Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 271 The Shape Of Things To Come From Elsewhere with Chris Evers
For many, the term UFO is synonomous with the the term Flying Saucer but for many witnesses and experiencers, they see anything but a flying saucer.

Joining me to discuss his new book "The Shape of Things to Come From Elsewhere" is one of British Ufology's leading lights, Chris Evers. With an interest peaked through a sighting as a teenager in East Yorkshire, Chris has been investigating, researching, writing and holding conferences about UFO's for 50 years.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 267 The Yuletide Guide to High Strangeness with Tobias Wayland
This time of year is full of high strangeness hiding in plain sight all around the world.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 266 Europe's Roswell with Mark Olly
We head back to January 1983 and the coastal area of Aberystwyth in Wales. One local farmer received quite the shock one morning whilst out inspecting his flock to discover his fields strewn with debris. On alerting the authorities, he was informed a plane had crashed, despite their being no evidence of any plane coming down and to his amazement, a large group descended on the fields to clear up the wreckage. The following day, he was shocked to realise that they and all the debris from the fields had vanished and things only got weirder from there. In his new book, Europe's Roswell: 40 years since impact, Mark Olly takes us on the hunt for clues in this often overlooked and misaligned case from the early 80s.

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 262 Humanoids and High Strangeness with Preston Dennett
In his latest book, "Humanoids and High Strangeness", Preston Dennett has collected 20 incredible encounters that show us that the subject of alien contact can often be even stranger than we imagine.

Some of the witness testimonies in the book will make you shake your head as we try to untangle the question, "How strange can strange really be?"

Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 254 The Pascagoula Abduction with Philip Mantle
On October 11th 1973, two friends were planning on spending a warm autumn evening with a spot of fishing near their workplace. Neither of them could imagine what would occur that night, when rather than catching fish, it seems something decided to catch them. Over the last few years, Philip Mantle along with his co-author Dr Irena Scott have discovered a realm of supporting information that has made the Pascoula Incident the most witnesses abduction experience. Building on his friendship with Calvin Parker, the supporting evidence, new witnesses and fellow abductees make this case the most compelling of its kind. Sadly, the day after we recorded this interview, Calvin passed away and as such, this episode is dedicated to the man who made me question everything I ever thought I knew about the abduction phenomena.
