Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 128 Bigfoot with Amy Bue

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 128 Bigfoot with Amy Bue

June 14, 2021
It's a welcome return to the search for Bigfoot with the wonderful Amy Bue. Amy has made a name for herself in the last decade as a diligent, humble and driven researcher in the field of cryptozoology.
 
Since witnessing a strange creature whilst driving in Ohio ten years ago, Amy has dedicated herself to push the boundaries of her knowledge in the subject.
 
Amy has brought a refreshing realism to the hunt for Bigfoot, and as a former member of the BFRO, Amy has now both aligned herself as a member of the Olympic Project as well as being the co-founder of Project Zoobook; a collaboration of scientists from a variety of disciplines.
 
We discuss some of Amy's favourite witness encounters, her quest to learn about Bigfoot, her work with the Olympic Project and Project Zoobook, the hunt for Bigfoot and some of the locations on her Bigfoot bucket list. 
 
Amy is wonderful company and I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 127 The Possession of Elizabeth Knapp with M R Gorga

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 127 The Possession of Elizabeth Knapp with M R Gorga

June 7, 2021

Possession is something that for many of us, seems too incredible to contemplate, to outlandish to even consider or maybe to frightening to accept as real.

Throuhgout the ages, such cases often become notorious and many of them have become well known yet one seems to have slipped through the cracks, the case of Elizabeth Knapp.

What makes this case all more suprising is that it was meticilously recorded by the chief witness in the case, the preacher Samuel Willard. Willard was a man who in the autumn of 1671, witnesses one of his servants, Elizabeth Knapp transform from a happy, bright and popular woman to one afflicted by possession.

 

The case is all the more remarkable because rather than treat Elizabeth as a danger, Willard went out of his way to deal with this case in a balanced, scientific manner, completely against everything we presume. To discuss this case and more is author M R Gorga. His latest book, Demons Among Us covers the Knapp case in great detail with many details not having seen the light of day for almost two centuries.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 125 Cryptids of New Zealand with Tony Healy

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 125 Cryptids of New Zealand with Tony Healy

May 24, 2021

This week, it is a warm welcome back to Australian fortean researcher Tony Heal who takes us a on a globe trotting monster hunt.

Tony opens his files from 50 years of research and investigation to cover a country whose cryptids are hardly known of, New Zealand. Tony takes on the search for tales of the Moehau, the islands own hairy man, the fearsome Taniwha, which inhabits waterways, the towering Moa and the frankly terrifying Haast Eagle, which preyed on the Moa.

We also look into ball lightining, poltergeists, coincidence, Yeti's, Yowies and Black Panthers from across the world in a global monster and mystery hunt.

A massive thank you for Tony discussing many cases from around the world that many of us are probably unaware of.

His Yowie book is here:

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 124 Morgan Knudsen

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 124 Morgan Knudsen

May 17, 2021
It's a warm welcome back to Canadian paranormal researcher, investigator, lecturer and author Morgan Knudsen.
 
Morgan is well known to anyone who watches Paranormal 911 and Haunted Hospitals on Discovery as well as growing reputation in the field of paranormal research.
 
With a slant on what can cause a haunting, we discuss a variety of topics in the search for the reality behind hauntings.
 
Can an existing family dynamic create the right ingredients for a haunting? Can stress make people more susceptible to a haunting? Is it just energy leaking in from another dimension, causing our brain to misinterpret the information we recieve or are they just ghosts?
 
We discuss Morgan's book "Teaching the Living" which outlines the ideas and scenarios that can lead to what many believe to be hauntings but are they all so easy to explain?
 
Poltergeists, Wendigos and more are covered in our conversation and it was a pleasure to speak with Morgan again.
 
You can find Morgan's book here:

Thanks Morgan!

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 123 Monsters of the Tar Heel State with David Weatherly

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 123 Monsters of the Tar Heel State with David Weatherly

May 10, 2021
David Weatherly's 5th book in his expanding State Monsters series takes us to one of the original 13 colonies, North Carolina, a state close to David's heart as he grew up here.
 
The Tar Heel state may not have the reputation of the some the USA's more notable cryptid hotbeds but you only have to mention the infamous case of the Beast of Bladenboro for people to take notice.
 
What is it about North Carolina that seems to be so favourable to some creature that we seem to have a population of mysterious predators that keep re-appearing every 20 years or so. Whilst the Beast of Bladenboro occurred in the 1950s, other flaps of creatures taking domestic animals has occurred worryingly regularly.
 
We also look at the numerous Black Panther sightings across the state going back decades as well as looking into North Carolina's most famous Bigfoot, Knobby and discuss some of the witnesses that had some very interesting encounters with a large hairy creature over the last 50 years.
 
Of course, the Casey Hathaway case is also pondered upon as myself and David wonder just how a 3 year old boy could survive in sub-zero temperatures. Casey of course famously claimed a "bear" looked after him and kept him safe.
 
We also touch on Michael Green and his footage of what he claimed was a Bigfoot, lured to appear on a thermal, which you can watch here:

A big thank you as always to David for his time, company and conversation.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 122 Psychic and Paranormal Investigator John Russell

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 122 Psychic and Paranormal Investigator John Russell

May 3, 2021

This week, I'm joined by American psychic and paranormal investigator John Russell from his home in Florida.

John has been immersed in the paranormal since an encounter as a small boy in his family home in Texas. A ghostly visitor awakened John's interest and his life has embraced his interest and experiences ever since.

As his abilities developed, John sought to understand what this all meant and sought answers in both spiritual and religious organisations, giving him a more balanced understanding of the biases that all belief systems hold.

John dicusses his early experiences, the intracacies of American talk radio, guardian angels, encounters with ghost animals and his involvement in a documentary searching for answers regarding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln for the History Channel that uncovered some unusual information that opened up new avenues for investigators and historians.

John's site is here:

A big thank you to John for joining me today,

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 121 The Van Meter Monster with Chad Lewis

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 121 The Van Meter Monster with Chad Lewis

April 26, 2021
We all love a good monster mystery and some stand out from the majority either because they were so weird, so unusual or simply arrived and disappeared in a short space of time.
 
From the Dover Demon, to the Enfield Horror and one of my favourites, the Fresno Nightcrawler, unique cryptids are rarely spotted as rarely as these guys.
 
One of the weirdest also occured in the little town of Van Meter in the autumn of 1903. The origins of this weird, winged cryptid have baffle many a researcher but I am delighted to be joined by Chad Lewis to discuss the Van Meter Monster alongside his book with Kevin Lee Nelson and Noah Voss.
 
If you've never heard of the Van Meter Monster, then prepared to be baffled, mystied and more by a singular creature that terrorised the town over a seven day span before disappearing back to whence it came and the pagges of fortean folklore. 
 
We also dive into Chad's latest book, Supernatural Dares of the Mid-West, which sees Chad brave his hand at investigating over 40 supernatural dares said to punish those who try their luck.
 
Chad's books can be found here:
 
A big thank you as always to Chad for his time and conversation. Enjoy!

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 120 The Loch Ness Monster with Ken Gerhard

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 120 The Loch Ness Monster with Ken Gerhard

April 19, 2021
After two years, we finally tackle the UK's most famous cryptid in the company of Ken Gerhard. Ken has recently released his latest book "The Essential Guide To Loch Ness and other Aquatic Cryptids" and we dive into the history of Nessie since she first came to the media's attention in 1933.
 
We cover some of the famous early sightings, THAT photo, the famous cryptozoologists who have joined the search for this enigmatic creature and Ken's theory on what Nessie could possibly be.
 
We then hop across the Atlantic Ocean to look into another aquatic beasty allegedly caught on camera more than once, Champ. Lake Champlain's own mysterious creature has been reported for the best part of 300 years and we look at the Sandra Mansi incident, some notable sightings and the work people like Katy Elizabeth are doing hunting for the USA's top aquatic monster.
 
Ken's site can be found here:
His books can be found here:

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 119 Charles Christian

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 119 Charles Christian

April 12, 2021
It's been a while since we dove into the world of Folklore but when you have an area steeped in unusual legends, mysteries and of course, monsters on your doorstep its hard to resist.

Author and researcher, Charles Christian joins me today to examine the weird and wonderful history of an area known as the Wold Newton Triangle, an area hardly known in the UK, never mind Yorkshire.

The Wold Newton triangle lies between the ancient city of York and the coastal town of Scarborough, with its top edge pointing towards Flamborough Head.

Inside this area we have monoliths and earthworks, the mysterious Gypsey Race river, said to foreshadow great misfortune across the globe, the site of the Wold Cottage meteorite which caused a sensation when it crashed to earth in 1795, the alleged skeleton of a dragon, killed by its greed and of course, its most notorious resident, the tale of Old Stinker, the UK's resident werewolf and a case Charles has investigated thoroughly.

A big thank you to Charles for taking us on a trip around this little known area and sharing his werewolf hunting exploits.

Charles' book can be found here:
