Much as I love me some weird, I’m cautious about what I consume. I seldom have time to read up on the latest historic mysteries and odd sightings, and even less to winnow out the wheat from the chaff.
Internet to the rescue, and I don’t mean leaning on Wikipedia or [insert true believer or paranoid ranter here]:
- Project Archivist (podcast): Roejen and Lobo are open-minded but analytical, with an astounding variety of guests on all manner of strange and unusual topics. Recent episodes (they’re soon to celebrate their 200th!) include found audio of people chased by UFOs and weird/occult travel destinations.
- Astonishing Legends (podcast): a recent discovery, these guys are skeptical and thorough – if you’re interested in the Tamam Shud/Somerton Man case check out their 4 parter under “Mysterious Deaths”.
- UFO Trail (blog): “credible info on incredible topics” like the Emma Woods alien abduction scandal and Carol Rainey’s expose of Budd Hopkins. Jack Brewer is uncompromising in his criticism of the failures of the UFO community and their research.
- #FolkloreThursday (Twitter search): always certain to include choice myths like vampire fruit and Cornish owl men, as well as archaeological oddities and traditions from around the world.
