On this episode of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about how due to some bad weather, the Philson home has been without the internet for days! Then, a person tells a crazy story about a flying humanoid just like in the movie Jeepers Creepers! It took place around 3:00 am in Ohio. Next, a person writes in about a strange encounter they had with what they think was a skinwalker.

After the break, Kyle brings up some strange stories about the Bogeyman! Also spelled boogieman or boogie man, any of a variety of fictional and oftentimes folkloric monsters described in stories designed to frighten children. Tales of the bogeyman and various analogs have been used for centuries all across the world to influence children to behave as their parents command and to exercise caution in dangerous situations or areas. The term is also sometimes used more generally to describe any fearsome or dreaded thing.  This creature varies from person to person, as it has no definite appearance and is simply the embodiment of terror. Although usually depicted as a masculine entity, it can be female or genderless. While the description of the Bogeyman differs on a cultural level, there are often some shared similarities to the creatures. The Bogeyman is depicted as having claws, talons, and sharp teeth. Along with that, the Bogeyman is of the spirit variety, while the minority are demons, witches, and other legendary creatures. Some are even described to have certain animal features such as horns, hooves, and bug-like appearances.
