This episode we talk with Drs. Rebecca Gibson and Jay VanderVeen about their upcoming edited volume Monstrous Males and Fatal Females due out in 2021. We also talk with one of the authors Dr. Holly Walters about her chapter on vampires, and we manage a bit on Zombies too.

We look at Gender and how the becoming undead can affect it. We also look at the use of sexual desire within the supernatural and get a sneak-peek at the contents of the edited volume.

Asteroids, Micro Diamonds, and the Younger Dryas with Jens Notroff: Archaeological Fantasies Ep 106

Today we talk to Jens Notroff about a recent report about a newly discovered asteroid crater under the Greenland Glacier. How is this connected to the Younger Dryas? What is the Younger Dryas? And is this evidence of Gobekli Tepe being older than it seems? (You can probably guess the answer for that one.)

Two Years of Archeological Fantasies!



That’s right! This will be year three of the Archeological Fantasies Podcast! We’ve got two years behind us and we haven’t run out of material to debunk yet.  It helps that new stuff pops up almost daily anymore, even if it is all recycled.

We decided to christen the New Year by rehashing the goals of the podcast and letting ourselves react a little to upcoming 4 years.  Ken,  Jeb,  and Sara have a few moments of political ranting and explaining why it’s even more important now for a show like ours to be on the air.

The Problem with Isims: Afrocentrism and the New World

Episode 16 of the ArchyFantasies Podcast is live!

We tackle a rough topic in this one, Afrocentrism is more than just a flawed diffusionist hypothesis. It points out the very real racism that was part of anthropology and archaeology past, and also points out the glaring flaws in trying to point to any singular culture as being the “mother culture”.

This is a heavy episode for us since it deal so directly with race, but I hope you’ll all give it a listen anyway!

Holy Newark Stones, Batman! The Archaeology Fantasies Podcast, Ep 7

Episode 7 of the Archaeology Fantasy podcast is live, and we’re talking about the Newark Holy Stones this time. Ken and I were able to pull in two experts in the stones, Jeff Gill and Brad Lepper.

They give us a new look at the stones. Gill and Lepper paint a picture of the stones that’s quite different from the ridiculous hoax and create an image that is actually quite noble. This podcast really changed the way I see the Newark Holy Stones, and I hope listeners can take that away too.
