We're on the road, driving the whole family from the Scablands in Washington State all the way to Texas, and stopping at lots of cool and beautiful places along the way.
We recorded this with a little handheld recorder in a sweet AirBnB cabin in Wyoming. It's raw and unedited.
Hope you all enjoy. We'll be back to regular podcasting soon!

Every once in a while we decide we need to make an episode that can serve as an "entry point" for new listeners, and also to talk about our current state of mind and ideas on all the topics we discuss, and how they're connected.
We first tried this in Episode 82, at the request of a listener. It was a good idea, and we now think we ought to do it every so often, to talk about these subjects broadly, and to work out where we stand now.
So this episode is a rambling, free-form conversation that hopefully can serve as an overview of some of the topics we explore on this podcast, and a bit about why we explore them.
Brothers of the Serpent Episode 210
Years ago we went over some of the cases in David Paulides' book, Missing 411-Western United States & Canada. Now we're tackling some of the cases in the next book, Missing 411-Eastern United States & Canada. We've chosen a specific set of cases from the book that are less well known and for the most part show a specific pattern: very young children who go missing and are found alive, days later, miles from where they disappeared. This is part 2 of that case study.
Continuing with The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson, we finish the section on the Piltdown Man discoveries and the later exposing as a very complex hoax. We then look at the details of the Beijing Man discoveries, the funding by the Rockefeller Foundation, and the methods used by the people involved to popularize this discovery when it was only a couple of teeth.
Again, it should be made clear that studying these discoveries through this book is not necessarily about trying to "disprove" evolution. It is about comparing the way the discoveries that supported the mainstream ideas about evolution were treated, versus the way that discoveries that did not support mainstream ideas, were treated.
Brothers of the Serpent Episode 203
This episode is a celebration of 200 episodes of the Brothers of the Serpent podcast. (If you're wondering why we did this on episode 201 instead of 200, it's because the podcast starts with episode 002!)
Using an extensive list of clips from older episodes, all marked and prepared by listeners, we look back at how the podcast has grown and changed, and mostly at how many dumb jokes we've made.
We're joined in studio by Marty, from the UFO episodes, as a representative of the Discord SnakeForce, and they spring a huge surprise on us during the break after the first segment.
It was amazing.
Thanks so much to all of the Snakeforce in the discord for all the support and the huge list of clip suggestions. Thanks to LP for putting all those suggestions together in a spreadsheet. Thanks to Janus for taking our picks and actually extracting all the clips for us. And thanks to everyone who participated in the super-secret channel to put together the amazing super secret secret!!
Hope you all enjoy this, and don't miss out on the special end-of-show mix! See you in the next 200 episodes!
Brothers of the Serpent Episode 201
Continuing on in what is becoming one of our most in depth and lengthy book dives, we move forward in The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson, finishing up the anomalous human remains section with some extremely anomalous finds, including well-documented and discussed sets of human-like footprint tracks in Carboniferous strata.
We then move on to Part II of the book, which details finds of ancient human remains that are well accepted in the literature and by modern science as part of the human evolutionary story, and all of the interesting and sometimes strange circumstances that surround them.
Brothers of the Serpent Episode 199
Continuing along in our exploration of The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson, we finish up the cases of anomalous objects and artifacts found in very ancient contexts, placing them as far back as 2 billion years in the most extreme case, and move on to the section on actual human remains. Most of these are bones in various states of mineralization, all of which were found in strata that makes them anomalously old for hominids with modern morphology.
Brothers of the Serpent Episode 198
We return from our Scablands trip and dive right back into The Hidden History of the Human Race by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson. We finish up the anomalous stone tools section with Sandia Cave in New Mexico and the finds in the Gold Rush mines in California, then move on to even more anomalous finds of advanced quarrying tools, embedded nails and vases, gold chains and chalk spheres, then finish up the show with the infamous Nampa Figurine, found in Idaho.
This show was streamed live to the Discord chat, which we do from time to time. so if you want to be in on that next time, join the discord! You can find a join button on our website.
