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.

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:

Joe's is here:

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

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 114 UAPs and the Truth Embargo with Stephen Bassett and Darcy Weir

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 114 UAPs and the Truth Embargo with Stephen Bassett and Darcy Weir

March 8, 2021
Welcome back to Mysteries and Monsters!
 
This week, I am delighted to welcome Stephen Bassett alongside filmaker Darcy Weir to discuss a variety of topics, including Darcy's new documentary Volcanic UFO Mysteries.
 
The new documentary features some frankly stunning footage captured by the Mexican authorities from their volcano monitoring systems. With interviews with Stephen and Jaime Musson amongst others, the film looks into the numerous sightings of unusual lights in and around volcanoes around the world.
 
Stephen also discusses the ongoing fight for full UAP disclosure, his hopes for a new raft of congressional hearings and the changing dynamic towards the reality of the UAP phenomenon and how the perceptions have changed since the leaking of the Tic Tac videos and the more besides.
 
Rather than considering this a "conspiracy", Stephen refers to this situation as a truth embargo, one that has been in place since 1952.
 
It's a thought provoking conversation which I hope you enjoy.

A big thank you to both for joining me today.

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.

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.
