This date in miss-tory… Toss the old history books in the trash and Forget what you know about the Dark Ages, the years have vanished as phantom time! A historical conspiracy centering on the early Middle Ages, phantom time is the theory that 300 years of history never actually existed. The proponents of this theory list several compelling reasons why the centuries never happened. Not even the famous European icon Charlemagne is safe in this one. A pope and two emperors are said to be the culprits behind it, and a few German researchers and scholars have seemingly caught them red-handed. How can history as we know it be wrong? What would be involved in making 300 years disappear? And is such a thing even possible? Find out in this history-laced episode! Also stick around for the winner of the 2018 Miss Cryptid Contest and the drawing for the sweepstakes!

Creepiness in triplicate. Flora welcomes back Derek Hayes from the Monsters Among Us podcast to discuss the high strangeness of Mirrored Men. A truly bizarre and recent phenomenon, Mirrored Men are strange men in odd locations who witnesses say move in synchronization and possibly cause missing time. Derek has fielded several calls of encounters with them, but is no closer to an explanation than anyone else. He and David talk about their origins, descriptions, and he even shares a couple of the calls he received. What are these odd entities? Can anything explain their appearances? David and Derek share ideas and get pretty out there in this one! Also, the winner of Week 3 of the 2018 Miss Cryptid Contest is announced, completing the list of finalists. Now it’s up to you to head over to the Blurry Photos Homepage to cast your vote on who should win the 2018 Miss Cryptid Contest!
