SFR 472: Hairy And Scary | Guest: Linda Godfrey

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back in your life, and we’re mystified about the story of a “vampire child” burial, where a rock is placed in their mouth. Spit it out, Vlad!
–A Salem house, which may or may not really have belonged to John Proctor, is up for sale. The joy goes out of Bobby’s eyes.
–Jason tries to rejuvenate him with a story of witches putting a “hex” on Brett Kavanaugh. But their repeated past failures to “bind” Trump lets you know how this will go.
–Bobby goes off on a quick rant about Trump and tariffs. Jason talks about the Proud Boys and their hilarious (or maybe dumb) initiation ritual.
–Jason is worried about the state of his headphones.
–The SFR fans, aka Freqs, chime in with requests for show material, and Bobby explains that “haunted houses” are not about ghosts at all, but architecture instead.
–About this time, Bobby’s kids, who are supposed to be in bed, come to the door and interrupt the show to tell us that their dog barked and they think someone is in the yard. The drama builds while we take a break to investigate…
–We’re back, and everyone is still alive. Bobby grabs a can of Pumpkin Tart by Vivant, and neither he or Jason likes it. Bobby only gives it 1/2 a Jack o Lantern rating and says it tastes like a candle, while Jason continues to try and get the bad taste out of his mouth.

In our next segment, we welcome author and werewolf investigator Linda Godfrey onto the show to discuss her life collecting stories of The Beast of Bray Road, and other strange creatures. She talks a bit about the history of werewolves, explains why the Elkhorn police once carried silver bullets, and even tells us her personal favorite werewolf movie (which makes us very happy). *Brief audio issue early*

–After the interview, we talk about some of our favorite lesser known horror movies. Bobby recommends The Gate, while Jason asks people to check out a 1974 Bob Clark film called “Deathdream” or “Dead of Night.” But there’s a bunch more recommended by the Facebook Freqs that are worthy of checking out!

SFR 471: Mostly Ghostly

–Bobby kicks off the show by playing the Ramones’ Pet Sematary, which is a perfect intro to talking about the new Pet Sematary movie trailer.
–Remember those Cottingley fairy photos we were hoping to buy, or have gifted to us? Well, they sold at auction for far more than we are worth, and though we’re checking our mailboxes, they don’t seem to be forthcoming.
–Bobby gives an update on a creepy culty religion some mutual friends followed along with years ago, and it’s a lot more disturbing than we once knew.
–This guy isn’t inspiring much confidence by saying a ghost planted meth on him.
Brown_lady–The SFR audience wanted to hear more about Jason and Bobby’s ghost hunting days, and that’s what they got! We do a q&a session from Facebook that covers our experiences at Fort Mifflin, whether any theories were too “out there” for us, and if we ever had reason to get nervous or scared on a ghost hunt. That, and much more was answered!
–From there, we get into some of our favorite ghost movies, choosing from classics like Ghostbusters and Sixth Sense, as well as others like Frighteners and House on Haunted Hill.The Freqs, as always, come through with some great selections, too!
–Now it’s paranormal story time, where first we tell some really creepy tales of personal paranormal experiences sent in by listeners. We finish with a few of our own; Jason tells the story of the time he had a run-in with his mom’s spirit mimic, while Bobby talks about an encounter with a flanneled phantom, as well as a free-floating shadow (and spooky girl’s voices) he once filmed. Thanks to the music of Dark Music World, Lucas King, and even more Dark Music World that provided the soundtrack and spooky atmosphere.

SFR 470: Werewolf October

–It’s the first show of Werewolf October!
–We asked our audience what they wanted to hear on Strange Frequencies Radio, and the results were clear. People want the woo! Well, more woo they shall get. Both today, and throughout the coming weeks culminating in our 10 year anniversary show coming at the end of November.
–Bobby’s dad saw an “alien big cat” at Swan Creek Metropark, sometime over twenty years ago. Bobby calls him up, and we hear the tale firsthand. Jason can hardly contain his excitement at the prospect of paranormal portals.
–The original Cottingley Fairies photos are going up for auction, and we both wish we owned them. Here’s to hoping they are purchased by a skeptical researcher, or perhaps donated as a gift to a couple of very appreciative podcast hosts.

–We dig through a new Pew Research study about New Age beliefs, and how both the religiously affiliated and unaffiliated tend to hold a belief in at least one.
–What kind of “super power” would you like to have? Jason seems to remember Bobby discussing this very thing on the show not long ago. We also discuss what kind of animal we would like to be, and Jason realizes he’s already a cat.
–Bobby delves into his very unique Beatles theory, explaining how the band was actually from the future, and that we wrote the songs. You know what, just listen for yourself, because it’s wild.
–Is Paul really dead?
–Night of the Living Dead premiered 50 years ago this week, and we talk about our favorite movie in the “Dead” franchise.
–Since it’s Werewolf October, we discuss some of ours and the “Freqs” favorite werewolf movies. Jason and Bobby, of course, agree on Silver Bullet.
–Bobby says there is hope of Toys R Us coming back. Could this be true? Kinda sorta maybe.
–Bobby recently learned that Faces of Death was mostly fake, and talks about an interview he heard with the director.
–At a recent rally, Trump mocks the foggy memory of Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford.
–Does Trump owe a lot of money to the IRS?
–Is Democratic enthusiasm waning? The Kavanaugh topic is charging up the base in different ways. Bobby thinks Kavanaugh comes across as too partisan by taking digs at Democrats. Jason brings up an anti-Trump quote from Ruth Bader Ginsburg to make the point that partisanship swings both ways.

SFR 469: Unwanted Advances

–Jason is back in-studio for the second week in a row. It’s always a better show when the boys are together. However, Jason can’t find his microphone’s pop filter, but Bobby found where the cat drug it just before we went on-air.
Bill Cosby is sentenced to 3-10 years in prison for his conviction of sexual assault. While it falls within the sentencing guidelines, we each wish this violent sexual predator could have gotten a tougher sentence.
–A New York firefighter says he sees ghosts, angels, aliens, and more. He also claims to have healing abilities. Seriously, as wild as it sounds, it’s actually a lot wilder than you think. Just listen.
jasonbobby–We give an update on the mysterious closing of a New Mexico observatory that we discussed last week. The FBI is now saying it had to do with a child porn investigation. Well, Bobby isn’t buying it. How very conspiratorial of him!
–Sticking with alien-related stories, cattle mutilations in Queensland have one couple blaming aliens, or maybe even robots! Wait…was it robot aliens? Or maybe even alien robots? The SFR audience isn’t sure. Still, there are good scientifically skeptical explanations for situations like this.
–A former drummer for Beyonce has accused her of “extreme witchcraft” that has targeted her finances and made sexual attacks against her. While it is possible this woman is disturbed, Jay-Z and Beyonce have each been targets of Illuminati allegations before.
–Halloween is another week closer, and again we talk about our favorite creepy movies. This time, we stick with vampire movies. What is your favorite? Because Bobby and Jason ended up agreeing.
–Next, we tackle overprotective parenting, and talk about how curmudgeonly we are each getting as we hate all over the younger generation’s favorite video games.
–Bobby shares a sad story about his 13yo dog, Bosco. Though the news isn’t good, it may have ended up better than he expected. There is hope.
–The United Nations laughs at Trump as he touts his accomplishments. Jason laughs at how he talks.
–As of the time we’re recording this, the Kavanaugh hearing has not yet happened, but by the time Bobby uploads the audio, it will have taken place. Still, we run down the sexual misconduct allegations against the Supreme Court nominee and give a few of our thoughts. Bobby thinks it is smart that so much focus is being put on Kavanaugh’s history of heavy drinking. Meanwhile, Jason struggles most with the lack of contemporaneous corroboration for the most serious accusations, and also laments how mean-spirited political discussions have become.

SFR 468: Who Do We Appreciate?

–Strange Frequencies Radio is here, and Jason is back in-studio for the first time in a month or so.
–Somehow the revelation is made that Jason once licked his cat, Wally, to get him to calm down. It didn’t work.
–That reminded Bobby of a story involving a guy who was licked by his dog, and ended up with a bacteria that caused him to need his arms, legs, and even half his nose amputated.

Don’t feed us after midnight!

–A UK mum has been terrorized for months by the creepy singing of a nursery rhyme in the middle of the night. Where was it coming from and why? The rapid response team is on the case!
–Elon Musk announces the name of the first “space tourist” who will board the SpaceX Big Falcon Rocket, and some folks are convinced he is a dead man walking.
–A solar observatory in New Mexico closed under mysterious circumstances, and there have been no clear answers forthcoming. Some, of course, jumped to an explanation involving aliens. Bobby calls Pterodactyl Mike, who has a more probable hypothesis.
–Halloween season is approaching, and while Jason and Bobby are excited to see the new Halloween movie next month, right now we’re wondering what our listeners’ go-to films for this time of year are. After reading some great picks posted on our Facebook page, Bobby talks about his love of the original Halloween, while Jason’s favorite Friday the 13th entry is Part 6: Jason Lives.
–Bobby has been watching the Supreme Court coverage, and throws a tantrum at the liberals and progressives who didn’t support Clinton, and ultimately put America is this position.
–Once he calms down, we talk about the sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh, and while Bobby ponders how far we can go into someone’s past to nail them on something, Jason asks a question right at the end of the show that causes him to reconsider.

SFR 467: How To Make Money On A Disaster

–Strange Frequencies Radio begins, and Bobby professes to miss doing the show together in-studio. Jason reaffirms his belief that Bobby is conspiring to keep him away from his house, detailing instances where the kibosh as been put on his recent attempts to come over.
–But on a more serious note: by the time this podcast is uploaded, Hurricane Florence will be hitting the Carolinas, and we give some good thoughts for the people of the area. Bobby, on the other hand, is happy to be making money off of it.
–Fall is approaching, and Bobby, being the basic bitch he is, talks about his love of all things pumpkin spice. Including shaving creams! Jason says this has gone too far, and vows to intervene.
–That said, Bobby’s weekly segment of pumpkin spice beer reviews are back! This week, he samples New Belgium’s Atomic Pumpkin, and it gets a very low rating.
goofymugs–Jason brings up the news of Alex Jones’ viewership declining in the wake of his bans from various social media platforms. Bobby thinks it’s “only temporary,” though Jason brings up Milo’s disappearing act after his pedophilia comment scandal. Still, he wonders how feasible it is to build an alternative to, say, Youtube and bring content memberships directly to their audience.
–Pope Francis is finally preparing a response to the allegations that he provided cover for a sexual abuser of children. Bobby reiterates his desire for a “Mueller-type investigation,” while Jason cynically believes that church won’t go nearly far enough in their response to this ongoing crisis.
–Throughout the show, Bobby has been stopping the recording of the show so he can attend to work issues. Here, he gives an update on what’s been happening.
–According to a new Harris poll, Taco Bell is America’s favorite Mexican restaurant. This tickles Jason, though he understands its only common sense for national chains to get more love than local spots in a national survey. Still! Later, Bobby the Foodie drops knowledge about a newer pizza chain to Jason the Fatty, who has never heard of it.
–What one paranormal/supernatural thing do we wish were true? A fun question from our friend Pastor Shingledecker results in conversations about the afterlife, Bigfoot, and even God itself.
–Jason asks Bobby if he has any political topics in mind for an End Times segment, and he really doesn’t. Though he does quickly bring up a Stormy Daniels tell-all book, and we immediately go limp.

SFR 466: Bobby, Take The Wheel!

–Jason has a text document with several stories lined up for SFR, but hands the show over to Bobby because there is ONE STORY he wanted to spend the broadcast on. But first…
–SFR’s recording almost had to be delayed this week, as Bobby’s oldest daughter spent some time in the hospital recently.
–We briefly bring up the story of the Dubai flight quarantined at JFK with multiple ill passengers. Jason breaks the news to a very surprised Bobby that none other than Vanilla Ice was onboard!
–The ONE STORY that Bobby wanted to talk about? Trump-related, of course. He starts with the upcoming book from Bob Woodward, and asks Jason if he thinks its release is being timed to do maximum damage to the president.
bobbytakethewheel–From here, Bobby moves on to the anonymous Op-Ed published by the New York TImes from a “senior official” who is, along with others, working to undermine Trump’s worst instincts to save the country.
–We speculate as to who the insider is, with the first name Bobby mentions being Kellyanne Conway. Jason mentioned that the NYT seemed to indicate it was a male, by tweeting the pronoun “he,” but Bobby thinks it may be a ruse.
–One fun “theory” floating around on the internet is that the author is none other than vice president Mike Pence. It all centers around the use of the word “lodestar” and the VPs use of it in prior speeches.
–Jason is concerned that this effort will backfire. Knowing there to be a “mole,” Trump and his most ardent supporters in the administration may now distrust, and even work to remove, any dissenting voices. That’s a bad thing for the country.
–Bobby mentions the potential of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, but Jason says those who consider it a viable option have not read the amendment carefully. At this moment, it would be more difficult than impeachment, and that’s already a tall order prior to the upcoming midterm elections.
–Finally, Bobby wants to hear thoughts on who the Democrats will run against Trump in 2020. Jason says the two strongest names that come to mind are Biden and Bernie, but the next year is likely to bring about other possibilities. Bobby wonders if Booker will be in the mix, but as of now he’s still “ridin’ with Biden.”
