As the attention surrounding the "Betz Sphere" continues to grow, so do the theories behind its origin and the number of investigations.

Episode 2 - Who Is Gerri?
Gerri Betz was known in Jacksonville as a strong community leader and entrepreneur who happened to live in a beautiful castle with her husband and kids and the family dog. When a metal sphere lands on her property and disrupts that life, she talks to reporters about it for many weeks — but suddenly stops. Who is Gerri Betz? Can she be trusted?
Episode 1 - 'Darndest Thing I Ever Saw'
In 1974 a metal sphere was discovered on a prominent family’s property in Jacksonville, Florida.

I really enjoyed this podcast and your effort to shed some light on this mystery. It’s good to revisit things like this to bring attention back to it and maybe view it with a new lens. You have an awesome personality as well!
Would love to see an investigation into more mysteries. 5 stars
kind of pointless if you know the Astonishing Legends version exists
doesn’t really add any info, and as far as the story—it’s done far better by Astonishing Legends podcast. host even mentions a couple times she wasn’t sure if she should even continue this one since theirs was so much better. she should have stuck to that instinct. this one adds nothing.
I loved this and found it fascinating, I keep checking back to see if there’s an update - I sure hope there will be!
