This week, we go back into the death of Gabby Petito. Unfortunately, this sad story ended in the worst possible way. We got back together to discuss what happened to Brian Laundrie as well as some theories that are out there that are likely not very credible but they’re out there so we wanted to bring them to you.  This is a sad story and one that we felt we had to cover but these stories are hard to discuss. We’ll be back with some (hopefully) happier discussions next week.  thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

This week an old friend joins us to discuss his childhood growing up in a haunted house and how that effected his and his family's life. It's a wild ride, I promise. We also discuss the happenstance that led to us having this guest and Ryan takes the opportunity to reminisce about ghost hunting with our special guest like 16 years ago. We discuss the cemetery that was a central location for them when they were at the height of their paranormal investigations.  Thank you Jordan for coming on the show and sharing with us.  I hope you enjoy the stories and Happy (early) Halloween!! thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

We decided to make a full episode length Movie Corner. Remember that thing we used to do? Well, here's a much longer version (and even Alex gets in on the fun). This week, we discuss our favorite movies. We instead took a meandering little tour of some of our favorite movie, movie styles, directors, and franchises.  Yep, it's That's Strange at our finest - finding new ways to showcase our collective hyperactivity.  thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

This week, we are taking the week off. So, in the spirit of spooky season, here’s a previous episode from last year.  Chad and Ryan sit down to discuss two horrifying real world stories. The Villisca Axe Murders and The Demon House. Both stories will have you on the edge of your seats as we break down everything involved in these tragic and terrifying stories. Ryan also make his addendum to last week’s episode with The Ladies of Strange that he unfortunately missed. Ryan discusses his top three horror movies of all time as well as commenting on some of our picks. If you haven't heard of the two stories we discuss then you are in for a treat as we walk down a dark road filled with terrible crimes, demonic possessions, and hauntings that will keep you up at night. We give our opinions on these two stories as we break down all the aspects involved with both. Don't forget to head over to our new Facebook Group. The community that is growing over there is truly amazing and if you can't get enough of the stories we are talking about, it’s definitely the place for you! We hope you all enjoy this episode but be warned, you won't want to listen to this one in the dark. Until next week, thank you all for the support and let’s keep this momentum moving forward! We appreciate every single one of you! thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie were seemingly a loving couple out on the road to make memories and enjoy their time on Earth. They were young, full of hope and ready to see the world. But, things didn't turn out to be as idyllic as they seemed. Join us as we try to make sense of this senseless death.

This week, we dive into the Son of Sam and his time killing in New York. We also try to figure out if it was a demon or a dog that was telling him what to do? Was it both? As we usually, do we also find some tangents to fall into but we hope you enjoy listening.  Please come find us on the internet and tell us what you think! thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

This week, we cover the Children of God (aka The Family, The Family International, several other ridiculous names). We look into the abyss so you don't have to and this week is no exception. This cult has done some heinous things throughout the years but they somehow are still a group that exists in the world and they continue to acquire new members. How? We honestly don't know. Can you tell us? Click here to read more about them. However, tread lightly. This isn't light Sunday reading. Also, here's some stuff about #freebritney and the Monoliths. thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

We are taking the week off so here's an episode from Season 2 that we particularly liked.  The boys sit down to discuss the Winchester Mystery House. The widow of firearm tycoon William Winchester started construction on this massive and bizarre structure following several tragedies in her life. Her husband passed away from tuberculosis, while her infant daughter passed away from marasmus. Following a visit to a local medium, Sarah Winchester packed up her bags and moved west to California. She acquired a farm house, which she would spend the next thirty eight years adding on to. With several oddities in the construction of add ons to a few ghostly encounters, this topic is ripe for That's Strange. Hop on and listen as we break down everything from how the Winchesters gained their fortune to Ryan's real-life encounter with this incredible structure. While season 2 is coming to a close soon we want you to remember that we are only taking a brief break before beginning production on Season 3. Stay up to date on what we have coming down the line over on our official website. thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

This week, we discuss Dahmer.  This has been a topic we've wanted to cover for a while but it's a dark one. We have talked about Sociopaths before on the show and a lot of the definition for Sociopath is basically a biography of Dahmer.  This episode should not be listened to around children or anyone sensitive to discussions of depraved murder, cannibalism, or rape. thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

The Jules Rimet trophy (given for the World Cup winners from 1930-1970) has a storied past - and not just one of victory and loss. This week, Thomas Costello from Bryant and Me joins Ryan to discuss the history and the strange paths this trophy has taken since it's creation in 1930.  One of Thomas' fantastic article over on Massive Report can be found here.

The tragic story made national news, as the Army arrested twelve of its own members for various crimes committed on deployment to Afghanistan. Five of those soldiers were arrested with serious charges including but not limited to premeditated murder. How could this all have happened? Come with us as we break down all the small details of the crimes they were accused of committing. Most stories that come out of the Central Asian country involve patriotism, heroics, and the sheer will of the men and women sent on deployment, but this story is a beast all its own. In the end this is a story about the crimes committed by the platoon and the leadership that fanned the flames. Don’t forget to head over to That’s Strange to keep up to date on all future content.

Hello, everyone! We decided to take a week off but we didn’t want to miss out on posting an episode this week so we decided to bring back one of our favorite episodes from season one. We hope you enjoy listening for the first time or maybe a second time and we will see you back with a new episode next week.  Bob Lazar, UFOs and Aliens! In this week’s episode of That’s Strange, we will uncover Bob Lazar’s controversial account of being a physicist at a top secret research facility, known as “S4”.  We will dive deep into this rabbit hole of alien technologies, and the man who worked on them.   thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

This week, we take a deeper look into The Cecil Hotel. Yes, we covered this briefly on our Top 10 Hauntings Episode (found here). BUT, that was a top 10 so we didn't spend a lot of time on it. We wanted to take a deeper look at it (it's fascinating, right?)  I mean... we didn't even talk about Richard Ramirez (The Night Stalker) or Elizabeth Short last time!! How did we miss that!?! So, we all did some more research and decided to talk about more of the details. We hope you enjoy it - we know we loved learning more about this fascinating story.  And of course, we had to discuss Elisa Lam again. Another fascinating story. Oh, for those who want it, here's that elevator video. thatsstrange.net | patreon | merch | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

Welcome to Strange Theatre - a brand new podcast experience from That's Strange! We are trying something entirely new to us and, if you like it, we are setting up a whole new show over at Anchor!   So, yeah... this episode is going to be different.  We love movies (especially horror movies). So, we wanted to make something that is a little out of the ordinary.  We got on Netflix Party and watched Creep (IMDb) and we recorded our conversation and reactions in real time. So, this one is different - and it's best enjoyed by loading the movie up in Netflix, hitting play when we do and listening without any speed adjustments or silence removal.  Just sit back, relax and enjoy the movie with us as we try out something new.  thatsstrange.net | patreon | instagram | twitter | facebook | youtube

The crew at That's Strange is back on the case of the internet's weirdest, strangest, and eye opening stories. We are super excited to announce that we have officially joined //crickets Podcast Network as a Downright Creepy Original podcast. On this week’s Season 3 premier we cover a topic we have wanted to cover from the infancy of That's Strange, The West Memphis Murders. In the summer of 1993, three West Memphis second graders disappeared while riding their bikes near a patch of woods known as Robin Hood Hills. Following a frantic search by families and friends as well as police the night of the disappearance, the boys were no where to be found. In the afternoon of May 6th, 1993, the three boys bodies were found in shallow creek in the Robin Hood Hills. Take a listen as we breakdown the original crime, the arrests and trials of what have become known as The West Memphis Three, as well as dive into who we believe is really responsible for this heinous crime.

This week on That's Strange... We come to terms with the fact that we are now old men who grew up with the internet and we discuss the things that have creeped us out or caused us not to get any sleep over the years.  We have compiled a list of 10 of those things.  We start with the Russian Sleep Experiment for our #10. This one may be fictional but it's a chilling idea nonetheless. Makes you wonder about the person who wrote it. Then, we move on to Bon Skinny which was a run of several TikTok uploads that are sure to creep you out. Next up is the SCP Foundation which you have to read to believe. Next is the Nibiru Cataclysm or Planet X which isn't just another doomsday theory, it's a bit more than that.  Moving along to Project Serpo - this one is weird. Just read about it.  Next up is Don't Hug Me I'm Scared which is basically Sesame Street but fueled by nightmares and horror films.  Speaking of nightmare fuel - Salad Fingers is next. Watch at your own risk - it'll stick in your mind for a while. Then we discuss Numbers Stations and their weird plane in history.  For our number 2 strangest - we discuss the Stanford Prison Experiment which was basically an exercise in power corruption and forced submission. Not a great concoction.  This last one is not for the faint of heart - if you have kids or are particularly set off by hearing about children being mistreated, maybe skip this one... We round out the list with Harlow's Experiment and the unfortunate follow ups to it that really should never have happened.    We are now part of a network / collective / mind share known as Straight Up Strange.  They can also be found on Twitter @strangepodcasts.   If you like our show, you're bound to find more shows to dig into there.

The team at That’s Strange sits down to discuss the horrifying and almost unbelievable story of the Zodiac Killer. Come with us back to the Bay Area in the late 60’s and early 70’s as we breakdown all the nefarious acts committed by the still unknown killer. The Zodiac tormented the San Francisco area with his violent crimes and constant taunting of those trying to catch him. Sending letters to police, media, and even a local lawyer one thing is for sure, the Zodiac craved attention. He went above and beyond to terrify the community. From his horrific murders to the way he taunted police in the letters and ciphers he would send during his active years. You can see all the letters that Zodiac sent here. Sifting throughout the various forms of communication he used will put you in the mind of the killer. While his crimes have become infamous, the Zodiac case remains unsolved. Thousands of suspects were under suspicion while many of them fizzled out, a few remain in the limelight of the Zodiac case. Below you can see some of the suspects that we either didn’t cover or covered briefly. Ross Sullivan became a person of interest through the possible link between the Zodiac Killer and the murder of Cheri Jo Bates in Riverside. Sullivan was a library assistant at Riverside City College and was suspected by colleagues who said that he went missing for several days after the murder. Sullivan resembled sketches of the Zodiac and wore military-style boots like the footprints found at the Lake Berryessa crime scene. Sullivan was hospitalized multiple times for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Kathleen Johns, who claimed to have been abducted by the Zodiac Killer, later recognized U.S. Navy veteran Lawrence Kane in a photo lineup. Patrol officer Don Fouke, who possibly observed the Zodiac Killer following the murder of Paul Stine, said that Kane closely resembled the man he and Eric Zelms encountered. Kane worked at the same Nevada hotel as possible Zodiac victim Donna Lass. Kane was diagnosed with impulse-control disorder after suffering brain injuries in a 1962 accident. He was arrested for voyeurism and prowling. Police informants accused U.S. Navy veteran Richard Reed Marshall(born Joe Don Dickey) of being the Zodiac Killer, claiming that he privately hinted at being a murderer. Marshall lived in Riverside in 1966 and San Francisco in 1969, close to the scenes of the Bates and Stine murders. He was a silent film enthusiast and projectionist, screening Segundo de Chomón’s The Red Phantom (1907), a name used by the author of a possible 1974 Zodiac letter. Detective Ken Narlow said that “Marshall makes good reading but [is] not a very good suspect in my estimation.” Ted Kaczynski, also known as the Unabomber, was investigated for possible connections to the Zodiac Killer in 1996. Kaczynski worked in northern California at the time of the Zodiac murders, and like the Zodiac had an interest in cryptography and threatened the press into publishing his communications.[98] Kaczynski was ruled out by both the FBI and SFPD based on fingerprint and handwriting comparison, and by his absence from California on certain dates of known Zodiac activity. Bruce Davis, a member of Charles Manson’s Manson Family cult and a convicted murderer, was investigated, but no evidence linking him to the Zodiac murders was discovered. A 1970 report by the California Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation stated that all male members of the Manson Family had been investigated and eliminated as Zodiac suspects. In 2007, a man named Dennis Kaufman claimed that his stepfather Jack Tarrance was the Zodiac. Kaufman turned several items over to the FBI including a hood similar to the one worn by the Zodiac. According to news sources, DNA analysis conducted by the FBI on the items was deemed inconclusive in 2010. In 2014, Gary Stewart published a book, The Most Dangerous Animal of All, in which he claimed his search for his biological father, Earl Van Best, Jr., led him to conclude Van Best was the Zodiac Killer. In 2020, the book was adapted for FX Network as a documentary series. We hope you all enjoy this episode on the Zodiac killer. The case remains unsolved to this day.

We are thrilled to reveal our season finale on Mothman! Rounding out our season with another folklore creature seemed like the perfect cap to an amazing season! We couldn't be more happy with the support that we have gotten since first starting That's Strange. Unlike most season breaks, we will only be gone for a short break. We hope you enjoy the Mothman episode! Mothman was one of the most interesting topics to research because of the fact that his sightings were so rare. Unlike Bigfoot, loch ness, or any other creature, his sightings were all within a year. While many believe to have seen him outside of the West Virginia area, the original sightings are what build this folklore. Stay tuned to our Facebook on updates on season 2 and the exciting news we will have in the coming weeks! If you're having trouble finding us anywhere head over to our Linktree for all our different links! Thank you all again for the amazing response to our first season and we are going to continue this momentum into season 2 and beyond! We will see you all real soon!

Finishing out our cult series, we saved the most tragic story for last. Alex takes us into the mind of Jim Jones, following his story from his humble beginnings to the People's Temple final day. Alex continues our deep dive into our favorite religious cults to round out our first ever three part series. Saving what we felt was the most tragic story of them all due to the sheer number of people who lost their lives. Jim Jones, facing heavy media scrutiny decided to move his temple out of the country; somewhere he promised would be a paradise for his followers. However, the cascading domino effect of his final days lead to the largest single loss of American lives due to a deliberate act until the September 11th attacks. If you're interested in the recording that we discuss of "Jim Jones Death Tape", head over here to listen to it in its entirety.
