Fortean researcher Joshua Cutchin joins us for a discussion on his new book A Trojan Feast, which examines the vast history of weird food exchanges between humans and otherfolk such as faeries, aliens, and Bigfoot.
Over the course of this wide-ranging conversation, we look at the food exchange phenomenon from a vast array of angles, leaving no stone unturned in our quest to decipher what is really going on during these enigmatic encounters.
Amongst the topics discussed are faeries and their predilection for a mysterious foodstuff known as ‘foyson,’ the ‘food taboo’ and how it may apply in modern times, the famous story of Joe Simonton’s alien pancakes, the paradox of aliens and faeries having human food despite not being human themselves, and the eerie similarities between faerie encounters and ET abductions.
Along the way we venture down a myriad of side roads discussing how salt seems to be kryptonite for faeries and other elementals, the mysterious edible known as ‘soma’ that has been lost to time, the Absorption Theory for how ETs may actually eat, the challenges of studying ancient accounts of entity encounters and modern controversial ET abduction accounts, how the exchange of sex factors into this entire realm of esoterica, and much, much more.
Altogether it is a cornucopia of esoteric insights previously left on the periphery of the paranormal which have now been freshly examined and collected thanks to the fine efforts of Joshua Cutchin in this new book A Trojan Feast.
