Come hang out with us every other week as we take a deep dive into the unnamed and unseen horrors which dwell at the edge of what we perceive as reality. Why is Texas so weird? What's the deal with Gnomes? Who was Tom Slick? What is the Texas Dogman Triangle? We may not have the answers (we don't), but we have plenty of questions.

    The Caracas Dwarves (or The Hairy Attacker)

    The Caracas Dwarves (or The Hairy Attacker)

    This is a weird one. Weird because it's almost never talked about, and even weirder because it involves INVINCIBLE BEAR MONKEYS. Or something. Part cryptid encounter, part UFO story, all BATTLE ROYALE, The Caracas Dwarves has recently become one of our favorite cases. Find out why.

    Thank God for Tom DeLonge

    Thank God for Tom DeLonge

    Thank God for Tom DeLonge



    After and during the course of a prolific musical career, one of the most important movers in the paranormal/unsolved niche since Thomas Baker Slick Jr. would do something that - to put it lightly - would send shockwaves across the world. In 2017 the To The Stars Academy released what are probably the most impactful pieces of hard evidence regarding the UFO/UAP question to the public. Five years hence, things are drastically different regarding not only the UFO conversation, but the dialogue surrounding the unsolved at large. It's time to talk about why, and give Monsieur DeLonge (of Blink 182 and Angels and Airwaves, two of the greatest musical acts of our generation) the credit he deserves. 



    Thank God for Tom DeLonge.

    Gnomes.

    Gnomes.

    They're everywhere. EVERYWHERE. They've been around for centuries, they're taking over our yards, infiltrating our holidays, lining the shelves of our retail establishments... what are we gonna do, you guys? Probably go extinct, because we've basically invited the GNOMES into every aspect of our lives, and when they turn on us it's all over. Join us for a strange and semi in-depth discussion... on GNOMES. 



    Thank you so much to our good friend Mike G. of @artofthemorningstar for the amazing episode cover which he put together for us without being asked. Make sure you're following Mike, because his art is amazing.

    The Nagual

    The Nagual

    This was going to be a quick episode highlighting a particularly interesting Mesoamerican shapeshifter. Then it turned into a rabbit hole of coincidence and apparent linkages with other folk tales which literally blew our minds. Join us on a strange journey through Mesoamerican mythology in which we find connections with La Lechuza, the European Werewolf, Quetzalcoatl and a lot more. We'll also get into 17th century guerilla fighter Maria De La Candelaria who we're now sort of obsessed with, as well as examine some modern day Nagual sightings courtesy of Nick Redfern and the internet, and talk a little bit about Farcry 6. Dang.

    A big thank you to all the creators who's work we reference in this episode, including The Unrefined Podcast, The Haunted Hermanas Podcast, Small Town Monsters, Tobias Wayland, Nick Redfern, JSTOR

    The Great Feathered Serpent

    The Great Feathered Serpent

    Happy New Year! Today we take a semi-deep dive into the mythology of Quetzalcoatl; The Aztec Dragon, The Feathered Serpent, and... The Jesus Snake - ? Quetzalcoatl is steeped in lore spread over decades and centuries, and runs the gambit from "maybe some people saw a dinosaur" to "oh wow this is some crazy stuff right here," - let's ask, though - what else might be behind this legend? It's 2022, and we're talking monsters.
