A podcast that explores the unexplained and explains the unexplored, Blurry Photos seeks the facts behind the fiction of the world’s most fascinating, unbelievable, and chilling mysteries and legends.

Hollow Moon with Hysteria 51

Lunatic fringe... I know you're out there!

Can't get enough of that hollow stuff on earth? Why not blast off into new territory with Hollow Moon Theory? Flora welcomes Brent, John, and Joe from the Hysteria 51 podcast to discuss the hollow moon and all its empty goodness. After controlled crashes of spacecraft onto the moon's surface, NASA observed some odd seismic activity. Earth's companion satellite seemed to 'ring like a bell,' throwing a wrench in science's models at the time. This led to numerous theories, including the moon being a spaceship, an observation station, and even a hologram. Hysteria 51 discuss the theories and speculations on a fun, spirited, and far out episode of Blurry Photos!

Lemp Mansion part 2

A beerly-believable history of haunting.

What's a huge, historical house without its share of ghostly goings-on? The Lemp Mansion is fast becoming more infamous for its unseen tenants of today than for its storied history of yesteryear. Join David as he concludes his deep dive into the nooks and crannies of the Lemp Mansion saga. Part 2 focuses on the paranormal happenings and urban legends associated with the old home. What have people experienced throughout the years? How did it go from boarding house to restaurant and Inn - and haunted house? Flora took a recorder with him to spend the night and see if any past residents welcomed him or rejected him. Stories, EVPs, and an interview round out this epic chronicle in this episode of Blurry Photos! Thanks to Matt Bell and the mansion staff for the hospitality. Find out more about visiting HERE.

A haunting history, beerly believable...

Crack open a cold one and settle in for a detailed history of the Lemp Mansion! Home to one of the most successful and tragic families in St. Louis brewing history, Lemp Mansion stands as solemn reminder of both accomplishment and sorrow. In part 1 of this 2 part mega-sode, David delves deeply into the history of the Lemp family, including their humble beginnings and triumphs all the way through their anguished downfall. Few families can match the tragic Lemps. While money came easily, death might as well have been the dispenser of it. In the upcoming second part, Flora will relay the chilling accounts born of the untimely ends and secrets kept within the walls of the stately home.

Ep 213: Phantom Time
51:45

Phantom Time

This date in miss-tory...

Toss the old history books in the trash and Forget what you know about the Dark Ages, the years have vanished as phantom time! A historical conspiracy centering on the early Middle Ages, phantom time is the theory that 300 years of history never actually existed. The proponents of this theory list several compelling reasons why the centuries never happened. Not even the famous European icon Charlemagne is safe in this one. A pope and two emperors are said to be the culprits behind it, and a few German researchers and scholars have seemingly caught them red-handed. How can history as we know it be wrong? What would be involved in making 300 years disappear? And is such a thing even possible? Find out in this history-laced episode! Also stick around for the winner of the 2018 Miss Cryptid Contest and the drawing for the sweepstakes!

Ep 212: Mirrored Men with Monsters Among Us
01:09:47

Mirrored Men with Monsters Among Us

Creepiness in triplicate.

Flora welcomes back Derek Hayes from the Monsters Among Us podcast to discuss the high strangeness of Mirrored Men. A truly bizarre and recent phenomenon, Mirrored Men are strange men in odd locations who witnesses say move in synchronization and possibly cause missing time. Derek has fielded several calls of encounters with them, but is no closer to an explanation than anyone else. He and David talk about their origins, descriptions, and he even shares a couple of the calls he received. What are these odd entities? Can anything explain their appearances? David and Derek share ideas and get pretty out there in this one! Also, the winner of Week 3 of the 2018 Miss Cryptid Contest is announced, completing the list of finalists. Now it's up to you to head over to the Blurry Photos Homepage to cast your vote on who should win the 2018 Miss Cryptid Contest!

Ep 211: The Lead Masks of Vintem Hill
43:36

The Lead Masks of Vintem Hill

Mysterious deaths that led to few leads beyond some lead.

Questions, enigmas, and mystery are in high order when investigating the lead masks of Vintem Hill. When two men were found dead with weird masks on a Brazilian hill in 1966, everything from murder to UFOs was put forth to explain the lead masks of Vintem Hill. Flora takes you through the case from the discovery of the bodies to the reports connected to them over the years. What could have happened to Miguel Viana and Manuel da Cruz in the suburb of Niteroi, Brazil? Why did they have little lead masks with them? The mystery only deepened when reports came out of UFO activity around the time and place the men were supposedly at before their deaths. Get out your sleuthing stuff and brush up on your Portuguese, this is one hot cold case!

The Lost Dutchman Mine

What's mine is yours. Ore not.

Dust off the burro and grab some saddlebags, we're going gold hunting for the Lost Dutchman Mine! An old west legend of dangerous prospecting and fabulous wealth, the Lost Dutchman Mine has inspired gold hunters for decades and caused more casualties and heartaches than you can shake a pickaxe at. Join David as he takes you through the history of the legendary mine, including Native American lore, Spanish influence, and who the namesake of the mine, the Dutchman, was. Sift through the many tales of murder and deceit and see what shakes out. Could there be a gold mine in the Superstition Mountains that holds ore beyond belief? Flora asks some questions and sorts through the sinister stories to discuss the legend of the infamous mine and the hunt for it. Wear sunscreen and pack plenty of water, this one is coming at you hot!

Ep 209: Stigmata
36:56

Stigmata

Showing a marked curiosity.

Blurry Photos is in search of the truth behind stigmata in this episode of the podcast! A supposed phenomena where a person physically exhibits the wounds of Jesus Christ on the cross, stigmata is considered holy by some and hoaxes by others. Cases of it have been reported for centuries. Flora takes a passive observer's approach and looks at both sides of the debate. The Roman Catholic church has recognized it as a miracle, though not every case. Skeptics have found fraud in many cases. David looks at a few of the many cases and also how science has viewed it over the years, leaving you with some thoughts to consider as to its validity. Have some faith in this informative episode of Blurry Photos!

Ep 207: The Mad Gasser of Mattoon
43:56

Mad Gasser of Mattoon

Do you smell that?

Shut the windows and change your mask filters, the Mad Gasser of Mattoon is prowling the podcast! A WWII-era midwestern mystery, the Mad Gasser of Mattoon held a small town in a gaseous grip of fear for 2 weeks with no explanation and few suspects. Panic took hold as locals tried to figure out what was happening in their small Illinois community. To this day, no one knows exactly who perpetrated a series of alleged gas attacks, nor has anyone found out why. Join David as he relates not only the timeline of the 'phantom anesthetist,' but also similar attacks in different parts of the country throughout the years. Were they connected somehow or just coincidence? He also looks at what police and scientists have found, and whether or not anything has actually been explained over the years. Don't let the fumes get to you in this episode of Blurry Photos!

Ancient Nuclear War

Nuke kids on the block

Evidence faces some slim pickens as Flora fights in the war room of ancient nuclear war claims! A claim that prehistoric cultures wiped out life on the planet through ancient nuclear war has been floating around the internet and TV shows, but is it real or pseudo-history? David examines the evidence presented for the claim, including the written sources, physical indications, and cultural timelines. Did Mohenjo-Daro and other Indus Valley cities get wiped out by weapons? Was the fighting just contained to earth? What does the Mahabharata and Bible have to say about it? Join Flora for some really out-there claims and some hopefully level-headed discussion as he drops some truth bombs on this episode of Blurry Photos!

Lost Cosmonauts

A conspiracy that leaves theorists a little Red in the face.

Check your struts and chutes, Flora is blasting off straight into the heart of the lost cosmonaut conspiracy theory! A conspiracy involving soviet coverup of terrible atrocities, the lost cosmonaut theory deals with purported evidence of death after death in the race for space supremacy. Cries into the abyss, a faltering hearbeat, and airbrushed photos are just a few aspects of this theory. David delves deeply into the lore, examining audio files, photographs, and claims made by theorists. Just how bad was the loss of life? Was Yuri Gagarin really the first person in space? What can you even believe anymore? Sit back and let Flora take you on an audio odyssey to the 60s and beyond in this episode of Blurry Photos!

The time is nigh to learn about what your future may have in store as Flora tackles the tale of John Titor! An Internet legend 20 years in the making, the story of the time traveler John Titor is chock full of future claims, physics, and maybe something else. Who was the mysterious traveler that claimed to be from 2036, and why did he post on Internet forums in 2001? With a harrowing tale of a dark and dangerous future, his captivating claims and interesting mission through time have entranced and entertained people for years. Having no apparent motive other than to speak with the residents of his past, he remains one of the most enigmatic puzzles to come out of the early days of the Internet. While the claims were dubious, he did provide a hoard of knowledge about physics, history, and culture. Join David as he delves deeply into the story, claims, and investigations of a still-growing Internet icon. Just make sure to bring an extra canister of O2 for the ride!

BullStone 32: December 2017

Stecco's last hurrah

Dave returns for a final BullStone before riding off into the sunset. Space talk, UFOs, and a weird humanoid photo are the topics du jour for Stecco's last official Blurry Photos (and BullStone) appearance. With the winds of disclosure blowing stronger than ever, the recent news of government UFO research is discussed. The public reception, talk of new alloys, and what it all might mean for us are looked at. Meanwhile on earth, an Argentinian photographer captures a strange humanoid shape during a shoot. Could it be some kind of entity or just a trick of the lens? The Davids discuss these and detail out some thoughts as Stecco bids farewell on this episode of BullStone!

Ep 203: The Eilean Mor Lighthouse Mystery
41:23

Eilean Mor Lighthouse

An old school mystery with a new wave theory.

The fire is out, the clocks have stopped, and dread surrounds the empty interior of the Eilean Mor Lighthouse and a mystery that has persisted for over a hundred years. A desolate, weather-beaten island west of Scotland is the setting for the Eilean Mor Lighthouse mystery, where 3 men met their fate in 1900. Problem is, no one knows how. As if vanishing into the fog, three lightkeepers were never seen again, with no indication of what happened to them. Join David as he relays the eerie story of the events at the lighthouse and uncovers the facts and fictions of the disappearance. Were sinister forces at work? Could there be a scientific explanation? And why did it take so long to discover them missing? The horn is sounded in the murky depths of the fog of mystery in this macabre episode of Blurry Photos!

Ep 202: Trolls
01:41:48

Trolls

Trollin' with the homies.

David and Dave brave the Scandinavian nighttime to skinny dip in the mythology of trolls! A creature of Norse folklore, the troll has morphed throughout the ages from supernatural figures to ugly giants but endures as a staple of fantasy literature. They have been around in stories since the earliest sagas and remain respected not unlike Fae folk in Ireland. But don't let the modern interpretations of the giant, gross, dim-witted bully fool you - they weren't always like that. The boys delve into the history of them and what has influenced our modern notions. Tales are a big part of the folklore, and Flora and Stecco have a few to tell! Stick around for an important announcement in this one.

Colin Schneider, Cryptid Predation

Colin all cryptid lovers - you're gonna love this interview!

Flora welcomes the Crypto-kid, Colin Schneider, in a fun and fascinating interview! One of the youngest cryptid researchers out there today, Colin Schneider already has impressive credentials and joins to discuss cryptid attacks on livestock. He shares his copious amount of research and findings on strange reports of unknown beasts and the theories about them. What started as a focus on vampiric creature attacks quickly ballooned into all manner of interesting monster mayhem, enough for him to start a book on the subject. The stories are captivating, kooky, and cool, and fit the crazy cryptid category charmingly. You can find more of Colin's work at his blog and radio show.

Ep 200: The Sphinx part 2
01:50:42

The Sphinx

If we said we liked these origin theories we'd be lion.

The second half of the 200th episode is nigh and dives deep into the theories of how the Sphinx came to be. Flora and Stecco juggle some rather outlandish origin theories for how the Sphinx was built and who built it, including ties to Atlantis, aliens, and pre-history. They also examine the claim that the stars match with the placement of the monuments on the ground. Ideas from researchers and authors such as Graham Hancock, John Anthony West, Robert Schoch, Colin Reader, Paul Jordan and many more are studied and discussed. Could it be older than anyone dares to think? The geology of the area is also scrutinized, and the theories of water erosion and weathering are considered. Dating the monument is much harder than the limestone it's made of, it seems. Join the boys of Blurry Photos as they tackle the big questions and the big theories in this monumental conclusion to a monumental milestone!

Ep 200: The Sphinx part 1
01:04:22

The Sphinx

Riddled with history.

The double hildo is upon us, and the Davids celebrate with a massive 2-part episode on the Sphinx! Buried in equal parts sand and questions, the Sphinx is a huge ancient monument in Egypt with a history as obscure as a corn dog in a sandstorm. In part 1, the boys describe its current state and how it has fared over the millennia. A history - as best we can piece together - is discussed, including those who have dug it out of the dunes again and again. The myth of how it's nose was lost is examined, and the various artifacts, structures, and features found around it are looked at. The big questions are saved for part 2, as are the more fantastical claims. Aliens, Atlantis, Prophecy, Astrology, and much more are, much like Horus, on the horizon. But a solid grounding in real history and archaeology are first on the menu. Get out your camels and sunscreen, the 200th is stela good time, and we ain't lion! Cheers to helping us reach 200!

American Ghoulthic

Blurry Photober comes to a close with another edition of ghost stories! A vampire hermit, a phone that won't stop ringing, a burning church, and a waltzing corpse are just some of the ghost stories crawling out of this open grave. David and Dave recount tales of terror that are truly terrible along with the terror that has been their health lately. Can anything prepare you for such awful tales of awfulness? Probably not, so don't even try. And stick around for a special spooky story by a certain special standup comedian. Happy Photober!

Hell Holes

Hole-y Hell!

Say your prayers, hold your breath, and grab some aloe, Blurry Photos are diving into hell holes in this one! Said to be entrances to any number of unhappy afterlifes, hell holes are pits and caves in the earth where one is said to be able to reach hell itself. Flora and Stecco take a look at several mythologies of traveling to hell. They also run down a list of famous sites said to be hellish access points throughout the world. The Door to Hell, Stull, KS, and Castle Houska are just a few of the spots where hell can supposedly be reached. The boys also discuss the disturbing legend of the Siberian Well to Hell. Leave the coat at home, you're in for a hot time tonight! (A List of Holes, Forum Hell, Pics of the Door to Hell)

Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm

Wych explanation makes sense?

Blurry Photober continues with a modern maybe murder mystery that begs the question - who put Bella in the Wych Elm? A mysterious skeleton in a hollow tree kicked off an investigation in 1943, but the mystery deepened with the appearance of graffiti reading "who put Bella in the Wych Elm." Join David and Dave as they recount the discovery and investigation of what happened to this poor soul. The theories of what could have possibly occurred are numerous and include everything from occult dealings to Nazi connections. Were spies involved? What is the connection to a Hand of Glory? Listen to the facts as presented and see what you conclude in this fascinating and truly unsolved puzzler!

Human figures that are said to be possessed or cursed, haunted dolls have a built-in creepiness that transcends the many stories about them. Flora and Soloff discuss what might make dolls haunted, the history of paranormal doll belief, and some of the most famous cases over the years. How do they get so spookied-up? What makes them so naturally creepy? Didn't you put that doll in a chair and not on the bed? Join a live audience for a fun foray into fear for Photober!

September science stories!

September was full of science-y stuff, and this BullStone has some fun news stories from it! David and Dave fly solo to discuss the National Quiet Zone, UFOs in the UK, and bloodstream-powered generators in this BullStone. Some questions raised including whether or not electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a real condition, how much Monsanto affects scientific papers, and the what was up with the sighting of UFOs by a Yorkshire couple. Even Pliny the Elder gets his grubby little skull into the fray. The topics are only the jumping-off point, as interesting discussion follows in this thought-provoking and fascinating edition of Blurry Photos' monthly weird news show!
