After releasing the episode about the Kecksburg incident I had so many listeners reach out over email or social media and ask me to feature more weird stories like that one. I know some of you love true crime and they’re your favorite episodes, other people prefer more history or hauntings, but the response to overall weirdness has been much bigger than I anticipated. Many of you have asked for more – more episodes about weird shit.
With that in mind I thought I’d release a small bonus episode. This story is actually a Patreon episode I released in July called Real Life vs. Movie – the Philadelphia Experiment.
Depending on with whom you speak, the Philadelphia experiment never happened. Conspiracy theorists claim on October 28, 1943, a ship in the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard disappeared, only to reappear in Virginia, hover for a few seconds before returning to Philly.
Did the navy create a Tardis? Did they shatter the confines of science and discover a way to render a ship invisible while sending it through time, and space? Listen and find out, but whatever you do, don’t watch the 1984 movie about the Philadelphia experiment. It’s a complete bag of shit.
