EPISODE #701 PORTALS AND THE MOTHMAN
Richard speaks with a researcher of high strangeness to explore the connections between some modern-day UFO experiences & various traditions of folklore, as well as patterns & parallels between different unexplained experiences separated by time & geography–like the things that cause vehicle stoppages–UFOs, phantom army’s & cryptids.
Guest: Steve Ward has been fascinated by the unexplained for over half a century. There were two major events that inspired his interest in the unexplained. Growing up in Michigan, the March 1966 UFO flap occurred virtually in his backyard. The following November a winged humanoid chased two couples down a lonely country road near Point Pleasant, West Virginia. The legend of the Mothman was born.
Steve would be chasing the Mothman the rest of his life. Influenced primarily by John Keel and Jacques Vallee, his views on UFOs became unconventional and moved toward a more paranormal explanation. Steve’s main area of research is, what some call “high strangeness” or “window areas” (as John Keel dubbed them) where disparate types of paranormal phenomena all seem to occur in the same location, and he believes that studying these paranormally active locations may be the key to understanding what the origin behind these manifestations may be. He has his own podcast on The Paranormal UK Radio Network called The High Strangeness Factor. He is also writing a book as yet untitled that deals with the underlying patterns that connect different types of Paranormal Phenomena throughout history.
