The journey into the mysterious deaths of nine hikers in the Ural Mountains of the Soviet Union continues on. On this show we dive head first into the snow (see what we did there?) to try and determine the cause while drinking some sweet-tasting brew from Tavour.com, the best beer delivery platform on the planet. So, what did exactly happen to them? You'll just have to give a listen to find out now won't you? 

As usual, we always appreciate a review of the show on apple podcasts or wherever you listen and please take a moment to follow us on Instagram where we post often about beer, mysteries, and random hilarity.

In 1959 nine experienced hikers went missing in the snowy Ural Mountains of the Soviet Union. Over the course of the next several months, each hiker's body was discovered, most of which were one-by-one. With each discovery, the mystery weaved itself tighter and tighter around unexplained and terrifying. First it was discovered their tent was cut from the inside indicating something had scared them out into the arctic night. One had bone fractures. Another was missing its tongue and eyes. At the time, Soviet authorities determined that a portion of the group had died from an "unknown compelling force," and 60 years later, despite a number of theories, we're nowhere closer to solving this unexplainable mystery... until now. 

Join us as we chat with regular guest Jason Reedy (Foreign Accent Syndrome, Oktoberfest, Resurrection Mary, Friends of the Show) for a bone-chilling tale that is the zeitgeist of podcasts at the moment that you absolutely must hear. On part I, we'll break down the story and next week we'll cover some theories.  Beer review by Oisin.

Sure, cattle mutilations have been evaluated on other podcasts, the Discovery Channel and by conspiracy theorists, but none have been quite discussed like you’ll hear on this show. What is causing these gruesome deaths? Is it aliens? The government? Cow-tipping gone terribly wrong? Grab a cold one, turn on your funny bone and join us for 60 minutes of absolute hilarity. Special thanks to Jevon Mattiassi now a two-time guest for stopping by to contribute to the debauchery. And special thanks to Kelly Stravers for her brilliant southern accent in our intro skit.

On this hilariously tantalizing episode, the Grognostic lads grab the sarcophagus by the esophagus and exhume their way inside ancient Egypt’s most sinister intrigue - tomb curses. Are they real, mere coincidences, or just something Brendan Frazier conjured up to get more people to watch his films? And of course, some of life’s most-queried conundrums will also be addressed - why don’t we see more mummy apparitions on boat cruises? How come there aren’t more cat selfies on social media? Why aren’t more drug-addicted archeologists just out and about? Come take a journey deep into the less explored, hilarious bowels of antiquity and explore for yourself, if you dare.
