Strange Familiars: Episode 7 - Spooklights and Headless Ghosts

StrangeFamiliars

In Episode 7 we talk about the little town of Seven Valleys and many strange reports that have come from the area – including mystery lights, bigfoot sightings, pig weirdness, and more. We hear the story of Old Man Ruby, who died the same day as his horse and was seen riding his spectral mount for nearly a century after his death. Tim and Anthony pay a midnight visit to Panther Hill in Seven Valleys – where something unseen, but very much heard, runs them off!

Liminality, High Strangeness, and Hypnosis with Jeff Ritzmann and Timothy Renner - February 25, 2017

Timothy Renner and Jeff Ritzmann

Jeff Ritzmann joins me for the first 20 minutes or so to talk about his new Blog, The Numinous Den (http://numinousden.blogspot.com/). We talk about liminality and the Paranormal, and the role of the Trickster... Then Timothy Renner joins us to follow up on his last visit and whether or not he should undergo hypnosis to recover more of his experiences. Jeff, having researched hypnosis thoroughly, gives his thoughts, and why hypnosis is not what people think it is. This conversation does continue on a Patreon only feed, as we ran out of time for the live show. 

Download

Find Timothy at www.StrangeFamiliars.com. We also end the show with a song from his band, Stone Breath, "Just Like the River" off of the album Children of Hum. Available here.
