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:

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:
 
A massive thank you to Ken for joining me once more on Mysteries and Monsters.

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:

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 118 Jason Hewlett

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 118 Jason Hewlett

April 5, 2021
This week I'm joined by author, investigator, filmaker and presenter Jason Hewlett to discuss his career in the world of the paranormal.
 
Jason has recently released "I Want to Believe" in conjuction with investigator Peter Renn through Beyond The Fray publishing. With a long interest in the paranormal, Jason's journey has taken him via film school and a decade in journalism to being part of the growing Canadian paranormal scene.
 
Starting off with some personal encounters in childhood, Jason has built his experience through solo investigations of the abandoned Tranquille Sanitorium outside of Kamloops, British Columbia and joining up with the Vancouver Paranormal Society to invesitgate more locations across the state.
 
With a balanced approach, Jason's experience in both film and print has seen him apply a more methodical approach to the paranormal. We discuss some of his notable investigations, the more notorious hauntings he wants to visit, his video investigation channel as well as what the future holds for both himself and Peter and how the book became a reality thanks to Shannon Legro on Into The Fray.
We also take a detour in to the world of Bigfoot and an unnerving experience that Jason shares with us.
 
Jason's We Want To Believe can be watched here:

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 117 The Battersea Poltergeist with Danny Robins

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 117 The Battersea Poltergeist with Danny Robins

March 29, 2021
We return to the world of the paranormal this week in the company of writer, presenter and producer, Danny Robins. Danny's latest project is diving into a Poltergeist case that caused national headlines back in the mid 1950s but seemed to have dropped off the paranormal radar until a decade ago.
 
In January 1956, 63 Whycliffe Road saw the arrival of one of the most active poltergeist cases in British history. Seemingly focusing on 15 year old Shirley Hitchings, the polt turned the lives of the Hitchings family upside down for the best part of decade, finally petering out in 1968.
 
Danny's wonderful series focuses on the work of the forgotten British parasychologist, Harold Chibbert and his hands on investigation of the disembodied spirit who claimed his name was Donald amongst many other things.
 
Featuring dramatic recreations with a stellar case including Toby Jones and Dafne Keen amongst others, The Battersea Poltergeist has been a phenomenal success via BBC Sounds.
With Danny hosting the show, we discuss the shows germination, the two experts Ciaran O'Keefe and Evelyn Hollow and how Danny came across the case. 
 
We dive into the world of the poltergeist and wrestle with the concept of just how anyone could have even faked so much of the incredible evidence witnessed over so many years.
 
A big thank you to Danny for joining me and to Hayley Stevens for introducing us properly.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 116 Incident At Devils Den with Terry Lovelace

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 116 Incident At Devils Den with Terry Lovelace

March 22, 2021
June 1977 and two USAF EMT's have decided to spend a weekend camping in the Devil's Den State Park in Arkansas.
 
What was supposed to be a fun trip for two best friends to take in some wildlife and admire the clear night sky became a terrifying night that changed lives and relationship forever.
 
On this week's Mysteries and Monsters, I am joined by author and experiencer Terry Lovelace to discuss the events of that night in detail and the physical, personal and emotional ramifications of that incident.
 
Terry talks us through the build up to the event, the immediate aftermath and the myriad of unusual incidents that took place at both the hospital and his home.
 
This included strange visitors to his hospital room, mysterious nurses, unusual medication and a complete breakdown in his friendship with Toby, his best friend and companion on that night.
 
It's a compelling and emotional account and it was a pleasure to speak to Terry about the event and his life afterwards as he has battled to come to terms with what happened to him all those years ago.

Mysteries and Monsters:Episode 115 The Big Muddy Monster

Mysteries and Monsters:Episode 115 The Big Muddy Monster

March 15, 2021

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.

Kevin and Chad's site can be found here:

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