    466: What Is CERN?

    466: What Is CERN?

    In Episode 466: What Is CERN? we are joined by Dave Zed from Generation Zed Podcast. A few months ago, I was a guest on the popular show, The Union of the Unwanted, a panel discussion show. They brought me on to talk about UFOs, and that is where I met Dave. He blew me away with the knowledge he has obtained and he left me wanting to learn more. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when we had a listener ask in our Instagram comments, "What is CERN?" I knew  then that I had to do a show on CERN, because the last CERN-related episode was Episode 57! It's clearly been too long and new listeners need to be introduced to the subject. I reached out to Dave, as he seemed to be someone who might know a little about CERN, and my assumptions we correct. On Episode 466, Dave breaks down what he believes CERN to be and what its true intentions are in the world. Is it simply a harmless underground 17-mile-in-diameter particle accelerator that crosses the border of Switzerland and France? Or, is there something more to it that they are not telling us about? Is it opening portals to another dimension? Are things actually coming through these supposed portals? If the latter is true, could we possibly be living in the real-life version of Stranger Things or worse? We explore these topics in today's episode, "What Is CERN?"

    Member Preview | 465: Becoming The Hunted

    In Episode 465: Becoming The Hunted, we have two interviews in one episode! We start off with Jon, who has had different paranormal experiences but never knew how to handle them. It wasn't until he tuned into The Confessionals and heard a discussion about how to end these types of occurrences that he decided to try it and the results were interesting. Then, we bring on Patrick who shares a bizarre night he had with his friends while out in the woods. They were looking for a place to do target practice and they ended up running into a lady in white, seeing a floating window, and being hunted by a creature that looked a lot like what is commonly described as the rake.

    464: The Bigfoot, The Witch, and The Dogman

    464: The Bigfoot, The Witch, and The Dogman

    In Episode 464: The Bigfoot, The Witch, and The Dogman we are joined by Erick Szilagyi from the uNcomfortable podcast. Erick was connected to me by Joel from VanTesla, who has been a guest on Erick's show several times. Erick comes to the table with many experiences to share, but it was his experience with a witch that kicks off the show. Erick was just beginning his podcast and got connected to a witch who was willing join his show for a conversation. Erick decided to meet up with her in person to record, and that meeting turned into dinner plus more. What then ensues Erick describes as one of the most bizarre nights of his life. From Bigfoot coming close to their location, unexplainable vocalizations, unnatural hyper-sexualized tensions, to dogman guarding the witch and the witch herself physically transforming before Erick's eyes! Needless to say, he has a jaw-dropping story. Following the initial episode, we decided to do an Overtime segment for members that lasted almost three hours! Erick shares all his other experiences and they are just as bizarre as the first hour, including a story that is so personally sensitive for him that we can't speak or even hint about it publicly.

    RELOADED | 357: The E.T. Portal House

    In Episode 357: The E.T. Portal House we are joined by Teagan for this week's two-part show. Teagan wanted to share some of the experiences she and her family were having in their home. She had previously been in contact with Hector from Episode 227: Casting Out Demons and Healing the Sick, and he was able to help her family close a portal inside their house that was the source of a lot of bad things happening. Later Teagan talks about her abduction experiences and E.T. sightings that were confirmed to her by both her mom and an aunt.
