Ep 72: Californian Gnome Portals

Our guest describes a sighting in 2016 in California, which occurred after a plant medicine church meeting. Whilst sitting in his car waiting for a friend, he watched two gnomes, no more than three ft tall in height, appear from a bush one after the other. They ‘waddle’ across the street and disappear into another bush.

(Apologies for the poor sound quality! I have done the best I can with the file – it was much worse to begin with). 


In the exclusive bonus episode on Patreon we hear of a multiple witness sighting of a white glowing human-sized figure after taking part in an indigenous ritual. It was observed on private land and the owner of the land appeared to be aware of the spirits that he shared this space with. The encounter lasted several minutes and the being emitted a ‘headlight’ type of light which shone into his eyes.
