Join us on our journey through all things creepy and mysterious as we try to find out what that sound in the woods or that bump in the night really is. Have a story you'd like to tell us?

Woah a 2 parter! Our First! We. Are. Back,

Those pesky men in silver suits or whatever they are were bugging Elmer and Billy Ray and Glennie down in Kentucky. Are the little green men a hoax perpetuated by the 11 inhabitants of a small farmhouse, or did they actually see something that night in August?

This one is definitely one of those stories that has some truth behind it, but how much truth? That's for you to decide!

Here's some of the...

In this one, we talk about the Beast of Grafton, or the Grafton Monster, a little cryptid that bothered a small town in West Virginia. Recently, it's been a bit more well-known because of the video game Fallout 76, but even then how accurate is its portrayal?

Reese's mic is a little goofy sounding in this one, but don't worry, later episodes this ...
