SFR 498: Full Circle

–It was a dark and stormy Sunday night, and Jason and Bobby are recording SFR through power outages aplenty. Listen as they have to reset the program multiple times.
–Ghost hunters is about to come back and Jason has set his DVR, all the while lamenting that SFR feels, in some way, as if it has come full circle.
–One show we are looking forward to, however, is the Nick Frost and Simon Pegg series Truth Seekers, a comedic send up of paranormal investigation shows. Sounds fun!
–Bobby and Jason plan to attend the Toledo Bigfoot & Paranormal conference, which is just a short walk up the street from where Bobby lives. It’s only $10, and is apparently just planned for 5 hours. Plus, we have a couple buds potentially coming in to visit!
–IT Chapter Two is coming up faster than we thought.
–The streaming wars are heating up, and how we watch television is rapidly changing.
–Neighbors aren’t always so neighborly, Jason says, while recounting times he has helped neighbors out only to to be kind of screwed over in return. Bobby tells a story about a friend who wants to rip off Nike.
–Flashback to a couple Fridays ago, as Bobby’s son Gino becomes Mr. Glass. An incredible story.
–Jason showed up at the annual pig roast, and makes an amazing escape that baffles everyone.
–The show ends with Bobby tripping balls.

SFR 497: The Ghosts We’ve Known and Loved

–SFR is back in your ears, and recording on a new day: Sunday nights! But does that mean the old familiar tech issues would be a thing of the past? Ha! Think again, junior.
–We start off thinking out loud about the recent mass shootings that have taken place in the United States this past week, including one just a couple hours from our hometown.
–Next, a real disgusting story involving a body donation center that includes a cooler full of genitalia, a “Frankenstein monster,” and an exploding grandma.
–Kramer warned Jerry, and Alex Jones warned the rest of us. But the pigmen are coming! Okay, so it’s really just Japan approving human-animal embryo experiments, and the ethical and technical hurdles that must be overcome. Still, the prospects could be incredible if it all works out.
–Zak Bagans buys everything Jason wants! This time, it’s the LaBianca-Manson Family murder house. We talk a bit about Bagans’ Haunted Museum, and how if we were ever in the area, we might be tempted to go even though we don’t want to line his pockets any further.
–A Bigfoot “sighting” and a shooting disrupt a perfectly lovely camping trip for one couple in the Mammoth Cave National Park area of Kentucky.
–SFR Mailbag
Eric asks us about our favorite ghost stories. While for many that might lead to discussions of celebrities haunting their old stomping grounds, or even touching on some of the more famous ghost photos ever published, for us it leads to reminiscing about our own ghost hunting days. While we can’t say we ever actually saw a ghost, we were there when some pretty interesting things happened. Some of them funny, some frustrating, but all entertaining in their own way. And we end the show talking about a number of those experiences.

SFR 496: The End is Near

–Bobby begins the show near death, which is typical when you have kids who pass germs around. Meanwhile, Jason hasn’t been sick in at least a couple of years, and decides to recount the non-vomit streak he is so proud of.
Rosemary Ellen Guiley, noted paranormal author and guest speaker, has passed away unexpectedly at the age of 69. Bobby is deeply hurt, not just because Rosemary was always kind to us, but because he always enjoyed her work. Jason talks about the vultures who will now claim communication from the other side with her, why it shouldn’t surprise anyone that it will happen, but how you can know for sure it is shady.
–More sequels to the Halloween franchise are on their way, with Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends coming over the next couple years to continue the story of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode. Even though neither of us cared much for the recent entry, Jason says horror fans are masochists, and we all watch the sequels regardless. Kind of like Star Wars fans, as Bobby points out.
–SFR Mailbag:
We take on a couple questions from the audience, with O’Reilly asking about Ohio raising the legal age to buy cigarettes and vape products, while Pterodactyl Mike asks how long we will last if the power goes out? Fun questions, and we have some laughs!
–We close the show with a Stranger Things season 3 *spoiler review*. What did we like and dislike about this season, and what should be expected going into the next season? We give our opinions, and look forward to hearing yours.

SFR 495: The Beginning of the End

–SFR is back in your ears, and while we may not be the best podcast around, we’re definitely not the worst. So that’s something, right? Right, guys? We aren’t the worst…are we?
–Huge viral story over the last week, as over 1 million people “sign up” to storm Area 51 and find the aliens this September. While we’re certain that most of these folks aren’t serious, we do wonder how many will show up, and how many of them will make a mad dash.
–A Catholic bishop, in an effort to fight crime and corruption in Colombia, plans a mass exorcism and dumping holy water down over a city. Unfortunately, he was unable to secure a helicopter, so he had to stick to flicking it from a bucket while on top of a firetruck.
–Tennessee police issue a warning not to flush drugs, because apparently you can run the risk of creating meth gators.
–Next, we talk about some of the silliest, most ridiculous cryptids we’ve had run reading about over the years. We brought up the Loveland Frogs, Melon Heads, and the Dong Wrangler of Czechoslovakia. But is any discussion of crazy cryptids complete without mention of Hobo Lobo and ol’ Three Toed Nimble Knocker from our neck of the woods?
–The trailer for IT: Chapter Two has been released, and the reviews are positive. Talk of the upcoming release has us reminiscing about our childhoods, and discussing the importance of having a classic scary movie for your generation.
–Plus, a trailer for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot hits, and while Bobby simply hated the writing, Jason thinks he may have finally gotten too old to enjoy the characters.
–We’ll be back next time with a spoiler review of Stranger Things season three.

SFR 494: A Veritable Smorgasbord

–Within the first few minutes of SFR, we learn three things. One, Bobby has a headache. Two, Jason doesn’t get them. And three, Bobby knows a guy named Ryan who can’t vomit.
–The much ballyhooed 4th of July Trump parade has come and gone, and your preconceived political beliefs probably dictate your thoughts about it.
–Is the Jeffrey Epstein case going to take down Trump, Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, and anyone else that has any connections to him?
–This week saw the anniversary of the “Roswell Incident,” an event that will long fascinate people, be they true believers or not.
–We give a Stranger Things review, keeping it as *spoiler free* as possible. Which wasn’t that hard, really, since neither of us have finished the new season. But we do talk about Evan Rachel Wood’s comments about character Hopper’s “toxic” behavior, and how it sure seems like a lot of folks don’t like celebrities pontificating.
–We tried doing a SFR Youtube livestream last night, and boy oh boy did that fail spectacularly.
Ariel is black in the new incarnation of the Little Mermaid, and Bobby has some insight into the racial controversy via the folks at his poker night.
–The US women won the World Cup, and are apparently not going to the White House whether they were invited or not. Jason thinks it’s bad for the country and elevates political divisiveness when a team representing their nation turns their back like this.
–The criminal case against Kevin Spacey seems to have fallen apart now that the accuser has asserted his 5th Amendment privilege against self-incrimination. Spacey’s name may be mud, and he may never again be an A-level actor, but it sure seems he will avoid prison on what Jason thought was a bogus case from the start.

SFR 493: Sometimes They Come Back

–The Strange Boys are back again. Why does it always feel like we’re coming back from another week off? Pretty much because we are, huh?
–We are recording this in the early morning hours of Independence Day, why? Bobby has to watch every fireworks display in the tri-state area, apparently.
–Local man accidentally kills himself in a fireworks accident, and the devastation to his chest is mentioned ad nauseum. This brings up memories of days gone by wherein it wasn’t the 4th unless you were shooting your friends with bottle rockets or roman candles.
–A major paranormal show is back from the dead. That’s right, Ghost Hunters is back later this summer, along with a handful of other similar shows that has Jason disappointed in the A&E network. But talking about ghosts brings back memories of our last case as paranormal investigators, as how we knew we were done before we got back to the car.
–Do you have a particular historical, or celebrity ghost sighting you’re fond of? Bobby mentions the stories of Michael Jackson seen around Neverland, while Jason talks about Lincoln wandering the halls of the White House after his death.
MUFON turns 50, and it gives us a chance to talk a bit about organizations we’ve joined just for the cool swag. However, there was another club we cut ties with when they served us terrible steaks.
–Bob Lazar is everywhere all of a sudden. On Netflix in a new documentary, and on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. The creepy part is that so many people are being influenced by him. But there was one pretty outspoken UFOlogist named Stanton Friedman who looked into his story and found it to be complete bunk.
–We open up the SFR Mailbag, and take on questions about the perfect taco, the crisis at the southern border, and whether or not belief (even in nonsense) can actually make you a more hopeful person.
–Bobby’s daughter has recently shed her belief in Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, etc. and it all pretty much happened at once.
–END TIMES:
We close the show with our take on the two-night Democratic debates from this past week.

SFR 492: Complaints and Grievances

–It’s good to be back and hearing the SFR theme again!
–We have reached the stage of life where we fall asleep easily and randomly. Sometimes during an evening of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.
–Bobby is back from Florida, and has some adventures to share. Including turbulence on planes, an encounter with Robert the Doll, and a creepy graveyard event.
–Could Bobby have found Jason another alcoholic beverage to enjoy? He recently found out about fernet, and there are plans to try it.
–Bobby found the best Key Lime pie in Florida, and Jason explains why he loves America.
–Are you ever crossing a bridge on a foggy night and kind of wish to yourself to see a werewolf cross the road? Well, we do.
–We discuss the stoic activity of premeditatio malorum, and planning for disasters.
–Oh no, more abortion talk! But it’s really about Jason’s spiritual activity of challenging his own beliefs with the goal of living a more peaceful life.
–Here’s a hobby we share: occasional cigar and pipe smoking, with a side of wine drinking.
–How to end racism? Stop obsessing over it and start making fun of it.
–Bobby says the word “gay” in a negative context, and also found out he is not allowed to say the word “interracial” as a foster parent. He has been suspended until our next episode (and yes, that’s a joke…).

SFR 491: Thanks To Seger

–Strange Frequencies Radio kicks off with the testimony of two old men, Bobby and Jason. One of whom is always tired, while the other can’t poop. Can we retire yet?
–Bobby is heading to Florida, so SFR will be taking a break for the next two weeks while he is away.
pigandwolfSFR–The recent spate of UFO stories in the press, from Pentagon programs to Navy pilot witnesses, have been overhyped and overblown. It’s no coincidence that the stories are being written by UFO nuts affiliated with what is sure to be an unscientific and hyperbolic miniseries debuting this week.
–The “Hollywood Ripper” trial is ongoing, and Ashton Kutcher has testified about the murder of his former girlfriend back in 2001.
–Regardless of what people think of Julian Assange and Wikileaks, there are good reasons to be suspicious regarding the indictments against him. Mainly because they seek to punish him, in effect, for publishing truthful information. Is this an attack of freedom of the press? We ask for your thoughts!
–Jason has issues with correcting friends online when they share bad information online, because however hard he tries to be gentle, some people still end up offended.
–A big shout out to West Coast Correspondent Lou who gave the inside scoop on Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. Bobby is absolutely ecstatic, while Jason is still confused about most everything he just heard.
END TIMES:
-Louisiana abortion ban
-Mueller speaks!
-Zombie kids and tablet time

SFR 490: Heads Or Tails

–Bobby start the show by talking about his dog. Jason jumps in, and they end up commiserating about their shared canine problems. But that leads us to talking about a story involving a woman whose “last wish” was apparently to euthanize her healthy dog so it could be with her in death, and then we are both outraged! Rawr!
–Washington becomes the first state to allow human bodies to be composted.
pigandwolfSFR–Game of Thrones is over and lots of people are devastated. So much so that some may actually need therapy. (Beware: this segment includes spoilers from the last season/last episode)
–The IT: Chapter Two trailer was dropped a couple weeks back, and we were creeped out enough to want to see more. We go over the cast a bit, and we’re sure to make this theatrical experience another group outing when the movie is released.
–Jason got a jury duty summons a while back, and it turns out his service was not needed this go around. But Bobby received a questionnaire from the government about his potential to be selected as a juror in a federal trial. We also talk a bit about the potential for “professional juries.”
–Jason is in the market for a “lucky coin” or amulet, and was surprised to learn how many such objects on eBay are overtly sexual. Bobby talks a bit about something he carries with him regularly, though it isn’t for luck. We also hear from the Freqs about the objects they carry, which we thought were very cool!
–Finally, we open the SFR Mailbag and field a few questions from the loyal listeners out there. Pterodactyl Mike asks if dogs think we are other dogs, and we actually have an answer! Mr Chicago asks a variety of questions, including whether or not pets can sense impending doom (or ghosts).
–The show ends with a quick discussion about presidential candidates appearing on FOX News, and we say good for them!

SFR 489: This Episode is Phat!

–UFOlogist, amd multiple time guest of SFR, Stanton Friedman, has passed away. We share some memories of encounters we’ve had with him, do some hilariously awful impressions, and give our take on some of the skeptical world’s reaction to his death as well.
–Alabama has passed the most restrictive abortion law in the nation, and the ACLU and Planned Parenthood have vowed to sue. Will this make it to the Supreme Court? If so, what could happen? We also do a little back and forth about the arguments that “pro-life” and “pro-choice” sides make about the abortion issue.
–A quick update on our own local “prophetess” Opal Covey, who made her pro wrestling debut this past week. Jason turns Bobby on to a famous pro wrestling clip, and his reaction says it all.
–The first black faculty dean in Harvard’s history will not return to that job after the university succumbs to the mob. His “crime” according to the privileged and woke students of the most prestigious university in the country? He agreed to represent Harvey Weinstein in court. The horror! The shame! The…Sixth Amendment!
–Jason is once again flummoxed by the celebration of morbid obesity by those in the “body positivity” movement. Bobby joins him in decrying it, saying morbid obesity is not awesome or healthy.
END TIMES:
–We discuss the drumbeat for war with Iran as the tensions increase.

SFR 488: Together Again

–SFR is back, and Jason is extra excited because he and Bobby hung out for the first time in months – hanging out at a Cinco de Mayo party where we enjoyed such Mexican activities as eating, drinking, and playing basketball.
–Jason got a ride home from Bobby’s dad, and we mostly discussed abortion. Which we then get into a bit here on the show, before deciding to get more in-depth on this topic in a future episode instead of right here and now.
Jason Korbus and Bobby Nelson–Facebook goes on a banning spree, terminating the accounts of people they’ve labeled dangerous – such as Alex Jones, Milo, Paul Joseph Watson, and Louis Farrakhan. We each agree Facebook has the right to do this, but also have questions.
–A Scientology cruise ship is quarantined over a case of measles onboard, and this prompts a discussion about vaccines and whether or not they should be mandatory.
–AJ asks: What is the best pro wrestling guest appearance in history? Bobby and Jason give their answers, which segues perfectly into local nutjob Opal Covey making her own pro wrestling debut this week.
–Bryce asks: What are the Strange Boys thoughts on buffets, and do they have any favorites? Neither of us truly enjoy them; Bobby mainly for health issues, and Jason for social anxiety related reasons.
–Carol asks: Are there any topics SFR will not cover? Bobby talks about why we no longer give a platform to conspiracy mongers, and Jason says he doesn’t like covering anything that doesn’t interest him or he has nothing interesting to add to.
END TIMES:
–In today’s End Times segment, Bobby brings up AG Barr being in contempt, and a bit more about Joe Biden and his currently sizable lead for the Democratic nomination.

SFR 487: It’s A Surprise!

–Don’t freak out! SFR opens with a song you’ve never heard before (and a brief history of the Toledo rap scene) but we’re still the show you love.
–Game of Thrones was too dark, Bobby says. He couldn’t see a damn thing! But in brighter news, he really liked Avengers EndGame. Jason can’t relate, since he hasn’t seen any of this stuff.
–Jason doesn’t give “two shits or a fuck” about Star Wars, but Bobby is still in the fog.
pigandwolfSFRLorraine Warren dies, and while Jason isn’t eager to dance on her grave, he can’t find his way to respecting someone who was responsible for so many lies and hoaxes.
–Church membership at an all-time low in America, with Catholics the biggest loss. Bobby speculates about people being uncomfortable with the child sex scandal, but also admits for the first time on SFR that he now sends one of his daughters to a Catholic school.
–We briefly touch on the attacks that resulted in hundreds of dead in Sri Lanka, and how Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Julian Castro each used the phrase “Easter worshippers” to refer to the massacred Christians. We think it’s peculiar.
–Next, we touch on the concept of Dark Tourism after receiving an email asking us for ideas on places to visit. Boy, do we go crazy! Bobby goes through a list of his own, and Jason is eager to talk about the kill sites of his favorite serial killers.
–Bobby went to Cleveland and accidentally found himself at the Christmas Story house!
-END TIMES: Biden finally announces his candidacy, and Bobby is all “ready, set, Joe!” Plus, William Barr and the Mueller Report has made everyone crazy. Jason has three major takeaways.

SFR 486: Into the Fog

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back in your life, and as the show kicks off, Bobby is looking for Avenger spoilers. Why in the world would he want to know what happens in a movie before he sees it? He explains.
–Much to Jason’s chagrin, Bobby can’t wait any longer to talk about the Star Wars teaser trailer. Jason explains the “Star Wars Fog,” and how once Bobby goes into it, you can’t ever fully get him out. Nevertheless, he relents and Bobby goes on and on about Star Wars. Jason really only has one question: why did so many guys tear up watching a goddamn teaser trailer?
SFR_Eye–Next, we talk about the Notre Dame fire and how, despite our objections with religion, we can’t deny how much amazing art and architecture it has inspired. Bobby talks about how seeing Notre Dame in person has been on his bucket list. Jason thinks many people only pretend to care and, besides, he has already seen and done so much via the magic of Google Maps. This segment descends into laughter.
–Since we’re winging it, Bobby brings up the story of a girl with an obsession for the Columbine massacre and how she traveled to Colorado and bought weapons, intending to create a massacre of her own. Speaking of Columbine, neither of us can believe it has been 20 years! Jason doesn’t even remember a decade of his life.
–Jason brings up the arrest of Julian Assange, and Bobby instantly says “fuck that guy,” which makes Jason want to get into it even more! Bobby gives a bit of insight as to why he hates him. Jason thinks people’s opinions of Assange are greatly influenced by whose political tribe he has hurt recently.
–Emeritus Pope Benedict released an essay of sorts, blaming the church’s child sex abuse scandal on the hippies! Okay, maybe that’s an oversimplification, but not by much!
–Jason can’t help himself. He needs to tell you a story he read about Mini Mothman!
-THE END TIMES:
Bobby saw that Trump is irritated at Fox News because they had Bernie in a town hall format on his favorite network. Jason gives respect to Bernie for bringing his ideas to the rival side, something he thinks Democrats should do more often. Bobby also gives his opinion on what the Mueller Report will or will not show upon its release Thursday morning.
–That’s all, folks!!

SFR 485: Drinking The Woo Woo

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back, and we’re making up for lost time by getting right into the Timmothy Pitzen story, whose resolution we missed the chance to cover last week.
-RECOMMENDATION: Bobby, who has been on a bit of a true crime kick as of late, has been watching “The Act” on Hulu, a dramatization of the story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard and her mother, Dee Dee. Jason prefers documentaries, and says if you’re interested in this wild story, check out the HBO documentary Mommy Dead & Dearest
–Scientists release the first images of what a black hole looks like, having photographed it in a galaxy some 50 million light years away!
–Ghost Hunters, the show that helped launch us into paranormal investigation ourselves is back…sort of. Three of the former cast members are moving to Travel Channel in a new series called Ghost Nation. Bobby vows to not watch.
-SFR MAILBAG: One of our favorite segments, this week we answer a couple of questions from the audience. First, Zach wants to know how to express his doubt to his girlfriend about ghosts, a topic of which she is very passionate, without being too pushy. Plus, Chris wants to know if Bigfoot can still be considered “woo” if the stories are as big in pop culture as they are.
–Next, we discuss the ongoing college admissions scandal, and talk about the possibilities when it comes to sentencing for Felicity Huffman who, along with a group of others, has agreed to plead guilty.
-THE END TIMES: During this round of political conversation, Bobby delves into the Barr testimony before Congress, what the coming Mueller Report will mean, and talks a bit about the candidates who are running for president,including who he thinks can beat Trump. Spoiler: He really, really hates Bernie now!  Jason brings up some of the lesser known candidates in Buttigieg and Yang, and how the idea of a Universal Basic Income is worth discussing more.
–That’s it! See you next time!

SFR 484: All Killer, No Filler

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back with a show entirely about true crime and serial killers. Jason is so excited.
–Why got us interested in true crime, and why does society seem to have a fascination with serial killers?
–Bobby heard about Adam Walsh as a youngster, and has since passed the fear on to his own kids. Jason says stranger abductions are rare, but asks if having a “spook story” to keep your kids in line outweighs the lie that there is danger at every turn?
–Beloved SFR listener Bryce asks what makes killers acceptable to be interested in, particularly when some are much more vile than others.
–Bobby is reminded of the German cannibal killer Armin Meiwes, who put out a personal ad in search of a victim, and found himself a willing participant.
Silence-of-The-Lambs–Always intriguing listener Mr. Chicago asks who the first serial killer was. While Jason thinks it is tough to know for sure, we do talk a bit about the first to obtain a large level of attention.
–Our former producer Egon wants us to talk about Lake and Ng. Jason gives a bit of their backstory, as well as a creepy chant that Ng was fond of, in case you need nightmare fuel.
–Passionate SFR listener Michael asks us to discuss modern serial killers, and we touch on a few that have captured a bit of the public’s imagination, including the possibility of one in Chicago.
–The Midnight Man himself, Tony Werewolf, asks us to talk about unsolved Delphi murders of young friends, Abby Williams and Libby German. While Bobby is frustrated at the lack of info released by authorities, Jason talks about the need to preserve the integrity of an investigation even if it irritates true crime nerds. However, there are two interesting pieces of evidence, brought to the public’s knowledge because of the girls themselves. We run quickly through a few of the major suspects.
–The Real and True O’Reilly, SFR Listener Chris, asks for our perspective on the Rhoden family massacre, where 8 members of the same family were executed in their home. The suspects arrested are all members of a family the police believe were involved in a child custody dispute with.
–We finally touch on the Mosque attacks from a few weeks ago, not so much to recap the crime itself, but to talk about how it was streamed live on the internet. Bobby makes the point that while serial killers aren’t breaking out into stardom the way that the classics did, the new wave of mass killers and spree killers are taking advantage of technology to increase their notoriety.
–Finally, at the instance of film buff AJ, we talk about our favorite serial killer movies, be they fictionalized or not. He brings up “10 To Midnight,” a Charles Bronson flick Jason now definitely wants to check out. We toss out modern day classics like Silence of the Lambs, American Psycho, and Zodiac. Jason recommends a slightly more obscure Boris Karloff flick called “Targets” that he thinks folks may enjoy.
–That’s all, folks! We hope we kept you interested and entertained. See you next time!

SFR 483: Slash and Grab

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back from another week away, this time because Bobby’s computer crashed moments before our recording was set to begin.
–New DNA analysis points the finger at Aaron Kosminski as the infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper. While certainly intriguing, there are still reasons to be skeptical.
JTR–Bobby goes over a recent “psychic reading” he received from an old guest of ours. You’ll want to hear it, even though it was a spectacular failure.
-We open the SFR mailbag, and dish a bit on what the Freqs want to get our opinions on: On tap for today, what are our thoughts on mentalism? Is Elvis still alive? And why don’t the Irish and Mexican people seem to mind cultural appropriation of their holidays so much?
–Jason quickly recommends the documentary Behind the Curve & says people should check out Sharon Hill’s review right here.
–Charges against Jussie Smollett in the hate crime hoax story have been dropped and people are angry. Jason thinks it’s the one story that has united the left and right wing.
–Bobby has been waiting days to talk about the Mueller Report/Barr Memo, and he can barely contain himself.

SFR 482: The Great American Breakfast

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back, but recording a little later in the evening than normal. Why? Bobby is late, drunk, and needs support. Plus he really wants to know what Tic Toc is.
–Jason is told that he has a sinister sense of humor. He approves of this.
–Bobby’s back on the burger issue.
pigandwolfSFR–What, in your opinion, is “The Great American Breakfast”? We have some thoughts, but we also want to hear from you. If you’re outside of the United States, what is your country’s great breakfast?
–Jason combines Bobby’s questions and asks if a fried egg ever belongs on a burger.
–The Freqs love it when we talk woo. Well, the “Fake Melania” conspiracy is back, and we almost sort of totally believe it!
–The celebrity college cheating scandal is all over the news, and we have so many questions and concerns about it all.
–We open up the SFR Mailbag and answer questions. First, Tony wants to know why paranormal investigation is mostly done by white people, and why there are so few ethnic investigators.
–Bryce asks if skepticism is like religion in that it provides meaning, and if so, why is one any better than the other?
–The Strange Boys dish on the current political landscape.

SFR 481: Perchance To Dream

–Strange Frequencies Radio is underway and, what? No announcements? Jason is too happy because he has finally gone mobile, just now realizing after nearly a decade that his iPhone earbuds have a built-in microphone. He’s hands-free like the rest of the world.
–Bobby is cooking for himself and the kids at home recently, and this leads us to those infuriating philosophical debates, such as: what is a sandwich? Is cereal a soup? But it also ends up with us talking about the perfect burger.
–We discuss competitive eating, and talk about our favorites. Like Youtube star Randy Santel, and Jason’s personal favorite chugger, also on Youtube, Badlands Booker.
SFR_Eye–Have you ever had a peanut butter bacon burger?
–Now, as if Jiffy on a burger isn’t weird enough, what’s happening in the world of the weird? Well, our listeners told us some stories involving dreams they’ve had that have come true, and other weird deja vu type of moments. Bobby shares a couple of his own from his family. But Jason doesn’t often remember his dreams, so can’t add much.
–We learn that Alex Trebek has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. As the saying goes, there is no stage 5. Have people beat it before? Yes. But it’s rare, and we wish Mr. Trebek all the best in what will truly be the fight of his life.
–Jason solved an unsolved mystery! Well, kind of. In his recent rewatching of old Unsolved Mysteries episodes, he came across an old favorite involving a story called the Circleville Writer. With a little bit of googling, he has an (obvious) suspect.
–Bobby and Jason have been to West Virginia about 6 or 7 times for the Mothman Festival. Will they travel back to the state again someday for the Flatwoods Monster museum? It’s possible..
–What do the Freqs want us to talk about on the show? A variety of things, as usual, from Bigfoot erotica (as usual) to a documentary on Netflix about Flat Earthers called Behind the Curve. Well, we haven’t seen it, but since a few people have mentioned it to Jason, he’s going to check it out. Bobby says he is not interested.
–As promised, we delve into the topic of toxic masculinity. Jason was surprised to find out Bobby isn’t too keen on the label, because neither is he. It seems we just kind of feel like masculinity, like femininity, are necessary in the world because they create balance. And just like there is no such thing as toxic femininity, or toxic blackness, there is no such thing as toxic masculinity. Instead, there are just bad people doing bad things, and it has nothing to do with with their gender, color, or otherwise.
–Also as promised, we finally get a chance to delve back into fake hate crime reports, and answer some of the criticism we got from two weeks ago. Jason talks about how hate crimes are technically up, but they’re way down since ‘96. But are there really more hate motivated attacks as media reports say? Maybe not. The fact is, about 1000 more agencies are collecting and reporting hate crime data now, which obviously would lead to higher numbers. Bottom line: hate crimes happen, but so do fake hate crimes. And the fake ones are more interesting to us from a psychological perspective at the moment.

SFR 480: Be Blessed

–Strange Frequencies Radio kicks off with Bobby wishing Jason was in-studio so he could force a Guiness on him. But there’s only one beer he likes, and that isn’t it. This leads to us discussing the weird and funny things beer and wine lovers say about the smells and tastes of their favorite beverages.
–Bobby has been watching Unsolved Mysteries with his daughter, which Jason thinks can be a great teaching tool. Jason watched several episodes the night before, too, and is enjoying the detail paid to the reenactments.

wolfpig

Don’t feed us after midnight!

–Bobby talks about a UFO experience of his own he had right around December. Did he ever come up with an explanation?
–Jason talks a bit about the famous Hudson Valley UFO sightings, and discusses how UFO cases in particular often end up having very mundane explanations.
–Bobby shares some of his favorite ghost stories featured on Unsolved Mysteries, including the Heidi Wyrick/Haunting in Georgia case.
–Super cool listener Eric asked up to talk about recent flying humanoid/possible mothman sightings in the news, and we discuss a couple out of Indiana. We love the stories, but give a skeptical analysis of the reports just the same because that’s what we do!
–A World War 1 memorial in Maryland is under fire from humanist and Jewish groups who believe it violates the separation of church and state. We discuss the Supreme Court case that is ongoing, and give our reasons why we think the memorial should be left alone, even if it is shaped like a cross.
–Neither Jason or Bobby have a faith-based belief system. So would it surprise you to learn that they have each recently told someone that we are praying for them?
–That said, it can be tough sometimes not to lash out when the topic of religion comes up. Particularly, like Bobby, when during foster parenting classes, someone asked what to do if they get an atheistic child or, as they called them, a “devil baby.”
–Jason ends the show vowing next episode to discuss the topic of “toxic masculinity” as asked to by loyal friend and listener Bryce. He also said he will respond to critiques we received over our recent hate crime hoax discussion from last week. So make sure to stay tuned in next time for more on those topics!

SFR 479: Hoaxing Hate

–Strange Frequencies Radio is back in your life, and before we get to the world of the weird, Bobby gives a PSA on flu shots. Turns out that, after years of getting the flu vaccine himself, he skipped this year, and got hit hard with the flu.
–While looking for weird news, Jason stumbled across the knowledge that it has been 65 years since President Eisenhower first met with aliens. We have some fun playing along.
SFR_Eye–We run through some of the different alien races and their attributes. Which would you most want to meet? We think we’re riding with the Nordics.
–Former MLB slugger, and all around weirdo Jose Canseco, is promising to take you on a Bigfoot hunt and to meet a real alien for only $5000.
Jussie Smollett’s hate crime story seems to have totally fallen apart. He is now a suspect in the filing of a false claim, and has been indicted by a grand jury with a felony. We discuss how the story came about, why we were suspicious, and how it started to come apart.
Hate crime hoaxes are in the news more and more since the election of Donald Trump. Jason runs through a few as catalogued by journalist Andy Ngo. But he asks why, if racism and sexism and homophobia are supposedly so prevalent, do so many people feel the need to invent instances of it?
–Bobby is in a political mood, and brings up Trump’s declaration of a national emergency over border security. We seem to agree that this will be tied up in the courts and, if it makes it to the Supreme Court, it will fail.
–Also, Bernie is back in the presidential running and Bobby is none too happy. Jason, however, is. But not for the policy. He just wants a couple more years of doing the impression of Bernie’s voice!
–Has Bobby become a Republican? Or has his tribe, the left, gone so extreme that he is feeling like a conservative? Here he is talking about things like opening borders, the “wealth tax” and other higher taxes, plus government run healthcare. There are drawbacks that people may not be considering.

SFR 478: WTF Moments

–The boys are back in studio, but not before discovering shattered glass all over the floor. Who, or what, could have done this?!
–Jason tried to cheer Bobby up by giving him his belated Christmas gift, a field manual for Bigfoot hunting.
–Bobby is excited about the upcoming Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark movie. Jason remembers the book fondly, but perhaps not as terrifying as others.
photo-1–We discuss the Northam controversies, from his abortion comments through his blackface kerfuffle, before moving on to the Lt. Governor and Attorney General’s scandals as well. Bobby is incredulous, while Jason laughs like a hyena.
–In other political scandal news, Bobby brings up the latest in the downfall of Elizabeth Warren and thinks she is “done.”
–Jason brings up the Jussie Smollett hate crime story, and speaks honestly about his reasons for being suspicious initially. Bobby hopes the story is true, and Jason agrees, because the alternative is in some ways much worse.
–The FBI released their final report on the Las Vegas mass shooter, ultimately finding no clear cut motive. Jason wonders if he just wanted to experience an adrenaline rush that money couldn’t buy. But regardless of what the answer is, it would ultimately be unsatisfying.
–We also discussed a listener question centered on where it is Impossible to be happy in a society that focuses so much on the nuclear family and materialism.
–RECOMMENDATION: If you want to watch a documentary that has many “WTF” moments, and may even have you yelling at your screen, check out Abducted In Plain Sight, streaming now on Netflix.

SFR 477: How To Get Away With Racial Slurs

Unsolved Mysteries, the show the got Jason into the paranormal and true crime, is being rebooted by Netflix. The good news is that the original production team is involved. The bad news is, we don’t know who will host. Bobby is pretty excited, while Jason has a few reservations.
–What’s on Bobby’s mind? Politics, as usual. RIght now he is enamored with the idea of Trump not being able to deliver his State of the Union address as planned.
pigandwolfSFR–He’s also thinking more about how much he pays in taxes, and is now reconsidering his political viewpoints. Jason talks again about the freedom of being tribeless and how political parties should die out.
–It’s time for us to talk about the latest viral outrage story of the week: MAGA kids vs Native American. We discuss how quickly the narrative fell apart, and how disappointed we are that political activists find it perfectly acceptable to demonize teenagers. Plus, how is it that the Black Hebrew Israelites, who were the one group there actually shouting racist and sexually derogatory terms, got such a big pass?
–CNN analyst Areva Martin accuses David Webb of “white privilege” before learning he, too, is black. Jason’s favorite story of the previous week!
–We received an email from “a true gentleman” who disagreed a bit with our take last week that consumers should buy the best products for the lowest prices, saying that political viewpoints should be more involved. Bobby talks about how, while he used to feel revulsion at shopping at a place like Hobby Lobby, for instance, he now is so concerned about saving money that he overlooks the CEOs views.
–We end the show with a recommendation and a reminder. Bobby recommends the show YOU on Netflix, a story of handsome stalker Joe Goldberg who inserts himself into the life of his love interest, Beck. Jason says that, by the time this podcast is made available, Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, will be streaming on Netflix. So there ya go. Two good looking bad guys; one fictional, and the other very much not.

SFR 476: After the Shutdown

–Hey, we’re back after our hiatus and guess what? Tech problems were waiting for us. Typical SFR, in other words…
–So why did we go on hiatus, anyway? It centered on Bobby’s job interfering with our recording times. After he spent half of our 10yr anniversary podcast either away from the mic, or mentally checked out, we knew it was time to step away until things cleared up.
–Are Jason and Bobby going back into ghost hunting? It’s possible! Not because we believe in ghosts again, but because an acquaintance of Bobby’s is reporting some classically interesting issues at a house he has been working on. Might be get the chance to experience it ourselves? If so, it will definitely make good show fodder.
–A new Ghostbusters movie, this time an actual sequel to the 80s films, is in production and set to be released in the summer of 2020. We’re definitely pumped. As Jason said, “it’s what I wanted all along.”
–Bobby got caught up in one of his wife’s favorite shows on Bravo. Learning that it was a true crime story, he read more into it and find out there is a podcast telling the story, and he’s really enjoying it. Today he recommends that podcast, Dirty John.
–A smorgasbord of topics, be it the “controversy” of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and the Baby It’s Cold outside song, Jason tells Bobby that it feels so good to be a lone wolf, without a club, and not feeling the pressure to defend your tribe when they are being stupid.
–We also get into the government shutdown and its ramifications, and the possibility that Trump will not be delivering a televised State of the Union address. Bobby doesn’t think that’s such a bad idea, and Jason openly hopes for a return to the days of Thomas Jefferson.
–Bobby brings up the “toxic masculinity” ad that Procter and Gamble recently released, and doesn’t understand why people are angry about its message. Jason thinks it is because people are tired of being lectured to by corporations. “Corporations aren’t your friends,” they just want to sell you stuff. And if you buy into it, you’re a mark. Bobby does have one criticism: where are the Mexicans?

SFR 475: Cheers To Ten Years

–This week marks the 10th anniversary of Strange Frequencies Radio! As Jason is so fond of saying, “they said we wouldn’t last.” Who ever said that? No one.
–Cheers to ten years! Bobby and Jason share a couple cinnamon sugar rimmed glasses of beer.
cheers10years–We start our walk down memory lane by surfing over to the original blog of SFR, and reminiscing about some funny memories of our early shows and announcer.
–Bobby flips through a couple old SFR notebooks, and we are astounded at our guest lists. But we can’t help but laugh at the notes we would write to each other during the show.
–Jason is wearing the shirt he thinks he was wearing when we recorded the very first episode of Strange Frequencies Radio. He is happy that it still fits, but Bobby makes clear how much it stinks.
–Jason fills time while Bobby runs off to deal with work-related issues.
–Next, we open up our old case files from back in our ghost hunting days, sharing funny stories of our adventures together, and talking about the mistakes we made.
–OMG, EVPs! Yes, we’ve talked about them for years. Now you can listen to a couple pieces of audio we captured ourselves.
–There is no way we can get through all the stuff we want to today, so there is definitely going to have to be a follow-up episode next week.
–Jason closes the show by reciting his “ghost rap” once more. See you next week!

SFR 474: Solid Rod of Pain

–It’s been a few weeks since we’ve been with you, thanks for sticking with us. Bobby spent the past few days in Florida, while Jason still awaits an invitation someday.
–There’s UFOs over Ireland, and we’re not surprised.
–A quick reminder that next week is our 10 year anniversary episode! Holy crap!

wolfpig

Don’t feed us after midnight!

–Election results and what it means for the immediate future, complete with Breakfast Club references
–Is Hillary running again? A former Clinton aide sure thinks so.
–Who could beat Trump in the next election? Will it have to be a celebrity?
Stan Lee has passed away at the age of 95, and while his last years seemed sad, the legacy he left is undeniable. Excelsior!
–The Satanic Temple is suing Netflix, claiming copyright infringement related to a statue of Baphomet.
–Carol asks our opinions on “Incels,” and we respond. Bobby finds it hard to believe they exist. Jason feels bad for some of them, but has a few suggestions.
–Nathan and Pterodactyl Mike want to hear quotes from Bigfoot erotica. Jason is happy to oblige, while Bobby gets more and more uncomfortable.
–Stay tuned for next week’s 10yr Anniversary show!

SFR 473: Halloween History | Guest: Lesley Bannatyne

–You thought that witches were going to hex Kavanaugh and just get away with it? Oh, hell no! Now an exorcist has stepped into the fray with strong words and a mass of his own. Who will emerge victorious?
–The Freqs have a lot on their mind this week, everything from aliens, illegal aliens, and murder. But one question on immortalism has piqued Bobby’s interest.
halloween-michaelmyers-masked-daylight-700x321–Jason does his best to give a non-spoiler Halloween review while Bobby runs upstairs to deal with a stolen credit card issue. Once he returns, we talk about the good and bad as it relates to H40.

In our next segment, we chat a while with Halloween historian Lesley Bannatyne. Along the way we learn about when and how Samhain morphed into what we celebrate today, talk a bit about Devil’s Night, and find out some of her own favorite Halloween getups consist of. Fun discussion!

–After the interview, Bobby laments the loss of veteran character actor James Karen, and we discuss a few of his more memorable roles in films like Poltergeist and Return of the Living Dead.
–We close the show with our Halloween spoiler review, so if you haven’t seen the movie, or don’t want to know about the plot twists, you’ll have your chance to avoid the last segment.
–Strange Frequencies Radio returns in two weeks. Happy Halloween!

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.

Werewolf

photo credit: Michael Adamek

–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.
(((END TIMES)))
–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.
–END TIMES:
–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.
-END TIMES-
–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.”

SFR 465: A Bubble Off Plumb

–Jason opens the show stumbling over his own name, among other things. Then we learn a couple things about bubbles and plumbs.
Pope Francis is receiving increased pressure to speak out about the allegations made against him by Archbishop Vigano. We give our thoughts on whether or not the pope will or should resign, and also get reaction from the SFR listeners.
SFR_Eye–A paranormal investigator shoots twice at an intruder that isn’t there, later saying it may have been a ghost. Further research indicates this is the second time he has called police about a home invader that no one else can see.
–Jason asks how he should handle friends and/or people he follows on social media who regularly spread misinformation. Bobby shares a few thoughts, and the SFR audience gives some advice as well.
–Bobby explains why his wife is a better parent than he is because she allows their kids to question her rules or punishments. Jason is disappointed in Bobby, mainly because his story featured no kids being beaten.

THE END TIMES: In this newly named segment we cover the latest political news, with Bobby leading the discussion. Among the topics we delve into:
–Should Democrats campaign on Trump’s impeachment, or wait for the results of the Mueller investigation?
–Paying our respects to John McCain, who passed away this week.
–What are the odds Trump leaves office before the end of this term?

SFR 464: Riveting Radio

–The introductions are barely over when Bobby jumps in wanting to talk about Alex Jones again. Last week’s commentary about his banning prompted varying feedback.
Antifa thugs club a progressive liberal over the head at a Portland rally. His crime? He was waving an American flag. Bobby says people should not feel afraid to be patriotic. Jason talks about the violence at Trump rallies and the “punch a Nazi” craze, saying that when “might makes right,” there’s going to be someone more violent (and crazy) than you.
–The ACLU calls the decision to ban Infowars “worrisome,” and says we shouldn’t be ceding control of speech to corporations and their shareholders. Furthermore, progressives are warned that censorship authority will “come back to bite them.”
jasonbobby–Tonight’s podcast has been interrupted multiple times, which you may notice in the recording. One involves Bobby having to rush upstairs to clean dog puke, then taking the time to explain he and his wife’s equal but opposite types of personal revulsion.
–Somewhere along the line, Bobby gets a call from Pterodactyl Mike about a situation at work, which Jason sarcastically says makes “riveting radio” in the process.
–Continuing along with the upbeat programming, we talk about the recent grand jury report of the Catholic church of Pennsylvania. Jason mentions one particularly disturbing detail involving a predator priest recommended for a job with Disney. Bobby discusses a conversation with his ube-Catholic father in which the idea of a “Mueller-type” investigation is done, though they may need a lot more Muellers.
Asia Argento settles a sexual assault claim while simultaneously pointing the finger at offenders like Harvey Weinstein. Not a terribly good look. But, despite her efforts to lie and downplay the situation, we are hard pressed to find her accuser to be much of a victim.
–A quick Cook Brothers update, involving soon to be released Toledo area serial killer Nathaniel Cook. What can we tell you? Not much. Let Bobby explain.
–The remainder of the show is taken up by “Trump Talk,” because sometimes there are stories we just can’t ignore. When the president’s former campaign chairman, and the president’s personal attorney both become felons on the same day, how can we resist? This is Bobby’s bread and butter, as he is admittedly obsessed with the idea of Trump being impeached. Jason just hopes the investigations proceed fairly, and that it doesn’t become another embarrassing presidential sex scandal.

SFR 463: Relax And Eat A Taco

–The plan was to record a podcast last Friday night, on the eve of the Nelson family pig roast, with our drunk and stoned friends. But due to a late start, and excessive inebriation, it quickly went off the rails.
–The pig roast itself, however, was a smashing success. Many people showed up, enjoys great food, and refreshing beverages. But we were almost mourning the loss of Bobby, who nearly blew himself up mere hours before the festivities began.
thegang–Last year, Jason avoid eating pig brain, and we talked on the podcast about how people will gladly eat most every other part, but the brain causes them to recoil. Well, this time, Jason and Bobby ate the brain together and…it sounds like they are now on Team Recoil.
–Pterodactyl Mike, in addition to playing the part of butcher, also brought alone four Carolina Death Reaper peppers, a pepper so hot it has sent people to the hospital. Who among us would meet the challenge? Would anyone vomit into a storm drain? All is revealed!
–Alex Jones and Infowars have been banished from a variety of internet platforms, from Apple and Facebook, to Youtube and Spotify. While we agree that Jones and his ilk are awful human beings, we do have concerns about the ban. Namely, Jason doesn’t think the rules are being enforced fairly. Bobby, meanwhile, is concerned about a kind of backfire effect, where Infowars becomes more popular than ever.
–Serial killer Nathaniel Cook, one half of the Cook Brothers serial killer duo, is being released from prison after serving his twenty year sentence. Jason gives a brief history of their crimes and capture, and Bobby is afraid of what this man will do once he is back out on the streets of our hometown.
–Bobby delves back into a recent police shooting and the protests that followed, and wonders if police are in a sort of “catch 22” type predicament at times. During the discussion, listen as Bobby uses his “Hispanic privilege” to throw out the topic of white guilt, and leave Jason fumbling with the hot potato.

SFR 462: The B Goes On

–Nothing to see here. Just a couple of aging dudes talking about their balding. Bobby has given up altogether, going from constantly wearing hats to just shaving his hair off. Jason is going to hang in there until it passes the point of ridiculousness.
–It was Jason’s birthday this past Monday! He’s finally back at Bobby’s house to collect his gift, a copy of “Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind,” to aid in his increased meditation practice. But don’t worry, he’s still going to be a lovable asshole.
–Bobby tries once more to find a beer that Jason will like; this time, a “strawberry lambic,” whatever that means. Does he finally succeed?
–Killing the ‘b’ motif, Bobby launches into news bits about the filming of Star Wars Episode IX, and how the production plans to handle Carrie Fisher’s death.
Jason Korbus and Bobby Nelson–What is that Bobby’s got in his hand? Something he stole from his daughter’s Barbie playset? No, it’s just a really tiny beard brush. Jason can’t help but cop a feel.
–Jet setting Nelson talks about his upcoming vacation, quite possibly to Dublin and London. Jason can’t believe he doesn’t know we have a dedicated Irish fanbase!
–Jason bought a keyboard recently, and has been dedicating some time each day trying to learn Coldplay songs. He wants he and Bobby to duet on “Still D.R.E.” but Bobby refuses to admit he likes the song, much to Jason’s chagrin.
–Finally we get to the story Jason has been wanting to discuss: Bigfoot erotica, as it has become a political issue in Virginia. Bobby also pretends to not know Bigfoot porn exists. C’mon, man!
–The rest of the show delves into a recent officer-involved shooting by the Toledo Police Department, and the way our local newspaper helped create racial animosity. The conversation is pretty free-flowing, and even includes some commentary by newly crowned “roving reporter” Addie Nelson about a protest happening at the mayor’s house. Later, we also get into false reports of racist cops, wars, veterans of said wars, and Jason takes the position that, for all the ways gender roles have changed (for the better!) he still believes that a man’s role should be that of a protector of women. Bobby finds this somewhat controversial, since he is accustomed to cowering while he sends his wife to investigate strange noises in the middle of the night. Different strokes!

SFR 461: Christmas in July

–After some confusion over who would talk first, Bobby finally gets to talk about celebrating Christmas in July here on Strange Frequencies Radio.
–Bobby says that a Pennsylvania board has designated Bill Cosby as a violent sexual predator and, as such, he can’t admit to liking the Cosby Show anymore. Jason says when you spend decades drugging and raping women, that’s kind of how it goes. They speculate over Cosby’s upcoming sentencing.
–Seemingly everyone’s house has at least one “junk drawer,” or “junk cabinet.” Bobby has a whole junk room.
–The boys are planning a Halloween party, and intend to attend as Laurel and Hardy. Jason has the fat part down, but admits he would have to buy a new wardrobe.
pigandwolfSFR–Zak Bagans has purchased a portrait of Charles Manson made from the artist’s blood and Manson’s ashes. Jason and Bobby remark how, though they dislike Bagans, they think his collection of weird items is pretty incredible.
–Bobby is reminded of when Jason was posting serial killer cards on Valentine’s Day. This leads Jason to do a quick Google search and share a few funny ones.
–Jenny McCarthy is fooled by her own Google Home device into thinking she was living in a haunted house. Bobby talks about some weird things his Alexa device has done.
–How old does a car have to be until it’s considered a “classic”? And, more importantly, when does music become “the oldies,” because Jason is sick of hearing songs he grew up with on the oldies station.
–The future is looking more and more automated, whether that is self-driving cars or talking to your house, things are getting weird.
–Bobby brings up the concept of infant genetic engineering, where you can “create the baby of your dreams,” choosing gender, hair color, eye color, etc. Jason wonders if the same could be done with personality. Either way, he feels like discovery would be the greater joy, and wouldn’t want to participate in that. Bobby seems to feel the same. Besides, his son already likes Star Wars stuff, so he’s all set.
–We wrap up the show with a bit of Trump talk, covering the recent ground of the Trump – Cohen audio, to talking about Trump’s disastrous Helsinki summit with Putin from last week. Bobby is openly scared about what will come next.

SFR 460: Professor Paranormal | Guest: Loyd Auerbach

–The show kicks off with Bobby and Jason trying to figure out where they want to begin. Should we talk about Trump and Putin? Bobby says we can’t ignore it. Should we talk about Elon Musk calling a Thai rescue diver a “pedo”? Sure. But first…
–What is a “woo woo” topic that, while you don’t believe in it, you would nevertheless like to explore further and take part in? We had lots of great responses from our Facebook friends, where it ran the gamut from past life regressions to UFO hunting.
loyd1–Bobby can’t quite give up the ghost, still being intrigued by the potential of life after death, though he admits he would be a really crappy ghost hunter these days. Jason chose transcendental meditation, not only because of the claims of “yogic flying,” but because so many celebrities (much like Scientology) are proponents of it. But he’s not about to plunk down so much money on something he’d end up snickering at.
–Why did Elon Musk called a Thai cave diver a “pedo”? Because the cave diver told him to shove his tiny submarine up his ass! That sounds like a punchline, but no, that really happened! With the threat of a lawsuit and the loss of investors looming, Musk apologized. Still, we cover the story and decide that, ultimately, people just need to be kinder to each other.

After the break, we are joined by parapsychologist Loyd Auerbach. Though we are admittedly skeptical of paranormal phenomenon, Auerbach is one of our favorites, and a guy we definitely looked up to in our own ghost hunting days. We talk to Loyd tonight about whether popular media depictions of parapsychological research help or hinder respectability, what makes the paranormal so compelling despite many not believing in it, and common mistakes ghost hunters are (still) making, even after all this time. It was a fun, but all too short conversation, and we hope to have him back again someday.

SFR 459: You Big Baby!

–Jason kicks off the show by admonishing Bobby, because he’s been bad, and that’s what needed to be done.
–Bobby talks about seeing 4th of July fireworks celebrations four times this year. Jason prefers staying home and just listening to them. But the boys agree that many last too long
–Somehow the guys start talking about how they wanted to beat up a beggar and a woman earlier today.
pigandwolfSFR–Jason harkens back to World UFO Day last week to talk about his silly evidence that he found of alien contact. Bobby tells a terrific story about his grandfather tricking him as a child.
–Are there any cool movies coming out soon? Not sure. But Sam Elliott is in one about killing Hitler and Bigfoot that sounds like a hoot.
–Bobby begins to talk about his recent bug bite, and this causes us to talk about the weird or dumb ways in which we ended up with different scars.
–Bobby has a new passion for baking bread, and Jason just wants to eat it. Bobby shares his bread recipe, and Jason laments not being invited over to his house for SFR this week, preventing him from fulfilling his dreams of butter and cheese.
–If you want a story that reinvigorates your love of the human spirit, and not to mention science and engineering, the Thai cave rescue story should do just that.
–We went almost a whole show without bringing up Donald Trump. But when we did, it was only to briefly mention the giant Trump baby balloon that could be soon hovering over London.
–If we had a million dollars…well, we’d probably blow a lot of it on some really dumb shit.
–Toys R Us is no more and we lament its loss, even admitting how pictures of Geoffrey the Giraffe make us sad.
–We close out the show remembering our old “Creative Consultant,” Rachel, who passed away two years ago this week.

SFR 458: Fight No More Forever | Guest: Ken Gerhard

–We’re back after a nearly one month hiatus while Bobby went gallivanting across Florida with starfish on his head. So after being separated for so long, what do we talk about now that we’re back together? Pizza.
–Next, we bring up the suicides of Kate Spade and, one that hit us a bit closer to home, Anthony Bourdain. Jason talks about how this one not only took him by surprise, but actively made him mad.
–Is social media making us lonelier and more isolated? Bobby deleted the social media apps from his phone, while Jason admits cutting back substantially.
–Are we spending too much time on our phones? Bobby brings up a story involving Apple creating software that aims to make people more mindful of the smartphone addiction.
gerhard2–Bobby goes upstairs to figure out the hubbub outside the studio/basement door. Jason talks about how he is trying to practice compassion by choosing to be more compassionate toward people he dislikes. Like Donald Trump. Bobby hears this from upstairs and calls bullshit.
–The Nelson family make a brief appearance
–Jason tries to pick up where he left off earlier, saying that Bobby yelling “bullshit” reminded him of the time Obama’s State of the Union was interrupted with “you lie!” This prompts us to talk about the recent conversations about “civil discourse,” focusing on the story of Sarah Sanders and family being tossed out of a Fairfax restaurant, and the Masterpiece “gay wedding cake” case.
–Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy signals his intent to retire. Trump intends to fill the vacancy with a hardline conservative. We predict what that means for the future. Bobby foresees marriage equality and abortion rights being threatened. Jason agrees on Roe v Wade, and adds that the court will take on more gun rights issues, such as assault weapon bans and/or concealed carry cases.
–What will The Conners be like without Roseanne? We’re pretty sure it will suck. But we’ll give it a chance.

In our second segment, we welcome back cryptozoologist and writer Ken Gerhard to the show. We ask Ken what mythical monster he thinks has the best chance to be real, dig a bit into the “infighting” within the subculture, and just why it is that monster hunters seem to have more style than other investigators of weird things. All in all, a fun interview with one of our favorite guests.

SFR 457: A Cosmic Conundrum | Guest: Nick Redfern

–We attempt to start off the show as our alter egos, Nigel the Cosmonaut and Sammy Spacecraft, on our fictional podcast Cosmic Conundrum (or is it Cosmic Quandaries?), but after we play our cheesy musical intro, it dissolves into a laughing fit.
Roseanne Barr sent out a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, and all it cost her was her show, talent agency, and syndication revenue. We talk about the repercussions of free speech, and how people of different political persuasions so often end up confused about the concept.
NickRedfernPhoto–Bobby went to see the new Star Wars story, Solo, four times. He gives a spoiler-free review, though it is hard to “spoil” a movie that has little surprise about how it all ends up. Doesn’t stop Jason from taking the occasional potshot at the series and its fandom. Fight him!

In our second segment, we interview paranormal author Nick Redfern about his latest books: The Slenderman Mysteries, as well as The Black Diary. But like any chat with Nick, we also end up talking about chupacabras, thoughtforms, and murder mysteries with a supernatural angle. All in all, it was fun reconnecting after such a long hiatus.

–After the interview, Jason brings up Alex Jones again, only to mention how he is being sued by six more Sandy Hook families accusing him of defamation. Bobby agrees that Alex Jones is despicable, but we each wonder if these lawsuits will ultimately end up in victories.

SFR 456: A Royal Pain

–Do you like our show’s intro theme? Bobby tells its origins right at the top of the show, then struggles to find the song that inspired it. But don’t worry, he gets there eventually.
–We are doing a semi-impromptu recording late on a Saturday night. And we’re actually in our beloved basement studio for the first time in what feels like a month. Probably because it has been.
–Jason finally gets the chance to hold and sample the Budweiser beer based on on an old George Washington recipe. Will he actually enjoy it?
Jason Korbus and Bobby Nelson–The royal wedding is all the rave, both here in the States and in England. Bobby is furious that people are so obsessed, especially his wife and daughter. Jason asks who the royal family would be if we had one in America.
–Jason talks about his ongoing desire for a job in a presidential administration. Namely, he wants to be Snack Czar, or Secretary of Snacks. He’s just waiting for the call. Meanwhile, Bobby is angry that things at the Dollar Store don’t always cost only $1.
–Bobby misses doing interviews on the show, and wants to start booking paranormalist guests again. But his desire to “school them” is gone.
–Bobby tells a story about getting robbed at gunpoint back when he was a practicing Christian, and remembers how he didn’t even consider praying while it was all happening. Jason reminds him of the friends that talked tough when they weren’t in danger.
–Back to the idea of booking guests, we reminisce about some of our most famous (and infamous) interviews.

SFR 455: You’re the Best Around

–We are back recording on another Wednesday night! Bobby starts it off by talking about his newfound love of Budweiser’s Freedom Reserve Red Lager. Jason, who doesn’t drink beer, recommended it. Why? Because it’s based on a recipe by George Washington!
–It’s weird not doing live broadcasts lately. What have we been up to? Well, Bobby has to be a “dutiful father,” and attend plays and dance recitals for his kids. Meanwhile, Jason never wanted his parents at his baseball games.
–Fish tacos: do you like them? Because Jason hates them, calling them an “abomination” and “an affront to humanity.”
–Bobby can’t help it. He needs to have a brief political talk segment, and has a few questions about when a president can be indicted. Jason asks if anti-Trumpers believe that Trump’s term thus far has been better or worse than they expected it to be.
–Jason is excited about the prospects of a new Rambo movie. Like, really excited. He’s actually wearing an American flag bandana while recording the podcast. But talk of Rambo leads to the boys bringing up Rocky, iconic characters, and Tommy Morrison’s AIDS denial.
–Bobby, on the hand, is excited about the Solo: A Star Wars Story world premiere at Cannes. He plans to learn all the details of the plot before he ends up seeing it himself.
–We briefly talk about nostalgia as Bobby brings up the Cobra Kai series on Youtube.
–We end the show talking about the recent death of paranormal author Brad Steiger, a man whose books we enjoyed (wooey though they were) and whose company we appreciated during his multiple appearances on Strange Frequencies Radio. Bobby gets a kick out of Steiger’s old book titles. And Jason even quickly recounts an odd Fortean experience he had growing up that he once told Steiger about. See what you think!

SFR 454: Surprise Minisode!

–SFR is back after another hiatus. This time, it started of a health scare in Jason’s family. That’s right, it was finally Jason’s fault! But then, just as we were set to return last Sunday, Bobby’s laptop crashed, forcing him to have it repaired. However, we are back now, and really excited to be recording again…even if it is via Skype.
–Joseph Deangelo Jr. has been arrested in a 40 year old serial rape and murder case known as the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker/Golden State Killer. The good news is, it looks like the police have got their man. But serious privacy concerns arise over the manner in which they found him.
–Bobby’s kids continue to piss him off by interrupting the show, and Jason does his best to listen in and enjoy.
Bill Cosby has been convicted on all counts in his retrial for the aggravated indecent assault of Andrea Constand. What made this trial different than the last? Will Cosby serve any time? All this and more is discussed about a case that really creeped us out.
–That’s all, folks!

SFR 453: Last Minute Cancellation

–Hot damn! Bobby is here two weeks in a row! Now let’s see if we can actually record a show this week that doesn’t sound like we are broadcasting from a well.
–Jason brings up the recent military strikes in Syria, mostly because Bobby is afraid of World War 3. But it turns out, he’s actually supporting it!  Jason says he would have liked to see congressional approval first, but does point out the hypocrisy of the outrage.
–Since we’re going to get past the Trump stuff first, why not mention that his lawyer, Michael Cohen, was raided by the FBI this past week. Should be we concerned by a breach of attorney-client confidentiality? What about leaks?
–Roseanne Barr loves Trump, and has made no secret about that either publicly, or on her popular sitcom. We are big fans of the show, so what do we make of the people who are boycotting because of her views and past tweets?
–We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Art Bell, paranormal radio pioneer, passing away at the age of 72. We share remembrances of him, and talk a bit about his legacy.
–Did Buzz Aldrin “pass a lie detector test” that proves he saw aliens? No. First of all, there is no such thing as a “lie detector test,” secondly it doesn’t appear he really took a test, and third, he’s never said he saw any damn aliens. We’ll explain the confusion.
–With murders in London skyrocketing, largely because of increases in knife attacks, Mayor Sadiq Khan is implementing “knife control,” because, as he says, “there is never a reason to carry a knife.” Wrong move.
–The Atlantic fires conservative writer Kevin Williamson because he views abortion as murder, and thinks women who abort pregnancies should be hung. We ask for your opinions!

SFR 452: Creepy Characters

***We are aware of the poor audio quality. We clearly goofed.***

–It’s been a long 2 weeks off, and it feels like we have missed so much. So instead of having a set lineup, we’re just winging it today. Whatever comes up, come up. Let’s go!
–Bobby starts off by talking about his new workout and diet regimen that is slowly making him angrier and in more pain. An aspect involving Bobby having to send
pictures of his body to a man each week gives Jason endless laughs.
wolfpig–Jason brings up the recent shooting at Youtube. We talk about how strange it is to see a woman commit an act like that, even if we agree that this lady was off her rocker. There are disagreements, however, about whether or not the story would have stayed in the headlines longer had it been the prototypical white male.
–That brings up the Austin bomber story we missed out on while we were away, and how we had a hard time calling it an act of terrorism without knowing the motivations. Was he targeting minorities? Church leaders? White bicyclists? Or just trying to kill or hurt anyone he could in the short time he was active? And is the definition of terrorism itself being stretched so far by some as to be almost meaningless?
–Bobby uses the idea of “terror or fear in a community” to bring up a series of break ins that have been happening in his neighborhood, and how it led some to react in dangerous ways.
–That led us to tell a variety of our own stories involving break ins, foiled burglaries, and creepy people we’ve run across in our communities over the years. It takes up the rest of the show! And a lot of them are pretty fun! So if anything we talk about brings up a memory of yours, feel free to drop us a line and share.

SFR 451: Unpopular Opinions

–Wow, we’re back doing a live broadcast on Sunday! Bobby was not too sick, nor did he remember he had another kid that was celebrating a birthday, and he didn’t go out of town with Anderson Cooper or something. Fun!
–Today’s show is about unpopular opinions. Or, at least the kind of opinions that make people uncomfortable in certain situations. Some of them will be ours, some will be yours, and we’ll explore others in between.
–We start with a clip of an interview between Jordan Peterson and Cathy Young, wherein Peterson makes the argument that, in order to think things out and get closer to the truth, you sometimes have to risk offending people. But that’s just the price for free speech and free inquiry.
–Jason brings up a public discussion a few months back involving Steven Pinker at Harvard, where he brought up a few different facts that, while easily provable, are still considered unpopular or controversial in certain circles.
–We left off last week with the subject of school shootings, wondering why the perpetrators are typical white teenagers. Out of the several comments and emails Jason received, he brings up a couple that stuck with him.
–This brings up the recent #Enough school walkouts that happened on March 14th. Bobby shares some of his opinions, believing it has been positive, but also expressing the cynical idea that some of the protestors just want to get out of class. Jason questions the idea that much of it was even a “walkout” at all, and mentions at least one pro-gun student being threatened with arrest for publicly expressing his opinion. Plus, Tucker Carlson says that the pro-gun control students are “not citizens,” earning a much needed smackdown.
–While on the subject of politics, can we talk about the Stormy Daniels-Donald Trump fiasco? Bobby says that he is tired of hearing about it, and the guys agree that the Democrats will hold anyone up as a hero as long as it will negatively impact Trump. Jason has, shall we say, some slightly harsher words?
–To lighten the mood, we go through some of the many comments we got from listeners confessing their own unpopular opinions. While there were a lot of people who stuck with pop culture, ie: “The Beatles are overrated,” there were a few folks that were willing to stick their own necks out and risk being unpopular. For instance, Bryce said that not having children can still be altruistic, and Sari is tired of some women trying to have it both ways, dressing like porn stars but not wanting to be looked at as sex objects. All in all, there were some laughs, but also some serious conversations here. Thanks to everyone for participating!
–Just when Jason thought the show was over, Bobby brings up how sad he is at the closing of Toys R Us, and the guys reminisce on their childhood trips to the toy store.

SFR 450: Saturday Night Live

–Here we are on a Saturday night, broadcasting a live show, all because Bobby can’t make it Sunday. Again! But seriously, he has a pretty legitimate reason, and we’re fired up to talk through the issues of the week. Doesn’t stop Jason from giving Bobby the new nickname “Bobsquatch,” however.
–A story involving the identification of Amelia Earhart’s bones has many talking, but there are very good reasons to be skeptical. For one, the group behind the press release has been pushing debunked nonsense for years. And oh, there’s more.
–What’s weirding everyone out this week? Lots of stuff, as a matter of fact!
*AJ brings up the point that Congress is bitching and moaning about Trump’s tariffs when they could be doing something to stop them.
*Tim says he is weirded out that the president will be taken down by a porn star.
*Michael is rightly concerned about Tennessee protecting child marriage.
*Jeanne is thinking about the Russian spy poisoning.
*All that, and a whole lot more, is weirding out the SFR Universe this week!
Lawrence Krauss has released a statement denying accusations of sexual misconduct against him. We sift through his response, and talk through some of the major claims.
–Jason begins a conversation about school shootings, wanting to get beyond ideological camps, and discuss the reasons why school shootings happen. In other words, why are they getting more frequent? What is it about our culture in particular that could explain the reason that kids kill?
