    Spring-heeled Jack, the Fire-Spewing Phantom of London

    Spring-heeled Jack, the Fire-Spewing Phantom of London

    In 1837 & 1838, horror was afoot on the streets of Victorian London. A strange and terrible entity stalked the lanes: Spring-Heeled Jack, a bizarre fiend who spewed flame, leapt huge distances, and stalked women and children, tearing at his victim's clothes and flesh with claws of iron. A terror that would return, time and again, for almost two centuries.
    Is he a phantom, an alien monster, a vengeful aristocrat, a psychopathic sex attacker... or something even more insidious? Martin and Mike explore the facts and folklore of Spring-heeled Jack, the Victorian boogeyman who refuses to die.

    Nahanni, Valley of the Headless Men

    Nahanni, Valley of the Headless Men

    Legends of lost gold, beast-men, and an ancient, formless evil swirl like the mists over Canada’s Nahanni National Park Reserve. Strange sightings, unexplained disappearances, and a rash of decapitated prospectors have left their mark on the geography of the region: Dead Men Valley, Headless Creek, and the Funeral Range.
    Is Nahanni a serial killers’ playground? Home to an uncontacted subterranean tribe? Or something much worse. Mike and Martin discuss.

    The Black-Eyed Kids Phenomenon: Don't Open that Door!

    The Black-Eyed Kids Phenomenon: Don't Open that Door!

    In 1996, Texas journalist Brian Bethel shared his experience of a terrifying nocturnal encounter with two very strange children. His accounts became an early viral phenomenon, and struck an eerie chord with readers around the world on the early internet. Hundreds would subsequently come forward to share their own similar encounters with the mysterious Black-Eyed Children.
    Are the black-eyed kids really out there? Are they mere boogeymen, folkloric creatures for the internet age? Or are they a dangerously real paranormal horror? Mike and Martin investigate.

    Nessie and the Loch Monsters of Scotland (Part 3)

    Nessie and the Loch Monsters of Scotland (Part 3)

    Join Mike and Martin as they discuss why Nessie definitely isn't a plesiosaur (sorry!) and go on a bizarre quest to figure out what she might actually be. Och aye!
    Our final trip to Scotland's lochs (for now!) takes in everything from eunuch eels, to giant worms, zooform phenomena, eDNA science, obscure geological facts, bloodcurdling personal stories, shocking inter-cryptozoologist drama, urban terrapins, wild speculation, and fishing lore that would make Captain Birdseye's beard stand on end!
