On today's episode, I am joined by Adam Benedict of the Pine Barren Institute to discuss his first book Monsters in Print along with his website. Adam Benedict, a native Wisconsinite, is a designer by trade and a researcher by choice. Drawn to the weird at a young age thanks to the likes of Robert Stack and Leonard Nimoy, Benedict has spent a good portion of his life studying up on the weirder parts of history. Realizing that the knowledge he had gained might be of some interest to others, Benedict founded The Pine Barrens Institute in 2015. Since its creation, The PBI has become a well-received online gathering point for general Midwest Strangeness. So sit back, relax, and enjoy. Monsters in Print will make the perfect Christmas gift for the seasoned or budding Cryptozoologist.  Monsters in print can be found here (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YMYQJLV/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_tkin_p1_i0) . To follow Adam Benedict just head on over to the Pine Barren Institute's website here (https://pinebarrensinstitute.com) .  Here you can find links to Adam's Social Media, along with articles on cryptic sightings and other interviews he has done. **Proud Member of Straight Up Strange Productions** Follow Straight Up Strange on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for more shows just like mine.

Welcome to Season 2 of Obscure Anomalies. When it comes to a superstitious group of people, the realm of oceanic navigation might be on the top of its list.  In fact, many of the superstitions used by sailors have become common place in the world.  From “ Red Sky at night, Sailors delight; Red Sky in the morning, Sailors take warning,” to the idea of Friday being considered on of the most unlucky days to begin a voyage,” to Davy Jones’ Locker.  The list of good and bad superstitions is endless.  But there may be one legend that stands above all others, and this would be the Mysterious Flying Dutchman. Join me as we discuss the legends, the origins, and the sightings of the mysterious and otherworldly specter. #JOINTHEOBSCURE Proud member of STRAIGHT UP STRANGE Productions Follow Obscure Anomalies on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to stay up to date on the latest news and behind the scenes info.

A little shorter Episode this week than normal, but still a good one. On todays episode we travel back in time 14 years to when a rural Thailand farming community claimed to have an encounter with a small, red-eyed, yellowish entity frolicking in the air above the fields.  Was it an alien? A ghost? A cryptid? Or was it a figment of the villagers imagination? #JoinTheObscure Shoutouts this week to Weird Tales Radio Show (https://www.urbanfantasist.com/weird-tales-radio-show) Spell Con Tickets - Click Here (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/spell-con-tickets-65608868893) Follow Me Instagram - @obscureanomalies (https://www.instagram.com/obscureanomalies/) Twitter - @OAnomalies (https://twitter.com/oanomalies) Facebook - Obscure Anomalies (https://www.facebook.com/OAnomalies/) Want Merch? - Check out my Threadless Store (https://obscureanomalies.threadless.com/) Proud Member of Straight Up Strange Productions (https://www.straightupstrange.com/) Sources The Rice Field Scarecrow Encounter (https://www.phantomsandmonsters.com/2014/01/the-rice-field-scarecrow-encounter.html) - PhantomsandMonsters.com The Scarecrow of Chiang Rai, Thailand - Cryptopia.com (https://www.cryptopia.us/site/2010/12/scarecrow-of-chiang-rai-thailand/ )

Have you ever met a more adorable creature than the otter? I mean, they hold hands, nap while swimming on their back, and have a tendancy to steal your soul. Yeah, you heard me. One of the more terrifying legends to come out of the Pacific Northwest is that of a half man, half otter that steals souls, transforming you into a half man, half otter yourself. That's right, this weeks episode is on the Tlingit legend of the Kushtaka. Get ready to never look at an otter the same way again. #JoinTheObscure Spell Con - October 19, 2019 from 2 - 11pm Katies of Smithtown, Smithtown New York Tickets Available Here SpellCon Tickets (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/spell-con-tickets-65608868893) Straight Up Strange  - A World of High Strangeness (https://www.straightupstrange.com) Obscure Anomalies on Social Instagram - @obscureanomalies (https://www.instagram.com/obscureanomalies/) Twitter - @OAnomalies (https://twitter.com/OAnomalies) Facebook - Obscure Anomalies (https://www.facebook.com/OAnomalies/) Sacred Text - Tlingit Folklore (http://www.sacred-texts.com/nam/nw/tmt/index.htm)
