The Stanford UFO Encounter

The Kentucky Cannibal

In this episode, we give the new Dune trailer 2 thumbs up! (We’re not sure if Three-Fingered Jack can do that, though.). Also, we delve into the Old West legend of Levi Boone Helm, otherwise known as the Kentucky Cannibal. This one is a story which deserves to be more widely known, but it’s not exactly for the squeamish.

Bobby Mackey’s Music World, Part 2

In this episode, we do a deep dive into the events surrounding Carl Lawson’s possession, including the discovery of Johanna’s famous diary, the closing (and reopening) of the portal in the well, and possibly the worst pick-up line of all time. Also we cover some amazing personal experiences inside and outside the nightclub.

Swift’s Silver Mine and Other Lost Kentucky Treasures

In today’s episode, we explore the facts and the myths (mostly the myths) about one of Kentucky’s oldest legends, the Swift Silver Mine. Even though the story predates the state itself, people are still looking for this lost treasure. Bonus content: parrot squawk!

Witch Tales of Kentucky

Today’s episode is pretty much a grab bag of weirdness: first, we discuss some legends featuring Kentucky witches, then we talk about some Bracken County lore. Also, my new kitten Lazslo Cravensworth makes several guest appearances.

Witch Tales of Kentucky

The Kentucky Goblins

In this episode, we talk about one of the weirdest incidents ever reported in the state: the 1955 Kelly-Hopkinsville Encounter. Investigators agreed that the Sutton/Lankford family had been terrorized by something, but what was it? We don’t know either, but at least we enjoy trying to figure it out.
