File 0075/0076/0078: Rabid Pirate Dolphins of Tuared
In this three-part episode our hosts, Cayla, Nathan, Halli and guest Courtney take a look at four cases of intrigue:
- Peter the Dolphin: In the 1960s, Margaret Lovatt was part of a Nasa-funded project to communicate with dolphins. Soon she was living with 'Peter' 24 hours a day in a converted house and things would only get stranger
- Rabies: In most of the western world, the threat of rabies is rarely a concern only coming up if you get bit by an strange animal or one suspected of carrying the disease. It's easy to forget just how deadly and how terrifying rabies can be and Halli is here to remind us
- The Man from Tuared: In an airport in Tokyo, in 1954, a man gets stopped for having some suspicious documentation. The problem? His passport declared he came from a country that doesn't exist. It's an infamous urban legend, often cited as proof of parallel dimensions or alternative universes, you wouldn't expect there to be much truth in the story. Except that there is.
- Pirates are Gay (No, Really): Nathan tells us about pirates and they're progressive ideals
