117 – Away Game: The Hollow Earth – Fact or Fiction?

Episode 117 – In this away game Mike and Scott explore the wacky world of the origins of Hollow Earth movement. We hear about Captain John Cleves Symmes Jr‘s desires for an expedition to the hole in the North Pole, Cyrus Reed Teed‘s Hollow Earth cult in Florida and Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd‘s supposed secret journey into the hidden world filled with fanatical creatures and advanced aliens within the Antarctic continent.

NOTE: Scott’s audio is a little wonky as he had to record on location to maintain social distance.
