There isn't much we know about Atlantis (including whether it actually existed or not). And the few things we think we DO know are steeped in Greek lore. But what if Atlantis DID exist and wasn't anywhere near Greece? What if it were on an entirely different continent? This week Adam Poston of The Twisted Ten joins the fellas and makes the case that a geologic structure in modern day Mauritania is actually the ancient ruins of Atlantis. Plus, Conspiracy Bot starts reading the encyclopedia (we didn't know he could read either). Brent tells us why Atlanta holds a special place in his heart (hint: it's not the weather). And John makes inane jokes about Ancient Greek philosophers (we wish we were joking). All of that and more on the podcast that isn’t sure where Atlantis actually was...we didn’t have an altimeter when we visited - Hysteria 51.
