Last Show Recap

First Half: In the course of nearly five years of recorded interviews, Frank Sheeran confessed to investigative author Charles Brandt that he handled more than 25 hits for the Mob, and for his friend Jimmy Hoffa. Joining George Knapp, Brandt shares an update to his original investigation with more evidence about Sheeran's involvement with Hoffa, new information on other famous murders, and the announcement of a film adaptation of his book from director Martin Scorsese.

Second Half: Pioneering promoter of sci-fi books and films, the late Forrest J. Ackerman, never believed in an afterlife of the soul; nonetheless, he promised a few respected colleagues that if it were possible he would try to send messages from the beyond. Authors and researchers Paul Davids and John Allison, will detail more than 100 incidents of Ackerman's unusual and uncanny messages and phenomena, as well as impressive scientific support of an afterlife. Mark Rollings, current owner of what was once the 18-room Ackermansion, will also briefly join the conversation.
