Last Show Recap

In the first half of Sunday's show, author and motivational speaker David Essel exposed the myth of positive thinking. Self-realization, and the real "secret to success" requires much more than positive thinking, affirmations or vision boards, he argued. In the latter half, comparative mythologist David Talbott and Australian physicist Wallace Thornhill updated their lifelong investigation of "the Electric Universe" that offers a revolutionary view of the cosmos.

Photo composite on the left: The talking board pictured at top is an early incarnation of a Ouija, likely from the Bond/Kennard era (1890-92), discovered by Robert Murch in London. The lower left item is an 1850s British automatic writing planchette from the collection of Brandon Hodge. The lower right picture features one of Dr. Robert Hare's famed "Spiritoscopes" from his experiments in spirit communication in the 1850s, also from Hodge's collection.

On the right: The upper left talking board is a rare Kennard "Volo" board produced by Northwestern Toy Company in 1892, from the collection of Robert Murch. It is flanked to the right by another prize from the Murch collection, an early Ouija Novelty Company "paddle" planchette from the 1890s. The bottom picture features the only known surviving "Wanda Tipping Table" from the 1920s, from the collection of Brandon Hodge.
