On The Gralien Report this week, we examine news of a purported “pyramid” on Ceres, as well as how NASA’s chief spoke about alien life and Area 51 while talking with school children, which has caused an odd reaction among many enthusiasts. We also discuss news item relating to the tragic Charleston shooting, as well as the former White House chef who relocated to Taos, New Mexico, whose body was recently found on a remote mountain.

Then in hour two, we shift our focus to the idea of meaningful coincidence, whether the “meaning” behind synchronicity is entirely subjective, and if the idea of meaningful coincidence can be studied in a scientific capacity.

Finally, following the news that Scottish actress Karen Gillian has lent her voice to guided tours of Scotland’s most famous Fortean lake, we also examine a collection of the best, and most obscure, reports of mystery animals from over the years. Many of these have turned up in a number unlikely locations over the years, and in our exploration of such creatures, we look at everything from news reports of mystery animals, to folklore and its possible underpinnings in science.

    1. Hi “Anonymous”, we’re well aware of that. In fact, it’s kind of the reason we used it in the artwork for this episode, since the discussion deals with cryptozoology, and thus, the idea of “mysterious animals” like the Thylacine (or Tasmanian tiger), which are presumed to be extinct, but still reported in modern times.

      Then again, maybe I should consider one of the following: 1) that your hearing is impaired, and you were unable to listen to the podcast linked with the post, 2) that you are incapable of reading or comprehending, considering the curious usage of grammar with your comment (where every first letter is capitalized, and yet no punctuation was included… could it be that you were actually attempting to link to an article, but failed to do so?).

      Or, just perhaps, it’s more likely to be the following, far simpler solution: 3) that you’re an internet troll, and have no actual opinion… and shamelessly go around posting things on websites which state ridiculously obvious observations you’ve made, despite the fact that *you* are the one calling people “Idiot”.

      Touché. 😉
