This is a sort of compilation of some video interviews I have done over the last year. I realize that many people would prefer audio to video, and since these were previously only available as video, I put them all together here. We start with our conversation at Albatwitch Day 2017, where Seriah, Timothy Renner, James Kibler, and Adam Sayne all trade off some strange encounters they have had. Then we hear from Joe about his weird void in the woods, and Dustin about his strange Dream Club experience. Finally we present the interview with Travis Walton and Jennifer Stein from the Travis Premiere in Ithaca, Ny, as well as a talk with Audrey Starborn.
Outro Music is from Tim Renner's band Albatwitch, with Pin.
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.
In this episode Timothy introduces James, his new partner for paranormal investigations – and a voice you’ll be hearing a lot more on Strange Familiars. They talk about some weird happenings from James’ childhood: Were bigfoot creatures stalking around his family home? What was the strange thing is father saw crouched along Toad Road? (They also promised to get to some of Timothy’s experiences but ran out of time. Look for those on a future episode.)
For episode 13 we talk with Jim Pyre. Jim is a Strange Familiars listener and he reached out to us with some of his experiences with the strange and paranormal. We talked about will-o-the-wisps, the fae folk, grassman, hatman and more – including some thoughts about what may be behind some of these phenomena.
We’ll be featuring listener stories on occasion and we would like to do compilation shows featuring multiple listeners – so even if you just have a short encounter, we would love to hear from you.
