Straight-Up Enigmas is a podcast with episodes released each Tuesday. On the show, we explore the biggest enigmas—anything mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand—from both the past and the present. We’ll discuss ancient riddles, ghost stories, unsolved murders, cold cases, and modern-day mysteries. Each episode will cover the paranormal, supernatural, tragic, and just plain weird stuff going on around us. Listen in each week as we try our hand at solving some of these straight-up enigmas.
This podcast (and website) were created by me, Jaden McKell. I was born in a very green, humid part of Texas but raised in the beautiful and dry Wasatch Valley of Utah. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in English Education at Brigham Young University of Provo where I met my amazing husband, Eric. Eric and I currently live in the Midwest, and we enjoy the broad horizons and breathtaking sunsets it has to offer.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a fascination with the unknown. Anything from ghost stories to murder mysteries to aliens have always led me to ask questions, and I love to share stories with others. If anything, I created this podcast as a way for people to come together to discuss the mysteries of the world and to share their stories. If you’ve had something happen to you that you just can’t explain, please send me your experience by going to the “Contact” tab from the drop-down menu. I’d love to hear your story, and I’m sure everyone else would too.
