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!
