When it comes to history, how do you separate fact from fiction?
Based on the best-selling book, this deliciously demented tour of offbeat American history scours the country in search of the bizarre, unexplained, and really weird stories that never made it into schoolbooks. In this episode, hosts Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran examine if history books are correct when they claim that President Warren Harding died of a heart attack. Was it really foul play? Did the CIA actually spend millions of taxpayer dollars in the 1970s and '80s on psychic research? Did Aaron Burr try to set up his own country in the American Southwest? Sometimes there are stories from history that sound so outrageous they can't be true...but are. Some stories are said to be truth, but are out and out lies. Our two Marks investigate some of the strangest stories they've ever heard, and realize just because something is weird doesn't mean it isn't true. Mark and Mark want to find out: When it comes to history, how do you separate fact from fiction?
