If you thought The Chupacabras was the only creature that had a problem with farm animals, think again. Join us as we talk about chopper chairs, llamas and a bad ass young lady with a baby on her back and a billy club in her hand.

By now, we’ve ALL heard about this mysterious monolith that just keeps popping up. As of the time of the recording, there still had not been any confirmation on who was behind it, so please keep that in mind while listening. We decided to take a deep dive and get into each structure that has popped up, offer speculation, and of course, we go off the deep end.
It’s all part of ETTBO’s plan.

See. Just in time for that drive to Grandma's house.
We all know about the mysterious fog that surrounds Ancient Egypt. Whether is be forbidden magics or ancient aliens, there are plenty weird rabbit holes we can go down.
This week we discuss some of the mysteries found at Abydos, as well as the case of a time machine or portal, allegedly housed inside the tomb of Hannah Courtoy, that is powered using ancient Egyptian magic.
Or, ya know, maybe it's barn owls

Music is a very special thing. It has the ability to take us back in time, feel special feels. Music can soothe an angry soul, or act as an outlet for rage and aggression. In short, music is magic.
This week we welcome our good friend Martin Adil-Smith back to the show to discuss the magic of music and his newest Skorum music project – Freyja’s Song.

In ancient times, three generations of Egyptian pharaohs wrote about an ancient group of people that are referred to simply as “Sea Peoples” that regularly plagued the Egyptians with raids and attacks. Some historians speculate that this mysterious group of sea raiders may have been responsible for the decline in the Egyptian civilization, as well the Bronze age collapse.
Who were these mysterious people? Were they a wandering band of pirates or mercenaries? Warmongering Atlanteans? Magical giants from a far off land? One thing we can say, with relative certainty, they were not Lovecraftian fish men.
This week, we run down the theories and discuss the mysterious SEA PEOPLES!

Hey everyone! This week we cover a documentary Mike stumbled upon that blew our minds. Krista Alexander’s Lights In The Sky may sound like a documentary about something we all find interesting: lights in the sky, but what if we were to tell you that she has found something in the lights. Something.....that possibly moves right past UFOS. Hold on to your Mocha Frappe Nipples because shit just got weirder than Aliens.

Greetings and salutations, one and all!
You may have heard about the documentary that is being dubbed as “one of the most important documentaries of the year”. Well, this week, we decided to discuss Phenomenon, the documentary that aims to open up the discussion of the reality of UFOs.
In sticking with that theme, we also review some recent UFO sightings videos and give our thoughts.
Spoiler alert: They are ALL barn owls.

What is up, everysinglebody?
We are living in crazy times, and we hope that everyone is able to retain some form of sanity and weather the shit storm. In order for us to stay a bit grounded, we decided to go back to the old days and talk about our past. We discussed how our interest in the paranormal started and some of our earliest experiences from our childhoods.
Was a young Mike probed by aliens? Did Mateo REALLY take a ghost to the prom? The answers, and more, remain unanswered, but we hope you listen anydamnway.

For centuries, vampires and werewolves have been sworn enemies, fighting a secret war beneath the night sky.
This week, while not exactly talking about a war between vampires and werewolves, we decided to discuss a case of a murderous man, that claimed to have turned into a wolf, and there is some evidence to back up his claim. We also discuss the case for vampires in Seattle and the possibility that black eyed kids may actually be vampires.
We went off track waaaay more than usual, and might've gotten a little more silly as a result. Bear with us, there's some good stuff in there somewhere.

You ever wonder why it is that it’s typically people that have strong religious fate that wind up the victims of demonic possession? Is it that the Devil, himself, is trying to punish the faithful? Maybe, it’s that these people have a form of schizophrenia or bi-polar disorder, and it’s their faith that creates provides the paint for their disturbed canvas.
This week we delve into a few, seemingly holy, people that displayed symptoms of demonic possession.

If you were to hear the term Devil’s Hole with no context, what would be your first thought? Would you rush to Urban Dictionary to find out what sort of ungodly sex act it was? Maybe you’d be flooded with visions of a taco night gone awry. Maybe you’d just think it’s another name for Hell.
Well friends, all of those instances, you’d be wrong. You see, the Devil’s hole is a name for cave near Niagara Falls, NY that holds an evil spirit that is known for cursing European explorers. While researching this particular Devil’s Hole, we found that there is another place in the Western United States that is potentially the home of a subterranean race of humanoids.
Fart jokes and mysterious abound, this week, on The What Cast.

It is with this in mind that we bring you the legend of the Lusca. Is it a squid? Is it an octoshark? Maybe people just need swimming lessons. Who knows?

We are back at it again, folks. We are here to discuss another curse! We know that everyone loves a good curse story, and when you can involve a tale of lost love and combine it with a vengeful murder ghost, it gets even better.
This week, we look into the Curse of Lake Ronkonkoma. What causes these drownings? Is it bad luck? Chance? The ghost of a sad native girl seeking her lost love? If it’s the ghost option, then what’s up with the weirdness described in old Native legends in the area that seem to predate the story of Princess Ronkonkoma?
No matter what the cause, The What Cast will be hosting a post-COVID beach party on the shore of Lake Ronkonkoma. Floatation devices will be optional!

Bigfoot doesn’t get enough love from us. It seems like he often takes a back seat to aliens, and barn owls, and cyborg former president turned tyrant time-lord. To try and make it up to the big guy, we decided to talk about the spooky case of the Lake that No Man Has Ever Fished.
We then turn our attention to evidence and get into the topic of the big feets themselves. Ya know…the prints.
The story we discuss in this episode was found on Bob Gymlan’s YouTube channel (LINKED HERE), why not go over there, give him a like and a subscribe, maybe tell him to come on the What Cast in his comment section. Yeah…that’s the ticket!

This South African UFO Crash story may not be a story at all and British UFO Investigator said he had the evidence to prove it; by way of false documents! Wait, what?
Just as a side note: We had a lovely, very rare, not often seen by us What Casters encounter with a skype bed shit/computer death combo.Exquisite, we know.

Basically, this episode is about the occasions when exorcisms and demonic possessions turn deadly. As if having a stupid demon sharing the space of your brain and trying to eat your soul was bad enough, now you have to worry about crazy, over-zealous religious fanatics starving you to death or chopping you and your family up into little pieces.
Let’s be real, death should never be the punishment in these cases. Sometimes a good dose of mental help would go a long way in clearing this up.
So…if you or someone you love is possessed by a demon thing, try not to kill them, k?

When you think of the term soothsayer you likely imagine a crusty old bearded guy warning Julius Ceasar to beware the Ides of March. Either that or you wonder to yourself what the Hell a Soothsayer is. Whether you want to call them a fortune teller, a seer, a psychic, these guys are known for foretelling future events. This week we take a look at the Grand Daddy of them all, Nostradamus. Nostradamus is known for predicting many future events using vague and poetic language. Some of these prophesies are hoaxes, spread around the internet, others could be misinterpretations. Maybe some are legit. Look, man. I don’t claim to know the answers to the future, that’s above my pay grade.
Anyway, this episode, Mateo goes over a bunch of poems that point to the future apocalypse and Mike tries to convince him that Nostradamus was just writing biblical fan fiction.
