We are fun loving, skeptically minded dudes who still like talking about the paranormal, monsters, pop culture, true crime, and a variety of other weird things that weirdos like us enjoy.
Check us out on Facebook or Twitter, and subscribe to the weekly podcast and join in on the conversation.
–Within the first few minutes of SFR, we learn three things. One, Bobby has a headache. Two, Jason doesn’t get them. And three, Bobby knows a guy named Ryan who can’t vomit.
–The much ballyhooed 4th of July Trump parade has come and gone, and your preconceived political beliefs probably dictate your thoughts about it.
–Is the Jeffrey Epstein case going to take down Trump, Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, and anyone else that has any connections to him?
–This week saw the anniversary of the “Roswell Incident,” an event that will long fascinate people, be they true believers or not.
–We give a Stranger Things review, keeping it as *spoiler free* as possible. Which wasn’t that hard, really, since neither of us have finished the new season. But we do talk about Evan Rachel Wood’s comments about character Hopper’s “toxic” behavior, and how it sure seems like a lot of folks don’t like celebrities pontificating.
–We tried doing a SFR Youtube livestream last night, and boy oh boy did that fail spectacularly.
—Ariel is black in the new incarnation of the Little Mermaid, and Bobby has some insight into the racial controversy via the folks at his poker night.
–The US women won the World Cup, and are apparently not going to the White House whether they were invited or not. Jason thinks it’s bad for the country and elevates political divisiveness when a team representing their nation turns their back like this.
–The criminal case against Kevin Spacey seems to have fallen apart now that the accuser has asserted his 5th Amendment privilege against self-incrimination. Spacey’s name may be mud, and he may never again be an A-level actor, but it sure seems he will avoid prison on what Jason thought was a bogus case from the start.

–The Strange Boys are back again. Why does it always feel like we’re coming back from another week off? Pretty much because we are, huh?
–We are recording this in the early morning hours of Independence Day, why? Bobby has to watch every fireworks display in the tri-state area, apparently.
–Local man accidentally kills himself in a fireworks accident, and the devastation to his chest is mentioned ad nauseum. This brings up memories of days gone by wherein it wasn’t the 4th unless you were shooting your friends with bottle rockets or roman candles.
–A major paranormal show is back from the dead. That’s right, Ghost Hunters is back later this summer, along with a handful of other similar shows that has Jason disappointed in the A&E network. But talking about ghosts brings back memories of our last case as paranormal investigators, as how we knew we were done before we got back to the car.
–Do you have a particular historical, or celebrity ghost sighting you’re fond of? Bobby mentions the stories of Michael Jackson seen around Neverland, while Jason talks about Lincoln wandering the halls of the White House after his death.
—MUFON turns 50, and it gives us a chance to talk a bit about organizations we’ve joined just for the cool swag. However, there was another club we cut ties with when they served us terrible steaks.
–Bob Lazar is everywhere all of a sudden. On Netflix in a new documentary, and on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. The creepy part is that so many people are being influenced by him. But there was one pretty outspoken UFOlogist named Stanton Friedman who looked into his story and found it to be complete bunk.
–We open up the SFR Mailbag, and take on questions about the perfect taco, the crisis at the southern border, and whether or not belief (even in nonsense) can actually make you a more hopeful person.
–Bobby’s daughter has recently shed her belief in Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, etc. and it all pretty much happened at once.
We close the show with our take on the two-night Democratic debates from this past week.

–It’s good to be back and hearing the SFR theme again!
–We have reached the stage of life where we fall asleep easily and randomly. Sometimes during an evening of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.
–Bobby is back from Florida, and has some adventures to share. Including turbulence on planes, an encounter with Robert the Doll, and a creepy graveyard event.
–Could Bobby have found Jason another alcoholic beverage to enjoy? He recently found out about fernet, and there are plans to try it.
–Bobby found the best Key Lime pie in Florida, and Jason explains why he loves America.
–Are you ever crossing a bridge on a foggy night and kind of wish to yourself to see a werewolf cross the road? Well, we do.
–We discuss the stoic activity of premeditatio malorum, and planning for disasters.
–Oh no, more abortion talk! But it’s really about Jason’s spiritual activity of challenging his own beliefs with the goal of living a more peaceful life.
–Here’s a hobby we share: occasional cigar and pipe smoking, with a side of wine drinking.
–How to end racism? Stop obsessing over it and start making fun of it.
–Bobby says the word “gay” in a negative context, and also found out he is not allowed to say the word “interracial” as a foster parent. He has been suspended until our next episode (and yes, that’s a joke…).

–Strange Frequencies Radio kicks off with the testimony of two old men, Bobby and Jason. One of whom is always tired, while the other can’t poop. Can we retire yet?
–Bobby is heading to Florida, so SFR will be taking a break for the next two weeks while he is away.
–The recent spate of UFO stories in the press, from Pentagon programs to Navy pilot witnesses, have been overhyped and overblown. It’s no coincidence that the stories are being written by UFO nuts affiliated with what is sure to be an unscientific and hyperbolic miniseries debuting this week.
–The “Hollywood Ripper” trial is ongoing, and Ashton Kutcher has testified about the murder of his former girlfriend back in 2001.
–Regardless of what people think of Julian Assange and Wikileaks, there are good reasons to be suspicious regarding the indictments against him. Mainly because they seek to punish him, in effect, for publishing truthful information. Is this an attack of freedom of the press? We ask for your thoughts!
–Jason has issues with correcting friends online when they share bad information online, because however hard he tries to be gentle, some people still end up offended.
–A big shout out to West Coast Correspondent Lou who gave the inside scoop on Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. Bobby is absolutely ecstatic, while Jason is still confused about most everything he just heard.
-Louisiana abortion ban
-Zombie kids and tablet time

–Bobby start the show by talking about his dog. Jason jumps in, and they end up commiserating about their shared canine problems. But that leads us to talking about a story involving a woman whose “last wish” was apparently to euthanize her healthy dog so it could be with her in death, and then we are both outraged! Rawr!
–Washington becomes the first state to allow human bodies to be composted.
–Game of Thrones is over and lots of people are devastated. So much so that some may actually need therapy. (Beware: this segment includes spoilers from the last season/last episode)
–The IT: Chapter Two trailer was dropped a couple weeks back, and we were creeped out enough to want to see more. We go over the cast a bit, and we’re sure to make this theatrical experience another group outing when the movie is released.
–Jason got a jury duty summons a while back, and it turns out his service was not needed this go around. But Bobby received a questionnaire from the government about his potential to be selected as a juror in a federal trial. We also talk a bit about the potential for “professional juries.”
–Jason is in the market for a “lucky coin” or amulet, and was surprised to learn how many such objects on eBay are overtly sexual. Bobby talks a bit about something he carries with him regularly, though it isn’t for luck. We also hear from the Freqs about the objects they carry, which we thought were very cool!
–Finally, we open the SFR Mailbag and field a few questions from the loyal listeners out there. Pterodactyl Mike asks if dogs think we are other dogs, and we actually have an answer! Mr Chicago asks a variety of questions, including whether or not pets can sense impending doom (or ghosts).
–The show ends with a quick discussion about presidential candidates appearing on FOX News, and we say good for them!

–UFOlogist, amd multiple time guest of SFR, Stanton Friedman, has passed away. We share some memories of encounters we’ve had with him, do some hilariously awful impressions, and give our take on some of the skeptical world’s reaction to his death as well.
–Alabama has passed the most restrictive abortion law in the nation, and the ACLU and Planned Parenthood have vowed to sue. Will this make it to the Supreme Court? If so, what could happen? We also do a little back and forth about the arguments that “pro-life” and “pro-choice” sides make about the abortion issue.
–A quick update on our own local “prophetess” Opal Covey, who made her pro wrestling debut this past week. Jason turns Bobby on to a famous pro wrestling clip, and his reaction says it all.
–The first black faculty dean in Harvard’s history will not return to that job after the university succumbs to the mob. His “crime” according to the privileged and woke students of the most prestigious university in the country? He agreed to represent Harvey Weinstein in court. The horror! The shame! The…Sixth Amendment!
–Jason is once again flummoxed by the celebration of morbid obesity by those in the “body positivity” movement. Bobby joins him in decrying it, saying morbid obesity is not awesome or healthy.
–We discuss the drumbeat for war with Iran as the tensions increase.
