Episode 132 - Canadian Creeps and Cryptids with Haunted History BC
Canada is well known for hokey, poutine and cold weather. Eh? Yes, I also know Canada for Corner Gas and some of the best punk rock in the world (Anti-Queens, duh!). What about the ghosts and cryptids of our friendly neighbors to the north? Not content with another episode about Waverly or Whaley House, in this one, I turn to Gina and Victoria of Haunted History BC, those Canadian Mavens of Morbid Mayhem, for answers. We’ll talk about the sisters’ history in the paranormal, how they conduct investigations, their mascot, Onyx The Crow and more. The “more” being several stories of Canadian haunted places and cryptids!!! Good stuff, eh? Last “eh?” joke, I promise. Those Pennsylvanian Purveyors of PUNK, Advocaat, generously grace us with the song “Ghost” in this one, too. BOOOO, eh!!! Sorrrry about that.

Plus they’re super fun to drink with and sit around with on a Saturday in the park. I think it was the 4th of July? Ooops. Wrong CHICAGO band.

We’ve covered paranormal investigating and ghosts, haunted places and haunted history, witchcraft, magic and tarot, cryptids, UFOs and now, we’re going to tie ALL of them together.

Episode 121 - Mike Wiebe Interview (Riverboat Gamblers, Drakulas)
Mike Wiebe of The Riverboat Gamblers and Drakulas. He’s the tall, good looking one that jumps around and sings in both bands, by the way. Mike sets sail on the WeirdBoat, the Bobcast, to talk about paranormal stuff, his bands and more in this episode. Strange car rides on Santa Fe Baldy in New Mexico, strange lights in the sky in Denton, Texas and a Goatman. And the Goatman’s Bridge. Creepy, spooky and awesomely atrotious stories, in other words. Plus, a retelling by yours truly of one of the many legends that surround Goatman’s Bridge in Denton, Texas. I personally would not visit Goatman’s Bridge. Too scary, especially after I read all about it. Yikes. Music of the episode provided by Drakulas and the Riverboat Gamblers with the songs “Dark Black” and “Don’t Bury Me (I’m Still Not Dead)” respectively.

Episode 120 - Paranormal Ponderings V - UFOs with Aaron Gulyas
UFOs fall under the (very large) umbrella that is “The Paranormal”. There, I said it. I guess it’s not really a controversial opinion, it’s just that many people don’t think of UFOs from a “paranormal” point of view. Why not? Paranormal is simply defined as “something science can’t explain” and if that ain’t THE definition of UFO, I don’t know what is. Regardless, this Bobcast episode is another dive into the realm of the paranormal, this time all about UFOs. Aaron Gulyas, author, educator, historian and host of The Saucer Life podcast joins us to talk a little about conspiricies, UFO lore and history and creepy black Cadillacs. Music of the episode is provided by those Canadian Creeps, The Band From Planet X. Brought to you by Good Life Digestive Health.

Episode 119 - The Mike Damante PUNK Interview
Mike Damante won me over a while ago with his “Punk Rock and UFOs” series of books, a mind-blowing series on paranormal weirdness and UFO related wildness. Mike’s latest book, “Hey Suburbia” also won me over - but in a different way. “Hey Suburbia” talks about punk rock, pop-punk and emo of the 1990’s and early 2000’s, mostly. There’s nostalgia, to be sure. But there’s also quite a bit about the course and trajectory of punk rock from those golden days up to the present day. Let me tell you, I listened to a bunch of Jimmy Eat World after I read the book, I cannot tell a lie. But I also looked at the future of punk rock in a different light after reading the book. With more hope, I should say. Well! Mike joins the Bobcast to talk all things PUNK in this episode, from how it all started for him, to answering that age old question - were big punk bands of the 90’s (that were successful) sell-out’s? Listen and find out! Also, Michael Crusty stops by with a brand new edition of Crusty’s Corner to talk with Nick from Canadian Rock Wrestling and play a PUNK song by Debt Cemetery. Lastly, War On Women appear in the episode with the song “White Lies”, which was hand picked by Mr. Damante just for this episode! Let’s get PUNK with Mike Damante and freinds!

Episode 118 - Haunted Harmonies with Villa Montezuma and Come Closer
Welcome to the first edition of a new series of Bobcast episodes, simply titled “Haunted Harmonies”. With these episodes, you’ll hear a little bit about the history and haunts of a particular paranormally active location, which is located somewhere in this great big haunted world of ours. Along with the history and haunts, let’s throw a band interview - a short one - into these episodes, because the Bobcast is PUNK. The rule is, the band has to be from the same town or area as the featured haunted location. In this case, we’re talking about San Diego, California’s Villa Montezuma, with the band of the episode being Come Closer. San Diego has a TON of haunted places, but I’m telling you, Villa Montezuma is the King/Queen of the Haunt Heap. Come Closer is likewise the cream of the crop in a sea of amazing bands from San Diego. The tales of strangeness from Villa Montezuma, the interview with J from Come Closer, a song titled “Get It Wrong” by Come Closer, this episode has it ALL. Brought to you by Good Life Digestive Health.

Episode 117 - Spider Interview with Hector Martinez
The band Spider, from the Los Angeles area, has pulled something off that not many bands have truly been able to do. They’ve taken the sound and the fury of 1980’s LA punk and hardcore and turned it into their own thing. A magical and perfectly punk thing, at that. Don’t think I’m saying the band lives in the past! No, Spider does their own thing, while hearkening back to the glory days of LA punk and hardcore. Hector Martinez, the singer/vocalist of Spider stops by The Bobcast to talk about the band, punk rock stuff, ghosts, UFOs and more! Two songs by Spider are in this episode, “Energy Gone Wrong” and “The Reeperbahn”. Presented by Good Life Digestive Health.

Episode 114 - Pleasant Gehman Interview Part II - Writing and Dancing
Pleasant Gehman returns to The Bobcast with a brand new episode and more stories, more magical mayhem that is the life of the incredible person, the Princess Of Hollywood, Pleasant Gehman! This time around we’re talking about Pleasant’s writing and dancing careers. Pleasant’s been doing both most of her whole life, to great effect. Though she has written mostly non-fiction stories of her life through the years, she’s the first person I’ve heard of that a publisher told “we can’t run this as fiction, it’s too crazy!!!”. That’s the life of Pleasant Gehman in a nutshell. Music of the episode by Screamin’ Sirens and those songs are “I Heard About You” and “Nine Times To Live” off of 1987’s “Voodoo”. Oh! The song “Voodoo” is also soothingly serenading you in the intro and outro background of the episode.

Episode 113 - Paranormal Ponderings IV - Cryptids with Hex-Files
What is a cryptid? The easy answer is - some type of creature/being/entity that is said to exist, but has never been proven to exist. Bigfoot, Nessie, Normie, Thunderbirds, you get the idea. Cryptids do fall under the catagory of paranormal phenomena in the sense that we just don’t know WHAT they are, so here we are talking about cryptids in a Paranormal Ponderings episode. Josh and Tamara of The Hex-Files Podcast join me in this episode to talk about a Bigfoot investigation they went on fairly recently, we’ll discuss the cryptids of their home state of North Carolina and also do a rhetorical “Battle Royale” type of thing with Bigfoot Vs. Mothman, that kind of thing. Who would win? Listen and find out! Music of the episode provided by The Weakerthans with the song “Bigfoot” and The Marred with the song “A Hidden Presence”. So, press play and let’s go look for Bigfoot! The Weakerthans appear courtesy of Epitaph Records
