Imagine this: You and your crew are traversing the Atlantic aboard your merchant ship. You spot something up ahead and grab the spyglass. Is that another ship? You call to the ship announcing your presence…no response. Is there no one aboard? Where’s the crew? You board the ship and things are silent. It’s too quiet. Something isn’t sitting right about this situation. There’s a sewing machine with a baby’s dress being sewn…the hem is still mid-stitch. The log book’s last entry? 10 days ago. Where did the crew go? What would cause them to abandon ship so abruptly without any signs of duress? Did they leave the ship willingly? What happened to the Mary Celeste – we investigate this week. Plus, David Flora of Blurry Photos Podcast makes his triumphant return once again. Conspiracy Bot pivots his game plan for Bot Booze. Brent circles back around on how C-Bot is paying for it. And we all learn that poisonous, bad-tasting, and foul-smelling are table stakes for any product the robot creates. All of that and more on the podcast that’s never discovered a ghost ship, but took a Carnival Cruise once that was almost as scary – Hysteria 51.
