This week on the Skeptical Skeptics Podcast, RJ looks at a bunch of creatures we know and love today… that started off as cryptids. Rachel looks at an urban legend that has taken on a life of its own, despite an inability to prove any of the originating story having even happened.
This week on Skeptical Skeptics, Rachel looks at an abduction that occurred while two, not intoxicated people, went fishing. The shocking part of that story is not that the abduction took place, but that the fishermen were not intoxicated… Astounding. RJ looks into precognition. After reading this description, sleep on it and see if you know which stories he’ll be talking about!
This week on the Skeptical Skeptics Podcast we’re looking at mermaids. Old tales, new tales, fish tails. Check our social media accounts for various links to stories mentioned. Also, we’re going to discuss a story shared with us from a listener’s personal encounter.
This week, the show is structured a little differently… Were we programmed by others to do this show? No, it was just a fun thing to do. We’ll have regular programming on Wednesday at midnight!
This week we sound a little different. Happy April Fool’s Day! Check out Massive Late Fee @MassiveLateFee everywhere we are or on michigansportsandentertainment.com
Note: If you’re a new listener, this is a special episode and is longer and more in depth than normal. So, if that’s not your style, go back an episode. If that is your style, check out our Area 51 special and let us know which subject you’d like some more in-depth analysis!
This week we dive into the well known and not so well known conspiracy theories behind JFK’s assassination. Warning, the content is historically heavy from the audio clip at 6:30 to 14:14. We spent some time setting up the official timeline and story because I knew we’d reference it with every theory. So, if you’re already a JFK buff and would like to just skip to the fun theories, go to 14:14.
This week Rachel talks about the Battle of Los Angeles which was a famous(?) battle against the Japanese, or Aliens, or Balloons, or Blimps, or all of the above. Either way, something (or nothing) got shot at… A lot. RJ presents the case of Gil Perez, The Transported Soldier from 1593. Forget mermaids and whatever other crap they were believing in back then, this case has some evidence. Or does it?
This week we look at a bunch of science experiments that probably shouldn’t have happened. Or, at least, shouldn’t be repeated; like the Milgram Shock Experiment. Between those, the Stanford Prison Experiment, mind control of bulls, and many other experiments. We don’t have to believe the supernatural to get our fix of weird. Speaking of weird… Rachel’s story features a couple of incredibly strange dueling magicians turned vampire hunters… It’s not as cool as it sounds.
