The extraterrestrial comedy podcast where we probe Scotlands most famous resident, the Loch Ness Monster. There’s of course a lot of visual evidence of Nessie including THAT photo (the Surgeon’s Photograph) but is this evidence honourable and trustworthy? Many believe that the monster is a plesiosaur but is that even possible? This is explored along with other theories. But where did it all begin? Well, this episode covers that too for you see, around 565 CE Saint Columba had what is believed to be the first ever encounter with the Loch Ness monster, at River Ness. Being a saint, would the power of the cross protect Columba? If not a plesiosaur, could Nessie be a buff eel, or a buff otter? What about a Tully Monster and speaking of Tullies, did the historic residents of Atlantis used to ride Tully Monsters? Could dolphins and Nessie be working together using crystals (calling back to a previous episode on dolphins)? Marine biologists will probably be disgusted by what they hear in this episode but sometimes, you’ve just got to open your mind. On the note of opening your mind, what if Pokemon were real and do Magikarp utilise performance enhancing drugs? If you really, really open your mind, just wait until you get a load of what History’s Ancient Aliens think about the origins of the Loch Ness monster… But could these ideas, linked to electromagnetic energies in deep bodies of water, explain the frequency of alien sightings around watery bodies? All that and more on this week’s file.

Music created via Garageband. Additional music via: https://freepd.com - thank you most kindly good people. There was also a segment whereby we uncovered the truth behind the Surgeon’s Photo in which the backing music to this section was Lurking In The Darkness, a tune from the Square Enix masterpiece Final Fantasy 7. The original soundtrack was composed by Nobuo Uematsu and produced by Uematsu along with Minoru Akao. Alongside that, you may have noticed the wonderful Dire, Dire Docks theme from Super Mario 64 courtesy of Nintendo and composed by legendary Koji Kondo. You know by now that we love to stick in special memories from our childhood and this one is particularly beautiful. On the note of beautiful, as we discussed Zora (again), there was a segment including the Zora’s Domain theme from Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (originally composed by Kōji Kondō). Finally, you may have heard Nintendo’s Pokemon theme thrown in there as Pokemon was discussed - created via Nintendo, Game Freak and original composer Junichi Masuda from whom’s work the Pokemon series music grew. Thank you, everyone.
