Strange Familiars explores a variety of subjects in a combination of storytelling, reporting, interviews, and discussion. Cryptids, ghosts, folklore, mythology, and paranormal topics.
Our first cycle of episodes will explore some local legends from York County, Pennsylvania beginning with Toad Road and the Seven Gates of Hell. In episode 3 we journey back to Toad Road and discuss ghosts, bigfoot, the Hidebehind, cryptids, iron furnaces, missing persons, and more - including some very dark, very real true crime stories which took place in the area.

Robert Schneck joins me to talk about his work researching Strange but True stories from history. It's a wild ride, we talk about Vampires and Blood Drinking, Bigfoot and Serial Killers, Self Beheading Machines, The Bye Bye Man, and much more... Oh, and that word that I couldn't place a bit of the way in... Sensationalize. You'll know what I am referring to...

Outro Music from One-Eyed Doll, "You're a Vampire".
A listener, and I believe a Patreon, had asked if we could do a show talking about Magick. It's something we reference a lot, but take for granted that people know about. So, I brought together Michael M. Hughes and Aaron David, who have both had much experience with the subject, as well as myself, and Adam Sayne, who is not so experienced, to keep us grounded. I hope this is as interesting to everyone as it was to us!
End song is by RADII, Left Hand Path.
