Regardless of the originating culture, folklore is replete with tales of shape-shifting monstrosities and individuals morphing into werewolves or other half-man, half-beast creatures. But what about the more contemporary narratives? Is there more to it than folklore? In this episode, we look at these legendary beings and ponder Navajo encounters, the enigmatic stories surrounding Tasmania's thylacine, and even nocturnal encounters with gargoyle women in black. Our exploration takes us into the secretive realms of cults dedicated to summoning monsters, the occult dealings involving British intelligence agencies, shape-shifting witch cats, and a plethora of other intriguing encounters.
For our Plus+ members, we investigate the controversial linguistic origins of the concept of the Aryans and explore their migration into the cradle of civilization in India, from which their influence radiated to the far reaches of the globe. We examine the intriguing connections between enigmatic stone towers, celestial constellations, and hear the theories of a man deeply fixated on phallus energies.
