Episode 240 LIVE: The Disappearance of the Sodder Children

Back in 1945, a devastating house fire broke out on Christmas Eve at the home of the Sodder family in West Virginia. Despite their best efforts, parents George and Jennie Sodder were unable to save five of their ten children from the flames…or so they thought. As strange evidence began to mount, the Sodders became convinced that not only had the blaze at their home been deliberately set, but also that whoever was behind the crime had spirited the five children away before the flames could consume them. The tragic and eerie tale remains an unsolved mystery to this day, so put on your deerstalker hats and get ready to follow the clues with Tom and Jenny on a LIVE episode 240.

Episode 238 LIVE: The Disappearance of D.B. Cooper

On today’s daring installment, Tom and Jenny finally get around to discussing one of the most famous heists — and mysterious disappearances — in American history. In 1971, a man calling himself Dan Cooper hijacked a Boeing 727 aircraft mid-flight and subsequently jumped out of the plane with a parachute and $200,000 in ransom money, never to be seen again. Did the later-dubbed D.B. Cooper survive his audacious jump, and if so, where did he go? Strap into your chutes and get ready to skydive into the dark skies of intrigue on a LIVE episode 238. Sorry the video version is in 4 parts; the stream was being an asshole again. Sigh.

Episode Eighty-Three: Flannan Isles Lighthouse and the Death of Elisa Lam

We’re talking about two creepy unsolved mysteries on today’s long, slightly drunken, tangent-filled installment! First up (well, about eighteen minutes into the show, haha), we discuss the infamous disappearance of three lighthouse keepers from Flannan Isles Lighthouse in the Outer Hebrides in 1900. Were they swept away by a freak wave, did some foul play befall them, or were they spirited away by ghosts or sea monsters? On our second segment, we talk about the tragic events of early 2013, when a young woman named Elisa Lam went missing from her LA hotel, and worries about her fate mounted after some eerie elevator footage showed her behaving in a very strange fashion. Days later, her body was found in a large water tank on the hotel’s roof. Was she the victim of murder, suicide, or a tragic accident? Or was there some other even more sinister reason for her bizarre death? All this, plus a fun news story about people’s Amazon Alexas seemingly becoming possessed by dark forces, and digressions about the Mammoth Mountain poltergeist, sexbots, the universal Krusselsphere, why you should never go in the ocean for any reason, and much more! Dive into the murky and mysterious waters of the unknown with Tom and Jenny, on episode 83 of 13 O’Clock.
