Adam shares the tragic story of silent film star Olive Thomas, whose ghost haunts the landmark New Amsterdam Theater in New York City.
John finally talks about the Great Purge of 2018. If you're not mad, you should be. This is dangerous stuff.
Julian Assange says being forced to clean his cat's litter box is a violation of his fundamental rights.
Some dutch guy "identifies" as twenty years younger - and wants to legally change his age.
That giant flying rock might be an extraterrestrial...
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! A spooky little treat from John: Edgar Allan Poe's THE RAVEN and THE TELL-TALE HEART.
Best with headphones. ;-)
We'll be back next week with a "normal" episode. In the meantime, stay safe and eat lots of candy!

Ack! The Stupid! It Hurts!
Okay, so let's see. In last week's news, Elizabeth Warren releases a dubious DNA test that the mainstream media claims is, "strong evidence" of Native American ancestry. At the same time, the Saudis say that the killing and dismembering of a dissident journalist was simply, "an interrogation gone wrong".
Can you say, Idiocracy?
And then, to top it off, after Stormy Daniels described Trump's penis as looking like Toad from Mario Kart, he calls her,...
Remember Krypton? Now that we're grown-ups we can kinda see how the powers-that-be on Superman's homeworld might turn a blind eye to an impending apocalypse. Case in point: The Yellowstone National Park SUPER-VOLCANO. Which is due to erupt, and which could very well mean the end of humanity.
John goes on a political rant. So what else is new? But really, he's pissed - at everyone. Listen and see if you're on the list.
It's the 35th anniversary of the film WARGAMES. Did you know Ronald...
Why did the feds shut down the Sunspot Solar Observatory in New Mexico? Aliens? Espionage? We call shenanigans!
What was Ronald Reagan's favorite Soviet joke? The CIA declassifies a trove of cold war comedy gold. Yes, we spent money and manpower on this.
Witness the Online Exodus: thousands of Reddit refugees banned from the comfort of their homeland in search of peace, prosperity, and political ascendancy. It's a virtual biblical epic.
For the hundred thousandth time - no, we are not...
Tonight we talk about the possible political sabotage from within the Trump administration. Are we witnessing a coup attempt? Regardless of your politics, none of this bodes well for the future of our country, especially if the Demon Cat starts appearing again.
Oh, hadn't heard that one?
Yes, apparently a Demon Cat haunts the Capitol Building during times of great political strife. Is the apparition a warning? A harbinger of death? Or chaos?
But, it's mostly movie night here on Magical...
John walks us through the surreal saga of Soul Sistah Omarosa and the Great Trump Hair Theft. Plus, Bill Maher as the Pizza Man. Predictive programming, a glitch in the Matrix, or are the trickster gods having fun again?
North Carolina guy with rock-steady hands films a blimp - er, "spacecraft."
The Bermuda Triangle mystery has been solved! Spoiler: it ain't a time vortex. Unless it is. But it probably isn't... unless it is.
What is hypocognition? Only the cause of literally ALL our...
WARNING: This episode contains disturbing and graphic material.
There's been a lot of chatter lately on social media about alleged high-level pedophiles, and the supposed elite networks under which they operate. Much of this is due to a few professed victims posting on Twitter and elsewhere.
This is a difficult topic to research and discuss, and we don't take this endeavor lightly. We feel it's important to present the facts and evidence as we know them, so listeners can make up their own...
This time it's Adam who goes down the rabbit hole, investigating the shocking claims of Sarah Ruth Ashcraft - alleged victim of ritual sex abuse and MK-Ultra mind control. How seriously should we take her accusations against Tom Hanks and other Hollywood and Washington elite?
This is a breaking story, but we felt it important to capture our thoughts at this point. We will of course follow up as this story further develops.
Join us next week as John brings us his long-overdue full-length...
We revisit our predictions from the beginning of the year. How are we doing so far? Listen and find out!
John is on a quest for evidence of the underappreciated cryptid thunderbird. How goes the hunt? Not great, actually...
Three schoolgirls disappear without a trace in Victorian Australia. Murder? Accident? Timeslip? Well, this is just fiction, after all... isn't it?
Finally, John brings us an EPIC "What's the Word..." where he dissects the recent Mueller indictment, revisits the...
There's an area in PA called Chestnut Ridge that's been infested with paranormal activity for the last hundred years or so. Bigfoot, UFOs, Dogmen, and prehistoric flying creatures known as Thunderbirds have all made an appearance. We take a look at some of these stories and wonder if there are some areas more prone to supernatural occurrences than others.
Most notable of these stories is The Kecksburg UFO Incident that occurred on Dec. 9th, 1965. Something fell from the sky in the small...
Have scientists debunked all these "Hitler survived" conspiracies and definitively proved - once for all - that the Nazi leader did indeed die in the bunker in 1945, just as the history books have always told us?
Or, does this so-called proof raise even more questions than it answers? Case definitely NOT closed... in our humble opinion.
The cinematic genius of Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky, existential angst, prophecy, and the subconscious mind. And, of course, what kind of film...
Roseanne Barr says MK-Ultra rules Hollywood. Is she a victim herself? She also seems to have a history of dissociative identity disorder - which would not be inconsistent with her claims.
What other celebrities have struggled with dissociative identity disorder? And what does the disorder say about the mind, about the soul, about life?
Yanny/Laurel? How about Green Needles/Brainstorm? This one is way cooler, and opens up all kinds of questions about how the mind works.
John gives us a...
We talk of many things: of shoes and ships and sealing wax... of cabbages and kings...
You want ghosts? We got em. Aliens? Of course! Time Travel? Naturally. Interdimensional invaders? Flat earth theorists? Government cover-ups? AI apocalypse? Out-of-body experiences? Star Wars?
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, YES!
Oh, and the "Laurel"/"Yanny" thing. If you did a search for this and it brought you here -- you know what we mean.
It's a Conspiracy!
A rash of recent "scientific" studies about what makes conspiracy theorists tic have been hitting the news lately.
Well, we could say it's a conspiracy to try and debunk conspiracy theorists and conspiratorial thinking, but then that just proves we're conspiracy theorists prone to conspiratorial thinking. As if that's a bad thing.
John nearly falls for an Ethereum scam, but escapes at the last minute. Probably because he used his conspiratorial thinking to...
UFOs, Area 51, Exorcism, Time Travelers, Vampires...
We discuss our favorite moments from Art Bell's seminal COAST TO COAST AM. Called "The Godfather" of late night paranormal and conspiracy talk radio, Bell had a huge influence on a generation of fringe-dwellers and truth-seekers - us included. He will be missed.
In an extended "What's the Word on the Street?", John walks us through the possibility that the Syrian poison gas attack was a false flag operation, allowing the US and its...
April Fools and Happy Easter!
Back from a much needed Spring Break, John and Adam return to the weird, wacky, and wondrous world of conspiracy and the paranormal to learn that THERE IS NO HELL.
And Jesus apparently died in vain.
That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for Flat-Earthers. Mad Mike Hughes' hilarious and dangerously idiotic attempt to prove that... he's Evel Knievel? Super Dave Osborne?
Adam experiences a little post current events synchro-mysticism.
The subtitle of this podcast should be: How to Stop Worrying and Love the Surveillance State.
As we mentioned in last week's show, Adam purchased an Alexa Echo, which has been making the news lately for randomly laughing at its users. Amazon claims they've addressed the problem and fixed it. But this story raises some troubling questions about the potentially sinister nature of these new technologies. How much control do we want to cede to these behemoth tech companies for convenience?
In this week's episode we review a fascinating UFO incident that occurred in October of last year. What makes this case so interesting, is that researchers were able to obtain the audio recording of the air traffic controllers, pilots, and the FAA while it was happening in real-time. Fighter jets were scrambled, but still there are no definitive answers yet on what the object was, its final destination, or intention.
What the hell was it?
Another Bigfoot lawsuit filed in California. The...
In this week's episode, John and Adam tackle the Parkland School Shooting conspiracies, the disinformation, and outright bullshit surrounding this tragic event.
Shouts of "False Flag" and "Crisis Actor" are all too common these days and, far more often than not, without merit. We'll dissect these claims and, hopefully, contribute a little critical thinking to the conversation.
In the second half, John breaks down the recent Mueller indictments of the 13 so-called "Russian Trolls" who...
