Episode 26 – Season Finale Part 2: Blood of the Grail

The adventure comes to a conclusion with Relic’s season finale.

No other lost treasure has captivated the minds of artists and treasure hunters alike than the Holy Grail. Said to have been the goblet that Jesus drank from at the Last Supper, it is an object of alleged immense power, rivaled only by its companion treasure, the Spare of Destiny. Where are these two sacred artifacts, if anywhere, and what did the Nazis want with them?

Episode 25 – Season Finale Part 1: Brood of the Gods

The first part of Relic’s season finale! If you’ve watched any science fiction or adventure movie in the last 20 years, you may be aware of a certain fantasy/sci fi trope: Nazis channeling the forces of the paranormal to help satisfy their goals. The truth behind the lore is, as they say, stranger than fiction. In this episode, find out how fringe belief, ancient mythology, and modern pseudoscience, came together to form a tyrannical and genocidal movement.
