This week, we’re beginning our long-awaited series that on one of the most incredible time periods in American history. Many fans of Forteana are familiar with the Mothman, but precious few are aware of how truly mind blowing the flood of Fortean phenomena that surrounded those events in Point Pleasant, West Virginia were. This, our opening salvo on the Mothman mythology, attempts to lay that groundwork. Setting the scene for the Mothman’s arrival with a bewildering series of UFO sightings and alien encounters. So, strap in and prepare yourself.
THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING!
Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only. The content and discussion in this show will necessarily engage with various accounts that include violence, anxiety, fear, and occasional body horror. Much of it will be emotionally and intellectually challenging to engage with. We will flag especially graphic or intense content so as to never put you in an uninformed or unprepared position.
