On this installment of Expanded Perspectives, the guys start the show off by talking about how the Philson household is more than ready for this year's Christmas! Then, a listener from the UK writes in about a strange-looking UFO he saw back in 1994 while out working one evening. Then, a witness, who was living at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds when she was younger, describes her encounter and later sightings of a gray-haired Bigfoot near the base.
After the break, Kyle brings up the bizarre story of the Mad Gasser of Mattoon! For several weeks in September 1944, people in the town of Mattoon, Illinois, showed the symptoms of exposure to poison gas--nausea, vomiting, weakness leading to near paralysis, lightheadedness, and even spitting up blood. All of the victims reported a "sweet cheap perfume odor" permeating their homes prior to the onset of sickness. Who or What was the Mad Gasser? Then, Chad from California calls in with a supernatural intervention from some unseen entity.
All of this and more on this installment of Expanded Perspectives!
