The Strange Frequencies Radio Listener Awards were created in 2009 as a fun and satirical jab at the self-importance so often seen in the paranormal community. “Organizations” like the IPAA (International Paranormal Achievement Awards) were recognizing paranormal reality television stars who didn’t need the recognition, as well as a bunch of bumbling fools who use titles like “Researcher” or “Investigator” to get the attention they obviously missed in high school. Seriously, do TAPS, or the people who use ghost boxes and call it “science,” actually need awards?
Something had to be done.
This is the 3rd time we have broadcast the Strange Frequencies Radio Listener Awards, and it is a good time every time. We use it as a platform to playfully rib our friends and longtime listeners, as well as skewer the pathetic “celebrities” so many paranormal enthusiasts model themselves after. It’s always entertaining, always irreverent, and always worth your time.
We roast our friends. We insult paranormal celebrities. And we play a lot of sound effects. In the end, a lot of names were read aloud on-air (because recognition is so important in the paranormal) and tons of fun was had by all.
Also, on this 3rd edition of the Strange Frequencies Radio “Listener Awards,” we kicked off the show by talking briefly about the recent hubbub and flapdoodle in the skeptic community when Rebecca “While Thing” Watson got all uppity and nasty when Ben “Mad Dog” Radford wrote an article about girls liking pink dolls. Because, seriously, this shit is of vital importance, y’all. Anyway, we make it no secret that we just aren’t that into Rebecca, and as smart as she is, she doesn’t do anyone any favors when she behaves this way.
