The Man From Taured: The Traveler Whose Country Didn’t Exist | 134

The Man From Taured: The Traveler Whose Country Didn’t Exist | 134

Ever been to Taured this time of year? It’s fabulous!! No, you haven’t? In fact you haven’t heard of it? Well, neither had the rest of the world when in July of 1954 a man in a suit shows up at a Japanese airport claiming to not only hail from the (imminently non- existent country), but produces a legit passport. Did this man unknowingly slip into a parallel dimension? Did he time travel? Or is he and/or the story absolutely full of it? This week we report, you decide on The Man From Taured. Plus, the fellas learn why we should never let Conspiracy Bot travel to parallel dimensions (could be bad), speaking of - the guys talk about the potential return of Sliders (could be good), and Conspiracy Bot again learns he is powered by Dilithium Crystals (thankfully not true). All of that and more on the podcast that’s never slid into another dimension, but we did love us some Jonathan Reese Davies on Sliders – Hysteria 51.
