Have you heard of cryptic encounters with the Jersey Devil, Goatman, or Dover Demon? Many of us are drawn to the strange cryptids reported throughout history. Perhaps it’s because they are mysterious and pique our curiosity. How can they be seen, yet, just like UFOs, there aren’t clear photos or a proper understanding of their existence? While most of us have heard of the elusive Jersey Devil, did you know that there are lesser-known cryptids that have terrorized people throughout history, including Native American Indians who have names for some of these strange creatures?
Tonight, Ben and Rob will discuss the Goatman, the Dover Demon, the Belled Buzzard, the Pope Lick Monster (said to haunt a bridge in Louisville, Kentucky), and the Snallygaster—the same creature JK Rowling used for her Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them book. Are all of these real? Could people be witnessing the same strange, cryptid monster, or are they all different? Why do they terrorize people, and where did they come from?
Join Ben and Rob on this Edge of Wonder live show as they dive deeper into these mysteries. They also answer your pressing questions at the end of the show, followed by a meditation/prayer.
“If you had your own cryptid show, which cryptid that you talked about tonight would you want to feature most on the show and go exploring for?” “Have you encountered a cryptid?” “Are there ways to protect yourself if you see a cryptid other than not talking about them?” “Why is there no mention of an apple in the Bible?” “What happened to Mothman? If he’s just out there trying to solve things, it’s surely just scrambling him around.”
