Ghosts, UFOs & Anomalies

Investigator Joshua P. Warren returned, sharing his latest research on active paranormal sites, in places such as Puerto Rico. More than ever, he is seeing a relationship between UFOs, ghosts, aliens and cryptids-- and noticing that more than one type of these activities are taking place at specific locales. Time is a key component to paranormal mysteries, he commented, with ghosts tied to the past, and UFOs possibly connected to the bending of time/space. Encounters with balls or spheres of light have been reported all over Puerto Rico, and sometimes people communicate telepathically with them, said Warren. He also discussed ghost photos, such as a 1950 image taken during a remodeling of the White House, which shows a transparent figure. In order to discern true photographic anomalies, he suggested taking photos of various physical phenomena such as dust, insects, and cigarette smoke to see how they appear on your camera. Warren said he was trying to balance his research be ... More »

Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso

Ian spoke with crime expert Philip Carlo, who shared stories from his research into organized crime and discussed his latest work, Gaspipe: Confessions of a Mafia Boss.Carlo said he grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, where he was a neighbor of Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso, the man who led the Lucchese crime family and is serving thirteen consecutive life sentences plus 455 years at a federal prison in Colorado. According to Carlo, Casso is very angry about his current situation, and at least partially blames it on Vincent "The Chin" Gigante's refusal to kill an FBI informant in his crew.Carlo discussed the 1991 Windows Case, which involved the manipulation of who received the contract to install hundreds of thousands of windows in city-owned buildings in New York. This case led to the arrest of the heads of all five crime families, Carlo explained, noting this as the reason Casso initially went on the lam. Carlo also provided details about Casso's association with Louis Eppol ... More »

The William Shatner Interview

During the first two hours, actor William Shatner shared stories from his remarkable career including his roles in Twilight Zone, Star Trek, and Boston Legal. He got his start doing radio plays in his native Canada, before moving on to acting for the stage in New York. Later, as he was in a failing TV series opposite Bonanza, he got a call from Gene Roddenberry to take a look at a pilot for Star Trek. The series in which he played Capt. James Kirk, ran for three years on NBC, but it was not a huge ratings success-- it was only in subsequent years during syndication that the show took off, he recounted. Leonard Nimoy, who played Mr. Spock, has remained a close friend throughout his life, helping him get through the loss of his wife Nerine, said Shatner.He recalled the classic Trouble with Tribbles episode: "I certainly remember being buried in these little furry balls," as the stage crew through the balls at him, while silently laughing. His serio-comic style as the Priceline ... More »

Edgar Cayce & The Universe

Astronomy writer James Mullaney discussed his book Edgar Cayce and the Cosmos, which examines the "Sleeping Prophet's" readings about the universe.As a scientist, he was initially skeptical about the Cayce material (which was delivered in a trance state), but upon study, he was won over by its accuracy and insights. Some highlights he presented from Cayce's readings: Someone in antiquity had a telescope, but it was found rather than built by that person's civilization. There is no life like ours in the solar system, but there are other beings/civilizations elsewhere in the universe.The stars and planets do not govern our future. In a sense, sunspots are caused by the turmoil of the human race. Cayce, who died in 1945 and often spoke of past lives in his readings, may have reincarnated on another world, Mullaney suggested. Cayce's entire 14,306 readings are available on a searchable CD-ROM, which Mullaney said he used in his research. ... More »

Templar Secrets

Author and Anglican Priest Lionel Fanthorpe returned to talk about Knights Templar secrets and the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark may have originally belonged to the Egyptians and it could have had alchemical powers to transform energy into a mysterious "fifth element," he said.

The Great UFO Debate

Physicist and investigator Stanton Friedman faced off with astronomer Seth Shostak of SETI in a debate about the nature of UFOs.

Friedman argued that we have been dealing with a kind of "cosmic Watergate" in that the government has been covering up much of the evidence. ... More »

Searching for ET Life

Seth Shostak (seti.org), Senior Astronomer at the SETI Institute, appeared on Tuesday night's show speaking about the possibilities for life in our galaxy, as well as closer to home in our solar system. "Everything in the universe is made up out of the same stuff," which could mean there are a lot of carbon-based life forms out there, he surmised. Shostak explained that SETI doesn't target their radio telescope time on star systems such as Sirius or Zeta Reticuli because of stories or myths about aliens that hail from there. Rather, they use other criteria such as the age of a star system in making their selections. However, he pointed out that when the Allen Telescope Array comes online, these stars along with many, many others will be targeted. That there could be a "Planet X" Earth-sized object way out on the edge of our solar system, Shostak acknowledged. There are many rocks out there in the Kuiper Belt, he said, and the recently demoted planet Pluto, which he called "an ... More »

Cosmic Radio

Things are on the upswing at SETI according to the organization's Senior Astronomer, Seth Shostak, who appeared on the program Thursday night. To be finished sometime in 2005, will be the Allen Telescope Array which can be used by SETI 24/7, scanning star systems for signals. Containing 350 small antennas, it will be spread out over 2/3 of a mile in Northern California, and free the organization from having to rely solely on waiting for their turn to use the Arecibo radio telescope. ...
