Jeff Ritzmann joins me for the first 20 minutes or so to talk about his new Blog, The Numinous Den (http://numinousden.blogspot.com/). We talk about liminality and the Paranormal, and the role of the Trickster... Then Timothy Renner joins us to follow up on his last visit and whether or not he should undergo hypnosis to recover more of his experiences. Jeff, having researched hypnosis thoroughly, gives his thoughts, and why hypnosis is not what people think it is. This conversation does continue on a Patreon only feed, as we ran out of time for the live show.
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 our second episode we follow the Codorus Creek north into York city where we hear a tale of a singing corpse, discuss mystery lights, glowing red eyes, ghosts, and more – and we are rewarded with a photographic anomaly while we are there.

Episode 2 notes and links:
Megan, a regular listener to the show, talks about her very strange experiences, sleep paralysis, and possible hauntings.
One of our Patreons, Alfred, asked us a great question which we try and deal with in this show. He asks, What is the evidence that whatever appears to be behind myriad phenomena (ufo's, sasquatch, fairies, etc) is a non-human intelligence? How do we know it is not a manifestation caused by some kind of collective human unconsciousness? What kinds of questions can we ask to determine which is the case?
