    The Zeta Reticuli Incident

    The Zeta Reticuli Incident

    This week's episode focuses on one of the earliest stories of alien abduction, that of Barney and Betty Hill who claimed to have been abducted by an alien spacecraft while they were driving back home to New Hampshire from vacation in Montreal. And even though our theory for what really happened is one of our most juvenile, we are standing by it!

    The Tale of John Lang

    The Tale of John Lang

    This week's episode, as voted for by our awesome supporters on Patreon in our monthly mystery vote, is the tale of John Lang who in 2016 was found dead in his burning home, stabbed three times after predicting his own murder in a series of posts on social media. He had uncovered corruption in the Fresno police department and documented all sorts of suspicious goings on as he became increasingly convinced they would make him pay.


    So did they?


    And is Masud secretly a bestselling novelist?

    The Life and Death of Sonny Liston

    The Life and Death of Sonny Liston

    Something a little different this week as we got together in the same (really echoey - sorry!) room and lay out a story suggested just one hour prior to recording by former guest of the show John Robertson. So listen as we all learn about the colourful life and mysterious death of boxing legend Sonny Liston, which takes in organised crime, Muhammad Ali and pecan nuts...

    Dead Creek: The Suspicious Death of Jonathan Luna

    Dead Creek: The Suspicious Death of Jonathan Luna

    A case which has nothing whatsoever to do with 90s movies but which we still managed to make aaaaaallllllll about 90s movies.


    In 2003, assistant attorney Jonathan Luna is found dead almost 100 miles from where he was last seen leaving his office, face down in a creek with his blood-spattered car idling nearby and 36 stab wounds all over his body, one of which severed his carotid artery.


    Cause of death? Drowning. What's more, the wounds seem to have come from his own knife. The cases for suicide vs homicide continue to be argued, especially as details of the trial Luna had been working on could point to either...


    Also, find out how much Masud used to eat in a day as a schoolboy because it's quite something.

    The Murder of Pier Paolo Pasolini

    The Murder of Pier Paolo Pasolini

    Pier Paolo Pasolini was an Italian film director, poet, writer, intellectual, actor, journalist, novelist, playwright and political figure who created such uproar during his life that he was eventually assassinated in a pretty brutal way in November 1975.


    To this day nobody knows really who did it but it could be one or more from one or all of the following groups; the mafia, the government, the far-right or even the freemasons. We try to get to the bottom of it at the same time as getting distracted by former heartthrob and current POS Ryan Phillippe...

    The Toxic Lady

    The Toxic Lady

    Gloria Ramirez was 31 years old when she was admitted to Riverside General Hospital Emergency Room in February 1994, delirious and speaking gibberish with heart palpitations. She died that night, officially from complications relating to cervical cancer but the story is far more complicated and strange... Many of the health professionals who worked on her that night were all seemingly poisoned by her skin, by her blood and generally just by being in her proximity.


    This is the story of the Toxic Lady...


    It's also the story of Chris' idea for a new Batman comic book and the episode where we find out Sooz's fetish...
