Through the annals of UFO lore and literature, there are tales of short humanoid beings with long ears, beings that seem to be ripped straight from the pages of fairy lore, beings that resemble bridge trolls and fauns.

On this episode, Greg Newkirk, Director of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult, Executive Producer of Hellier and the upcoming film, The Buildout, joins me to discuss a handful of cases including the Ririe, Idaho Car Jacking case, the Puerto Rican Chicken Poachers (that didn’t actually poach any chickens) and the Rat-Faced Humanoids of Italy.
