Journalist Eric Olsen (2nd & 4th hour) and paranormal investigator Theresa Argie (3rd & 4th hour) shared stories from their delving into hauntings and the paranormal, and the terror surrounding some of the nation's most haunted sites. Olsen described how he had intense paranormal experiences early in life, and then sought to "turn them off" for decades, while Argie, nicknamed the "Haunted Housewife," has devoted herself to studying the paranormal, investigations, and ghosthunting for many years. Among the tools she and her investigative partner Cathi Weber use are digital recorders, cameras that record the infrared spectrum, dowsing rods, crystals, and even a Ouija board on occasion.
One of the most haunted places Argie visited was the Mansfield Prison (Ohio State Reformatory), where she ran into some nasty spirits. "I actually had my hair pulled...I've been pushed at Mansfield Prison, I've been scratched, and we know people that have been physically touched there as well," she said, adding that someone was punched in the stomach, so hard that they doubled over. "You have to be very careful because I think sometimes the spirits can be very, very frustrated and angry," she continued.
Her partner Cathi had scratch marks appear on her back with blood dripping from them during their investigation at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, she recounted. One of Argie's scariest experiences was when a spirit attached itself to her after a paranormal investigation at a private home. "I had this thing with me for weeks, if not months. And it affected every aspect of my life," she revealed. Olsen and Argie also talked about such haunted hotspots as the Lemp Mansion, the Villisca Axe Murder House in Iowa, Waverly Hills Sanatorium, and the Queen Mary.
Update: Underground Malibu Structure
First hour guest, talk radio host specializing in the paranormal, Jimmy Church, discussed his work researching and breaking the story about the Malibu deep underwater "base" or platform (graphic) earlier this year. Discovered through sonar mapping and topology studies, the top of the structure is 150 feet down, which suggests that it was above the water 10,000 years ago, he reported. Church believes the mysterious platform may have been a celebrated covered entrance to an inland river 10,000 to 50,000 years ago.
