Night of the Living Geeks · Click Here to Listen to All Night with the Living Geeks Episode 6: The Kelly-Hopkinsville Goblins OR Tin Cans Projecting Into Your Mind
On the evening of August 21, 1955 in the tiny town of Kelly, just above Hopkinsville in western Kentucky, the Sutton family had an encounter that would radically shape their lives and the field of ufology for generations to come. Diminutive creatures (the number varies based on who you ask) approached the small Sutton farm house.
The Suttons, like many living in remote areas, were quick to defend themselves from these visitors. But what played out next defies physics in many ways and leads those of us who study this event to continue questioning the nature of the phenomenon as we try to determine exactly what happened during the Kelly-Hopkinsville incident. Goblins? Spacemen? Fairies? Ultraterrestrials? We’re still not sure.
So grab your thinking cap, your .22, and maybe a tin can and let’s get into it!
Plus, as we explore this encounter, Taylor stumbles across an interesting theory that may work some way toward explaining this incident. And (!!) Seb’s Descent into the Archives makes a possibly new connection between our floppy-eared creatures and an experience that Jackie Gleason had in the 70s!
