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 2 – Mandate of Heaven



For over a thousand years, whoever held the Heirloom Seal of the Realm, held the power over the nation of China. The dynastic Emperors used the jade seal to enact the laws that would shape Chinese history for generations–and many died by its decree. Did the Imperial Seal vanish with the dynasties? Was it stolen during revolt? Or does someone–knowingly or unknowingly–have it in their private collection?

Music in this episode comes from several brilliant artists via YouTube, including Derek Fiechter, Teresa Tan, and Jess D.
