    Evocation of Gazoo

    Evocation of Gazoo

    First, Timothy returns to Gazoo’s Wood to meet Octavion, and talk about his previous experiences at the location. A day of high strangeness ensues: knocking and tapping; large creatures gliding through the trees; a low hum; something is seen (and possibly photographed), before a well-timed distraction allows it to slip away. Next, Sam and Jon stop by from Riverbend Comics to tell us about some more paranormal-friendly titles.

    Lost Brothers of the Alleghenies

    Lost Brothers of the Alleghenies

    We present the story of the Cox children - two brothers who went missing in the mountains of Pennsylvania in 1856. Thousands of people searched for the young boys for weeks until a man named Jacob Dibert dreamed of their location. Decades later, Jacob’s son dreamed of the location of another missing woman - and, shockingly, his grandson dreamed of the location of yet another missing person.

Blight999 ,

First rate show and a must for any hungry open minds

This show is essential listening for those interested in the paranormal. Of particular value on the subject of cryptids (esp. Bigfoot) and archetypes but covers a wide spectrum from UFOs to ghosts. Imho this show represents the forefront of thinking on this subject because it is willing to approach everything with an open mind and relay all aspects of experiencer’s accounts rather than filtering anything. In particular it does not shy away from the weirder aspects of these things like Fae or glowing eyes! We will learn nothing unless more people are willing to take this very approach! Highly recommend!
