In Mission 128 we explore the more creative side of Ouija boards with author and “Ouijologist” Karen Dahlman. Dahlman says her new book, The Spirit of Creativity: Embodying Your Soul’s Passion. Was written with the help of the Ouija Board. We also see a flashback to Mission 20, and Dr. Dreck stops by to try a different type of talking board. Plus: haunted sweaters in the news? Tune in to find out!
In episode 36 we discuss kids and the paranormal with author, researcher, and talk show host Dave Schrader! What makes Dave uniquely qualified to discuss this topic? First, he was a child once himself (which is pretty scary), plus he’s the father of seven children. And if that isn’t paranormal enough for you, he’s also the co-author of The Other Side: A Teen’s Guide to Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal, he’s the host of the popular Darkness on the Edge of Town radio show that broadcasts on KTLK in Minneapolis/St. Paul, and he’s the host of Darkness Events that feature paranormal investigations at hotspots all over the United States. Are Ouija boards dangerous? Is it safe to take your kids ghost hunting? Should we let our children watch all of these paranormal shows? Tune in to find out!
Description: Ouija believe this is episode 20? In this episode we discuss the history of talking boards (better known by the brand name “Ouija”) with historian and collector Robert Murch. We explore the history of the board, Murch shows us some of the boards in his collection, and we explore how these games earned their dark reputation in the paranormal community. We also conduct a live Ouija séance with Matt and Sarah in the studio. Do we conjure up a spirit or strike out like Geraldo breaking in to Al Capone’s vault? Can they be dangerous? Tune in and find out! If the truth is out there… 30 Odd Minutes will find it… but only by sheer accident.
