Scotty Roberts and John Ward join us to talk about ancient civilizations, egypt, and their upcoming Paradigm Symposium. It will be a very open format conversation and who knows where it will go.
Dr. John Ward is an archaeologist and anthropologist residing in Luxor, Egypt. Over the years, Dr. Ward has conducted numerous investigations of ancient Egyptian architecture and symbolism, while also carrying out research into the many mysteries surrounding medieval Templarism. In 2006, Ward was recruited by the Knights Templar of Britannia, which is a modern Templar order affiliated with and has been acknowledged by the Vatican. With the help of his partner, Dr. Maria Nilsson, John has managed to track the use of particular symbols through the various dynasties and the geography of ancient Egypt leading all the way into the present, with similar threads even extending into parts of Western Europe. The symbols that John and Maria have come to recognize play a very important and integral role, based from their studies, regarding ancient Egyptian life. It is through these symbols that they are driven with the passion to continue their work, which has enabled them not only to develop a greater understanding of the various cultures they study, but also to utilize and acknowledge the importance and sanctity of the symbols. These are aspects which, John argues, still remain largely unknown to mainstream academia.
Scott Alan Roberts is a man of diverse interests and a fairly eclectic background. He is Founder and Publisher of INTREPID Magazine, a monthly journal focusing on Politics, Science, Culture, Conspiracy Theories and Unexplained Phenomena. He is the Founder of the Paradigm Symposium. He is an accomplished writer, public speaker, illustrator, historian, designer, theologian and stand up philosopher. Of Scot/Welsh descent, he was raised in an agnostic Christian home, with a communistic Jewish grandfather and a Ukrainian Orthodox stepfather and was mentored by an old stonemason throughout his early teen years. He attended Bible College and entered his Masters of Divinity program in theological seminary in a very conservative, fundamentalist, evangelical Christian academic setting. He joined the United States Marine Corp and eventually entered the ministry as a youth pastor. All of this was to prep him for the next thirty years, which he spent in advertising and publishing. Scotty’s first pieces of published artwork appeared on a plethora of dust jacket and cover designs for a small, Minneapolis‐based theological book publisher in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
In and throughout his career, he has been involved in theatre and stage drama, and did a stint as a royal character at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, which lasted over fifteen years. Scotty attributes much of his stage presence and public speaking abilities to his years of interactive street theatre at the festival.
During a subsequent period of working in various ad agencies throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Scotty authored and illustrated a series of graphic novels, The Bloodlore Chronicles.
During the 1990s, Scotty owned The Uptown Marketing Group, a small advertising and marketing studio in the Minneapolis area. During this time he authored a number of newsletters and advertising campaigns, as well as servicing a list of illustration and design clientele.
Scotty is the author and illustrator of The Rollicking Adventures of Tam O’Hare (2007), an illustrated novel originally intended for 8‐14‐year‐old readers, but which found its greater readership with the college‐aged audience and older. He has also authored for New Page Books, The Rise and Fall of the Nephilm (2012) and The Secret History of the Reptilians (2013).
Scotty has written articles for TAPS ParaMagazine (the official publication of SyFy’s Ghost Hunters) and went on to become their Editor‐In‐Chief during 2009 and 2010.
He is a talented public speaker, and has been a featured lecturer with TAPS and Beyond Reality Events, as well as various other paranormal events between 2007 and 2012.
He is father to five children, and lives with his wife and family in rural Wisconsin. Being a native Minnesotan, Scotty considers himself a ‘stranger in a strange land’ filled with Green Bay Packers fans.

Edmund Marriage joins us for what is likely to be many parts of a discussion. We talk about what may have been the historical Jesus, climate change, the Annunaki, the lost civilization before the end of the last ice age, and much more...

His Golden Age Project inspired by the work of Christian and Barbara Joy O'Brien promotes the recovery of past knowledge in order to resolve many of today's problems. He believes that re-establishing high standards of training and knowledge for all important roles, forms a priority in establishing good Government and successful Social Organisation and Cohesion.
Above all, he emphasises the priority need for a clear understanding of the written parts of our brilliant British Constitution and the upholding of the Rule of Law for the People. Issues currently threatened by totalitarian politics.

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.
