This week we highlight a story from the recent release by friend of the show, Linda S. Godfrey. The book is titled ‘I Know What I Saw: Modern-Day Encounters with Monsters of New Urban Legend and Ancient Lore’ and our subject this week is just one of dozens of excellent stories that are catalogued within it. The Witchy Wolves of the Omer Plain are one part national tragedy, one part spirit guardian, and 100 percent regional folklore at its finest. However, there very well may be more than meets the eye when it comes to these ferocious Spiritual Beings which are said to haunt the graves of fallen warriors. We hope you’ll enjoy.
This week, Jason wrestles the microphone back for another of his excellent specials. The target of his scientific ire this time? Fairies. These ancient, ill-defined, intentionally vague creatures which seem to have somehow slipped into the modern world with alarming ease, sneaking in through our childhood and then hiding in the dark places, across the threshold of civilization, where the wild things lurk. Then Sam waxes a little too poetic about the interconnectedness of all things, Jason talks about King Arthur for much too short a time, and both agree that just because the creator of the most famous detective of all time thinks something is true doesn’t mean you should trust him. Then, just like a midsummer’s nights dream, it’s all over. We hope you’ll enjoy!
In this episode we explore the many different problems that you, our lovely listener friends, have gone through in your life. And man, some of them are intense. Some of them are funny. Most of them aren’t. We want to thank each and every person who wrote in, sharing their experience and blessing us with their stories. Also, it’s three hours long, so there’s that as well. Happy Halloween!
A Spooktober Poem, Submitted by Michael Hamilton
Life is slowly becoming a walk among the trees.
Not a mere walk, more of a shuffle along the tombstones.
The are is cold and my skin grey.
I feel a pulse but I no longer sure of who it belongs.
Is it mine, the frozen earth it’s self, or one of a love that is long gone.
Stripped and deprived of all feeling.
For I am as thin as the twigged trees.
No emotion, no connection.
No emotion, no connection.

This week we cover an obscure bit of Californian Folklore, the Dark Watchers. Listen as Sam asks Jason if he’s familiar with all sorts of Californian things, and the two of them bond over the atrocities of John Steinbeck, while trying to get to the bottom of stories that have to do with human shadows, unaccompanied by humans, living in the mountains of Big Sur. We hope you’ll enjoy!
This week we return to a topic touched on in earlier episodes, one that gives Sam the absolute spooks and Jason a bad case of sleep paralysis. The folklore surrounding the Skinwalker, the evil entity of First Nations belief, is as chilling as it is resilient. To this day, stories of Skinwalker Encounters come in fresh, and Sam and Jason are going to do your best to teach you some things to be on the lookout when wandering alone at night.
This week, Sam blindsides Jason with a story almost too good to be true. It’s got heavy police involvement and documentation. It’s got the makings of a great hoax, but has never officially been solved. It’s got a displaced family, a ruined home, and, most importantly, it’s got a talking stove. We hope you’ll enjoy.

This week we explore three of the most well known and terrifying legends of half-man half-goat monsters plaguing these United States. From the woods of Maryland, to the Bridges of Kentucky, we examine the urban legends and supernatural hauntings that have given rise to this terrifying brand of hybrid. Ghosts, Mad Scientists, Devil Worshipers and more await. We hope you’ll enjoy!
This week we take you through the Mystery of Clapham Wood, starting with the UFO sightings that propelled it to fame within the paranormal sphere, to the alleged human sacrifices that took place at the bequests of Hecate, Ancient Goddess of Witchcraft. Fair warning, some dogs die in this one. We’re sorry for that.
This week, the first time something like this has ever happened, Sam responds to Jason’s most recent special. Bringing stories of Vampires in the New World, we focus in on the fine details hidden within Jason’s broad strokes, doing our best to compliment each other and create for you a vibrant painting of a vampire coming to suck your blood. We’ll explore love and loss in New England, and serial killers in the swamplands of New Orleans. We hope you’ll enjoy!
Oh boy guys. This is it. Over the last year we’ve received multiple requests asking us to look into the Reptilian Conspiracy, and the theories of David Icke specifically. Today, that wish is granted, with great pain. Sam takes Jason through the theory of Reptilian Control, starting with the least crazy aspects and dialing it up as we go. On this, the first of two episodes, we’ll be taking you through the origins of the Reptilian Conspiracy theory, and examining the framework of belief that has lead millions of people into thinking literal giant lizard people are controlling everything we see and experience. Next week we will be looking at the fringier (if that’s even possible) of the theories bundled with this conspiracy, and the stuff we simply can’t explain or disprove. We hope you know how much we love you.
