The Museum of the Weird has been a place spoken of only in rumors for decades, but it wasn’t until Maxwell Keep wrote of his family’s connection to and adventures in the depository of paranormal artifacts that we had any first-person account of its existence.


Disney imaginer Rolly Crump seems to have had knowledge of this unique and frightening place, as he drew various elements of it during the design phase of the Haunted Mansion attraction. Whether Crump had first-hand knowledge of the museum or he was just somehow incredibly intuitive and/or channeling information from another dimension is unknown.

Bryan and Holly took a look at the criminal organizations throughout the Star Wars universe, from the Hutt clans and Black Sun to the Pyke Syndicate and the Rodian Junk Cartel. Although this look isn't exhaustive, it does offer an in-depth cross section of criminal activity in the galaxy.

Ripped from the pages of S. Morgenstern's tome "The Princess Bride," this episode of the show focuses on the history of Florin and Guilder. At least what we were able to piece together based on writer William Goldman's terrible cuts to the manuscript. But we have enough to tell a history that will fascinate you, from the Tuna Fish Discrepancy all the way to the most recent war between the two nations, this is an episode you won't want to miss.
