Live Calls Social Media 2020
This week on The Malliard Report Jim welcomes some of the best guests…the listeners. This week it is a live call-in show, and the range of diversity of topics discussed is about as wide as they come. Everything from when is too early to put up your Christmas Tree, to what the future of Hollywood looks like in Covid riddled world. So sit back, buckle in, and don’t feel bad for indulging in that cheesy movie that you claim you only have on for background noise, but you actually are watching, and you are wondering if the big city girl that moved to the small town will fall in love with the hunky scrooge and Christmas will be saved.
This time of year, there is a phenomenon that occurs and its origins are still a mystery. Hallmark movies. How did they grow to the popularity that they have reached? How did a few movies with a handful of B list celebrities turn into a full-scale studio and channel takeover? Unless you live under a rock in a remote location, or have not had a TV with cable for more than decade; every year from October through February The Hallmark Channel runs open throttle on a menagerie of low budget, bad writing/acting Christmas themed movies that one can’t help but watch. What is it about these movies that sucks you in? Inevitably you find yourself scoffing at the movie, then next thing you know, there you are, cheering as Christmas is saved in the most improbable way, and everyone enjoys hot cocoa.
There were several predecessors that helped blaze the social media trails, but none was as prolific as that of Myspace. It spurred a generation of bathroom selfie narcissists set on a quest to find the perfect sparkly GIF and page landing song…and there are a whole lot of us that are guilty. The Myspace revolution brough social media to the mainstream. It was a way that people were able to find old friends, connect with their favorite bands, and showcase themselves in a way that had never been done before. It was the genesis of an addiction for many, and a bane for others. Myspace saw a meteoric rise and an almost instant death, but it truly helped shape the world we know today. Tom will always be my friend.

Predictions for 2021
2020. What more can you say? Has there been any other time in history where you can simply describe an era simply by the year itself? It is safe to say that nobody saw coming what has been dealt with this year. Starting with the loss of one of basketball’s greatest legends, to the spread of a “virus” that brought the world to a complete stop, and now we stare down the barrel of the gun that is an election that is almost guaranteed to be a disaster is some form or fashion. Many look to the future with reserved optimism similar to that of an abused animal reaching out for a piece of cheese but unsure if it will receive the morsel or a smack across the head.
This week on The Malliard Report we once again reach a monumental episode. Truly a favorite for both fans and Jim himself. It once again is time for the annual prediction show for the year 2021; and what a wild card it will be. But, to make this episode that much more interesting, this year, the prediction episode just so happens to land on the same day as the US Presidential election. So buckle up boys and girls, it’s going to be a wild.
This is a great episode, and will always be a favorite that is looked forward to every year. Jim shares his thoughts on what may come, what listeners have written in, and a caller or two dusts off their crystal ball as well. It’s hard to say what 2021 holds for us, but all we really can do is sit back and wait. I mean it can’t get much worse, can it….

It is said that energy has a way of imprinting itself on buildings and objects, especially when it is of great trauma or significance. If there ever was such an American building that would hold up to this ideology, the White House is the prime candidate. Presidential deaths, worry, strife, whispers of war, and all-out tragedy; the halls resonate with nearly three centuries of palpable energy. This energy undoubtedly calls out to the spiritual realm, drawing in those that have wandered its hallowed halls. This week on The Malliard Report, Jim welcomes a writer that has captured said essence in his latest novel The Residence. On this episode, Jim is joined by Canadian author Andrew Pyper.
Originally from Stratford Ontario, Andrew Pyper is an author and the University of Toronto Law graduate that is fascinated with the strange and peculiar along with a passion for teaching. In addition to being a #1 Canadian Best Seller, “…A number of Pyper’s works have been acquired for TV or feature film. The Homecoming is being developed by eOne with Andrew acting as Co-Creator and Executive Producer. Other active projects have not yet been announced.”
Andrew is another example of a fantastic guest that truly is a fantastic storyteller. You can keep up with the latest that Andrew is working on through his website andrewpyper.com in addition to being able to purchase all of his publications and links to all of his social media.

This week on The Malliard Report we get another a two for one show featuring two fantastic guests, one that is familiar fan favorite, and a new comer with a story that will certainly stick with you. On this episode Jim welcomes George Noory and Whitley Strieber to discuss current situations, past stories, and the future potentials for radio.
First on this episode is the legendary George Noory. George needs very little introduction; but for the few that may not know: George Noory is the host of the nationally syndicated radio show Coast to Coast AM, guest on History’s Ancient Aliens, and frequent speaker. His smooth voice has guided listeners into the world of the weird for many years and will for many more to come. He can be heard just about every night on your local AM affiliate.
Second up in this fantastic lineup is author Whitley Strieber. Strieber ”… is an American writer best known for his horror novels The Wolfen and The Hunger and for Communion, a purported non-fiction account of his alleged experiences with non-human entities. He has maintained a dual career of author of fiction and advocate of paranormal concepts through his best-selling non-fiction books, his Unknown Country web site, and his Internet podcast, Dreamland. Strieber began his career as a novelist with the horror novels The Wolfen (1978) and The Hunger (1981), both of which were made into feature films, followed by the less successful horror novels Black Magic (1982) and The Night Church (1983).
Strieber then turned to speculative fiction with social conscience. Collaborating with James Kunetka, he wrote Warday (1984), about the dangers of limited nuclear warfare, and Nature's End (1986) a novel about environmental apocalypse. He independently authored Wolf of Shadows (1985), a young adult novel set in the aftermath of a nuclear war.”
While Strieber’s fictional work is fantastic, his nonfiction, personal story is even more intriguing than his fiction. “Strieber contends that he was abducted from his cabin in upstate New York on the evening of December 26, 1985 by non-human beings. He wrote about this experience and related experiences in Communion (1987), his first non-fiction book. Although the book is perceived generally as an account of alien abduction, Strieber draws no conclusions about the identity of the alleged abductors. He refers to the beings as "the visitors", a name chosen to be as neutral as possible to entertain the possibility that they are not extraterrestrials. Neurologist Steven Novella remarks that the details of Whitley's tale of waking up seemingly paralyzed fits the description of hypnagogia, a fairly common neurological phenomenon that has been mistaken by some for an intervention by demons or aliens.”
This is a fantastic episode with not one, but two HUGE guests. Make sure to check your local AM affiliate for Coast to Coast AM times and station numbers. You can find Whitley’s books on all major online retailers, and it is recommended that you give them a read.

As a parent, one of the hardest things to deal with is when our children our in pain. What is even worse is when our children are unable to tell us what and where it hurts. Be it that they are too young to speak, or just unable, nothing is more frustrating as a parent. What if there was a way that we could tell if our children were in pain, when they weren’t able to share with us? This week on The Malliard Report Jim welcomes a guest that is taking on such a challenge. Taking a leap in a direction that can certainly change the very face of pediatrics as we know it. On this episode Jim welcomes Professor Ran Goldman MD to the show. Dr. Goldman is a pediatrician/researcher/professor/published writer that is making waves in his field.
“Ran D. Goldman, MD is the Chief of the Pediatric Emergency at the BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. He is a Pediatric Emergency Physician who was trained in Pediatrics and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and was Staff physician at SickKids for 5 years until May 2007 when he moved to Vancouver. He is the Director of the Pediatric Research in Emergency Therapeutics (PRETx) research program and concentrates on education and research in the area of evidence-based therapeutics for children with acute illness. Dr. Goldman is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of British Columbia and a Senior Clinical Investigator at the BC Children’s Research Institute. Dr. Goldman had published over 100 peer-reviewed papers in the medical literature and his research includes several large epidemiological studies and trials in the areas of pain and sedation in children. He recently led the Pediatric Emergency Research of Canada network on a study of the determinants of fever in young infants.”
Dr. Goldman is certainly a trail blazer in his field and as parents, we can certainly hope for further research on his end. You can check out all of the research that Dr. Goldman has put in on his website bcchr.ca/rgoldman.

Spam replied my tweet on a completely different podcast. Would rate lower if possible. Don’t piggy back off of other tweets about podcasts, it’s gross.
