    In VYS0018, Hine and Buckley interviewed author and researcher Kathryn J Preston about her book, the 'LaManChe Zodiac" in which she described a terrestrial zodiac spanning three counties in the north of England. At the heart of this zodiac is Round Loaf, a man-made Neolithic mound constructed millennia ago on the stark moorlands of Anglezarke. According to Kathryn Preston's book, Ley Lines radiate from the mound into the surrounding country and Anglezarke has become a hot spot for UFOs, sightings of cryptids and other high strangeness. In this SideVayse, friend of the show Ric Bennett, a life-long resident of the area, recounts some of his own strange encounters and takes Hine and Buckley on a guided tour of this weird and uncompromising landscape. Recorded 6 May 2023.

    May 10th, 2023  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 36 mins
    dark man, darragh mason, spirit box, vayse

    Darragh Mason is a podcasting hero to Hine and Buckley, he's the host of the truly excellent, award-nominated Spirit Box podcast but he's also an multi-award-winning photographer, a researcher specialising in the Djinn and the Aghori Hindu sect and the co-creator of the wonderful Sigil Engine. Darragh's latest project (one of many) is his up-coming book "Song of the Dark Man, Father of Witches" and this episode takes a deep and, at times, emotionally charged dive into the mysterious figure of the Dark Man, his prolific but largely unrecognised role in initiation into the world of witchcraft, his infrequent but significant appearances throughout folklore and his apparent ascent in the psychic aftermath of the pandemic... recorded 2 May 2023.

    crop circles, government deception, mark pilkington, mirage men, misinformation, ufos, vayse

    If you don't know Mark Pilkington by name, chances are you will be familiar with some of his work: he's the author of the seminal history of deception and misinformation throughout the history of the UFO phenomenon, Mirage Men, and producer of the documentary of the same name, he runs Strange Attractor Press, the diverse, beloved and well respected counterculture publisher, he's a journalist, having written for the Fortean Times, the Guardian and Bizarre Magazine amongst others, and he also records and performs music with Teleplamsiste, Luminous Foundation and the Begotten. In this episode Hine and Buckley chat to Mark about the legacy of Mirage Men, which is having a moment again with the tenth anniversary of the documentary falling this year, the recent release of the audiobook and continued favourable nods in the occultosphere and beyond. The conversation also takes turns into the way misinformation is now a pervasive part of our everyday lives, Mark's ideas about the nature of the phenomenon itself and his experiences as a crop circle hoaxer... recorded 7 March 2023

  • VYS0019 | It's A Very, Very Mad World - Donnie Darko

    April 12th, 2023  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 54 mins
    donnie darko, mad world, mental health, time travel, vayse

    In December 2002 Hine and Buckley met at the Dukes Cinema in Lancaster, Lancashire, UK, for what become one of their most cherished movie-going experiences - to watch an independent film which had already gathered a cult following: Donnie Darko. Donnie Darko is a divisive film popular opinion swings between it being a poignant and magical modern classic to it being amateurish, film school bullshit with an inexplicably great cast (and soundtrack!!!). In this feature length episode (an entire swaggering minute longer than the run-time of the theatrical cut itself!) Hine and Buckley drill down deep into why the film still means so much to them almost 21 years later, what Richard Kelly actually intended the film to mean, why it's actually a '90s masterpiece (despite not being set, made or released in the '90s) and what the "S" in "S. Darko" might stand for... Recorded 16 March 2023.

    January 25th, 2023  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 2 mins

    It's the bleak midwinter: dark, cold, moods are low and the festive period seems like a year ago already - so who better for Hine and Buckley to catch up with than Jennifer Lane, author of The Wheel: A Witch's Path to Healing Through Nature and upcoming spell book The Witch's Survival Guide: Spells for Healing from Stress and Burnout: Spells for Stress and Burnout in a Modern World?

    To usher out the old year and welcome in the new, Hine and Buckley take a look back at a selection of the weirdest news stories of 2022 and track them against the development of Vayse throughout the year: Fish-falls, haunted AI art, dreaming arachnids and the persistent, bizarre and unfounded claims of Uri Geller - this episode has it all... and more... Recorded 27 December 2022 on location at Shireshead Studio, Lancashire.

  • SideVayse: SVYS001 | Numinous Melancholy

    December 22nd, 2022  |  Season 1  |  29 mins 24 secs
    carol of the bells, christmas blues, food banks, inequality, numinous melancholy

    Welcome to SideVayse: an extra shot of weird across the bows of an increasingly incohesive reality. This is a place for the oddities that don't quite belong in the main podcast but are still certified 100% pure Vayse. In this inaugural episode of SideVayse Hine talks about his recent musings on Numinous Melancholy, the pleasurable sadness that seems to haunt the winter months, why the feeling is particularly potent this year and what, if anything, can be done about it. Recorded 15 December 2022.

  • VYS0013 | A Vayse-man Came Travelling - Yule 2022

    December 21st, 2022  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 43 mins
    servitor, shamanic journeying, shamanism, spirit box

    In this noticeably un-Christmassy Christmas episode Hine and Buckley catch up on the events of the past few months. Occult experiments in an Air BnB in Yorkshire? Check. Contact with a mysterious and potentially angry entity on the spirit box? Check. Teaming up with a spirit buddy called Herman? Check. And what is Hine doing taking spiritual advice from frogs, salamanders and bears? Better check for yourself... Recorded 15 December 2022

  • VYS0012 | Order Out of Chaos - Vayse to Face with Mark Vincent

    December 14th, 2022  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 36 mins
    chaos magic, chronic pain, consciousness, hypnotism, mark vincent, sigil magic

    When Hine and Buckley had the idea to start a podcast about weird stuff in order to re-evaluate their reality this was the exact thing they had in mind. Mark Vincent is a man of many disciplines and much discipline - chaos magician, hypnotist, drummer, Lavey Satanist and purveyor of mind-blowing ideas. What was intended to be a discussion about chaos magic quickly spins off-track and takes a fascinating detour through the hard problem of consciousness, assembly theory, overcoming chronic pain and the pervasive nature of trance through occult practice. If you come away from listening to this episode with your idea of reality intact, then maybe you don't really exist at all... Recorded 21 November 2022.

    In the second part of this two part interview with legendary Occultist and UFOlogist Dr Allen H Greenfield, Hine and Buckley go deep asking questions about: the Black Lodge, the Babalon Working, Hellier and the collapse of Western Civilisation.

  • VYS0010 | Amazing Stories - Vayse to Face with Dr Allen H Greenfield Pt.1

    November 23rd, 2022  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 10 mins
    allen greenfield, secret cipher of the ufonauts, synchronicity, terry r wriste, ufos, vayse

    Occultist or UFOlogist? Teacher or trickster? Keeper of secrets or straight-talking raconteur? Dr Allen H Greenfield is all of these things and infinitely (or a finite very, very large number) more. In this first part of a two-part interview Allen talks about how he first uncovered the potential of the secret cipher, sets the record straight on Gray Barker and Jim Moseley, talks about the plasticity of reality and tells the story of how a single small hoax has the potential to instigate legitimate phenomena on a large scale... recorded 13 November 2022
