SFR 389: Flowers For Cuban

–SFR kicks off with another taste test of a Halloween-inspired beer. This time, Dogfish Head Punkin Ale is what gets poured. Bobby rates it a solid 4 Jack-o-lanterns, and Jason does everything possible to get the taste out of his mouth.
–Celebrity ghost hunter Ryan Buell is arrested on theft-related charges. We give our reactions to the news, also talking about how his former Paranormal State colleagues (and 3306_05Ryan’s own mother) have reacted. Is it possible Ryan faked having pancreatic cancer to hide a drug problem? It is speculation that is gaining more ground as more people speak out.
–The Exorcist television series debuted on FOX, and while we haven’t seen it, we expect it probably isn’t very good. Bobby says he doesn’t care when paranormal shows become series, and that if they can make a buck, he is fine with it. Jason says he hates it when real events are given a non-skeptical paranormal treatment.
–Why do people co-opt other people’s tragedies? We talk about events like the OKC bombing in 1995 and 9/11, and how many people lie and say they knew someone killed. Bobby thinks it is all about attention, and Jason would like to talk to a psychologist to better understand their motivations.
–Speaking of things people do for attention, the topic of tattoos comes up. Bobby admits the reason he got his was for attention and so that people come up to him and ask about them. While Jason isn’t opposed to getting a tattoo himself, attention from the public is the exact reason he would choose to not get one in a noticeable spot.
–Bobby is unable to hold back from talking about the American presidential election, and launches into an impassioned speech about how close the race is, and expresses his disappointment with how many Democrats are in denial about it. Jason tells him he should be very concerned with how the debates come off, and also gets into how politics, like so much in life, is tribal, and people will give their preferred candidate a pass on things they wouldn’t give to another.  Let’s see how it all plays out!



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.
