Ep. 13 - The Fresno Nightcrawlers
In 2007, an unsuspecting homeowner caught something utterly terrifying on his home security footage. Two eerie, stick figure like cryptids, walking across his lawn at 1 in the morning; coming and going without a trace. What could these creatures possibly be, how can they be explained? Luckily, I personally take this opportunity to offer some new, exciting research to add evidence to this case in an effort to unveil, the Fresno Nightcrawlers.

Ep. 12 - The Lead Masks Case
Quite possibly the strangest crime scene ever. In 1966 upon a hillside in Rio de Janeiro, two men were found dead in full suits, wearing mysterious lead masks for which the case got its name. As it turns out, there was much going on behind the scenes; communication with Mars, attempted portals to the spirit world, and least of all, an ever-lasting mark in Brazilian history.

Ep. 11 - The Immortal Buddhist Monk
Is it a miracle?! In 1927, Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov died while in deep meditation and was buried by his fellow Buddhist monks. 75 years later, his body was excavated from the ground to reveal that Itigilov's body had barely decayed at all. His body is so well preserved in fact that many claim he isn't even really dead. Listen in on the details around this story and see if either science or spirituality can explain how its possible.

In the late 1800's an infamous, supposedly cursed, ghost ship sailed the 7 seas, claiming lives and possibly souls in its path. The tragic true history of the Mary Celeste cannot be overlooked or dismissed, and in fact must be investigated to discover if it was all just a coincidence, or perhaps there really were evil and mysterious forces at play.

Ep. 8 - The Lost Colony of Roanoke
In the late 1500's, 115 of the first English colonists in North America vanished off the face of the Earth. They had been settling an island off the coast of North Carolina called Roanoke Island, but when Englishmen returned to offer more supplies for the colonists, they discovered that everyone was gone. Leaving behind only a few cryptic clues to generate wild theories, the modern world still has no idea what happened to these lost settlers.

Ep. 7 - Freemason Society
Thousands of years ago, a secret society was formed by powerful and influential men that called themselves, Freemasons.  Throughout history, the hidden knowledge that the Freemasons posses has brought on a plethora of conspiracies and speculations. What could they really be up to? What is their hidden agenda? Even if there is  no grand conspiracy, one cannot ignore the pure amount of power Freemason members have had in the world. If there really are plans for a new world order, the one thing we can't say is that there weren't any signs...

Ep. 2 - Bob Lazar
Bob Lazar is infamously known as an ex-Area 51 employee who, in 1989, came to the public with never before heard information about secret government research on extraterrestrial flying saucers. With every convincing reason to believe him, there is an equally convincing reason to question his claims. Even still, he remains as one of humanities greatest indications that life exists beyond Earth.
