Something different for Where Did the Road Go?, this initially aired on our music show, The Last Exit for the Lost, and this interview is for fans of Doctor Who. Seriah talks with Comedy musician Devo Spice, and we play some songs from his Doctor Who concept album, "I am the Doctor", as well as author of various Doctor Who articles and a book, Aaron Gulyas. Aaron, of course, is a frequent guest on Where Did the Road Go?
We discuss how they got interested in Doctor Who, the nature of the show, it's history, it's current incarnation, and some of the strange stories that surround it. It's a fascinating conversation if you're a fan.
We sat down with Laird Scranton and John Anthony West at John's home to talk about a whole array of things, starting with what started them on their paths of research, moving into some concepts of reality, Egypt (of course), lost civilizations, and much more. We also discuss the latest incident with Graham Hancock and Zahi Hawass, which if you missed it, Graham recaps here. Laird also drops some bombshells about his upcoming work near the end. We are very grateful to have been able to sit down with both of them, and for John's extensive hospitality. It really was an honor to be able to sit and pick their brains for a few hours. Video Version Below.
John Anthony West (born 1932 in New York) is an American author, lecturer, guide and a proponent of Sphinx water erosion hypothesis in geology.
Influenced by R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, in 1993 his work with Robert M. Schoch, a geologist and associate professor of natural science at the College of General Studies at Boston University was presented by Charlton Heston in a NBC special called “The Mystery of the Sphinx” that won West a News & Documentary Emmy Award for Best Research and a nomination for Best Documentary. The documentary contends that the main type of weathering evident on the Great Sphinx and surrounding enclosure walls could only have been caused by prolonged and extensive rainfall during the time period from 10,000 to 5000 BCE and was carved out of limestone bedrock by an ancient advanced culture (such as the Heavy Neolithic Qaraoun culture). This challenged the conventional dating of the carving of the statue circa 2500 BCE. West suggested that the Sphinx may be over twice as old as originally determined, whereas Schoch made a more conservative determination of between 5000 and 7000 BCE.
Laird Scranton is an independent software designer from Albany, New York who writes about ancient mysteries, cosmology and language. His work includes articles published in the University of Chicago's Anthropology News academic journal, in Temple University's Encyclopedia of African Religion, and in the Vassar Quarterly Magazine. His book "The Science of the Dogon" was taught at Colgate University under the title "Hidden Meanings: A Study of the Founding Symbols of Civilization." He is featured in John Anthony West's "Magical Egypt" documentary series and in Carmen Boulter's "The Pyramid Code", a series broadcast by the Documentary Channel. He has been interviewed on a variety of radio programs around the world including Coast-to-Coast AM and Red Ice Radio in Sweden. He has presented at conferences on Ancient Mysteries including Walter Cruttenden's annual CPAK (Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge) Conference, the A.R.E. Mysteries Conference, and the Paradigm Symposium.
This was a very diverse interview where we covered Michael's own experiences, concepts of the paranormal, the use of mentalism in psychic research, imaginal realms, UFO's, and much more. This is a deep conversation that we hope to continue soon...

Chad & Alta met and married in the early nineties in the city of Little Rock Arkansas. The marriage was one of destiny and as Alta would say, arranged. What they did not know is that from that moment on the couple would partake in a journey into the world of unknown and High Strangeness.
From aliens to ghosts, to a shape shifter, from meeting people who have been seen, and some unseen, this is a story for the open minded. In 1995 Chad & Alta experienced their first UFO, a massive sight in Hammond, Louisiana. This experience opened their eyes and led them to the well-known French Quarter in New Orleans where the high strangeness continued.
As they tried to take day by day to understand their place and purpose of these unusual events, they met a young lady, a co-worker named Jacqueline. Little did Jacqueline know this would be the most unusual bond of her life.
In 1997, a night that would live with them to their last breath, Chad, Alta and Jacqueline were taken from a street corner in the French Quarter. Alta calls this “the night of missing time” where the three have shared their own individual experiences. Everything from Chad’s blue being encounter, Alta’s blond female interaction, and an implant found in her arm and four digit prints. Their story will take your breath away.
The High Strangeness continued when, in 1999, Chad and Alta moved to New Mexico where Chad went face to face with a black eyed adult and other anomalous happenings. The couple moved to Denver, Colorado for their jobs, and found themselves in the middle of the infamous Columbine High School massacrewhich occurred on April 20, 1999.
In 2001 the couple found their way to Alabama where Chad works with his dad in the locomotive business. Their stay continues to bring High Strangeness into their lives. The strange encounters continued, or should we say followed them, as they discovered a sasquatch creature, ghosts, red orbs, lizard monkeys and so much more.
Chad and Alta encountered their second UFO while driving across Mississippi in 2012 and discovered that one of their family members has had a similar experience. The story gets more and more strange. How does this all play together? Well, they can’t be sure, but what they do know is that it has happened . Sit back and listen and Chad and Alta will tell you.
