Phantom Time

Ep 213: Phantom Time

Phantom Time
This date in miss-tory…

Toss the old history books in the trash and Forget what you know about the Dark Ages, the years have vanished as phantom time! A historical conspiracy centering on the early Middle Ages, phantom time is the theory that 300 years of history never actually existed. The proponents of this theory list several compelling reasons why the centuries never happened. Not even the famous European icon Charlemagne is safe in this one. A pope and two emperors are said to be the culprits behind it, and a few German researchers and scholars have seemingly caught them red-handed. How can history as we know it be wrong? What would be involved in making 300 years disappear? And is such a thing even possible? Find out in this history-laced episode! Also stick around for the winner of the 2018 Miss Cryptid Contest and the drawing for the sweepstakes!
