Episode 43-Owl Parkour

In 1955, at a rural farmhouse in Kentucky, something never before witnessed took place. A large group of family and friends were taunted into an overnight shootout by strange, seemingly invincible creatures that looked metallic and appeared to float through the air. Many claimed the sightings were just a hoax, but the U. S. Air Force claimed the witnesses did have an interaction that night, but were just wrong about what they had seen. The group was actually tormented by…silver-painted monkeys that escaped from a circus! And although that would have been totally badass, it was complete malarkey.

Join Erica and Billy this week as they try to make sense of little metallic men vs. pissed off birds of prey, and take old friend “Balls Deep” Joe Nickell to task on his explanation of events! After you’ve listened, be sure to get on social media and share your thoughts and theories!
