416 - The Tunguska event

At 7:14 AM on the 30th of June, 1908 there was an enormous explosion affecting more than 100 square km of pine forest near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in central Siberia. What caused this mysterious explosion? And are there lots of wild theories? Tune in to hear guest reporter Alasdair Tremblay-Birchall explain! This is the second episode of Block 2023!

This is a comedy/history podcast, the report begins at approximately 00:04:23 (though as always, we go off on tangents throughout the report).
