We welcome Wren Collier to the show for the first time. Wren writes a blog called The Liminal Room and has some interesting ideas on how the paranormal may work. We talk about his UFO experience, his out of body experience, remote viewing, psychics, sleep paralysis, bigfoot, occult connections, Men in Black, and much more...
In this Roundtable discussion, I am joined by Red Pill Junkie, Timothy Renner, and Joshua Cutchin. We discuss what sound does to us and our environment. We discuss the beeping and buzzing that UFO witnesses describe, the Oz factor, Bi-Aural Mediation, what happens when there is complete Lack of Sound, Music's effects on us, and what ancient cultures may have known about it that we do not... This and much more...
In Episode 12 we present the story of a piece of history nearly lost; we talk about antique photography; we hear about a blind hero of the Civil War who became an amazing horse trainer; we learn the value of research; tell about a trip to the Antiques Roadshow; and talk about some interesting synchronicities…. or maybe just wondrous coincidences.
The song which closes the episode in Hymn to the Angelus II by The Forest Beggars (with Stone Breath) – words by E.A. Poe, music by Forest Beggars.

The final part in this interview with Jenny Ashford. In this part we talk about violent poltergeists and demonic possession. We talk about The Bell Witch, The Black Mausoleum, The Warrens, and much more... We also get into some possible explanations for these cases.
This show was not done with the involvement of either Steph Young or David Paulides. This is not meant to cast blame or besmirch either party, only to clear the air, using the facts and points of view of those involved. Seriah was involved in trying to smooth things over at various points, and having read all of both authors' books, had a very significant angle to view this all from.
If you are expecting this to be controversial or to attack either author, you will be disappointed.
For episode 11 we continue our talk about iron and the supernatural. This episode we focus on the blacksmith and the blacksmith’s role in folklore, magic, and as a liminal figure. We talk with author, powwow practitioner, and blacksmith, Cody Dickerson. We hear another story of a changeling and a boy taught to work iron by the faeries. Finally, we hear some traditional songs about the blacksmith.
The lady stands at her bower door Straight as a willow wand And by her came the coal blacksmith With a hammer in his hand Crying bide, lady bide, There’s nowhere you can hide. This rusty smith will be your love For all your maiden pride.
Well may you dress my lady fair All in your robes of red. Before the morn at this same time I’ll gain your maidenhead.
Away, away you coal blacksmith Would you do me wrong To think to gain my maidenhead That I have kept so long.
I’d rather I were dead and gone And buried in my grave Than a rusty stock of coal blacksmith My maidenhead should have.
The lady she held up her hand And swore upon her soul That she’d not be that blacksmith’s love For a whole chest full of gold.
The blacksmith he held up up his hand And swore upon the Mass: I’ll have you in my bed lady In a half an hour or less.
The lady she became a dove And flew up in the air And he became a cock pigeon And they flew pair and pair. She was woe, he held her so And still he bade her bide. This lusty smith her lover was For all her maiden pride.
The lady she turned into a hare And ran across the plain And he turned into a greyhound dog And chased her down again.
And she became a little mare As dark as the night was black And he became a gilt saddle And rode upon her back.
She became a silken plaid And stretched upon the bed And he became a green covering And gained her maidenhead.
And she became a corpse, A corpse all in the ground, And he became the cold grey clay And smothered her all around.
I am joined by Aaron David of Charm the Water, Adam Sayne of Conspiranormal, and Red Pill Junkie. We discuss an article on how the brain and memory do not perform like a computer and how that analogy is holding back progress. This conversation branches off into all kinds of things from that starting point, occassionally heading back around to the article. Well worth a read. Definitely inspired us.
We welcome Jenny Ashford back to the show to talk about her latest book, which is a comprehensive investigation into poltergeist accounts over the years. Called The Unseen Hand, this is a valuable piece of work, compiling some very interesting events...
