  • Do you believe that the Loch Ness monster really exists?
  • Have you ever visited Loch Ness? Would you like to go?
  • Tell us about any stories of strange monsters that you know about from your country, in the water or on the land.



I can not believe that the Loch Ness monster exist, but it would be cool if someone prove that it really exist. I don´t know about interesting monsters histories in my country. I am from Caracas, Venezuela, and here the major monsters is the insecurity.

In my country there isn't a monster that as famous as Nessie. But sometimes on TV is reported about monster that people called "chupacabra". It lives in countryside and looks similar to something between fox and wolf. At nights chupacabra attacks domestic animals like rabbits, chickens, etc. I think that isn't very attractive for tourists.

Hello everybody....
I´ve tried to download the episode in MP3, but I cannot..... Someone can help me?

Hello Alicja,

I've checked the download and it seems to be working fine. When you right-click the 'elementary-podcast-s03-e19-low.mp3' link below the player window you should be able to choose 'Save as...' and download it. Can you let us know what happens when you try? Perhaps we'll be able to help you.

I believe that fairies and demons reside inside our souls. If we are good to people around us, to people we know, or the people we don't know, we are like an angel. But if we act devilishly then we are similar to a demon.

Hello every one,
In my country I have seen so many monsters like Scorpio, spider etc. Most of the time I got afraid to see them.
