Episode 283: Play Me Some Mountain Madness Part 2 (Spooktacular 2020)
Show Notes Episode 283: Play Me Some Mountain Madness Part 2 The Yuba County Five
This week Host Dave Bledsoe reveals HIS thoughts on what happened to the Yuba County Five only to reveal he hasn’t really given it any thought. (What, you expected answers?) On the show this week we examine other people’s theories of the disappearance from the likely to the wildly implausible. (Again, you expected answers?)
Along the way we dive into the history of the man many believe is the cause of the Boy’s vanishing into the night, Gary Mathias. We learn about his mental illness, criminal history and deep and abiding love of long walks and staggering amounts of lysergic acid diethylamide! From there we looked into the explanations of the families of the missing men and investigators and of course the random opinions of people on Reddit! (Reddit, where you go if you just want AN answer, not necessarily the right one.) Then we detour into the paranormal explanations with a needlessly long and utterly unproven theory that fits with the theme of the month, but has no basis in evidence. (Happy decorative gourd season motherfuckers!) Then we provide you with our theory, which best fits both the facts as known and the time and place the disappearance occurred. (It is based on exhaustive research, meaning we got really high and decided this is what happened!)
Our Sponsor this week is the 1969 Mercury Montego, a car so great awesome you will get lost in it! We open the show with George Carlin pontificating on the nature of absence and close with Two Minutes to Late Night and their mountain getaways! Spooktacular 2020 continues next week with the Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident!
