File 0005-0006: Tunguska Detectives of Moonville
Pt 1: November 20th 2020 / Pt 2: November 27th 2020
In this two part episode our hosts, Cayla, Nathan and Halli take a look a three cases of intrigue:
- The Moonville Tunnel: Moonville is a ghost town in Ohio. Little remains of this former mining community except a few foundations, a cemetery, and an abandoned railroad tunnel which is the subject of numerous ghost stories.
- The Origins of Private Detectives: Eugène-François Vidocq was a French criminal who lived a wild life with multiple stints in prison, the army and a failed paper factory who somehow became the father of modern criminology and the private eye
- The Tunguska Event: On the morning of June 30th 1908 a massive explosion occurred over the sparsely occupied eastern Siberian taiga. It flattened 80 million trees over an area of 2,150 km or 830 s miles, nearly the size of Tokyo. Despite thousands of investigations, no consensus has been reached on what exactly happened all those years ago.
