    Ep 259: The Book of Enoch

    David welcomes back Jason Foux from Dragons in Genesis to discuss the Book of Enoch! A strange but much-referenced book in the Christian bible's apocrypha, the Book of Enoch has been the basis for countless claims of an esoteric nature. Commonly pointed to when discussing ancient aliens, it has also inspired religions and mythologies for centuries. Jason joins Flora for an overview of the book as well as the connections to weird stuff it has spawned. After a 7-part series on Enoch, Jason draws parallels and theories together with the ease of an angel betraying a god. Listen as the boys discuss the Watchers, Nephilim, chariots ascending to heaven, and more. Bask in the glory of religious mythology on Blurry Photos, then go check out Jason's show for yourself!

    BP Bonus: The Undeparted Roundtable

    BP Bonus: The Undeparted Roundtable

    The boys are back at the roundtable to discuss the short film The Undeparted! Labeled "an award-winning documentary film about spirits, attachments, and people," The Undeparted is short, sweet, and spooky. Derek Hayes from Monsters Among Us and Justin Zenger of Zeng This! join Flora to review this fun little film. Focusing on an antique shop in Sand Hill, Marriottsville, MD, director Chris McGuinness learns there's more out there to used furniture than good designs and a few scruff marks. The realization leads him to discover paranormal attributes and attachments unique to the little corner shop and its owners. The film documents his and the owners' experiences in trying to learn more about the spirits who have, as yet, not departed this world. The boys discuss their likes/dislikes of the film and wax philosophical on paranormal activity, mediums, and many more topics inspired by Chris' film. Watch it yourself and see what you think! And check out another roundtable while you're at it.

All over the place

Listened to about four pods hoping to hear some cool paranormal stuff, but this podcast is *sigh* like most others of the genre where it’s just all over the place, and I couldn’t tell what was serious, what was a joke or why the hosts seemed more into their banter than getting into something. When they actually get into exploring some topics it’s great discussion, but some pods are more storytelling which was weird and hard to figure out which pods may be interesting to me.
