The Mothman

The Mothman On this Podcast we set our sights on some big game. A curious cryptid and modern horror story that came to be known by one name, The Mothman, Described as the twisted image of a man with huge wings and glowing red eyes. Witnesses have reported eerily similar encounters with the mysterious beast ever since the sightings began in 1966. The sleepy West Virginia town of Point Pleasant had up to 100 eye witnesses, some claiming to have...
Slenderman

Slenderman

The Slenderman On this episode we look at the horror fairy-tale of the Slenderman. A modern myth born on the internet, whose digital tentacles have stretched horrifically into the real world. The terrifying fiction morphed into a debated urban legend and finally into a very real inspiration for an unbelievable crime. A spectre of a tall thin man with a white and expressionless head atop a well suited body akin to Stretch Armstrong. He is often depicted with wild tentacles in...

The Slenderman – The Beginning

Nothing makes monsters scarier than when they go after kids. It's Freddy Kreuger's whole thing and Michael Myers spent Halloween 4 and 5 looking for his niece. There's something inherently scary about childhood and fear, possibly the fact that as a sensation it's much harder to control when you're young. The Slender Man has this creepy link as well, with some of the mythology about the character alluding to how he makes 'proxies' out of his victims, or people...

Lycanthropy diagnosed as a mental illness

In our Werewolves Podcast, we talk about lycanthropy as a mental illness as opposed to the actual shape shifting of a human being into feral animal operating only on the basest levels of the brain. This was a huge threat to Renaissance high society and showed the fears of allowing the animalism mind to gain precedence over human rational. John Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi arrived on stage in 1614 and told the story of a man who fell to...

St Anthony’s Fire

Ergotism is the effect of long term poisoning due to the ingestion of the alkaloids that infects rye and other cereals. It also may have been the cause of a mass hallucination that caused a rash of werewolf sightings in 16th century Europe. I have eaten of the root of St. Anthony's fire, ergo, I have become the wolf. Though this particular Wikipedia entry does not site ergotism as the cause of the reports of werewolves and baby snatching canines it does...

The stories of werewolves have permeated every facet of media with the creatures now synonymous with tales of vampires and ghoulish monsters.

Old stories abound about a Shawnee shaman who was killed in wolf form for abusing his powers. Sound bananas? Absolutely! However there have been several sightings of the Beast Between the Lakes including this one What do you think? Are these stories the dog's bollocks or merely dog merde?
Feral Children The Ukranian Wolf Girlvideo

Feral children

Here is an 8 minute video on Oxana Malaya, the Ukrainian Wolf Child. She's someone we've spoken about before on the Podcast. Feral children are human beings abandoned by society and who are taken in, or take in with, wild animals. Over time they begin to exhibit the traits, behaviours, instincts and even the strengths and skills of these animals. The Oxana Malaya case became famous when in 2006 Channel 4 screened a documentary about her life and rehabilitation in the...

What really is the difference between Manatees and Dugongs?

In our Mermaids episode we mention the long held theory that the Manatee and it's seagrass eating cousin the Dugong may account for many of the historical Mermaid sightings. That and rum, cabin fever, scurvy, hallucinations and lies. Oh, and possibly Mermaids. But what we found ourselves asking was: what really is the difference between Manatees and Dugongs? Unsurprisingly it's not a huge amount really. Both are of the Sirenia species of sea mammals, and as mentioned earlier they are cousins. They are however...

The Missing Link doesn’t exist, it may just be a different branch off our...

Here's a really interesting article by the Observation Deck website entitled The Missing Link FAQs they explain the rise of the 'Missing Link' in popular science. The 'Missing Link' is the idea that there is a stage in human evolution as yet undiscovered that bridges our ancestry with the rest of the animal kingdom. It seems the term was coined in 1851 by Charles Lyell in relation to an undocumented rock formation stage which he dubbed 'the missing link'. Later in...

Sri Lankan mermaid princess

Manatees need love too: The sexual appeal of manatees

The first written record of manatees North America was in Christopher Columbus' log of his voyage in 1492. He wrote of "female forms" rising out of the sea, "but they were not as beautiful as represented." In those times, many folk tales and a lot of the maps of the era were riddled with depictions of mermaids, so it's not that strange that a never-before-seen animal could be confused with the fabled mermaid or siren. Especially by a bunch...
