Strange Origins

Summary: Have you ever wondered what gave birth to the stories we tell around the campfire? What happened in our history that caused spooky tales of creatures such as werewolves and ladies in white to be passed down from generation to generation? And more importantly, why are we still so fascinated with the macabre? Join me as I jump down the rabbit hole of a new subject each week and attempt to stitch together the history of all things strange and spooky. Visit FascinatingPodcasts.com for more info.

 Episode 41 | Birthdays and New Years | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1137

Join me as I travel the globe (via the internet) and discover some of the many ways we as humans celebrate the new beginnings of a birthday and a New Year. Just don’t forget to grab some chipped plates and exactly twelve grapes. *If you want to check out my vintage shop head on over to RPVintageShop.com Do you have a strange story to tell?

 Episode 40 | Corpse Roads | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 1310

Note of Warning: This topic includes dark themes and may not be appropriate for those under the age of thirteen. Corpse Roads weren’t just passageways that the English peasantry took in order to transport their dead to consecrated ground. They also serve as a reminder that Halloween superstitions were an everyday occurrence in medieval times. Be careful where you walk this spooky season, as lost spirits might just be walking alongside you. For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 Episode 39 | Unicorns | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1204

A Note Of Warning: The topic I discuss this week may not be suitable for listeners under the age of 13 due to light mentions of sexuality. Unicorns are nothing if not mythical. Starting out as a strange and fabled creature thought by some to live in India, Unicorns blossomed out of nothing. Going through transformations in different cultures, and eventually becoming an awe-inspiring symbol in Christianity, Unicorns are more than just a Lisa Frank staple in every tween girl's bedroom.  For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 Episode 38 | Lunar Superstitions | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 1270

The Moon is a fickle mistress. Is she evil or is she the personification of a loving woman? Will she turn you into a murderous lunatic, or will she restore your fertility and protect you from harm? Join me as I join the rabbit on the moon in discovering all the different lunar superstitions lore has to offer. For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 American Mythos | Ep. 8 | Vermont | Northfield Pigman | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 738

A Note Of Warning: The topic I discuss this week may not be suitable for listeners under the age of 13.  The Northfield Pigman is just one of those classic myths that send a shiver down your spine. This week Phoebe travels to Vermont to research the origin of an urban legend that has terrified generations and kept visitors from the infamous "Devil's Washbowl." For only $2 a month you can gain access to the rest of the American Mythos episodes.

 Episode 37 | The Bermuda Triangle | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 1498

The Bermuda Triangle is an area of Earth shrouded in mystery. Join me as I dive into the deep waters and learn about the history of where exactly the Triangle garnered its name and how it’s had a reputation as a dangerous spot for longer than you might think. Oh yeah, and I talk about aliens, ghost ships, and wormholes a little bit. Don't forget a life jacket! For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 Episode 36 | Haunted Media | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1460

A Note Of Warning: The topic I discuss this week may not be suitable for listeners under the age of 13. Did you know real human skeletons were cheaper than fake ones in the 1980s? Or that theaters began handing out barf bags to viewers of the Exorcist? Join me as I dive down the rabbit hole of haunted media. I mostly talk about haunted film sets, but I also scratch the surface of subliminal messaging, ARGs, and even Satanic Panic *I butcher the word Giardiasis in this episode. *Check out The Last Movie by Pacific Northwest Stories - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-last-movie/id1360493241 For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 Episode 35 | Witches Part II | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1156

A Note Of Warning: The topic I discuss this week may not be suitable for listeners under the age of 13 due to themes of sexuality. From black cats to magic cauldrons the strangest part of this episode is actually the fact that naughty monks may have caused the sensational witch hunts that killed millions. Oh yeah, and I also dive into the history of the male witch, the warlock. Join me as I throw a few names at you may not have heard of in the history of witchcraft, and explain the lore behind those that everyone seems all too well acquainted with.  For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 Episode 34 | Death Personified | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1598

A Note Of Warning: The topic I discuss this week may not be suitable for listeners under the age of 13. Do you know who holds the keys to the underworld in Greek Mythology? Do you know which Loa from Haitian Voodoo keeps zombies from rising from the grave? Do you know how many people have died from war just in the last century? This week I dive into all of the different characters that reap our souls and transport them to the afterlife, and whether or not they are really the bad guys we vilify them as.  *Also, go check out my Instagram page at StrangeOriginsPodcast for more examples of art depicting personifications of Death.  *If you don’t already know, I wanted to let you guys know that I have another podcast up and running.

 Episode 33 | Synchronicity | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1222

So what exactly do coincidences have to do with the wholeness of the universe? From Unus Mundus to Ouroborus, to the Philosophers Stone, everything is connected in some way, it just might not be the way you initially assumed.   For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 Episode 32 | Strange Showers | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1486

A Note Of Warning: The topic I discuss this week may not be suitable for listeners under the age of 13.  This week I delve into the strange things that have fallen from the sky. Whether it’s organic, like the blood rains that have showered down on funeral parties, or the unexplainable blobs of jelly that supposedly come from falling stars, it’s all pretty equally weird. Beware before you listen: this episode will have you looking up at the sky wondering just what will rain down on you next.  For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 Episode 31 | Zombies | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1424

A Note Of Warning: The topic I discuss this week may not be suitable for listeners under the age of 13.  For the first episode of season three of Strange Origins, I deep dive into the history behind Zombies. From werewolf/vampire/ghoul hybrids to the shores of Haiti, the idea of what zombies are has taken on a thousand different forms. That was, until the golden age of monster movies and Hollywood horror, where zombies became something more than flesh-eating, slow-walking creatures from the grave.  This week also features a trailer for the podcast Keep It Weird. Be sure to check them out if you crave even more spooky stories in your earbuds! Follow them @ Keepitweirdcast on Instagram.  For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 Episode 30 | Soul Theft | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1190

*A note of warning: the topic I discuss this week may not be suitable for listeners under the age of 13.  Souls are a tricky subject. If they do exist, where are they, what are they, and can they be stolen? According to mythology, the answer is yes. From Frog-Men to burning heads stuck in a flying wheel, to the origin of the myth that cats have nine lives, this Strange Origin is especially strange. (Sidenote: I mispronounce Cat Sith in this episode. It’s actually pronounced Ket Shee. Celtic languages are difficult.)  For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.

 Episode 29 | Mediumship | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1243

The world of psychics is a doozy. This week I dive into the strange lives of Mediums, (or rather people who refer to themselves as Mediums.) From the Egyptians to murdered hobos in Spiritualist hotbeds, to mud baths prescribed by a man under hypnosis, psychic activity can get pretty weird.  For more info on me and my podcasts please visit FascinatingPodcasts.com.
