High Strangeness - October 31, 2020

Recap by Patricia W - Trigger Warning: If you had the misfortune of being stalked, skip this episode. For the rest of you, read on. The best thing about a bad dream is that it ends. You may wake up shivering from cold or fright, look at the bedside clock and be comforted by the knowledge that in a few hours you will start getting ready to go to work, where you will have a new appreciation for boredom. But what if your unsettling dreams decide to cross the line, to invade your everyday world without warning? What if the creepy guy in your dream becomes the creepy guy in the passenger seat of your car? What you really will need is a Friend. In this episode Heather and Natalie relate their unsettling experiences with...what? An archetype that does not have the good manners to stay within the pages of a textbook? If there is an upside to these uncanny events, it is the friendship of these two women and their ability to laugh at what is no joke.

The Trickster and the Paranormal with George Hansen: Redux - Nov 1, 2020

This is a redux of the original interview from March 16, 2013. I am going to do this with some of the older interviews, clean them up a bit and put them up, since now they are so far back in the catalogue, many people may miss them. All shows are up on YouTube and on the website.

George Hansen is the author of an amazing piece of work entitled, The Trickster and the Paranormal. He was professionally employed in parapsychology laboratories for eight years — three at the Rhine Research Center in Durham, North Carolina, and five at Psychophysical Research Laboratories in Princeton, New Jersey. His experiments included remote viewing, card guessing, ganzfeld, electronic random number generators, séance phenomena, and ghosts. He has been active in a number of psychic, UFO, and New Age organizations, and he helped found a skeptics group.
His papers in scientific journals cover mathematical statistics, fraud and deception, the skeptics movement, conjurors in parapsychology, and exposés of hoaxes. He is a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
In this interview we discuss;

The role of deception in the paranormal.
Ghost hunting.
The scientific process as it relates to the paranormal.
The subtlety of the trickster phenomenon.
Liminality.
The effect of consciousness on the paranormal.
Skeptics and Debunkers.
The UFO Phenomenon.
And much more. The subject is so diverse and subtle that we only scratch the surface of the true strangeness of it all. You can find more about George and the book at http://www.tricksterbook.com.
