The Mothman (Part 4B)  

As we approach our Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States, Astonishing Legends would like to thank our fantastic fans from all over the world with our final Part 4B of The Mothman series - the rest of the conclusions. Not only did we think this would make a good bonus for our listeners, but an undivided Part 4 would've been, shall we say, monstrous. Of all the things to be thankful for this holiday season, just remember that as weird as things are, they could always get weirder. Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Tonight's Quote: “I have adopted the concept of 'Ultraterrestrials' — beings and forces which coexist with us but are on another time frame; that is, they operate outside the limits of our space-time continuum yet have the ability to cross over into our reality. This other world is not a place, however, as Mars or Andromeda are places, but it is a state of energy.” — John A.

The Mothman (Part 4A)  

Do we only see what we can understand? And if we refuse or are unable to understand, are we then not seeing all of the elements of our reality? If beings and creatures from alternate realities truly exist, then what is their origin story? What is their purpose and what are we to them, or more to the point, what do they want with us? In Part 4A of our series on the Mothman of Point Pleasant, WV, we examine some of these questions and try to find conclusions of our own, outrageous though they may seem to be. Tonight's Quote: “I have adopted the concept of 'Ultraterrestrials' — beings and forces which coexist with us but are on another time frame; that is, they operate outside the limits of our space-time continuum yet have the ability to cross over into our reality.

"Lazarus": Bowie-Musical kommt nach London - 09.11.2016  

Erstmals wird David Bowies Musical "Lazarus" auch in Europa gezeigt - in seiner Geburtsstadt London.

Januar nächsten Jahres auf dem Spielplan des King's Cross Theatre.

Preview

Homecoming centers on a caseworker at an experimental facility, her ambitious supervisor, and a soldier eager to rejoin civilian life — presented in an enigmatic collage of telephone calls, therapy sessions, and overheard conversations. It's an innovative, immersive audio experience — a psychological thriller unfolding across the six episodes of Season One. Premieres Wednesday, November 16th.

La chronique arts de la scène de Jean-Marie Wynants - "Lazarus", le spectacle musical de David Bowie  

Jean-Marie Wynants nous parle de la comédie musicale "Lazarus", mise en scène par Ivo van Hove, jouée à Londres jusqu'au 22/01 au King's Cross Theatre.

127-Rowing Across the Atlantic  

In 1896 two New Jersey clam diggers made a bold bid for fame: They set out to cross the North Atlantic in a rowboat, a feat that had never been accomplished before. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll follow the adventure of George Harbo and Frank Samuelsen, which one newspaper called "the most remarkable event in the way of ocean navigation that ever transpired."

We'll also meet some military mammals and puzzle over a thwarted burglar.

Pod Three - REVEALED: David Miliband makes $700,000 from refugee charity! 19th September  

This morning as part of Operation Guilt Trip, some do gooders arranged 2,500 life jackets on Parliament Square, by the statue of the great Winston Churchill to represent the refugees who have died trying to cross to Europe. One of the charities involved are the International Rescue Committee, whose CEO is failed politician David Miliband. I spoke to their spokesman, Sanj Srikanthan, and asked him, how much does David, who thinks the UK should take four times as many migrants despite being based in New York, earn for his charity work. His answer left me gobsmacked! Two Met Police officers are on "restricted duties" after smashing the windscreen of Leon Fontana after he refused to get out of his car. The liberal media rushed to blame the coppers, I think we need to see it from their point of view. Why didn't the suspect get out of the car? I spoke to Tony Long, a specialist firearms officer in London for 25 years, to find out what it's really like to be a police officer in these fight-or-flight moments. He didn't have much sympathy for Leon. FREE speech wants your view so get involved 020 38 29 1234, jon@talk2meradio.com @talk2meradiouk @jongaunt.
