A new podcast promises to take a deep dive into history’s most mysterious societies as well as some of the bizarre conspiracies attached to them.
Parcast, which releases a serial killer podcast every Monday, will debut its "Secret Societies" podcast on Thursday, Jan 9. The podcast promises to “shine a light on history’s most exclusive organizations" with a new episode each Thursday.
“From the Illuminati and the Black Hand to the Order of the Nine Angles and the Hellfire Club — we’ll explore the impact each society actually had on the world around them” as well as the “diabolical beliefs and radical actions you were never supposed to know,” the show’s trailer promises.
The show will be hosted by Vanessa Richardson and Greg Polcyn, who regularly host Parcast’s “Serial Killers” podcast.
“They operate in the shadows, in tombs, silently pulling the strings of global power,” Richardson says in the trailer of the secret societies they will be discussing on the show.
“Their rituals and practices are tightly guarded, known only to the loyal few,” Polcyn ominously states. “They take blood oaths, hold black masses, and consume drugs to reach altered states of consciousness.”
The two hosts promise to explore the effects that each of the secret societies has had on the larger society as a whole as well “all the facts [their] research can verify."
“We’ll try to parse what’s real and what’s rumor,” Polcyn states. Among the conspiracy theories that will be discussed is a possibly staged moon landing and Nazi-associated aliens.
Listeners can tune in for free on Spotify Thursday when the podcast drops.
