Episode 17 Sources: “Soviet Union Spring Break 1959: The Dyatlov Pass Incident”

Happy New Year, Spooky People! Winter is here and since we’re hunkering down for a cold couple of months, we think there’s no better time to discuss the mysterious, snowy deaths that occurred at Dyatlov Pass. In our first episode of 2021, we challenge some of the most popular theories surrounding the demise of nine hikers on February 2, 1959. We cover a handful of possibilities, from avalanches and hypothermia to aliens and government conspiracies. If this story leaves you scratching your head, you are not alone.
