Description

“We don’t know.” answers too many questions. But in this podcast, we don’t take “we don’t know” for an answer. Every Thursday, Unexplained Mysteries investigates the greatest mysteries of history and life on earth, because the answer “we don’t know” is always the scariest. Unexplained Mysteries is part of the Parcast Network and is a Cutler Media production.

Season 2 features our NEW co-host Molly Brandenburg.


Episode Date
S2E29: Amazon Rings

A series of ring-shaped ditches can be found throughout the Brazilian Amazon, which predate the rain forest itself. These structures remain a complete mystery, and archaeologists are unsure what to make of them. It is suggested that they served as burial grounds or a form of defense, but no one knows for sure.

S2E26: “King Arthur” Pt. 2 - The Warrior King
00:38:18

While presumed to have lived during the Dark Ages, nothing was written about King Arthur until centuries after. But when Glastonbury monks uncovered a tomb late in the 12th century with an inscription that read “Here lies buried the famous King Arthur with Guinevere, his second wife, in the aisle of Avalon,” they may have finally found definitive evidence to prove that King Arthur was real. But was it evidence we could trust?
