The Monster Guys Podcast, Episode 001: FAERIES
Up front Note: We began recording these in early 2015, and had very little knowledge about podcasting, sound mixing, etc. The sound quality in these first few episodes isn’t bad by any means, but it isn’t top shelf either. We realize that, but we wanted to get started where we were and connect with you as fast as possible with this new and exciting venture. As we progress through the episodes, you’ll notice great strides along the way as we learn and grow.
Thanks for being a part of The Monster Guys Community and giving us a chance, and stick with us. Big things are coming our way through The Monster Guys Podcast.

In this episode, we talk specifically about the broad-ranged topic of Faeries, their differences, categorizations, history, and references to other countries and cultures around the world. Tales of the Leprechaun and the Japanese Tanuki play prominent in this week’s episode. What are faeries really? Is Tinkerbell a faerie (fairy)? What does J.R.R. Tolkien and Bram Stoker have to do with faeries? Are vampires faeries? Were the stories of faeries from the Old Country actually stories of the Old Gods? What do faeries have to do with mental illness and crops being destroyed? Learn answers to these questions and more in this episode.
You’ll be surprised just how many creatures in the world of monsters are considered Faeries. We open the box in this episode to further discuss specific monsters in future episodes.
As is our custom, we also touch a bit on religion and cultural influences as it pertains to Faeries.
In this episode of “Tales of the Unknown”, we discuss the phenomenon of the missing Great White shark. This beast was being tracked and simply vanished to the depths at an alarming speed, never to be seen again. What could possibly have taken this fierce shark without warning, and with such speed and violence? We’ll ask that question and throw some possibilities out there.
