What is Unresolved?
Unresolved is an storytelling podcast that focuses on all varieties of “unresolved” stories: whether they be unsolved crimes, unexplained phenomenons, or any kind of story that lacks an ending. Because of the subject matter, the podcast often veers into unexpected territory, but always tries to keep the focus on the human side of the story.
Where can the podcast be found?
Unresolved can be found on most podcast apps and websites (iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, Google Play, iHeartRadio, Podcast Addict, etc.). In addition, each episode is posted on its applicable page (click on the “Stories” button above to find specific episodes).
The podcast is hosted on Spreaker. If you cannot find the podcast on any given app or site, please contact us and we'll try to remedy the situation ASAP.
What is Unresolved Productions?
Unresolved Productions is the parent company of Unresolved. Like the podcast, it is founded by Micheal Whelan, and hopes to give the podcast most flexibility (including branching out into several spin-off projects).
What is Hoax?
Hoax is a side-project of Unresolved Productions, which focuses on - you guessed it - hoaxes. These are stories of intriguing deceptions, which vary between humorous and malicious.
Hoax is (hopefully) just the first of many side-projects for Unresolved Productions, which will feature shorter seasons, but highlight stories just as interesting as those covered on Unresolved… just without the mystery aspect.
Why make a website?
Well, honestly, I avoided it for a good amount of time. But a website allows me to share material that I simply can't in a podcast: things like pictures, images, videos, etc. So I'm going to be posting all of that material in the "Stories" section. There, you'll not only be able to find the transcript of each episode, but relevant sources, links, etc.
Can I support the podcast?
Absolutely! Unresolved has contributed to a number of fundraisers for missing persons organizations and efforts, as well as helping organize missing persons billboards in the Augusta, GA region (more info HERE).

Can I submit a topic for the podcast to cover?
Absolutely! However, please remember that these episodes take a good amount of time to research and prepare, so it's very likely that we won't get around to it for some time. But, suggestions are always encouraged, and it doesn't hurt to try!
Who is the host?
The host of the podcast is just a regular guy named Micheal Whelan. Some of his fondest childhood memories are staying home from school - while either sick or just faking it - and being able to watch reruns of "Unsolved Mysteries" with Robert Stack. He attended Washington State University, where he studied broadcast journalism in the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication, but had no professional journalistic experience before Unresolved. However, he strives to give each story its proper amount of time and respect.
Personally, he is married to a wonderful and supportive wife, who is able to endure long rants about creepy and macabre subjects. The two have a couple of furry friends (Rocky and Bullwinkle), and Micheal spends way too much time on the internet.
