Before the last show with Greg Bishop and Jeff Ritzmann, Jeff had asked Seriah about some of his experiences, realizing he had only heard bits and pieces on the show, so Seriah let Jeff and Joshua ask him about his experiences, some of which were previously covered on the episode about Kundalini, but by no means all.
Outro Music by Necronomidol, "Psychopomp" from their CD, Chaos Born available on Bandcamp!
Episode 6 tells the true story of P.T. Barnum’s Fiji Cannibals. After being taken from Fiji and exhibited in sideshows and dime museums around the United States, one of these men died in York, Pennsylvania. Newspapers reported that two other “cannibals” attempted to eat his corpse. What really happened?...and where is the Fiji Cannibal’s body? We visit Potter’s Fields, and discuss sideshows, circuses, Circassian women, and more. Our guest is Alison Renner.

I am joined by Greg Bishop and Jeff Ritzmann and we deal with a question a Pateron, Alfred Tuttle, suggested. "What is the evidence that whatever appears to be behind myriad phenomena (ufo's, sasquatch, fairies, etc) is a non-human intelligence? How do we know it is not a manifestation caused by some kind of collective human unconsciousness? What kinds of questions can we ask to determine which is the case?"
Not an easy question to deal with, we did try on another show, but I felt the viewpoints and Greg and Jeff to be well worth exploring here. Enjoy.
End music by The Beautiful Kings, "Psychonaut". Find them on Soundcloud.
