E66: The Sodder Children

E66: The Sodder Children

June 3, 2019

Christmas 1945 began much like any other holiday for the Sodder family. The boys worked with their father during the day, a number of the children stayed up late on Christmas Eve to play with their new toys, and the rest went to bed in preparation for the busy day ahead. In the middle of the night, the Sodder family home was mysteriously engulfed in flames, with the Sodder parents and four of their children managing to escape. They watched on helplessly as their beloved home burned to the ground, trying desperately to call to the five children who hadn't made it out. By the morning, the home had been reduced to a pile of ashes and five of the Sodder children were seemingly dead. No remains of the five Sodder children were ever found, and the weeks and months following the fire saw dozens of reported sightings of the missing Sodder children.

On this week's episode, we discuss the tragic disappearance of Maurice, Martha, Louis, Jennie, and Betty Sodder, and the lifelong attempts by their parents George and Jennie to find out what happened to their children on Christmas 1945.

E65: The Myrtles Plantation

E65: The Myrtles Plantation

May 27, 2019

Built by Whiskey Rebellion figurehead General David Bradford in 1796, the Myrtles Plantation has a very long and interesting history. It has served as a tourist hotspot for much of its existence, and has developed a reputation as being one of the most haunted houses in the United States. Many visitors to the Myrtles Plantation claim to have seen a young turban-wearing woman roaming the corridors of the house, even waking up in the middle of the night to find her tucking them in or watching over them. Others swear to have encountered the ghosts of a young Native American woman, a Confederate soldier, and even two young children. In the final episode in our four-part Hauntings series, we take a look at the history of the Myrtles Plantation, breaking down the many owners of the property and the alleged spirits that have made it their home.

May 20, 2019

On November 13, 1974, 23-year old Ronald DeFeo Jr. murdered his father, mother, and four siblings late in the night as they slept soundly at their home in Amityville, Long Island. 13 months later, George and Kathleen Lutz and their three children moved into the same house, allegedly experiencing 28 straight days of unexplained terror that would spawn an iconic novel and a famous series of horror films. In the third part of our four-part hauntings series, we take a look at the events that transpired at 112 Ocean Avenue, break down the aftermath of the alleged hauntings, as well as discuss theories about it being a hoax.

E63: The Winchester Mystery House

E63: The Winchester Mystery House

May 13, 2019

With the untimely death of her husband William in 1881, Sarah Winchester inherited partial ownership in the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, giving her more income than she knew what to do with. After moving to San Jose, California, Sarah would begin the seemingly never-ending construction of her labyrinthine Winchester Mystery House, providing builders with nonsensical instructions that included staircases leading to nowhere, doors that opened to more doors, hidden rooms, and many other architectural oddities. It's said that Sarah Winchester received instructions about the houses construction by the spirits of those who had been killed by firearms manufactured by her late husband's company, with Sarah attempting to appease and confuse the angry spirits through the never-ending construction.

On this episode of Big, If True, Matt and Kayla discuss Sarah Winchester and the events leading up to the houses construction, as well as the history of the Winchester Mystery House, theories about the house, and much more.

E62: The Great Amherst Mystery

E62: The Great Amherst Mystery

May 6, 2019

The Great Amherst Mystery is one of Canada's most famous hauntings, and has been cited as being one of the most credible examples of explainable paranormal phenomena in history. The events saw 18-year old Esther Cox and her family be tortured by the presence of spirits for nearly a year, before ending almost as soon as it all began. Actor Walter Hubbell famously wrote about the case, gathering a number of eyewitnesses for testimony, and having them sign an affidavit for the release of his book The Great Amherst Mystery: A True Narrative of the Supernatural. In this episode, we talk about Amherst, Nova Scotia, Esther Cox, and the events that took place from September 1878 until the following summer.

E61: The Death of Adolf Hitler

E61: The Death of Adolf Hitler

April 29, 2019

By 1945, Nazi Germany had seen two years of increasing losses on the Eastern front, the involvement of the United States in the war, and the arrest of close ally Benito Mussolini - early in the final year of the war, it was clear that the Nazi German empire was crumbling quickly. In early 1945, Adolf Hitler and his long-time lover Eva Braun would take refuge in the Fuhrerbunker, where they would allegedly take their lives at the end of April. In the final part of our "Nazi Conspiracy" series, we take a look at events that led to the quick rise and fall of Nazi Germany, the last days of Hitler, and the conspiracies about his alleged suicide.

E60: Edward VIII

E60: Edward VIII

April 22, 2019

King Edward VIII reigned for just 327 days, abdicating the throne after a crisis that involved his being romantically involved with an American divorcee named Wallis Simpson. Following his abdication of the throne, both Edward and his new wife were roundly accused of being Nazi sympathisers, with both having close ties to Nazi government elites. Edward would regularly correspond with Nazi officials, allegedly making statements on more than one occasion that indicated that his loyalty to Britain was now in question. This would lead to the Nazis devising a plan that allegedly involved installing Edward as king once again, using his questionable loyalty to their advantage.

In this episode, we discuss the state of Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1936, the Edward VIII abdication crisis, Operation Willi, the Marburg Files, and much more.

E59: The Reichstag Fire

E59: The Reichstag Fire

April 15, 2019

1933's Reichstag fire is perhaps the most pivotal moment in the rise of the Nazi Party to power in Germany. The burning of the Reichstag allowed Adolf Hitler and the leading Nazi elite to consolidate their power, passing the Reichstag Fire Decree and the Enabling Act of 1933 that would strip away the fundamental rights of German citizens, and give Adolf Hitler the power of both the presidency and the chancellorship. In the second part of our "Nazi Conspiracy" series, we take a look at the Reichstag Fire and the fall out from the event, and discuss Marinus van der Lubbe, the alleged arson responsible for starting the fire.

E58: Geli Raubal

E58: Geli Raubal

April 8, 2019

Geli Raubal, daughter of Adolf Hitler's half-sister Angela, was said to be the only woman that Hitler ever truly loved. During the early years of the Nazi Party's rapid rise in the political sphere of the Weimar Republic, young Geli caught the eye of her much older "Uncle Alf", leading to years of Raubal being kept as something of a hostage to Hitler's desires. Ultimately, it would end in the mysterious death of the 23-year old Geli Raubal, and lead Adolf Hitler into an alleged period of deep depression at one of the most crucial points in his career.

For half a decade, the creature allegedly terrorized communities throughout South and North America, killing large amounts of goats, chickens, cattle, and other animals.

In this episode, Matt and Kayla cover the history of the chupacabra, breaking down theories about the creature's origin and its sudden disappearance.

E56: Remote Viewing

March 18, 2019

Remote viewing is defined by the CIA as being the “acquisition and description, by mental means, of information blocked from ordinary perception by distance, shield, or time.” For over two decades, the American intelligence community conducted hundreds of remote viewing experiments under a variety of project names, gathering intel about Soviet military bases, as well as missing persons and objects. This week, Matt and Kayla discuss the long and often complicated story of remote viewing, covering the alleged experts in the field, a number of stranger than fiction success stories, and the eventual abandonment of remote viewing by the intelligence community.

E55: Project MKUltra

March 11, 2019

During the early years of the Cold War, the American intelligence community became extremely interested in the raw power held in being able to change and control the brains of Soviet Bloc spies and government officials. This morbid interest would turn into the CIA's Project MKUltra, one of the most famous projects ever conducted by the American government. MKUltra would see American and Canadian citizens be unknowingly dosed with LSD and other psychedelics in the name of developing powerful methods of mind control.

In this episode, Matt and Kayla finally tackle Project MKUltra, talking about the history behind the program, the involvement of the American and Canadian governments, the death of Frank Olson, and more.

The self-described "vegetarian Muslim warriors" would hear LSD-induced messages from God, who told them to rid the world of so-called "witches". This would lead the couple to killing three strangers over a period of just over two years, eventually being branded the "San Francisco Witch Killers". In the first episode in our Deadly Love series, we take a look at the lives, crimes, and the eventual capture of Michael and Suzan Bear Carson.

E50: FEMA Camps (Redux)

February 4, 2019

Conspiracy theories about FEMA Camps have existed for decades, with believers warning that Americans who are deemed to be "dissidents" could be betrayed by their government at any time and confined to forced labor and mass extermination camps. While little concrete evidence exists to back up these claims, nations around the world have infamous examples of governments turning on their own people, creating more than enough precedence to lend some legitimacy to these rumors. In celebration of our 50th episode, we re-investigate the topic of our second ever episode - FEMA Camps.

What followed was a bizarre series of events, with Kennedy not reporting the accident to police for nearly ten hours, attempting to cover-up details of what transpired on that evening, and acting in a manner that would end his chances of ever rising to the political heights of his brothers John and Robert. This week, Matt and Kayla take on the Chappaquiddick Incident, going through the official timeline of events, discussing all those involved, and dissecting the theories as to what actually happened that night.
