Episode 5: What Hides Beneath / by Unexplained Podcast


For all the myths and stories that have sprung from the sea, fantastical tales of monsters and mermaids, there remain those that make no allusions to metaphor, whose place is not for the pages of the poet or the psychologists couch but exist merely as a matter of record.

Stories of hidden worlds and unknown creatures that may yet prove to be beyond our wildest imaginations…

Featuring the mysterious K-219 incident.

Research, writing, music and production by Richard MacLean Smith.
