  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - The Crystal Skulls - Episode 261

    14/03/2021 Duración: 55min

    It's a staple of popular culture and a fun story. Multiple crystal carved stones are discovered throughout Mexico and South America. The Crystal Skulls supposedly have mystical powers and perhaps ties to extraterrestrials. There are 13 of them. Any or none of this may be true. The story of the crystal skulls are one of those tales about an intriguing object that popular culture latched onto for some reason. Let's discover the true story of the crystal skulls.

  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - The Baltic Sea Anomaly - Episode 260

    07/03/2021 Duración: 36min

    We enter our mythical museum of curiosities again and this time travel beneath the Baltic Sea to find something very strange. Again, this object isn't a work of fiction, nor is it something ethereal. It is a real existing thing that can be studied... but what is it? Of all the structures of unusual nature that are talked about, this one has gone under the radar but I find it one of the most fascinating. It certainly appears as though there is a crashed UFO under the Baltic Sea.

  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - The Pyramids - Episode 259

    28/02/2021 Duración: 55min

    This week we enter our mythical museum of curiosities to examine one of the oldest and largest structures on planet Earth- the Great Pyramid. For over 3000 years the Great Pyramid at Giza was the tallest structure on the planet. Despite the fact we can still see and study these massive structures today, there is still much that isn't known about them and much that is still debated. It's not only one of the most grand structures in history but one of the most mysterious as well.

  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - The Mask - Episode 258

    21/02/2021 Duración: 51min

    One of the most ancient rituals mankind still engages in is the creation and wearing of masks. Since the oldest civilizations, humans have concealed their identities for rituals, for war, to commit crimes, and for celebrations and sports. In today's society we are wearing masks for health purposes. But we also use them in movies, sports, and more. The hockey mask, the medical mask, the decorative mask, movie monster mask, the lucha libre and wrestling, mask, and mask used for crime. DragonKing Dark Podcast looks at humanities fascination with masks.

  • Thrash Metal Show Podcast - Slayer South of Heaven Part 1 - Episode 91

    15/02/2021 Duración: 37min

    NoFriender has wined and dined with kings and queens and slept in alleys and kept on sleepin'. Occasionally waking up to eat something but mostly sleeping. And doing nothing. While the boys are in the back, laughin' and jokin', NoFriender's out back causally sauntering through life, not really doing much. Especially recording new material. Sometimes he thinks, "Hey, I have a podcast on the popular When It Was Cool Podcast Network, perhaps I should tend to that..." But, nah. Fishin' or something. Here's a new show about Slayer I guess. I put as much effort into listening to it as he did getting around to recording it.

  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - Cursed Car of James Dean - Episode 257

    14/02/2021 Duración: 44min

    On this edition of the DragonKing Dark Podcast, we continue our look at objects of mystery and power and dig into a legend of Americana- the car in which actor James Dean was killed. The legend says he wasn't the last person killed by the car as parts from it were used in other cars in which people died. Even the tow truck driver couldn't escape it's wrath. Also, where is the car now? The incredible story of the death car of James Dean.

  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - The Ancient of Days - Episode 255

    31/01/2021 Duración: 49min

    We return to our metaphorical museum of curiosities this week for a very curious object indeed. Spoken of only in passing in the Bible but in greater detail in Khabbalic literature, we examine The Ancient of Days. The Ancient of Days seems to be a device of some sort which had to be assembled and cleaned in a specific manner during the Biblical Exodus. One author believed the device to be a machine which produced manna. He then built a working model based on the text and produced food with it. What is the strange Ancient of Days?

  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - Shroud of Turin - Episode 254

    24/01/2021 Duración: 42min

    This episode we enter our mythical museum of curiosities and find a real object that can be periodically seen and studied- the Shroud of Turin. Many Christians over the centuries have revered this cloth as the burial shroud of Jesus Christ. The reason? A faint, but distinct image of a man is somehow visible on the cloth with evidence of injuries to the areas one would expect from a man crucified. There is conflicting evidence concerning the dating of the shroud and the Catholic Church, despite revering the shroud, has yet to officially venerate it. Let's examine the Shroud of Turin.

  • DragonKing Dark - The Dendera Lights - Episode 253

    17/01/2021 Duración: 46min

    There is a carving in the ancient Egyptian temple of Dendera that seems, on first sight, to show an Egyptian holding a giant light bulb. The image is striking and seems obvious which begs the question: What were the ancient Egyptians doing with an electric light bulb? Is the explanation that simple? Come inside the DragonKing Dark museum of curiosities and let's examine this seemingly out of place artifact and let's try to determine what is really going on here. This week let's discuss the Dendera Lights.

  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - Helmet of Fate - Episode 252

    10/01/2021 Duración: 48min

    We return to our mythical museum of curiosities again this week looking at objects of mystery and power and examine a fictional object this time - The Helmet of Fate. Though the Helmet of Fate is a fictional object of comics and television it tells us something about our fascination with magic, ancient Egypt, and forbidden knowledge. The stories of Dr. Fate and mystical helmet reflect other stories from literature and tells us something about a world beyond our ability to see.

  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - Antikythera Mechanism - Episode 251

    03/01/2021 Duración: 58min

    Join host Karl Stern as we open the museum of curiosities again this week and pull out an actual real artifact. An artifact that we can really see in a museum, study, and make models of: the Antikythera Mechanism. The Antikythera Mechanism is a vastly complex analog computing device dating to presumably 200 BC or earlier with hugely complicated gears and switches that track celestial movements, eclipses, and more, sometimes down to the very hour. The lost wisdom of our ancestors is astonishing and this artifact seems out of place in the timeline. Let's talk about it.

    DragonKing Dark returns relaunched and rebranded with a new focus. It's DragonKing Dark 2.0 and we are now curators of a massive and mythical museum of curiosity. Some items are real and some imagined and some are something in between. But all the items and objects we will study tell us something about who we are, what we believe, what we imagine, and speak to our fears and hopes. Today, we study the best theories and ideas about the Biblical Ark of the Covenant. What was it and where might it be? Join us for the new DragonKing Dark Podcast.

  • DragonKing Dark - Night of the Bullshido - Episode 248

    13/12/2020 Duración: 45min

    This week on DragonKing Dark we continue our countdown to episode 250 where we will be starting a new fresh season of our podcast. This week we present to you a Patreon special called Night of the Bullshido, where host Karl Stern takes a look into the fictional world of not so effective martial arts. We look at some martial arts "masters" who claim fantastic or supernatural powers and look at how this scam became so widespread, especially in the 1970s and 1980s. Grab your nunchucks and ninja stars and let's go defend our style and school.

    06/12/2020 Duración: 01h31min

    We conclude our seven deadly sins series this week by examining gluttony and the sin that Karl thinks is the most sinister of them all- pride. Are these "sins" simply religious dogma or is there honest truth in avoiding them? We examine these questions and more in this bonus size edition of DragonKing Dark Podcast.

  • DragonKing Dark Podcast - Seven Deadly Sins: Envy and Greed - Episode 246

    29/11/2020 Duración: 01h28min

    The second of our three part series on the seven deadly sins takes a look at two vices that go hand in hand: envy and greed. While they may seem like one and same they actually, together, cover a multitude of emotions that cause tremendous trouble for people. From Black Friday fist fights over towels, to theft, envy and greed have caused humankind a lot of trouble.
