    444: Kentucky UFO Crash Coverup

    In Episode 444: Kentucky UFO Crash Coverup, we are joined by Jon. Before we discuss his personal experiences, we talk about a UFO coverup case coming out of his hometown in Kentucky. Jon first heard about the incident on Coast to Coast, but learned much more when he returned home and spoke about it with his mother and father.  Jon also shares his own paranormal encounters in Gettysburg, which escalated from horseplay to serious in nature, his near-death experience that occurred while driving, and his experiences working in a haunted warehouse.

    RELOADED | 309: The Predator

    RELOADED | 309: The Predator

    In Episode 309: The Predator, we talk JR, a former member of a "1%" motorcycle club. After doing something to get himself kicked out of the club, JR started his own burglary gang. Between the club and the gang, he was in deep trouble with the law and found himself on the run, hiding out on a very remote property in southeast Indiana. Although he was given permission to stay on the property, JR was also warned that something was roaming the land... Not paying much mind to that warning, he spent nine months at the location, spending his time looking for old artifacts he could sell for cash. As time went on, JR not only found artifacts but discovered huge finger bones and oddly placed mounds. And that's where he wishes his discoveries had ended: while out searching, JR also came across a translucent creature he can only describe as "The Predator." During his final encounter with it, he was left so terrified that he decided to head back home, where he was facing prison time, then stay one more day in the forest with The Predator!

    442: The Bigfoot Summoner

    442: The Bigfoot Summoner

    In Episode 442: The Bigfoot Summoner, we speak with Terence, who recently had a live TikTok video of himself throat singing in the forest go viral. In the video, Terence was illustrating how his throat singing talent brought a deer out of the trees to observe him. But what he initially missed on camera is that there was more than just a deer and himself present at the time. He was quickly informed through comments on the video that there was a much larger creature lurking in the background. He tells us about this experience in the woods and what he makes of it, and we take a deeper dive into Terence’s spiritual believes, which give him a unique take on about “bigfoot” might be.

    RELOADED | 98: The Vortex Portal

    On Episode 98: The Vortex Portal, we are joined by Tony's friend Scott, who shares his numerous odd experiences in the Allegheny National Forest. He discusses many unexplainable occurrences, from seeing strange lights in the forest and bigfoot coming in close to his camp, to his most recent experience of what only can be described as some kind of vortex portal that appeared right before him one night!

Two thumbs way down

Just when you think there couldn’t possibly be a bigger liar and grifter than Wes Germer & Woody Pratt, along comes dogface Tony…

Jessie Jo1980 ,

Im over it

Been a listener since the beginning and was a member til the beginning of this year. I’m sure someone out there likes the direction the content has gone, but it’s unlistenable at this point.
