Episode 81 – Creature Features Part I: A SciFi Original

Superduperstitious goes to Hollywood in Part I of another Special Report!After a very important and then suddenly completely pointless PSA, Wyatt leads in with a discussion of mutation in movies. So often the crutch of screenwriters who want a monster and want it NOW, mutation tends to follow a few very specific beats in movies, all of them fun and giggle-worthy.Jake then heads in a more behavioral direction, examining the often biologically illogical ways monsters tend to act in order to serve their narrative purpose. And he manages to do this through somehow mostly dinosaur examples.Have your popcorn handy, keep away from that glowing purple stuff, and get ready for the beginning of a goofy, science-y, and cinematic deep-dive with Superduperstitious!EPISODE LINKSPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/superduperstitiousWyatt’s storyDistrict 9: https://youtu.be/waYpKWiNI5A?t=204The Island of Dr. Moreau: https://youtu.be/N6d4LJWldM0?t=191Them!: https://youtu.be/v4URRp39XOo?t=63Ant sounds for babies: https://youtu.be/G2TMZoURwYQTMNT: https://youtu.be/cmXGQq46hLc?t=115Jake’s storyJurassic Park III: https://youtu.be/X1hMXIWl8DwKing Kong (2005): https://youtu.be/fOolxUEFCBoCDC rabies info: https://www.cdc.gov/rabies/specific_groups/veterinarians/clinical_signs.htmlAnaconda: https://youtu.be/yQmAdY-jIpI?t=194

Episode 80 – Below Underneath

All good things must come to an end, and also so does August Around the World. For the last leg of this particular journey, it’s time to head to Australia!To be fair, this is hardly the show’s first visit to this particular continent (or even its third), but this IS the first trip to Australia that is exclusively about ghost stories! Jake leads off with another Reddit find, because he truly is the worst at finding ghost story sources. Listen to the actually fairly heartwarming tale of a little girl and her perhaps not-so-imaginary friend, and find out whether ghosts die when hit by trucks.Then, after the most chilling round of Shadowlands Roulette to date, Wyatt discusses the Monte Cristo homestead, a place where everyone and their baby gets thrown down the stairs to their death. Does this schmancy old house turned bed and breakfast live up to its reputation as Australia’s most haunted sandwich-named building? For a couple hundred dollarydoos a night, you can find out firsthand!The month-long world tour may be ending, but never fear! There are plenty more adventures ahead. So grab some bleach, turn on a relaxing vacuum cleaner, and tune in to this week’s episode of Superduperstitious!EPISODE LINKSPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/superduperstitiousKaijin depiction: http://bit.ly/2ZvJVsKJake’s story“Potential Lifelong Haunting”: http://bit.ly/2PjPdDEImaginary friends: http://bit.ly/30JdEM2Wyatt’s storyMonte Cristo background: http://bit.ly/346KLvCMonte Cristo website: https://www.montecristo.com.au/history.htmlMonte Cristo hauntings: http://bit.ly/2ZxwIj1Reviews: http://bit.ly/2UapfkU

Episode 79 – Oh. Canada.

August Around the World won’t stop until August does! YOUR MOVE, AUGUST.This installment finds the boys in Canada! But not literally. (Although, depending on how close to the release date you happen to catch this episode, Wyatt actually MIGHT be actively in Ontario, so there you go.) ANYWAY, guess what’s back? The Phantom of the Chicago! And guess what it probably still is? Birds!Once the regional fun begins in earnest, Wyatt kicks things off all the way up in Nunavut, with a Baffin Island Inuit creation tale involving familiar lycanthropic imagery. Try to ignore the implications of a human-canine marriage long enough to follow the trail south to Quebec, where Europeans bring… tales of the very same creatures? Remember: the first rule of being a loup-garou is you do NOT talk about being a loup-garou.Jake then heads west all the way to the Pacific, with a Vancouver ghost story that’ll scare the blankets right off of you. If you’re house sitting all alone and start to get creeped out, you’d be wise to leave the lights on — but that may not be enough. Redditors really know how to deliver, don’t they?Keep your tuque on tight so your ears don’t get sickle sliced, and stay away from your aunt’s swimming pool — it’s all aboot the Great White North on this episode of Superduperstitious.

Episode 78 – Not the Real Sredni Vashtar

Wyatt and Jake are determined to stick to their month-long prompt of finding stories from all around the world, even if they’re terrible at it. This week, it’s India!Following a quick PANDER session for patrons, Jake continues to use Reddit as a crutch as he just kinda dumps out a series of random stories vaguely connected to the country in question. Haunted objects? Haunted houses? Very tall women? This segment’s got ‘em all, plus a horrible humanoid creature sighting for extra good measure.It’s then time to face the dreaded wheels in a long overdue round of Shadowlands Roulette, but that doesn’t deter Wyatt from proceeding onward to tell the story of some bugs and some music. Turns out, when there are more people around to spread rumors, those rumors spread very effectively. But, like, nobody ENJOYS getting randomly scratched in the face at night, so, you know.Be cautious of any unpainted decorations brought home by family members, and try not to repeat “sanedo sanedo sanedo laal sanedo” TOO many times if you can avoid it.

Episode 77 – Toto Tales

August Around the World continues, this time in Africa!After a bit of clarification RE: the Fire Killer (namely the fact that Wyatt and Jake are not him), Wyatt takes off into the forests of the Congo River basin in search of an elusive ape. And this time, it’s not even an upright one! This is the story of how sometimes the legends really ARE true. And at the end of the journey, you find a creature that poops just SO big.Jake heads in a different direction, with some botanical buffoonery, namely the so-called Madagascar Devil Tree. Is anyone really surprised that a bunch of white people would totally eat up a story about a tree that totally eats up people? The tale itself may be absurd, but you won’t leave empty-handed! Jake also provides some half-assed science about the world’s REAL carnivorous plants, and then fails to remember the verb “to taper”.Get ready to meet your smash-y cousins, and don’t drink anything from any flailing plants as you tuck into this week’s episode of Superduperstitious!EPISODE LINKSPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/superduperstitiousFire Killer reports: https://www.superduperstitious.com/fieldreportsWyatt’s storyGorilla legend: https://theglyptodon.wordpress.com/2011/10/04/the-gorilla-500-bc-1861-ad/Ufiti: http://www.occultopedia.com/u/ufiti.htmAndrew Battell: http://bit.ly/2KpHrE2Bili ape mystery: https://www.karlammann.com/bili.php#.XUxk85NKjUIBili apes found: https://www.theguardian.com/science/2007/jul/14/conservation.internationalnewsOliver the chimpanzee: http://bit.ly/OliverChimpanzeeJake’s storyCrinoid: https://cedarvalleyrockclub.org/siteImages/Crinoids/Image14b.jpgDevil Tree of Madagascar: http://hoaxes.org/archive/permalink/man_eating_tree_of_madagascarMoar spooky tree: http://lostcities.weebly.com/articles/first-postSheep-eating plant: https://theextremehorticulturist.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/338.jpg

If you thought this podcast was above exploiting the cuteness of a baby animal for attention, think again! And while you’re at it, here’s an episode all about dog-related stuff.Exhausted new puppy parent Wyatt begins with a few accounts of the White Things of West Virginia, also known as Sheepsquatch (and also apparently sometimes called Devil Dogs, but you won’t find that out until well after the fact). Is it a bear? Is it a different, older bear? Whatever it is, it’s got some stank.Following a definitely-not-pre-recorded segment of The Quaff, Jake treads some familiar ground on just two legs. That’s right: even more upright canine tales! Gird your car’s loins as you fumble for your keys, and when in doubt, make a break for the tree line.This episode contains puffing and swimming, swimming and puffing, and some cuddly cameos from the too-cute Kuma, the Official Dog of Superduperstitious!

Episode 74 – Ho, Dag!

It was only a matter of time before Superduperstitious submitted to the siren song of frontier folktales, so at long last, it’s a full episode of fearsome critters!Hold on tight for this breathless thrill ride through the utter lunacy that is American lumberjack mythology (and also learn way more science than this topic could possibly warrant). You’ll hear all about the boob-loving German ancestor of a western staple, you’ll witness an abomination so pathetic that it just kinda melts when looked at, and you’ll even get some diet advice that involves driving your head through trees.Also, if you’ve ever wondered how hard you’d have to slap somebody to instantly turn them to a gas, that, too is all covered in this hoot — nay, this dungavenhooter — of an episode of Superduperstitious!EPISODE LINKSPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/superduperstitiousLumberwoods tales: http://www.lumberwoods.comJackalope: https://mythology.net/mythical-creatures/jackalope/Wolpertinger: http://hoaxes.org/animals/comments/wolpertingerGoofus bird: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goofus_birdSplinter Cat: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fclw/splintercat.htmlTeakettler: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TeakettlerCentral American Whintosser: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fclw/whintosser.htmlSquonk: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fclw/squonk.htmlTripodero: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fclw/tripodero.htmlHodag: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HodagDungarvon Whooper: http://bit.ly/DungarvonWhooperDungavenhooter: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fc/dungavenhooter.htmlPhysics help: http://bit.ly/DungavenhooterPhysics

Episode 73 – In the Weeds on the Meat Man

Superduperstitious is back at it again! And “it”, in this particular instance, means “supernatural/ghosty stories”. Superduperstitious is back at supernatural/ghosty stories again. It works.Wyatt leads in, first with a PSA about being Satan (don’t), then with the SOUL-WRENCHING TERROR that is the Hotel Monte Vista. This Arizona getaway contains very nearly a dozen ghosts, and all of them DO STUFF, which is of course, just, so scary. And all the staff are great with babies.Then, following an extra special update on the Phantom of the Chicago (featuring none other than the Fire Killa himself), Jake explores the phenomenon of the witching hour. Can ghosts and demons tell time? What time is it right now? Shit, that late already? Am I still up writing this thing?

Episode 75 – Dog Sh*t

Episode 74 – Ho, Dag!

It was only a matter of time before Superduperstitious submitted to the siren song of frontier folktales, so at long last, it’s a full episode of fearsome critters!Hold on tight for this breathless thrill ride through the utter lunacy that is American lumberjack mythology (and also learn way more science than this topic could possibly warrant). You’ll hear all about the boob-loving German ancestor of a western staple, you’ll witness an abomination so pathetic that it just kinda melts when looked at, and you’ll even get some diet advice that involves driving your head through trees.Also, if you’ve ever wondered how hard you’d have to slap somebody to instantly turn them to a gas, that, too is all covered in this hoot — nay, this dungavenhooter — of an episode of Superduperstitious!EPISODE LINKSPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/superduperstitiousLumberwoods tales: http://www.lumberwoods.comJackalope: https://mythology.net/mythical-creatures/jackalope/Wolpertinger: http://hoaxes.org/animals/comments/wolpertingerGoofus bird: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goofus_birdSplinter Cat: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fclw/splintercat.htmlTeakettler: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TeakettlerCentral American Whintosser: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fclw/whintosser.htmlSquonk: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fclw/squonk.htmlTripodero: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fclw/tripodero.htmlHodag: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HodagDungarvon Whooper: http://bit.ly/DungarvonWhooperDungavenhooter: http://www.lib.lumberwoods.com/fc/dungavenhooter.htmlPhysics help: http://bit.ly/DungavenhooterPhysics

Episode 74 – Ho, Dag!

Episode 73 – In the Weeds on the Meat Man

Superduperstitious is back at it again! And “it”, in this particular instance, means “supernatural/ghosty stories”. Superduperstitious is back at supernatural/ghosty stories again. It works.Wyatt leads in, first with a PSA about being Satan (don’t), then with the SOUL-WRENCHING TERROR that is the Hotel Monte Vista. This Arizona getaway contains very nearly a dozen ghosts, and all of them DO STUFF, which is of course, just, so scary. And all the staff are great with babies.Then, following an extra special update on the Phantom of the Chicago (featuring none other than the Fire Killa himself), Jake explores the phenomenon of the witching hour. Can ghosts and demons tell time? What time is it right now? Shit, that late already? Am I still up writing this thing? Damn.Hang some steaks on the chandelier and get some damned sleep, it’s Superduperstitious time!EPISODE LINKSPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/superduperstitiousVirginia PSA: http://bit.ly/SDSPSA1Superduperstitious Field Reports: https://www.superduperstitious.com/fieldreportsWyatt’s storyHotel Monte Vista: https://www.hotelmontevista.com/site/page/view/ghostStoriesTripAdvisor: http://bit.ly/MonteVistaReviewsJake’s storyEarly morning cat stare down: http://bit.ly/fuzzy_laniusScratching and knocking on my door at 3 am: http://bit.ly/green_thumb_witchFirst usage of “witching hour”: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/witching-hourSignificance of 3: https://www.tuftandneedle.com/resources/what-is-the-witching-hour/Significance of 3 is maybe bullshit: http://www.icysedgwick.com/witching-hour/International Journal of Dream Research: http://bit.ly/Luke-Zychowicz-2014Final witching hour story: http://bit.ly/Static42069
