Timothy gives a list of Christmas lore, portents, and folk magic directives collected from various sources and talks with author, musician, filmmaker, and folklore collector Gerry Milnes about some wondrous strange Old Christmas folk traditions from West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Timothy talks with Dave about his various paranormal experiences from Astral Sasquatch which manifested in his residence to ghosts, poltergeist-like activity, Flannel Man, and more. We’re bringing WOO for the holidays!
Strange Familiars Presents will be shorter episodes telling stories – folklore, oddities, weird history, and more. Think of them as mini episodes of Strange Familiars without the discussion and/or interview segments.
The first episode presents some tales of strange and fearful hauntings from Pennsylvania.
Timothy and James continue relating stories and experiences from Site 7 and the surrounding area. As we started investigating the area, a series of strange stories started turning up regarding a family of albinos, creature sightings, mysterious drones, and more strangeness. We investigate a nearby bigfoot sighting and collect an older report of multiple creatures crossing a highway close to Site 7. We also present on-site audio collected from several Site 7 visits ranging from natural sounds to possible stone throws, wood knocks, evp, and strange voices.
We’ve been hinting about Site 7 on previous shows. We have an ongoing investigation at Site 7 but we remain unsure what we are dealing with – we have reports of mystery lights, orbs, bigfoot creatures, and possible spirit activity. Tonight we’ll talk with Chris, who was the first person who told me about Site 7 as well as Lori and Jeff who have had several strange experiences at Site 7. James and I will relate our own experiences at Site 7, some other findings, and on-site audio on a future episode. (Please note: there are some issues with the audio in this episode. We’ve done our best to clean up the audio, but there are still some issues with the audio levels and background noise).
With Albatwitch Day approaching, James and Timothy discuss albatwitches: the short in temper – as well as stature – hair covered ape-men said to haunt the riparian regions of South-Central Pennsylvania. We discuss albatwitch legends, some modern sightings, and the etymology of the name “albatwitch”. We also talk to Colin Schneider (aka The Crypto-Kid) about other “little people”, hairy dwarves, and diminutive humanoids from around the world.
Albatwitch Day: https://www.facebook.com/events/1882624695357956/ Albatwitch Day is October 14, 2017 in Columbia, PA from 11am-4pm. Timothy and James from Strange Familiars will be attending. Stone Breath will be playing some music. Timothy will be giving a lecture on Bigfoot in Pennsylvania…many more activities planned throughout the day. Stop out if you can.
James and Timothy hunt down a UFO landing site in rural Pennsylvania. Was it all a hoax or did something unknown land there in 1977? We also interview multiple guests about their UFO sightings and what they think UFOs might be.
In this episode we talk about the ghosts of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Featuring interviews with author Mark Nesbitt, Patrick from the Gettysburg Paranormal Association, and Jack from the Cashtown Inn. James also tells about some of the strangeness he experienced staying at some of the haunted inns around Gettysburg.
In this episode we talk with Aaron David and Kelly from the Charm the Water podcast. Aaron and Kelly talked about some strange things going on around their house during a recent Charm the Water episode. Some of the things they were describing set off some alarms for us and made us think: they are going to have a cryptid sighting soon. Not long after, we saw Aaron post on Facebook that they had seen a cryptid creature. We immediately asked them to come on Strange Familiars.
We talk about Charm the Water, occult spirituality, magic, and more. We also discuss their cryptid sighting and how it may be connected with the occult. Timothy and James also give some hints about some of the things they are experiencing at Site 7 – an area we will talk a lot more about in the future.
