Episode 8: Men in Black

In this episode we talk about Men in Black, which is a generic term to refer to any strange and/or possibly threatening individuals whose presence seems to be linked to areas of high cryptid activity, UFO sightings, etc.

Not a real MIB photo but lol can you imagine?

Yes, stories of Men in Black did indeed inspire the franchise of Men in Black comic books, films, and other media.

We talk about several supposed encounters with Men in Black, like UFOlogist Albert K. Bender, who was communicated with telepathically, and a couple in New Jersey who appeared to have their phone lines tapped by a Man in Black who was evidently caught on film.

The man, if you can call him that, in question.

This topic is too deep to summarize in a few paragraphs — you just have to listen to these bizarre stories yourself!

Episode 1: Mothman

In this very first episode of Unknowable we dove in with one of our very favorite cryptids: THE MOTHMAN.

We primarily focused on the years 1966 and 1967 when the Mothman was terrorizing Point Pleasant, West Virginia, but we also went a bit into other sightings around the world and throughout history, including Chernobyl (where it was referred to as the “Blackbird of Chernobyl”) and even an alleged sighting (and photograph!) during the World Trade Center terrorist attack on 9/11.

An alleged photo of the “flying alien” captured during the 9/11 terrorist attack.

We also touched a bit on the unusual government agents and “men in black” that were seen around Point Pleasant during, and following, the Mothman sightings, as well as bizarre premonitions and dreams that some residents had that seemed to predict the collapse of the Silver Bridge, which resulted in the deaths of 46 people.

We had fun speculating on whether the Mothman is indeed a bizarre mutation of an existing animal due to faulty storage of TNT, a man wearing a jetpack and night vision goggles (nope, stop, don’t even suggest that to us), or perhaps just a sad, misunderstood cryptid who is trying his best to warn us of impending doom. Tune in to hear about a topic that we are super passionate about — maybe you’re hearing about the Mothman for the first time, or maybe you’re also a fan, but either way we hope you learn something new!
