George was joined by investigator Joshua P. Warren, who shared his paranormal/hoax research and took phone calls for all four hours of the program.
Warren said paranormal activity seems to increase during the Halloween season. People who wish to experience unusual phenomena at this time of year can employ Dr. Raymond Moody's 'psychomantium technique'" - mount a mirror above eye level so that you cannot see your own reflection, darken the room, and look into the center of the mirror for 3-4 minutes. According to Warren, Mark Nesbitt was able to record demonic sounds during a such a session, and some have seen full body apparitions emerge from the mirror.
Warren talked about his annual UFO Experience, in which participants build fake UFOs to help researchers determine whether or not UFO footage is genuine. This year's winner, Jim Robison, was able to recreate the 'Phoenix Lights' effect for only $25, Warren announced. He also pointed out that footage from three-time winner, Jeff Wilson, has been used to create the stunning Irish Triangle UFO hoax.
Warren touched on the recent Bigfoot hoax perpetrated by Matt Whitton and Rick Dyer. He has made an arrangement with the two men to sell the Bigfoot 'body' on eBay to help settle financial problems created by their hoax and to fund Warren's non-profit hoaxresearchcenter.com.
Warren also discussed how negative people and "other forces" can affect the brain electrically and alter how a person feels, as well as shared the creepy story about a woman who was being awakened nightly at 2:00 am. Warren said the woman set up a video camera in her bedroom to find out what was happening. The footage showed a tall dark hooded figure float into her room and then back out just before the time she woke up each night.
In the last half hour, George played a segment from his 6/12/08 interview with actor William Shatner.
Economy & Hubble
Appearing at the start of the show, investment adviser Michael Shedlock commented on the shaky US economy and Wall Street's financial meltdown. Despite the enormous decline in the stock market this week, Shedlock believes it will drop even further. Read more at Shedlock's Blog.
Next, Richard C. Hoagland of Enterprise Mission spoke briefly about NASA's plans to revive the ailing Hubble telescope, as well as the possibility that the White House will soon make an announcement about life on Mars.
