    I’ll have to check this out – thanks for the recommendation, Shannon.

    For any of you who have not yet listened to any podcasts at all or any about the strange and mysterious, I’d recommend that the first place to start is one that has become my favorite podcast over the past few months, Shannon Legro’s own show, Into The Fray, which features co-hosts ufologist and author Ryan Sprague, and graphic artist Sam Shearon. The ITF episodes are always interesting, running the gamut from cryptozoology (more Sasquatch than other types), to UFOs and abductions, shadow people, ghosts, and hauntings. Shannon is articulate, has a very appealing voice, is a good interviewer, and really puts a whole lot of effort into researching topics, preparing for interviews, providing detailed info on her website about each guest and their own websites, and producing a very smooth and professional-sounding podcast. ITF occasionally has some people on who aren’t as credible as others, but that kind of goes with the territory for those reporting on Fortean phenomenon, doesn’t it?

    I also like the OK Talk podcast and the Euphemet podcast, although both of their hosts may tend to be a bit too eager to believe any strange account, and the latter podcast has been on hiatus with no new episodes since 2016. I started listening to ITF host Ryan Sprague’s own UFO-oriented podcast Somewhere In The Skies, and it’s quite good, too – he picks very good guests.

    I’ve been listening to Expanded Perspectives, as well, which appears to have over 100 episodes on many really interesting topics, but their hosts are rather loose and casual when it comes to accuracy (while defending the idea of ancient giants in America, when they appeared as guests on ITF, they claimed there were 8′ NBA players and tribes in Africa of 8′ people, both untrue – see ). Plus, they seem simply gullible, willing to believe anyone (e.g. they had reality TV pseudo-scientist/fringe historian/geologist Scott Wolter on their show and even though Wolter blatantly lied through his teeth about always following the scientific method and never having a preconceived notion of which theory to follow but instead relying only on the evidence, something he has never done on his show America Unearthed, to my knowledge before I stopped wasting time watching his show – see for thorough, detailed debunking of all of Wolter’s ridiculous, utterly laughable claims, they doted on him and appear to believe every word he has ever spewed). Finally, they consistently use substandard English (e.g. they do not know the difference between “I,” “me,” and “myself,” they use “they was” instead of “there were,” etc…) which bugs the heck out of me. It’s a shame, because they make some good points at times and have dozens and dozens of episodes on fascinating topics, but I’m not sure how many of those episodes I’ll download before giving up on the show. On topics about which I know nothing, I simply doubt I can trust what they are saying; it’s that credibility thing that I have previously stated is essential in the study of unexplained phenomena.

    If anyone else listens to podcasts about Fortean phenomena and has recommendations about ones that are interesting but the hosts aren’t drinking the Kool Aid of quacks, hoaxers, and wackjobs, please post some suggestions.

    To be fair, I’ve listened to a few more episodes of Expanded Perspectives and discovered that the show’s hosts can indeed sometimes be objective with regard to sasquatches and UFOs, attributing some of those sightings to misidentification with known, explainable objects rather than Fortean phenomenon. In fact, they state that they are 50-50 on the authenticity of the Patterson-Gimlin film, which is more skeptical than I am about the film.

    However, they also claimed there is some “scientific proof” behind the Slender Man, which cuts into their credibility as this is very obviously an urban myth (not to mention it is irresponsible to give it any credence whatsoever in light of the attack a year or two back in Wisconsin in which two teenage girls almost killed a friend, claiming that “the Slender Man told us to.”). It turned out that their “scientific proof” was nothing more than a few old myths about a skinny shadow man, nothing scientific about it.

    I wish these guys were more careful about their facts and used more common sense – they’d have a great podcast if they did.
