Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 96 Memphis Spirit Rescue

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 96 Memphis Spirit Rescue

November 16, 2020
This week, I'm delving into a part of the paranormal I've not covered before - Spirit Rescue.
 
Unlike exorcism or the cleansing of a property, spirit rescue is a process of communication with any earthbound or attached spirits that may be responsible for a haunting. To discuss this fascinating topic with me is Stephen Williams, the founder of Memphis Spirit Rescue.
 
Stephen discusses his introduction to the paranormal, his personal experiences and how he came to found the organisation. We also discuss some of the cases he and his team have worked on as well as a trip around some of Memphises most haunted locations and interesting ghosts.
 
Stephen's website is here:
 
St. Jude's hospital is here:

November 9, 2020

Its a warm welcome back to investigator and author Paul Sinclair.

Paul joins us to discuss his latest book, Night People, which was released over the summer. In a depature from his previous Truth Proof books, Paul has bared his soul with a personal and brave account of a lifetime of strange incidents.

From an early age, Paul has found himself experiencing something unusual in a variety of locations and different properties that have continued to effect him to this very day. In a brutally honest book, Paul invites us to reflect upon these strange incidents and the ramifications of hiding this throughout out his life.

We also discuss his encounter with the Reverend Thomas Willis, one of Britain's leading Exorcists, more strange sightings in East Yorkshire, the haunted trawler, The Pickering and his latest project, The Dark Forest documentary.

Dark Forest sees Paul investigating a series of strange encounters with cryptids that has left the witnesses shaken up and questioning their own sanity when faced with seeing things that shouldn't exist.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 94 American Ghost Walks with Mike Huberty

November 2, 2020

Well Halloween may be behind us, but that doesn’t stop us talking about the paranormal on Mysteries and Monsters. This week, I’m delighted to be joined by the founder of American Ghost walks, Mike Huberty. Mike set up the company a decade ago and now runs ghost walks in over a dozen towns and cities across North America.

Mike and I discuss some famous hauntings in Madison and Milwaukee, including the ghost who clearly supports the Milwaukee Brewers in Pfister Hotel, ghosts that linger in the Majestic and Orpheum theatres who clearly still enjoy the limelight, the superstitions of performers, Mike’s first job working in a haunted restaurant and other hauntings in and around Wisconsin as well as a ghost that joined him on stage at one gig with his band Sunspot.

American Ghost Walks can be found here:

Sunspot can be found here:

Thanks to Mike for taking us a tour of some of his favourite haunted locations.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 92 Shadow People with Mike Ricksecker

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 92 Shadow People with Mike Ricksecker

October 26, 2020

One topic I’ve been asked to cover more than most is the disturbing and worrying experiences regarding Shadow People. From the Hat Man, to the Hag, to shadowy entities lurking in bedrooms and homes, these dark shapes often leave the recipients upset, confused and frightened. Yet, are all the interactions malevolent? It seems not.

Mike Ricksecker is an investigator and ghostorian who has investigated plenty of cases to try and shine a light on this mysterious phenomenon and what they possible could be. Are they disembodied spirits, ghosts revisiting loved ones, astral projection or even inter-dimensional beings?

Mike’s new book, A Walk In The Shadows: A Complete Guide To Shadow People looks into the various entities that people have had encounters with, from the Hat Man, entities with glowing eyes, Shadow People, Crawlers and even an terrifying event with a ghostly wolf.

Mike covers all these and more in a conversation that will probably mean you’ll sleep with the light on for a while.

You can find Mike’s books here:

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 91 British Ghosts with Ruth Roper Wylde

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 91 British Ghosts with Ruth Roper Wylde

October 19, 2020

This week, I am delighted to be joined by British investigator and author, Ruth Roper Wylde, to discuss ghosts and the paranormal.

Ruth has now written 4 books looking at cases from the length and breadth of the British Isles and I have to say her work is refreshingly down to earth. It reminds me of the excellent books written by Peter Underwood and John and Anne Spencer.

Ruth’s investigations has put many urban myths to bed, but has also uncovered hundreds of cases previously unknown from every corner of this haunted isle.

We discuss some cases that Ruth has investigated including the mystery car that lead to the discovery of a skeleton, a headless woman who clearly wasn’t the ghost people thought, ghostly hitchhikers, a report she received last month and Ruth’s personal encounter with a shadowy figure on a lonely road.

Ruth’s brilliant books can be found here

You can contact Ruth with your own experiences at her email, wa-1400@outlook.com

Thanks for joining us today Ruth!  

Don't forget, I need YOUR ghost stories for an upcoming show, so if you have a spooky encounter you wish to share with me, anonymously if you wish, please drop me a line titling your email - GHOST STORY to mysteriesandmonsters@gmail.com

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 90 Vampires with A.P. Sylvia

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 90 Vampires with A.P. Sylvia

October 12, 2020

It’s October and what better time of the year to delve into the history and lore of one of the paranormal’s most well-known creatures, the Vampire. To discuss this, I am joined by author A.P. Sylvia to discuss his fantastic book, Vampires of Lore: Traits and Modern Misconceptions

A.P. has researched the folklore of the Vampire to see why the modern interpretation is so different from what the actual folklore and stories of vampirism actually show us. We discuss the origin of the vampires, the contrasts in folklore from around the world, what actually counts as a vampire and the variety of ways to deal with the undead, once they return from the grave.

Along the way we discuss some of the most famous literary vampires as well as pondering if Count Von Count from Sesame Street has more in common with vampire folklore than many may actually realise.

His website can be found here:

You can purchase a copy of his fantastic book here:

A big thank you to A.P. for joining me for a fantastic and interesting conversation on the world of the vampire!

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 89 Demonology with Nathaniel Gillis

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 89 Demonology with Nathaniel Gillis

October 5, 2020

This week, it's another subject new to Mysteries and Monsters, modern Demonology. We often think of demonology based primarily in the parameters of what we have been told by pop culture, religious dogma and televisual bias.

Nathaniel Gillis is here to pull down the walls of what we believe, or certainly what we believe and why we believe what we have been told. Nathan is an author, lecturer and Religious Demonologist.

Nathan found himself drawn into the world of darkness when encountering a ghost whilst on a house viewing with his parents, but he began to question why we were not adapting to the hauntings and primarily in the role of demonic possession. Why was religion not adapting to these demons? Why were demons still appearing? Where had they come from? Why are they so religiously ignorant?

It was these questions that led Nathan to take a very different view on what demons actually are and how we need to deal with these entities?

Nathan's website can be found here:

A big thank you to Nathan for joining me and perhaps you may need the light on for this particular episode!

As some of you may know who follow the show on social media, I ended up being hospitalised with a severe blood infection, which saw me having to receive emergency treatment. Thankfully, I received some fabulous treatment at my local hospital and am making a full recovery but it was a little scary, I have to say.

Thank you to everyone who sent me a message and I appreciate your kindness!

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 88 The Fae, Fairies and Folklore with Morgan Daimler

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 88 The Fae, Fairies and Folklore with Morgan Daimler

September 28, 2020

This week, we journey with author Morgan Daimler who will be our guide into the heart of this wonderful and sometimes disturbing folklore.

Morgan has written over 25 books on folklore from around the world, but the majority have been in regards to the Irish legends of the Fae and Fairies.

Morgan shares her extensive knowledge and research with us and guides us through cases, the challenge that a modern belief in Fairies brings, the historical context and written accounts, why we should always be aware of the respect shown to the Fae as well as many other fascinating aspects of "the little people" We also touch on an account of the aftermath of a fairy battle, why Ireland and Iceland still make sure they don't disrespect the Fae and how even atheists have a healthy respect toward the Fae.

It's always interesting to have someone as passionate as Morgan on the show as demonstrated by her current undertaking to teach herself Old Irish to translate more books, poems and accounts of the Fae from the last 1000 years. Now that is impressive!!

You can find Morgan's books here:

Morgans Facebook page is here:

A big thank you for Morgan for giving us a fantastic overview into the Fae and the traditions and beliefs still taught today.

Mysteries and Monsters:Episode 87 Allison Jornlin

Mysteries and Monsters:Episode 87 Allison Jornlin

September 21, 2020

This week, it's a warm welcome back to the show for Allison Jornlin.

Allison has just launched a new YouTube channel, Paranormal Women: A Hidden History focusing on some of the paranormal trailblazers that perhaps don't get the credit they deserve or may even have fallen off the paranormal radar.

As such, Allison is shining a light on some of the paranormal world's most iconic women over the last two centuries. We discuss the legendary Catherine Crowe, a woman who wrote one of the outstanding paranormal collections of the 19th century, the incredible "The Night Side of Nature" in 1848. A collection of paranormal research, witness testimony and investigation, her book set the template for paranormal research today and has always been one of my favourite researchers.

We also discuss the incredible force of nature that was Alexandra David-Neel, a former opera singer who discovered Buddhism and embraced it to such an extent that her knowledge changed the whole way it was viewed in the Western world. From creating Tulpa's and sneaking into forbidden territories, nothing seemed too much for David-Neel to achieve. She was  also an anarchist, ran a casino and adopted a Buddhist monk.

We also talk about the author, Zora Neal Hurston, the woman who brought the world of Voodoo and Zombies into popular culture but also saw her career take such a nosedive, most of her personal possessions were burned after she died.

These three women are titans in the history of the paranormal and yet most people haven't even heard of any of them.

You can download a free PDF of The Night Side of Nature here:
