Our newest feature for Coast Insiders, The Art Bell Vault, offers an expanding curated collection with two vintage shows added to the mix each Wednesday. This week's offerings explore the phenomenon of near-death experiences, beginning with a fascinating edition of the program from 4/10/2005 wherein Art spoke to pioneering NDE researcher Dr. Raymond Moody. He detailed cases which seem to defy the 'dying brain' explanation often offered by skeptics as the reason behind near-death experiences. Moody also talked about a phenomenon dubbed 'fey,' in which people on the precipice of passing over suddenly develop a heightened state of awareness.
Next, we journey back to March 4th, 2006 for an episode in which Art was joined by British near-death expert Dr. Sam Parnia for a conversation about cardiac arrest patients experiencing NDEs, which his research indicates occurs in around 10-to-20 percent of such incidents. Additionally, he discussed how near-death experiences are not a modern phenomenon and, in fact, have been reported as far back as Plato. Parnia also shared accounts of out-of-body experiences reported by people who were undergoing surgery.
These vintage programs have commercials and breaks removed and are presented in multiple-platforms-- available on-demand for Mac, Windows, IOS, Android, and the Coast app. Many of them feature rare "5th" hours of content from back in the 90s when the show had a longer running time. We do include Art's beloved bumper music, which became such an indelible part of his program.
And for the true Art Bell fan, we offer different listening options to fine-tune your experience, such as guest only, and full show streams. Coast Insiders, we're very happy to bring this new offering to you at no additional charge to your subscription! We welcome your feedback.
