IN THIS EPISODE: On September 18, 1973, Georgia Governor Jimmy Carter (later to become President Carter) filed a report with the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena claiming he’d seen a UFO. (The Jimmy Carter UFO Sighting) *** While most pregnancies go off without a hitch, once in a while there are abnormalities – and sometimes those abnormalities aren’t with the delivery, but with the pregnancy itself. We’ll look at some bizarre real stories of pregnancies that gave almost everyone involved a shock! (Perplexing Pregnancies) *** Stories of monsters have been told for thousands of years – but there are a few cryptids that we had no idea about until relatively recently. We’ll look at a few monsters that we didn’t know about until just a few years ago! (Modern Monsters) *** You know what they say about a woman scorned. We’ll look at the most murderous wives in history – maybe it’ll give some of the men listening an idea of what to avoid in a relationship! (Murderous Wives) *** Most people have at least a passing knowledge of who Typhoid Mary was, and how she spread typhoid to others while being asymptomatic herself – but the full story is a lot sadder than you’ve been told. (The Sad True Story of Typhoid Mary) *** And more!
