Psychological Terminology and The Paranormal - Part 1: November 17, 2017

WDTRGGhostShipThis is a roundtable show, and Seriah is joined by Red Pill Junkie, Aaron David of Charm the Water, Adam Sayne of Conspirinormal, and Timothy Renner of Strange Familiars. This is Part 1 of a probably 3 part show, discussing a paper published in Frontiers of Psychology entitled, Fifty psychological and psychiatric terms to avoid: a list of inaccurate, misleading, misused, ambiguous, and logically confused words and phrases. An academic paper, it brings up many points that affect our study of the paranormal, consciousness, and the assumption of materialism. Published back in 2015, it provokes some pretty deep conversations as we explore just the first 20 items in this part. 

Outro Music by Lee TNB AKA Monkey Mind with "Last Transmission (Deep Space Nine Mix)"

Personal Paranormal Stories and Travis Walton - November 4, 2017

Personal Encounters

This is a sort of compilation of some video interviews I have done over the last year. I realize that many people would prefer audio to video, and since these were previously only available as video, I put them all together here. We start with our conversation at Albatwitch Day 2017, where Seriah, Timothy Renner, James Kibler, and Adam Sayne all trade off some strange encounters they have had. Then we hear from Joe about his weird void in the woods, and Dustin about his strange Dream Club experience. Finally we present the interview with Travis Walton and Jennifer Stein from the Travis Premiere in Ithaca, Ny, as well as a talk with Audrey Starborn. 

Outro Music is from Tim Renner's band Albatwitch, with Pin.

Strange Familiars: Episode 19: Site 7 – An Introduction

StrangeFamiliarsWe’ve been hinting about Site 7 on previous shows. We have an ongoing investigation at Site 7 but we remain unsure what we are dealing with – we have reports of mystery lights, orbs, bigfoot creatures, and possible spirit activity. Tonight we’ll talk with Chris, who was the first person who told me about Site 7 as well as Lori and Jeff who have had several strange experiences at Site 7. James and I will relate our own experiences at Site 7, some other findings, and on-site audio on a future episode. (Please note: there are some issues with the audio in this episode. We’ve done our best to clean up the audio, but there are still some issues with the audio levels and background noise).

Strange Familiars - Episode 18: The Albatwitch

StrangeFamiliarsWith Albatwitch Day approaching, James and Timothy discuss albatwitches: the short in temper – as well as stature – hair covered ape-men said to haunt the riparian regions of South-Central Pennsylvania. We discuss albatwitch legends, some modern sightings, and the etymology of the name “albatwitch”. We also talk to Colin Schneider (aka The Crypto-Kid) about other “little people”, hairy dwarves, and diminutive humanoids from around the world.

Strange Familiars: Episode 15: Kelly, Don’t Pet the Devil Monkey

In this episode we talk with Aaron David and Kelly from the Charm the Water podcast. Aaron and Kelly talked about some strange things going on around their house during a recent Charm the Water episode. Some of the things they were describing set off some alarms for us and made us think: they are going to have a cryptid sighting soon. Not long after, we saw Aaron post on Facebook that they had seen a cryptid creature. We immediately asked them to come on Strange Familiars.

We talk about Charm the Wateroccult spirituality, magic, and more. We also discuss their cryptid sighting and how it may be connected with the occult. Timothy and James also give some hints about some of the things they are experiencing at Site 7 – an area we will talk a lot more about in the future.
