Midwest Cryptids & Folklore

Episode 10: Cryptids in Art, Hopkinsville Goblins, Aliens and MUFON secrets, Flying Humanoids, Ghosts and more Ghosts, Children and the Paranormal, and a Giant Owl from Connecticut.

The new year is here and we decided that the only way we could do 2019 right, is by talking to the premiere Fortean researchers in the Midwest, Tobias and Emily Wayland of The Singular Fortean Society. And let me just say, talk we did! This conversation covers everything from the way cryptid creatures are represented in the art world, all the way to a giant owl sighting direct from Connecticut. In between those topics we cover ghosts, aliens, MUFON, overall strange phenomena at the Ringling Mansion, how children comprehend the strange and bizarre, personal encounters with the unknown, and discuss why, strangely, no ghosts are ever seen wearing JNCO jeans.

This is a 2hr conversation that is not to be missed as both Emily and Tobias bring the knowledge and research credibility to the microphone and offer the kind of insight that only those truly passionate about this strange Fortean world can bring.

Your first month of the 2019 wont be complete until you spend it with both The PBI and The Singular Fortean Society!

*Note: around the 1hr mark, some short sections of audio slightly overlap each other. This is due to a technical glitch in the recording software during the original audio capture. This in no way takes away from the quality of the conversation, it just makes a few areas slightly difficult to understand.
