A special evening featured four separate guests covering such topics as spy chips, ghosts, food & energy, and ancient Lemuria.
In the first hour, privacy advocate Katherine Albrecht reported on how cell phones can be used to track people's locations without their consent. A cell phone sends out a location beacon every 15 minutes, but this can be subverted by turning your cell phone off, she said. Bluetooth headsets have even less location privacy she noted.
Appearing in the second hour, ghostbuster Mary Ann Winkowski described her work communicating with the deceased at their funerals. She noted that spirits often linger at the photo collages increasingly used at funerals in order to hear what people say about particular images. Of late, people seem to be dying at younger ages as though they're in a hurry to move on, she commented.
Author Howard Bloom joined the show in the third hour to offer analysis on the oil and food crisis. Blaming food riots in various countries on the increased production of ethanol is a "snow job," he declared. OPEC bought up a huge share of commodity futures and this is what drove up the price of food, he explained.
In the last hour, researcher Glenn Kimball spoke about the ancient civilization known as Mu or Lemuria. The culture of Mu spanned the entire globe and dated back tens of thousands of years, he contended. On places such as Easter Island, they had special towers that were designed to mechanically prevent tsunamis, and temples were used as portals, where heavenly knowledge could be gleaned, he detailed.
Appearing briefly at the start of the show, radio host Alex Jones presented another update from the site of the Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, VA. Just as he went on the air, he said a fire alarm went off at the Marriott, where he's staying. He suspected it was a deliberate attempt to silence him.
