Description

We're a brother and sister duo that love to talk about the mysterious, unusual, and unknowable. Cryptids, unsolved murders and disappearances, UFOs, ghosts, conspiracy theories, demons... we love it all.

It's time for episode 56 and this one is all about the boys on the tracks. Late one night in August of 1987, two teenage boys are run over by a fast-moving train as they lay together on the tracks... but it turns out they were already dead. Who had it out for these kids? And why?
We are revisiting the phenomenon of Mothman, but this time focusing on the flap (see what we did there?) of recent sightings in the Chicago area. Is it another Mothman similar to the one spotted in Point Pleasant all those years ago? Is it a Thunderbird, a legendary creature from Native American lore? Is it mass hysteria, a giant condor, or an adventurous person with an elaborate costume? See what we think...
What explanation can there be when a village of 88 people is simply... abandoned? Was it something as logical as a lack of resources and necessities? Did mermaids lure them to their watery graves? A government experiment? Or is it something to do with those lights that hover above the tree line...
An odd episode for us -- make sure you listen to both stories! The theme is haunted parks & woods. Justine tells us about Griffith Park in Los Angeles, a massive public space with a wicked curse in its history. Gray tells us about The Devil's Tramping Ground in Bear Creek, North Carolina, a camping site that may be a recreation spot for Satan himself...
Imagine having a relaxing day out with your wife and daughter, snapping a few photos to remember the time you had, and then developing the photos only to find what looks like a god dang ASTRONAUT in the background that you KNOW wasn't there on your nature jaunt. That's what happened to Jim Templeton in 1964. Listen to find out what he saw, and what we think the explanation might be...
When Lars Mittank arrived in Bulgaria with his friends, on vacation from their home in Germany, things were relaxed and carefree. But by the end of the trip, Lars had become paranoid and anxious, leaving his belongings at the airport and hopping a fence to run away from threats unknown, never to be seen again. What on earth happened in the span of those few days?
Last seen on September 10th, 2001, Sneha Anne Philip was a medical school resident in a happy marriage. But when she never returned home, the questions started to arise: did she perish in the attacks on the World Trade Center? Did she end up at the wrong person's apartment after a few drinks? Or did she, as some suggest, start a whole new life...
The Axeman, or The Boogeyman as he was also known, was a killer who targeted Italian grocers in New Orleans in the early 20th century. He would pry off a panel of their door, kill or seriously maim them with an axe or straight razor, and then disappear as quickly as he arrived. Who was he? What was his motivation? And what does jazz music have to do with ANY of it? Listen and find out...
The idea of a 20-foot T. Rex roaming the Northern Territory of Australia seems both fascinating and fantastic. Is there actually a descendent of the era of dinosaurs mutilating cattle in the Outback, or are people mistaking a present day lizard or bird for something more far-fetched?
Can you imagine if your mind's eye was blind? You try to think of your best friend's face or your favorite beach spot or your childhood dog and... nothing materializes. Or maybe that's everyday reality for you and you had no idea there was a name for it or that it wasn't the norm. It's called aphantasia, from the Greek for "no imagination", and it's a damn wild mystery of the brain. 
In July of 1518 the city of Alsace, in what is now modern day France, saw a woman start dancing... erratically, uncontrollably, for days. Soon others joined her until there were as many as 500 people dancing in the streets, possibly even to their deaths. What started this dance mania? And what ultimately stopped it? Join us to hear our thoughts...
Since August 2007 at least 20 detached human feet have been found on the coasts of the Salish Sea in British Columbia, Canada, and Washington state. I mean, if that's not enough to draw you in, I'M NOT SURE WHAT IS.
On New Year's Day, two years in a row, a combined thousands of dead red-winged blackbirds were found on the streets and lawns of Beebe, Arkansas. What could have made such a mass death possible? Was it natural or supernatural? Was it linked to the thousands of fish that died in the same area? Listen to what we think in episode 44...
For this episode we decided to not only talk about aquatic cryptids but specifically ones that are believed to live in our home state of Maine. Gray tells us about The Pocomoonshine Lake Monster, a giant, eel-like creature swimming around in the northern part of the state, and Justine talks about Cassie, a sea serpent supposedly spotted in the waters of Casco Bay and beyond. 
Two men, dressed impeccably in suits, are found dead on a hill in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, wearing rain coats and, bizarrely enough, lead masks covering their eyes. What brought them there? What were the masks meant to protect against? Were their deaths accidental or something more otherwordly? Listen and find out what we think...
You had to know we couldn't watch Tiger King and do an episode about the biggest mystery of all (besides how Joe Exotic's eyebrow ring is holding on for dear life): what happened to Carole Baskin's husband, Don Lewis? Did he crash his plan off the Gulf of Mexico? Did he plan his own disappearance? Did Carole feed him to the tigers? Listen and see what we think...
Out in the vast expanse of the Gobi Desert there is believed to be a creature so devastating it has been dubbed The Mongolian Death Worm. Rarely seen but commonly feared, it has powers not typically known to living creatures... but is it real, or merely an urban legend? Give this episode a listen and hear what we think... 
In episode 39 we tackle the mystery of our own brains. How is it that many of us remember things that never truly happened? We vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison, or seeing a movie starring Sinbad as a genie, or SWEAR the name is spelled Berenstein... but "reality" tells us otherwise. What can explain these discrepancies? 
This week we delve into some unexplained deaths... or are they both murders? Gray talks about the Setagaya/Miyazawa family murders, a family of 4 brutally slain in the Setagaya ward of Tokyo, Japan. Justine talks about Joshua Maddux, aka The Boy in the Chimney... missing for 7 years and found mere blocks from his home in the chimney of a derelict cabin. What happened to these people?
We finally delve into the mystery that is the Jersey Devil. Is there actually a bizarre creature roaming the Pine Barrens, letting out bloodcurdling shrieks for unfortunate witnesses to hear? Is it simply the result of historical disdain and gossip? Hear what we think in this week's episode...

Regarding the weird footprint left by what he shot at that he he thought was a huge 400 pound dog like creature. It. sounds like whatever is there has the ability to make those who physically see it, see it as something they can relate to or something easier on their mind. Every time I hear this story it reminds me of the Dreamcatcher movie. Perhaps seeing it's actually self is so scary that it'll break ones mind?? It's just so bizarre & totally strange, I believe that something definitely happened & is well past our current level capability of comprehending at our current Mental & Technological Level.

Sounds like a dimensional slip of sorts. As if he didn't shift forward or backwards, he shifted sideways but in the same moment.
