Episode 68: Doug describes repeat encounters with a short, hair-covered creature he named Brownie. Was it an albatwitch? Doug saw the same creature multiple times when he was a child and then, again, many years later and hundreds of miles away, as an adult. Doug also relates some other strange encounters with a theatre ghost and two men with morphing faces.

ep67_ICON.jpg

Episode 67: On December 12, 2018 Nick woke up to some very weird nighttime visitors in his bedroom. He contacted us immediately afterward and we scheduled a time to document his encounter. Were these beings some kind of alien? Visitors from the realm of the fae? Timothy is joined by Joshua Cutchin as we hear Nick's story and compare it to other tales of the faeries and the alien greys.

Episode 65: What information could be so weird that it has even our resident skeptic, Alison, questioning her skepticism? We explore the Jumping Frenchmen - could they be a possible link between Flannel Man and the Mirrored Men? Could the Jumping Frenchmen be responsible for some or all of the Flannel Man sightings?

Episode 63: Alex and Colin tell of a strange series of events that lead to a night of terror in the woods. A strange old woman directed them to a camping area. After an exchange of fruit with something unseen, they decided to return to the area for a three-day camping trip. Weirdness followed with bad smells, odd vocalizations, and other unexplained sounds. The trip culminated with Colin, separated from Alex, experiencing an intense and frightening night in the woods. Was it bigfoot or something even stranger? How is the old woman connected?

Episode 62: Jedediah tells about the night he saw two Flannel Men outside of window. They mirrored each others movements and moved their heads like owls. He then tells some of his other experiences with dark entities, sleep paralysis, and more. In the second part of the show we listen to some audio of unknown growling sent in by a listener.

BelsnickleSF_icon.jpg

Episode 60: For our holiday episode, Timothy and Alison talk Belsnickel, the wild man of Pennsylvania Christmastime. Much fiercer and stranger than a simple proto-Santa Claus figure, Belsnickel was called a "bad faerie" and "half-man, half-beast" - which came from the forest at night to haunt children. Timothy and Alison read multiple historical accounts of the frightening Belsnickel smacking walls, peeking in windows, speaking in unknown languages, and generally behaving like a bigfoot creature. Timothy also presents an old song and a poem about Belsnickel uncovered in the research for this episode.
