Episode 94: Ice Breaker - A Titanic Conspiracy

AND WE’RE BACK! I'll Tell You What... It's been a REALLY long time since we posted an episode! We are so sorry that our lives have been kinda crazy lately & we haven't been able to post in a while. With that in mind we would like you let you all know that posting will probably stay a bit inconsistent for the time being, both Aislinn & Miranda have full-time jobs & lots of other obligations on the side. The podcast is a priority to us, but we be tired folks. We are super excited to get back to it! In this episode, Aislinn talks about the Titanic and the details around its demise. Did the Unsinkable Ship actually hit that iceberg accidentally? Or could it have been insurance fraud gone horribly wrong? Join us as we take a deep dive into one of history’s most tragic events. Notes for this episode can be found here:

Bonus: Wild Speculation feat. The Superbowl

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.

Episode 54 - The Birds Work For The Bourgeoisie

"“All of the birds died in 1986 due to Reagan killing them and replacing them with spies that are now watching us. The birds work for the bourgeoisie.”

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.

Episode 42: The OG Antichrist

Romans and Revelations and Locusts, oh my! 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? If you're at all interested in learning about the Roman Empire around the time of Nero or about what the Bible's Revelation actually talks about, you won't want to miss this episode.

Episode 34: The Secrets of Bohemian Grove

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.  Listen in our discussion about the secrets of Bohemian Grove, owned by the elite Bohemian Club.

Episode 26: The Georgia Guidestones

In the southern town of Eberton, Georgia, there stands a large Stonehenge-like monument etched with guidelines for a post-apocalyptic world. No one knows the true identity of who built them, or why the structure was made the way it was.
Were the Guidestones commissioned by the New World Order? Why were the plans destroyed after construction? And why was the monument made in the first place?

Episode 14: The Case of the Multiplying Mattress Firms

Before the days of online retailers, there were mattress stores. A lot of them. Right across the street from each other. Often empty.  Usually owned by the same company.

Why were there so many Mattress Firms? Why were they so close to one another? Could the stores be a front for an illicit money laundering scheme? 

Was it just a weird marketing strategy, or was there something more sinister behind it?

Muted - #PodcastBlackout

Muted. This week instead of posting a typical episode of I'll Tell You What... we have joined other podcasts in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. #amplifymelanatedvoices We were inspired by And That's Why We Drink, who are also participating in this. In this podcast we will be reading out the names of black people slain by police violence or victims of hate crimes. We encourage, and hope you join us in listening, reflecting, acting, and donating in solidarity with the Black community.

The Elms Hotel & Spa located in Excelsior Springs Missouri.  We spent most of our adolescent summers at Lake Maurer, just down the road from the famed hotel. This Hotel is know for its ghostly patrons, but where did these other-worldly visitors come from, and what do people experience at their hands?
