Ep. 223 - The Matrix

Are we living in the Matrix? What is reality? Many scientists, philosophers and mathematicians believe in the simulation theory, the idea that everything you see, hear, touch, smell and feel is all just a computer generated simulation of what you think is real life.  In this episode we explore the evidence and try to figure out if everything is real...isn't.  Hear the story of the tech company executive who died mysteriously and her disturbing final words. Hear the stories about glitches in the matrix, the Mandela Effect, and the mathematical evidence that points to us all being part of some massive computer generated illusion.  Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/theconspiratorspodcast YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0_SAREQYopjrr0CNIrrRrQ Sources:  https://www.simulation-argument.com/https://www.scientificamerican.com/ar...https://www.scientificamerican.com/ar... https://www.wired.com/story/living-in...https://www.nytimes.com/2022/01/26/op...https://www.businessinsider.in/

Perhaps it’s not the best-known cryptid, but the Michigan Dogman has crept across the Midwest’s imagination—and embedded itself in the region’s nightmares—largely thanks to a single event in 1987.

No, strangers, it was something even more powerful: a voice drifting out, over the radio waves.  Special Thanks: Alvin WIlliams of Affirmative Murder for his vocal talents!  Hosted, written, and researched by Laurah Norton Additional research by Michael Morrill  Produced by Maura Currie Engineered by Brandon Schexnayder  Sources on our website: https://www.onestrangethingpodcast.com/ Pre-order Laurah’s book, LAY THEM TO REST: https://www.hachettebookgroup.com/titles/laurah-norton/lay-them-to-rest/9780306828805/ Join us on Patreon for early release and ad-free episodes, exclusive stories, and bonus episodes: https://www.patreon.com/OneStrangeThing Find us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/OSTPod Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/onestra

A lot of conspiracy theories can be explained away as simple coincidence, and the way our human minds are designed to seek connections in places where there aren't any. And yet, there are some stories that make you wonder if something more sinister really is going on.

In October 1966 a terrible mining disaster occurred in the Welsh village of Aberfan, killing 116 children and 28 adults. One strange thing that occurred following the disaster were the number of stories that began emerging that several children who were killed along with a number of other adults who should have had no knowledge of the flood, began reporting having psychic premonitions of the disaster before it occurred. This led a British psychiatrist named John Barker to create a premonitions bureau, where he collected stories of psychic visions, in the hope that they could one day use this information to save lives.

Ep. 152 - The Last Train to Paris

Hey everyone! While I’m recuperating I wanted to introduce you to my special guest host for this episode, the amazing Nina Innsted of the Already Gone Podcast! The history books generally state that the inventor of motion pictures would either go to Thomas Edison or the Lumiere brothers. But there's considerable evidence that title should actually go to a lesser known inventor named Louis LePrince, who built his first single-lens motion picture camera years before Edison or the Lumieres. The reason you may never have heard of Louis LePrince though is because before the inventor ever got a chance to publicly demonstrate his remarkable invention, he vanished without a trace from a moving train, along with all his plans.

Throughout the annals of true crime you'll often hear certain murders being described as "The Crime of the Century".

Ep. 115 - The Church of Sacrifice

Throughout the late 19th and early 20th century, the United States was plagued by hundreds of grisly murders, all committed with the same terrifying weapon, an ax. Between 1911 and 1912, a string of ax murders occurred in western Louisiana and eastern Texas that police came to believe were the work of a most unlikely serial killer--an 18 year old girl, who some believe may have been the leader of a deadly voodoo cult, dedicated to committing blood sacrifice with the ax.  Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/theconspiratorspodcast Notes: https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/502014/voodoo-murders-clementine-barnabet-who-claimed-have-killed-35-peoplehttps://www.amazon.com/Dark-Bayou-Infamous-Louisiana-Homicides/dp/1476662959https://www.amazon.com/Man-Train-Solving-Century-Old-Mystery/dp/B071NYFW6K/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=the+man+on+the+train&qid=1574518836&s=books&sr=1-1https://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/ny-justice-story-ax-woman-20190609-qf5yebikjvhj7bok5odmnzoboq-story.html Music: Dexter B
