ISO 107: We're Doooooooooomed!

The first half of this episode is a very decent discussion about earthquakes and the science behind them. However, the second part goes into a speculative look at what may happen during a planetary alignment in the near-future. Spoiler alert: Nothing happened.

ISO 106: BEEEEEES!!!

This is possibly one of the most scientifically accurate episode in the show's six season run. Killer bees are actually a thing and the show actually discusses them honestly and truthfully and they have a bona fide expert to discuss them. There's not a whole lot of snark, but we try.

ISO 105: Bigfeet? Bigfoots?

This week is the first of five episodes looking at the topic of Cryptozoology and one of the best known myths, Bigfoot. We meet an anthropologist who threw a successful career away to chase after this critter. We also find out that hygiene is not at the top of Bigfoot's list of priorities.

ISO 104: Creepy Voice Guy

We finally come to a topic that people are really familiar with. The Bermuda Triangle is pretty much a non-mystery anymore. Instead of trying to explain the science of the former mysteries, the show decides to look at a few anecdotal stories from people of questionable credentials. We also hear from a creepy caller to a Florida radio station (because of course it's Florida).


Want to know more about the Bermuda Triangle? Just search YouTube, there are plenty of conspiracy nut videos out there.

Episode 22: Gene Ray and Time Cube

Brent the Closet Geek joins me to talk about a bizarre, early internet conspiracy known as Time Cube. It was introduced to the internet by Gene Ray, but he was apparently handing out pamphlets around town prior to that. It has endured the test of time and continues to be referenced on Reddit.
