Episode 188 *FIXED* – We discuss how we met Michael Shermer, Magical thinking experiment, Anomalist Sociology, Orbs, Rods and ectoplasm with Orbdog

Episode #188 – Orbdog Kw

During our jam-packed first hour, we discuss a great many things.  First, we talk about how the show we planned to do, with James Randi and Ryan Buell, fell apart in the most spectacular way possible.  We discuss our meeting with Michael Shermer and unveil the results of Bobby’s personal magical-thinking experiment with the head of the Skeptics Society.  And we even crammed in some news about a special project we’re working on involving “Anomalist Sociology,” ie: finding, interviewing, and shadowing ghost hunters on their excursions.     Listen here: http://www.strangefrequenciesradio.net/Shows/sfr_show188_hour1.mp3

We then welcomed a fellow who, until today, we knew only as Orbdog.  Orbdog is an acquaintance of ours from Facebook who believes in the interconnectivity of orbs, rods and ectoplasm.  That basically makes him more fringe than your typical paranormalist, so we had to find out where he was coming from.  It turns out, he believes them to be conscious and intelligent beings and that they are able to communicate with us!  But how does he react to the skeptical and scientific explanations:  that orbs are mostly dust, rods are mostly insects, and ectoplasm seems to be the name given to just about any liquid, solid or gas that paranormalists can’t explain?  And how does he react to his claims not only not being taken seriously by the scientific world, but rejected by most of even the paranormal world?  Listen at:  http://www.strangefrequenciesradio.net/Shows/sfr_show188_hour2.mp3

About Bobby the Paranormal Skeptic

Bobby Nelson is a skeptic, writer, and co-host of Strange Frequencies Radio. His personal blog can be found online at www.porkrhine.com At one time, Bobby was what could be called a "true believer" in paranormal phenomenon. Having been an active investigator of the paranormal for 12 years with several different Toledo based teams, he has examined countless claims of activity. But years worth of research and investigation proved to him that the evidence for these claims are generally lacking and, furthermore, the vast majority of so-called scientific paranormal investigators were using improper methodologies which caused them to draw both false and misleading conclusions.
