Nostradamus on Plagues / Ed Gein: Psycho Killer

About the show

In the first half, world authority on prophecy, John Hogue, shared his analysis of the quatrains of the great sixteenth-century prophet, Nostradamus, and what they say about COVID-19 and future blood plagues. The seer made about 2200 prophecies, with 1400-1500 in verse, he noted, and about twelve of them repeat a pattern of plague, famine, war, and renewal. In Quatrain 75, Century III, he names the countries of Italy, Spain, and France and refers to "swords of distant lands damp with blood." According to Hogue's interpretation relating this to COVID, the distant land is China, the swords refer to invisible weapons that hit people with plague, while blood represents the immune system. 

The next line of Quatrain 75-- "A very great plague" will come with a husk-like shell. "Relief near, but the remedy is far away." Hogue explained that in the plague-battled 16th century, "relief" might have meant dying quickly. In Quatrain 65, Century VI, he writes of "the sloping park, great calamity will be done through the land of the West." Hogue suggested that Nostradamus could be pointing toward Wuhan as the source or start of the pandemic, as there is a large riverside park in that city that is known for its slope. For more on this, check out Hogue's forthcoming book, Nostradamus Coronavirus and the Pandemic Prophecies. He also talked about how the conflict with Russian and Ukraine is an example of the new 'Cold War' we're already experiencing, and that China-Taiwan is a worrisome hotspot. 


In the latter half, paranormal expert, filmmaker, and rapper Steve Shippy talked about his investigation into the killer Ed Gein, whose gruesome and macabre behavior served as the monstrous inspiration for films such as Silence of the Lambs, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Psycho. Accompanied by psychic medium Cindy Kaza, the two traveled to Gein's hometown in Plainfield, WI, and were allowed on the Gein property. Shippy detailed how just as Kaza would say that she was sensing a spirit presence, the EMF meters would spike in the area she was located (view a trailer from their documentary, "Ed Gein: The Real Psycho," which just debuted on the Discovery+ channel).

Known not only for his murders, Gein also exhumed bodies of recently deceased women and dressed up in a full-body skin suit made out of their body parts, as a way to somehow emulate his dead mother. Shippy said that Gein's mother Augusta abused him and ingrained the idea in his head that women were inherently evil (like Norman Bates' mother in "Psycho"). It was after Augusta died that he went off the deep end, he added. Calls to the show included a recollection about a police officer who first arrived at the Gein house, and a worker at the Mendota State Hospital who interacted with Gein when he was a psychiatric patient there. Shippy also talked about a 1974 haunting in a farmhouse outside of Saginaw, Michigan, where a family experienced horrific poltergeist-like pounding on their house and other anomalous phenomena. Eventually, the activity escalated into repeated episodes of spontaneous combustion-- several of these fires were witnessed by a parapsychologist from Duke University.
