| THE LINEUP |
INTO THE PORTAL
Into The Portal is a podcast dedicated to researching the unknown, unexplained and straight up strange. Whether it's ancient lost cities, encounters with paranormal phenomena or anything within the realm of the bizarre, we want to share these mysteries with the world. Hosted by Amber Rae and Andrew Mckay, ITP’s mission is to bring to light incredible stories many people may otherwise never hear about.
The name Into The Portal derives from the idea of attempting to view the unexplained through an alternate lens. It’s about being open to new possibilities and reorienting our own perspective to better understand the unknowable, find the lost, and piece together the unexplained.
This all started out as an obsession with the Forteana and a yearning to share my knowledge. After spending countless nights and hours talking to anyone who would listen, my friends and family suggested I start my own podcast. That is when I decided to take this one man show to the road, well actually, the airwaves and share my interests with like-minded people. Just like that, Obscure Anomalies was born. Join me as we journey through the unknown, the unexplained, and the unexplored mysteries of the world. #jointheobscure.
