Great content, horrible host. I don't care about your personal life, or your politics. Just tell the stories. Also, don't start the ads with "Friends." We're not your friends. It's patronizing.

Content is truly good. I just get tired of the snarky-white-girl-wokeness in the narration. let's stop getting worked up about people's vocabulary from decades ago to impress people today.

I love the host of this podcast. She is snarky and skeptical, and the stories are great!

The worst host I've ever heard in a podcast! The host is goofy and awkward. The only time I've started a podcast and given up part way through an episode. Absolutely awful.

Description

From Executive Producer Patrick Hinds and the Obsessed Network comes a new podcast about all the things that make us wonder. Each week, we’ll tell you a true story that will fascinate and terrify you: a family who receive letters from a “Watcher” after moving into their new house, a hotel that’s seen so much death that it has to be cursed, UFO encounters, hauntings, Bigfoot sightings, and so much more. Written and hosted by Tony Award-winning actor and celebrated writer Daisy Eagan, “Strange and Unexplained” is a journey into the uncomfortable and the unknowable that will leave you both laughing and sleeping with the lights on.

Episode Date
17: The Death of Kendrick Johnson
2239
On January 11, 2013, the body of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson was found inside a vertical rolled up gym mat in the gymnasium of his high school in Valdosta, Georgia. A preliminary investigation and autopsy concluded that the death was accidental. But a second autopsy determined that he died from blunt force trauma. So which was it - a tragic accidental death? Or was it murder?

15: The Los Angeles Murder House
2203
In the early morning hours of December 6, 1959, the residents of a wealthy section of Los Feliz, Los Angeles, woke up to the sound of a blood curdling scream. Their 18-year-old neighbor, Judye Perelson, was begging for her life from inside her home. "Don't kill me" she shouted at her father, the esteemed doctor, Harold Perelson, who had attacked her with a ball-peen hammer. Judye survived, though other members of the family weren't so lucky. And though the surviving Perelsons moved out of the home where this tragedy took place, the echo of the murders remained, and the once great Los Angeles mansion turned into an infamous house of horrors.

The Tylenol Murders (From "Crimes of the Centuries")
2371
Strangers! We're taking a break this week, but we wanted to share the FASCINATING AND TERRIFYING TALE of the "The Tylenol Murders" from another Obsessed Network podcast: "Crimes of the Centuries"

When 52-year-old Bruce Nickell suddenly dropped dead in Washington state, investigators at first thought he'd died of a heart attack. But then a second person collapsed, and police realized that the two victims had both taken the painkiller Excedrin. Suddenly, they realized they were dealing with a copycat of a case that had haunted federal investigators for nearly 15 years. 

In that earlier case, seven people died when someone randomly tampered with the over-the-counter painkiller to replace some of the powder inside capsules with enough cyanide to kill an entire family. Those deaths changed how medication is packaged nationwide and made it a federal crime to tamper with such products -- a legal change that years later came back to bite Nickell's killer.

If you enjoyed this episode, you can find and subscribe to "Crimes of the Centuries" wherever you get your podcasts.

14: Hiding in Plain Sight: Secret Identities
2217
Have you ever had a secret? Have you ever known something important - something other people really want to know - and just kept it to yourself? Now imagine that secret was about yourself, and if anyone found out about it, it would completely change your life - maybe for the worse. It might even get you killed. This week: two stories, almost a century apart, about important secrets that are completely unrelated, except for their queerness. HAPPY PRIDE, STRANGERS!

13: UFO Encounters: Stories the Government Tried To Hide
2214
For decades, Naval officers and Airforce pilots have reported strange--but very very real--encounters with UFOs. These encounters are up close and very personal. Since the Pentagon's inceptions, the government has denied ever looking into these encounters, but that was a lie. And in July of last year, classified documents detailing these encounters and the top-level investigations into them were finally declassified. The stories are amazing and terrifying and tell us what we've always known: UFOs are real...probably.

2192
How does a 200-ton passenger plane - carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew - vanish into thin air mid-flight?

This is the story of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which took off from Kuala Lumpur on March 8, 2014, headed for Beijing, but never arrived there... or anywhere. So what happened? Where did it go? And how?

7: The Vanishing Drowning Men
2168
How does a man disappear from a group of friends and show up dead two months later, in a river, 15 miles away from where he was last seen? And what if the body shows no evidence of having been in the water for more than a few days. What if this happens dozens or even hundreds of times all across the country over a period of years. People claim it's a serial killer? Or a network of serial killers? We don't necessarily agree.

1: The Watcher House
2196
In June 2014, Derek and Maria Broaddus bought their dream home in Westfield, New Jersey—a 6-bedroom, 3.5-bath mansion at 657 Boulevard. Just days later, before the family even moved in, they received their first letter from “The Watcher.”

The Watcher said they had been watching the house for decades—watching the house was their job, their life. “Do you know the history of the house?” the letter asked. “Do you know what lies within the walls of 657 Boulevard? Why are you here? I will find out.” And that was just the beginning of the nightmare.

PREVIEW: Strange and Unexplained with Daisy Eagan
81
From Executive Producer Patrick Hinds and the Obsessed Network comes a new podcast about all the weird stuff happening around us.

Do you believe in ghosts? How about bigfoot? Do you think it’s strange and fascinating that a 4 year old in Oklahoma could look at a black and white picture of a man from the 1930s and say ‘that was me. Before.” And then provide actual, verifiable details of the man’s life? If so, “Strange and Unexplained With Daisy Eagan” is about to be your new favorite podcast.

Daisy is a Tony Award-winning actor, writer, and true crime fanatic. But she’s also a skeptic. Each week She looks at real stories of hauntings, disappearances, UFO encounters, the Bermuda Triangle, near death experiences, and anything else that feels just beyond what we can easily make sense of. She is your guide into the inexplicable details of these stories. But she’s also like, “show me the receipts.”
