The AIDS Epidemic
In the late '70s, a mysterious disease cropped up in the U.S. where healthy young people were suddenly dying and doctors couldn't explain why. By the early 1980s, nearly 1000 U.S. citizens had died from AIDS. Some wonder if the U.S. government was intentionally ignoring the disease, or if they engineered the epidemic as a population control scheme. Parcasters - Interested in political dealings?

The Moon Landing Pt. 2
Low-resolution footage. Shadows that don't quite line up. Visible prop markers on rocks. If the 1969 moon landing was staged, it wasn't done meticulously. Questions remain about the discrepancies in the photos and videos taken aboard the Apollo 11 mission. Perhaps faking a moon landing was even harder than actually putting a man on the moon. Sponsors!

The Moon Landing
Half a billion viewers around the world tuned in to watch Neil Armstrong take his first steps on the moon's surface in 1969. It was one of the greatest television moments in history - and many suggest Stanley Kubrick should have received a Best Director award for the broadcast. Even today, there's considerable speculation that putting a man on the moon is a task too difficult for even the best astronauts to accomplish.

The Fate of Rudolph Hess Pt. 2
When a 93-year-old Nazi war criminal was found dead in Spandau Prison in 1987, some refused to believe the official verdict of suicide by hanging. Doctors were baffled that the weak, elderly prisoner had the strength to hang himself. The timing of Rudolph Hess’s death was suspicious as well. After spending 50 years in prison, he was finally going to be released. Sponsors! Robinhood - Get a FREE stock like Apple, Ford, or Sprint to help you build your portfolio.
