Chronicling one man's journey in Stelle, Illinois
Ep. 55 Carole Gerardo Part 2
Carole continues her story, and I learn the definition of the term "Female Preenings".
Ep. 54 Carole Gerardo Part 1
In this milestone episode, I talk with Carole Gerardo, a Stelle resident who bravely brought to light the sexual misconduct perpetrated by Richard. This landmark event made people question who Richard was, and Stelle was going. It completely redefined the community. Before all the turmoil this revelation caused, Carole was just a regular Stelle resident, devoted to the cause. In this first episode, we learn how she acquired the TUF, the prophetic dream she had about Richard & Stelle, plus we finally learn about the reality of Richard's mysterious tattoo.
Ep. 53 T. J. Johnson Part 2
I continue my conversation with T. J., and we get into some more interesting topics, including Homopolar motors, a lesser known Richard resignation, and the Open Forum board, which operated like an analogue Craigslist!
Ep. 52 T. J. Johnson Part 1
The very enthusiastic T. J. Johnson wanted to give his perspective on Stelle, so we sat down for a great two-parter. In this first hour, we discuss how a crystal ball foretold his future in Stelle, its connection to a cone of power in WWII, and how women were the power behind the throne in heyday of Stelle. Plus we have a spirited conversation on the nature of Richard's exploits.
Ep. 51 Dr. Jerrold Heinrich
Dr. Jerrold Heinrich is a clinical psychologist who came across The Ultimate Frontier when he was still in his early teens. While he never lived in Stelle, TUF had a profound impact on his entire life. He has a fascinating story, and we cover a lot of ground including Richards thigh carving, a phone call with Richard's mom, and being the first to purchase The Ultimate Frontier!
Ep. 50 Kermit Waggoner Part 2
As I finish up my conversation with Kermit, we go into a wide range of topics, including his feelings on The Brotherhoods, Past Life Regressions, Life balancing/karma, the tragic event with Tim Wilhelm, and how he was a dead shot.
An odyssey of the mind
I stumbled on The Stelle Experience after becoming hooked on another of Daniel J. Glenn’s Glennco Productions, Fascinating Gadgets, Gizmos, and Gear Based Tecnologies. After finishing catching up on that great podcast, I exhausted the gamut of Glennco gem Fascinating Fights, and started on Fascinating Nouns and The Stelle Experience. Daniel J. Glenn, Analytical Mastermind, has unending curiosity. Daniel brings out the fascinating aspects of people I would hitherto have deemed boring. Through meticulous preparation and research on his guests, Daniel unearths “Easter egg” details that are sometimes quaint and charming but, always, wildly entertaining. I CANNOT recommend this podcast more highly! #danieljglennfangirl
Graet Podcast! I went from Rocket ships to doomsday preppers all the way to thinking about the movie "2012". "These must've been the people who had allhe paintings and valuables!". Your voice really draws you into this community. Very Relatable as well. Yours were corn fields outside of Chicago...mine were apple orchards in Washington.
