SFR 345: The Culture of Weird

–A Muslim flight attendant says she was suspended for refusing to serve alcohol to passengers.  Where are the defenders of religious freedom now?  
–Speaking to UFOlogists in 1983, Philip Klass said, “No matter how long you live, you will never know any more about UFOs than you know today.”  How right he was!  Could this sentiment be expanded to ghosts, Bigfoot, and more?
sharonhill–Recommendation:  Jason really enjoyed a book about a legendary circus freak called, “Lobster Boy” by author Fred Rosen that talks about the bizarre life and brutal death of Grady Stiles Jr.
–An “assisted-suicide” bill in California is one step from becoming law.  We discuss the positives, as well as highlight some of the arguments opponents are making.

In Hour 2, we were excited to welcome back one of our favorite people, Sharon Hill, back to the show.  Sharon, who runs Doubtful News, stopped by to discuss the goings on of media coverage as it relates to “weird news,” be that ghosts and hauntings, Bigfoot, or other anomalous and Fortean topics around the world.  We pay specific attention to how culture relates to the behavior and focus of media.  Lots to cover!

About Jason Korbus

Friend, family member, possible werewolf. I co-host Strange Frequencies Radio, blog at Confidential Korbus, and generally walk among the weird. When I'm not doing busywork, I can usually be found with my nose in a book, my eyes glued to a glowing screen, or my ears tuned to The Ramones.
