747: Hamster Wheel, Near Death, & Scouts Honor


Show Notes

Sarah shares a disturbing and wild experience recently in which she believes she was drugged at a bar, and how it’s affected her behavior. Susie talks about a man who is trying to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a–wait for it–hamster wheel. We learn why this is his “dream,” why he keeps getting stopped by the authorities, and what we think is inspiring his quest. We also hear about the American caver who got stuck in a cave in Turkey and had to be rescued because of gastrointestinal issues. We discuss near death experiences, and why one man who studies them is convinced there is life after death. Plus, we learn about “fear death experiences,” and what’s behind life-flashing-before-your-eyes in those moments of distress. Susie talks about the Scout’s Honor documentary on the Boys Scouts abuse allegations. And Sooz Reviews the Never Let Him Go docu-series about a mysterious death of an American PhD student, and how his brother took on the job of investigating it, and why it took 30 years to solve it. We also hear about BS High, which is about a completely made up high school football team that ended up playing on ESPN. A lost hiker was rescued thanks to a bear cam in Alaska and the people who watch it for fun.
