This week, we had the honor of sitting down with one of our favorite new friends: Mothboy Matt! Matthew Schang is one-third of the Mothboys Podcast, a co-founder of the universally loved Cryptid Bash, and an absolute cornerstone of the Fortean community. We discuss a harrowing double encounter with ghost lights and a poorly placed fence, the nature and state of cryptozoology, and the  vital importance of inclusivity in the future of our industry. 

Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only. The content and discussion in this show will necessarily engage with various accounts that include violence, anxiety, fear, and occasional body horror. Much of it will be emotionally and intellectually challenging to engage with. We will flag especially graphic or intense content so as to never put you in an uninformed or unprepared position. We will do our best to make this a space where we can engage bravely, empathetically, and thoughtfully with difficult content every week.
