Am I phoning it in again? Yes, but I really like this episode and for those who haven’t subscribed to the Patreon, this is what you can expect.

While I was perusing Patrick Hughye’s Field Guide to Extraterrestrials I found an entry concerning a mantis being. To me, this mantis looks like it’s getting down to “Cotton Eye Joe.” I tracked the story featured in it to an article written by Gary Smith for The Washington Post entitled “The Unspeakable Secret.” In it, he details an experience oddly similar to one featured in Budd Hopkins first book, Missing Time.

If you do read the Post article, I must include a trigger warning for transphobia, which I skipped over while doing this episode, cuz fuck that bullshit.
