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.”
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.
Peter Robbins joins us again, and this time we will get in depth to this latest book, Deliberate Deception: A Case of Disinformation in the UFO Research Community. Originally published by Phenomena Magazine as a free download on their site, I have made the whole thing available on our site, with Peter's permission. You can download it in our free book section.
Micah Hanks joins us again, along with Jeremy Lynes. Jeremy is a proponent of the more paranormal nature of Bigfoot, and has many strange stories to support his view. Micah is more grounded, and believes in a more flesh and blood type explanation. The contrast worked out well I think. They have never spoken before, but seemed to contrast their views nicely. One word of warning, the audio on Jeremy's side is a little muddy. Nothing we could do about it, but it is completely listenable. Enjoy.
We will have with us in studio this night, Melanie Zimmer, to talk about the weird history and folklore of New York State. We get into lost ruins and folklore of the Seneca Indians. We talk about the haunted locations around Upstate New York, and some of the weird stories and personalities that have contributed to the history of the region.
Melanie Zimmer has recently created the script for a legendary walking tour app of Midtown Manhattan called “Secrets of Manhattan” “Discover Midtown Manhattan and its legends; explore New York City through its tales” which is available for iPhone or Android phones through PocketGuide Inc. She is a member of the New York Folklore Society.
Edmund Marriage returns to the program for the second part of our talk about ancient times. We focus on the true history of The Garden of Eden, what it was, and where. We talk about who the Annunaki were, and what was the cataclysm that ended the Ice Age...
Edmund is the Principal of the Patrick Foundation, an Independent Researcher with a background in Business and Land Management. He qualified as a Chartered Land Agent and as an Associate of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (ARICS) at the Royal Agricultural College Cirencester and Wye College, London University. He founded British Wildlife Management in 1995 to lobby Parliament and other organisations for best practice in Countryside and Wildlife Management, specializing on Animal Welfare Science.
He lobbies on a range of key issues such as Driver Training through the Quality Driving Initiative, and includes Healing Addiction Without Drugs through neurotherapy in residential rehabilitation, leading to practical training and skills through Work Groups for Wildlife, and the provision of quality jobs. His extensive historical research has revealed a single advanced, secular benevolent source for all religions.
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 emphasizes 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.
John Ward joins us again, this time to follow up our conversation on the Occult that we started last month when he and Scotty were on. We discuss the recent Paradigm Symposium, Ghost Hunting, Occultism, Symbolism, Aleister Crowley, and more...
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. Here is the link to the EVP and Bang John was talking about - https://soundcloud.com/fern-hill-house/18-bang-to-breath. The bang is easy to hear, the breath and "welcome" are a little hard to hear, but if you listen closely, it is very clear. www.intrepidradio.com A Couple other videos from the investigation...

Roy Davies joins us to talk about his book The Darwin Conspiracy: Origins of a Scientific Crime. Did Charles Darwin really come up with the theory of evolution? Some say he stole the idea from others, but is there proof? And to what degree? Roy Davies does a fantastic job in this book of fleshing out what really happened in those days and revealing who really discovered what. It's a fascinating book, and will be an equaling fascinating conversation!
In nearly 30 years at the BBC, Roy Davies wrote, produced and directed many acclaimed documentaries for the archaeology and history series Chronicle and was for seven years Series Editor of Timewatch. He specialized in ground-breaking investigative and revisionist documentaries which challenged and re-examined popular historical beliefs among which were stories about the discovery of the tomb of Philip of Macedon and the row between Sir Arthur Evans and Professor Alan Wace over the origins of the Minoan civilization in Crete. Roy is also the author of Nautilus: Story of Man under the Sea, and was Executive Producer of the five-part BBC series of the same name which revealed the dangers of submarines since Napoleonic times and stories of the men who served in them. He was with Thor Heyerdahl when he burnt his reed boat off an island in the Red Sea in 1978, produced the programme which covered the raising of the Mary Rose off Southsea Castle in 1982 and covered the trial of O.J. Simpson for the BBC in 1995.
The book is out of print. If you want a copy of it, you can e-mail Roy directly, as he does have some copies left and he is willing to sell them at the original cost of the book. His email is TroyDavies at AOL. You can figure it out from there. If you can't, contact us and we will get you in touch. We will likely also be making the ebook available soon!
