Yup, our brains hurt....Too many deep thoughts...Thanks, TIME TRAVEL PARADOXES!!  Light topics such as PREDESTINATION PARADOX v. CAUSALITY, in regards to TRAVELING THROUGH TIME.  We discuss the GRANDFATHER PARADOX, and share some "stories" of TIME TRAVEL, such as "THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT"...What is FERMI'S PARADOX and how it pertains to ALIEN LIFE visiting HUMAN LIFE...What would Michael tell his 16-year old self?  Patrick apologizes (sincerely??)...MICHIO KAKU AUDIO CLIPS, discussing QUANTUM CONSCIOUSNESS and the idea in order for something to EXIST, it must be OBSERVED...Who is the observer?  We stumble through the POLCHINSKI PARADOX. share some STAR WARS and THE MANDALORIAN love, all doused with our usual lame attempts at LEVITY...In all sincerity, we had a blast with this one.  Put on your thinking caps and strap in, we made it a bumpy road, ha! 
What do you do when you have a last-minute change of plans??  Why, you throw together an off-the-cuff HORROR HODGEPODGE, of course!  We threw against the wall whatever came to our minds and hopefully most of it stuck....A blast, for certain, but listener beware....;-)  ALIENS, BIGFOOT & GHOSTS, oh my!  
We return to our SICK AND TWISTED series, diving into the infamous ASSASSIN/HITMAN, the ICEMAN himself, RICHARD KUKLINSKI.  A BRUTAL CHILDHOOD led to the development of one of history's most NOTORIOUS MASS MURDERER...COLD, UNFEELING, a true and utter LACK OF EMPATHY....KILLING did not bother Richard...it was BUSINESS.  He'd think nothing of burning a man to death, and then return home to put together Christmas toys for his children...Too much to go into to aptly describe here, just check it out...FASCINATING and DISTURBING.  Humans can truly CREATE EVIL...
What an absolute honor it was, chatting with AUTHOR, LECTURER, OCCULT EXPERT, PSYCHIC VAMPIRE & PARANORMAL PERSONALITY, MICHELLE BELANGER (yes, I used a lot of CAPS there...deal with it)! THE DICTIONARY OF DEMONS; PSYCHIC DREAMWALKING; THE GHOST HUNTER'S SURVIVAL GUIDE; DEMONOGRAPHER; DEMONOLOGY; PARANORMAL STATE...Forms of SATANISM...METAL, GOTH, MUSICIAN, "CAT WRANGLER," and so much more! Don't miss this! Thank you, Michelle! 
Our first FORAY into the FASCINATION & FEAR of all things HORROR!  The first of our new subcategory was a devilish delight! (See what I did there?)  Getting our proverbial feet wet, for certain, with a lot wrinkles to get ironed out, but this was so much fun...Just check out the ultra-long title for a glimpse into what we've got in store....
A *SPECIAL episode, to say the least!  Talking Michael's INVESTIGATION of the SAN HAVEN SANATORIUM!  What did he find?  EVPs, anyone?  A "haunted" episode for your enjoyment! 
Our own intrepid "Mr. Show" joins in for another terribly fun episode discussing a fascinating topic...LEGENDARY SASQUATCH/BIGFOOT ENCOUNTERS...FACT OR FICTION? The story of APE CANYON; BIGFOOT ABDUCTION; ALBERT OSTMAN'S terrifying tale; BIGFOOT CARCASSES secretly removed from site of Mount St. Helens' 1980 eruption;  INTER-DIMENSIONAL BEING/ALIEN?; Who's WATCHING YOU?; GOVERNMENTAL COVER-UP?; WHY?; SKEPTICISM v. PSEUDO-SKEPTICISM; Why we're OPEN-MINDED; PATTERSON/GIMLIN; CRAZY FUNNY NEWS HEADLINES; LEVITY; MR. SHOW'S STROKE METER & MORE! 
The New Age concept of a "WALK-IN" SOUL...What is it all about?  We had a blast with this fascinating topic, w/ the usual amount of attempted lame humor thrown in...Christopher Walken had a lot to say during this recording, for instance, ha! The idea of a temporary or perhaps even permanent soul replacement, to help guide us through times of struggle and trauma, is mind-blowing if you allow yourself to open up to the possibility...TRANSIENT Walk-Ins v. GUEST Walk-Ins...SPIRIT & ALIEN POSSESSION...The CONCEPT OF NOTHING; SOKUSHINBUTSU...UNIVERSAL ENERGY...True HEROES...A NIGHT TERROR story...an update on our TALK IS JERICHO podcast and more! 
BONUS EPISODE!  GHOSTS, THE UNEXPLAINED AND WHY WE BELIEVE...PERSONAL PARANORMAL EXPERIENCES;  REINCARNATION; GHOSTS OF THE TITANIC...DO YOU FEAR DEATH? WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO SOMEONE WHO DOES? THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR "IT'S DEBBIE" EVP; GHOSTS OF THE TITANIC; DID MIKE HAVE A GHOSTLY VISION?  THE USUAL LAME HUMOR, GOOD TIMES AND MORE! 
Talking GIFTS FROM GOD & the POWER OF DEMONIC INFLUENCE...Ted Bundy referred to his urge to kill as a slowly festering pressure, an "Entity" that couldn't be ignored...Is TALENT beyond words A DIVINE GIFT? The concept of FREE WILL...REINCARNATION...WHAT ARE "WALK-INS" and "DJINN?" A DREAM VISITATION from a friend? Potential EVP recordings...What of the UFO/PENTAGON report? CROSSROADS/LEGBA/SELLING YOUR SOUL TO THE DEVIL....Baby HITLER....Attempts at HUMOR, as per usual, and MORE! 
Naysayers and non-believers throw out the term "pseudo-science" when it comes to paranormal investigations and studies...It goes both ways... "Pseudo-skepticism" is a thing, and ironically, it goes entirely against the one thing "skoff-tics" fall back on the most: science.  Firing on all cylinders for this one!  I think Mike may have popped a few blood vessels whilst recording, but that's OK...We love discussing topics we're passionate about, and the notion of immediately dismissing anything "unknown" or potentially paranormal as simple garbage without any argument or investigation gets under our proverbial skin...Rantings, ravings and the usual lame humor abound!  Don't miss this! 
We took a dive into the ever-so-happy topic of THE SPECTRE OF DEATH, AKA "THE GRIM REAPER."  ANGEL OF DEATH, or ANGEL OF MERCY?  Is it the DEVIL himself, or a PROTECTIVE GUIDE to the next dimension?  What are the ORIGINS of this HARBINGER OF DEATH/DOOM? Merely fanciful imagination created to deal with the human fear of the unknown? Simple ANTHROPOMORPHIC personification? DEATH DEITIES & PSYCHOPOMPS - What are they and what is their purpose?  Did we experience another GHOSTLY visit whilst recording?  Mike may have something to say about that...All of this and the usual banter and levity (somehow, ha!)..Don't miss this! 
What a fascinating conversation with AUTHOR/PET MEDIUM and PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR, Mr. ROB GUTRO!  Rob doesn't hold back with his opinions on WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE, the possibility of REINCARNATION or what exactly are PORTALS?  We also dive into the topic of OUIJA BOARDS and ANIMAL SPIRITS; do they transition to the same place as we do, and why?  What are Rob's thoughts about and his perfect response to naysayers and non-believers?  His thoughts on PHANTOM PHONE CALLS, why some people are more inclined to experience the PARANORMAL than others, and whether an "EVIL" GHOST was a real jerk in real life...All of this and MORE in this fun, informative and GREAT chat!  Thanks, Rob! 
There is something utterly terrifying about the Internet Urban Legend that is The Slender Man...An internet meme that has morphed into something far beyond something that simple...How?  Is it merely the power of the mind?  Or is there something else to it?  Does our collective consciousness have the power to bring a "being" to life?  Can we conjure a physical manifestation from belief and faith alone?  What would this say about the existence of God?  Or the human condition?  Is there something truly evil and Demonic about this legend?  Is the Slender Man merely our generation's interpretation of something that has always been here?  Also, who and what was "The Tall Man," or "Walking Sam?"  The "Mad Gasser of Mattoon?"  We also share some disturbing exorcism audio, just to haunt your dreams for a night or two...It converted Mike, that's for sure! Don't miss this one! 
NonSensiCast Radio returns!  Frivolity, silliness, pondering PONDERABLES and some LOCH NESS and PARANORMAL talk because hey, we can't help ourselves...We laughed, we cried, we may have peed a little, but that is to be expected at times...Hey, it's NonSensiCast Radio! 
We had a blast talking w/ CREATOR and PRODUCER of the ultra-successful "MONSTROSITY PODCAST," COMEDIAN, RADIO PERSONALITY (former regular on the HOWARD STERN SHOW) and PARANORMAL ENTHUSIAST, DAVID RACE!  This hour flew by, and we feel like we need a part two!  David discusses his own personal, terrifying BIGFOOT and UFO experiences, and shares stories of his own CELEBRITY GUEST interviews from his podcast...Loni Anderson (WKRP), Robert Carradine (Revenge of the Nerds), Catherine Bach (Dukes of Hazzard), to name a few!  Such a fun time!  DO NOT MISS THIS! 
Part 2 of THE ALIEN ABDUCTION PHENOMENON!  This episode we focus on the ABDUCTEES, themselves.  We share some HARROWING audio clips of the alleged abductees, as they recount their TERRIFYING ORDEALS under HYPNOTHERAPY...We also feature audio from the former Canadian Minister of National Defense, PAUL HELLYER, as he discusses the famed BENTWATERS UFO INCIDENT, and former NATO HEAD and ADMIRAL of the United Kingdom's ROYAL NAVY, LORD HILL NORTON, as he proclaims his belief in ALIEN VISITATIONS to Earth and the GOVERNMENTAL COVER-UP to hide the truth.  We also discuss the MEDIA MOCKERY of those who claim to have experienced the PARANORMAL, MYSTERIOUS or UNEXPLAINED and the continued CAMPAIGN of "DISINFORMATION" to shield us from what is potentially REAL.  Finally, are ALIENS evolved versions of ourselves?  If so, why are they returning?  And of course, the attempts at levity abound....Don't miss this! 
Discussing the ALIEN ABDUCTION PHENOMENON...What is behind decades of EERILY similar stories and experiences?  Is this simply a form of SLEEP PARALYSIS or NIGHT TERRORS?  A PSYCHOLOGICAL misfire of the subconscious?  Or is this LEGIT?  Are people truly being ABDUCTED BY ALIENS?  If so, WHY? We discuss the AURORA, TEXAS UFO INCIDENT of 1897, and the BETTY AND BARNEY HILL ALIEN ABDUCTION of 1961.  We also share audio clips from famed and alleged ALIEN ABDUCTEE, TRAVIS WALTON.  Are some people more susceptible to ALIEN CONTACT? We share our own "personal" UFO SIGHTING and are fairly SHOCKED to have perhaps had our own PARANORMAL SIGHTING whilst recording this very episode!  CRAZY.  The usual LEVITY abounds, albeit poorly, ha! We had a GREAT TIME with this one, so much so that it is officially going to be PART ONE of this fascinating topic...Don't miss it! 
Off the cuff discussion of a recent, potentially world-altering scientific discovery, regarding evidence of a Parallel Universe! Do scientists agree, across the board? Is the UNIVERSE a single bubble, within an OCEAN OF BUBBLES? We riff and share our thoughts regarding this potentially mind-blowing possibility, in the usual levity-based manner...How much of what is "PARANORMAL," would now be explained? Also, we share some audio clips from someone who is actually smart, our beloved Mr. Michio Kaku, as he discusses the M-Theory, Multiverses, and more...Plus, are you familiar with the Baader-Meinhoff Phenomenon?  Well, chances are you may be, now...We had a blast with this one, don't miss it! 
NIGHT TERRORS and SLEEP PARALYSIS are real, and both are horrifying.  Are they simply based in the PHYSIOLOGICAL and/or PSYCHIATRIC, or is there something more?  Something PARANORMAL?  Who or WHAT is THE NIGHT HAG?  Are these nightmarish happenings triggered by the DEMONIC? A form of GHOST OPPRESSION? Is the legend of the INCUBUS/SUCCUBUS based in reality?  What is the underlying cause of this PARASOMNIA?  A fascinating and frankly disturbing topic, with which we did our best (which may not be saying much, ha!) All jokes aside, we had a blast with this one, and of course we can't help ourselves when it comes to attempts at LEVITY and LAUGHS, to carry us through...Don't miss it! 
We had such a great time w/ "PHANTOM PHONE CALLS," we had to do a follow-up! More PHONE CALLS FROM THE DEAD, plus an alleged ALIEN INTERVIEW!  We share some CREEPY, EERIE, potentially DEMONIC & MYSTERIOUS audio of such recordings...REAL or FAKE?  Take a listen and decide for yourself!  We also discuss ALIEN HYBRIDS, our own DREAM MESSAGES, tease an upcoming "NIGHT TERRORS" episode and more!  With our usual attempt at lame LEVITY, ha!  Enjoy! 
We had a blast diving into this EERILY fascinating topic...So much so that we had to break this one down into PART ONE!  More to come!  In the meantime, we dove into some CREEPY AUDIO RECORDINGS of possible PHANTOM PHONE CALLS and a FOREBODING "ALIEN" TRANSMISSION...Or was it?!  Have SPIRITS utilized every primitive form of communication devices that man has created, for years and years, in an attempt to contact and/or guide us?  Has this become easier with the advancement of cellular tech? Has one of us experienced our own "phantom" phone call from beyond? We could have gone on forever, it seems, but luckily (for you, ha), we had to cut it short...For now!!   
What he said!!  The title says it all!  PART ONE, as we scratched just the surface of this fascinating topic!!  More to come, sooner rather than later!!  Do you believe in Fairies?  Elves? Are they one in the same?  Paranormal connection?  Legends based in reality?  Peaceful and spiritual, or harbingers of doom?  Omens? Why don't you check it out, and decide for yourself? :-) 
We take a dive into the PHENOMENON of BIGFOOT/SASQUATCH and the loaded history of SIGHTINGS/INTERACTIONS.  Reports/examples of NEWSPAPER accounts and clippings from the past...What is happening here?  Is this a MASS HALLUCINATION?  CENTURIES of reported accounts amount to?  The REAL DEAL?  Is there an ALIEN connection?  What happened on May 18th, 1980, at Mt. St. Helens, in regards to BIGFOOT?  GOVERNMENT/MILITARY involvement?  Some CREEPY alleged SASQUATCH AUDIO to ponder & our own MR. SHOW'S "stroke count."  You'll have to tune in to understand that one, ha!  All of this and more, with the usual levity, of course....
What an absolute BLAST it was discussing the PARANORMAL w/ featured star of TRAVEL CHANNEL'S hit program, "PARANORMAL CAUGHT ON CAMERA," and former investigator/cast member of SYFY CHANNEL'S "GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL," SUSAN SLAUGHTER!  My written description of Susan's eloquence and fascinating ideas/theories of all things paranormal would not do her or this conversation justice!!  Please, if you love the paranormal, do yourself a favor and LISTEN!!  :-)
