Description

Unexplained is a haunting and unsettling bi-weekly podcast about strange and mysterious real life events that continue to evade explanation. A story-based show mixing spoken-word narrative, history and ideas - often to terrifying effect - that explores the space between what we think of as real and what is not; where sometimes belief can be as concrete as ‘reality,’ whatever that is… More info at www.unexplainedpodcast.com and on twitter @unexplainedpod and facebook.com/unexplainedpodcast

Announcement: It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the postponement of Season 05 of Unexplained, which was due to launch tomorrow. Despite the series being ready to go, the uncertainty caused by the outbreak of Covid-19 has unfortunately led to the pausing of my advertising agreement for the time being. It has taken months of work to prepare for the launch and with Unexplained being my full-time job and livelihood I simply can’t afford to release the episodes without being able to monetise them. It goes without saying that your support is hugely appreciated and I’m so sorry to disappoint all you incredible listeners in this way; I feel hugely disappointed at having to postpone. What this does mean though is that you can rest assured that when things return to a relative state of normality, the full series of Unexplained will be ready to launch with a bang. I will release more info as I have it, in the meantime stay safe and stay spooky, Richard MacLean... Smith.
SEASON 4 SEND-OFF All of us will die and even for those who believe we are somehow more than a bundle of cells and flickering synapses and that something else awaits us beyond this mortal realm – there are few who consider the preservation of the body or its final resting place to have any significant bearing on that. So why does disturbing a grave site make us so uneasy?  Perhaps because our relationship with death has never really been about the dead...

Many say that if a genuine alien spacecraft really had appeared on earth, there would be incontrovertible photographic or video evidence to prove it. And yet, there are countless videos and photos purporting to reveal exactly that. More often than not, however they are dismissed as cases of mistaken identity or simply fakes. In reality, unless a craft were to land on a busy high street in full view of a live news feed and collectively witnessed by everyone you knew – any photo or video evidence can easily be dismissed. Perhaps that is, with the exception of one... Go to @unexplainedpod, facebook.com/unexplainedpodcast or unexplainedpodcast.com for more info. Thank you for listening.

In the early hours of March 14th 1928, below deck of an ocean liner just off the coast of West Africa, former RAF pilot Colonel George Henderson reportedly experienced a 'crisis apparition' of his friend and fellow pilot, Captain Raymond Hinchcliffe saying he was lost and in great danger.

For any regular listener of this show, as you may have gathered, Unexplained is rather fond of a good old haunted house story.   The story of the Cooneen ghost house of Ireland is just one such tale,  often regarded as one of the most compelling supposed true-life hauntings of all time...  Go to @unexplainedpod, facebook.com/unexplainedpodcast or unexplainedpodcast.com for more info.

Whatever your thoughts on supposed occult groups conducting rituals in England's west Sussex countryside, for whatever reason, it's fair to say the region has certainly had its fair share of weirdness.  In fact, only last year, yet another peculiar story emerged from out of the shadows of the Sussex Downs, as compelling as any other that had previously come to light... Featuring the story of Anthea Ring.

Chanctonbury Ring, an ancient and unusual landmark located in Sussex, England, and the surrounding countryside has long been considered by some to be a hotbed of strange and peculiar activity.

Why do you use Cymru instead of Wales? As a Welsh person saying this, it's not necessary when speaking English, you can just say Wales. And your pronounciation is a little off, it's Cum-ree.

This was great fun and a welcome time waster, reminiscent of those choose your own adventure books I used to read when I was a child. This is a dark, gruesome fairy tale for adults. It's very violent and gory, not recommended for small children.

I can’t afford to buy your book. It just won’t happen. In this time of isolation and lockdown I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for you to put out more content. Or have you stopped researching? Verrrryyy close to unsubscribing; I used to look forward to new episodes, now I know they simply won’t appear so I rarely bother. Disappointed to say the least.

No new episodes since the beginning of January 2020 and it is now mid-March. Has the show stopped production?

I find the background composition so repetitious and annoying, it takes the pleasure away from the very intriguing broadcasts.
