    Episode 292: Davezilla: Portals/Sigils/Fortean Phenomena/"Tarot of the Unexplained"

    Episode 292: Davezilla: Portals/Sigils/Fortean Phenomena/"Tarot of the Unexplained"

    Davezilla is an illustrator, artist, cryptid researcher, creator of the award winning humor blog, "Davezilla," and in his "Spare" time (as in Austin Osman Spare), was executive vice-president of Campbell Ewald (2nd oldest ad agency in the US).  He is also a Gardnerian witch (initiated 1979), Discordian, Ngangalero (initiated 1993), and Santero (initiated 2006).  He likes the liminal.
    In this podcast, we focus on his new work, Tarot of the Unexplained, designed  to represent the most commonly seen and experienced unexplained phenomena:  apparitions, Fortean phenomena, and cryptids.  It incorporates these modern concerns as suits:  Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles become Sasquatch knocking sticks, Ghosts, Portals, and Flying Saucers.  Pages have become Fans, Knights are now Hunters, Queens are Advocates, but Kings are Skeptics, and their role is to take a hard look at the situation and ensure you are not letting your imagination get the best of you despite the fact that your imagination is often the best part... but I digress.
