Penny Sartori is the author of Wisdom of Near Death Experiences: How Understanding NDEs Can Help Us Live More Fully. We will discuss her work and just how important the NDE can be to those of us still here. We will also examine the evidence that this is a real experience and not the relic of a dying brain.
Penny Sartori (PhD) is a British medical researcher in the field of near-death experiences.
Sartori worked as an intensive care nurse for seventeen years, during which time she cared for many patients who were close to death. As a result of these experiences, she began researching near-death experiences, culminating in the publication of her monograph The Near-Death Experiences of Hospitalized Intensive Care Patients: A Five Year Clinical Study, which was published by the Edwin Mellen Press in 2008. Her work also gained her a PhD in 2005. She now works as a lecturer and consultant.
Nick Redfern returns to the show to talk about his latest book, Close Enounters of the Fatal Kind.
Redfern is one the world’s most sought-after speakers and media spokespersons on the science of animals whose existence has not been proven (until now) and the existence of animals considered to be extinct. He has appeared on more than 100 radio and TV programs, from the BBC to Fox News, MSNBC and National Geographic.
Monster Files lays out the persistent rumors, tales, and legends that government agencies around the world have secretly collected, and the book reveals a wide variety of hair-raising data on bizarre beasts, amazing animals, and strange creatures. No longer the subject of just folk tales and bedtime stories, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, sea serpents, psychic pets, the chupacabras, and abominable snowmen have all been sighted, documented and hidden from the public. In his inimitable, entertaining style, Redfern ferrets out this official, ultra-classified information.
Monsters, creepy creatures, and terrifying beasts really do exist––our governments know all about them––Monster Files exposes them. A regular contributor to UFO Magazine, Fate, Mysterious Universe, Nick Redfern is the author of:

Where Did the Road Go? aims to go deeper than your average fringe-aimed talk show. We ask hard questions, without being overly confrontational. We support the work of our guests. We want to bring their ideas and research to as wide an audience as possible, while also viewing it from as many directions as possible. We are not interested in wild speculation, although some speculation can be fun and constructive. We seek out the most interesting researchers and avoid the pop culture that is so overexposed today. As a result, you will hear from some people that you would not otherwise. We cover the paranormal in all its forms; Ghosts, UFO's, Bigfoot, Cryptids, Psychic Abilities, etc. We heavily explore Lost Civilizations in many directions. We talk of cataclysms and cycles of ages. We occasionally touch on religion and beliefs. We explore concepts of consciousness and reality, altered states and DMT. And once, in a great while, we may touch on something political. But not often. We believe in science. We believe that the cutting edge of science should be embraced, not ignored. We believe that new ideas should be explored, and that dogma in science is a very bad thing that restricts progress. There are things in this world that we simply do not understand. Things, that from our current perspective, may not be understood. Strange things happen to people, all the time. There are genuine unknowns out there. We want to explore them. From Black-Eyed Children to Multi-dimensional UFO's to Pole Shifts to Advanced Antediluvian Civilizations. It's important. We need to truly explore our world and know where we came from. We need to know what we may really be interacting with. We need to enlighten ourselves. If there was a lost civilization, what happened to it, and could it happen to us? If there are beings that can come and go in this world, why do they, and what might they want? It matters if things are not what they seem. In the end, we may need a whole new view of reality itself. We don't follow the path that has been tread before. We seek to be torch bearers down a new road, because so far, the roads traveled have not revealed the answers. So enjoy the show, feel free to interact, ask questions, and open your mind.
Skeptics vs Debunkers
The word skeptic is thrown around a little too easily nowadays. The majority of those that call themselves skeptics, simply are not. You may better call them closed minded skeptics, but in reality, they are debunkers. The have their mind made up, and they have an agenda to disprove that which they feel doesn't fit in with their views. A true skeptic, asks questions. A true skeptic questions everything, and is open to new ideas. Where Did the Road Go? is a skeptical show, in that it asks questions. We have no agenda, we are not seeking to prove any one thing over another, but to expand the awareness of those interested. You can decide for yourself what to believe and what to dismiss.
Where Did the Road Go? is a weekly radio show on WVBR, 93.5 FM, Ithaca, NY (which also streams online). It airs from 11pm to Midnight every Saturday night, Eastern. The show first aired on January 26, 2013. Before that, this existed, and still does, as a blog featuring interviews, theories, stories, book reviews, and more. Before that, it was a website, much of the content from which is now archived on this page.
Your regular host is Seriah Azkath. Seriah has been studying the unknown for around 30 years. His studies have spanned from the UFO Phenomenon, Ghosts, and Psychic Abilities, to Comparative Religion and the Occult, to Lost Civilizations and Alternative History, to consciousness and reality. He is very science minded, and investigates new science and alternative science as well. Seriah is a true skeptic, not a debunker.
