S2 E59: Santa Clause - Unraveling The Myth & Mysteries of St. Nicholas with Special Guest JOSHUA CUTCHIN

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
We're so excited for you to listen to this episode, which is technically our Season Two finale, and we wanted to make extra special.

So, we invited one of our favorite authors that you've heard us fanboy over countless times in countless episodes... the one, the only - JOSHUA CUTCHIN to come hang out with us for a couple of hours and explore the strange mythology and mysteries that surround St. Nicholas.
Even if you think you're partially familiar with the lore that surrounds Jolly ole St. Nick...we can promise you that the amount of topics that we discuss, and their incredible interconnections will be the Christmas treat you've been hoping for. 

Here are just some of the things we discuss in this episode:
The Mysteries and Myths of St. Nicholas, The "wild man" archetype, Frau Perchta, The Wild Hunt, Odin, Belsnickel, Knect Ruprecht, Sam the Sandown Clown, The Harlequin, altered states of consciousness, the doppelgänger phenomenon, men in black, tulpas, Krampus, obscure cryptids, obscure video games, and so much more.

You've heard us bring up Joshua Cutchin and Timothy Renner's book: Where the Footprints End: High Strangeness and the Bigfoot Phenomenon, but In this episode we also go over his newest release: Ecology of Souls: A New Mythology of Death & the Paranormal - Vols. One & Two.

We can't thank you enough for supporting us throughout this 2nd season of our show. We hope no matter where you are in the world that you're able to spend time with those you love and care about.

From all of us to you - Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Special thanks to Joshua Cutchin for the amazing conversation, the first of many more to come.

Much love - and as always,

BE RAD
