In this midweek podcast, we discuss what makes someone an Expert. And how that varies from one thing to another. We talk about labels and how they limit what we see, and perhaps even influence various phenomena.
In this midweek podcast, we explore what got us into researching the paranormal to begin with, some of the experiences we have had, and why we persue these subjects at all... It goes to some interesting places. Patreons also got an extra 20 minutes where we talked about some of the best Paranormal movies out there.

Joshua Cutchin and Michael M Hughes join us to continue our conversation about what constitutes evidence for the paranormal. We talk about the recent Lizard Man video, UFO's, Consciousness, Near Death Experiences, Ghosts and Ghost Hunting, multiple dimensions, Magick, The Occult, and Channeling, as well as flipping the tables and looking at the double standard present in establishment science for ideas that are accepted without proof. We delve into Electric Universe Theory, Planet X, Binary Star Systems, Placebo Effects, Peer Review, and more.
David Paulides and his son Ben join me to talk about their new Documentary, Missing 411 - The Movie. The Kickstarter for it ends on August 16th, 2015 at 9:30AM. Please Donate, or at least spread the word. This needs to be made. David and Ben talk about the progress they have made so far, as well as some strange things that have happened during early filming. I also throw in some folkloric connections at the end to get David's take on it.
We also talk about an article Patrick Harpur wrote called Landscape of Panic (I mispoke in the audio of the show and called it Panic in the Woods). If you would like to read a copy, send Patrick a polite email and ask for a copy. You can find his email address at his website; www.harpur.org/patrick.htm.
This is the audio version of our video interview with Richard Dolan and Peter Robbins, which we conducted before their appearance on Where Did the Road Go? that night. Recorded June 13th, I am uploading this audio for those of you who prefer audio files to watching the video. The video, however, is linked below.
Something different for Where Did the Road Go?, this initially aired on our music show, The Last Exit for the Lost, and this interview is for fans of Doctor Who. Seriah talks with Comedy musician Devo Spice, and we play some songs from his Doctor Who concept album, "I am the Doctor", as well as author of various Doctor Who articles and a book, Aaron Gulyas. Aaron, of course, is a frequent guest on Where Did the Road Go?
We discuss how they got interested in Doctor Who, the nature of the show, it's history, it's current incarnation, and some of the strange stories that surround it. It's a fascinating conversation if you're a fan.
We sat down with Laird Scranton and John Anthony West at John's home to talk about a whole array of things, starting with what started them on their paths of research, moving into some concepts of reality, Egypt (of course), lost civilizations, and much more. We also discuss the latest incident with Graham Hancock and Zahi Hawass, which if you missed it, Graham recaps here. Laird also drops some bombshells about his upcoming work near the end. We are very grateful to have been able to sit down with both of them, and for John's extensive hospitality. It really was an honor to be able to sit and pick their brains for a few hours. Video Version Below.
John Anthony West (born 1932 in New York) is an American author, lecturer, guide and a proponent of Sphinx water erosion hypothesis in geology.
Influenced by R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, in 1993 his work with Robert M. Schoch, a geologist and associate professor of natural science at the College of General Studies at Boston University was presented by Charlton Heston in a NBC special called “The Mystery of the Sphinx” that won West a News & Documentary Emmy Award for Best Research and a nomination for Best Documentary. The documentary contends that the main type of weathering evident on the Great Sphinx and surrounding enclosure walls could only have been caused by prolonged and extensive rainfall during the time period from 10,000 to 5000 BCE and was carved out of limestone bedrock by an ancient advanced culture (such as the Heavy Neolithic Qaraoun culture). This challenged the conventional dating of the carving of the statue circa 2500 BCE. West suggested that the Sphinx may be over twice as old as originally determined, whereas Schoch made a more conservative determination of between 5000 and 7000 BCE.
Laird Scranton is an independent software designer from Albany, New York who writes about ancient mysteries, cosmology and language. His work includes articles published in the University of Chicago's Anthropology News academic journal, in Temple University's Encyclopedia of African Religion, and in the Vassar Quarterly Magazine. His book "The Science of the Dogon" was taught at Colgate University under the title "Hidden Meanings: A Study of the Founding Symbols of Civilization." He is featured in John Anthony West's "Magical Egypt" documentary series and in Carmen Boulter's "The Pyramid Code", a series broadcast by the Documentary Channel. He has been interviewed on a variety of radio programs around the world including Coast-to-Coast AM and Red Ice Radio in Sweden. He has presented at conferences on Ancient Mysteries including Walter Cruttenden's annual CPAK (Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge) Conference, the A.R.E. Mysteries Conference, and the Paradigm Symposium.
For this mid-week podcast we welcome back Paul Kimball, and we discuss Roswell, Rendlesham Forest, and various other UFO cases. We discuss what Paul feels are the best cases and why. We also refer to his documentary, which you can watch below. I have to apologize for some of the sound quality. Paul sounds fine, but for some reason, both of my microphones have me sounding like I am talking through a tin can. No idea what happened and nothing much I could do about it.
On this edition of the Mid-Week Podcast, we talk UFO's, we explore the depths of the phenomenon, how it is treated by mainstream science and why, skepticism and debunking, the views of researchers like John Keel, Carl Jung, and Jacques Vallee, and the role of perception and communication. We then take a turn and talk about the assassination of JFK, and what Micah finds the most interesting about it. You can find Micah online at micahhanks.com, gralienreport.com, and www.middletheory.com.
In this edition of the mid-week podcast we again talk with Paul Kimball. This time we address the use of hypnosis in recalling alien abduction memories. Sparked from the case of Emma Woods hypnosis sessions with Dr. David Jacobs, we discuss the use of hypnosis, its reliability, and what it means to the UFO Phenomenon as a whole. We also discuss the reliability of memory and recall in general.
