  • Ahhhh I went to E3 last year and we stayed pretty damn close to that hotel….soooo creepy, that video freaked me out haha  great episode guys!

  • I’ve heard about some odd finding during psychic investigations around that entire area. There’s also some really interesting story about the sewers near their too.

  • Totally noticed a Toynbee tile in downtown Baltimore a few months ago while walking to work.  Like most of the others, it was built into the road.

  • I’ve only listened to the first episode so far, but despite a complete disbelief in ghosts, I actually got chills running down my arms twice listening to the waking dreams and/or ghost encounters told on that one. It’s about time someone had a podcast focused on the “weird” stuff.

  • I don’t believe in the supernatural, aliens (at least the ones everyone hears about), etc.. But i’m enjoying listening to this episode. This is my first episode but they’re fun to listen to. I enjoy going into these types of things and the psychology of the human brain. They’re fun to think about, and thank you guys for not going into these conspiracy theories like many other out there. 

  • I really dig this podcast you guys :) 
    I mean, it’s always interesting and fun to hear about conspiracy theories, but it’s considerably less fun when the people talking about it AREN’T remotely critical of it. Like on Ancient Aliens, where those crazies just automatically assume theories as truth. 
    You guys do it right, though. This is really entertaining and fascinating to listen to. Jess, the thing at the end about Kynmaerica was the perfect example of just talking about, and enjoying, all the weirdness.
    Keep this podcast coming!
