Paradelphia Radio: Ep 307 - Origin Story?
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few decades you've heard of Batman, the Caped Crusader who dishes out vigilante justice to the likes of the Joker, the Penguin and any other hood who dares cause trouble in Gotham City. Batman's origin story in which he witnesses the murder of his parents is both tragic and empowering but is that really the true origin story? If you ask any fan of DC Comics you'd get a hearty "yes" for an answer but what if you asked an archeologist who studies ancient Mayan culture? Why might you ask such a person? Tonight we discuss what may just be the true origin of "the Batman" and it is far more ancient and violent than you might have imagined. Toxic Radio True Origin of Batman?

Paradelphia Radio: Ep 305 - Scaredy Pants
Are they aliens, interdimensional beings, unknown cryptids or pants off doing a dance off? This week we look at one of the more recent new creatures of the night, the Fresno Nightcrawlers.

Do you like Italian? No....not pasta fagioli and bruschetta. I'm talking about a good old fashioned (say late 60s, early 70s) Italian gorefest?

Paradelphia: Episode 298 - Guiding Light
If someone told you that they remembered being someone else in a different life, remembered details about a family hundreds of miles away, that they knew intimate jokes and nicknames known only within that distant family, would you believe them or would you think they somehow used the internet to research the family in question in order to perpetrate a hoax? Now, how about if the person telling you all this was 4 yrs old? Younger than that? What would you think then? This week we bring back researcher/author James Matlock to discuss a book he co-authored called "I Saw A Light and Came Here: Children's Experiences of Reincarnation" and discuss some compelling cases of very young children.....toddlers really, who knew way, way too much about the lives of other, totally unrelated people living a world away. Amazingly the best proof of reincarnation appears to lie with the youngest among us....if only we're smart enough to listen.

Paradelphia: Episode 296 - Time Bandits
Does the arrow of time always go in a straight line from past to present to future or can we skip ahead much like a rock skittering across the surface of a pond? Tonight Rick describes a recent incident of missing time that happened to him while driving on Rt. 422 in Southeastern PA where 7 minutes and miles of roadway just seemed to......vanish. Toxic Mike joins Rick in the studio for a trippy discussion of the nature of time and just how surprisingly malleable it really is. Also, the guys discuss a report released just tonight by the NY Times stating that the US government doesn't believe recent UFO sightings are extraterrestrial....but.....how they come to that opinion isn't clear.

Paradelphia Radio: Ep. 295 - Blue Blood
The color blue is often associated with the King of Rock, Elvis Presley. You have songs like Blue Suede Shoes and Blue Christmas, movies like Blue Hawaii and the blue alien light that lit up the small house where he was born in 1935 and then proceeded to follow him around nearly his entire life. Wait. WHAT? Yes....The King was a true believer in many paranormal topics but none quite as much as UFO's. Aside from the aforementioned "Christ-like" glow around the Tupelo, MS house where he was born Elvis had many sightings, near abductions and claimed that "he wasn't from here" to close friends. This week we dig into this strange but strangely ignored part of the life of one of America's icons of rock and roll. Also, Paranews, updates on Blobfest 2021 (coming soon) and a shout out to a longtime friend of the show who's hospital bound but will hopefully be on the mend soon.

Paradelphia Radio: Ep. 294 - Unhappily Ever After
We all grew up listening to and watching fairy tales. It's practically a right of passage to hear stories like Cinderella, Pinnochio, The Frog Prince and all the rest, but was it all a lie? Did we get a whitewashed, Disney-fied version of these tales of perseverance and bravery? This week we take a look at the truth behind some of our most cherished childhood fairy tales and well....it's not pretty. In most cases, the tales of self mutilation, torture and beastiality make Game of Thrones sound like a bedtime story. Also this week we dig into some recent strange ParaNews and more!

Paradelphia Radio: Ep. 293 - Ring of Truth
For close to 70 years J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece of fantasy fiction "Lord of the Rings" trilogy has been read, watched and adored by millions. But what if it wasn't just fantasy thought up by Tolkien's fantastic imagination? What if the epic struggle for Middle Earth was really a retelling of the true history of ancient Europe of 6500 yrs ago? And what if none other than J.R.R. Tolkien was the one who said so? This week we dig into the idea that LOTR and its sequels are taken directly from the pages of a book read by Tolkien deep in the bowels of the Oxford University library that tells the true history of early man's struggle for power against real life subspecies of the human race.
