Giants & Fairies

Giants & Fairies

2020-12-1254:59

This week, we explore the history of two great legendary cryptids through the stories and folklore of the indigenous communities that created them: the Thunderbird and the Sasquatch. Has humankind been watched over by powerful birds and secretive ape-men for thousands of years? Are they prehistoric creatures that live on in hiding? Could a bigfoot sighting trigger the end of the world? We explore folklore from many different First Nations and Native American tribes, describing these creatures in many different ways: as protectors, as creators, as both good and bad omens, and most of all, as reminders to care for the land we all belong to.Send us your giant bird encounters, Sasquatch stories, weird dreams, drive suggestions, and pet conspiracy theories (or literally whatever you want!) to dumbandrestlesspodcast@gmail.com, or DM us on Instagram at @dumbandrestlesspodcast or Twitter at @dumbrestlesspod!

Tongue Tied Alien Mysteries

Tongue Tied Alien Mysteries

2020-11-1501:05:54

Join us this week for an exciting and mysterious adventure into the infamous Gobekli Tepe, a large and surprisingly well preserved ancient site that full of massive monoliths with insanely unique motifs and carvings. It's pretty dang old, but exactly how old is it? And why is it here? Could it be the work of aliens, or just some super crafty indigenous people with some outside influence? We walk through the thought experiments of some ancient alien theorists on who built it and why!Do aliens exist? These 60 kids from the Ariel School in Zimbabwe are absolutely convinced. We dive deep into the phenomenon of the early 90's where UFO's were seen in at least 5 different African countries, specifically the face to face contact with actual Grays and a playground full of children. Did any adult see to corroborate what they saw? OF COURSE NOT. Come with us as we talk about what they saw that day and how they were able to cope!As always, feel free to drop us a listener email, a story, an encounter or anything in-between at dumbandrestlesspodcast@gmail.com.
