3.18 | The Confessionals Crossover: Dogman Theory, Sky Creatures and Conspiracy Culture
Through deep research and high-strangeness storytelling, three brothers explore paranormal encounters and unexplained events. Collecting freaky listener stories and scouring the dusty pages of classic Fortean texts, the brothers use high-production sound design to set the scene for alleged real encounters with, Dogman, Poltergeists, Bigfoot, Fairy Folk, Humanoids, UFOs, Shadow People, and Sky Creatures.. just to name a few.
Attempting to parse out the fact within folklore, the brothers of the Hole banter about everything from bizarre historical mysteries to emerging clandestine conspiracy theories, often challenging their own beliefs and sometimes each other’s sanity.
Good humor, good drinks, and good discussion!
Have you ever overheard a co-worker shakily tell his story of a real encounter with a Dogman? Has your friend or weird uncle told you his close encounter with a reptilian humanoid from the sewer? Looking to corroborate your grandma’s true ghost stories? Were you born with a thirst for the mysterious? Well, sit back and pour yourself a big glass from the Belief Hole, my friend, and help us dig the weird!
Tony Merkel from The Confessionals podcast joins us as we dissect some conspiracy culture and recount true tales of coyote chomping dogmen, wounded sky beasts, alien abduction and Bigfoot bigotry. So turn up the volume and open your mind, as we set out into the void!
Also… Cynocephali breakdown, Tony’s love language, and Jon gets abducted!
