The Strange Goodnight

Goodnight Halloween?

Goodnight Cattle Mutilation

It's a mysterious thing to think that something out there is mutilating livestock. Humans do well enough and have access enough that it is bizarre to think that someone is going to a lot of trouble to engage with these animals in such specific and troubling ways. What do you think is going on? Is it strange or is it time to say goodnight?

Goodnight Waterworld

Human beings have always had fascination with water. I think there has been a love-hate relationship for the entire existence of maritime exploration. There have been stories of the unknown that we encounter on the water. We've tangled with giant monsters, sea gods, disappearing islands, deep sea exploration, and even found some of these things aren't as lost as we thought. I remember when that scientist from Japan captured live video of a giant squid, but no sooner had we established the existence of one creature when we'd moved on to another. The colossal squid (larger by mass) was just around the corner, and there is still a thought that are larger, more mythical creatures lurking still.

Most of the earth's surface is made up of water. Is it any real wonder that there would be a large number of disappearances? Is there any real reason to think that people simply make mistakes and sometimes pay for them with their life, or is there really weirdness to blame? Can the ocean swallow an entire continent without any evidence to show for it?

In the end, maybe humans aren't built for water and it will always be an illusive mystery just out of reach.

Goodnight Mothman

This is the full round table discussion on the Mothman! Andy, Joe, Karin, and Darren welcome guest host Mark Swinerton to the show and they breakdown one of the most famous unknown creatures. This episode starts with the Mothman Minisode dropped earlier in July. You can start right with the conversation at around 9:30 in the episode.

One of the great monster stories starts in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. It has been identified as angel, owl, and an ultraterrestrial  being.

What do you think? Strange or Goodnight?

Goodnight Minisode - Mothman

With this episode, the Strange Goodnight moves on to a new Volume of episodes. The past few months have brought a lot of change for the podcast. I'm still working on issues with podcast syndication, and along with that is an episode plan that means each month will bring two episode drops. The first will be a minisode that is centered around the discussion topic that will make up the full episode that will drop at the end of a month.

This will give the one listener a chance to send some questions, comments, or ideas between episodes, and also give hosts a chance to be acquainted with the subject matter of the show that they may not always be familiar with.

You will find that there will be more written content, more shared content from other sites, and some other new things that will be rolled out in the next few months.

This is all still just a hobby, so be patient. We'll all get there together!

Have a wonderful day and a Strange Goodnight.

-Andy

Goodnight Blue Book

The UFO world deepens with a discussion on the various investigations the United States Government has embarked over the past 70-ish years.

UFO's are probably at the top of my list of unknown things. There are continual twists and turns in the field that make it very fascinating. There are the basic sightings of strange lights, green flashes, saucer sightings, up to the contactee movement, alien abduction phenomena, and of course the government conspiracies.

UFO's are probably at the top of my list of unknown things. There are continual twists and turns in the field that make it very fascinating. There are the basic sightings of strange lights, green flashes, saucer sightings, up to the contactee movement, alien abduction phenomena, and, of course, the government conspiracies.

The fact that there are numerous investigations should be enough proof that UFO's absolutely exist. It doesn't mean there are extraterrestrials visiting earth. It doesn't mean that there are secret moon bases or space forces, but it does mean that there is something out there. Among the Chinese lanterns, and misidentified space stations, planes, air force black programs, and drones is something that the Government has continually decided it doesn't know enough about that gets them back on the UFO train time and time again.

Goodnight Krampus & UFO Curses!

Welcome to Season Three of the Strange Goodnight!

On this Episode Joe and I talk about Krampus, the documentary Curse of the Man Who Sees UFO's, and establish a rating system for the Strange Goodnight.

December disappeared quickly and I didn't expect G'night News to be the last episode of the year. Joe and I recorded this episode in early December, but I wasn't able to get everything finished before the new year. To keep an established timeline, I decided to just have this episode be the start of the new season.

Goodnight News

In this episode, we talk about conspiracies and fake news.  The lens we use is more from the point of the view from the skeptic as we look back at some of the history of fake news and we unpack some ideas from Kurt Anderson's Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire: A 500-Year History.

Goodnight Hue

In this episode, we hear some great stories from Joe's coworker, Hue. We get a couple good bigfoot sightings, some fun ghost stories, and a pretty crazy UFO sighting.

These are some of our favorite stories we've covered on the show, they really embody that there are crazy things that are being experienced by normal people.

Goodnight Reality

Is reality a point of perspective? Could it be possible that what we believe is real is actually not real at all. This is a question that echoes around my brain even more as I sit here watching an episode of "Black Mirror," a series that I just recently started watching.

After finishing the the first season, I continually question where our reality is going. I always wonder how technology is effecting everything, and the Twilight Zone-esque nature of the series sometimes is more unnerving than reassuring. If anything it continues to highlight how much human beings need to feel in control of their own lives.

Goodnight Sheeple

My dad is a self-described "Conspiracy Nut." He has never really shared which conspiracies he truly believed in, other than he was pretty certain that there are "powers that be" that are out to control the world.

I am unsure of the point of a conspiracy theory. Yes, they are meant to illustrate that we aren't privy to the real story and there are strings being pulled that we can't possibly see. There are people that are so power-hungry that they need to control everything.

... but are we ever really in control of our lives?

In the United States, we love to think we are the architects of our own destinies. That isn't true though, is it? Our choices are always dependent on other people choices, and there are almost certainly choices others make that affect us without our desire.
