Spiricom & ITC

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - November 6, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Stephen Rorke, Joseph Buchman

Scientific investigator Dr. Stephen Rorke discussed the field of instrumental transcommunication (ITC), of which EVP (electronic voice phenomena) is a subset. Of particular focus, was his study of the Spiricom case. Popularized as "the most convincing evidence of two-way communication with the dead," the Spiricom was a device that incorporated a radio transmitter/receiver with 13 audio oscillators that approximated the tonal range of an adult male voice. Built in 1980 by George W. Meek, the Spiricom was operated by William O'Neil who allegedly contacted the spirit of George Mueller, a deceased NASA employee.

Rorke found inconsistencies in the Spiricom story and evidence that O'Neil had ventriloquist skills, and may have used them to create a second voice by manipulating an electric larynx. Audio clips, such as one by created by Dr. David Rivers, were played, demonstrating the similarity of the Spiricom recordings and someone using an electric larynx in an "incorrect way." Though he considers Spiricom to be an unusual hoax, Rorke called for more scientific study of EVP, to determine if it's something beyond apophenia.

He also presented audio of a purported "telephone call from the dead." The voice, which identifies itself as the late Konstantine Raudive (one of the founders of the study of EVP), left messages for George Meek and Mark Macy. Rorke suspected the voice was hoaxed as a kind of "power grab" within the ITC community.

Roswell Revisited

First hour guest, Joseph Buchman talked about his interviews with key Roswell witnesses, and his views on ET communications. He spoke with Glenn Dennis, the mortician who took the call in July, 1947 requesting small caskets. At the time, Dennis said a nurse showed him a drawing she made of alien bodies that were being autopsied at the Roswell military base.
