In this three-part episode our hosts, Cayla, Nathan, Halli and Courtney take a look at four cases of intrigue:

  • The Bielefeld Conspiracy: In 1994 a post would appear on a German Usenet site claiming the German city of Bielefeld didn't actually exist, that the whole thing was a conspiracy. So does Bielefeld exist?
  • Aokigahara Forest: Also known as the Sea of Trees is an infamous forest in Japan, not just for its stunning beauty and miles of impenetrable vegetation, but for the alarming rates of suicide that happen there every year.
  • History of Nails: Humans have been decorating their fingernails far as back as we can remember, but while today this is considered a frivolous, feminine form of expression, its histories have roots in war and symbolism of leadership
  • Jack Parsons: Jack Parsons is a nebulous person, known both for his great scientific ventures and for his occult pursuits and friendships with LRH and Aleister Crowley
