The Disappearance of David Lang

Beyond the Fringe

In the autumn of 1880, a Tennessee famer named David Lang was walking across his field when he vanished into thin air in front of 5 witnesses.  This story is one of the most recognized and referenced in the "true mystery" genre and has been a mainstay in strange tales anthologies for decades.  But did David Lang actually disappear as the legend states, or is there more to the story?  In this episode of Beyond the Fringe we'll take an in-depth look at the mystery and the legend surrounding the Disappearance of David Lang.

Looking for Your Next Adventure - David Lang

Make:cast

David Lang, author of Zero to Maker and co-founder of OpenROV, recently decided to stop doing what he had been doing and begin looking for something new, looking for his next adventure. During a pandemic, it seems hard to think about your next adventure. Yet I suspect that many are thinking about what’s next, and preparing ourselves for a new challenge. David says it's just as scary this time as it was back when he walked into TechShop not knowing anything about being a maker. He seems to be following his interest in science and how scientists can learn from the maker movement. There is a need to encourage participation by more amateur scientists -- people who do science because it is an adventure, rather than a career.

The Strange Disappearance of David Lang and Ambrose Bierce

Fabled Collective

Folklore is usually a culmination of truth and fiction. It’s a sort of flavoring for a specific region—a mash of traditions, beliefs, and stories that are passed from one generation to the next. It can be difficult to pick apart because, with every new storyteller, there’s a new spin on the original. Multiply that by a hundred years or more, and what you get may scarcely resemble the seed of truth buried inside. Lore is obscure, its murky waters are fascinating to gaze upon… but is it safe to jump in? Perhaps a dive into the swampy waters is exactly what’s necessary to decipher the strange disappearance of David Lang, a man who vanished into thin air in Gallatin, Tennessee on September 23rd, 1880, and his bizarre connection to the disappearance of author Ambrose Bierce.Music:Trio for Piano, Cello, and Clarinet by Kevin MacLeodLink: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/4547-trio-for-piano-cello-and-clarinetLicense: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/Ghostpocalypse - 6 Crossing the Threshold Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/FabledCollective)
