The Franklin Coverup Part Three (Bohemian Grove)
This is the last of our only ever four part series (and third of just the Franklin Coverup) and it took a little bit out of us. The story is so gross that it gave two of the Fell Companions the 'rona! But that is all behind us now. We don't have to listen to the disgusting finale of this tale of child sex slavery and the privilege of power. You do! So we hope you enjoy it. It's extra long!

The Franklin Coverup Part Two
This story is just too horrible to fill just one episode, so here we go with part two of the lurid tale of child sex rings, corruption, and a justice system that (maybe) doesn't work right. Oh, and I guess we should mention that some of the Grackles have Covid so we will be back with the next installment as fast as we can!

This week, Strangeful Things will regale you with the story of the New Orleans Axe Man! No, not the body spray that paired well with Ed Hardy, dad hats and No Fear tees.

Owl Mountains, Poland – The Hunt for Nazi Gold
Between 1943 and 1945, the Nazis dug a giant network of mineshafts, tunnels and caves in the Owl Mountains in southwestern Poland.

But they may have managed to hide a giant cache of stolen treasure in a train car in the mountains before they blew it all up. Our podcast this week explores what we know about the complex, the stuff the Nazi’s stole and the expedition to get that treasure that was undertaken a few years ago. Let’s go get that gold!

Some people would use the power of invisibility to tap people on the shoulder to freak them out or steal pies out of bakeries.

Detroit, MI – The Witch of Delray
“Behind those filmy curtains,” Medina Street mothers told their children when family circles were gathered around the hearths, “stalks a bad witch-woman. Her name is Mrs. Rose Veres. She bewitches factory men, they go to live in her house, and in the cellar the witch-woman brews potions. She has the Evil Eye. When she looks at these men, they have to do when she tells them. They want to go away, but they can’t. She bewitches them. Then they die.” In this week’s episode, Christy takes us to Detroit, Michigan circa 1920s to talk about a story you probably haven’t heard before. The Witch of Delray!

Amelia Earhart – The Real Facts
Amelia Earhart has been in the news again lately due to a 2 hour special recently aired by the History Channel, revolving around a photo purported to show Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, on a dock on Saipan around the time they disappeared. Turns out, the photo was actually published in a Japanese travel book in 1935, two full years before Earhart disappeared. ::sad trombone:: Also, according to The International Group for Historical Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), most of the other evidence in the special was old, previously debunked theories and inaccurate information. ::bigger sad trombone:: Despite all that, we thought this would be an excellent time to go over the facts of the disappearance of Amelia Earhart, her navigator, Fred Noonan and her Lockheed Electra Model 10E. Enjoy! The post Amelia Earhart – The Real Facts appeared first on Strangeful Things.

Rome – An Empire of Monsters
This week we decided to talk about terrible people who lived a long time ago, Ancient Rome to be exact. That sort of makes it easier to deal with, I think. Most people don’t feel bad for victims in olden times because they had all probably just gotten done beating their kids or kicking a cat onto a roof. So listen to the Fell Companions gasp a plenty while we cover the following topics in horrid detail: * Roman government * Types of Roman citizens * The rise of the Emperors * Caligula (ugh) * Claudius (double ugh) * Tiberius (get out) * Commodus (poor footless soldiers) * Sejanus (technically it was all legal) * Nero (I might quit the show) * Locusta! At last a hero! * The big finale – oh, that’s now how I hoped that would end at all. The post Rome – An Empire of Monsters appeared first on Strangeful Things.

Strangeful Things Gameshow – Episode One
This week we take a break from story telling to test the horrific knowledge of your hosts. B Nev, Christy and Jenn square off in a Battle Royale of questions slung at them with gusto by Acadia. Who will win? How many answers will you know? Will there be surprises? The answers to all those questions (and all the game questions) are in the show. And if you want to play along, go for it. Anything you blurt out on the bus totally counts and will be good practice for when we play the game with the fans in Episode 22. No joke. Bone up on your Strangeful Things lore because there WILL be a test! The post Strangeful Things Gameshow – Episode One appeared first on Strangeful Things.
