Filmmaker James Fox's latest documentary The Phenomenon has been all the talk among the UFO community since its release to video-on-demand on October 6, 2020. Its a very well-written, well-researched and well-produced documentary. However, it doesn't really present any new evidence about UFOs or provide the viewer with any ground-breaking revelations. On this episode of ParaReality, co-host Eric and I will discuss this documentary. If you haven't seen it yet, you need to listen to this podcast first. It may just help you to make up your mind.

War of the Worlds-1938
This is the original broadcast of Orson Welles' War of the Worlds radio play. Originally airing in 1938 this radio play caused mass panic across the country because many people thought it was real, despite the fact that it was announced as a work of fiction prior to the radio play airing. The sound effects are superb for this day and age and the actors presented the story so realistically that it helped to fuel the fire of listeners thinking the entire thing was real.Please enjoy this radio play in its entirety, as it originally aired back in 1938.

History of Witches & Halloween
On tonight’s journey into the realm of ParaReality, I’m going to take you, my loyal listeners, on a journey to centuries ago, back when the main religion was of a more...natural thing. We refer to it now as Paganism because that religion didn't have a belief in only one god. It also was a more earth-based religion, celebrating the seasons and what they meant to the people, instead of celebrating "holidays" and concentrating on gift-giving. This religion is known today as Wicca, and its growing in popularity. So tonight, we'll take a time-travelling journey back to the beginning of Wicca and learn about its association with Halloween. We'll also take a look at the Witch and how she/he has been linked with this holiday, and how they have celebrated it throughout the centuries. We may also even learn a spell or two!

But somehow all that changed and people are no longer afraid. I’m talking about Vampires, people! I’ll be taking you on a journey to look at the changing Vampire and how they have gone from fiendish ghoul to modern day heroes, at least as far as Hollywood is concerned. Then, I’ll tell you about the real-life Vampires. To learn more, you’ll have to Turn On, Tune In & Find Out!

Ask Sandman 2020
When ParaReality was becoming popular, I was receiving a lot of email from listeners who were asking me questions about the paranormal, UFOs, conspiracy theories and other related stuff. At some point, they even began to ask me my opinion on things like politics, education and healthcare. That was probably because of the popular segment on the podcast that I called "News of the Strange," where I read strange and weird news stories from all over the world and then gave my opinion on them. Often times, these stories were non-paranormal in nature. I was receiving so many emails that I couldn't answer them all in a timely manner, so I came up with the idea to dedicate an entire episode of the podcast to doing nothing but answering emails. I called it "Ask Sandman," and I only intended for it to be a single episode. However, I didn't anticipate the response that I got to it. It seemed that the listeners loved it. In fact, they loved it so much that I eventually made the "Ask Sandman" episodes a regular thing. Those of you who have followed the podcast for a long time know that I took a little break from things for a while. When I came back on the air, I changed things up a lot and the "Ask Sandman" episodes were put on the shelf. So, it's been a while since I've dedicated an entire episode to answering listener emails. In fact, I can't remember the last time that I did it. Well, I thought that it was time that I brought "Ask Sandman" out of retirement, so on this episode of the podcast, I'm devoting the entire show to doing nothing but answering listener emails. I never really realized how much I've missed doing this until I began recording it. It's fun and different. It gives me a chance to really connect to those who listen, yet at the same time, keeps within the overall theme of the podcast. I have reached into the email bag and brought out 8 listener emails. There's one or two that I have already addressed, but the majority of them, I haven't had the opportunity to get to. I've got some very thought-provoking questions that have been asked me, along with a couple of very strange ones that are a mystery - maybe one that the listeners can help me solve. I've even got one from an old friend of the podcast - one that I haven't heard from in a very long time! So sit back, grab your favorite beverage and maybe a snack and enjoy this very special episode of ParaReality!

Occult Beliefs of Henrich Himmler
One of the top Nazi officials was Heinrich Himmler, the man in charge of the dreaded SS, and Himmler was known to engage in the occult. He followed the paganism of pre-Christian Germany, something that was strongly associated with the German nationalism of the Nazi regime, and actively involved with black magic. He tried to practice necromancy, the magical art of raising people from the dead, and frequently held seances to try to contact the dead. The center of his occultic life was a place called Wewelsburg Castle, in the black forests of northern Germany. Here, he and many other Nazi officials engaged in their occultic practices. Himmler wanted SS recruits to think and live as their ancestors had. So, on July 1, 1935, Himmler founded a new SS research institute to reconstruct all aspects of primeval German culture. Officially, the organization was known as the “Deutsche Ahnenerbe” Studiengesellschaft für Geistesurgeschichte—meaning “German Ancestral Heritage” Society for the Study of the History of Primeval Ideas. But most soon began calling it the “Ahnenerbe.” They had the strange purpose of finding “evidence” that linked German ancestry to the Aryan master race, who were believed to have come from long-lost advanced civilizations. Ahnenerbe research included everything from archaeological expeditions, to witchcraft, to psychic research, and macabre human experiments. Himmler, who despised the Judaeo-Christian religion, hoped to obtain pagan incantations and rituals to be used as part of his planned pagan religion. Later he set up the SS Witches Division which investigated the persecution of pagan wise women at the hands of Jews and Catholics. A team of seventeen SS officers worked secretly for a unit called the ‘Special Assignment H’ unit (H for Haxen, or ‘witches’), carrying out a project that was ordered directly by Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler, and overseen by SS officer Rudolf Levin. The SS Witches Division was set up to try to find evidence that witches had existed and had been hunted to death by the Jews in a twisted attempt to justify the Nazi hatred of Jewish people These are just a couple of Henirich Himmler's many occult and paranormal interests. He was obsessed with re-writing German history and making it something more akin to his own liking. Was Himmler crazy, or worse - did he want to turn himself into a living god?

Bruce Lee Conspiracies
On June 20, 1973, while Bruce Lee was in Hong Kong he was at the home of fellow actress Betty Ting Pei. They were going over the script for the upcoming film Game of Death, which Pei had a role in. Bruce experienced a headache and asked Pei for a painkiller, so she gave him Equagesic, a combination of Aspirin and a tranquilizer. He took the medication and laid down to take a nap. Later on, when Pei tried to awaken him, she could not. She called Bruce Lee's producer, Raymond Chow, who was also unsuccessful in waking him. Chow called his personal physician, but he too, could not revive Bruce Lee. An ambulance was then called and Bruce was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The strangest things about Bruce Lee's death was not only that he looked completely normal with no visible signs of injury, but that he was an extremely fit and healthy man. The autopsy report suggested that his brain had swollen 13% while he slept. This happened due to an allergic reaction to the Equagesic. The autopsy report surmised that the tranquilizer in the medication, called meprobmate, was the culprit. The official cause of death was listed as "death by misadventure". In other words, he took a risk voluntarily and died in an accidental manner. The "misadventure" in this case was called cerebral edema. Whenever you have a beloved international movie star like Bruce Lee die under mysterious circumstances, there are bound to be a lot of conspiracy theories surrounding it. Bruce Lee's death is certainly no exception. July 20, 2020 is the 47th anniversary of Bruce Lee's death and I thought that it would be fitting to take a look at some of the top conspiracy theories behind it.

Nazi World Ice Theory
Nazis came to believe a lot of strange and horrific ideas as they built up their Third Reich and attacked the world. One of the weirdest was the theory about the creation of the universe that Hitler and other top Nazis promoted called the World Ice Theory or Global Cosmology. This obviously discredited concept was developed by the Austrian engineer and inventor Hans Horbiger, who the Nazis viewed as one of their "acceptable" scientists. In a 1912 book, he essentially claimed that ice is the basic element in all cosmic events. In fact, ice moons, ice planets and "global ether" controlled the development of the universe. How did Horbiger arrive at such conclusions? It wasn't through scientific research, but rather, it was through a dream. To learn more, you'll have to Turn On, Tune In & Find Out!

Floyd Incident: Was It Crisis Acting?
OK, I know that I am probably going to receive a lot of negativity about this episode, but I feel that I need to call attention to this matter to let everyone know that there are people out there who actually believe this was "crisis acting." The "evidence" for this is weak, at best, and it just goes to show that there are people who seek to take advantage of situations like this in order to gain their 15 minutes of fame or promote chaos and discord. I want it to be clear that I AM NOT PROMOTING RACISM, VIOLENCE, PROTESTING OR THAT THE GEORGE FLOYD INCIDENT WAS CRISIS ACTING. I feel that in some small way, that I am doing my part in exposing what's really going on. This is a conspiracy theory that is circulating around the internet. Conspiracy theories are a large part of the subject matter of my podcast and I feel that this is relevant to the Floyd situation. Alternative news agencies and independent reporters are attempting to "wake up" the people to what really happened to George Floyd. There’s a theory going around that George Floyd isn’t really dead and the police officers who supposedly killed him aren’t actually police officers. They, and everyone involved in the event, are crisis actors who have been paid by some unknown agency (probably the Illuminati or New World Order) to stage the entire thing and create the chaos and discord that we are now going through. Is this really true, though? Could something like this really be pulled off? Well if you ask Alex Jones and his followers, the answer is a resounding yes. For their answer, they’ll point to the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012. But tell me how well that theory worked out for Alex Jones!On tonight’s journey into the realm of ParaReality, I’m going to take you, my loyal listeners on a secret journey into the world of the George Floyd death, where we will investigate some of the claims that the whole thing was staged by crisis actors. I’ll present the so-called “evidence” and you to let you make up your own mind as to whether or not it’s true. Then, I’ll tell you what I think about the whole thing.

Nazi Hollow Earth
If you’ve been a long-time listener to this podcast, you’ll know that I’m fascinated by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. In fact, I’ve done about half a dozen episodes about them over the years. And, they always get good ratings, so it would seem that I’m not the only person who’s fascinated by them. If you’ve ever taken the time to really investigate the Nazis, you’ve probably found that they had a lot of extremely strange beliefs. In fact, they went to great lengths to prove these beliefs were true and not just some crazy fantasy. Unfortunately, just about all of them were crazy fantasies. Mainly the crazy fantasies of one man – Henrich Himmler, Hitler’s head of the SS. To me, it seems that Himmler’s primary goal within the Third Reich was to completely rewrite German history and replace it with what HE personally wanted it to be. In other words, he wanted to make Germany some kind of otherworldly, ethereal, esoteric nation that was destined for world domination. On tonight’s journey into the realm of ParaReality, I’m going to take you, my loyal listeners on a secret journey into the world of Nazi Germany. Specifically, we will be journeying into the realm of Nazi science and together, we will investigate the Nazi Hollow Earth theory. To learn more, you’ll have to Turn On, Tune In & Find Out!

Top 10 COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories
Tonight's journey into the realm of ParaReality takes us back to what, I hope, is the last journey that we'll be taking down the COVID-19 trail, or at least the end of THIS trail. It's looking like there'll be another round of this coming in the fall, but we can't be 100% sure of that...YET. I've devoted several episodes of this podcast to COVID-19; the first was before COVID-19 was COVID-19. Back then it was simply called 2019-nCoV. I've speculated on its origins, how it's spread, how bad it actually is, and how bad it's going to get. Some things I've been correct about and some wrong, but at the end of the day, I hope that I've kept you informed as to what this deadly virus actually is and how you can protect yourself from it. So, on what I hope is our final journey on the COVID-19 path, I'm going to take us down a trail of conspiracy. There's no lack of theories surrounding this deadly novel coronavirus. Some actually make sense while other are so outlandish that there's no way any normal, sane person could have made it up, yet alone believe in it. It's enough to make your head spin. Bu don't fear, dear listener, because I have sorted through a ton of disinformation, conjecture and downright lies and tonight I'll be counting down my top 10 list of COVID-19 conspiracy theories.

Viruses in the Permafrost
We all know that the Earth is warming up. It doesn't matter if you believe in Global Warming or not - the facts are the facts. Set you personal beliefs aside. If you take a look at the facts, you cannot ignore that the climate is changing, and not necessarily in a good way. The warming of the planet is causing more than just temperature change. The ice is also thawing and scientists are sounding the alarm that we could see the re-emergence of ancient pathogens that haven't been active for, quite literally, thousands of years. These viruses have been locked away in glaciers and permafrost and could suddenly wake up if they thaw. Considering our current pandemic, this is a scary thought and, one that could be on the verge of taking place sooner, rather than later.

COVID-19 Facts vs Fiction
The COVID-19 virus is sweeping its way across the world, placing the planet in a state of chaos. As this pandemic spreads its way across the United States, causing fear and panic, information about what, exactly it is, how to protect ourselves from it and what caused it, is constantly changing. This is making it extremely difficult to stay well-informed so that you can protect yourself from this potentially deadly virus. Thanks to the information age and fake news, it is also very difficult to discern fact from fiction. Even the doctors and nurses at local hospitals are unsure what is truth and what isn't. If they are finding it difficult to navigate truth from fiction during this chaos, then how can the American public be expected to know what to do? I am a medical professional, who specializes in Emergency Preparedness and as a result, I'm on the front lines of fighting COVID-19, so I know how difficult it is to sort through the ever-changing information in order to pick out what is fact and what isn't. There are all kinds of rumors about what COVID-19 is, how it spreads and how you can protect yourself from it. Just some of the rumors are: 1) you can drink enough water to flush it out of your system 2) you can protect yourself by wearing a mask or bandanna around your face 3) you can catch the virus if someone who has it touches a counter top, then you touch it Of course, all of these things are false and I'll explain why on the podcast. The power to protect ourselves from this virus comes from knowledge - correct knowledge. That begins with calling this virus by its correct name.

Epstein Conspiracy Part 2
The conspiracies surrounding the supposed "death" of billionaire Jeffery Epstein continue to grow. Now it seems that money in his bank account is being withdrawn and shifted around by millions of dollars. Millions!

It is located just off the coast of Saint Thomas and is part of the US Virgin Island chain. A recent visit to his island by a couple of podcast hosts revealed that Little Saint James is is pristine condition, as if someone is still living there. Is it Jeffery Epstein or simply the caretakers of the island? There's also some sort of strange "temple" on the island that isn't exactly what it appears to be. Why is it there and what was it used for? Join me and my co-host Eric as we attempt to find out the answers to all of these questions and maybe a few more. Turn On, Tune In & Find Out!

In case you don’t watch TV or live under a rock or something, you’re probably very well aware that there is a new respiratory virus that has originated in China’s Wuhan Provence. Its called 2019-nCoV, which is short for "2019 novel coronavirus. Its rapidly crossing borders and has spread to South Korea, Japan, Nepal, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and the United States. This thing is dangerous, people, and we don’t even really know how it got started, what the vector is or exactly how it is transmitted. What we do know is that its dangerous, spreads quickly and can be deadly. So, why am I devoting a podcast episode to this virus? Well, it’s because there could be something sinister at work here. This virus might not be something that “just naturally occurred.” This quite possibly could be a man-made virus that has either accidentally made its way into the civilian world or been deliberately released into the population as some sort of devious experiment or attempt to kill off a portion of the world’s population. What makes me think this? Well, you’ll just have to Turn On, Tune In & Find Out!
