Episode 115: The Dancing Plague

During July of 1518 a Mrs. Troffea inexplicable broke out dancing and was unable to stop. Over the course of a month up to 400 people joined her on the streets, seemingly against their wishes. The dancers suffered bouts of heart attacks, strokes and exhaustion and many of them didn’t live to see the end of the jig.

So why did this dancing mania that effected hundreds in Strasbourg occur? Why did it end?

Episode 114: The Fucked Up Chronicles: Part Three

This week we have a good old rant about the sexual predators that seem to have been trolling around Hollywood with ease for decades. It should also be noted that this episode was recorded over a week ago which isn’t normally an issue but so much has been revealed since! So, if we didn’t mention you it’s not because we’re cool with what you did, it’s just because we didn’t know.

Episode 113: The Curious Case Of The Ourang Medan

Halloween is approaching so in this episode we’re discussing a possible ghost ship which possibly had a dutch crew, a crew that possibly died a gruesome death. It also possibly sank as witnessed by the crew of another ship who are possibly dead as well.

We also discuss Weinstein occasionally. Yep, this episode will make your skin crawl.

Episode 111: The Demise Of Christopher Marlowe

Christopher Marlowe, also known as Kit, was a playwright and poet that lived in the Elizabethan era. Born in 1564 Marlowe lived till the ripe old age of… 29. He is said to have been killed accidentally by an acquaintance but there are some doubts about his official cause of death among historians (and us). Was it an assassination ordered by the Privy Council and/or the queen? Was it the result of the actions of a jealous wife? Did he actually die or did he fake his death?

Did Matt do it? It’s as likely as some of the other theories.

110: The Battle Of The Podcasters!

Last week tempers flared due to some disparaging remarks against Game of Thrones, disparaging remarks that were incorrect. In an effort to try and curb these insultingly wrong feelings towards the show we decided to discuss it further this episode. Until we got distracted and talked about other things and stuff.

Episode 109: The Confessions Of Thomas Quick

Sture Ragnar Bergwell, more commonly known as Thomas Quick, gained the reputation of being one of the most prolific serial killers to haunt Sweden and its surrounding countries. He became infamous in the early 90s following a string of confessions which led to conviction. There was just one problem, there was no evidence he killed anyone.

Episode 108: Who Was The Wild Boy Of Aveyron?

The Wild Boy of Aveyron, also known as Victor Of Aveyron, was a feral child that lived in France in the 1700s-1800s. People made the assumption that he’d lived in the wild for most of his life due to his awkward diet and scarring on his body but how and why would a child be left to fend for themselves in the woods? Could he ever recover? Is this tale even true?

Episode 107: Poor Karla Homolka

In the early 1990s Karla Homolka became the victim of a miscarriage of justice in Canada. She’d somehow been suckered into committing multiple rapes and murders with her husband, Paul Bernardo, and shockingly people expected her to pay for the crimes. She was sentenced to 12 years in prison for her part in the crimes (far too long) but fortunately is able to lead a relatively normal life following her release. Good.

There’s a lot of sarcasm in this description.
