From new revelations in the cases of the Dyatlov Pass Incident and the Somerton Man to a discussion of our favorite stories we've ever covered, welcome to the special 100th episode of History Uncovered.
In February 2020 — just weeks before the world started talking about “flattening the curve” and “social distancing” — we here at All That’s Interesting launched our podcast, History Uncovered. Now, just about four years later, we’re thrilled to mark our show’s 100th episode.
Over the past 99 episodes, we’ve covered all sorts of stories from the realms of history and true crime. Our very first episode took a look at the eerie unsolved disappearance of Vatican teenager Emanuela Orlandi, whose strange case has been linked to the Pope, Turkish insurrectionists, Italian mobsters, and even Satanic orgy rings.
Since then, we’ve covered a vast array of subjects — from the lingering questions surrounding Marilyn Monroe’s death to the creepy truth behind the hotel from The Shining to the most interesting little-known facts about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
Elsewhere we discussed the doomed saga of cave explorer Floyd Collins, as well as the disappearances of people like Amy Lynn Bradley — who mysteriously vanished from a Caribbean cruise ship — which continue to confound authorities to this day.
Now, on our 100th episode, we’re taking a look back at a couple of the stories we covered — ones where groundbreaking new information has come to light. We’re going to delve into recent theories about the baffling deaths of the Soviet hikers in the 1959 Dyatlov Pass Incident, shocking developments in the Delphi murder case of Abby Williams and Libby German in 2017, and new revelations concerning the Somerton Man, who washed up dead on an Australian beach in 1948 and whose identity long left the authorities mystified.
We’ll also talk about some of our favorite episodes, your favorite episodes, as well as what’s next for the History Uncovered podcast.
Enjoy this special 100th episode of History Uncovered, and thanks for listening.
