Is there treasure on Oak Island?

Hello there, folks. Chuck Bryant here reporting from HSW.com HQ in Atlanta, Georgia. I know I promised to not mention the weather until something changed and low and behold, that's happened. It's actually cooled down ever so slightly here over the past day or so. We're talking manageable heat though, it's not exactly fall sweeping through. But I'll take it. This week on the Stuff You Should Know podcast program, Dr. Clark and myself talked about a couple of things -- one that many people are well acquainted with and one that's a little more, shall we say, mysterious.
