Ep 231: John Dee part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

Dee-viously Dee-lightful history!

Flora is back with the beginning of a mega episode all about John Dee! Conjurer, magus, sorcerer, astrologer - these are but a few things the 16th century polymath John Dee was called. History knows him as a smart man who chose an occult path. He cast horoscopes. Talked with angels. Practiced alchemy. Continually searched for the secrets of the universe through math and natural science. But history often paints with a harsh light. What was this enigmatic genius really like? Was he the sorcerer and mysterious advisor to Elizabeth I that he's portrayed as? Or has he been maligned, misunderstood, and misrepresented? David has hit the books to get to the real man behind the myth. In the first of 2 parts, the first half of this interesting man's life is covered. He also hits some very fascinating history, with such figures as Gerardus Mercator, Francis Drake, and more. Part 2 will cover the second half of Dee's life, including his occult practices and scrying with Edward Kelley. Grab your cross staff and rent a room for calculing, you'll be traipsing through some fun history on this episode of Blurry Photos!

Season 8 kicks off with the fine tradition of Irish folklore, as Flora takes you through some Irish vampires and other Celtic monsters! They might not be the first thing that comes to mind for the emerald isle, but Irish vampires and other Celtic monsters have a worthy pedigree in the folklore there. As the new season kicks off, David toasts to your health and celebration for a fun edition of "Slurry Photos." While Fae Folk usually take center stage, the evil Abhartach, Dearg Due, and Leannan Sidhe play supporting roles. They aren't the only dark things to beware, however, and David rolls through several fascinating entities such as Bocanagh, Fear Gorta, the Sluagh, and the Coiste Bodhar. Pour a tall, cold Guinness and sit back for a story-filled ride through Ireland's dark night on this episode of Blurry Photos!

Ep 233: Creepy Cults

Podcast cover

WARNING: This episode has extremely explicit content. Listener discretion is strongly advised.

Blurry Photober kicks off with an incredibly eerie episode about Creepy Cults. Three Creepy Cults are examined, including Aum Shinrikyo, the Ant Hill Kids, and the Marcus Wesson Family. Flora sifts through this heavy topic and tries to suss out the info from the hyperbole. Cults exist in a grey area of accepted but not really trusted. These three examples prove just why cults are often regarded suspiciously. Aum Shinrikyo launched one of the worst terrorist attacks against the public in Japan's history. The Ant Hill Kids was headed up by someone who proved to be one of the most notorious men in Canada's history. And Marcus Wesson presided over one of the worst tragedies in Fresno, California's history. David breaks down the timelines for each cult, giving a background, description of activities, and ultimate fate for them. This episode is not for the faint of heart. Serious and tragic issues such as rape, incest, murder, torture, and child molestation is discussed. Please be forewarned.

Scry so serious?

The saga of John Dee continues in a massive second part of the episode. The second half of John Dee's life was even wilder than his first, scrying with Edward Kelley and writing down the angelic language. Flora continues an incredibly deep dive into the polymath's life, detailing his actions with Kelley, travels abroad, and his death. It's perhaps the most publicized part of his life. Countless esoteric and mystical pursuits have been inspired by the work he did in this period. David rounds out the misunderstood mathematician's life and discusses thoughts on his and Kelley's work. He also speaks to some out there theories on Dee's pursuits. Special thanks goes to author and historian Benjamin Woolley for joining to speak about many aspects of Dee's life and works. Make sure to pick up a copy of The Queen's Conjurer: The Life and Magic of Dr. Dee, an amazing resource for this massive 2 parter!

You'd think this movie had everything...

With a title like "The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot," how could you not want to find out more about it? Flora is joined by Toby from Secret Transmission, Zenger from Zeng This!and Derek from Monsters Among Us for a discussion and review of the movie "The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot". Forty years after heroically killing Hitler in WWII, Calvin Barr (Sam Elliott) is close to letting his age catch up to him when the government requests his assistance once again. The Bigfoot is wreaking havoc in Canada with a new disease, and only Barr can stop it. David and the boys recap the highlights of this gutsy movie, including parts they liked and parts that didn't work so much for them. Lots of laughs and opinions are shared in this episode of Blurry Photos! (Note: this roundtable is scheduled to be released by each podcast involved)

Ep 227: Zoroastrianism with Dragons in Genesis Podcast

Podcast cover
Read more

We finally see who's behind the mask of Zoroastrianism!

It has been teased and talked about since the beginnings of the show, but finally Flora is tackling Zoroastrianism with the help of Jason from the Dragons in Genesis Podcast! An incredibly influential ancient religion, Zoroastrianism shows up often in show topics and is one of the oldest still practiced today. However, very little about it is known to western cultures simply because it's not often talked about or explained. The prevalence in topics such as ancient aliens, mythology, demonology, and others led David to want to learn more. So he invited a like-minded friend to explore the topic! Jason from Dragons in Genesis joins to discuss a thorough overview of this fascinating religion, from its beginnings to its tenants, and many of the spirits and figures in between. This episode is a massive examination of an incredible near-east religion, tag-teamed by 2 guys who may not be experts, but surely have passion for history. So light a fire, pet the dog, and settle in for a huge historical episode of Blurry Photos! (Note: please forgive me for Jason's audio changing a bit at the end; we lasted longer than our recording software did!)

While Fae Folk usually take center stage, the evil Abhartach, Dearg Due, and Leannan Sidhe play supporting roles.
