Weird U.S. Volume 3: Real Tales of the Bizarre

Loading...
Based on the best-selling book of the same name, this is a deliciously demented tour of offbeat American history. Hosts/authors Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran scour the country in search of the bizarre, the unexplained, and the really strange historical stories that never got into the history books, because, as they say, "history is full of weirdos." But let everyone be forewarned: This is a trip you may find disturbing, insightful or at the least, very strange. You may never look at history the same way again.
