Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 47 Peter Byrne and a 2019 recap

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 47 Peter Byrne and a 2019 recap

January 6, 2020

This week, we welcome legendary Bigfoot investigator, Peter Byrne. As many may know, Peter has spent over 60 years hunting for both the Yeti and Bigfoot around the world. We cover Peter's work in India, Tibet and the Himalaya’s, meeting Tom Slick and his work hunting for Bigfoot in the Pacific Northwest.

For Peter to still be out hunting for Bigfoot at 94 years of age is simply staggering so we keep things fairly brief for over 35 minutes.

As such, we look back on 3 of my favourite interviews from last year, Episode 14 with Seth Breedlove covering Terror In The Skies, Episode 2 with Lyle Blackburn covering The Legend of Boggy Creek and Episode 21 with another Bigfoot legend, Ron Morehead.

We have highlights from all three episodes prior to speaking with Peter.

All three can be heard in full by clicking on the links below:

Seth Breedlove Episode 14:

Lyle Blackburn Episode 2:

Ron Morehead Episode 21:

His books are also available through Amazon.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 46 David Weatherly and Haunted Dolls

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 46 David Weatherly and Haunted Dolls

December 30, 2019

For the final show of 2019, we are delighted to welcome back David Weatherly to discuss his latest book, Eerie Companions focussing on the world of Haunted Dolls!

David's book delves into the history of the doll, covering cultures all over the world and how the doll changed from a symbol or warning into a plaything. As the 20th century progressed, several dolls began to gain a reputation of having certain effects on some visitors.

As we know these days, Robert the Doll and Annabelle are probably the most well known, but they are certainly not the only dolls causing the disrepectful to wish they had shown some manners.

Join us for a very creepy converstation and Robert, I meant the situation was weird, not you!

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 44 Tobias Wayland

December 16, 2019

This week, we are joined by author, researcher and investigator, Tobias Wayland. Tobias has been involved in the world of Fortean researcher for well over a decade, first as a field reporter for MUFON, then setting up the brilliant Singular Fortean Society with his wife Emily!

Now, Tobias has released his first book "The Lake Michigan Mothman" covering the surge in the recent sightings of unusual flying creatures in the states surrounding Lake Michigan.

What seemed like a couple of unusual sightings suddenly began to snowball and Tobias's book takes us on a journey into a phenomenon that seems to defy explanation whilst harking back to the infamous Mothman's first appearance, back in November 1966.

We cover the sightings, the book, Tobias's work on the Singular Fortean, Bigfoot hunting with Jay Bachochin and cryptids in general.

You buy Tobias's book here:
