I've got that Somerton, Somerton Sadness!

Hi weirdos!

Welcome to YET ANOTHER Unsolved Mystery!  These are some of our favorite episodes and FOR GOOD REASON because jeez oh man these cases just keep getting weirder and weirder.

Last week we discussed the Voynich Manuscript and you'll get a little bonus Voynich theory at the beginning of this episode.  This week Lauren is bringing us one of our all time favorite mysteries; the case of the Somerton Man (aka Tamam Shud.)

Picture this... a guy found dead on the beach in 1948.  No ID. No apparent cause of death.  And in his pocket is a strange note that just says "Tamam Shud."

And now imagine... that this is the LEAST CRAZY THING ABOUT THIS CASE!! 

Join us as Lauren takes us through the days of the investigation, the theories as to what may have went down, and even some RECENT UPDATES in one of the strangest mysteries in history.

Join us next week for our final mystery... which is... ALSO a mystery.  Follow us on social media @keepitweirdcast to get clues to our next episode!

Uh oh, weirdos.

It's time to solve a mystery.  Solve a mystery from history. A historical mystorical.

Ashley and Lauren were joined by comedian and writer Hanna Bowens for another edition of UNSOLVED MYSTERIES!! We had so much information on each of our stories that one recording session turned into THREE EPISODES!! That's right, prepare to scratch your noggins because you've got three weeks of conundrums.

This week Ashley is bringing you an hours worth of notes on the VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT!  This 600+ year old book is written in an unknown language and no one knows who wrote it.  After carbon dating, protein testing, and the scouring of historical documents; the more we learn about the manuscript the more confusing it becomes.

Head over to our Facebook page to see all of the artworks we reference towards the end of the episode.

If you or anyone you know has any information on Mr. Voynich and his prized manuscript... call the number on your screen now.

Hi Weirdos!! 

Welcome to another edition of LISTENER GHOST STORIES!  The spookiest episodes in town!

Listener Ghost Stories/Strange Tales/Real Life Spooky Stories are the episodes in which Lauren and Ashley read real life stories SENT IN BY YOU! 

This week we run the gamut of emotions; we get scared, our hearts swell up, we get nervous, and yes... we even cry.

From the grandpas we miss dearly to the intruders in our homes.  From the most unique place to see a ghost to the places that make you say "Duh, this place is obvi haunted." From the soldiers in Vietnam to truckers on the highway; this episode truly has it all.

So tuck those toesies under the blanket so the monster can't chew them off and prepare to get scared.

 

WARNING: Listener Ghost Stories episodes include sound effects and music.  Sometimes they can be jarring.

Welcome Weirdos, one and all!

This is PART TWO of our Personality Disorder episode!  Ashley and Lauren are joined once again by stand-up comedian Justin Foster to chat about mental health disorders!

Last week Ashley taught us about Schizotypal and Paranoid Personality Disorder and this week Justin is teaching us all about Antisocial Personality Disorder AKA SOCIOPATHS!  Sociopaths are incredibly fascinating for many reasons; one of which is their association to a large number of famous serial killers.

Lauren is discussing the very controversial topic of Dissociative Personality Disorder AKA MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES!  We ask all the important questions: What causes it? Where do these personalities come from?  Where does the host go?  Can you treat it? And even: Does it exist?

In this episode we talk about some very sensitive disorders, discuss brutal and disturbing cases, and try to show you the ways in which people with severe personality disorders can still live a very fulfilling and "normal" life.  

But remember, weirdos.  Theres no such thing as normal...
