A listener writes “I was running my airboat on the upper St. Johns River, Florida doing what I like to do best frog jigging on a Friday night. It wasnt the first time I was out on the river at night,I use to run the north and south parts of the river all the time.I still do but I rarely go at night and if I do it’s with 5 or 6 other boats..Anyway I was coming up on the oak’s.The oaks are located right next to Duda’s property.Just a wee south of Lake Winder. I figured I would pull up into the oakhead and drink a few cups of joe before I started to gig.Out of the corner of my eye I saw something bolt into the cabbage palms.I figured it to be a hog,I really did not know what it was the last thing on my mind was it could of been the big guy.Anyway I ran up on dry ground about 15 yards spun my boat around so it was pointed toward the river and shut it down.I just poured a cup of joe when I heard something about 10 yard behind me. It sounded like it was wrestling with a cabbage palm or maybe rolling around in a bunch of palms.that’s when I heard something hitting the ground and making a God awful noise then out of know where I heard a thump right next to my boat. I looked but did not see anything then again I heard it behind my boat then something hit my rudders I turned on my head lamp and saw mud on my rudders I then saw a bunch of mud fly over me and hit my bow I shined my light in the direction of where it was coming from and I saw his face and a good portion of his body he was pissed all I could think was my holy father please deliver me from evil.I lost all feeling in my body I just about passed out I was lost I didnt know what to do. I was in total shock I figured I was about to be ripped apart by this giant he was huge, I looked at him for 15 to 25 seconds it seemed longer I paired him with the front of my boat and this thing was huge. He definitely was a he, it had Male junk he had brown hair not very long and a leathery face. I just about peed my pants I was so scared. I never in my natural born life moved so fast to crank my boat and got the heck out of there I was amazed my boat cranked as fast as it did I was waiting to get pulled off my seat and got the tar beat out of me I was amazed my boat started, I gunned it I really dont even remember starting it .I almost sank my boat when I hit the river. I just went north knowing I would be in the lake.I was scared to drive home so I parked in the middle of Lake Winder and took a few sips of drink to calm my nerves and try to talk my self out of what I saw, I stayed there until first light. I was afraid to try and head back down the narrow part of the river in fear the big guy could snatch me off the boat and kill me, sitting in my front seat of my boat I sit 9 feet above the ground I was just about eye level with him during my confrontation. I have never been back to that spot again I was asked by a researcher if I could bring them there which I said I would but only during the day and I would be armed. It really ruined my life I use to love going out on the river and loved going camping and couldn’t wait to do it with my sons when they got old enough but you wont catch me out there at night, the sounds it made and the size it was is forever etched in my memory forever just writing this is got me crying from emotion.” Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

Half a mile below the surface of the earth, in a cave too hot to explore without an ice-packed suit, NASA scientist and Nat Geo explorer Penny Boston clambers around glassy crystals that are taller than telephone poles and wider than dinner tables. But it's not The Crystal Cave's grandeur she's interested in -- it's what may be hibernating inside the crystals. Astrobiologists like Penny Boston scour the Earth's most hostile environments for microorganisms, to see if they hold clues to what life might look like on other planets - maybe even planets in our solar system. For more information on this episode, visit nationalgeographic.com/overheard Want More? Hear Penny Boston speak on stage about her search for extremophiles all over the world.

Pharmaceutical breakthroughs such as antibiotics and vaccines rank among some of the greatest advancements in human history. Yet exorbitant prices for life-saving drugs, safety recalls affecting tens of millions of Americans, and soaring rates of addiction and overdose on prescription opioids have caused many to lose faith in drug companies. Now, Americans are demanding a national reckoning with a monolithic industry. Pharma introduces brilliant scientists, incorruptible government regulators, and brave whistleblowers facing off against company executives often blinded by greed. A business that profits from treating ills can create far deadlier problems than it cures. Addictive products are part of the industry’s DNA, from the days when corner drugstores sold morphine, heroin, and cocaine, to the past two decades of dangerously overprescribed opioids. Pharma also uncovers the real story of the Sacklers, the family that became one of America’s wealthiest from the success of OxyContin, their blockbuster narcotic painkiller at the center of the opioid crisis. Pharma reveals how and why American drug companies have put earnings ahead of patients. Shermer and Posner also discuss: how Big Pharma companies conspire to hack the FDA regulations, parsing responsibility for the Opioid crisis between manufacturers, distributors, doctors, and patients, the physiology of addiction and dependency, how Arthur Sackler went from liberal do-gooder to greedy capitalist, the polio vaccine and patenting the sun, how valium and anti-depressants were marketed to men and women differently, how the AIDS cocktail was developed, how Viagra® was discovered, why patents and intellectual property rights do not lead to more innovation, the prospects for a COVID-19 vaccine, the current state of the opioid crisis and how to stem it. Gerald Posner is an award-winning journalist who has written twelve books, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK and multiple national bestsellers. His 2015 book, God’s Bankers, a two-hundred-year history of the finances of the Vatican, was an acclaimed New York Timesbestseller. Posner has written for many national magazines and papers, including The New York Times, The New Yorker, Newsweek, and Time, and he has been a regular contributor to NBC, the History Channel, CNN, CBS, MSNBC, and FOX News. He lives in Miami Beach with his wife, author Trisha Posner. Listen to the Science Salon Podcast via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play Music, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn.

The desolate Alaskan tundra - a landscape that has literally been frozen solid for thousands of years - is suddenly caving in on itself. Colonizing beavers are engineering new wetlands that thaw the soil, rapidly releasing greenhouse methane into the atmosphere. Beavers can survive in the arctic because - like people - they change the environment to make homes for themselves, and their carbon footprint can be seen from space. For more information on this episode, visit nationalgeographic.com/overheard Want More? Permafrost covers an area more than twice the size of the United States. Read about why it's thawing faster than we expected. There are drunken trees in forests across Alaska, Canada and northern Eurasia. Check out pictures of some drunken forests. Ben Goldfarb believes that beavers aren't only not to blame for climate change, they're actually helping fight against it.

Max Brooks is an American actor and author. He is the son of comedy legend Mel Brooks and actress Anne Bancroft. Much of Brooks’s writing focuses on zombie stories. He is known as the godfather of the cultural phenomenon of the zombie genre. His first book, The Zombie Survival Guide (2003), published by Three Rivers Press, describes in depth the origin and lives of zombies. The book was followed up by The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks (2009), a graphic novel depicting several of the events detailed in the first book’s latter section. In 2006, Brooks followed with World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, which deals with the war between the human race and zombies. Paramount Pictures acquired the movie rights, and Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B Entertainment, produced the film. The #1 bestselling author of World War Z returns with a horror tale that blurs the lines between human and beast, and asks, What are we capable of when we’re cut off from society? Max has a new book out called Devolution: A Firsthand Account of the Rainier Sasquatch Massacre

Right now, one million animal and plant species are threatened with extinction. Conservation scientists are doing whatever they can to save them, or at least of piece of them. For the last 45 years, a team of researchers at the San Diego Zoo has been freezing the cells of endangered animals. With these time capsules of DNA, researchers continue to study endangered animals, and hope to maybe even bring some back from the brink of extinction.

She was with Sudan when he died and she believes that the survival of creatures like the northern white rhino is intertwined with our own. Move over, Noah. Joel Sartore is building his own ark - out of photographs. He's on a decades-long mission to take portraits of more than 15,000 endangered species before it's too late. Stuart Pimm has a lot more to say about species revival. In this editorial he makes a case against de-extinction - and explains why bringing back extinct creatures could do more harm than good. It's been a long time since Jurassic Park hit theaters. Today, our revival technology straddles the line between science fact and science fiction - but do we want to go there?

Social Media is not just for modern folk. In ancient Pompeii, people also shared what they thought, who they met with, what they ate... It's just, they had to use different technology. For more information on this episode, visit nationalgeographic.com/overheard Want more? Pompeii is not just an archaeological site, it's one huge graveyard. But it was very much a living city right up until it was snuffed out by Mt. Vesuvius. When you think of an avalanche, you probably think of snow. But volcanoes also cause avalanches. Archaeologists believe that it was an avalanche of rocketing, boiling gas and sediment that cooked Pompeiians alive in 79 A.D. In the late 1800s, archaeologists started pouring plaster into voids left in the hardened volcanic ash covering Pompeii. The result? Full-sized casts of Vesuvius' victims -- human and otherwise. Do you live in the shadow of a volcano? Here are a few safety tips for when that telltale rumbling begins. Could Chernobyl be our contemporary version of Pompeii? Some archaeologists think so.

In episode 246, “The Wax Man,” we speak with Jeff who has been tormented by a dark entity in his childhood home since he was a child living there. This home is very old and in the 1800s was used as the town funeral home because it had the most space for people mourning their loses. He recalls seeing over 50 pictures of dead people from that time period in his home. Some of his experiences he was alone for but not all of them and he was able to confirm with his childhood friends about these experiences he remembers. Jeff thought he might have had an overactive imagination until they confirmed with him as well. That is when he decided to come on the show and share what he has seen in this home as a child and as an adult once he moved back to the family home with his own family.

Racism, police and the pandemic are dominating hearts and headlines, but will they translate to votes in national and regional elections?

Young, liberal Americans are leading the charge on climate, but Bernie Sanders learned they are more likely to protest than vote. What issues are top of mind for Obama-Trump voters in swing states?

Spoke to the witness and had a brief conversation, he said "while driving in York, Pennsylvania I saw this huge creature. It was bent down next to a creek. I stopped to look at it and other drivers pulled over. The creature stood up and had this look like it was upset it had been seen. It had something in its hand. The creature turned and looked at us. It reminded me of a man...a large...hairy man. It than slammed its fist to the ground and then collapsed to all fours and ran off so fast it was a blur. I have never seen anything move that fast. I was close to this thing. There is so much more to tell." The witness has agreed to come on the show. The witness said he has searched online fore something to compare to what he saw that day.

I also have a strange story about the balls of lights that my grandma told me about on the property we’re I had 2 of the encounters.” Spoke to the witness and he said “I was hunting and the neighbor had a huge dog.I thought this large dog had its back to me in the treeline and I was mad because he was going to ruin my hunt. I looked away scanning for deer and when I looked back at what I thought was the dog I was shocked. It was now standing on two legs staring at me. I was in shock and could not wrap my head around what I was looking at.” We are also going to speak to David and his son who had an encounter in Utah. David's son ran ahead of him on the trail and saw a creature on the trail. His son screamed and David thought he was hurt as he caught up to his son he heard something very large tearing through the woods.

But before Ryan’s interview, we dive into a recent UFO case that is being called "the modern Roswell." In May 2020, the entire town of Mage, Brazil experienced a strange UFO sighting that involved the military and a possible altercation in the sky. The case spans UFOs, military battles, and extraterrestrials, some of which were speculated to survive the aerial altercation, their location now unknown.

Episode 60 of the Paranormal Mysteries Podcast:In our last episode we began a strange and bewildering journey into the world of Fae Folk. We explored the history of the mysterious little people of Detroit known as the Nain Rouge and we shared some eye witness accounts involving bizarre rituals with small humanoids, flying fairies, an evil gnome-like creature and a pair of shadow steeling wee folk.On today’s show, we’ll be taking a look at more eye witness encounters regarding creatures that fall under the heading of The Fae. We’ll also be talking about the strange phenomena and circumstances that surround some of these encounters and why many believe that these phenomena might be responsible for the disappearance of hundreds of people around the world.Podcast Source: https://www.spreaker.com/show/paranormal-mysteries-podcastSources used in today’s episode:Anomalies (anomalyinfo.com) / Cryptozoology News (cryptozoologynews.com) / Missing 411 Books by David Paulides (canammissing.com) / Mysterious Universe (mysteriousuniverse.org) / UK Wildman / Your Ghost Stories (yourghoststories.com)Email: paranormalmysteriespodcast@gmail.comWebsite: http://paranormalmysteriespodcast.comBecome A Patron: https://www.patreon.com/paranormalmysteriesSocial Media Links:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/paranormalmysteriespodcastInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/paranormalmysteriespodcastTwitter: https://twitter.com/ParaMysteryPodYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/paranormalmysteriespodcast

In 2016, we produced an episode about the ginkgo tree titled "Ginkgo Stink." With its fan-shaped leaves and golden fall foliage, the Ginkgo biloba is a beautiful tree with an incredible history dating back millions of years. It’s also a popular street tree among urban foresters, despite the fact that some ginkgoes produce malodorous cones. The episode was meant to be a celebration of the incredible ginkgo. But the episode contained an offensive phrase and failed to consider a nonwhite perspective of this amazing species. In this episode, we’re correcting our mistake, and adding some context about what exactly we got so wrong. First, Felix Poon shares his personal relationship with the ginkgo tree and explores the history of food-related racism in the United States. Then, a new version of the original story, edited to sound the way it should have when we first produced it four years ago. Explicit Language warning: this episode contains repeated use of a swear word used in the original episode many times. It also contains an ethnic slur, spoken in the context of a conversation about racism. For those reasons, this episode may not be suitable for young kids.

Tonight, my special guest is Diane Marger Moore who is the first ever prosecutor to obtain a conviction for murder without a body in the state of Indiana.Where is Brandon Sims? The four-year-old had not been seen since July 3, 1992, when he attended a birthday party with his twenty-year-old mother, Michelle Jones. Jones was employed, confident, talented, smart, assertive and involved in many community activities in Indianapolis, Indiana. In contrast, when he was last seen, Brandon Sims, an only child, was a serious, quiet, thin boy who rarely maintained eye contact with his mother. After that night, he was never seen again. His body has never been found. For years Jones lied to her friends about Brandon, telling some that he was living with his father and others that he was staying with his grandmother in another state. When Brandon’s father, who had been in jail, came looking for Brandon, Michelle’s shocked friends confronted her. She confessed that Brandon was dead. She repeated her story of how Brandon died to a detective, after she admitted herself to the local psych unit. Days later she checked out of the unit and refused to reveal where he had hidden Brandon’s body. She was sure she had gotten away with murder.And she would have except the detective didn’t believe her story. He enlisted the help of a novice prosecutor because no experienced prosecutor would take the case. In Indiana, no one had ever been convicted of murder without a body. That prosecutor has written a book that reads like a mystery novel instead of the real murder prosecution. Truth is stranger than fiction where Santeria curses, the law and politics are only a few of obstacles to justice. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

What has the Roman Empire ever done for us? Fall and go away. That is the striking conclusion of historian Walter Scheidel as he recounts the gripping story of how the end of the Roman Empire was the beginning of the modern world. The fall of the Roman Empire has long been considered one of the greatest disasters in history but Scheidel argues that Rome’s dramatic collapse was actually the best thing that ever happened, clearing the path for Europe’s economic rise and the creation of the modern age. Shermer and Scheidel range across the entire premodern world and up to the present, discussing: Why did the Roman Empire appear? Why did nothing like it ever return to Europe? Why did Europeans come to dominate the world? the rich diversity of Europe that encouraged political, economic, scientific, and technological breakthroughs why other parts of the world lagged behind how empires are built and why they fail America as an empire. income inequality and the only forces that change it significantly the future of human civilization. Dr. Walter Scheidel is an Austrian historian who teaches ancient history at Stanford University. His main research interests are ancient social and economic history, pre-modern historical demography, and comparative and transdisciplinary approaches to world history. He is the author of The Great Leveler: Violence and the History of Inequality from the Stone Age to the Twenty-First Century, On Human Bondage: After Slavery and Social Death, The Science of Roman History: Biology, Climate and the Future of the Past, The Cambridge Companion to the Roman Economy, The Oxford Handbook of Roman Studies, and Rome, China: Comparative Perspectives on Ancient World Empires, and more.

Cannabis - few plants have captured the attention of our species as these have. Both celebrated and demonized, our sociopolitical views on Cannabis have greatly hindered our understanding of this genus. From its origins to its chemical ecology, there are just so many questions begging for answers. Joining us to talk about all of these ideas and more is Sunny Murphy. Sunny is both an ecologist and a science communicator. She owns and operates her own science communication organization called Black Flower Science Co. with the explicit goal to "facilitate the building of relationships between scientists and laypersons with the underlying goal of removing the social stigmas attached to cannabis use."

"Utopian" describes a society that's conceived to be perfect. Dystopian is the exact opposite. It describes a society that is as dehumanizing and as unpleasant as possible. In today's show, “The Dystopian Society,” I let loose on some of my concerns that have me wondering if we are on the path to dystopia right now. Earlier last week I had heard that some people in our society have been pleading to the United Nations to intervene in current events and recommend police reformation. Though at first, I scoffed at the notion, I then did a more intimate look at the idea. Why would the U.N. get involved? Do they have any rights to insert themselves into our matters? What would the world look like if the U.N. did have the ability to invade a nation and what would that look like for said nation and the rest of the world? These are questions I pondered and as I started digging I found some information that made me sit back in shock when I realized that we very well might be in the middle of a global transition into a one-world government, a new world order, a new normal or as the World Economic Forum likes to call it, “The Great Reset.” Today we explore this topic through monologues, skits, rants, and candid conversations with Chad Catron from North Country Off Grid YouTube channel who shares with us some tips on how to stay afloat while our society is on the path to dystopia. Oh, and side note, Chad has bigfoot on his property and we talk about that also.

00:00:00 - This episode Ben and Ryan are joined by Ph.D. student and podcaster Kathryn Cogert (@KathrynIsabel), who specializes in mimicking the microbial nitrogen cycling as seen in Oxygen Minimum Zones of the ocean with the aim of improving wastewater treatment. We begin with the basics of why nitrogen pollution is an issue and how nitrogen is currently removed in wastewater treatment and why it’s sort of a hot mess. 00:21:42 - Nothing like talking about wastewater to build up a thirst. Ben, self-described sleepy fella, sneaks in an ad for cherry-wild cherry tea from Canada’s own teadesire.com. Kathryn feels judged but still enjoys her hometown’s own Olympia Beer. Ryan enjoys some cold-brew made from Perky Perky birthday coffee beans sent by his sister. 00:34:11 - In part two of our chat with Kathryn, she walks us through all the improvements she’s helping to make to the nitrogen removal process using their weird critters called Annamox and Ammonium Oxidizing Archaea. Saving money, saving energy, cleaning up water. Win-win-win. 00:56:16 - PaleoPOWs are a bit like Archeae, we don’t know where they came from but they sure are odd. Ryan begins by thanking Joshua C. for promoting us on the Wild Green Memes Facebook Group. Kathryn reads aloud an e-mail from real deal nuclear engineer Gerrit B. about our discussion of water as radioactive shielding in spaceships in episode 319. And patron Will Q. has earned his BSso degree by completing a thesis titled:: Canid we find some new methanogens? Novel discovery of a methane-producing archaea in the GI tract of a Canis lupus familiaris: barking up the right tree. Thanks, Will! And of course, we have to mention that Kathryn is the co-host of the wonderful podcast Encyclopedia Brunch featuring our own Tim Dobbs.

Episode 59 of the Paranormal Mysteries Podcast:In episode seven, we took a brief look at a creature known as the Pukwudgie, loosely translated as "little wild man of the woods that vanishes". Popular in Wampanoag folklore, Pukwudgie are believed to have the ability to appear and disappear at will, use magic, launch poison arrows, create fire and even lure people to their deaths. But these little people of the forest are not the only mysterious creatures that are said to inhabit the unknown parts of our world. On today’s show, we’re going to dig a little deeper and begin an exploration of some of the history and odd encounters regarding these and many other creatures that are the focal point of fairy tales. Creatures that are known as The Fae.Podcast Source: https://www.spreaker.com/show/paranormal-mysteries-podcastSources used in today’s episode:“The Fairies” by William Allingham / gods-and-monsters.com / learnreligions.com / mysteriousuniverse.org / The Fairy Faith (documentary)Email: paranormalmysteriespodcast@gmail.comWebsite: http://paranormalmysteriespodcast.comBecome A Patron: https://www.patreon.com/paranormalmysteriesSocial Media Links:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/paranormalmysteriespodcastInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/paranormalmysteriespodcastTwitter: https://twitter.com/ParaMysteryPodYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/paranormalmysteriespodcast

Tonight I will be speaking to three eyewitnesses my first guest Carl writes "Hello my name is Carl and I'm 51 years old married and have a son . I have taken black bear and moose from Canada and hunted all my life and spent a lot time in the woods and hunted birds and all kinds of small game. At 10 to 12 years old I was hunting on my own by myself and was taught to respect the land and animals that were on it. I knew what was in the woods and the sounds that it makes but what I saw that summer night changed the way I looked at nature and what resides in it. My story is from when I was around 12 or 13 years old living in the country in Ohio. The area I lived in was around 20 min from the Ohio river and interstate 70 but far enough out that it was rural farm and woodlands , very steep and hilly land at the foothills of the Appalachian mountains and just outside of a town called Martinsferry Ohio to give you an idea of the lay of the land . Not all that far from Salt Fork state park. Also known as the Ohio Valley or Tri State area bc you could be in Pennsylvania or West Virginia in a short drive . We owned 50 acres that had been in the family for years and was just really beautiful and great deer hunting. We had been in town to visit my grandparents on a Friday evening and was almost home driving down our lane to our house at around 10 pm. My sister and I were riding in the back of the car, a 66 Buick no air conditioning with windows down bc it was a hot summer night. As we rounded the bend that the driveway that lead up to the garage door to our house the lights of the car shown across the yard and pond that was at the edge of the wood line and I saw a dark object that was walking at the edge of the woods on a path that my father keep cut going into the woods that he used to drive up into the woods to cut firewood.The opening to the woods was about 10 to 15 ft across. The creature I will call it was around 8 to 9 foot tall and was black from what I could see from the headlights. The creature had no eye shine but could see that it was black and almost absorbed the light as it hit it. It was huge and very broad .The car came to a stop and being stupid and wanting to know what it was I jumped out of the car and ran about 20 feet from the car to see if I could get a better look at what I just saw. The car was parked on the driveway and to the edge of the woods was about 25 yards or less. As soon as the car shut off I could hear yelping and crying that I instantly knew was puppies crying. My sister heard it and came running next to me and in a panic was asking me if that was our puppies that a dog we had just gave birth to a few weeks prior. The creature was still standing just inside the woods and I pointed it out to my sister and she saw it too. We yelled back to our parents and said something got the puppies! I don't know why to this day but if I knew then what I know now I would have never done what I'm going to tell you now. Not realizing the danger that we where in. Myself and my sister ran towards the crying sounds and in our minds going to save the puppies, the sounds were not where I Saw the big creature standing. The sounds of crying were off to the left and in the woods. Well we only took about 3 to 5 steps and my father yelled at us to get our butts back there fearing it was coyote I think . When he yelled to us the creature standing in the path opening began to move off in the direction of the puppies crying and myself and my sister saw it moving and it moved so fast and disappeared instantly into the brush and woods , it only took 2 steps and it was across the opening. Then it sounded like a train was going through the woods with tree branches cracking and heavy footsteps. We could still hear our puppies crying and the noise stopped and the uneasy feeling was gone and dead silence accept for the crying. Not no birds no frogs from the pond , no crickets, nothing and that is very odd for that property bc if it was night time you could always hear the frogs in the pond in the summer. We asked our parents if they saw the figure standing and if they saw it run back into the woods they said no. He said that we were imagining something there and it was a trick of the car lights and shadows. My father got a flash light and myself and my sister and my father walked across the way and on the path in the woods and followed the sounds of the crying puppies and they were strung out and scattered in about a 20 to 30 yard area almost in a line. All 7 puppies were scared to death and shaking uncontrollably and peeing on themselves. Besides being scared they were not injured. The next day me and my sister walked into the woods and could see something or somethings tore through the woods about 50yards into a clearing that was cut by the power company bc we had high power wires and towers that cut through our property. There was no foot prints or impressions bc the ground was hard and dry from a hot summer and little rain that summer.The tree limbs were broken and some snapped off completely at a height of 7 ft high and you could see a clear path that had been tore through the brush and woods leading to the clearing. In the clearing it was no an open field , it was brier bushes and thickets and you could not just wall through it but there was tore pathways that been made. We could not follow the tracks through the clearing bc of the thorns on the brier bushes so that stopped there. You could tell it was more than one creature that made its way through our woods that night . These things had come up to our porch and took these pups out of a large cardboard box that we made for them that was tall enough that they could not get out but the mother could step in and out of. The mother dog was missing that night and we didn't see her for a couple days and when we did find her she was hiding under a deck on the back of the house and was very scared and didn't want to come out . Very odd of her bc she was always friendly and not shy. I think these creatures were going to eat the puppies and we just happened to come along when they were in the act of stealing them. I can't to this day figure out why these things dropped the puppies and ran , especially for their size. My sister and I asked our parents what they thought it was that took the pups and they said that the mother lead the puppies there and then left them in the woods. I was never really scared after that day to be in the woods but was always on high alert at night in the woods . As I grew older and hunted the land and surrounding land in the areas I sometimes felt like I was being watched at times and came across what is known now as nest and tree breaks and structures but really never put 2 and 2 together until later in life when I saw Bigfoot programs and things on the internet investigating the subject. That's my story and never told anyone about it in fear of being called crazy and ridiculed. I tried to talk to my father years ago about what happened that night and what I saw and he laughed it off and said I must have imagined it being I was a kid with a big imagination. Thank you for a place or outlet to tell my story and really love your show and hearing other people and their encounters. Thank you for your time. Scott writes "My encounter took place in the fall of 1983 or 1984. Me and a friend were coming back from getting Pizza around 6:30 at night as you know in the fall the sun goes down early so it was quite dark along this stretch of road. This road was 2 lanes with a 3-foot berm that was 2 or 3 feet lower than the fields beside the road. we were coming around a corner and we saw a dark mass standing on the side of the road. When we got closer we could see it was brown and very tall, my friend had a Subaru that had a sunroof in it and when we drove by it looked down at us it's head was over the road and I look through the sunroof and its head was right there. I couldn't make out any facial features but the eye shine was red. We just looked at each other and said did you just see that we both agreed we did and agreed not to say anything about it. Because people would think we were crazy. I did go back to the location the next morning and looked around but I didn't see any tracks just some mashed down grass. Judging from the distance from the road it had to be a least 9 and a half to 10 feet tall. That was the first and last time I saw anything." We wrap up with Jason and he comes to us from Upstate NY. He will be sharing his encounters with us including a strange object in the sky.

It’s true that Maria Konnikova had never actually played poker before and didn’t even know the rules when she approached Erik Seidel, Poker Hall of Fame inductee and winner of tens of millions of dollars in earnings, and convinced him to be her mentor. But she knew her man: a famously thoughtful and broad-minded player, he was intrigued by her pitch that she wasn’t interested in making money so much as learning about life. She had faced a stretch of personal bad luck, and her reflections on the role of chance had led her to a giant of game theory, who pointed her to poker as the ultimate master class in learning to distinguish between what can be controlled and what can’t. And she certainly brought something to the table, including a PhD in psychology and an acclaimed and growing body of work on human behavior and how to hack it. So Seidel was in, and soon she was down the rabbit hole with him, into the wild, fiercely competitive, overwhelmingly masculine world of high-stakes Texas Hold’em, their initial end point the following year’s World Series of Poker. But then something extraordinary happened. Under Seidel’s guidance, Konnikova did have many epiphanies about life that derived from her new pursuit, including how to better read, not just her opponents but far more importantly herself; how to identify what tilted her into an emotional state that got in the way of good decisions; and how to get to a place where she could accept luck for what it was, and what it wasn’t. But she also began to win. And win. In a little over a year, she began making earnest money from tournaments, ultimately totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars. She won a major title, got a sponsor, and got used to being on television, and to headlines like “How one writer’s book deal turned her into a professional poker player.” In this wide-ranging conversation Konnikova and Shermer discuss: the balance of luck, skill, intelligence and emotions in how lives turn out the real meaning of the marshmallow test time discounting and how to improve yours rapid cognition and intuition how to improve your use of emotions in gambling and in life what it was like being a woman in an almost exclusively male game, and the nature of human nature in the context of the BLM movement and protests. Maria Konnikova is the author of Mastermind and The Confidence Game. She is a regular contributing writer for The New Yorker, and has written for The Atlantic, The New York Times, Slate, The New Republic, The Paris Review, The Wall Street Journal, Salon, The Boston Globe, Scientific American, Wired, and Smithsonian, among many other publications. Her writing has won numerous awards, including the 2019 Excellence in Science Journalism Award from the Society of Personality and Social Psychology. While researching The Biggest Bluff, Maria became an international poker champion and the winner of over $300,000 in tournament earnings. Maria also hosts the podcast The Grift from Panoply Media and is currently a visiting fellow at NYU’s School of Journalism. Her podcasting work earned her a National Magazine Award nomination in 2019. Maria graduated from Harvard University and received her PhD in Psychology from Columbia University.
