For more than four decades, Ralph Nader has saved lives, opened minds, implemented solutions, and inspired citizens everywhere to participate in building a better, more democratic world.

He described hearing a baby cry in the middle of the night and later witnessed a teenage girl holding an infant just before she walked right through a wall. A night watchman at a cemetery also called in, and said he sees Shadow People every other night. He traipsed through the graveyard live on the air, and read the names off a few headstones. We also heard from T.J., an "archaeologist/parapsychologist" who told of finding a 65-million-year-old artifact that contained Gaelic-like writing. He said it was written on an unusual kind of paper that wouldn't burn when put under fire, and claimed that the text referred to an ET spa ... More »Host: George Noory
