    The Bizarre Tale of the Circleville Letters

    The Bizarre Tale of the Circleville Letters

    The small town of Circleville, Ohio is, in most respects, a normal place. It has all the usual trappings of a small community: churches, grocery stores... and a few skeletons in the figurative closet. Back in the 1970s, it was terrorized by a series of strange, anonymous letters threatening to expose some of the town's most scandalous secrets. In today's episode, Ben and Matt dive into the mystery of the Circleville letters -- a mystery that remains, to some, unsolved in the modern day. They don’t want you to read our book.

    Vigilante Justice: The Story of La Sombra Negra

    In the wake of a horrific civil war, El Salvador found itself confronted with enormously pervasive, deadly gang activity -- it seemed the official law enforcement channels were often incapable of fighting back against the flood of crime. Until, that is, a new organization came out of the shadows -- unaccountable to authorities, unstoppable, and brutal. Today's question: What is La Sombra Negra? They don’t want you to read our book.

    CLASSIC: Did Sheldon Gosline Discover a Lost Civilization?

    CLASSIC: Did Sheldon Gosline Discover a Lost Civilization?

    For centuries self-assured academics believed Troy was a mythological city -- until, that is, the ruins were discovered. Over the span of history, the human species has lost people, cities and entire civilizations. Occasionally, governments don't want these lost empires to be found. So what happens when a controversial linguist claims to discover an ancient people spanning Iran to Southern China? They don’t want you to read our book. They don’t want you to see us on tour.

    Havana Syndrome Update, with Jack O'Brien

    Havana Syndrome Update, with Jack O'Brien

    The story began, officially, in 2017 -- multiple US government employees stationed abroad began reporting eerily similar symptoms, ranging from mild discomfort to intense headaches and debilitating ringing in the ears. Soon this became known as "Havana Syndrome." So what, exactly, is it? This question has fascinated Ben, Matt and Noel almost as much as today's special guest, Jack O'Brien. In today's episode, the guys team up to separate fact from fiction in this strange, ongoing saga. (Bonus: We quiz Jack on conspiracies at the end). They don’t want you to read our book.

Mighty Have Sold Out

These guys are cool, smart and funny. They put on a good show and once upon a time I would have given them a five, no question, but they have become overrun by ad time and it’s freaking annoying. You guys are better than this.

Gets worse over time

This is too conspiracy laden. They do have some really awesome episodes but they also speculate excessively. For example l, in the Havana Episode update they attribute the lack of explanation for a weapon as a psychological disorder where the victims are possibly just causing this to themselves. Honestly, a terrible show in the past two years

This is a fun, interesting and yet grounded podcast about all sorts of crazy conspiracies and bizarre stories. The hosts do their best to remain objective and present details so listeners can judge for themselves.
