Sometimes nature's rules don't apply. Paranormal phenomena defy physics. Living beings defy death. Substances and materials defy their own make-up. And sometimes random holes in the Pacific Northwest do all of the above! At least that's the story according to Mel Waters about his aptly named "Mel's Hole". Where exactly is the hole? Does it really contain supernatural powers? Can it bring creatures back from the dead? Is Gordon Freeman's story from Half-Life actually a true story? We tie a rope to our ankle and dive into Mel's Hole this week. Plus, Conspiracy Bot refuses to concede the election (no surprise), Kyle makes a valid and salient point during a discussion (that is a surprise), and he then promptly overheats and shuts down (there it is). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never brought an animal back to life by throwing it down a bottomless pit – we do it the old fashioned way, by burying it on old Indian burial grounds in New England - Hysteria 51.
