Episode 59: I Met A Ghost At Gettysburg
Can you imagine what it must be like as a professional journalist of over 40 years? A journalist with great credibility to their name, and one who has won numerous journalistic awards. Who is very well known in their community, and a sceptic of all things paranormal - that is until moving into a haunted house. Then afterwards encountering a specific spirit on the battlegrounds of Gettysburg. Not only that, but being able to verify all the information given to you by that spirit in that encounter. How would that leave you feeling? This is what faced my guest Don Allison as he struggled to come to terms with his experiences....

Episode 58: #1 - Signs From The Other Side
This is currently my most downloaded and listened to podcast episode. Death, the final frontier – to change a quote from an old TV series, if you’re a trekie, then you will know it. But is death the final frontier, the end of us? Or is it just the end of our physical body, the vehicle that we currently use? Like with the victims of Spontaneous Human Combustion in our last episode? What do you think? In this episode I discuss ways our loved ones who have passed over may try to let us know that they are still around us. Still living, albeit in another reality, another form. And I, amongst others, share  personal experiences. See you then.

Episode 57: #2 - The Shadowpeople
This is currently my second most downloaded episode of the podcast. Shadow People. What are they? Where do they come from? Shadow people are a very common phenomenon, where people see these dark black, generally human shaped forms. Darker than the night around them. Some of these figures have glowing  red, green, or yellow eyes. Some are seen wearing hats, or carrying  something. Some are more solid than the wall they are in front of. Some  have really whispy, foggy edges..... But what do they want from us? Join me as we explore the history, and myths around these beings and  hear real experiences from people who have witnessed them for  themselves. Myself included.

Episode 56: #3- A Glitch In The Matrix - A Holographic Reality?
This is currently my # 3 most downloaded podcast episode. In this episode I take a close look at what have commonly become referred to as "glitches in the matrix" after that famous Matrix movie starring Keanu Reeves.   These are experiences that have left people scratching their heads and   wondering what just happened to them. With no logical explanation that   can be found for it. I take a very brief excursion into the world of holograms, and the holographic universe theory.   Of quantum physics and the brightest brains in these areas in the   world, who suggest that this world is, in fact, a holographic reality. I   look at the Mandela Effect and how living in a holographic reality that has parallel dimensions   could possibly explain this. And I  have experiences that people like   you have had, that they simply cannot explain. As Elon Musk says: “There is a ONE in a billion chance that we might NOT be living in a simulation.”

Episode 54: The Halfway House
Imagine as a single mum of a baby under a year old. You come into a wee bit of money and your Dad suggests you purchase a home for you and your wee one. You are drawn to just one home, and immediately you know it is the one for you. So you move in and almost immediately things start happening in your home. At first you pass it off as old house noises, but then your renters downstairs come to you with their issues.... what do you do? Listen in to Kirsten's experiences in her home. Not a typical haunting. Her reaction may surprise you.

Episode 53: Riding The Witch
Imagine waking in the middle of the night unable to move a muscle, and feeling or see the presence of something malevolent either in your room, or sitting on your chest. You try to scream for help, but no sound escapes your lips. After what seems like eternity the presence and feeling of being paralysed suddenly stops as quickly as it started. You lay there terrified and confused about what just happened. You have just experienced what has many names in different countries and cultures throughout the world - Riding the Witch, Night terrors, The old hag syndrome - or the more modern term of Sleep paralysis Around 7.6% of the world's population will experience at least one episode of Sleep Paralysis in their lives. But for some unfortunate people this is a recurrent happening in their lives. Medical Scientist say it can easily be explained away as a neurophysiological event - BUT, does that preclude it from being a spiritual event as well? Listen to this weeks episode and decide for yourself.

Episode 52: The Ouija Board - Is it really just a game?
Are Ouija boards merely a game with very clever marketing? Or are they actually a door through which your worst nightmare could step? And if they are, then one would have to suppose that the “ghost boxes’ and other forms of communication with the spirit world are actually the same, or rather could produce the same results? In this episode we look at a brief history of how ouija boards came about and share some very disturbing experiences people have had using them.

Episode: 51: The Black-Eyed Kids
Picture this: You are asleep in bed, it's 2am. Suddenly you are woken by the sound of persistent knocking on your front door, rubbing the sleep from your eyes you go to the door and open it. To your surprise you see two wee children standing on your doorstep. It's the middle of winter, but these kids are dressed in inadequate clothing for the weather. Looking at them you are overcome by an irrational and unexplainable terror. Despite that, your concern for the kids overrides your fears and you ask them what they want and where are their parents? They ask if they can be let in so they can phone them. And then they look up at you and to your horror their eyes are completely black, no whites, no colour whatsoever. Your impulse is to slam the door shut, but inexplicably and against your will, you notice you are actually opening it further. Black-eyed kids. What are they? Where do they come from? What do they want? Are they real or simply an urban legend? In this episode we'll hear theories and experiences from those who have witnessed these enigmatic and strange looking children.

Episode 50: Tyler's Return
Losing someone we love is a very painful, very difficult and heartbreaking journey. There are so many questions we are left with.... The least of which is do they continue on?  If they do, can they let us know they are still around us? And are they aware of our pain at their loss? Do they know how much we love them?  Deb., tells us all about experiences she had for the period of 18 months following the death of her then, young (27 year old) husband. How her place was 'haunted' by him but it is not in the least scary. It's a love story, touching and very raw, of how love transcends death and how life continues after this existence. Even now 16 years afterwards, the pain is still raw for her.

Episode 46: Spontaneous Human Combustion
Imagine if you will, simply sitting down to have a cup of tea, or sitting with a friend preparing for a fishing trip, when with no external heat source your body simply bursts into flames, burning you from inside of your body to the outside? Would you even feel the flames? Would you be aware that this was happening to you? And even if you were, could you do anything about it?  Or imagine that you are a witness to such an episode? How would you react? What would you do? These are the situations that this episode confronts. This episode is about the phenomena of Spontaneous Human Combustion, and shares witnessed and documented real-life accounts of people who have perished in this manner and a few rare, very lucky people who had this happen to them, but survived to share their experiences.

Episode 45: A Glitch In The Matrix - Experiences
If you saw the Matrix movie starring Keanu Reeves, then you may recall a scene when Neo is with all the crew in the matrix, when they are awakening him, and he looks into the hall and in front of the stair case a black cat walks past, left to right. Immediately it does the same thing. When Neo comments on this the crew members recognized that it was a Glitch in the programming of the matrix, causing that scene to repeat itself. In the movie they could explain what happened. But, how do you deal with events like that happening in this reality, in your day to day life?  This is the situation my guests in this episode found themselves in. Experiences that happened in their lives that they cannot rationalize or explain away. Experiences that have left many of them questioning the nature of this reality. Questioning what is reality? How would you respond to such an event?

Episode 43: #2 - UFOs in the Night Sky - A Conversation With Bonnie
Imagine, you are a young woman, in your early 30's who has just faced  a series of three life threatening strokes. So bad, that you have had  to completely learn to talk again. Then imagine that one night when you  are at home healing and  struggling to recover your literal voice, that  you get this compulsive urge to go outside and look at the night skies.   You don't know why you have this urge, but it is utterly compelling and  so you go outside and look up at the night skies. . . . And that is the  beginning of almost nightly visitations of unexplained lights and  crafts moving in the night skies. How would you feel if this happened to you? Would you feel like you  were going crazy? Like it was some kind of side effect from your  strokes? Or even worse, that you might be having another? This is my guest Bonnie's on going experiences. Bonnie lives in  Texas, in the USA and kindly shares her experiences with us. She talks  about how they have changed her life and how she is able to capture  these craft in photos almost every single night.

Episode 42: #3 - The Nimitz Encounters
Imagine that you are a military service person, on active duty and  during a routine naval exercise. That the role of your ship is to  protect the naval fleet from air attacks. Imagine then that during this  routine exercise some unidentified objects show themselves on your  radars, which is the highest quality and most recent tech available.  These object show themselves in groups of up to ten at a time. For days  this happens. The systems are taken down and recalibrated in case they  are showing errors, but returned showing the objects in sharper detail.  Finally the commander of the strike group sends jet fighters to  intercept these AAV or Anomalous Aerial Vehicles as the Navy calls  them. The first group goes up and the commander of that flight crew has a  very close encounter with one of them, returns to base. A second flight  crew is sent up and this time they are able to capture this object which  was nicknamed the 'Tic-Tac' object due to its shape. A video of part of  this incident was  ‘leaked’ to the world and has been the subject of  intense speculation  since. In part one of two episodes I discuss these events and have a very  special guests in both episodes. My first guest in this episode, Gary Voorhis was  one of the crewmen on board the USS Princeton at the time of the  incidents and saw the actual UFOs through the ships 'Big Eyes"  binoculars whilst on board the ship. He shares what his role was on the  ship and his experiences of these objects and what happened after

Episode 40: #5 - Paranormal Investigations with James Gillberd
Old  buildings, deserted for many years. Or relatively new buildings, both  homes and businesses, or medical institutions and even land, have been  known to have ghostly inhabitants. Inhabitants that can scare and  disturb the people who currently live, or work in these places. Because  of this, there are a rare group of people who make it their mission to  seek out such places, such haunted locations. There can be many reasons  for this. My  guest tonight James Gilberd., is one such person. I have been following James' Paranormal Investigation group (Spooked: New Zealand Strange Occurrences Society) and page for some time, partly because of professional courtesy, as I also run my own paranormal investigation group, called Shadowlands Paranormal Investigations. And, simply because I like and really appreciate his approach to this work and his dry sense of humour. James talks about his experiences as a paranormal investigator and about the book he co-authored with Dr. Jo Davy, about his groups experiences.

Episode 39 -Extra: Music Of The Plants - Part Two
In the first part of Music of the plants, my guest Gary Cook answered a question a member of my  Walking the Shadowlands Facebook group had for him about the Patupaiarehe,  (the New Zealand fairy folk), from  his previous appearance on the podcast. Then he took us on a gentle  stroll, talking about the wonderful world of the plants, and trees  around us. He talked about ‘Tree Blindness’, what that is, and how the  term came about. He talked about  tree energies and how  they worked together, to both support each other, and humanity as a  whole. We also had snippets of beautiful, and sort of haunting music a  tangelo tree, and a pounamu or New Zealand greenstone, created. Yes, you  heard that correctly. That they created. . . . In this episode we conclude our discussion with Gary explaining about music of the plants. How this music is obtained from them, and how the specific electrical technology came about, to be able to do so. He also shares snippets of music created by these plants and shows an example of how they respond to music being played to them, but creating matching harmonies.

Episode 38: #6 - Music of the Plants
In this two-part episode my former guest Gary Cook returns to talk with us about his ongoing research with plants and how  we and nature are totally interconnected on so many levels. He discusses  how plants communicate with each other, as has been discovered in  recent scientific research. Gary is a very well known New Zealand and Internationally published author, favourite guest lecturer and documentary maker.  And, he talks in his beautiful, rambling way, sharing his  experiences as he talks, about how nature is such a vital part of our  life and how we as a species have become plant blind. How we rarely even  notice the plants that are around us any more. He discusses how plants  not only communicate with each other, but can communicate with us as  well.

Episode 37: #7 - The Kaikoura Incidents
New Zealand is a small country in the South Pacific, for those who   don’t know us. Comprising of two main Islands, the North and the South   Islands. We are the last stop, and the main gateway to most countries  in  the world who have bases in the Antarctic. So geographically we are a   fairly isolated country, however, our isolation does not preclude us   from our fair share of UFO sightings and encounters….  This episode is  about our most famous sighting. One that made the news all over the  world and is widely regarded as being in the world's top ten credible,  filmed UFO encounters. In this episode I  go over a timeline of the events on both nights  and basic rundown of the over all events. Also, I am very thrilled to  have one of the last surviving professional witnesses to those  encounters. My guest is a gentleman, now in his late eighties, who was  on duty and in control of the Wellington  Air Traffic Control Center at  the time of these incidents. He is so kind as to share his recollection  of the events with us all. His name is John Cordy.  John shares with us  his recollections of how the events unfolded and the ongoing effect this  has had on his life

Episode 36: #8 - The Men-In-Black
When you hear the words "The Men-in-Black" some of you will immediately, in your mind,  hear that catchy tune sung by Will Smith. Or think of the movie of  the same name. For some people however, the fact that a movie was  created from real-life events and beings does not escape notice,  particularly if you have had the experience of meeting such beings.  These meetings sometimes, but not always, follow encounters of whatever  description, with UFOs or UAP (unidentified aerial phenomenon), which is  the preferred term used these days. We live in a very mysterious world, and there’s so very much that we   don’t understand about it. And, that is just on this planet…. But, we   also live in a universe that for those of us who are experiencers, know   is teaming with life. There are many things that happen here that just   don’t make any sort of sense at all.  Some say that The Men-in-Black  belong in the don't make any sense category. What or who are they? Where  do they come from? What is their purpose? In this episode I explore the myths and the realities of these  encounters and beings. I personally had an encounter with these beings  the day after a close UFO encounter. I share my story with you in this  episode, along with the experiences shared by many other people.

Episode 35: #9 - A Forest Encounter
Forestry is one of New Zealand's main export industries, and so we  have many, many small and large crews working in the the bush, as we say  here in New Zealand. Very often these work sites are deep into the  forest lands and quite isolated from near by towns or cities. Some even  hours of driving away. Their very geographical isolation causes these  groups, who generally camp on the worksite in these cases, to become a  tight, close knit working whanau, or family. Sometimes the world of us humans and the world of the Elemental,  interdimensional beings clash, as in this case. What happens then? Is  this a good experience for the human, or is it possibly not?  And what  would you do if you were in such a situation, where you came  across  such a being? How would you react? What would you do? And, how would  this be experienced for you? My guest in this episode has requested to remain anonymous and I have  respected their wish. This guest shares their experiences with us, that  happened whilst they were working deep within the heart of a specific  area of the New Zealand forest.

Episode 34: #10 - The Bentwaters Incident - A New Perspective.
Imagine being 19 years old. In the US Military, a member of the  military police force. In a foreign country. Your base is on lock down  due to some unknown activity and you are assigned to guard the East gate  of your base. Whilst doing so, you come face to face with something  completely out of this world, literally. How would you cope at the time?  What would you do afterwards? How would it affect the rest of your  life? And then the following night another incident occurs that you  witness, how would that shatter your paradigms of reality? These are the actual events that happened to my guest M. Stacy Smith in 1980. During what has become one of the world's most famous UFO incidents. Called the  Rendlesham Forest incident. My guest was based on the Bentwaters,  base on England’s East Coast. Stacy has never before come forward publically to speak about his  experiences on those nights, but he is doing so for the very first time  with me. And what a story it is. . . .

Episode 32: The Hulk - A Haunting In Kansas
Can you imagine what it must feel like to move into your new dream home, only to discover really quickly that you are not alone in your house? You hear strange noises initially, that make you feel uncomfortable. But, you just brush if off as plumbing, or the house settling. But as time goes on events in your home intensify until you can not brush off the events happening. But, you have sunk all your available funds into your place and you cannot move. What would you do? How would you deal with this? How would it all make you feel? These are the questions that my guest Lauren faced after she and her partner moved into their new, dream home. These experiences will have you looking over your shoulder as you listen.

This week is the final episode in this two-part series on the famous  ‘Tic-Tac’ video and the things that were witnessed by members of the USS  Nimitz Strike force while they were on a routine training mission off the California coast. In the previous episode I introduced the events and talked a little about the time line and what precisely happened.  Then I introduced my first guest Garry Voorhis, who talked about his part in these experiences.  In this episode I introduce my second guest Patrick (PJ) Hughes who was on duty on the USS Nimitz at the time of these incidents, what his role was on the ship and what happened with him immediately after the plane containing the video footage landed. Finally both gentlemen talk about what they feel about what they experienced and their thoughts on what it might be. Their conclusions, may, or may not surprise you!

Welcome back to our second episode of our bonus Halloween episodes…. Tonight we will hear more stories from people’s experiences with the unknown, the unexplained…. With things that go bump in the night and haunt your dreams.  These experiences are real and happened to people just like you and me. In this episode though, the witnesses were too shy to share their stories themselves with you. So I am doing the honours for them.

Episode 28: Halloween Special - Southern Hemisphere
Halloween…. The night of the year when the veil between the living and those who have died is the thinnest.  In recognition of the importance of this special night to many communities and to the general public, especially in the USA. I have put together not one, but two bonus episodes of the podcast. Especially for Halloween Eve. One for the Southern hemisphere, where I live, as we are a day ahead of the Northern Hemisphere, and tomorrow's episode for Halloween Eve in the Northern hemisphere.  Two nights packed with genuine paranormal stories and ghostly encounters. Some will scare you, some will make you go aw. But all are very real. Along with just a little bit of fun, because, after all. It's Halloween!

Episode 27: David & The Star People - Part two
Last episode I briefly went over some definitions related to this  subject and I introduced my guest for these two episodes, David  Montgomery. David shared some of his experiences with Star People ,  some of  his experiences that he remembers. Experiences like going to some underground meeting chamber, and speaking  with groups of diverse species of Star People. He talked about the  androgynous being whose facial features he never saw, who met him at the  door to the underground chamber where he spoke with these beings. He  talked about beings around his bed at home.  In this final episode of my conversation with David, he discusses his experience with the Men-in-Black, including a very scary one, that I have never heard of happening before. It certainly scared David and made him feel very vulnerable.  He also discusses his thoughts on his experiences and what he has taken from them.

Halloween Promo
Halloween's rapidly approaching. The night of the year when the veil between the living and those in spirit is thinnest.

Be sure and tune in to both episodes.

Episode 26: David & The Star People
I don’t think there would be many people in my listening audience who  have not heard of UFOs, or perhaps even seen them for themselves. Far  off lights moving in the night skies, or even closer encounters. So I  haven’t really gotten into them so much in these past episodes. What we  have heard are Stacy’s experience with the Rendlesham forest /  Woodbridge & Bentwaters US Air Force Bases that were then active in  the UK. We have talked about the mysterious Men-in-Black. And we have  heard Suzy’s most interesting experiences. In this episode we continue the theme. I have as my guest a gentleman from Canada who has also been a UFO experiencer his entire life. In this first part of a two-part episode my guest David  Montgomery. talks about his encounters with UFO's and the occupants of the crafts. I also discuss a few of my own experiences that were similar to his.

Episode 23: Suzy & The Star People
Can you imagine what it would be like to be driving home one night, when all of a sudden your car is surrounded by this blinding bright light and as you struggle to keep conscious awareness, you look over and see the driver of your car is unconscious. With your last remaining consciousness, you are aware that your car is rising off the ground?. . . . Or you wake one night, bolt upright in bed. Only to realise that your bed is surround by beings in a bright light. Beings with large, black, almond shaped eyes. Or you have periods of missing time. These are events that happened to my guest Suzy Hansen. Author of the book "The Duel Soul Connection: The Alien Agenda For Human Advancement", head of New Zealand's professional UFO investigation group UFOCUS NZ. A respected researcher in her field and frequently requested speaker and Conferences here in New Zealand and overseas. And a life-long UFO experiencer.

Episode 22: The Men-In-Black
When you hear the words "The Men-in-Black" some of you will immediately, in your mind,  hear that catchy tune sung by Will Smith. Or think of the movie of the same name. For some people however, the fact that a movie was created from real-life events and beings does not escape notice, particularly if you have had the experience of meeting such beings. These meetings sometimes, but not always, follow encounters of whatever description, with UFOs or UAP (unidentified aerial phenomenon), which is the preferred term used these days.  We live in a very mysterious world, and there’s so very much that we  don’t understand about it. And, that is just on this planet…. But, we  also live in a universe that for those of us who are experiencers, know  is teaming with life. There are many things that happen here that just  don’t make any sort of sense at all.  Some say that The Men-in-Black belong in the don't make any sense category. What or who are they? Where do they come from? What is their purpose?   In this episode I explore the myths and the realities of these encounters and beings. I personally had an encounter with these beings the day after a close UFO encounter. I share my story with you in this episode, along with the experiences shared by many other people.

Episode 21: The Bentwaters Incident - A New Perspective.
Imagine being 19 years old. In the US Military, a member of the military police force. In a foreign country. Your base is on lock down due to some unknown activity and you are assigned to guard the East gate of your base. Whilst doing so, you come face to face with something completely out of this world, literally. How would you cope at the time? What would you do afterwards? How would it affect the rest of your life? And then the following night another incident occurs that you witness, how would that shatter your paradigms of reality? These are the actual events that happened to my guest M. Stacy Smith in 1980. During what has become one of the world's most famous UFO incidents. Called the  Rendlesham Forest incident. My guest was based on the Bentwaters,  base on England’s East Coast.  Stacy has never before come forward publically to speak about his experiences on those nights, but he is doing so for the very first time with me. And what a story it is. . . .

Episode 20: Listeners Speak.
A little while ago I received an email from a listener in the United  States, his name was Rob. He initially emailed me stating that he had an  experience when he was visiting New Zealand, that he would like to  share and get my opinion on.  So, he shared with me a story of an experience  that he had with the Patupaiarehe – or the New Zealand Fairy folk,  during a visit to the Waitomo district,  in the North Island of New Zealand. It is a long, but a very  interesting experience, and he also has a photo of the spot he felt he  was being observed from, that shows something anomalous! The photos are  on, this episode’s page of the podcasts website.   I also share feedback sent in from listeners like yourself, and share a little about myself, your host. As I had not done this when the podcast was started 20 episodes ago to round off this my first season of this podcast.

Episode 19: A Forest Encounter
Forestry is one of New Zealand's main export industries, and so we have many, many small and large crews working in the the bush, as we say here in New Zealand. Very often these work sites are deep into the forest lands and quite isolated from near by towns or cities. Some even hours of driving away. Their very geographical isolation causes these groups, who generally camp on the worksite in these cases, to become a tight, close knit working whanau, or family.  Sometimes the world of us humans and the world of the Elemental, interdimensional beings clash, as in this case. What happens then? Is this a good experience for the human, or is it possibly not?  And what would you do if you were in such a situation, where you came  across such a being? How would you react? What would you do? And, how would this be experienced for you? My guest in this episode has requested to remain anonymous and I have respected their wish. This guest shares their experiences with us, that happened whilst they were working deep within the heart of a specific area of the New Zealand forest.

Episode 18: Music Of The Plants - Part Two
In the first part of Music of the plants, my guest Gary Cook answered a question a member of my  Walking the Shadowlands Facebook group had for him about the Patupaiarehe,  (the New Zealand fairy folk), from  his previous appearance on the podcast. Then he took us on a gentle  stroll, talking about the wonderful world of the plants, and trees  around us. He talked about ‘Tree Blindness’, what that is, and how the  term came about. He talked about  tree energies and how  they worked together, to both support each other, and humanity as a  whole. We also had snippets of beautiful, and sort of haunting music a  tangelo tree, and a pounamu or New Zealand greenstone, created. Yes, you  heard that correctly. That they created. . . . In this episode we conclude our discussion with Gary explaining about music of the plants. How this music is obtained from them, and how the specific electrical technology came about, to be able to do so. He also shares snippets of music created by these plants and shows an example of how they respond to music being played to them, but creating matching harmonies.

Episode 17: Music Of The Plants
In this two-part episode my former guest Gary Cook returns to talk with us about his ongoing research with plants and how we and nature are totally interconnected on so many levels. He discusses how plants communicate with each other, as has been discovered in recent scientific research.  Gary is a very well known New Zealand and Internationally published author, favourite guest lecturer and documentary maker.  And, he talks in his beautiful, rambling way, sharing his experiences as he talks, about how nature is such a vital part of our life and how we as a species have become plant blind. How we rarely even notice the plants that are around us any more. He discusses how plants not only communicate with each other, but can communicate with us as well.

Episode 16: UFO's in the Night Sky - A Conversation with Bonnie
Imagine, you are a young woman, in your early 30's who has just faced a series of three life threatening strokes. So bad, that you have had to completely learn to talk again. Then imagine that one night when you are at home healing and  struggling to recover your literal voice, that you get this compulsive urge to go outside and look at the night skies.  You don't know why you have this urge, but it is utterly compelling and so you go outside and look up at the night skies. . . . And that is the beginning of almost nightly visitations of unexplained lights and crafts moving in the night skies. How would you feel if this happened to you? Would you feel like you were going crazy? Like it was some kind of side effect from your strokes? Or even worse, that you might be having another? This is my guest Bonnie's on going experiences. Bonnie lives in Texas, in the USA and kindly shares her experiences with us. She talks about how they have changed her life and how she is able to capture these craft in photos almost every single night.

Episode 15: Glitch in the Matrix - A Holographic Reality?
In this episode I take a close look at what have commonly become referred to as "glitches in the matrix" after that famous Matrix movie starring Keanu Reeves. These are experiences that have left people scratching their heads and wondering what just happened to them. With no logical explanation that can be found for it.  I take a very brief excursion into the world of holograms, and the holographic universe theory. Of quantum physics and the brightest brains in these areas in the world, who suggest that this world is, in fact, a holographic reality. I look at the Mandela Effect and how living in a holographic reality that has parallel dimensions could possibly explain this. And I  have experiences that people like you have had, that they simply cannot explain. As Elon Musk says: “There is a ONE in a billion chance that we might NOT be living in a simulation.”

Episode 14: Paranormal Investigations with James Gilberd
Old buildings, deserted for many years. Or relatively new buildings, both homes and businesses, or medical institutions and even land, have been known to have ghostly inhabitants. Inhabitants that can scare and disturb the people who currently live, or work in these places. Because of this, there are a rare group of people who make it their mission to seek out such places, such haunted locations. There can be many reasons for this.  My  guest tonight James Gilberd., is one such person. I have been following James' Paranormal Investigation group (Spooked: New Zealand Strange Occurrences Society) and page for some time, partly because of professional courtesy, as I also run my own paranormal investigation group, called Shadowlands Paranormal Investigations. And, simply because I like and really appreciate his approach to this work and his dry sense of humour.  James talks about his experiences as a paranormal investigator and about the book he co-authored with Dr. Jo Davy, about his groups experiences.

This episode is a wonderful journey into the mythical and magical realms, with my guest who is a very well known New Zealand and Internationally published author, favourite guest lecturer and documentary maker. Where he beautifully weaves stories of his interaction with the New Zealand Fairy folk, or Patupaiarehe and his research into the subject.  Gary Cook discusses his own personal experiences with the Patupaiarehe and shares some very interesting encounters that people have either discussed with him or sent into him via his website.

Episode 12: The Patupaiarehe
Supernatural beings are a part of all cultures world wide. There are not many, if any, cultures in this world that don’t have a version of these inter-dimensional beings. They go by many names – dependent on where in the world they are found. But, there are not only one variety of these beings, there are many. Here are some names, a few of them go by. In Ireland and the British Isles, they are called the Fae, Fairies, Pixies, Leprechauns, the Seelie or Unseelie. . . .  Here in New Zealand there are two basic types called the Patupaiarehe which are land based beings and the Pona-Turi which are sea based beings. But, dependent on where in New Zealand they are found, they go by different names. They are also called Patuparehe, Paiarehe and Parehe, Turehu, Korakorako, Tahurangi and Heketor.  In this episode I will cover the history of New Zealand interaction with these beings and actual interactions people here have had with these folk. Both historical and recent.

Episode 11: The Moehau Man Continued / Big Cats
In this episode I conclude the conversation with my guest Marc Morrell and his experiences with the Moehau Man. Then I’ll discuss briefly Anomalous Big Cat  (ABC) sightings in New Zealand. There have been very many of these – which continue to this day. Big cats are not native to New Zealand. Actually, it was sightings reported in the New Zealand mainstream media in the past couple of months, of this huge cat,  that actually was the reason these New Zealand based cryptid episodes were created to begin with. Plus, I briefly discuss a couple of other lesser known, but documented New Zealand cryptids….

Episode 10: The Moehau Man
Throughout the world there are stories and legends of huge, hairy, ape-like creatures that have persisted over the centuries, through re-tellings of cultural myths and legends. Also ,of actual reported sightings of such creatures. These beings go by many different names. In North America, they are called Sasquatch, or the more common name of Bigfoot. Across the ditch in Australia, they are called the Yowie. In the Himalayas and parts of Asia they are called the Yeti, or the Meh Teh. So many different names for the same creature, or family of creatures. New Zealand with our geographical isolation is not immune from such a being. We call ours the Moehau Man. He also has other names in New Zealand, dependent on the part of the country he is seen in. Names such as Maero, Matau, Tuuhourangi, Taongina, and Rapuwai. In this episode I explore the myths of this creature. Hear actual reported sightings, and finally I interview a guest Marc Copell who is has had actually experiences with these creatures and is now in the process of creating a documentary about them.

Episode 9: The Taniwha
Every country in the world. Every culture in the world, has their stories of unexplained monsters. Monsters that can be very dangerous to humans, malevolent, nasty. Also of others who are more benevolent, even protective of groups of people they see as under their care. But are these stories merely myths and legends? Or do they in fact, have a basis in reality? In this episode we explore a very well known New Zealand monster, called the Taniwha. Even New Zealand children can tell you stories about the Taniwha that inhabit our oceans, our waterways. That dwell in caves high in the back country mountains. We hear people's actual experiences with these beings, historical and recent.... Including one my own mother had as a teenager with a group of friends in the mighty Waikato river.

Skin walkers, ee naaldloosh, bear walkers, ishkitini.

In the Navajo cultures they are the skin walkers or ee naaldloosh.  Very real, very malevolent beings with the ability to harm and bring misfortune to their victims. In these next two episodes we will be hearing people's experiences with these beings. Along with an interview of a native Navajo person, whose voice and identity has been hidden as it is forbidden to talk about these beings for fear of attracting them to you.

Episode 5: Things That Go Bump! In The Night
Ghosts, spirits, hants, poltergiest, specters, all names for people that have died, but for one reason or another chose to remain around this realm of existence. Some do so because they have unfinished business. Some because they fear to move on, perhaps because of mistakes they made in this life, or how their life ended.....  But, for whatever reason these beings remain they sometimes haunt the living, often creating fear and terror in those who experience them. In this episode we hear experiences of people just like you or I, who have been witnesses to such events. Some of these stories are touching. Some will definitely leave a chill up your spine.

Reincarnation.... Rebirth.... Soul Transmitigation.... Metempsychosis.... All words for a belief system that has been around pretty much since man was able to create records. But what is it precisely? Is it real? If it is, then what does it mean for us in this life? How would knowing this is real alter our day to day lives? Alter the way we interact and react with people around us everyday?  In this episode we take a look at different belief systems in the world that subscribe to the notion of reincarnation as a basic tenant of their belief systems. We will also hear of children's reincarnation stories, particularly following the 911 tragedy.

There are people who have died, often traumatically, but were able to be revived. Very often these people have unusual experiences before being revived.
