Welcome to Kentucky...The birthplace of Abraham Lincoln and built on the longest cave system in the known world. The home of Daniel Boone, Hunter S. Thompson, horse racing, and Bourbon. But when the hour grows late, the bluegrass state becomes the breeding ground for realms beyond those familiar to the human race. In the the east, ghosts, spirits, and ethereal entities, roam the hills and hollers. To the west, small green creatures stalk farm houses, and disappear without a trace when shot. In the north, Mothman beats his wings along the banks of the Ohio river. While in the South, the energy of the Bell Witch is palpable just over the border. Journey with us as we investigate just what goes bump in the Bluegrass night, and ask the question, how many coincidences are too many? There’s no need to check the clock... Time is an illusion... and it’s Midnight in Kentucky!

    The Weird Report: Does Objective Reality Exist?

    The Weird Report: Does Objective Reality Exist?

    Nightowls of all times, places, spaces, and ages, the full moon has risen once again and you are listening to The Midnight in Kentucky Weird Report, a Patreon exclusive series on our takes on some of the biggest stories on high strangeness from around the world and right here in the Bluegrass. The date of this recording is September 2nd at 17:04. On this fourth edition of The Weird Report, Jamie Lee makes her return to the microphone as we delve into the the strange nature of existence itself and if objective reality exists at all. Then we’ll venture to the red planet and examine what some think may be a doorway carved into the Martian landscape. Returning to Earth, we find ourselves near Geneva at CERN labs to explore theories that work on the hadron collider may some how be effecting the fabric of space and time. From there, we’ll go down south to Georgia to investigate the recent destruction of the legendary Guidestones and just how it may connect to several of our stories this evening. Finally, we bring it back to the bluegrass for our Spotlight Sighting where we’ll dive in to supposed security cam footage of a tall gaunt humanoid creature near Morehead, Kentucky. Fickle reality, alien gateways, time/space portals, southern fried conspiracies, and pale crawlers, all tonight, on the fifth edition of The Weird Report!

    Monsters of the Bluegrass State - Sasquatch, Dogmen, UFOs, Pale Crawlers, and More - Live from RCPL Con 2022!

    Tonight on Midnight in Kentucky, we’re live and weird from the Russell County Public Library with the attendees of RCPL Con 2022! In this episode, we discuss a variety of the monsters and beasts seen around the state of Kentucky, from the cryptid to the creepy, as well as hear first hand accounts of a few audience member’s encounters and experiences with the unknown, unexplained, and otherworldly. You’ll hear tales of high strangeness in the Commonwealth and abroad featuring Dogmen, Sasquatch, UFOs, pale crawlers, and phenomena so odd names have yet to be given to it. This one gets strange quickly, with the conversation guiding us down those mysterious Kentucky backroads all you Nightowls know so well! Journey with us as we come face to face with the Monsters of the Bluegrass State!

    In Conversation with Delainey Bowers and Jason Stephens; Comic Virgin Crossover Event!

    In Conversation with Delainey Bowers and Jason Stephens; Comic Virgin Crossover Event!

    Since the inception of the comic book medium, aliens, monsters, and extra-dimensional entities have always been stars of the color soaked page. This commitment of ethereal to panel, a pop culture reiteration of otherworldly phenomena continually finding a prominent place in the folklore of various cultures since the dawn of human history. Tonight on Midnight in Kentucky, we speak with comic aficionado and owner of the Bluegrass state’s largest comic book store, Jason Stephens, as well as folklorist and editor of Kentucky Folklife Digital Magazine, Delainey Bowers- who together host the podcast Comic Virgin. When not immersed in graphic novels, however, Delainey and Jason have also embarked on several investigations of the supernatural, paranormal, and out-and-out weird over the years. In this episode we discuss the through line between comics, folklore, and the phenomena at large, a few of Delainey and Jason’s more profound encounters with the unexplained, the ontological nature of the phenomena itself, and much more. Join us on our strange travels once again Nightowls, as we go in conversation with Jason Stephens and Delainey Bowers, on an episode straight out of a comic book, the MIK x Comic Virgin crossover event of the summer!

The last post you guys just put up on Facebook is true. I seen it in early spring I stared at it for a while and after realizing it wasn’t a jet and it wasn’t blowing exhaust fumes out after a couple minutes I realized it was just floating hanging out but also moving. I looked at it through binoculars and it was the exact thing as the post i big white oval I do enjoy your podcast though the only bad thing about the podcast is that you guys don’t post daily lol
