Sometimes it feels like technology is everywhere in our lives. Like it's omnipresent and the only way we'll truly escape it is when we cash in our chips and head to the big casino in the sky (shameless Jimmy Eat World reference). But what if that isn't true...what if we're still techies in the great beyond? In November of 2011 a man by the name of Jack Froese sent a few emails to friends and loved ones. The catch? Jack had been dead for 6 months. Did he really send them? Could they have been sent before his death? What's the download speed in Heaven? This week we try to hack the internet of the afterlife as we explore The Jack Froese Emails. Plus, Conspiracy Bot makes the case that he's a superhero (he isn't). Kyle tried to be helpful (he isn't). And Brent has a realization that he needs to listen to John more (he isn't). All of that and more on the podcast that gets 100’s of emails every day, and only a handful are from dead people – Hysteria 51.
