The Newkirks Talk Museum Ethics, Mothman, and Their Supernatural Love Story on Euphomet
Tune in to the latest two episodes of the Euphomet podcast to hear museum founders Dana & Greg Newkirk discuss their lives curating the world’s only mobile museum of the unexplained, how Mothman has become a symbol of their ongoing quest to engage the strange, and the supernatural love-story that brought the two of them together despite international borders.
In the first episode, “Idol of Nightmares”, host Jim Perry delves into the duos work with haunted artifacts, the ethics involved in running a paranormal museum, and why their work is so important. It even involves an on-the-fly interview with “Billy”, the idol in question, much to Perry’s amazement.
Episode two follows the Newkirks on an important trip to Point Pleasant, West Virginia, where the lifelong paranormal investigators take Jim on a hunt for The Mothman, a misunderstood entity that’s become a symbol of forward momentum for Greg & Dana. Just a heads up: this episode will make you cry, so bring the tissues.
