This week, we are graced with the presence of a dear friend of the show and one of our absolute favorite authors in this space. Joshua Cutchin has established himself as a true force in the world of speculative non-fiction. With titles like Trojan Feast, Where the Footprints End, and Ecology of Souls, he has made an impact on the Fortean community like few others in the last 20 years. But he has stepped out of the non-fiction category for his first fictional novel titled Them Old Ways Never Died. We talk a lot about the book, of course, but whenever we sit down with Josh, there is no resisting the urge for a true and thorough exchange of ideas. We talk recovery and the paranormal, UFO disclosure, and I do my very best to get a straight answer about where he’s headed next. Josh is a wildly intelligent and endlessly curious guy. We consider every chance to chat with him a true honor. Enjoy!


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.
