E30 | Black Eyed Kids, Elevator Creeps and Insidious Invitations
1 hr 25 min

The bone-chilling lore of the ‘black eyed kids’ (BEKs) has been knocking on the door of internet forums and popular culture over the past several years, so much so that the lines of its credible origins have been blurred with that of fictional ‘creepy pasta’ stories. But what are the allegedly true encounters, and how does this demonically prepubescent phenomena relate to historic, cultural folklore around the world? Well, turn the volume up and the porch light on, because tonight we recount the harrowing nocturnal tales of eye witnesses and discuss the potential reality of yet another type of nefarious traveler requiring invitation and seeking the the darkest of outcomes.. Don’t let them in!

Also.. grocery store weirdos, Fright Night seduction, and Pauly Shore validates Chris

The Amber Room
On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys start the show off talking about what they have been up to lately. Then, Kyle talks about a recent sighting of a large bioluminescent flying Bat Man seen in Guyana, South America. Then, Cam tells a horrific story of a man abducted and then killed by a Sasquatch back in the 1970s. After the break Cam tells the strange story about the lost Amber Room! During WWII, Hitler’s Nazis stole some 600,000 pieces of art from across Europe. By the end of the war, billions of pounds worth of artwork had been scattered to the four winds, the Nazi looting had been on an industrial scale. Whilst some pieces of stolen art have been returned to their rightful owners, many are still missing, including a priceless collection of stunning amber panels, known as the Amber Room - perhaps the most valuable items ever looted by the fascist regime. The room was called the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’ and one of Russia’s most treasured artifacts. After its looting, the room was returned to Germany and put on display, but it disappeared in the closing months of the war. Its fate is one of the greatest mysteries of WWII. All of this and more on this installment of Expanded Perspectives!

Bigfoot/Dogman Encounters
Paula's Experience Part 2 - A 3 Fingered Being, Implanted & My Gran and I saw a Flying Saucer
The next event Paula remembers is coming too in a place she did not recognise, but she felt no fear. She was lying on a cold metal gurney, she is dopey and drowsy and not sure of her location, she can see down to her feet and her chin is pressed to her chest, she can feel something pressing into her back and her lower back feels wet. Paula feels somthing being slipped under her skin in her lower back. Paula is completely paralysed and can not even move her eyes, but using every bit of strength she has, she forces her hand behind herself. She can feel something sticky, there is no pain, but this feels so wrong, a hand removes her hand and places it gently back onto her chest. The hand has 3 long fingers, weathered and brown, the nails are well kept but they are slate grey in colour. There is another digit, smaller than the others, the thumb maybe? or what would pass as a thumb to a human? The hand was cold and so was whatever had slipped under her skin, she felt it down near her coccyx.

149: Dark Russia: Rasputin's Reign
Rasputin’s life has remained shrouded in mysteries since his legendary assassination in 1916... His rise to power one of the most strange accounts in modern history. But was he really 'the Devil' as some have said? Was he possessed by some kind of strange otherworldly force, one that helped him ascend to places no other Siberian-born peasant ever dared venture, building up a mythical reputation that continues to thrive to this day...  SPECIAL THANK YOU to our Brand New Producer, Stanley of South Africa!!!
