Postman Shibble is forced to navigate a minefield of creatures which convey cultural turmoil, colonial racism and sexual taboo! Controversial creatures he unintentionally covered on his own show, with the help of my puppeteering from the shadows! 🤣
We discuss Chupacabra, Popobawa, Pishtaco and Mamlambo: Monsters spawned from contemporary anxieties of foreign societies, locally used as cultural or linguistic memes. Societal boogeymen who cross national borders to find themselves bastardized as cryptids by Western society.
Why is cultural imperialism still prevalent in the cryptid world? We are just white dudes who have no fuckin’ clue!… so we scrap this topic and go off bastardizing our favorite movie monsters!
Huge THANK YOU!!! to Shibble from Uncle Monster’s Spooky Time Fright Hour for spraining his ankles tap-dancing around the questionable issues I threw at him! Thankfully, he is not the editor of this podcast, so everything remained as is in all its hilarity! 🤣
