A real man of the cloth. Flora takes a deep dive into the divisive world of the Shroud of Turin on this episode of Blurry Photos. A venerated holy object of Christianity, the Shroud of Turin is the supposed burial cloth of Jesus, and the debate on its authenticity has raged for years. David hit the books hard and came up with a lot of information to pass along. So as not to melt brains with info overload, it’s all been split in twain for you. Part 1 deals with the description, history, experimentation, and pro-authenticity claims about the shroud. The upcoming part 2 will cover the anti-authenticity claims, as well as questions and thoughts Flora had along the way. Get your sticky tape, microscopes, and bibles out – this one’s shrouded in mystery!

Does that man look a little Husky to you? Fur real. After an interrupted Photober, Flora is back at it with the first part of a double feature on Dogman Tales! With stories of upright canids that act eerily intelligent, dogman tales have poured into the world of cryptozoology since the early 90’s. While more and more reports are shared than ever before, stories of these strange, dog-headed bipeds date back much further than you might expect. David breaks down dogmen with a basic description and short history of this type of creature. Dogs feature heavily in the folkore of many cultures and the connection between them and crossroads lore is also discussed. Some encounters are covered, including one of the most famous dogman-related events that helped spark the sharing of current phenomena. Stay tuned for the next part, which will cover even more encounters and explanations!
