If you’re like us, you couldn’t focus on the two leads duking it out in Godzilla vs. Kong… because you just kept thinking, “Wait, they said ‘Hollow Earth’ just now, right? Like, ‘The Hollow Earth,’ like it’s a place?”
This week, Sean takes us through the history of people thinking the Earth has a big ol’ hole in the middle of it… and maybe several more Earths inside, too, while we’re at it? From the pseudoscientific musings of a Royal Astronomer to a New York doctor turned messianic cult leader, we introduce you to the guys who were ranting and raving about the Hollow Earth before Kong made it cool.
