Episode 36: The Bermuda Triangle
Have you ever heard of the Bermuda Triangle? If you have, it's hard not to have also heard some of the strange theories as to why this area within the Atlantic Ocean has claimed so many ships and airplanes over the years. Could it be aliens? A rift in both space and time? The remnants of the lost city of Atlantis? Or is there a possibly a less exciting, but more scientifically plausible answer? We'll discuss all of this and more on this special double sized episode of Unspookable.

We're taking a walk through the land of slumber to discuss The Sandman and all things sleep on this episode of Unspookable.
Episode 34: Siren Head
Some urban legends are so unique that our brains want them to be true. That is certainly the case with Trevor Henderson's 2018 creation of a cryptid that has captured our imaginations and infiltrated such games as Minecraft and Roblox. What makes this creature so scary, yet so appealing? We're talking all things Siren Head on this episode of Unspookable.
Episode 33: Polybius: The Phantom Video Game
Video games have become a big part of our lives. They exercise our motor skills and problem solving abilities, help us build community and relationships, and more than anything...they're just fun! But did you know that in the early days of gaming technology many people actually feared video games and the arcades that housed them? There were rumors of mind control, injury, and even disappearances surrounding one game in particular...Polybius. We look into this mysterious arcade game's history and the conspiracies it birthed on this episode of Unspookable.
Episode 32: Loch Ness Monster
There are many tales of monsters throughout history - stories that come and go. But, in the Scottish Highlands, there is a legend of a creature whose first recorded sighting in the sixth century A.D. has only grown larger and gained more interest as the years go by. When we asked our listeners what stories we should tell this season, the single most requested tale was that of... the Loch Ness Monster. Prepare to hear about the origins, hoaxes, and possible explanations for everyone's favorite cryptid on this episode of Unspookable.

If you've ever heard of the New Jersey Pine Barrens ,these are exactly the kinds of stories that have been told locally for generations. Prepare to question local folklore with us today as we talk about The Jersey Devil on this episode of Unspookable.

Introducing: Of Fae & Fiends
This week, Unspookable is excited to share the first episode of Of Fae & Fiends. New episodes released weekly starting March 23, 2021. You can find Of Fae & Fiends wherever you get podcasts. Lizzie (10) returns to her ancestral home in Maine to make an amazing discovery: the woods behind the farmhouse contain a doorway to the mystical realm of Faerie. But a dark storm looms over the horizon of Fae: Lizzie’s Great-Uncle Carlow has enlisted a goblin army to conquer the World Tree, and has set his sights set on our world after… All that stands in Carlow’s way is Lizzie and her unlikely friends: Kyle, a talking goat, and Garrett, a swashbuckling weasel. Written and produced by audio drama pioneer Fred Greenhalgh, OF FAE & FIENDS is a Faerie Tale with teeth - a place where monsters sometimes eat children, but the courageous can fight back. This lavishly produced modern faerie tale features 30+ actors, cinematic sound design, and an original orchestral score. For families and kids at heart, ages 7 – 177.
Episode 30: Aliens Part 2
Have you ever heard of Area 51? What about Roswell, New Mexico? What if the supposed alien-related events and conspiracies surrounding these two locations were actually true? As we close out our time looking at the existence of aliens, it's time to look at what we believe versus what we want to believe - all of that on the season finale of Unspookable.
Episode 29: Aliens Part 1
Think about the last time you saw an alien. Was it in a book? Watching a movie? What did it look like? Now, it’s impossible to say exactly when the idea of aliens first occurred to humans on Earth and even more impossible to trace exactly how we conjured up the little green humanoid creatures with big eyes that you're most likely imagining, but today we're going to try and do just that. We’ll be talking about all things extra-terrestrial on this special two-part episode of Unspookable.
Episode 28: Ghost Ships
You see a crew-less vessel approaching through the fog on a moonless night at sea.. can you trust that your eyes were telling you the truth? Is there really a ship sailing with no one aboard? We've talked about the creatures that lurk in the ocean's depths, but what about the traces of the humans that have crossed those same waters? We'll look at these questions and the legend of Ghost Ships on this episode of Unspookable.
