Our Weird World

Our Weird World

Each week, host John Hinson takes a look at weird, crazy, and forgotten stories from the history of humankind. He covers true crime, paranormal, and other strange stories and tries to put some humor into it, or maybe he's just an apathetic dick - that's up to you to decide.
