Area 51 and The Death of Paul McCartney | Episode 09
In episode 9 of Dead Air, made for you fresh outta the new weird quarantine life, we have some escapism in some DIFFERENT weird stuff for you. You might feel we're living in another world, but Bethan explores the mystery surrounding Area 51,  its possible inhabitants from other worlds, what happens there, and an inside take from Bob Lazar on his experiences working there. If you're worried about Paul McCartney's vulnerable status during the pandemic; don't, because he's already maybe dead, as Portia explores the conspiracy surrounding his alleged death, his ex-wife's box of "evidence" and the lyrics that contain the clues.

Dead Airnniversary! | Episode 08
Well guys, looks like we made it. An actual year of semi-regular content! To celebrate, we've dug up some true and/or cursed movies which we may or may not have seen in the most epic game of Pong you've ever witnessed*. We cover Groundskeeper Willie's back catalog and Bethan adds another six movies to her list of movies-she's-not-seen-but-probably-should've. Thank you as always for listening, and we are especially sorry for blowing out your eardrums with Bethan's horrific cough. *a bold claim, but seriously, how interesting are Pong games anyway?

Dissociative Identity Disorder | Episode 07
On this episode of Dead Air we take a step away from the weird and the creepy to talk to Jess about her experiences with Dissociative Identity Disorder, a condition born out of trauma where an individual is living with multiple personalities in one body. Jess is on YouTube as Multiplicity and Me, where she talks about living with DID and fighting the stigma associated with it. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8JDIEFbQejP-meo1OwI0DA Our audio got a bit screwy as Jess told us about her new project called Headspace; a 360 video with her and actors playing her alternate identities, recreating their interactions in Jess's mind. Find it on her YouTube channel!
