Known to many as one of the country's most haunted houses, the Winchester Mystery house holds just as many peculiarities in the physical world as it does in the spirit. What started as a modest farmhouse was turned into the most unorthodox house ever built over three decades of continuous construction. With a staircase that leads to a ceiling, doors that lead to nowhere and over 160 total rooms, 40 of which are bedrooms, one has to ponder the very same question - how on earth would I ever find my iPhone charger? It was plugged in just right there so I could watch TV and charge at same time! I swear. Or wait, was it in bathroom so I could charge while getting ready, or... Darnit I forget! Where is it? Why me?!
On today's show, we sit down with Winchester House expert Chris Garcia who has been passionately intrigued with the house for most of his life. Through his research, his local knowledge, and countless visits to the home, he has inside knowledge you won't hear anywhere else. What I'm saying is that he will leave no oddity or spooky twist and turn left ...unturned (um, not sure that totally makes sense). What I'm trying to say is Chris is really awesome ok? Join us on our Halloween train of scary and comedic and check back each of the following Thursdays in October for a new Halloween-esque episode.

Thanks for hopping back onto the plane with us to examine what really happened to missing airliner MH370.
A Commercial flight operated by Malaysia Airlines took off in the early morning of March 8th, 2014 heading to Beijing China. After what appeared to be normal protocol up until about an hour into the flight, air traffic control replied what would be the final words ever heard from the plane – “goodnight,” as it left one air jurisdiction. After that, a series of mostly unknown events would lead to the aircraft being the only one with the exception of a plane flown by one Amelia Erhardt to disappear permanently.
On today's show we sit down with our usual cast of characters to take you play-by-play into the events that led up to the plane's disappearance. Next week, we'll examine what may have actually happened.
How much do we really know about Yuri Yudin, the hiker who turned back and discontinued the trek with his nine fellow hikers in the Ural Mountains at Dyatlov Pass? Come to think of it how much do we know about any Yuri for that matter?
What if we told you that Yuri Cuntsovich was lurking right under your nose the entire time. And possibly lurking under... ok sorry, going down a weird, strange path now... But why? Why would Mr. Cuntsovich do such a thing? Exactly.
We didn’t feel like our two-part show on the Dyaltov Pass mystery was enough so we’re bringing you some bonus material that might just finally prove the mystery. This little Yuri went to the market, this little Yuri stayed home, and this little Yuri went wee, wee, wee, on the Grognostics Podcast. Let's just say that after today's show you will know with 100% certainty what happened to the hikers at Dyatlov Pass. Give a listen.
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.
Edward dreams of a fresh new life, free from the shackles of his past when he steps onto a boat headed for the new world in 1587. However, shortly after arrival when colonists start vanishing one by one, he and the rest of the settlement realize that their dream of a fresh new life, has become the most sinister of nightmares.
Grab a cold beverage, summon your imaginative side, and give a listen to the first-ever Grognostic fictional short - A Roanoke Story.
Take a spooky journey with the MoJo sisters, a white witch and the two most haunted places in America. The lads throw it all in the cauldron, rattle the skeletons, and give a goodnight kiss to the ghouls, goblins, and spiders crawling on microphones on this third and final show in the series. Beer review with Ely Alexander.
Take another journey down the creepy rabbit hole with us on part 2/3 of our Halloween Special. We count down more of the top 10 Haunted Places in America, visit a local haunted eatery, Sir Matthew corresponds in the field (36 min) and have beer review by Oisin O'Reilly.
Welcome to Spookgnostics - a special trilogy of episodes brewed with horror, spooky knowledge and hair-raising hilarity. The lads will count down the Top 10 Haunted Places in America. There are ghost stories told first-hand by guests. Sir Matthew is on-site at a haunted mansion in California. There are even on-site interviews at local haunted establishments. Grab a beer, make out with a deer and/or zombie vampire skeleton and get ready to laugh and get spooked at the same time. Grognostics welcomes guest Megan Bledsoe for this scary expedition.
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.
