Twigonometry
On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about how much they love the Indiana Jones series, but they think that it would have been better if they hadn't waited so long to film the later versions.  Then, a Danville, California boy and his friends were digging in a local bog when the witness struck a huge toad. After that incident, the boy suffers a bizarre ordeal that will haunt him forever. Next, a retired logger and forest firefighter describes different encounters with the Forest People near his home in Yacolt, Washington. Following the break, Cam introduces a series of unsettling sightings involving enigmatic entities referred to as Black Stickmen. Humans rarely observe these peculiar humanoid beings and bear an uncanny resemblance to conventional cartoon stick figures, rendering them among the most peculiar entities ever encountered. Black Stickmen are typically characterized as tall, slender, and entirely black, existing solely in two dimensions. Witnesses report witnessing them engage in peculiar galloping movements, with some accounts suggesting they can even hover above the ground. Due to their two-dimensional nature, these entities maintain a consistent appearance from any perspective. The mystery deepens as questions arise about the identity and purpose of these elusive figures, leaving many wondering why people are encountering them in the first place.

Mysterious Coincidences
On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about the beautiful spring-like weather in the North Texas area and their upcoming trip to the Colorado mountains. Then, two cousins in the summer of 1999 were traveling towards Joplin, Missouri when they had a strange encounter with an ominous tall creature with wings crossing the road. Next, a Wyoming Elk hunter encounters a distressed hunter who tells him about a remarkable experience that he has just had with a Reptilian being in the nearby mountains. After the break, Cam brings up some strange coincidences. When the threads of coincidence weave through our lives, a fascinating dichotomy emerges among individuals — those quick to dismiss such happenings as mere randomness, and those attuned to discerning meaning or a grander design at play. Beyond the surface of encounters with doppelgängers or sharing birthdays with best friends lies a deeper truth: the universe consistently conspires to infuse our everyday existence with serendipitous moments. In the realm of coincidences, the 1989 paper "Methods for Studying Coincidences" by math professors Persi Diaconis and Frederick Mosteller defines a "surprising concurrence of events, perceived as meaningfully related, with no apparent causal connection." While apt, this definition falls short in capturing the essence of those extraordinary coincidences that intricately connect people and places, prompting contemplation of something beyond the ordinary. Join us as we explore seven remarkable coincidences — some etched in history, others mind-bending astonishing — that lead even the most rational minds to question the improbable alignment of events. The world brims with inexplicable occurrences and mysterious twists, challenging our understanding of life's unpredictable journey. From uncanny predictions to eerie parallels among seemingly unrelated events, these extraordinary stories beckon us to contemplate the enigmatic patterns that govern our universe. In this episode of Expanded Perspectives, we embark on a journey into the realm of mysterious coincidences, exploring tales that range from the man who survived two atomic bombs and the multitude of Eleanor Rigbys to Mark Twain's meteoric birthday and the synchronized deaths of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Brace yourself for a captivating exploration of the strange and intriguing as we delve into the mysteries that surround us. All of this and more on this installment of Expanded Perspectives!

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about some very strange sightings of UAPs. Then, they get into some wild sightings of some reported Not Deer men, a jort-wearing dogman, and a human slug. After the break, the boys get into some more strange and remarkable sightings of Fae Folk. Fairies have become iconic figures in films and television. Still, beyond fantasy, numerous purported sightings of these mystical beings have been reported throughout the ages in Britain, Ireland, North America, and more. While much of the lore surrounding the collective term 'fairies' is steeped in legend and myth, many accounts persist from individuals who claim direct encounters with fairies and their enchanting activities, spanning both ancient and modern eras. Remarkably, some reports come from individuals of reputable social standing, asserting that they have witnessed or engaged with creatures unmistakably resembling fairies. Whether one chooses to embrace these accounts or not, they serve as illustrative examples of the diverse perceptions people held about fairies at different points in history. Accounts of fairy experiences, predominantly from the twentieth century, originate from a wide spectrum of individuals, including business professionals, housewives, journalists, clergymen, bus drivers, anglers, gypsies, schoolteachers, university professors, soldiers, artists, authors, poets, musicians, sculptors, actresses, and many others.

Next, a person in Lancashire, UK is stared down by a tall clawed crawler. Then, a hunter in Washington believes he was tracked by a Bigfoot or perhaps even 2 Bigfeet while out Elk hunting.

Lost Treasures of the Third Reich
On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about how Christmas is coming and how Cam's daughter has finished her degree at Texas A&M University. Then, a central Texas witness watches a feral hog shapeshift into a Sasquatch. Next, a person has a possible Glimmer Man sighting in their home. Was it a Glimmer Man or something else like a ghost? After the break, Kyle brings up some long lost treasure in Europe from after World War II. In March 1945, the Nazis set off from the city of Goerlitz with a convoy of artwork from a museum and treasures from Russia’s Amber Room. Legend has it that as the war drew to a close, a local miner saw a group of German soldiers move the train, filled with valuables, through the Owl Mountains, near the town of Walbrzych. Since dubbed the “Nazi gold train,” the locomotive has never been located and has become a topic of interest for both historians and treasure hunters. For some, it’s become an obsession, with many attempts being made to find it over the years. Some have warned the train likely doesn’t contain any gold or treasures. Instead, they posit that it was loaded with chemical agents the Nazis were transporting to Berlin in a final attempt to stop the Soviet Red Army. Dangerous nerve agents, such as Tabun, are theorized to be among the chemicals onboard. No one really knows! All of this and more on this installment of Expanded Perspectives!

Magical Montana
On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about the cowboy life and the terrible luck Kyle has been having with automobiles this week. Then, in 2008 a witness driving north on Highway 680 between Fremont and Pleasanton, California, saw something large flying about their car. It looked like a juvenile Pterosaur! Next, a Hamilton County, New York driver hit a supposed Bigfoot that was carrying a deer along Route 8 in July 2014. The incident was never reported to the local Police. After the break, Cam brings up some wild stories from the great state of Montana. Montana is a vast, beautiful state with sweeping landscapes, mountains, and monsters! According to Native American lore, the state’s waters have long been home to strange, sometimes deadly creatures. Flathead Lake reportedly hides a monstrous something that has been sighted for decades, and strange things are said to soar through the big sky.

On this special edition of the Expanded Perspectives, the guys do a cross-over with friends and fellow podcasters Jeremy, Jon, and Chris from the Belief Hole Podcast! But first, a car service driver has a bizarre encounter near Sheepshead Bay, New York when he and his passenger see a 1957 Chevy Bel Air being driven by a black-eyed couple dressed in 50s-style clothing. Then, a big game hunter and guide in Washington still feel uneasy after their personal Bigfoot encounter while hunting near Mount St. Helens about 25 years ago. After the break, Kyle and Cam join forces with guys from the Belief Hole Podcast to discuss some wild listener stories. Jeremy, Jon, and Chris are three brothers who have spent a weird amount of time looking into unusual topics since the days of elementary school, (which is now quite a long time ago). These three kindred souls gather together to discuss, debate, and sometimes snicker over the fantastic and mysterious goings-on that exist at the fringes of our reality. We discuss Duendes, Glimmer Man, Sasquatch, Alien Abduction, and more. So join us in our descent into the Belief Hole!

The Romanian Giant
On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off talking about how Thanksgiving went for both of them and how they celebrated Luke's recent birthday at Cidercade! Then, a pregnant woman in annoyed by the constant knocking at her door. When she opens the door, a black-eyed woman in her 50's demands to be let in and to use the phone! Next, a group of friends are sitting in a car and talking when they notice an odd-looking deer with one antler and weird forward-set eyes. Was this a "Not Deer"? After the break, Cam and Kyle get into the very interesting tale of a large giant found in Romania in 1976 that was a towering 32.8 feet tall. About 5,500 years ago, an underground gallery was constructed in the region by the Agathyrsi. In February 2012, a group of geologists followed the gold vein in the same place. They kept digging until they ended up at the base of the gallery. To their utter surprise, they found a gravestone that was not made of common rock. The geologists took a sample, and the laboratory results revealed that the components of the tombstone included 55% 50-karat gold dust, 15% granite dust, and 30% wolfram. Also, the analysis revealed that the composite rock had been made using a type of technology unknown today. All of this and more on this installment of Expanded Perspectives!

Cursed Movies and Movie Sets
On this installment of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off talking about the super creepy fog that is enveloping Skelekin Studios at the time of the recording and why the fog is so spooky. Then, a Montana woman describes Sasquatch encounters with friends on the Crow Nation Reservation, her experience with an invisible being, and Irish Fae Folk legends that she heard while growing up. Next, a witness and his family were driving near Stillwater, Oklahoma when he observed a large unknown white bipedal creature in a grassy area along the highway.  After the break, Cam brings up some cursed movies and movie sets! The film industry has consistently delved into narratives revolving around curses, whether it's the ominous videotape triggering death after seven days in "The Ring" or the thematic exploration of grief in "Smile." Curses have become a pervasive motif in cinematic storytelling, arguably instilling a deeper sense of fear than the stereotypical hockey-masked killer; once marked by a curse, escape seems futile, regardless of one's actions. Beyond the curses depicted on the screen lies a captivating realm—cursed productions that unfold behind the scenes. A subset of films is often deemed to have endured a cursed production, marked by on-set accidents, eerie coincidences, or the unfortunate deaths of cast and crew in subsequent months and years. While these cursed productions typically find a home in the horror genre, they can manifest across diverse cinematic landscapes. Some of Hollywood's most iconic films are shrouded in rumors of "cursed" productions, their notoriety stemming from a blend of urban legends and well-documented misfortunes during filming. The curse associated with the making of these movies often garners as much attention as the films themselves. Tragedies involving injuries, fires, lightning, and even death contribute to the perception of a curse hanging over these productions. In any film production, chaos and misfortune are inherent elements, yet it is the most infamous instances of troubled productions that lead audiences to believe in the ominous notion that a movie is truly cursed.

The Rooftop Devil
On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off talking about the pig Kyle recently missed while bowhunting, Cam and Luke's upcoming birthday and some appearances they will be making on some other podcast. Then, a woman shares an account of a potential encounter with the elusive "Glimmer Man" on two separate occasions in New Mexico. What was this pixelated, invisible being doing? Next, a Greensburg, Indiana resident recalls a sighting of a bat-winged humanoid that was in a tree in his backyard. There was no sound and he never saw it fly away. After the break, Kyle brings up some strange sightings including a possible Jersey Devil encounter. The vast expanse of the New Jersey Pinelands is characterized by extensive pine forests and sandy trails, serving as the backdrop for the state's most notorious inhabitant – the Jersey Devil. Officially recognized as the country's sole state demon since 1938, the Jersey Devil is depicted as a peculiar creature with a kangaroo-like body, a horse's face, a dog's head, bat-like wings, horns, and a distinctive tail. Over the course of more than two and a half centuries, this enigmatic being is said to traverse the marshlands of Southern New Jersey, intermittently emerging to wreak havoc upon towns and cities.
