Where Did the Road Go?

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.


Episode 12 notes and links:

WDTRGThis 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.

The Unseen HandIn this part we talk about strange fluids, including blood, that have manifested in Poltergeist cases, as well as Firestarters, Apparitions, Gef the Mongoose, and more... Some very strange material.
