On September 13, 2015, we joined weekend host Dave Schrader on Coast to Coast AM to talk about what we know best: all things weird. From the haunted objects in the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal and the Occult, to our most incredible adventures, to tips on how you can seek out the strange and unusual in your backyard, the subjects in this episode of Coast to Coast AM cover all the strangest bases.
You can listen to the whole show here, and you better, because we had to rent a room at Days Inn to use their landline.
Here’s the show notes via Coast to Coast AM:
In the first half, Dave Schrader welcomed paranormal adventurers Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews, who discussed their experiences traveling throughout North America in search of the strange and unusual. They recalled one bizarre incident that happened when a pair of seemingly eccentric Bigfoot researchers invited them to West Virginia, promising a “foolproof way to let us meet a Sasquatch.” Upon their arrival, they were regaled with fantastic stories about how the men had interacted with the creature. Although weary of these claims, Newkirk and Matthews agreed to go camping with the men in an area that was allegedly a hot spot for Sasquatch activity. As the night went on, their skepticism turned to amazement and fear as calls to the Bigfoot were answered by booming howls, stones were thrown at their camp, and silhouettes of large creatures emerged on the horizon.
During their appearance, the duo also talked about their traveling museum of weird curios. Amongst the articles in the exhibition are a plank from the infamous Amityville Horror house which has been known to distress psychic sensitives and make EMF meters “go crazy.” One particularly troubling object in the collection is a black scrying mirror that was given to them by a woman after her mother became obsessed with it. After bringing the mirror to various events, Newkirk reported, people looking into the mirror have claimed to see their own corpses, feel an electrical shock while holding it, and even taste blood in their mouth. Later in the evening, Newkirk and Matthews also told stories about strange locations in America such as the paranormal hotspot called Camp Comfort and a gravesite in Georgia said to be the final resting place of a woman who was said to be a werewolf.
