Jim Harold returns to the show to talk about his latest book and tell us some ghost stories. Jim's latest collection is True Ghost Stories; Jim Harold's Campfire 3. 70 Stories in this one, of all kinds, not just ghosts.
In 2005, Jim created The Paranormal Podcast. After over a decade of working on the business side of media, Jim decided it was time to dust off his broadcast training and step back behind the mic. A life long interest in the paranormal, combined with his love of broadcasting and technology, resulted in some the most successful podcasts of their type to date. Jim has worked in radio, business to business media and has written, hosted and produced award winning video programming over the course of his career.
He holds a Master’s Degree in Applied Communication Theory and Methodology and is accredited as a Certified Digital Media Consultant by the Radio Advertising Bureau. Jim has also had the opportunity to teach at the university level.
This week's guest is Rick Waid. Rick's book is My Paranormal Journey, and we discuss the book, and where his journey has led him since.
From his webiste, www.theseerrickwaid.com, "Rick Waid is a seer, remote viewer, and past-life reader. He was born with gifts that he did not realize he had until his late-30s. While Rick’s mother was also a reader, he did not become aware of his talents until he began researching the paranormal field.
Rick Waid began to connect with the other side through electronic voice phenomena, and he started having visions and hearing his spirit guide,” Rick explained. “As his gift progressed, He learned how to remote view and was able to psychically see places he had never been to before.”
As Rick’s gifts progressed, he began to see past lives of individuals. He can also now connect with “the other side” and frequently receives messages from loved ones beyond the veil.
“He wrote My Paranormal Journey: One Man’s Obsession to share with others a compelling passion that ultimately revealed to me gifts he never knew he had,” Rick said. “I hope it will help others realize there are reasons for exploring into new territories and breaking through current boundaries.”
This week's guest is David Carr. David will be discussing the mystery of Coral Castle. He is working on a book that will encompass this subject and some others, and we briefly discuss that as well.
In David's words; While visiting Coral Castle, during the winter solstice of 2005, the intention was to investigate the entire site in search for any clues of how the building process was accomplished. The reason for the trip to Coral Castle, out of all the great sites in a reasonable distance, Edward Leedskalnin is the only person in our modern era to claim he knew how the pyramids in Egypt were built and left behind the evidence to prove it. Before the thought of visiting Coral Castle hours of online research was spent on Leedskalnin and the book he had written entitled Magnetic Current. At the time in 2005 there wasn't as much information available on the internet but whatever could be located was taken into consideration before the trip. There were quite a few theories on how he accomplished his mysterious building methods but no one has yet to actually demonstrate how it was done from beginning to end. Some have attempted on a smaller level but still to this day not one single person has accomplished the building feats on the scale of Coral Castle.
For the next two weeks we will have on the show David Paulides. Because of the length and depth of this interview, I have split it into two parts. We dig in detail into the Missing 411 Phenomenon, mysterious disappearances in and around National Parks, hear about new cases, and try to weed out what makes sense in all of this.
Also take the time to sign this petition; This petition was authored by a reader of the "Missing 411" books. It addresses one of the specific issues we discuss in the books, the lack of accountability inside the DOI when dealing with missing people on their land. Here is the exact wording in the petition:
Currently, there is no centralized registry or database of persons who have gone missing in our national parks and forests or on Bureau of Land Management lands. If search and rescue parties are unable to locate the missing, no records are required to be kept by our government about the missing person case or the circumstances surrounding the event. When remains of the missing are found, again, no records are required to be maintained.
It is time to demand that a national, publicly accessible registry/database be created in which all missing persons are accounted for in our national parks and forests and on BLM lands. The purpose of this would be to make the government accountable for keeping track of the missing, to inform the public of the facts surrounding missing persons cases on public lands, as well as keeping account of all missing individuals and the circumstances under which they went missing on public lands.
We need everyone to get behind this effort and help us get to 10,000 signatures. David Paulides is assisting the author in her efforts and will do everything possible for this issue to get the visibility it deserves.
