In the tradition of the original Eclectic Podcast – which was frequently used in the early days of GeekPlanetOnline to trial new podcast ideas – this month’s episode is a pilot for a brand new show!

Welcome to Fortcast: A Transmission of the Strange, a podcast which aims to examine, explain and, when necessary, debunk mysteries and unexplained phenomena from around the world.

In this pilot episode our Fortean supergroup – John Reppion (2000AD, The Fortean Times) , Maria J Pérez Cuervo (Folklore Thursday, The Fortean Times), Helen Grant (Urban Legends, Demons of Ghent) and Emma McNeil (Ethical Living, The Fortean Times) – explore mysterious vanishings whilst Si Spurrier (2000AD, X-Men) beams in from the ether with a creepy legend that will put you off your fish and chips…

This is a pilot episode, so we want your opinions! Let us know if you enjoyed the show, and if you didn’t tell us what you didn’t like. This is an open call for feedback, positive and negative; you’re hearing this before anybody else, and your views are important to us. Email This email address is being protected from spambots.
