During Open Lines George asked listeners to call in and share their worst fears. One caller, who admitted to being afraid of werewolves, remembered seeing what he thought was a werewolf staring into his bedroom window one stormy night when he was a little boy. Fortunately, the hairy creature turned out to be his pet dog.
Megan said she had a phobia about having her Achilles tendon cut. Another caller acknowledged his fear of things paranormal. Specifically, he dreaded waking up in the middle of the night to find sinister eyes peering at him from the darkness. A trucker phoned in to reveal he feared demon possession, as depicted in the horror film The Exorcist. Several callers recounted ouija board stories, including one caller who described at length his attempts to destroy a seemingly indestructible ouija board with fire.
Steve in Cleveland shared a story about a fellow trucker who got killed while driving his route. According to Steve, fuel receipts signed by the deceased trucker mysteriously showed up at his home and he has no explanation for how they got there. George also read some headlines from a 'time traveler' who emailed him headlines from the year 2029. According to the traveler, in 2029 the price of a first class postage stamp is nearly $18, the lowest IRS tax rate is 75%, and voters in Florida are still having trouble with their voting machines.
In the first hour, author Jerome Corsi offered an update on Iran's recent steps to establish an oil market denominated in euros instead of U.S. dollars. According to Corsi, an oil market in euros would present a "serious problem" for the United States, as it would likely destroy the value of the dollar. He believes this could lead the U.S. into war with Iran. Corsi also predicted Israel would launch an attack, possibly nuclear, against Iran to prevent the country from developing its own nuclear arsenal.
