    317: Satanic Panic and MK Ultra

    317: Satanic Panic and MK Ultra

    In Episode 317: Satanic Panic and MK Ultra, we have the pleasure of speaking with Matt, a member of the Quinney family. The Quinney family went through hell when their father, Melvin Quinney, was wrongfully accused and convicted of being a satanic cult leader who abused children. Matt shares with us how the events unfolded, how he and his siblings found out the truth about their father, and what they are doing now to exonerate Melvin. During our conversation, Matt also discusses his mother's mental illness, which played a part in his father being locked away for many years. As he reveals more details about his mother, the topic of MK Ultra surfaces and will leave you wondering if the Quinneys' unfortunate situation stems from an even darker origin. Matt's conversation extends over a two parts, first as a public episode (Episode 317), and also as an Overtime episode.

    315: Skinwalkers On The Reservation

    315: Skinwalkers On The Reservation

    In Episode 315: Skinwalkers On The Reservation, we are joined by Jamaal, who was raised on a Native American reservation. Jamaal has always been interested in the paranormal, and when he was in high school, he and a friend decided to investigate the paranormal as a hobby. They've searched for everything, and Jamaal has had experiences with skinwalkers, aliens, UFOs, ghost babies, shadow figures, disembodied voices, and goatman - and that's just the beginning! Episode 315 is the first of three interviews I have recorded with Jamaal, and they will all be shared over time. In this first interview, Jamaal shares with us about the skinwalker and his run-ins with the legendary entity.

    314: I Saw The Bodies (Members Trailer)

    314: I Saw The Bodies (Members Trailer)

    In Episode 314: I Saw the Bodies, we talk with Frank. He begins by telling us about a haunted home in Mexico in which he used to live. His aunt discovered a voodoo doll in a hole in the wall, and that discovery may be what contributed to the things that happened in the house. Frank also shares some possible extraterrestrial experiences, where witnesses saw some kind of explosion that left homes shaking and sent emergency vehicles into action. But his most dramatic story recounts how as an 18-year-old, Frank became a police officer, and he and his partner made a habit of shaking people down for money. One gruesome shakedown attempt left them reeling and fleeing the scene when they discovered a Mexican cartel tractor-trailer loaded with bodies.

    313: Hatman Spoke To Me

    313: Hatman Spoke To Me

    In Episode 313: Hatman Spoke To Me, we are joined by Sandra and Richard for a two-part show. First, Sandra shares her amazing experience with a Hatman. We've heard a number of Hatman stories on The Confessionals, but Sandra's Hatman does something that we haven't yet come across: it speaks to her. Following Sandra's experience, Richard tells us a unique story that is different from our usual tone on the show. Richard had been working at a certain place for quite a while before he realized that he was working with his long lost brother! He shares a heartfelt conversation of how the discovery came about, as well as what happened to his brother later on that left Richard feeling like finding his brother involved divine intervention.

    311: The Mysterious Egress Industries

    311: The Mysterious Egress Industries

    In Episode 311: The Mysterious Egress Industries, we are joined by Kyle and Steve from The Holosky Podcast (https://www.holoskypodcast.com/) . A couple of months ago I was contacted by a mutual listener, informing me about some of the crazy things that were happening on their show. Boy, they were not kidding! It all started when Steve was doing some research on Reddit for one of their upcoming shows, and stumbled across "dream flyers" that asked peculiar questions and advertised a phone number for "Egress Industries." Steve thought it could be an interesting idea for the show, and bought a burner phone to conduct their experiment. Steve and Kyle used it to contact the number on the flyer, and that’s when things began to progress out of hand! They were connected to a guy named Bob who was also experiencing bizarre happenings involving the Egress Industries’ phone number. When the three started talking, Egress immediately knew about it, and began texting their phones and the phones of some of their acquaintances - numbers they never should have had access to! Egress even started to text Kyle's co-worker, and may have possibly made an in-person visit to Kyle's wife. As the story unfolds, it became clear that just by the simple fact that Kyle and Steve were speaking with me about them, I may now be on the radar of the mysterious Egress Industries!

    309: The Predator

    309: The Predator

    In Episode 309: The Predator, we talk JR, a former member of a "1%" motorcycle club. After doing something to get himself kicked out of the club, JR started his own burglary gang. Between the club and the gang, he was in deep trouble with the law and found himself on the run, hiding out on a very remote property in southeast Indiana. Although he was given permission to stay on the property, JR was also warned that something was roaming the land... Not paying much mind to that warning, he spent nine months at the location, spending his time looking for old artifacts he could sell for cash. As time went on, JR not only found artifacts, but discovered huge finger bones and oddly placed mounds. And that's where he wishes his discoveries had ended: while out searching, JR also came across a translucent creature he can only describe as "The Predator." During his final encounter with it, he was left so terrified that he decided to head back home, where he was facing prison time, than stay one more day in the forest with The Predator!

Great podcast

My favorite podcast by far keep up the good work

noarminian ,

Yep!

Yep!

MikeBreedlove ,

Tony for the win.

Being skeptical myself in regards to government conspiracies for years, I found myself with a more open mind and realize these conspiracies are not conspiracy is there the truth. I enjoy the way Tony interviews his guests, does not interrupt and never has A condescending attitude. Everyone should be listening to the confessional‘s before the so-called conspiracies remove this show. We would lose a treasure. Thank you Tony.
