What do you do when you find a ship adrift at sea? The obvious answer is to make sure it doesn’t explode. Unfortunately the folks that came upon the S. S. Ourang Medan didn’t heed our clarion call from the future. Instead they hopped aboard and investigated this ghost ship. They came aboard to find the entirely to the crew dead. When the investigating captain finally decided to tie ‘er up and toe ‘er back…that’s then the suspect ghost ship decided to explode and sink. What was actually aboard? What does cyanide taste like? This week we throw on our life preservers and find out. Plus, Brent makes a ”Jon Boat” joke (we’re sorry), we decide red shirts likely do need to be the losers of the away team (call us Riker), and the fellas get some help from an unlikely place…Kevin Crispin! And the host of the extremely popular podcast Hillbilly Horror Stories – Mr Jerry Paulley also joins the show. All of that and more on the podcast that’s never found a ghost ship drifting at sea, but we loved the movie Ghost Ship - Hysteria 51.
