Sinopsis

What's the Point?... Paranormal podcast taking an irreverent and normally fairly sceptical look at all things weird.

Episodios

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    22/07/2019 Duración: 27min

    Ari Aster's incredible Midsommar is the catalyst for more chat including annoying backpackers, festival drug dealers, and Viking legal disputes.

  • Godzilla

    Godzilla

    21/06/2019 Duración: 26min

    We're back and we've brought a massive friend. Yes, our monster sized absence is broken by an equally monstrous beast - GODZILLA, King of all the bloody monsters. How would he work in real life? Would he take down a Godzilla sized Mike Tyson? And more importantly, would Mike Tyson take down a Mike Tyson sized Godzilla?

  • Us and Doppelgängers

    Us and Doppelgängers

    17/04/2019 Duración: 35min

    Do you have a double? What would you get your double to do if you met them? What would you ask your double if you met them? Can we get any more lame hypothetical questions out of dopplegangers? You bet your double we can! We look at the troubling notion that there is another one of each of us out there... then immediately dismiss it as usual. Also we watched Jordan Peele's viscerally stunning 'Us', but you probably don't want to hear any more in depth reviews of that so you'll be glad to know ours is gloriously ill-informed.

  • Alien

    Alien

    29/03/2019 Duración: 30min

    No, one of us hasn't been hospitalised, imprisoned, or simply succumbed in the night - we've just been temporarily distracted. But we're BACK, and back with a bang, or a scream, whatever it is it doesn't matter because you won't be able to hear it where you're going. Step aboard the good ship Nostromo with your old pals. Seems like a nice bunch....

  • Santa With Muscles

    Santa With Muscles

    29/11/2018 Duración: 29min

    We watched Santa With Muscles so you don't have to. We'd still like you to, though. Also learn all about jolly aul St Nick in our special kind-of-paranormal-but-not-really Santa episode. Coming down yer chimneys.

  • Possum and Spiders

    Possum and Spiders

    13/11/2018 Duración: 37min

    The incy wincy spider.... has been around for about 380 million years and probably isn't going anywhere. We watched the British indie film 'Possum' with comedian and raconteur Simon Weekes. And we discovered fairly quickly it wasn't about a spider. But this is the paranormal podcast so look forward to a bit of crowbarring of weird stuff at some point. Enjoy!

  • Halloween 2018

    Halloween 2018

    22/10/2018 Duración: 29min

    Welcome to our Halloween podcast, in which we (like 97% of everyone else doing podcasts at the minute) look back at John Carpenter's seminal 1978 slasher Halloween. Is Halloween paranormal? Has Naylor had a date in the time we've been away? Could Lee's mate from school Mikey Wright batter Myers in a fight? We are, very much like Michael Myers, back. Unlike Myers though, we're still struggling to be relevant. Enjoy!

  • A Quiet Place

    A Quiet Place

    16/04/2018 Duración: 29min

    We stepped it up a notch this episode and hit London's glittering West End with Dave Corkery from the award-winning Cinemile podcast. We watched A Quiet Place, and then told Dave all about The Hopkinsville Goblins - a supposed real life occurrence in Kentucky in 1955 in which a crowd of monsters invaded a small farm. What were they? What do they have to do with A Quiet Place? Was Dave interested at all? Listen to find out...

  • Ancient Aliens

    Ancient Aliens

    06/02/2018 Duración: 33min

    It's finally happening. After years of flirting with it, we have decided to tackle the roots of mankind's very existence. So it turns out a load of aliens had sex with a load of ramapithecus' or whatever, and then millions (or thousands depending on who you speak to) of years later came back to help us out with the pyramids in Egypt and a few other places on Earth before leaving again. Clear? Good.

  • Crabs

    Crabs

    15/11/2017 Duración: 34min

    How big is the biggest crab? Is Sebastian actually a crab? Is there such thing as a Demon crabs? Is Attack of the Crab Monsters any good? When is Lee going to admit there is nothing paranormal about crabs? Find out the answers to ALL of these questions plus many more as we dive headlong into the world of our distant, distant, decapod cousins in this pinchy episode of the Paranormal Podcast.

  • Fear

    Fear

    31/10/2017 Duración: 30min

    FEAR. Spiders, snakes, clowns, responsibility. We all have them. In many ways they are the route of all paranormal experience so we probably should have talked about the subject a while ago. Well, definitely before the worm episode anyway. We discuss the nature of fear, what purpose it serves from an evolutionary standpoint, and for some reason how annoyed we both are at people who want a medal for eating spicy food. We also review the 2017 film adaptation of It (very quickly).

  • Vampires

    Vampires

    06/08/2017 Duración: 38min

    Did you know the first ever vampire was also the first ever woman?* This and even more fascinating vampire facts (Vacts) in this episode of the WTP Paranormal Podcast. Also we take a look at F.W. Murnau's seminal Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror to see how a PROPER vampire looks. *According to the bible

  • Apes

    Apes

    16/07/2017 Duración: 30min

    The Perfect Storm of a podcast has finally arrived. Apes, evolution, prison, Mike Tyson, and upper body strength all combine to make this discussion on paranormal apes probably the most important one there has ever been. We also review War for the Planet of the Apes.

  • Birds

    Birds

    03/07/2017 Duración: 30min

    Our avian amigos come under the unyielding glare of the WTP Paranormal investigative team. By that we mean we watched Hitchcock's 1963 masterpiece The Birds, then talked for a bit about directing techniques, chicken language, and Tom the Turkey. Not heard of him? You're in for a treat...

  • Mummies

    Mummies

    12/06/2017 Duración: 32min

    Talk like an Egyptian* *Sorry. We travel (metaphorically) to ancient Egypt and set our unyielding gaze upon mummies. We review Tom Cruise action packed blockbuster The Mummy and are joined by The Cinemile's Dave Corkery. So this edition you are GUARANTEED to hear someone who makes a bit of sense. Who used to guard people's intestines in the afterlife? How many Boots bandages would it take to mummify someone? How much running does Tom Cruise do in this film? Download, listen and subscribe to find out.

  • Aliens

    Aliens

    02/06/2017 Duración: 33min

    In space, no one can hear you lazily rip off the most iconic tagline of all time.. Nevertheless, we're still not going to. We look to the skies to tackle the huge subject of aliens, via Ridley Scott's Alien Covenant. Ridiculously, we attempt to talk about interstellar travel, astrobiology, and the occurrence of earth like planets in the universe. What's even more amazing is that Naylor does not once bring up Space Jam.

  • Giants

    Giants

    15/05/2017 Duración: 26min

    HERE BE GIANTS. And also here be everything you need to know about them ever, in one podcast. We talk giants, cyclopses, pirates, and really tall people. Naylor brings up a horrible person from his past as usual, and we manage at least four minutes before we start veering onto violent crimes. Enjoy! We also watch Spielberg's 2016 BFG, because we are so current.

  • Zombies

    Zombies

    30/04/2017 Duración: 28min

    Shuffle your way over to the WTP Paranormal Podcast cos we're talking all about ZOMBIES. We watch the 2015 Arnie zombie drama Maggie, the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake, and ONE of us watched World War Z for about the 14th time. As usual all the biggest questions are asked: Where would you go in a zombie apocalypse? How long would you last? And which one of Naylor's nans was the one who ate a banana sandwich every day of her life?

  • Hypnosis

    Hypnosis

    02/04/2017 Duración: 27min

    Turning our blurred gaze onto the highly controversial subject of hypnotism, we combine this with reviewing Jordan Peele's critically acclaimed 'Get Out'. Will we use this deep, metaphor strewn film as a springboard to a conversation about racial politics in Trump's America? Or will Naylor just tell a load of weird anecdotes about Wales and end up talking about prison again? Only one way to find out.

  • Dragons

    Dragons

    21/03/2017 Duración: 48min

    Here Be Dragons... or not really dragons but definitely scaly reptile-y things, as we found out when we went to see The Great Wall. Un deterred, we still dedicate a bumper edition of the WTP Paranormal Podcast to everyone's favourite fire breathers, taking saints, snakes, and sheep along for the ride. With special guest Dave Corkery from the Cinemile Podcast, he helps make this episode at least 33% less moronic.
