Author and paranormal researcher Konstantinos shared some of his research into the occult. Konstantinos said he first became interested in occult-related topics from stories his grandmother used to tell him.
Konstantinos talked about contemporary vampirism and blood-drinking rituals, as well as identified three types of vampires: immortal blood drinkers, mortal blood drinkers, and psychic vampires. He also spoke about Vlad the Impaler, the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula.
Konstantinos provided some methods for recording and communicating with spirits, including capturing Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) on tape, listening for voices of the dead in white noise, utilizing telepathy, and holding a seance. He commented on modern psychics, who he said rely more on 'cold reading' techniques than real paranormal abilities to gain information.
Konstantinos discussed summoning entities and also spoke with George about his upcoming Ouija board experiment, recommending he go through with it.
