–SFR is back in your life! And with another week away, there’s a lot to get into. Where to begin?
–The “Storm Area 51” event, that morphed into AlienStock, that morphed again into an all things extraterrestrial free for all happened over the weekend, and we give the scoop on what went down. Good news: it doesn’t appear anyone had to be vaporized for trying to see ‘dem aliens.
–Justin Trudeau had a bad week. Some old photos of the Candian PM donned in “brownface” were uncovered and he had to make a few apologies. Bobby laments that liberals focus on these kind of scandals. Jason says that, while he is pretty sure Trudeau is not a racist, he does enjoy when someone who positions themselves as ultra progressive and “woke” has to grovel before the politically correct elite.
–Benny Hinn is renouncing the prosperity gospel, in what Jason thinks is almost assuredly a new version of the same scam he has been pulling for years. Bobby warns to heed the words of James Randi about these “unsinkable rubber duckies.”
–Bobby attends a friend’s diaper party, and shoots an AR15! How did he, someone who admits he is uncomfortable with guns, feel about shooting the most despised firearm of the political left? Well, it sure sounds like he enjoyed it…
–We went to the theater to see IT and some creepy guy offers us his children. A weird little event we just had to share with you.
–Finally, we give our fully detailed review of IT: Chapter Two, and yes there are *spoilers* involved. Bottom line: neither of us liked this movie, and we left very disappointed. But we want to hear what you thoughts, so please let us know.

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

–Bobby is hyped about new Star Wars streaming programs, and makes three prediction possibilities for the upcoming film. Meanwhile, Jason is all about the Breaking Bad movie coming soon to Netflix.

–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 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.
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.

–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.
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 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.
