For decades, in rural Western Pennsylvania, the government has been capturing, containing and storing dangerous Cryptids in huge underground catacombs in a top-secret program known as Project "No Talky Abouty". They also built a town to house the most notorious and strangest criminals from the witness relocation program right over top of those catacombs. That town is called Dunglewood. Now the government's precious secrets are about to be revealed to all as one of their experiments has proven to be too strong and too stupid to be contained. Mostly too stupid. Join Zeke Delfour, Vlad the Vampire, Jenny the Kill-bot, and Elvis Aaron Pressley, who is also a Necromancer for some reason and their all-star cast on the super popular podcast Squatch Smashers!
The Quack Attack Podcast is the only show solely devoted to the Mighty Ducks trilogy (that we know of). Mike, Tommy, Kevin and possibly a special guest or two give their theories on Gordon Bombay, Charlie Conway, the Ducks, the Hawks, Iceland, Eden Hall Academy and everything else in the Mighty Ducks universe. You'll laugh, you'll reminisce, you might even cry. But you'll never forget where you were when you learned the Quack Attack was back, Jack.
Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
