Spooky things happen every day all around us! Instead of brushing these peculiar moments and bizarre encounters off as chance, or mere coincidence, what if we talked about them, mapped them, and tried to decode the message? Liminal Earth (originally Liminal Seattle) was started by Garrett Kelly, co-founder of Hollow Earth Radio, and Jeremy Puma, local Seattle author and animist. In 2017, we started tracking our weirdnesses — dreams, ‘coincidences’, strange encounters, etc. — on a personal level. One day, we kind of simultaneously had the idea to start putting our experiences on a map, and Garrett suggested we open it up to anyone. In 2021, we welcomed Bex Atwood, Kitsap Peninsula witch and horticulturalist to the team, and now we spend our time going on adventures and investigating strange locations.
