Episode 35 – Relic Down Under: The Mystery of the Min Min Lights



We’re back, folks! Sarah from Good Nightmare joins me on the first of several mid-season episodes on Australian mysteries. Strange lights in the outback have been reported since before the arrival of white settlers. Are the Min Min Lights a natural phenomena, or something paranormal?

While you wait for Relic to come back, you can hear me Thursdays on Sydney’s community radio station 2ser 107.3 where I produce and co-produce the segments: Vegemite Pizza and Five-Minute Mysteries.

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 5 – The Ballad of Lasseter’s Gold



In 1931, a mysterious gentleman named Harold Bell Lasseter convinced the Australian Worker’s union to mount an expedition into the continent’s interior. Their goal was to survey a vein of gold, nearly seven miles long. After the quest ended in disaster, all that remained of Lasseter’s reef was a whole lot of doubt, rumors, and speculation. Who really was H.B. Lasseter? Did his fabled gold even exist? And more importantly, how many Kylie Minogue lyrics can I fit into a single episode?

Theme be Devin. Background music from Purple Planet and Derek Fiechter.
