Carousel Sniper Victim

Come with us as we stumble our way through a plethora of topics from true crime, wars, conspiracies, history, literature and anything and everything we deem worthy of the Carousel Sniper Victim treatment. Shallow, heavily tangent laden, poorly researched discussions. But, by Zeus, We edit them well and pretend to give the illusion of knowing stuff about things... The first episode is a narrated timeline, scored with custom backing music by our sound designer. The second episode is a slightly intoxicated, somewhat drunken stumble towards the truth as we breakdown the topic in greater detail and go off on wild drifting tangents. Ready to share a laugh, a beer and some poorly researched fact we think we remember? Join us, as we attempt to comprehend the weird, wonderful, and sometimes dark world around us. Much love, Jack and Shaun Carousel Sniper Victim.

Unexplained

Unexplained is a bi-weekly podcast about strange and mysterious real life events that continue to evade explanation. A show about the space between what we think of as real and what is not. Where the unknown and paranormal meets some of the most radical ideas in science today. When something is inexplicable, that mystery in itself can become the story. In many ways, it is often the lure of the mystery that keeps us coming back for more... And maybe, ultimately, some things are just better left unexplained… More info at www.unexplainedpodcast.com and on twitter @unexplainedpod and facebook.com/unexplainedpodcast
