This week, please bear with us... Benny got COVID and logistics were a nightmare. there's some rather odd background sounds for the more careful listener and rather stressful recording factors but we did our best!

But not just this super weird pouncer. we look at him in the context of other Phantom Attackers around the world, namely The London Monster, The Halifax Slasher, The Mad Gasser of Mattoon and the Dehli Monkey Man! This is a big one, folks, so please strap in!!

Episode 71 - GNOMES!!!

Yes, you heard it right, GNOMES!!!

You know what they are.... or do you?

An essential item in the 70's garden, also a kitsch addition to the modern garden perhaps, but what is a gnome, and why are we even interested in them?

Dive into the world of these wonderful little people with Matt and Benny, find out what the Hell is going on at the bottom of the garden, and perhaps solve some very mundane mysteries closer to home!

Youtube links to the freaky gnome footage can be found here:
