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 are the links:
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.
In this week's Weird Tales Radio Show our guest is psychologist Dr Brian Sharpless, who has been researching the connection between sleep disorders, such as sleep paralysis, and paranormal and folkloric phenomenon including werewolves, alien abductions, and shadow people. We also look at Prince Philip’s roles as a South Pacific god and the godfather of UK computer hacking law. And we also discover that the woman who unleashed 'This Smells Like My Vagina' candles on the world is rated over twice as awful as Genghis Khan who was responsible for the death of millions of people.
In this week's Weird Tales Radio Show our guest is Dr Joseph Gallenberger, a psychologist and psychokinesis expert who has spent 30 years exploring the ways PK can not only help healing but also improve your luck when it comes to playing the slots and dice in casinos. Liquid Luck he calls it. And we also have video news, Royal news – no not Harry and Meghan but the late Duke of Edinburgh's interest in UFOs (we recorded the show Tuesday).
In this week's Weird Tales Radio Show our guest is Geoff Marshall, a video producer and author based in London who over the last few years has built a huge following on YouTube for his travel and transport videos, not just about the London Tube but the whole UK railway network. Talking of which since 2017 he has visited all 2563 railway stations in England, Wales and Scotland. It’s a geek-fest this week but you’ll enjoy it as Geoff’s enthusiasm is infectious.

Here to inform and entertain you with tales of weirdness, folklore, urban myths, arcane history, geek culture and the occult. "Fun and high strangeness" is how one reader describes 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' books and the Weird Tales radio and video shows.
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 – allegedly!
