Since ancient times, the vast Lake Baikal has been known as deeply mysterious, but in the closing years of the Soviet era, and since, it has been the location of a number of alleged sightings of aliens and UFOs. Even more, sightings of bizarre beings who have come to be known as the Lake Baikal Swimmers. Nine-foot-tall silver-clad beings who have been sighted swimming in the frigid waters unflinchingly. Initially these were covered-up by the authorities of the USSR, but later they were revealed by the Russian media. Join us as we discuss some of the most shocking experiences around this ancient and truly massive lake and attempt to get to the bottom of the bizarre phenomena that has become its weirdest claim to fame.
