Episode 75: The Gowrow
This week, we discuss another piece of grade A choice Americana. The Gowrow is a twenty foot long reptilian monstrosity with ten-inch claws, giant tusks, and a spine lined with bony spikes leading to a razor sharp tail! According to Arkansas legend, these beasts roam the forest of the Ozarks looking for cattle to eat, men to smash, and flat bars to maim.

Episode 73: Charterhouse: Remastered
This week, we revisit and rework a classic story from way back in August of 2021. Sit back and let updated sound design and a new approach to mastering transport you……deep in the craggy bluffs of the Mendips in Southwest England, to the isolated hamlet of Charterhouse. Standing in stark contrast to this area’s serene natural beauty is it’s penchant for some very strange secrets. It’s 1900 year history is riddled with stories of ghostly military men, phantom hitchhikers, cave-ridden witches, and disembodied laughter intertwined with Arthurian legend. And none of that is even the scariest part! LIKE A WIRE BRUSH ON POLISHED WOOD!Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only.

Episode 70: The Mothman Phenomenon Part Four - Harbinger of Doom
On 26 April 1986 at the No. 4 reactor the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, near the city of Pripyat in the north of the Ukranian SSR in the Soviet Union, one of only two nuclear energy accidents rated at seven, the maximum severity, on the International Nuclear Event Scale took place when, while running a test, the operators accidentally dropped power output to near-zero, due partially to xenon poisoning. After the scheduled shut down,  a rupturing of the fuel channels led to a complete meltdown of the reactor’s core and the great nuclear disaster to have ever happened. Later, it came to light that the people involved in the accident experienced a series of strange events revolving around sightings of a mysterious creature described as a large, dark, and mutated man with gigantic wings and piercing red eyes. People affected by this phenomena experienced horrific nightmares, threatening phone calls and first hand encounters with the winged beast which became known as the Black Bird of Chernobyl. Could this be our Mothman from Point Pleasant? If so, one thing is clear. MOTHMAN DEFINITELY GOT BETTER AT THE WHOLE HARBINGER OF DOOM THING!Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only.

In this, we have for you a very important community project. Strange Semantics is an in-depth look at the language that we use to describe this incredible field that we find ourselves in. Terms like paranormal, supernatural, otherworldly, supranatural, supernormal, paraweird, and Fortean are examined through the input of 30 of the most fascinating people in the Fortean community. Podcasters, authors, philosophers, and artists from all over the world provide invaluable insight on a criminally overlooked aspect of Fortean studies. So, sit back and enjoy a trip across the spectrum of paranormal research! Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only.

Episode 69: The Mothman Phenomenon Part Three - First Contact
This week, we’re focusing solely on the universally agreed upon encounter with the Mothman. On November 15, 1966, quite possibly one of the most important encounters with anomalous phenomena took place when two young couples from Point Pleasant, Roger and Linda Scarberry, and Steve and Mary Mallette, told police they saw a large grey creature whose eyes "glowed red" when the car's headlights picked it up. This encounter would set the tone for a year of terrifying encounters and light a wildfire of controversy all over the country. This is the encounter that drew John Keel to Point Pleasant and made the Mothman a household name. MARY HYER MADE A DECISION THAT CHANGED THE WORLD!Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only.

Campfire Classics Collection Vol. 7 - The Tell-Tale Heart

Campfire Classics Collection Vol. 7 - The Tell-Tale Heart
This week we have a seminal piece from one of the most important authors of the 19th century. Edgar Allen Poe initiated the modern detective story. He was the first to truly develop the gothic horror story. He was, quite possibly, the most significant early forerunner of the science fiction form. There is a reason that the vast majority of you, regardless of your general interest in classic literature, know the man. His contributions to humanity at large thrust him from the depths of literary obscurity where so many brilliant minds languished forever; into the shining lights of pop culture and general world history. Today we are going to experience how he accomplished that tricky tricky deed: drama and fear. His stories had a way of striking at the heart of humanity’s shadow. This story is one of the most significant examples. Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only.
