Nancy was a kind and innocent woman. Until that sinister day. And then, she wasn't.
Sometimes stories of patriotism live far outside the reach of our darkest imaginations.
My gosh it seemed like just last week we posted the beginning of our Bigfoot duet and already it's coming to a close. So many questions have you? (Said by a Bigfoot Yoda). Well, rest assured my little Bigfoot aficionado. Today, we answer them. You know - important things like has any of the group ever seen a hobo with a lantern? Did Unearthing Paranormalcy host Amy see a Bigfoot or was it a boar or her dad coming to steal her fish in the night. (No other theories were presented). And exactly how close to a gorilla’s penis has Amy gotten in order to properly assess the uh, girth of the great apes? And is Ben Dover's cousin really Eileen Dover or just a funny Jason had that you can write in your diary tonight <scribble scribble, April 11th, 2019... Jason made a funny joke today>
We once again team up with an all-star cast from another podcast we love – Unearthing Paranormalcy. Amy, Dave, Chad, and Eli host the show which spans obscure paranormal topics such as The Mothman, Time Travel, Alien Races, Thought Form Entities, Madame Blavatsky among others. They mix deep research with comedic sprinkling making the topics entertaining. You can check them out on Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever else you get your podcasts.
Enjoy the show.
Grab a cold pint of your favorite Irish brew and snuggle up to your three favorite Irish lads this St. Patrick's Day. On today's show, we break down 6 classic Irish drinks with the help of Irish drinking expert Oisin. We cover Irish folklore, history, misconceptions, St. Paddy's Day in the homeland, and just all-around-Irish tomfoolery. What sort of things you might ask? Well did you know that Ireland may or may not have had aquatic sheep? And exactly how hard is it to fish while intoxicated off the coast of Galway? And what would you personally do if a leprechaun touched your dingle?
Everyone has heard of the patron saint Patrick who chased menacing, reptilian beasts out of Ireland and into the sea. But few have heard of the not-even-close-to-patron saint, but all-around-awesome Irish beer-reviewer, Oisin. On today's show, to celebrate St. Paddy's Day Oisin graces us with some Irish folklore and sets up a difficult to pronounce Irish name game for us to botch. How exactly is Oisin pronounced? How about Caoimhe? Niamh? They're not how you're thinking that's for sure. Pour yourself a green pint and join us for some laughs as we get an early start on the biggest drinking holiday in America.

Exactly how much do you know about that jolly man who miraculously slithers his plump frame down your chimney every December 24th? Is he a figment of your imagination? A capitalistic ploy conjured up in a department store board room to sell more argyle Christmas sweaters? A 7th century philanthropian? Well yes, actually, all of those, yet so much more. Take a dive down the Grognostics Christmas chimney for some yule-tide exploration on the origins of Christmas, drink some holiday brews, visit the North Pole with our correspondent Sir Matthew (41:00), and get a look at Christmas through the eyes of an 11 year-old, comedically of course. (57:00) Happy Holidays and to all a good night.
