Lucy Cooke aka "Sleeping Lucy" was a famous clairvoyant physician who would heal people while in trance. She is credited with healing hundreds of patients and also could recover lost items, and provide other mystical services. And on today's show she takes her skills to the best podcast in all the land - Serial Podcast. Kidding, she's on Grognostics! Well I mean not her personally -she's been dead for 120 years. We break down who she was, what she did and the controversy/intrigue around mystic healers in general. Each show starts out with a skit to put you in the shoes of the subject itself. Enjoy.

The lost city of Atlantis has intrigued historians, dreamers, and well... me. Truth is many are obsessed. One Atlantis theorist described his pursuit of the potentially mythical land as a gambling addiction. And, whether you realize it or not, you are obsessed with it too. It's ingrained in our DNA. So what's it all about? Where was Atlantis? Have we found it? Who were these futuristic humans? Join us for our latest show to find out. As usual, every show starts with a skit. To fully comprehend it you need to either be on some sort of psychedelic root or know that Plato is by far the most important character in this multi-Millenial tale. Sit back and soak it all in. Enjoy.

Ye there lads. Top of the morning to ya. It’s St. Patrick’s Day. Why aren’t you in an Irish pub throwing back a few of the black stuff? What’s that? There’s a pandemic? Oh. Well. Don’t worry. We’ve got you sorted.  We’ve brought the pub to you. On today’s show we sit down with Tam and Oisin, who have just the right accents for today’s holiday to educate listeners on the beer scene across the pond. What’s the fascination with stouts in Ireland? Guinness? What’s the craft beer scene like in Ireland? And more importantly how many expletives can a few Irishmen use in one episode? 255 is the answer to that by the way.

Join us for another annual St. Patrick’s Day episode as Jason and Steve do blind tastings of six beers – (American Stouts from Highwater Brewing, Epic Brewing and Firestone as well as two types of Guinness and one beer we’d all like to forget). Give a listen and then go out and get yourself a cold one old St. Paddy himself would be proud of.  

FYI THIS IS NOT THE SHOW FOR PEOPLE WHO DON’T ENJOY THE USE OF FOUR-LETTER WORDS…

Miraculously bees know which flowers to land on to pollinate. Jellyfish are able to live essentially forever by constantly multiplying. Bears go to bed and know exactly when to wake up after months of slumber. And Jason? Well, Jason can drink a beer while standing on one leg. I mean, not all of mother nature's gifts are spectacular. Bears for example. Not that impressive. So if all these species of insects and animals possess magical superpowers why can't humans? Why can't we harness the ability to smell dangerous gases or toxic chemicals or sense the magnetic fields other species can? How about seeing or feeling radiation? Everything we need to thrive is here on this earth. We just have to find it. Today, you've found the best podcast on the planet. Thank you for that mother nature.

President's Day - a day to reflect on the leader's of our nation's past, or a day to stretch a drinking binge weekend into a fourth day of monumental debauchery. 

Our country has been led by natural-born leaders, by individuals thrust into a leader role without warning or those who have thrusted their way into scandal. And everything in between.  On today's show we treat them all equally breaking down each of the 45 past presidents in one minute or less. Some information you may already know, while some, such as which presidents were fond of reptile intercourse for example you didn't. Or did you? You little... 

As we educate we do this Drunk History style with a shot of beer for each president described. It gets silly. It gets unruly. It gets just perfectly divine. 

Do try this at home.
