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.

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.

Beyond the Seventh Gate: Exploring Toad Road, the Seven Gates of Hell, and Other Strangeness in York, Lancaster, and Adams Counties by Timothy Renner (2016)

Beyond the Seventh Gate is a entertaining read. Not overly long, but it explores a lot in it 150ish pages. Focused South Central Pennsylvania, Timothy Renner first takes the time to dispel some of the local unban myths about a place called Toad Road, a burning insane asylum, and the Seven Gates of Hell. Then, however, he reveals a wealth of strangeness that actually has some reality to it, from reports of bigfoot and dogman, even goatman, to strange UFO sightings, weird ghost encounters, and some really, really bizarre encounters, all centered in that general area. It seems to be a bit of a cluster of weirdness. He gets into the truth behind the Hex Hollow murder, and clears the names of some innocent people that have been caught up in the urban myths. On top of that, the book has plenty of photos, and some outstanding artwork by the author.
