Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 43 Aleksander Petakov

December 9, 2019

This week, we're delighted to welcome back filmmaker Aleksander Petakov to discuss his new documentary "Lions of the East" which focuses on the numerous witness sightings, animal mutilations and tracks of Mountain Lions.

Trouble is, the Mountain Lion has been deemed "extinct" in the New England area since the beginning of the 20th century, yet despite this, people keep seeing them across the state and further afield.

We discuss the cases, the history, the witnesses, the evidence and the compelling feeling that someone, somewhere is not being truthful. We also cover a bit of Ufology with Aleks sighting over the summer, his upcoming appearance in the new Small Town Monsters docu-series "In Search Of Ufos" and a little bit of cryptozoology too.

Aleks' blog can be found here:

This week, we're delighted to welcome back British cryptozoologist Richard Freeman to discuss two of our favourite cryptids, the Orang Pendek from Sumatra and the infamous Yeti from the Himalayas.

We talk about Richard's expeditions to search for both over the last 20 years and discuss the sightings, eyewitnesses, Richards's thoughts on what the Orang Pendek could be and its known habitat and diet. 

We then touch on the stories of the Vietnamese Rock Apes before turning our attention towards the Yeti and the hundreds of stories of the reclusive creature. We also cover monstrous snakes, man-eating crocodiles and more.

Join us for a world tour of Cryptids!

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 38 Calvin Parker and the Pascagoula Abduction

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 38 Calvin Parker and the Pascagoula Abduction

November 5, 2019

This week we dive into one of the most compelling UFO abduction cases of the 20th century, the Pascagoula incident of 1973 which affected two men for the rest of their lives.

One of those men, Charles Hickson never hid away from facing the reality of what happened to him that night and dealt with the media glare that firmly landed upon his doorstep.

The second man, Calvin Parker, had such a hard time comprehending what had happened to him that he refused all interviews in the years since, spare a few seconds on a documentary that came out almost 20 years ago.

Yet, two years ago, Calvin, thanks to the sterling efforts of British Ufologist Philip Mantle, decided to finally tell his side of the story. It will stun you, it will shock you and it will baffle you.

Calvin and I take a trip back to 1973, the effects of the night, his quest to find answers and how he finally faced up to the reality of his experience. We also discuss when he almost gave Phillip Klass more than a piece of his mind!

You can buy Calvin's fantastic book here:

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 37 Stocksbridge Bypass with Dr David Clarke

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 37 Stocksbridge Bypass with Dr David Clarke

October 31, 2019

Joining me on the second part of our Halloween special is English author, journalist, lecturer and investigator, Dr David Clarke. Dr Clarke was the man who got the UK Government to release all its UFO files in the late 90s and early 00s but has covered a wide range of Fortean subjects over the years.

We dive into one of the most well known modern ghost stories in the United Kingdom, that of the haunting of Stocksbridge Bypass, near my home town of Sheffield.

Yet the stories didn't begin when the bypass opened, ironically on Friday the 13th in May 1988, they began prior to it opening with construction workers be too scared to work alone or at night and culminated in two police officers having a night they would never forget.

We have exclusive clips from Dr Clarke's interviews with the officers at the time as well as other interviews with additional witnesses over the years.

Whilst the modern version of this story seems to be a collection of fabricated experiences, exaggeration, and factually incorrect death tolls, something quite clearly has occurred for some witnesses.

Are you brave enough to separate truth from fiction with us on Halloween?

This week, I am joined by documentary filmmaker, Jay Bachochin to discuss his hit, "Finding Jay" and the world of Bigfoot.
