–It’s episode 500 of Strange Frequencies Radio, and we can’t believe it ourselves! But we’re glad to be together in-studio once again recording this milestone moment.
–How do we celebrate such a momentous event? By drinking something Jason didn’t even know existed until a month ago, and that Bobby has grown to actually like: White Claw!
–Why stop there? Next up, we each enjoy a cognac glass of straight fernet, which Bobby says reminds him of mint toothpaste, but Jason says tastes like Robitussin. Well, hey, you only record your 500th episode once.
–Bobby wants to take some to discuss how he has changed from the start of SFR until now, and he goes from a guy who believed in God and ghosts, to a guy not so sure about ghosts, but who sends his kids to a Catholic school.
–Jason, on the other hand, likes to think he is basically the same person. Just one who has shed some paranormal beliefs.
–We play the one EVP we have never been able to explain. The one that Jason thinks is interesting, but which keeps Bobby wondering “what if?”
–Looking around our humble basement studio full of “Bobby’s Oddities” and other paranormal books and curiosities, it dawns on Jason that there’s a part of each of our 500 episodes in every item down there. That the story of Strange Frequencies Radio is on the shelves all around us. That leads us to grabbing a few items off those shelves, and telling a few stories about them. Included: an original Ouija board, a book signed by an “original ghost hunter,” and a few monstrous footprints.
–This leads us down memory lane, and talking about our time long ago filming for a self-produced documentary called SItuation: Paranormal that unfortunately never saw the light of day. One of the highlights of filming was our interactions with a person we feel was simply a self-deluded “psychic” whose so-called powers totally dissolved under scrutiny. Wait until you hear this.
–Bobby gives a quick review of the movie version of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
–We end this episode with a couple recommendations: First, Bobby recommends the Spooked podcast if you like paranormal stories, and Jason, ever the crime nut, recommends Chase Darkness With Me by Billy Jensen.
–Where do we go from here? Episode 501, of course! See you then…
