Brent Hand from the Hysteria 51 Podcast judges this episode of the unexplained between 1977, 1988 & 1995!

For months, Brent Hand of Hysteria 51 fame has been requesting to be a judge on an episode of Dueling Decades. The guys love having him as a contestant so much that they were reluctant to pull the trigger on Brent sitting on the other side of the bench. Well, they finally came to their senses and decided to give Brent a crack at swinging the gavel. And since Hysteria 51 covers all things unexplained, they figured it would probably be most fitting to focus the entire episode around the genre of - The Unexplained! So you may hear about ghosts, missing persons, the occult, demons, aliens, slashers, and whatever else they could fit within the unexplained! Our first contestant this week hails from the great white north, Joe Findlay of Miscast Commentary brought whatever unexplained oddities from 1995 that he could unearth. Mancrush is back, minus his favorite shirt that is. After getting shutout for the first time ever, that shirt ended up becoming a pile of ash! Mancrush is out for blood this week, with the unexplained of 1988. Rounding out the competition, Marc James once again had to dig way back into the 70s to conjure up the unexplained of 1977!

While none of them will ever be Robert Stack, they try their best to be! Brent uses his Hysteria 51 experience to decide which decade takes this unexplained battle royale, and it comes right down to the wire. In this episode, you just may hear about demonic dolls, clairvoyants that couldn't see their own deaths, Mancrush sees a UFO, the best fight scene in cinematic history, Tobe Hooper brings an origin story to syndication, a 32-year-old sealed package is unveiled LIVE, a board game no one will remember, Joe mystifies with some bootleg Harry Potter, vanishing TV anchors, a transmission that will make you go wow, movies that put Mancrush to sleep, a criminal with a limp, classic science fiction, Richard Dreyfuss just can't catch a break, a soundtrack with a lot of yelling, a song that you might not expect is about aliens, and which toy movie fits this episode's narrative better?
