In Mission 138 we take the Mother Ship under the sea to explore mermaids with author, Varla Ventura! For centuries seafarers have whispered, talked, and sang songs to the legend of the mermaid. A half fish, half woman, she appears not just in Disney films alongside singing crabs, but in the folklore of America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. These creatures show up again and again in popular culture and fiction, but also lately on video clips and in photographs. Are they just myth, or is there something more to them? We discuss Ventura’s new book, Among Mermaids: Facts, Myths, and Enchantments from the Sirens of the Sea, and don’t miss a spinning Egyptian statue in the news!
In Mission 137 we explore how the main stream media covers the unexplained. Almost every week some news outlet will cover a paranormal story. Sometimes they do so with a scoff, other times video or photo evidence demands the public’s attention and the clips make it to prime time. Tonight the Oddballs are going to look at some headlines from around the globe and have an open discussion as to why some of these items make the news and how the topic is being covered. Could it be that disclosure is happening all around us all of the time and the media is playing its role? Tune in to find out!
In Mission 136 we explore Native American Star Mounds with author and researcher Ross Hamilton. Does the Serpent Mound in Adams County, Ohio, hold the key to Earthly harmony? Is there an extraterrestrial connection to these star mounds? We explore those questions and more and discuss Hamilton’s latest book Star Mounds: Legacy of a Native American Mystery. Don’t miss it!
