The Podcast of Mystery Newsletter #1

Hey thanks for sighing up for my new email newsletter! To be totally honest, I’m not really sure how this will work or what I should write. I’m more of a podcaster than a writer. I’m also terrible at marketing. But thanks for taking a chance and supporting the show!

I dropped a new episode on Sunday. My first guest is Thomas Gorence of Paranoid American. A comics publisher focused on conspiracy theory content. I really recommend checking out this cool chick tract inspired comic about MKUltra. Then I start a new segment I’m going to call, “Another Roadside Attraction“ by virtually visiting The Hodag Store in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. We talk about the fearsome beast known as the Hodag.

My next episode (#23) will be all about one of the most mysterious musical groups in history, The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu.

In these emails, I’d also like to share with you some of the strange things I’ve found on the internet. I’m going to try and limit it to three items per email.

First of all, I have a odd video called “How to Start a Turkey Farm Business” that strangely seems to only mention turkeys once.

Next, I’ve got a fascinating video about the history of Morgellons Disease from Lisa Keranen, PhD called, “This Weird, Incurable Disease.” While I find Morgellons to be a interesting topic in general, this talk dips into the strange idea that some psychological problems might be contagious.

And finally, I’ve got one last video. This one is about a new type of robot with a rather odd design. It is probably like nothing you have ever seen and it will probably feel somewhat counterintuitive. “This Unstoppable Robot Could Save Your Life” from Veritasium.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for you this time. Thanks for reading this.
