37 Orbducted in the French Quarter

This week I’m sitting down with Chad and Alta Dillard, authors of "Orbducted in the French Quarter", who have had an array of paranormal experiences, ultimately leading up to an abduction experience that you’re just going to have to hear for yourself. HERE'S THE FOLLOW-UP EMAIL I SENT THEM: I wanted to provide you a little bit of feedback from a radiology perspective (rather than the podcast host) when it comes to your x-rays.

33 Gangstalking and Strangeness in San Diego

This week I’m following up with Chris Wolford. We’ll be touching base on Tom Delonge, the terrifying concept of Gangstalking and how it just might be utilized today, and one of the most interesting photos I've ever seen of a ghost, or perhaps something else as this interview suggests. Also discussed, some very interesting high strangeness that is getting a little too personal for my comfort here in the San Diego area. I just want to forewarn you that the part of our discussion about this...

32 Artic UFO and the USS Trepang

What do you think of when you hear the term “UFO”? The name should speak for itself, however when someone typically mentions the term “UFO”, most people picture a preconceived notion of a saucer-shaped vehicle or little green men sitting in the pilot’s seat of a disc-shaped craft. Personally, I consider anything in the air which I do not recognize as unidentified. You won’t find me reaching out to the medial too quickly because I also believe a majority of those things could be easily...

31 Mothman of Point Pleasant

On December 15, 1967, with less than two weeks before Christmas, residents of the towns of Gallipolis, Ohio and Point Pleasant, West Virginia flock to shopping centers after work to finish their Christmas shopping. Traffic jams ensue as a result, and people sit in their cars attempting to cross the aging Silver Bridge, which connects the two towns traversing the Ohio River. The bridge collapses, sending vehicles and their occupants into the ice-cold water, ultimately resulting in 46...

30 Alien Grey Encounter with Chris Wolford

This week, I have another fascinating listener interview with Chris Wolford. Chris found Deviatus through friend of the show, Ryan Sprague of Into the Fray fame, and I should mention that Ryan has actually started his very own podcast called Somewhere in the Skies, named of course after his book which I interviewed him about way back on episode 3. I also happen to subscribe to both Somewhere in the Skies and Into the Fray… if you like Deviatus, I highly encourage you to check both of those...

29 Ouija Board Nightmare

When the spiritualist movement began in the late 1800’s, psychic mediums commonly held seances in attempts to communicate with the dead. This practice became popular in the United States after the end of the Civil War, when families would long to hear just one more time from their deceased loved ones. The introduction of the talking board gave the everyday person an opportunity to attempt spirit communication without the need for a spiritual guide or medium. The first talking boards were...

28 Unpopular Culture

When people experience something strange, whether it’s being touched by an unseen force, seeing an apparition or shadow figure, or hearing voices, we tend to either look for validation of that experience or try to find an explanation in an attempt to categorize what happened. For some of us, these things can be easily dismissed as an active imagination, a hallucination or pareidolia - where the human mind assigns context to randomness. While some believe they truly have witnessed evidence...

24 Ed Roman on UFOs, Spirits and Bigfoot

Every time I record an episode, I typically discuss one specific type of incident or phenomenon, but every once in awhile you run across someone who has had multiple different types of experiences. Being a podcast listener myself, I’ve heard of people having UFO experiences along with Bigfoot experiences, or they’ve had shadow figures in their homes as well as alien visitations. But how many people have you heard of who have had experiences with ghosts, UFOs and Bigfoot? This week, we’re...

23 Lorna Adams Psychic Medium

Today’s guest is Lorna Adams, and she specializes in psychic readings for current topics, as well as future readings, and she can connect people with someone who has passed on. She also serves to connect people with their spirit guides, and she even gave me a personal reading during this interview. Some of that information involves people who are alive and well in my personal life today. For this reason, I have intentionally muted the audio when the real names of people who did not wish to...

This week on Deviatus, I'm happy to bring you a very special bonus episode.
