    516: Blurry Creatures Feature

    In Episode 516: Blurry Creatures Feature we are joined in the studio by Nate Henry and Luke Rogers from the popular podcast, Blurry Creatures! Ever since moving to Tennessee, I have been talking with them about coming over to my studio to have a fun conversation and we finally made it happen. We talk about how they got into podcasting, why they cover bigfoot and Nephilim giants, why modern Christianity avoids the supernatural, and Nate's dogman encounter when he was a child. This conversation had no limits and was a great time for all!

    514: Terror In The LBL

    514: Terror In The LBL

    In Episode 514: Terror In The LBL we are joined by Martin Groves, a retired sheriff, who recently started speaking publicly about his horrific experience in the Land Between The Lakes (LBL) back in 1993. Martin and his hunting partner, who was also a police officer, went on a weekend hunting trip that was supposed to be fun and relaxing. After spending some time in the LBL on their hunts and as nightfall approached, things turn to anything but relaxing. Martin recalls being stalked on his way back to camp where his partner was waiting for him. Then that night through a series of dramatic events, Martin and his partner came to realize that they were being hunted by three upright-walking dogmen. As one dogman came walking into their camp to show itself to them, there were two taunting them from the shadows. They fired upon the creatures and ran for the truck where they encounter more unexpected beasts. Martin and his partner escaped with their lives that night but one hunter not far from their camp wasn't so lucky. After this experience, Martin spent the next 20+ years of his law enforcement career quietly investigating these encounters people were having in the LBL. He's connected a lot of dots and wants to share what he's learned with everyone today in this two-part Overtime episode!

    RELOADED | 224: Pennsylvania's D.U.M.B. - Raven Rock

    In Episode 224: Pennsylvania's D.U.M.B. | Raven Rock, we talk with guest Merle, who has spent four years of his life commuting in and out of a Pennsylvanian deep underground military base known as Raven Rock. Merle was contracted in as a truck driver, and - although he didn't gain access to the secretive fifth level of Raven Rock - he had some very strange experiences in the complex, especially with a human hybrid named "Thom." After detailing his experiences inside Raven Rock, Merle describes to Tony his experience seeing the same exact UFO that Tony also witnessed while driving down the turnpike one night, just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
