In a world where rational, scientific explanations are more available than ever, belief in the unprovable and irrational is on the rise: from Atlantis to the Loch Ness monster, the list is endless. The more our maps of the known world get filled in, the more we crave mysterious locations full of strange creatures.

Enter Colin Dickey, Cultural Historian and Tour Guide of the Weird.

Dickey visits the wacky sights of America's wildest beliefs, investigating how these theories comes about, why they take hold, and why as Americans we keep inventing and reinventing them decade after decade.
