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.
–SFR is back in your ears, and recording on a new day: Sunday nights! But does that mean the old familiar tech issues would be a thing of the past? Ha! Think again, junior.
–We start off thinking out loud about the recent mass shootings that have taken place in the United States this past week, including one just a couple hours from our hometown.
–Next, a real disgusting story involving a body donation center that includes a cooler full of genitalia, a “Frankenstein monster,” and an exploding grandma.
–Kramer warned Jerry, and Alex Jones warned the rest of us. But the pigmen are coming! Okay, so it’s really just Japan approving human-animal embryo experiments, and the ethical and technical hurdles that must be overcome. Still, the prospects could be incredible if it all works out.
–Zak Bagans buys everything Jason wants! This time, it’s the LaBianca-Manson Family murder house. We talk a bit about Bagans’ Haunted Museum, and how if we were ever in the area, we might be tempted to go even though we don’t want to line his pockets any further.
–A Bigfoot “sighting” and a shooting disrupt a perfectly lovely camping trip for one couple in the Mammoth Cave National Park area of Kentucky.
Eric asks us about our favorite ghost stories. While for many that might lead to discussions of celebrities haunting their old stomping grounds, or even touching on some of the more famous ghost photos ever published, for us it leads to reminiscing about our own ghost hunting days. While we can’t say we ever actually saw a ghost, we were there when some pretty interesting things happened. Some of them funny, some frustrating, but all entertaining in their own way. And we end the show talking about a number of those experiences.

–Bobby begins the show near death, which is typical when you have kids who pass germs around. Meanwhile, Jason hasn’t been sick in at least a couple of years, and decides to recount the non-vomit streak he is so proud of.
—Rosemary Ellen Guiley, noted paranormal author and guest speaker, has passed away unexpectedly at the age of 69. Bobby is deeply hurt, not just because Rosemary was always kind to us, but because he always enjoyed her work. Jason talks about the vultures who will now claim communication from the other side with her, why it shouldn’t surprise anyone that it will happen, but how you can know for sure it is shady.
–More sequels to the Halloween franchise are on their way, with Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends coming over the next couple years to continue the story of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode. Even though neither of us cared much for the recent entry, Jason says horror fans are masochists, and we all watch the sequels regardless. Kind of like Star Wars fans, as Bobby points out.
We take on a couple questions from the audience, with O’Reilly asking about Ohio raising the legal age to buy cigarettes and vape products, while Pterodactyl Mike asks how long we will last if the power goes out? Fun questions, and we have some laughs!
–We close the show with a Stranger Things season 3 *spoiler review*. What did we like and dislike about this season, and what should be expected going into the next season? We give our opinions, and look forward to hearing yours.
–SFR is back in your ears, and while we may not be the best podcast around, we’re definitely not the worst. So that’s something, right? Right, guys? We aren’t the worst…are we?
–Huge viral story over the last week, as over 1 million people “sign up” to storm Area 51 and find the aliens this September. While we’re certain that most of these folks aren’t serious, we do wonder how many will show up, and how many of them will make a mad dash.
–A Catholic bishop, in an effort to fight crime and corruption in Colombia, plans a mass exorcism and dumping holy water down over a city. Unfortunately, he was unable to secure a helicopter, so he had to stick to flicking it from a bucket while on top of a firetruck.
–Tennessee police issue a warning not to flush drugs, because apparently you can run the risk of creating meth gators.
–Next, we talk about some of the silliest, most ridiculous cryptids we’ve had run reading about over the years. We brought up the Loveland Frogs, Melon Heads, and the Dong Wrangler of Czechoslovakia. But is any discussion of crazy cryptids complete without mention of Hobo Lobo and ol’ Three Toed Nimble Knocker from our neck of the woods?
–The trailer for IT: Chapter Two has been released, and the reviews are positive. Talk of the upcoming release has us reminiscing about our childhoods, and discussing the importance of having a classic scary movie for your generation.
–Plus, a trailer for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot hits, and while Bobby simply hated the writing, Jason thinks he may have finally gotten too old to enjoy the characters.
–We’ll be back next time with a spoiler review of Stranger Things season three.
–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
