Ep. 24: Rubber Chicken Slinky: D.B. Cooper
Who was the mystery man who jumped out of a plane in 1971? A spy? A superhero? An idiot? Join us as Emma tells Shannon the story of D.B. Cooper, get sidetracked by thought experiments and fanny packs, and try our hardest to keep this 2 hour long episode entertaining (sorry it's so long ya'll! Leave us a review or leave us alone!). Stay at the end for a bonus ten minutes of National Treasure Talk!
Ep. 23: Pale and Frail: The Kennedy Curse
Join us this week from another one of Emma's family closets as Shannon regales us with the story of Camelot. Well, the Kennedy Camelot, all its twists and turns and the curse that hangs over them all. Is it really a curse, a testosterone-fueled urge to take risks, or just a whole lot of bad luck from a whole lot of gold coins? Come find out!
Ep. 22: A Crop Circle of Virgin Mary's: Annabelle the Doll
A demon? A ghost? A prank gone wrong? Whatever the reason, this doll is creepy as all get out, so much so that it has to be kept locked away in a glass case like a Marvel villian. Listen as Emma freaks Shannon out with another scary doll mystery, but only cries like once!
Ep. 21: Jean-Paul Joe Schmoe: Amelia Earhart
This week Shannon scares Emma with planes and gigantic crabs in retaliation for all the times Emma has made her cry to tell the incredible story of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan, who disappeared in the Pacific in the 30s. Were they stranded and eventually eaten by crabs? (ew. no thank you.) Were they captured? Sucked up into space? Come listen to our theories and all of our shoutouts to Tom King, archeologist extraordinare!
Ep. 20: Batpig: The Mothman
A creature born of radioactivity scared the bejesus out of two couples in 1966 on a dark road at midnight. Or was it a gigantic bird? Or Batpig? More likely it was the antihero of Point Pleasant: Mothman! Come listen to Emma tell Shannon about the feathered man bird and all of his "cousins" around the world.
Ep. 19: Woo! Politics: El Dorado
Now we would love to all find a city of gold, but could we actually succeed? And why do we even think there is one in the first place? Come listen as Shannon tells Emma all about El Dorado, both the maybe mythical place and the 2000 movie (Elton's greatest work) that everyone should be in love with.
Ep. 18: A Dingo Ate My Body!: The Tamam Shud Case
Emma gets real lazy this week and retells Shannon one of her favorite mysteries: The Tamam Shud Case. Luckily, Shannon remembers none of it! Was this man a Soviet spy? Or a British seaman? No one knows, but maybe we figure it out!
