In Mission 148 the Mother Ship goes on the search for Chicago’s most famous phantom hitchhiker at this year’s Chicago Ghost Conference. Our panel guests include: Larry Arnold (spontaneous human combustion expert and author of Ablaze), Josh Gates (star of the Syfy Channel’s Destination Truth), Dave Schrader (host of Darkness Radio), Chris Fleming (from “Dead Famous,” “Ghost Hunters,” and “Ghost Adventures”), and Ursula Bielski (author, investigator, and founder of Chicago Hauntings ghost tours). Can Dr. Dreck beam an actual ghost aboard the Mother Ship? Tune in to find out!
Episode 74.5 is the lost episode of 30 Odd Minutes! Back on September 30, 2011, Jeff Belanger landed the Mother Ship in Chicago to do a live stage version of 30 Odd Minutes for the Chicago Ghost Conference. There were cameras set up to record the event from several angles, but tragically the main tape with the audio was wiped out somehow (we blame secret government organizations). Someone in the audience recorded the whole thing on their video camera and posted it to Youtube… we don’t even know who to thank (or blame, as the case may be…)… but here it is: The LOST 30 Odd Minutes. There will be more of these live shows filmed at future paranormal conferences. Stay Tuned!
In Episode 45 we talk about paranormal childhood with Ursula Bielski. Ursula is the founder of Chicago Hauntings, one of the Windy City’s most popular ghost tours. She’s an historian, the author of the Chicago Haunts book series, and she’s been investigating the unexplained for almost 20 years. She’s written for children, she’s a mom, and tonight’s she here to talk about her latest book: There’s Something Under the Bed: Children’s Experiences with the Paranormal. You’ve seen her on A&E, The Learning Channel, The History Channel, PBS, and now 30 Odd Minutes. We discuss poltergeists — especially the Tina Resch case, demons, and the Cottingley Fairies.
