Ghost ships, lost cities, unsolved crimes and mysteries, ancient mythology, disappeared explorers - if it’s a historical mystery, it’s going under the microscope.
History has always been fascinating, but more fascinating than what we know is what we don’t; in this podcast Ashleigh Stiles looks into famous and obscure episodes of folklore, unexplained circumstances, and unsolved mysteries from around the world and throughout time.
