Strange Familiars explores a variety of subjects in a combination of storytelling, reporting, interviews, and discussion. Cryptids, ghosts, folklore, mythology, and paranormal topics.
Our first cycle of episodes will explore some local legends from York County, Pennsylvania beginning with Toad Road and the Seven Gates of Hell. In episode 3 we journey back to Toad Road and discuss ghosts, bigfoot, the Hidebehind, cryptids, iron furnaces, missing persons, and more - including some very dark, very real true crime stories which took place in the area.
