Podcast 46 – Monsters

Laine triumphantly returns in this show about all sorts of monsters and cryptids. We’ll be looking at creatures from folklore to netlore, and figuring out which beasties are our favorites along the way.

  • Only one book referenced tonight, Daniel Cohen’s Encyclopedia of Monsters
  • Here’s a link to the (now discredited) series of post-tsunami sea creature photos Cory mentioned. The critters are real, but the story associated with them is not.
  • If you’re fascinated by the netlore Laine shares, particularly that of the Slender Man, check out the “Marble Hornets” web series

  1. Hey Cory and Laine!

    I absolutely loved this episode! I thought everything you talked about was really interesting, and it gave me some things to think about and look into further. I live in the Pacific Northwest, but I also lived in Scotland for a bit, so creatures like Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster really draw my attention and my interest. I’m also going to be looking further into some of the things you mentioned, like the Jersey Devil and BEK, the latter of which just sounds terrifying.

    Thanks for an awesome show!

  2. I was listening to this while lying in bed in the dark and admit the conversation about the black eyed kids and slender man was freaking me out!
    Was great to hear Laine’s beauful voice again, excellent episode.

    Oh, and Bigfoot Lives! 🙂

  3. Watched it late, but loved this episode! And don’t feel bad Laine – I too have seen a large stump (mine was slightly charred from a lightning strike) that I thought was a bigfoot.

  4. This podcast really resonated with me. I’d never heard of the term ‘shadow people’ before, but I’ve regularly seen beings (for want of a better word) like these since I was a child. For most of my life they have terrified me, now-a-days I’m not so scared – at least most of the time. I bumped into one (it went through me) just the other night and and woke my really down-to-earth husband up with my startled “Oh’! Also last week I was out cross-country skiing in a remote part of the woods and I saw what I thought was another skier lumbering (best way to describe it) down the hill to me, but when I skied up to say hi, there were no ski tracks, only fresh snow – I was just out for a ski, not in the forest doing anything woo-woo. Really enjoying going through your podcasts, I know very little about the things you talk about, but they certainly tie in with my own life experiences. Thank you.
