SFR 489: This Episode is Phat!

–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.
END TIMES:
–We discuss the drumbeat for war with Iran as the tensions increase.

SFR 488: Together Again

–SFR is back, and Jason is extra excited because he and Bobby hung out for the first time in months – hanging out at a Cinco de Mayo party where we enjoyed such Mexican activities as eating, drinking, and playing basketball.
–Jason got a ride home from Bobby’s dad, and we mostly discussed abortion. Which we then get into a bit here on the show, before deciding to get more in-depth on this topic in a future episode instead of right here and now.
Jason Korbus and Bobby Nelson–Facebook goes on a banning spree, terminating the accounts of people they’ve labeled dangerous – such as Alex Jones, Milo, Paul Joseph Watson, and Louis Farrakhan. We each agree Facebook has the right to do this, but also have questions.
–A Scientology cruise ship is quarantined over a case of measles onboard, and this prompts a discussion about vaccines and whether or not they should be mandatory.
–AJ asks: What is the best pro wrestling guest appearance in history? Bobby and Jason give their answers, which segues perfectly into local nutjob Opal Covey making her own pro wrestling debut this week.
–Bryce asks: What are the Strange Boys thoughts on buffets, and do they have any favorites? Neither of us truly enjoy them; Bobby mainly for health issues, and Jason for social anxiety related reasons.
–Carol asks: Are there any topics SFR will not cover? Bobby talks about why we no longer give a platform to conspiracy mongers, and Jason says he doesn’t like covering anything that doesn’t interest him or he has nothing interesting to add to.
END TIMES:
–In today’s End Times segment, Bobby brings up AG Barr being in contempt, and a bit more about Joe Biden and his currently sizable lead for the Democratic nomination.

SFR 487: It’s A Surprise!

–Don’t freak out! SFR opens with a song you’ve never heard before (and a brief history of the Toledo rap scene) but we’re still the show you love.
–Game of Thrones was too dark, Bobby says. He couldn’t see a damn thing! But in brighter news, he really liked Avengers EndGame. Jason can’t relate, since he hasn’t seen any of this stuff.
–Jason doesn’t give “two shits or a fuck” about Star Wars, but Bobby is still in the fog.
pigandwolfSFRLorraine Warren dies, and while Jason isn’t eager to dance on her grave, he can’t find his way to respecting someone who was responsible for so many lies and hoaxes.
–Church membership at an all-time low in America, with Catholics the biggest loss. Bobby speculates about people being uncomfortable with the child sex scandal, but also admits for the first time on SFR that he now sends one of his daughters to a Catholic school.
–We briefly touch on the attacks that resulted in hundreds of dead in Sri Lanka, and how Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Julian Castro each used the phrase “Easter worshippers” to refer to the massacred Christians. We think it’s peculiar.
–Next, we touch on the concept of Dark Tourism after receiving an email asking us for ideas on places to visit. Boy, do we go crazy! Bobby goes through a list of his own, and Jason is eager to talk about the kill sites of his favorite serial killers.
–Bobby went to Cleveland and accidentally found himself at the Christmas Story house!
-END TIMES: Biden finally announces his candidacy, and Bobby is all “ready, set, Joe!” Plus, William Barr and the Mueller Report has made everyone crazy. Jason has three major takeaways.

SFR 486: Into the Fog

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back in your life, and as the show kicks off, Bobby is looking for Avenger spoilers. Why in the world would he want to know what happens in a movie before he sees it? He explains.
–Much to Jason’s chagrin, Bobby can’t wait any longer to talk about the Star Wars teaser trailer. Jason explains the “Star Wars Fog,” and how once Bobby goes into it, you can’t ever fully get him out. Nevertheless, he relents and Bobby goes on and on about Star Wars. Jason really only has one question: why did so many guys tear up watching a goddamn teaser trailer?
SFR_Eye–Next, we talk about the Notre Dame fire and how, despite our objections with religion, we can’t deny how much amazing art and architecture it has inspired. Bobby talks about how seeing Notre Dame in person has been on his bucket list. Jason thinks many people only pretend to care and, besides, he has already seen and done so much via the magic of Google Maps. This segment descends into laughter.
–Since we’re winging it, Bobby brings up the story of a girl with an obsession for the Columbine massacre and how she traveled to Colorado and bought weapons, intending to create a massacre of her own. Speaking of Columbine, neither of us can believe it has been 20 years! Jason doesn’t even remember a decade of his life.
–Jason brings up the arrest of Julian Assange, and Bobby instantly says “fuck that guy,” which makes Jason want to get into it even more! Bobby gives a bit of insight as to why he hates him. Jason thinks people’s opinions of Assange are greatly influenced by whose political tribe he has hurt recently.
–Emeritus Pope Benedict released an essay of sorts, blaming the church’s child sex abuse scandal on the hippies! Okay, maybe that’s an oversimplification, but not by much!
–Jason can’t help himself. He needs to tell you a story he read about Mini Mothman!
-THE END TIMES:
Bobby saw that Trump is irritated at Fox News because they had Bernie in a town hall format on his favorite network. Jason gives respect to Bernie for bringing his ideas to the rival side, something he thinks Democrats should do more often. Bobby also gives his opinion on what the Mueller Report will or will not show upon its release Thursday morning.
–That’s all, folks!!

SFR 485: Drinking The Woo Woo

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back, and we’re making up for lost time by getting right into the Timmothy Pitzen story, whose resolution we missed the chance to cover last week.
-RECOMMENDATION: Bobby, who has been on a bit of a true crime kick as of late, has been watching “The Act” on Hulu, a dramatization of the story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard and her mother, Dee Dee. Jason prefers documentaries, and says if you’re interested in this wild story, check out the HBO documentary Mommy Dead & Dearest
–Scientists release the first images of what a black hole looks like, having photographed it in a galaxy some 50 million light years away!
–Ghost Hunters, the show that helped launch us into paranormal investigation ourselves is back…sort of. Three of the former cast members are moving to Travel Channel in a new series called Ghost Nation. Bobby vows to not watch.
-SFR MAILBAG: One of our favorite segments, this week we answer a couple of questions from the audience. First, Zach wants to know how to express his doubt to his girlfriend about ghosts, a topic of which she is very passionate, without being too pushy. Plus, Chris wants to know if Bigfoot can still be considered “woo” if the stories are as big in pop culture as they are.
–Next, we discuss the ongoing college admissions scandal, and talk about the possibilities when it comes to sentencing for Felicity Huffman who, along with a group of others, has agreed to plead guilty.
-THE END TIMES: During this round of political conversation, Bobby delves into the Barr testimony before Congress, what the coming Mueller Report will mean, and talks a bit about the candidates who are running for president,including who he thinks can beat Trump. Spoiler: He really, really hates Bernie now!  Jason brings up some of the lesser known candidates in Buttigieg and Yang, and how the idea of a Universal Basic Income is worth discussing more.
–That’s it! See you next time!

SFR 484: All Killer, No Filler

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back with a show entirely about true crime and serial killers. Jason is so excited.
–Why got us interested in true crime, and why does society seem to have a fascination with serial killers?
–Bobby heard about Adam Walsh as a youngster, and has since passed the fear on to his own kids. Jason says stranger abductions are rare, but asks if having a “spook story” to keep your kids in line outweighs the lie that there is danger at every turn?
–Beloved SFR listener Bryce asks what makes killers acceptable to be interested in, particularly when some are much more vile than others.
–Bobby is reminded of the German cannibal killer Armin Meiwes, who put out a personal ad in search of a victim, and found himself a willing participant.
Silence-of-The-Lambs–Always intriguing listener Mr. Chicago asks who the first serial killer was. While Jason thinks it is tough to know for sure, we do talk a bit about the first to obtain a large level of attention.
–Our former producer Egon wants us to talk about Lake and Ng. Jason gives a bit of their backstory, as well as a creepy chant that Ng was fond of, in case you need nightmare fuel.
–Passionate SFR listener Michael asks us to discuss modern serial killers, and we touch on a few that have captured a bit of the public’s imagination, including the possibility of one in Chicago.
–The Midnight Man himself, Tony Werewolf, asks us to talk about unsolved Delphi murders of young friends, Abby Williams and Libby German. While Bobby is frustrated at the lack of info released by authorities, Jason talks about the need to preserve the integrity of an investigation even if it irritates true crime nerds. However, there are two interesting pieces of evidence, brought to the public’s knowledge because of the girls themselves. We run quickly through a few of the major suspects.
–The Real and True O’Reilly, SFR Listener Chris, asks for our perspective on the Rhoden family massacre, where 8 members of the same family were executed in their home. The suspects arrested are all members of a family the police believe were involved in a child custody dispute with.
–We finally touch on the Mosque attacks from a few weeks ago, not so much to recap the crime itself, but to talk about how it was streamed live on the internet. Bobby makes the point that while serial killers aren’t breaking out into stardom the way that the classics did, the new wave of mass killers and spree killers are taking advantage of technology to increase their notoriety.
–Finally, at the instance of film buff AJ, we talk about our favorite serial killer movies, be they fictionalized or not. He brings up “10 To Midnight,” a Charles Bronson flick Jason now definitely wants to check out. We toss out modern day classics like Silence of the Lambs, American Psycho, and Zodiac. Jason recommends a slightly more obscure Boris Karloff flick called “Targets” that he thinks folks may enjoy.
–That’s all, folks! We hope we kept you interested and entertained. See you next time!

SFR 483: Slash and Grab

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back from another week away, this time because Bobby’s computer crashed moments before our recording was set to begin.
–New DNA analysis points the finger at Aaron Kosminski as the infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper. While certainly intriguing, there are still reasons to be skeptical.
JTR–Bobby goes over a recent “psychic reading” he received from an old guest of ours. You’ll want to hear it, even though it was a spectacular failure.
-We open the SFR mailbag, and dish a bit on what the Freqs want to get our opinions on: On tap for today, what are our thoughts on mentalism? Is Elvis still alive? And why don’t the Irish and Mexican people seem to mind cultural appropriation of their holidays so much?
–Jason quickly recommends the documentary Behind the Curve & says people should check out Sharon Hill’s review right here.
–Charges against Jussie Smollett in the hate crime hoax story have been dropped and people are angry. Jason thinks it’s the one story that has united the left and right wing.
–Bobby has been waiting days to talk about the Mueller Report/Barr Memo, and he can barely contain himself.
