This week we examine the reincarnated Scottish Wizard King who served as mentor and magical master to Crowley in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, as well as dive pretty deeply into the practice of the Neophyte Initiation ritual, just so we all know what level of nerddom we’re looking at here with these secret societies. We hope you’ll enjoy!
This week we dive into the history and idea of Rosicrucianism, the diverse orders that it has given birth to, and turn our eyes towards one of the most notable episodes in Aleister Crowley’s young life: the infiltration of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. We hope you’ll enjoy!

This week we begin an expedition that will surely lead us nowhere but our own, hubristic doom. We begin to walk a lonely road, the only one that the Great Beast, had ever known. A road which leads directly to the Crowley Zone. We start our examination by casting an eye towards the wickedest baby the world has ever known, who grows into the wickedest young man the world has ever known, before turning into the wickedest college student the world has ever known, and along the way we learn a valuable lesson about labeling people and what it can lead to: a whole new way of doing Magick. We hope you’ll enjoy!
This week we cover one of the most intriguing of all the First Peoples’ legends, the Thunderbird. We explore it’s legendary origins, and its significance as advocate and judge of humankind. Jason talks a whole lot about birds. We examine accounts of beasts with 20 foot wingspans, terrorizing the skies above Alaska. Jason talks a whole lot more about birds. A wonderful time was had by all. We hope you’ll enjoy!

This week we return with another Jason Special. Jason shines his light of examination on tales of creepy crawly cave creatures, including one of the escape anthropomorphic nightmares from the 2019 movie Cats, something called a Grootslag, and eyeless, translucent horrors from the darkest places on earth. We hope you’ll enjoy!
This week we examine the account of the Flatwoods Monster, surely one of the most shocking and intriguing events in ufology. What appears at first sight as an obvious case of hysteria begins to unravel when some of its loose threads are tugged on, revealing at last a fascinating, albeit convoluted, hypothesis: That the United States Government was and may still be at war with UFOs and their occupants. Our journey, which begins and ends in Braxton County, West Virginia, brings us face-to-face with the incredible and truly terrifying. We hope you’ll enjoy.
The Picture Jason thinks is the smoking gun to all of this:
This week we’re revisiting one of the most popular phenomena of all time, the Mothman! We’ll be exploring his antics over the last 50 or so years, starting in Russia and then settling back in the good old U.S. of A. From the dubious accounts of a great, 20 foot long black bird, flying through the smoke of Chernobyl, to the more credible omens before the beginning of a major war, to overseeing shipping operations in the Windy City, our boy has been popping in and out of the pages of history for quick some time now. We hope you’ll enjoy!

This week we near the end of our series on the Miracle of the Sun by taking a look at the broader phenomena of which it is a part: Miracles and Marian Apparitions. We go as far back as we can, to before the death of Mary, to bring you tales of miraculous apparitions, from Egypt, Japan, Central America, and more. We also take a quick look at what a miracle is, how they work, and why they are so inherently connected with Sainthoood. We hope you enjoy!
This week, Sam and Jason return to cast a critical eye on the Fatima apparitions. Not as a side-effect of eye damage or mass hallucination, BUT RATHER as a UFO COVER-UP! Sam takes us through some of the discrepancies between the earliest reports of the apparitions and the later, so-called official versions, as well as examining some of the peripheral phenomena which occurred that could very well lend itself to an extra-or-ultra-terrestrial explanation! We hope you’ll enjoy!
