Join us as we talk to the new kids on the paranormal block, the Ghost Brothers! Dalen Spratt, Juwan Mass and Marcus Harvey are the first all black paranormal team on television and they are making a splash! Each week Dalen, Juwan, and Marcus explore some of the world's most notoriously haunted locations, bringing their unique brand of humor and enthusiasm. Some may say, "Why these three? Many have decades of experience under their belts." Well, you'd be surprised how fast these three learn on their feet when the spirits come out to play! Here's a little background on today's guests.. Dalen Spratt As the leader of the group, Dalen identifies, researches, and organizes the locations that the Ghost Brothers investigate. He is bold and willing to try anything while looking to make contact with spirits. When he was 7 years old, Dalen saw an apparition in his grandmother's house and that experience had a very profound impact on his life and how he approaches the paranormal. Juwan Mass This Chicago native started his fascination with the paranormal when he was 12 years old when he would go ghost hunting in graveyards. In 2005, Juwan and Dalen met as fraternity brothers at Clark University, and bonded over a shared interest in the unknown. In 2011, they began investigating historic and abondoned locations with a mission to uncover the paranormal ever since. Marcus Harvey The newest member, Atlanta-based Marcus is a barber with celebrity clientele. Dalen became one of his clients and the gossip over ghosts quickly convinced Marcus to join the group. Marcus is the charmer of the group and his playful character brings the humor but also handles the tools and technology for the team. The Ghost Brothers take a passionate hobby to the next level investigating historically haunted and often abandoned locations, testing their own spirit along the way. All raised in religious households, the Ghost Brothers were taught that “messing” with the dead is dangerous business, but some unexplained experiences of their own drove them to find out firsthand just how spooky the supernatural can be. Dalen, Juwan and Marcus enlist local historians and caretakers to provide the history of the property to better understand what they are facing. When night falls, viewers join the antics of their afterlife investigation as the trio uses local experts, investigative equipment, trigger objects, and most importantly, their southern charm, to help make contact with the other side. Armed with paranormal equipment and the car alarm, the Ghost Brothers face their fears and take us to some of the planet's scariest places! Listen in as they share some of their best ghost stories!

Thomas Whaley came to California during the Gold Rush. He opened his first general store in the San Fransisco area, selling hardware, tools, and firearms. After arson destroyed his buildings in 1851, Thomas Whaley relocated to Old Town, San Diego. He purchased a lot on the corner of San Diego Ave and Harney Street in September of 1855 and built a single- story grainery the following year. In 1856, Whaley began construction of an adjacent two-story Greek Revival style brick home of his own design. Thomas Whaley proclaimed, "My new house, when completed, will be the handsomest, most comfortable, and the most convenient place in town or within 150 miles of here," Upon completion in 1857, the home was acclaimed as the "finest new brick block in Southern California" by the San Diego Herald, and cost the impressive sum of 10,000. Whaley partnered with the Deputy County Clerk and the Chief of Police to expand the building into one of San Diego's earliest courthouses. Along with a general store, the building even boasted a commercial theater. But why has this grand home and center of commerce become such a ripe source for hauntings? Did I menton that the land was a bit of a bargain because it was used as the site of the public gallows? Yes, Thomas Whaley himself witnessed James. (aka "Yankee Jim" ) Santiago hanged off the back of a wagon off the very site. Legend says Yankee JIm's rope was just a lttle too long and Jim slowly strangled with his boots scraping the ground. Many a man swung where the Whaley House now sits. Childhood deaths, a broken hearted daughter's suicide, and years of public hanging are entwined with the story of the Whaley house. If you come to San Diego to visit the Whaley house, make sure you visit the graveyard just down the street. Yes, Yankee Jim is buried there. And take a look down while you're walking. You'll notice brass markers on the sidewalk. They say, "grave marker." Old Town San Diego has a lot of secrets... Join me as I talk to Whaley historian Jokie Tolentino as we "dig up" the secrets of San Diego's haunted Whaley House Museum!

Winchester Mystery House. Taking a Closer Look. Eccentric Widow or is it Filled with Freemason Iconography?
The iconic Winchester Mystery House. We've heard the story of an eccentric widow who built a rambling nonsense house to "confuse" the spirits of those killed by the Winchester Rifle. The Winchester House is one of the most recognized estates in the United States. It has over 160 rooms, staircases that lead up to nowhere, and doors that open to solid walls. Was all this the musings of a crazy woman or are we missing the hidden meanings of the house's anomalic architecture? Who was Sarah Winchester? Most of us know only one side of the story. Dubbed "The Belle of New Haven," Sarah Pardee Winchester was a beautiful woman with a brilliant mind and an impressive education for a female of her time. She was fluent in Latin, French, Spanish, and Italian. Sarah had an extensive knowledge of Homer and Shakespeare and was an accomplished musician. Young Sarah was raised in a liberal environment that embraced progressive Freemason-Rosicrucian theology. She attended Yale University's female scholastic institution, the "Young Ladies Collegiate Institute." Yale has strong ties to Masonic-Rosacrucian ritual and symbolism and is home for the secretive club, of the Skull and Bones Society. Given her rote knowledge of Shakespeare, numerology, Freemason iconography and an eye for architecture, it's time we take a fresh look at the Winchester Mystery House. The house is bursting with cryptic and anomalous features throughout. The prime numbers 7, 11, and 13 are prominant throughout the estate. Be it 13 windows in a room, 11 rails in a railing, or the number of planks in a floor, these numbers were of particular importance to Sarah Winchester. Many of the rambling staircases and labryinths contain sacred geometry and may hold pieces to a much larger puzzle. Was Sarah Winchester wanting vistors to participate in her puzzle to stretch our ideals? Is the house simply filled with anomalies and whimsy and placed randomly, or is this house more like a backdrop from The Divinci Code? Perhaps she is aluding to the Freemason's philosophical ideal as noted in Proverbs: 25 "It is the Glory of God to conceal a thing. It is the Glory of Kings to find a thing." Let us take a look at Winchester Mystery House with fresh eyes as I chat with historian Janan Boehme

We as paranormal investigators introduce ourselves and converse with people who, are, well, dead. We may know only bits of a person's life if we are lucky enough to connect with a particular spirit attached to a location. We may know a name, some history, and perhaps a few of the tragic events that may have caused a spirit to be at unreast and haunt a location. We rarely had the opportunity to get to know that person when they were alive. But what about someone who deals in Life and Death every day? Wouldn't a person who has an intimate relationship with making life saving decisions indeed have a unique perspective on Life and Death? Edison McDaniels is a writer and novelist living in the American South. He specializes in historic fiction, surgical thrillers, and stories of the supernatural. His writing tends to involve ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances and is often informed by medicine and his knowledge of surgery. His stories showcase historical fiction and the supernatural, especially ghosts. He received honorable mention in The Seventeenth Edition of the Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror (2003), and has been published in Paradox Magazine, The Summerset Review (available online), The Armchair Aesthete, On The Premises Magazine, EverydayFiction.com, and others. Many of his short stories can be found online.

We look into the night sky and see an endless sea of stars. Are we alone in this vast Universe? How did we get on this little blue rock called Earh?

In his book, “Yahweh, The Biblical God, is an Alien” John adds his insights into Ancient Alien Theory as a theologian, in the area of exospirituality.

I am excited to announce my guest on October 20 will be the the one and only Amy Bruni! Known for her years of paranormal investigations on the original Ghost Hunters, Amy Bruni and Adam Berry have partnered to create a new show, Kindred Spirits. As if we weren’t already excited to watch Ghost Hunters alumni Amy Bruni and Adam Berry on television again, the duo just dropped some big news: their new series, Kindred Spirits, is moving to TLC. Even better? It premieres October 21! Ever since their departure from SyFy’s Ghost Hunters in 2014, fans of the dynamic duo have clamored for them to return to TV, so when Bruni and Berry announced that they were slated to executive produce and star in a new series for Destination America, viewers were thrilled. The series, titled Kindred Spirits, follows Amy Bruni and Adam Berry as they investigate ghostly cases that revolve around frightened families who are often unsure of who they’re being haunted by or why. As two of America’s leading ghost hunters, the duo leave no stone unturned as they attempt to crack the case and help bring peace to both the restless spirits and the families they haunt. The first episode features a mother and daughter from Little Meadows, Pennsylvania, who have been dealing with broken lights, mysterious scratches, and most alarmingly, a strange figure appearing to watch them from the woods at the edge of their property. It takes Amy and Adam multiple investigations to get to the bottom of the strange activity, but the case takes a heartbreaking turn when they do. Join me as I talk to Ghost Hunter alumni Amy Bruni and find out about her new show, her crazy life having a young daughter, and the future of paranormal TV!
