Publishing twice a month, Unexplained: Explained is a video companion piece to the the podcast, in which Richard MacLean Smith will share his thoughts on the previous episode, as well as answers questions sent in by listeners regarding the episode, or anything else for that matter…

Unexplained is a haunting and unsettling bi-weekly podcast about strange and mysterious real life events that continue to evade explanation.

A story-based show mixing spoken-word narrative, history and ideas - often to terrifying effect - that explores the space between what we think of as real and what is not; where sometimes belief can be as concrete as ‘reality,’ whatever that is…

Unexplained is also a book, published in 2018 (due out in the US & Can in Oct 2019), featuring ten new stories that have not been covered on the podcast. Available here

To everyone that has taken their time to listen to the show, none of this is worth anything without you.  For those who have been kind enough to support us as well, thank you so much for helping to keep Unexplained alive and I hope to continue justifying your support for as long as I can!
