13 O’Clock Episode 84 – The Haunting of Bobby Mackey’s

On this ghostly episode of 13 O’Clock, we’re going back to our recaps of “A Haunting” episodes, and this one is about one of the most famous haunted locations in the United States. Bobby Mackey’s Music World has been a popular Kentucky honky tonk since the late 1970s, but it’s evidently been haunted for as long as anyone can remember. Its alleged former use as a slaughterhouse and a speakeasy, as well as being the site of alleged suicides and at least one gruesome murder, has practically ensured that paranormal activity has often been reported and several ghost hunting teams have conducted investigations of the place. So slap on your ten-gallon hat and climb onto the mechanical bull as we run down the tale of the infamously spirit-infested country and western bar on episode 84.

13 O’Clock Episode 52 – EVP and Spirit Communication

Have you ever been making a recording in a creepy old house (like you do) and gotten a lot more than you bargained for, such as, say, disembodied voices turning up on your audio devices? Welcome to the eerie and controversial world of electronic voice phenomena (EVP), which has now become an integral part of any paranormal investigation. The internet is awash in spooky recordings of supposed voices of the dead, but how real is this phenomena, and can our video and audio technology really be used to communicate with the other side? On this installment of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny discuss EVPs and spirit communication, play some examples of EVPs, break down the history of the concept of talking to ghosts through audio devices, and hone in on some of the better known figures in the field, such as Marcello Bacci and the radio he uses to talk to spirits. Tune in to our ghostly frequency and listen for the voices, because it’s time for episode 52.

Look, Up in the Sky! It’s a Ghost! It’s a Poltergeist! No, it’s an ACTUAL UPDATE!

I apologize for not being able to post many of my wildly entertaining movie reviews and generally scintillating wit as of late, but the Goddess has been exceptionally busy producing the 13 O’Clock podcast, doing enough graphic design work to keep her in the manner to which she has become accustomed, and, most relevantly, trying to finish her brand spanking new book.

Yes, paranormal pals, my newest tome, an exhaustive compilation and exploration of poltergeist cases throughout history, will be dropping very soon! It’s called The Unseen Hand, and it includes not only a breakdown of parapsychological and naturalistic theories about the causes of poltergeist activity, but also features well over a hundred poltergeist cases from all over the world from the first century to 2016, all summarized for your spooky reading pleasure. If you’ve heard of a particular poltergeist case, or even if you haven’t, chances are I’ve written about it in here. I covered a lot of ground, is what I’m saying.

The writing of the book is completely done, and at the moment I’m just doing the final editing and formatting, as well as recording the audio book. As soon as it is up and running, I will of course post a link right on this very blog.

But in case you can’t wait that long, I will not only post a teaser of the cover below, but I also invite you to go have a listen to the wonderful Me and Paranormal You podcast, on which I was recently a guest, talking about the world of the paranormal and my uneasy association with it. Listen, enjoy, and sit tight, for more ghostly goodness is in store. Goddess out.

13 O’Clock Episode 25 -The Scole Experiment

Often bandied about as one of the most compelling investigations into the reality of spirit communication, the Scole Experiment was actually a five-year-long series of around 500 seances attended by both mediums and scientists in various fields. The list of witnessed phenomena seems impressive: disembodied spirit voices, moving lights, tilting tables, and the appearance of bizarre images and writing on unexposed film kept in a locked box. But how solid is the evidence gathered by the Scole experimenters really? On this episode, Tom and Jenny give an overview of the project and examine some of the problems with methodology that cast doubt on  the conclusions drawn by the experimenters.

13 O’Clock Episode 12 – The Enfield Poltergeist

On the even dozenth episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny have an in-depth and “spirited” (heh) discussion about what is probably the best-known poltergeist case of modern times, that of the Enfield Poltergeist from 1977.

The story of the Hodgson family and their bizarre encounter with the paranormal (or the shameless hoaxing by Janet Hodgson, depending on your perspective) has been the subject of numerous documentaries, a kick-ass book called This House Is Haunted by Guy Lyon Playfair, a British miniseries called The Enfield Haunting, and the recent Hollywood horror film The Conjuring 2.

Your favorite podcasters separate the wheat from the chaff, the fact from the fiction, and along the way give a shout-out to late parapsychologist Maurice Grosse, who spent over a year with the family investigating the disturbances, and kinda throw some shade on demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, who said they were involved in the case but really only showed up uninvited for like five minutes.

Flying toys! Flipping furniture! Floating children! A little girl saying all kinds of creepy shit in an old man’s voice! It’s all here on this entertaining exploration of the Enfield Poltergeist.
