Why Your Mom Might be a Vampire; Featuring Guest Dr. Emily Zarka from PBS Monstrum Misfits and Mysteries

    • Social Sciences

This week we are joined by a very special misfit: Dr. Emily Zarka, the monster expert from PBS Monstrum! Dr. Z chats with Steve and Emmy about the folklore and origins of monsters, her love of the Vermont Lake Monsters baseball team, her favorite cryptids, and so much more. In fact, she and Steve have both seen a Jackalope — coincidence? Next, Emmy does a deep dive into one of the monsters we learned about during our conversation with Dr. Z, the Manananggal. She’s a badass blood sucking half-woman and half-bat, who just happens to lose the bottom half of her body each day at dusk. Talk about a rough night! Steve rounds out our strange-being-centered convo by telling the story of the McGuire Space Alien — basically, some dude panicked and shot an alien on an airplane tarmac, but the ET was never seen again. Spooky! 



If you want to hear more from Steve and Emmy, remember to tune in every Thursday for more mind-blowing and hysterical content. You can also check out our blog on our website: misfitsandmysteries.com And be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram: @podcast_misfits and on Facebook @PodcastMisfits and on Youtube Misfits and Mysteries! Don't forget to buy our Merch and consider donating a couple bucks to buy us a coffee!  Check out Dr. Zarka on PBS Monstrum.  



Check out Steves guest review of the Velocipastor for Zisi Emporium for B Movies.  You can also find Max Gunssler's books on Amazon. Here and here.
