Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 112 Robert Lindsy Milne

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 112 Robert Lindsy Milne

February 27, 2021
As February draws to a close, I am joined by Canadian psychic Robert Lindsy Milne to discuss his career over the last 6 decades and the journey he has undergone throughout that time.
 
From starting out realising that perhaps he was tuned into something different at an early agge, Robert's life saw him end up working in the blossoming Toronto psychic circuit in his mid teens as he sought a hot meal and a warm bed above anything else. Avoiding the Canadian Witchcraft Act was an all together more intriguing situation.
 
Robert discusses his career, the path his life has taken him on, some of his experiences from around the world and how he views his life right now as he enters a period of life that most people would be considering slowing down.
 
Roberts website can be found here:
 
A big thank you for Robert for discussing his life and career with me.

This week I am joined by Amanda Woomer the power behind Spook Eats.
 
Amanda is the author of 5 books, including the fabulous "Haunted Atlas of Western New York" which is a fantastic guide to the haunted locations of New York state where you can also tantalise your tastebuds as well as getting your spooky on!

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 110 The MacIntosh Stone with Ron Radamacher

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 110 The MacIntosh Stone with Ron Radamacher

February 15, 2021
Welcome back to Mysteries and Monsters.
 
After diving into the world of monsters last week, we delve into a mysterious item found upon the shores of Michigan's Upper Penisula. Known as the MacIntosh stone, this small, etched stone was discovered simply laying on ground, waiting to be rediscovered.
 
On it are some strange and unusual symbols that have caused consternation, confusion and more questions. What are the symbols? Are they an unknown form of Native American writing, a simply clever hoax or proof that European settlers arrived in the America's far longer than the narative suggests?
 
We know the Vikings made it to Nova Scotia, so is it such a stretch to imagine they pushed further down into the Great Lakes area from this settlement.
 
To discuss this enigmatic mystery is Ron Radamcher, a man with a love of Michigan and a thirst for adventure and mystery. We discuss the history of the MacIntosh stone, the theories put forward to explain it and the other mysterious clues the area shows us that suggest that maybe what we know isn't all that.
 
Ron's site can be found here:
 
A big thank you to Ron for his conversation!

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 109 The Olympic Project & Darcy Weir

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 109 The Olympic Project & Darcy Weir

February 8, 2021
Welcome back to Mysteries and Monsters.
 
This week, we return to the world of Cryptozoology and I am delighted to be joined by two key members of the Olympic Project, David Ellis and Shane Corson, alongside filmaker Darcy Weir.
 
Since I started the show, I have wanted to have someone from the Olympic Project as a guest due to the fantastic, science based research the team are working on in the Pacific North West. As someone with a deep interest in all things Sasquatch, the Olympic Project has been the gold standard in cryptozoology for several years now.
 
To have Shane and David join me was a real pleasure and we discuss all things Sasquatch alongside Darcy Weir, who's latest documentary, Sasquatch Among Wildmen features Shane amongst others.
 
We discuss how David, Shane and Darcy found themselves drawn into the world of Cryptozoology, the methods they use and we also listen to several audio clips kindly supplied by David for me to use in the show.
It was a pleasure having all three on the show and I hope it isn't too long until we can return to the Olympic Project to discuss even more.
 
You can find the Olympic Project here:

Sasquatch Among Wildmen can found on Prime here:

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 108 Ruth Roper-Wylde

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 108 Ruth Roper-Wylde

February 1, 2021

This week, it is a warm welcome back to author and investigator, Ruth Roper Wylde.

Ruth's first appearance on Episode 91 saw plenty of listeners asking when she would be returning, so it was never going to be too long! Since that episode, Ruth has released her latest book, the second volume of These Haunted Times  and we dive into the book to discuss several of the cases included inside its covers! 

We discuss an unusual haunting in Anglesey, Wales which seems to show two very different personalities over a considerable length of time, a ghost seen wandering the levels of HMP Lewes, the very haunted market town of Blandford Forum, a poltergeist that caused a family to lose money to escape its clutches, a haunted house that scared two seperate families in the airforce and much more besides.

Her latest book can be found here:

A big thank you as always for Ruth for returning!

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 106 UFOs with Philip Mantle

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 106 UFOs with Philip Mantle

January 18, 2021
This week, it is a warm return to Ufologist, investigator and publisher Philip Mantle to discuss his latest book, Investigating UFO's: A Young Person's Guide.
 
Philip has over 40 years of experience and has utilised this knowledge in his book to give anyone new to the subject a solid base of cases to work upon. With the book being split into decades since the 1940's, it offers 3 key cases per decade.
 
Yet, what sets the book apart is that Philip has re-introduced some cases that had simply fallen off the radar in the world of Ufology in favour of the usual cases we here about over and over again.
 
As such, we discuss 4 of the cases in the book, two of which are personal favourites, the incredible experience of the Knowles family incident that occurred on a drive across the Naribor plain in Australia in 1988 and the Reverend William Gill's frankly remarkable case from Papua New Guinea in the late 1950s.
 
We also look at the case of Maurice Masse and his missing lavender and the terrifying experience of Mary Morrison in Scotland from 1996. You can find more about the cases we discuss on the links below:

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 105 June Gossler Anderson

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 105 June Gossler Anderson

January 11, 2021
This week, we're taken on a trip around some of Ireland's most notable haunted locations in the company of author June Gossler Anderson. June's latest book "Hauntings and History of the Emerald Isle" has just been released via Beyond The Fray Publishing.
 
Part travelogue and part paranormal investigation, June's book covers her trip to Ireland back in 2015 and looks into more than just the ghosts.
We look at the notorois Leap Castle, the scene of many a brutal murder and home to more than more than one haunting apparition, Enniscorthy Castle which saw tragic events imprint themselves upon the castle walls, June's experiences with table tipping and a rather cheeky set of spirits on a ghost hunt and some of the ghosts residing at Duncannon Fort.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 104 Nick Redfern

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 104 Nick Redfern

January 4, 2021

Nick Redfern returns to Mysteries and Monsters to help us kick of the new year in style and act as our guide as we delve into the mysteries of the red planet and his book "The Martians".

Mars has captivated us for centuries, from the Romans and Greeks up to the present day and our current exploration of the planet's surface. Nick and I discuss many of the aspects of his book, from the alleged sightings of canal's upon the surface, weird anomalies sighted in photographs, secret NASA programs and the potential for a civilisation ending event that could have been responsible for the end of a Martian civilisation.

Nick also covers a couple of cases from his preceding book "Monsters Of The Deep" too as we look at strange creatures in the London underground and creepy sandwich stealing ghost in a pit.

It was great to have Nick return to the show and both of his most recent books are highly recommended.

Nick's website is here:

His books can be found here:
