Alison and Timothy have a discussion about some antique photos which purport to show paranormal entities. First they discuss an article which is being shared on social media of a photo which is supposed to be the oldest bigfoot photo and the many reasons why they doubt this photo is what it is claimed to be. In the second part of the show they discuss the Cottingly fairy photographs, ghost photographs, spirit photography, and more.
Episode 37 notes and links:
The cover image is from a photograph in Timothy’s collection. This is not the image we discuss in this episode and is, in fact, a man holding a bear skin. It is an example of the type of old photograph which often gets shared as a “bigfoot photo”.

Seriah is joined by Gary Lachman to talk about his latest book, Dark Star Rising. This is not as political as it may seem on the service, but instead they explore the factors in Magick and Esoterica that connect to current events, and the very strange Synchronicities that have accompanied the Trump presidency.
Outro Music is by Eliza Rickman, Devil's Flesh and Bones from her album O You Sinners!
