Shane returns to share stories of shapeshifting dogmen, giant space clams, car-driving gnomes, pole-dancing aliens, even a Chinese man’s sexual encounters with a hairy-legged Michelin Man!

As co-host of Dark Notes Podcast, Shane spends his free time reading and sharing the most ridiculous weird-ass shit you will ever hear! So we joined forces today to read you a collection of our favorite high strangeness stories from our ever-growing book collections.

Hilarity ensues along the way as we get fucked over by technology, yet again! Shane got lost into a time slip for 8 minutes, but no worries! I remedied that with the wonders of modern A.I. technology.


Huge THANK YOU!!! to Shane/UFO Bigfoot from Dark Notes Podcast for joining again to share bizarre stories from his favorite books!
