Episode 17 – The Italians Who Stole Christmas

The second holiday special! Saint Nicholas is one of Catholicism’s most honored Saints, a figure who would go on to inspire the folkloric character known as Santa Claus. But this Saint did not enjoy a peaceful rest in death. In 1087, an ambitious cabal of Italian sailors decided to rob his tomb in a get-rich-quick controversy that, 1,000 years later, remains unresolved. Merry Christmas!

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.
