    The Ariel School UFO Incident (Part 1) - Nice To Meet You, Captain Planet

    The Ariel School UFO Incident (Part 1) - Nice To Meet You, Captain Planet

    Hello, everyone. Times are tough. The Farthest Reaches had to step back from the podcasting scene for a little while due to some important, personal matters that took precedent. We hope you're still with us and are just as excited to reach back into the world of the bizarre and strange as we are. Today, we're doing just that. In honor of National UFO Day of 2022, we present to you the Ariel School UFO Incident! On September 16th, 1994, in Ruwa, Zimbabwe, around 60 students ranging from grades K-6 would experience an extraterrestrial event that even the famous Dr. J. Allen Hynek himself wishes he could have been a part of. In the morning hours, these students would bestow their sights on a craft, sometimes reported as multiple crafts, that slowly descended into a nearby field with two strange occupants stepping out for a breath of that fresh, crisp, earthly air. As the students congregated around the spellbinding scene, one of the otherworldly visitors began to approach the children. Upon doing so they released a torrent of information in the form of thoughts, specifically images, that only some students could bare and comprehend. These thoughts were a warning that "Mother Earth" wasn't doing too well and were possibly describing humanity's final moments... There have been many interviews conducted and television shows portraying the events that took place on that early fall day in Ruwa. The only thing that is certain though is that the kids stick with their story. None of them have strayed away in the nearly 30 years since and following the recent release of "Ariel Phenomenon", a documentary nearly 15 years in the making, about the Ariel School experience, there is new evidence brought to light that may potentially point us in the right direction with this case. When digging into these stories and legends from 10, 50, 100, 1000, or however many years ago, it just goes to show that our world, our universe, has always been strange and forever will be strange.

    Peter Stumpp (The Werewolf of Bedburg)

    Peter Stumpp (The Werewolf of Bedburg)

    Lets say you are playing a game where you must draw a piece of a paper at random from a hat. On those pieces of papers are qualities or characteristics and you must proceed with describing a historical person that fits the trait that you've chosen. Who would you begin to recount if you drew the unforeseen attribute of werewolfery? What about a serial rapist? Could you narrate to your audience an infamous murderer? Name someone who practices black magic or an individual who struck a deal with the devil? Look no further than to the infamous, Peter Stumpp. Pushing aside his questionable basis in reality and the facts and lies about this monster of a man, Peter Stumpp can be labeled as one of the most profane purveyors of evil that the world has ever seen for all of the aforementioned features. A real life horror movie. Possibly, one of the few "real" monsters that we've covered on this show. We here at TFR have bestowed the (not so) great title of "Jackalope of All Trades" to the fabled and notorious, Peter Stumpp for the, at times, wild and ridiculous life story. If you would like to learn more about this wicked Peter... ;) …and our thoughts on this ill-fated tale then have yourself a listen! Stay safe and healthy out there, everyone!

    Legend Of The Stikini

    Legend Of The Stikini

    One animal that has seen it's fair share of importance, but mostly infamy, while rising through the superstitious minds of human history is the owl. A couple of the owl's powers that people believe in are possessing the ability to commune with our ancestors while being a spawn from the underworld. Nonetheless, the majority of people believe it is here to cause mischief and misfortune for us earth-walkers until the end of days. We can find the owl's influence as far back as Sumerian culture, the ancient Greeks, and even in todays masonic architectural layout of Washington D.C. (seriously go check out some pictures of it). The owl has been linked to various cryptids like todays subject and even the infamous Mothman of Point Pleasant as well as the descriptions of some people's encounters with extraterrestrials. The owl has vigorously gripped within it's talons; the human psyche. Overpowering it with the dominance and authority that it holds in the realm of the supernatural. From this supernatural uprising, we have the Stikini from Seminole Peoples folklore. A human/avian hybrid that shapeshifts between forms depending on the time of day. During daylight hours, the monster turns human, indistinguishably. It blends into society, staking out the lay of the land and scouting for potential prey. Upon nightfall, the Stikini turns into a murderous, bipedal, avian humanoid and seeks out the hearts of it's victims. A true supernatural serial killer if you ask us. Unfortunately, with the majority of Seminole peoples folklore being of oral tradition, we don't have too much information on the Stikini and therefore it may be somewhat lost to history. Nevertheless, if you find this legend hard to believe in, that doesn't make it any less real for others...

    Are You Superstitious? V1

    Are You Superstitious? V1

    Matthew, Cassandra, and Brittany decide to sit down and discuss something that hides in the back of everyone's mind. Something that travels alongside you like a shadow, rearing it's head ever so often to let you know that you have briefly become an inhabitant of another, unseen, realm. Whether you stepped foot into this unknown, psychic kingdom willingly, or unwillingly, is of no importance as forces greater than yourself seem to take over... you're at their mercy. What is this strange feeling? Why does it happen when you see a black cat cross your path or while you walk on a sidewalk, looking down at every crack in the concrete that you carefully step over? What compels us to knock on wood when we say something that could put our future at risk or throw our hard-earned money down a well, only to close our eyes, lift up our heads and create thoughts of our desires? This "feeling" and accompanied scenarios are all part of a concept called, superstitions. They run through everyone's minds, every day. Superstitions are a belief and respect in the supernatural. Some have even come about to be looked at as a pseudoscience with few actually creating roots in the world of science, informing us just a little more on how the world works. Your hosts tonight talk about some superstitions, both common and uncommon, and slightly touch on their origins. Have yourself a listen and we hope you enjoy the episode! Take care everyone and stay safe and healthy out there. You'll hear from us soon!



    We also have to say that our good friend and co-host, Josh, will sadly have to step down from The Farthest Reaches from here on out. His professionalism, time, and remarkable effort put into TFR has been invaluable and will never go unnoticed. We thank you for everything, Josh, as TFR wouldn't have come into existence without you. We wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors.

    The Dyatlov Pass Incident (Part 2) - Night On Geese Mountain

    The Dyatlov Pass Incident (Part 2) - Night On Geese Mountain

    We are finally back after a few setbacks with our second and final entry in our series on the Dyatlov Pass Incident! We briefly touched over the timelines for the discovery of the hiker's bodies as well as the investigation that was underway trying to find out exactly what happened to them. In part two, we take a much more in depth look at these events, plus a long discussion over some of the more plausible, or generally grouped as the "more accepted", theories. This is a doozy of an episode but there is a TON of information hidden inside! Have yourself a listen and you'll hear from us soon!

I’m in my bathtub

…smoking a joint and listening to the Granger Taylor episode. I also listened to the skinwalker ranch episodes and I had to stop smoking halfway through because I got freaked out. I’ve decided this is a great podcast.

This show is woke garbage

They hate police and are glad when officers die in the line of duty.

In the episode legend of the stikini if you go to the 1:28:04 second mark you can hear one of the girls say the United States postal service is the only blue I support.

Dominique de Leon ,

Informative, well researched, spooky and silly!

A well researched paranormal podcast with a laid back and humorous twist! I find myself learning new details even on the topics that I thought I knew all about! They approach these topics with a healthy dose of skepticism which I appreciate. Many podcasts take themselves so seriously, but their personalities really shine through and I often find myself laughing along with them.
