On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off talking about Cam’s plumbing troubles and what he has been attempting to do all of last week. Then they get into some news where a listener from Florida calls in to describe a strange Orb she and some friends saw while out camping. Then, a group of brothers, new to the Mobile, Alabama area, are skateboarding when they find a sewer tunnel. To their surprise, they see glowing eyes in the dark, which turns out to be a strange well-dressed ‘family.’

After the break, Cam brings up the interesting legend of the “Dark Watchers”. For centuries, tales of the Dark Watchers have swirled in the misty Santa Lucia Mountains. The Dark Watchers of California are a group of mysterious dark human-like creatures who stand on the hills, ridges, and peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountains. They supposedly watch those who wander into the mountains and are not aggressive. They are most often spotted around twilight and are usually seen staring upwards toward the sky while standing atop the mountains. They seem to be some sort of spirits however their origins are currently unknown. Most stories begin with the local native tribes, which allegedly spoke of the shadowy figures in their oral traditions. When the Spanish arrived in the 1700s, they began calling the apparitions Los Vigilantes Oscuros. And as Anglo-American settlers began staking claims in the region, they too felt the sensation of being watched from the hills. Accounts vary, although everyone agrees the beings are more shadowy than human and more observant than aggressive. Or are they?
