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.

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.

Welcome back to Mysteries and Monsters!
On this week's show, I welcome back authors and investigators Chad Lewis and Kevin Lee Nelson, alongside film director Joe Tury to discuss the mysterious case of Murphysboro's Big Muddy Monster.
Joe has recently released a brilliant documentary, entitled Creature From Big Muddy: An Illinois Bigfoot Legend looking at this unusual case. Featuring Chad and Kevin and a host of witnesses and locations, the film delves into the legends and lore of the Big Muddy case.
Our guides lead us on the hunt for this enigmatic cryptid. Whilst the main flap happened from 1972 to 1975, we discover that the Big Muddy Monsters seems to be a cyclical cryptid, especially based on its terrifying re-appearance in 1988!
It was a real pleasure to have Kevin and Chad back on the show alongside Joe and I hope you enjoy our conversation.

Big Muddy can rented via Amazon Prime in North America and Europe.
