  • VYS0009 | If There's Something Weird - Halloween 2022: Ghostbusters

    October 31st, 2022  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 31 mins
    capitalism, ghostbusters, halloween, lovecraft, neoliberalism, reagan

    We got one! Before there was Hellier, before there was Twin Peaks there was Ghostbusters. In this special Halloween episode Hine and Buckley take a deep dive into this cherished classic - the movie that launched a thousand ghost hunting expeditions and at least one podcast about weird stuff. At the remove of 38 years and examined through the lens of Vayse, is Ghostbusters a beloved and harmless comedy blockbuster, a Lovecraftian cautionary tale, or a technicolour Reaganite super-dream? See you on the other side. Recorded 26 October 2022.

  • VYS0008 | To Hellier and Back - Vayse to Face with Will Salmon

    October 12th, 2022  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 35 mins
    hellier, penny royal, re-enchantment, synchronicity, will salmon

    If there is one common experience in the life of both Hine and Buckley that could be said to have jump-started Vayse into existence, it was watching the TV series Hellier. If there is one person alive right now who could be said to have been directly responsible for Hine and Buckley watching Hellier, that person is writer and journalist Will Salmon. In this episode Hine and Buckley talk to Will Salmon about Hellier, Penny Royal and whether these and other 'media viruses' can be responsible, consciously or unconsciously, for re-enchanting the lives of their audience - "I think we’re at the beginning of a global awakening man..." Recorded 5 October 2022.

  • VYS0007 | Too Much to Dream Last Night

    September 11th, 2022  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 38 mins
    goat god pan, hypnogogia, sigil magic, the dark man

    It's been less than 2 months since Buckley and Hine recorded VYS0003 but things are quickly getting weirder. Buckley talks about his recent dreamwork, his experiments with hypnagogia and a series of synchronicities at a London gig kickstarted by sigil magic. Hine, unexpectedly grounded from practical magic by the I Ching, recounts his experiences with the Dark Man and the Goat God Pan (one and the same?) dating from all the way back in his childhood to present day. Recorded 4 August 2022.

  • VYS0006 | Dreamtides - Vayse to Face with Field Lines Cartographer

    September 10th, 2022  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 42 mins
    cartesian dualism, creativity, dreams, dreamtides, déjà vu, field lines cartographer, free will, ghosts, intuition, time loops

    In this inaugural Vayse interview, Hine and Buckley talk to electronic musician, creative dreamer and fellow weirdo Mark Burford aka Field Lines Cartographer. The conversation ranges from how dreams can be part of the creative process to time loops, retrocausality and their implications on the concept of free will to Mark's very own haunted house. Recorded 28 June 2022.

  • VYS0005 | UFOnauts and Inverted Crosses - The Ultraterrestrial Hypothesis Pt.2

    September 9th, 2022  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 25 mins
    aleister crowley, allen greenfield, babalon working, jack parsons, ultraterrestrials

    As if Magonia and the Mothman weren't weird enough, in the second part of this two-part exploration of the Ultraterrestrial Hypothesis, Hine and Buckley discuss the connections between the phenomena and ritual magic by way of Allen Greenfield's secret cipher, Aleister Crowley's book of the Law and Jack Parson and L. Ron Hubbard's Babalon Working, which may or may not have opened and left open a gateway to another world... Recorded 21 July 2022.

  • VYS0004 | The Uncanny Vallée and the Unreal Keel - The Ultraterrestrial Hypothesis Pt.1

    September 8th, 2022  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 30 mins
    jacques vallee, john keel, passport to magonia, the mothman prophecies, the ultraterrestrial hypothesis

    What if UFO sightings and alien encounters aren't visitations by creatures from another planet but an experience of entities which surround us all the time but usually remain outside the perception of our five senses? What if the greys and flying saucers are a manifestation of a phenomena known in days gone by names such as fairies, elementals and angles? This is the Ultraterrestrial Hypothesis. In the first part of this two-part study Hine and Buckley explore these ideas by trying to wrap their heads around the work of Jacques Vallée and John Keel. Recorded 21 July 2022.
