BSP: Believer Skeptic Podcast is a podcast that delves into strange and humorous phenomena including simulacra (seeing Jesus on your toast), supernatural sightings, crypto-zoology, and so much more. Cody and Chris have created a platform on which they discuss both sides of the phenomena (real or bulls**t) while sipping on booze and spirits that represent their chosen topic. They hope to entertain, enlighten, and maybe even educate you on all things fun and weird. Whose side will you be on? Are you a believer or a skeptic?

The show is dedicated to reviewing and discussing the incredible menagerie that makes up the creature feature / monster movie genre.

Guest Podcast - Rogue Darkness: The Atlas Vampire
BSP is still on summer break throughout July. In the meantime, we’re bringing you an episode from our friends at the Rogue Darkness Podcast. Their podcast talks about how misinterpretations and misinformation surrounding witchcraft, the occult, and other beliefs have led many to do unthinkable crimes. In this episode, they’ll be delving into the mysterious (and still unsolved) crime committed by a murderer known as The Atlas Vampire.
Guest Podcast - ODDentity: Season Finale
BSP is still on summer break throughout July. In the meantime, we’re bringing you some fun guest podcasts! Next up is The ODDentity Podcast, where Janine Mercer discusses tales of the paranormal, urban legends, folklore, and (occasionally) true crime, with just the right amount of sarcasm and humor. In their season finale, Janine interviews Jonathan Johnson of West Virginia Paranormal. In her words: I had a great chat! Jonathan and his group have uncovered some pretty amazing stuff. We talk about the team’s investigations of some famous (or rather infamous) haunted places along with a discussion of some lesser-known locations and Jonathan talks about how he got into paranormal investigations in the first place. If you’ve ever wanted to know more about how paranormal investigations actually work, you’re in for a treat.
Guest Podcast - Four's a Crowd: Pilot Episode
BSP is on summer break throughout July. In the meantime, we’re bringing you some fun guest podcasts! First up is Four’s a Crowd, a Situation Comedy Podcast. Here’s more about the episode: After Cameron suddenly dumps Bradley, they are ready to part ways until finding out from the endearing, but meddlesome, building concierge that rent is doubling. So to keep the apartment, both of them decide to find a third roommate. Unfortunately, they each try to out-maneuver the other preemptively, resulting in hijinks like you wouldn't imagine.
Island Dreams: Hawaiian Lore
In this episode, Cody and Chris celebrate summer by taking you to Hawaii and talking about the fascinating lore there. First, Cody discusses the Pali Highway, where you can’t bring pork without upsetting Kamapua‘a, the Pig God. Then, Chris shares the story of the Night Marchers, ancient warriors cursed to march the islands for eternity (don’t get in their way, or you might end up joining them). Next, Cody talks about the Manoa Chinese Cemetery, an ornate graveyard that contains a tree with a portal to the afterlife. Finally, Chris shares the fiery goddess, Pele, and the curse she’ll bring upon you if you take anything from her domain. Creep of the week is a creepy (SUPER CREEPY) experience from Christian (from the Glitch Cube Podcast). This episode’s drinks are mango lemonade and Kona beer.
Fireballs and Shipwrecks
In this minisode, we talk about a fireball (containing a lizard) and a curious boating incident. First, Cody shares a man's experience with a lizard in a fireball who gives him a magic pebble that takes him back in time to see the creation of the Easter Island statues. You read that right. Then, Chris discusses the Sarah Joe, a ship that went missing, only to be discovered years later under mysterious circumstances. There's definitely a common thread between the two stories. Can you guess next week's episode?
