Mike Burton of Genuine Chit-Chat has a different guest on his show each episode and on this one, he speaks with Janine Mercer; host of the ODDentity podcast, creator of Corvus review, founder of PodMoth Media and friend of the show!


In brief, this was recorded in September 2020 and Mike & Janine’s conversation starts with a small amount of COVID/lockdown talk, before discussing Janine’s hearing issues and the weirdness of 2020 before they talk the fun of collecting. The chat then changes gear into a discussion on cryptids, vampires, legends, werewolves and aliens, before talking about where Janine’s intrigue into the weird & wonderful came from, plus they discuss “hung jesus”, religion & legends/monsters, and the conversation ends with a small discussion on politics.
