Last Show Recap

Weird Tales

In the first half of the program, George Knapp welcomed nuclear power expert, Arnie Gundersen, who discussed how, more than four years after the triple meltdown at Fukushima, nuclear waste inside the reactors continues to bleed into the Pacific Ocean creating low concentrations of radioactivity that have already migrated across the Pacific to the west coast of North America. Steven Starr of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation briefly joined the conversation during the second hour.

In the latter half, former Nevada consumer advocate and public utility commissioner Timothy Hay addressed the attempt by power companies to crush rooftop solar energy by throwing up roadblocks to make it harder for homeowners to install, and how electric companies hate the idea of clean, plentiful solar taking away their business.

Weird Tales

Show Archive
Date: Friday - June 17, 2005
Host: George Noory
Guests: Open Lines

During Friday night's Open Lines, George offered a "weird hotline" for people with bizarre stories to tell. Ken from St. Louis recalled seeing his distant half-brother in a dream minutes before he passed away. Another caller remembered the time he was using a Ouija board with his landlord, and the board spelled out the name of her deceased husband (Mortimer). The caller also described his landlord's pantry, which was infested with "thousands upon thousands" of cockroaches.

Steven from Kentucky shared a strange experience that changed his life. While looking for ginseng in a wooded gorge, Steven said he became lost and got out his compass to regain his bearings. The compass needles started spinning, Steven explained, and soon he felt a jolt inside his arm. Since then, Steven said his artistic abilities have increased significantly. He is now able to draw, play guitar, and is intuitive.

Daniel from Los Angeles believes he encountered a Leprechaun, which he described as "demon trickster angels from hell," in a steam room at his gym. He said the man in question had red hair, a pointed nose and chin, a goatee, and played Irish jigs on a harmonica. Daniel said the man asked him if he knew one of the songs he had played and then invited him to take a "tour of hell."
