    186. MYSTERY: Why Did Agatha Vanish?

    186. MYSTERY: Why Did Agatha Vanish?

    Agatha Christie is known as the queen of mystery, thanks to her 66 detective novels, 14 short story collections, and her whodunit play that is the longest running play in theatre history—but in 1926, she was the center of a mystery that played out on the front pages of newspapers rather than her books.

    Our Tuesday episodes are usually shorter than our Friday episodes, focusing on topics we didn’t think we could do a full episode on, and often sent in by you guys!

    184. MYSTERY: Decoding the Basel Papyrus

    The Basel Papyrus has been in the University of Basel’s possession since the 16th century, its contents indecipherable. Once researchers realized how to decode its writing, they were left with what appears to be the journal of a Roman physician, with notes about an interesting illness.

Loveeeee!!!!!

I appreciate the hosts compassion and consideration for all kinds of listeners. The most important thing in a podcast for me is giving a quick warning for the specific types of horribleness, because somethings I need to skip. Also, this podcast has a lot of different stories that I hadnt heard of before!
