In this week's Weird Tales Radio Show we talk to American witch and pagan Carolyn Duffey, we have some May the Fourth Be With You Star Wars Trivia, we head to the Brecon Beacons in Wales to learn of a lost portal to Fairyland, our Fabulous Creature Feature looks at Leprechauns, and in our latest Doctors Who Murder we meet the Tapioca Killer.
Here are the show links:
Meet at a tech show eight years ago interviewing futurist Ray Kurzweil. At this point he's explaining how in the future I'll be able to 3D print a clone of myself and send that along to conduct the interview, while the real me stays at home to watch myself live-streaming on Facebook. Probably.
In this week’s Weird Tales Radio Show our guest is American writer, historian, antiquarian & mystic Robert W. Sullivan talking about Freemasonry, its symbolism, impact on popular cinema & whether the United States is a Masonic democracy? On a lighter note we also have good news for anyone cornered by a Tyrannosaurus Rex!

Here's my latest Fabulous Creature feature in Ancient Origins magazine: the Leprechaun – whatever you do, never accept shoes from the little fella!
In this week’s Weird Tales Radio Show, parapsychologist and magician Vince Wilson discusses seances, ghost hunting tech and why ouija boards really aren’t that bad. We also catch up on cryptozoology news, remember the 'astral battle' between Aleister Crowley and Irish poet W.B. Yeats, and look at ‘yarn bombing’ – a new fad or more lockdown madness?

Good news: new research estimates that T. Rex (the dinosaur not the old Marc Bolan band) only ambled along at less than 3 miles an hour – so we can out-run them. Of course this will make future Jurassic Park movies a little tame.
“Oh no! The T. Rex has escaped, what shall we do?”
“Walk briskly away," says Jeff Goldblum.
The End. Roll Credits.
Here to inform and entertain you with tales of folklore, urban myths, obscure historical incidents, geek culture and the weird. "Fun and high strangeness" is how one reader described it. May contain sarcasm.
Curated by Reuters correspondent and barrister turned writer, podcaster, editor, award-winning tech journalist and sometime werewolf hunter Charles Christian. The site also has links to Charles Christian's books and latest reviews plus his Weird Tales Radio Show.
Charles was born a 'chime child' with a caul – according to legend a caul-shrouded chime-child can't drown at sea but can see and talk to ghosts and fairy folk without fear of coming to harm – superpowers he's so far never needed to employ.
