In 2016, a documentarian named Markus Tronque disappeared. The last person he was seen with was his nemesis, Michael Moore.

Back in 1989, Tronque was in Mexico filming a documentary about the urban myth of a rat-found-in-a-coke-bottle. Suddenly a 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit, trapping him in a collapsed building. Amidst the rubble he meets Daisy Phipps, a young woman who would change the course of his life forever.

Morgan Pickles introduces this bizarre mystery centered around Markus Tronque, the man who wasn’t Michael Moore.

Episode features: Matt Walsh, Horatio Sanz, Joe Nuñez, Madeline Walter, and Brad Morris
