The Vaile Mansion was once the most opulent home in all of America, and the Bingham-waggoner Estate was once the Trail Head Marker for the Santa Fe Trail, part of the famed Oregon Trail. Both Estates are teaming with paranormal activity but who is haunting these prize homes?

There's a conspiratorial twist on an old playground legend. Is the cryonically frozen body (or head) of Walt Disney really being kept underneath Disneyland? Where did this rumor even start? And how do modern Disney movies fit into it all?
Aislinn and Miranda are back at it again as Aislinn thinly veils an attempt at incorporating her film degree into the podcast. If you're into learning about Disney history, getting a healthy dose of morbidity, or being pulled into spontaneous film critiques, then this is an episode you don't want to miss. Or if you just want to hear some reasons to not freeze your head when you die, that's somewhere in here, too.

Aislinn and Miranda had a busy weekend with their team going to the Superbowl! While watching said game, however, a few things didn't add up. What was so weird about the game? Why were there so many calls on one team? And how much research can our two hosts get away with not doing?
Join us for a fun, off the cuff episode where we wildly speculate about life, Kansas City, and possible causes of the apocalypse.

The St. Augustine Lighthouse located in a town by the same name is one of the most haunted places on earth according to visitors.

The long awaited second part in our Scientology coverage is here! Join us as we go in-depth with Scientology. Here Aislinn tells Miranda about the religions practices, organizations, and controversies. Why are so many celebrities part of it? How did it become so secretive? And what the heck is an E-meter? The episode may be a bit late, but it is well worth the listen.
There's too many sources to link here. Instead, here's Aislinn's Google Doc of notes:

Here we have another topic that was too big for one episode! Aislinn wants to tell Miranda about Scientology, but she first has to talk about its founder: L. Ron Hubbard.
Why did a pulp fiction writer manage to create a new religion? What qualified him to pioneer a new realm of psychology? And how much science is really in Scientology?
Featuring: the blending of sci-fi and reality, bizarre naval misadventures, temporary bigamy, and even a message from Aleister Crowley himself
And we haven't even gotten to the cult* stuff yet.

In this episode, Aislinn forces Miranda to endure more Cold War history as they delve into The Great Bird Conspiracy. What is this odd conspiracy? Who started it? Why has it spread? And perhaps most importantly: How does Waffle House factor into all of this?
Maybe we should all be a bit more wary of those eyes in the sky.

This Tuesday, Aislinn does a deep dive into the biggest conspiracy theory of the past decade. While she and Miranda both agree that the entire basis of QAnon is absurd, that hasn't stopped it from altering our world.

Well, Miranda is properly horrified at any rate.
Aislinn revisits Nero Caesar and his potential connection to the book of Revelation, written long after his time. Was the Beast of the Sea that John wrote about modeled after the notorious Roman Emperor? Or could the similarities between the man and the prophecy be just a coincidence?

The HAARP research facility in Alaska has performed some of the most informative research we have regarding the Earth's ionosphere. Of course, with innovation comes conspiracy theories. Did the US military construct it to try and weaponize our atmosphere? Have they found a way to control our weather? Or are they seeking to flip the Earth's magnetic poles?
Aislinn brings the science, so you don't have to worry if you're not entirely sure what the ionosphere is. Miranda, as always, brings the sarcastic comments, so you'll also have a lot of laughs.
It's an extra informative (and fascinating!) episode as we look into the incredible feats of the HAARP.

This is Part 2 of 2. Regarding our Ted Bundy series. Ted Bundy was a messed up individual and should not be glorified in any way shape or form. He murdered 30 confirmed women throughout the 1970's and showed no remorse. He was truly “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” as they say.
In this episode, Aislinn regales Miranda with details of the mysterious Bohemian Grove, a secretive playground to many incredibly powerful politicians, businessmen, and artists.
What happens during their annual two week long encampment? Aislinn thinks it's basically a weird frat party in the woods. Miranda's convinced that they probably hunt men for sport. Since membership is for excessively wealthy or talented males only, it's not like either host will ever know for sure. The information they do have about the camp, however, is really bizarre.

This week Miranda is covering one of America's most notorious Serial Killers, Ted Bundy. Ted Bundy killed 30 Women across the United States, a possible many more that we do not know about. We personally think Ted Bundy is a slimy little worm of a person, and we would like to point out the purpose of this special 2 Part series on this heinous monster is not to glorify him, but instead to bring light to the names of many of his victims.
Uriah Spray Epperson and his wife Mary Epperson were two of the most influential people to the early artist scene in Kansas City, helping shape it into what it is today. There home was grand and more grand than the home it'self is the stories that reside within it's walls. Screams in the night, Playerless Organ Music, Visions of a Lady in White, and even a Blue Suited Arm lending a hand in turning out the lights. This is an exciting episode full of rich history about one of Kansas City Missouri's most influential families.
In this episode, Aislinn offers up a serving of Ancient Greek history, philosophy, and, most importantly, math. Miranda is less than thrilled with that last bit.
Also there's some stuff about a cult and a murder.

During the Cold War, the Canadian government had to contend with the possibility of Soviet spies. In an attempt to negate all liabilities, however, they implemented extremely discriminatory practices against the LGBT population. What followed was an era of fear, government surveillance, and very... questionable science.

In the 1950s through to the 70s, America's CIA conducted countless studies on unwitting citizens in an attempt to find methods of mind control to use against their Soviet enemies. Sounds like a crazy conspiracy, right?
Except that it's all true, and the scope of it is bigger than most people realize.
Join us as we delve into the intricacies of this project and the CIA's mission for mind control techniques. What was it really? Who was behind it? How could the government allow this? And is it really as bad as it sounds?

Ireland is a beautiful country with some pretty amazing and vast history behind it, but when your country is as old as this one you are bound to have some spirits lingering from a time long past. In Kilkenny Ireland there are so many things to do and learn about, two of which being The Ghost River, and the infamous Foulksrath Castle. Are these the spirits of residents of yore, or maybe of unfortunate prisoners behind its great walls.

Kansas City Missouri is home to some of the best people on the planet... Like Us! Your friendly podcast hosts! However, Kansas City has also been home to some of the most despicable monsters. In this episode we delve into the horrific crimes of Robert Berdella Jr.. His crimes are heinous and hard to swallow. Imagining such a monster living under everyone's noses in the 1980's.... But, let us ask you... what would you do "for the sake of art"?
What happens to the nation when the President has a stroke? Historically, the answer is more complicated than you'd think. In this episode, we explore what America was like under President Woodrow Wilson including his life before, during, and after WWI. We also take care to tackle his controversies as well.
Perhaps most importantly, however, we also discuss the role of Edith Wilson in all of this, and how she rose to the challenge when her country needed her the most.

In 1975, an outbreak of arthritis-like symptoms started afflicting the people of Lyme, Connecticut, including the youth. In 1881, a bacterium in ticks was discovered to be the culprit behind the condition now called Lyme Disease. Finding that one answer led to numerous questions.
