The Green Children of Woolpit: Multidimensional Travelers or Broccoli Addicts? | 132

The Green Children of Woolpit: Multidimensional Travelers or Broccoli Addicts? | 132

Picture this - you’re working in a field and quite suddenly 2 children appear out of seemingly nowhere. These kids not only don’t speak a language you’ve ever heard, but they’re skin is...GREEN. This might sound like the beginning of an episode of Black Mirror, but it isn’t. It’s an alleged real-life incident from 12th century England. Who were these kids? Where did they come from? Is this the first written proof of multidimensional travel or the first written proof of a broccoli overdose? This week we jump back over the pond and look into the curious case of the Green Children from Woolpit. Plus, Conspiracy Bot gets subpoenaed for the first time (really, that's the first time?). Brent could be facing jail time for the first time (again, we're surprised). And Bot Booze could finally be coming to an end (finally!). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never met any green children, but that could be due to the restraining order (thanks C-Bot) - Hysteria 51.
