Background:

As we approach our Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States, Astonishing Legends would like to thank our fantastic fans from all over the world with our final Part 4B of The Mothman series – the rest of the conclusions.  Not only did we think this would make a good bonus for our listeners, but an undivided Part 4 would’ve been, shall we say, monstrous.  Of all the things to be thankful for this holiday season, just remember that as weird as things are, they could always get weirder.  Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

 

 

Tonight’s Quote:

“I have adopted the concept of ‘Ultraterrestrials’ — beings and forces which coexist with us but are on another time frame; that is, they operate outside the limits of our space-time continuum yet have the ability to cross over into our reality.  This other world is not a place, however, as Mars or Andromeda are places, but it is a state of energy.” 

John A. Keel, The Mothman Prophecies
