Richard Syrett welcomes an author/researcher who has collected newspaper reports about Bigfoot encounters in Pennsylvania from the 1830s through the 1920s. The articles in this volume show that Bigfoot is not new, nor is it a phenomenon confined to the Northwest United States and Canada. Bigfoot creatures seem to have been roaming Pennsylvania for as long as anyone can remember. Herein are strange tales of wild-women abducting children; frightening wild-men slaughtering livestock; and giant gorillas roaming over the hills of Pennsylvania. Read about huge, bare footprints found in the snow and mud; ape-men attacking humans; and weird, hairy beings creeping across farm, field, and forest.
GUEST: Timothy Renner has written articles for several publications including Morbid Curiosity, Weird USA, and Weird Pennsylvania. His illustrations have appeared in fanzines, comics, magazines, books, and on many record covers. He plays and sings folk music with his band Stone Breath. To date, they have released twelve full length albums and multiple EPs. Timothy has studied various paranormal phenomena centered in South Central Pennsylvania – with a particular focus on the legend of Toad Road and the Seven Gates of Hell.
Richard Syrett welcomes a researcher with a background in mechanical and electrical engineering to discuss one of the most bizarre and mysterious of all unexplained phenomena, Spontaneous Human Combustion.
Classic SHC cases are defined by the smoking, blistering, or burning of a person in the absence of a known identifiable nearby burn agent. Another hallmark of SHC is that while the victim’s body burns almost entirely, the surrounding environment is largely unscathed.
GUEST: Larry Arnold was trained in the methodology of science with an undergraduate major in mechanical engineering. He later worked for the private-sector in electrical engineering. Larry developed a burgeoning fascination with human consciousness potential and undertook a new province of study: the unexplained.
In 1976 he founded ParaScience International. As director of PSI, he combines his scientific background with investigating and describing the intriguing world of forteana – those unconventional subjects and weird events that fail to find acceptance, let alone explanation, within the boundaries of today’s science. Larry is internationally recognized for his pioneering research in spontaneous human combustion. He is the author of Ablaze! The Mysterious Fires of Spontaneous Human Combustion.
