Since 2013, “Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know” has released over 900 episodes. Hosts Ben Bowlin, Matt Frederick, and Noel Brown deep-dive into one topic each episode, and they are often joined by special guests. We recommend starting the series in any order with the average episode running less than 90 minutes long. Some topics are broken into a few episodes to stream in chronological order on subjects like “Union Busters,” “The JFK Episode,” and “Fast Food Conspiracies.”
When “The Coin Bureau” host Guy Turner wants a break from finance podcasts and crypto content, he told Podsauce he tunes into “Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know.” If you’re looking for a finance-based episode of this podcast, check out the episode on SWIFT, or the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications.
It was recently in the news when Europe and the U.S. announced they had removed Russian banks’ access to the system. An episode last year covered crypto, crimes, and conspiracies, like Gerald Cotten‘s story.

An episode explored the future and controversies of a unified digital ID system that would follow you everywhere and what potential dangers this ID could pose. In March, the hosts dove into Neuralink, a brain implant technology that would give people access to the cloud without interacting with computers.
For UFO-based episodes, check out “The Lonnie Zamora Incident.” In 1964, a New Mexico police officer saw something fall from the sky and stopped the high speed chase he’d been on. This episode explains how things got weird when the officer approached the crash site. Hear about Men In Black, the folks who allegedly show up at UFO witnesses’ houses to dissuade them from sharing what they’ve seen.
This podcast explores weighty subjects such as the future of poverty, the war on drugs, money laundering, and the Canadian “Highway of Tears” – a road where women have been abducted, gone missing, or been murdered for decades. If you’re a true crime fan, there are episodes discussing “Serial Killers on the Loose” and “The Doris Duke Case.” The hosts looked at Tamam Shud’s unsolved case when a well-dressed corpse washed ashore in 1948.
Classic episodes are often re-released like discussions on what happens when we die and the relationship between music and the occult. The hosts open their inboxes for “Listener Mail” episodes that jump around to different topics.
