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.

David explores the origins of this popular mythology, including tales from antiquity, global versions, and the beginning of their evolution to what we know and love today. Joining the fun is folklorist, cultural anthropologist, and editor of The Skeptic magazine, Deborah Hyde. Deborah is kind enough to share her insight into werewolf history and lore. The subject is wild and wooly, and just one part won't cut it. Enjoy this, the first of 2 parts all about the wildest, most transformative monster you ever need poop bags for!

The boys are back at the roundtable, this time taking a look at the 2019 film The Curse of La Llorona! A familiar bit of folklore to Blurry Photos, Flora and the guys see how well The Curse of La Llorona stacks up against the legends. The weeping woman might have a reason to cry after this portrayal. The film is a relatively lucrative addition to the Conjuring Universe franchise. Though it had some good success at the box office, does it live up to the hype? Derek from Monsters Among Us and Zenger from Zeng This! pull no punches in their assessment. And Flora loses his damn mind about one particular stunt. Watch and listen to see if you agree, or listen and decide to watch or not!
