Falken's Maze: An 80s Guide to History

The Imp of the Perverse

Episode Summary

In this one shot episode we explore the border between the real and the fake. Between fact and fiction. Between the ghostly paranormal world that we’re going to spend the next few weeks talking about and the concrete, solid world we all think we live in.

Created for listeners nostalgic for the 80s but who also want to understand the complexities of today, our show demystifies the world's most compelling technologies and events through 80's movies, music, and television.
