Episode 22 – It Belongs in a Museum! The Pages of History



Content Warning: A short, non-descriptive mention of a sexual assault in a historical context.

Because of the efforts of scribes and scholars, we are still able to take a look into the past and know where we came from. But for all of the books that changed history, there are countless others that held knowledge now lost to the ages. Such tomes included: inventions that question what we thought we know of ancient civilization, the true story behind one of the most notorious poets who ever lived, and even a book that shaped the English langage…a book that may have never even existed in the first place! In this episode, Relic and the crew of the Frankenpod examine a few famous titles that you’ll never get to read.

Episode 15 – It Belongs in a Museum! Back From Extinction



In this last episode of our mid-season “It Belongs in a Museum!” series, we are joined by Kate Shaw of Strange Animals Podcast. An animal species is considered extinct when it hasn’t been identified in the wild after 50 years. What happens when eyewitness testimony, and photographic evidence, challenges what we once thought about certain bygone species? Something is out there…

For this episode, Relic is calling attention to three important charities that are, quite literally, saving the Earth:

Hispanic Federation UNIDOS – for Hurricane Relief in Puerto Rico

Rainforest Alliance 

National Resources Defense Council

Episode 14 – It Belongs in a Museum! Are You My Mummy?



Welcome to the mid-season! In this installment of Relic’s “It Belongs in a Museum” series…we get weird. Comedian and anthropologist Jake Sully tells us all about the Peking Man– the fossilized remains of an ancient, common ancestor to homo sapiens. Who was the Peking Man and where did he end up? Also, Max looks into the strange tale of the San Pedro Mummy, and journeys further down the rabbit hole into the wild world of mummified discoveries believed (by some) to be alien in origin.

Episode 8 – It Belongs in a Museum! Lost Films



Joined by special guest, Robert Jenner of The Fan Film Boyz podcast, this episode is something a little different. We take a look at the weird and wild history of lost film, covering everything from a movie so terrible that Jerry Lewis took it to his grave, to that time Batman fought Dracula, and maybe a movie that never even existed….at least, not in this parallel universe.
