab Emirates government, Goldman Sachs, and a slew of shell companies. Yet, after most of his associates have been arrested, Jho Low has not faced any punishment.

    Eve Online - The Video Game With a Better Economy Than Us

    Eve Online - The Video Game With a Better Economy Than Us

    Eve Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG for short [MMO for shorter {M for shortest}]). This game has repeatedly found itself in the headlines of more than just gaming magazines. Due to the ultra-realistic in-game economy, the game has often landed articles discussing the complexities of the in-game economic system in finance magazines. More than that, the game has made headlines about the large-scale scams that have taken place, sometimes robbing people of their money in the real world. While the in-game currency, isk, is not transferable to USD, sneaky players sell the currency for USD in the spooky dark web. This economy and the ability to maintain a position in the press have kept Eve Online's player base strong for nearly two decades.

    DashCon - The Tumblr Conference That Ended In A Sad Ball Pit

    DashCon - The Tumblr Conference That Ended In A Sad Ball Pit

    In July 2014, a handful of Tumblr users opened the doors to the long-awaited DashCon. The eclectic Tumblr community had been dreaming of a scenario where they could gather and celebrate their various fandoms for years. Unfortunately, when a group of friends got together a few months before, they had no clue what they were getting into. Needless to say, the event was a disaster. Before the conference even began, the team that planned the event was heavily laden with problems, from talent backing out to financial missteps. It all culminated in a sad ball pit that has become an internet meme. As a result, DashCon will go down in internet history.

One of my favorites!

Hey man! I actually had a friend recommend your podcast to me and I really love it! I have been driving for a route-based job for nearly 6 years now and am often looking for good podcasts to listen too. Needless to say I have listened to many many many podcasts and have heard some awful ones. I can honestly say that your show is one of the best that I have heard. I love the interesting topics that you cover and the much needed laughs throughout my day as well. Keep up the good work!
