Why are these podcasts ending abruptly? They end with no warning and next thing you know you're listening to a new episode.

Chad Dunn I think it's good that they suggest their new shows. I've picked up some good podcasts that I otherwise would not have found had I not heard it on an existing show. Open your mind to new things and get out of your box.

love the show and the narration. the jfk assassination was disappointing tho. most americans dont believe the nonsense of the official story so why are we sticking with it here when it s a blatant lie. it made me wonder if some of the other assassinations covered were just the drummed up government nonsense or what actually happened.
