    Twigonometry

    On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about how much they love the Indiana Jones series, but they think that it would have been better if they hadn't waited so long to film the later versions.  Then, a Danville, California boy and his friends were digging in a local bog when the witness struck a huge toad. After that incident, the boy suffers a bizarre ordeal that will haunt him forever. Next, a retired logger and forest firefighter describes different encounters with the Forest People near his home in Yacolt, Washington.

    Following the break, Cam introduces a series of unsettling sightings involving enigmatic entities referred to as Black Stickmen. Humans rarely observe these peculiar humanoid beings and bear an uncanny resemblance to conventional cartoon stick figures, rendering them among the most peculiar entities ever encountered. Black Stickmen are typically characterized as tall, slender, and entirely black, existing solely in two dimensions. Witnesses report witnessing them engage in peculiar galloping movements, with some accounts suggesting they can even hover above the ground. Due to their two-dimensional nature, these entities maintain a consistent appearance from any perspective. The mystery deepens as questions arise about the identity and purpose of these elusive figures, leaving many wondering why people are encountering them in the first place.

    Mysterious Coincidences

    Mysterious Coincidences

    On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about the beautiful spring-like weather in the North Texas area and their upcoming trip to the Colorado mountains. Then, two cousins in the summer of 1999 were traveling towards Joplin, Missouri when they had a strange encounter with an ominous tall creature with wings crossing the road. Next, a Wyoming Elk hunter encounters a distressed hunter who tells him about a remarkable experience that he has just had with a Reptilian being in the nearby mountains.

    After the break, Cam brings up some strange coincidences. When the threads of coincidence weave through our lives, a fascinating dichotomy emerges among individuals — those quick to dismiss such happenings as mere randomness, and those attuned to discerning meaning or a grander design at play. Beyond the surface of encounters with doppelgängers or sharing birthdays with best friends lies a deeper truth: the universe consistently conspires to infuse our everyday existence with serendipitous moments. In the realm of coincidences, the 1989 paper "Methods for Studying Coincidences" by math professors Persi Diaconis and Frederick Mosteller defines a "surprising concurrence of events, perceived as meaningfully related, with no apparent causal connection." While apt, this definition falls short in capturing the essence of those extraordinary coincidences that intricately connect people and places, prompting contemplation of something beyond the ordinary.

    Join us as we explore seven remarkable coincidences — some etched in history, others mind-bending astonishing — that lead even the most rational minds to question the improbable alignment of events. The world brims with inexplicable occurrences and mysterious twists, challenging our understanding of life's unpredictable journey. From uncanny predictions to eerie parallels among seemingly unrelated events, these extraordinary stories beckon us to contemplate the enigmatic patterns that govern our universe. In this episode of Expanded Perspectives, we embark on a journey into the realm of mysterious coincidences, exploring tales that range from the man who survived two atomic bombs and the multitude of Eleanor Rigbys to Mark Twain's meteoric birthday and the synchronized deaths of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Brace yourself for a captivating exploration of the strange and intriguing as we delve into the mysteries that surround us.

    More Encounters With the Fae

    More Encounters With the Fae

    On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about some very strange sightings of UAPs. Then, they get into some wild sightings of some reported Not Deer men, a jort-wearing dogman, and a human slug. After the break, the boys get into some more strange and remarkable sightings of Fae Folk. Fairies have become iconic figures in films and television. Still, beyond fantasy, numerous purported sightings of these mystical beings have been reported throughout the ages in Britain, Ireland, North America, and more. While much of the lore surrounding the collective term 'fairies' is steeped in legend and myth, many accounts persist from individuals who claim direct encounters with fairies and their enchanting activities, spanning both ancient and modern eras. Remarkably, some reports come from individuals of reputable social standing, asserting that they have witnessed or engaged with creatures unmistakably resembling fairies. Whether one chooses to embrace these accounts or not, they serve as illustrative examples of the diverse perceptions people held about fairies at different points in history. Accounts of fairy experiences, predominantly from the twentieth century, originate from a wide spectrum of individuals, including business professionals, housewives, journalists, clergymen, bus drivers, anglers, gypsies, schoolteachers, university professors, soldiers, artists, authors, poets, musicians, sculptors, actresses, and many others. So what do you think? Are the Fae real?

    Encounters With The Fae

    Encounters With The Fae

    On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about their New Year's Eve as well as some upcoming vacations. Next, a person in Lancashire, UK is stared down by a tall clawed crawler. Then, a hunter in Washington believes he was tracked by a Bigfoot or perhaps even 2 Bigfeet while out Elk hunting.

    After the break, the boys get into some remarkable sightings of Fae Folk. Fairies have become iconic figures in films and television.

    Lost Treasures of the Third Reich

    Lost Treasures of the Third Reich

    On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about how Christmas is coming and how Cam's daughter has finished her degree at Texas A&M University. Then, a central Texas witness watches a feral hog shapeshift into a Sasquatch. Next, a person has a possible Glimmer Man sighting in their home. Was it a Glimmer Man or something else like a ghost? After the break, Kyle brings up some long lost treasure in Europe from after World War II.

    In March 1945, the Nazis set off from the city of Goerlitz with a convoy of artwork from a museum and treasures from Russia’s Amber Room. Legend has it that as the war drew to a close, a local miner saw a group of German soldiers move the train, filled with valuables, through the Owl Mountains, near the town of Walbrzych. Since dubbed the “Nazi gold train,” the locomotive has never been located and has become a topic of interest for both historians and treasure hunters. For some, it’s become an obsession, with many attempts being made to find it over the years. Some have warned the train likely doesn’t contain any gold or treasures. Instead, they posit that it was loaded with chemical agents the Nazis were transporting to Berlin in a final attempt to stop the Soviet Red Army. Dangerous nerve agents, such as Tabun, are theorized to be among the chemicals onboard. No one really knows!

    Magical Montana

    Magical Montana

    On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about the cowboy life and the terrible luck Kyle has been having with automobiles this week. Then, in 2008 a witness driving north on Highway 680 between Fremont and Pleasanton, California, saw something large flying about their car. It looked like a juvenile Pterosaur! Next, a Hamilton County, New York driver hit a supposed Bigfoot that was carrying a deer along Route 8 in July 2014. The incident was never reported to the local Police.

    After the break, Cam brings up some wild stories from the great state of Montana. Montana is a vast, beautiful state with sweeping landscapes, mountains, and monsters! According to Native American lore, the state’s waters have long been home to strange, sometimes deadly creatures. Flathead Lake reportedly hides a monstrous something that has been sighted for decades, and strange things are said to soar through the big sky. All of this and more on this installment of Expanded Perspectives!
