“History is a version of past events that people have decided to agree upon," Napoleon Bonaparte once famously said. In other words, there are many sides to every story. WHAT REALLY HAPPENED? chronicles documentarian Andrew Jenks as he examines and contextualizes famous figures and historical events, while discovering untold stories and unraveling newfound narratives. With today’s technology, access to information, the ability to communicate from all parts of the globe, and cross-reference historians, Jenks takes on his own rogue investigations. He does not go down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories, nor does the show purport to solve every historical mystery. Instead, Jenks often times throws a wrench in the gears of history, getting either closer to the truth or creating more questions. WHAT REALLY HAPPENED is executive produced by Seven Bucks Productions’ Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia and Brian Gewirtz, Andrew Jenks and Cadence13.
||CleanNO, THANK YOU SAM||Before he even won his second championship, Michael Jordan wasn’t just the best basketball player in the league, he also had the perfect image. But then in 1992, a book came out, ‘The Jordan Rules’, and the public and media couldn't believe it - Jordan was human. About a year later, he retired. But why did he leave the game in his prime? Was it a secret suspension? Did he really want to play minor league baseball? Could any of the conspiracy theories be true?||11/15/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWITHOUT A VOICE||Did everyone miss the true nature of Britney Spears’ ‘meltdown’? Now, 10 years later, there is growing attention being paid to a little known legal concept that Spears is under, called a ‘conservatorship’. This episode takes a look at exactly what happened to Britney Spears on February 18th, the day of her infamous head-shaving incident. And, since a series of ensuing missteps, and triumphs, over the years, Jenks will question if she’ll forever forego the right to even get a cup of coffee without permission from her father and lawyer.||11/8/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanTHE TALK||In 1981, on a 9th floor building and in front of hundreds of people, Muhammad Ali talked a 21- year-old out of committing suicide. The story ran the following evening in front of 36 million people on the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite. But with new sources and information, Jenks questions if this was a concocted event, devised by Ali himself.||10/25/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

Andrew Jenks really did his homework presenting all sides to the Ali story, unearthing interviews and evidence never heard or seen before. I love how he provides the background and evidence supporting all sides of the story and leaves it up to the listener to decide for themselves what really happened. Production quality is top notch and kept me engaged for the entirety. Lookin forward to future episodes!
