Episode 9: The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy

Episode 9 is our second truly historic episode, and our first assassination: that of Robert F. Kennedy.

It was June 5th, 1968, when Robert F. Kennedy was addressing his supporters in a ballroom at The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California. After finishing his speech he was escorted through the kitchen — a supposed shortcut to the press room — and it’s there that he was mortally wounded by Sirhan Sirhan, a 24-year-old Palestinian man. These are the facts.

The question to this day still remains: why was RFK shot? Did Sirhan Sirhan work alone? Was he the subject of mind control experiments? All of these questions and more are in episode 9…

Episode 1: Mothman

In this very first episode of Unknowable we dove in with one of our very favorite cryptids: THE MOTHMAN.

We primarily focused on the years 1966 and 1967 when the Mothman was terrorizing Point Pleasant, West Virginia, but we also went a bit into other sightings around the world and throughout history, including Chernobyl (where it was referred to as the “Blackbird of Chernobyl”) and even an alleged sighting (and photograph!) during the World Trade Center terrorist attack on 9/11.

We also touched a bit on the unusual government agents and “men in black” that were seen around Point Pleasant during, and following, the Mothman sightings, as well as bizarre premonitions and dreams that some residents had that seemed to predict the collapse of the Silver Bridge, which resulted in the deaths of 46 people.

We had fun speculating on whether the Mothman is indeed a bizarre mutation of an existing animal due to faulty storage of TNT, a man wearing a jetpack and night vision goggles (nope, stop, don’t even suggest that to us), or perhaps just a sad, misunderstood cryptid who is trying his best to warn us of impending doom. Tune in to hear about a topic that we are super passionate about — maybe you’re hearing about the Mothman for the first time, or maybe you’re also a fan, but either way we hope you learn something new!
