The Whatnauts

Episode 1 - The Black Tapes

Episode Summary

Welcome to very first episode of The Whatnauts! It's a weekly podcast about all sorts of cool things from comic books, video games, movies, tv, and so much more. Think of it like a book club, but with more awesome! Kyle Springer and Paul Kang are your hosts, and this week we listened to season 1 of The Black Tapes podcast by Pacific Northwest Stories and Minnow Beats Whale. The Black Tapes tells the story of Alex Regan, a journalist and podcast host who stumbles head first into the world of ghost hunting. While interviewing many experts in the field, one name keeps coming up, Dr. Richard Strand. Alex gets in touch with Dr. Strand, a ghost hunter skeptic who adamantly disproves any case he gets. All of Dr. Strands solved cases are put away neatly in white cases on a bookshelf, but Alex notices a small section of black tapes that Dr. Strand guards closely. What are the Black tapes and what do they mean to Dr. Strand? Alex Regan investigates and finds herself deeper and deeper into a world scarier than she once knew.
