One day, the mysteriously missing second episode may make an appearance. Until then, we'll keep plugging along pretending to count correctly! This episode attempts to introduce a "new normal" in P1's format. For this week, each of us presented a topic of our choosing. Mike introduced the elusive and perhaps mythological creature named the squonk. No, it has nothing to do with vaping. This squonk knows how miserably ugly he is, and dissolves into a pool of his own tears when captured! The legendary creature has influenced some pop culture works, and maybe even a certain hunting game played in the woods at night. UPDATE: Apparently, snipe hunts existed in the 1840's, long before the first documented mention of the squonk, so there is likely no connection there.
Josiah started a great discussion regarding the potential effect of the location of a person's passing on where a haunting takes place. This topic will certainly be revisited regularly, as it sparked ideas about the differences between spirits and ghosts, cemeteries as investigative grounds, and the transient nature of certain haunting entities.
Steve discussed a piece of equipment that he and Josiah have used themselves, the GS2 Laser Grid System. This device is not priced as an entry-level device, but it adds a laser grid to a new device that tracks motion, distance, direction, temperature, size, and shape of objects in front of it. It is starting to appear on your favorite shows, and looks to be a great piece of tech!
Although we each picked out put own items for discussion this week, moving forward random topics will be selected. These will include:
-Skeptical Views / Controversy
-Superstitions / Folklore
Hopefully we will have a better randomizing process in the future, but the table is set for the next episode! Check out this show, and please send us your feedback! We are trying to make improvements each week, and we depend on the listeners to let us know if we are on target or maybe need to make adjustments. Thanks, everyone, and we'll see you in the dark!
Episode 3 is really Episode 4, but the second audio podcast after the videos so this might actually be the fifth show...? Additionally, this is now my third blog entry despite the fact that it is the only one you see; I'm counting the witty and insightful entry from last night that I accidentally deleted. Additionally, I purposefully deleted a second post that was spiteful and full of hate. Now you and I are left with a sloppy reconstruction, and a rambling opening sentence that is a mash-up of Traveling Wilburys and Star Wars. So here we sit with take three, a fitting continuation of the chaos that, to this point, has been Paranormal 1!
In this show, we debut the new format that is not just me going on and on about whatever bypasses the filter between my creepy brain and my mouth. Now, you get to experience the pleasure of three people trying to filter out the creepy brain stuff. Abandoning my solo vision, I turned to Steve Bartel and Josiah Lee Henson to help keep me on track and requiring me to push out podcasts a bit more regularly!
If you stayed with me this far, you have way too much time and your hands, but then too you might be overly-susceptible to the power of suggestion. Hopefully, you either have already or will listen to the podcast. If you have listened already, my apologies. I promise that future shows will have less "ME! ME! ME!", and more information about paranormal topics. Since you are still reading this, I'll do the work of providing Facebook and Contact Page links. You're welcome. Additionally, once my feeble old brain figures out what Instagram is and what it does, that will be another resource to connect with us. Since I have graciously provided means to contact us, please send along any thoughts about this show or suggestions about future topics. I promise the response will be far friendlier than what you are seeing now!
