About Us

Unexplained is a haunting and unsettling bi-weekly podcast about strange and mysterious real life events that continue to evade explanation. A story-based show mixing spoken-word narrative, history and ideas - often to terrifying effect - that explores the space between what we think of as real and what is not; where sometimes belief can be as concrete as ‘reality,’ whatever that is… More info at www.unexplainedpodcast.com and on twitter @unexplainedpod and facebook.com/unexplainedpodcast

S04 Episode 16 Extra: Sanity and Other Irrationalities

The notion that it is possible to exist in one state of awareness and perpetrate terrible acts without even realising it, represents a very singular type of horror. This week's Extra, with a little help from Euripides, takes a closer look at the idea. Go to @unexplainedpod, facebook.com/unexplained or www.unexplainedpodcast.com for more info. Thank you for listening.

S04 Episode 16 Extra: Sanity and Other Irrationalities

S04 Episode 16: Folie, Adieu

In May 2008, twin sisters and Swedish nationals Sabina and Ursula Eriksson took a ferry from Ireland to Liverpool in England and boarded a bus to London. The pair would never make it to London nor ever disclose where they were going or why they were in England at all. By the end of their bizarre excursion, one would be left critically hurt in hospital and the other arrested for murder.

S04 Episode 15 Extra: Final Cut

Whatever we might think about the actions of Burke & Hare, their crimes were as much a result of market forces as anything else. Today's black market organ trade provides a very modern equivalent.

S04 Episode 15: Where The Bodies Lie

It was on one bright summer's day in 1836 that a group of boys out hunting rabbits on Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh, made a very bizarre and macabre discovery. Could it have been linked to one of the city's most infamous murder sprees from only a few years before? Go to @unexplainedpod, facebook.com/unexplained or www.unexplainedpodcast.com for more info.

S04 Episode 14 Extra: 2+2=5

In last week's episode, Negative Space, we looked at the chilling tale of the Perron family haunting, which, like many people I first came across through the film The Conjuring.

S04 Episode 14: Negative Space

Many listeners of Unexplained might be familiar with the 2013 film The Conjuring directed by James Wan. Some however, might not know the true story behind the film. Before Hollywood, before the involvement of Lorraine and Ed Warren there was just a family, an old farmhouse and some very peculiar goings on...

S04 Episode 13 Extra: Fade to White

S04 Episode 13: Lost in Stormy Visions (Pt.3 of 3)

Part Three of S04 Episode 13: Lost in Stormy Visions In the late 16th century, a series of English dreamers attempted to establish the first English colony in the New World. Their efforts, in equal parts brave and utterly callous would leave a trail of death and disaster in their wake. It is nothing less than the story of the founding of modern America and at its centre lies perhaps one if its greatest mysteries: The Lost Colony.
