Entertaining

Dives into lots of legends, and movies. Not a fan of the movie reviews, but amazing content on myths and legends. Very bubbly personalities, people that I would love to set and have a beer with while covering a wide range of topics. Definitely a great way to open your mind, and learn more about everything.

A podcast to drop you into the rabbit hole of strange!

Highly recommend this podcast to scratch your itch of strangeness! Andrew and Amber take you on a wild ride ranging from cryptids to ancient legends and lost civilizations. Guaranteed to have you searching the lost corners of history and myth! They do a great job at researching and presenting every topic! Would 10/10 this podcast if I could, can’t get enough of the strange new things that they talk about. Keep up the great work Andrew and Amber. You have a life long listener and supporter!!!

Great topics!

I really like the topics on this podcast! Once you’ve listened to weird history/paranormal/true crime podcasts for long enough there’s just so many repeats but into the portal always has fresh content I haven’t heard before.
