This Sunday (2/27/11) busy busy busy

For anyone interested, I will be incredibly busy this Sunday; however I invite anyone reading to join me.  Starting from 3-6pm EST at www.strangefrequenciesradio.net you can catch Jason Korbus, Robyn McKinney and myself doing our weekly show.

The show kicks off with our free talk segment. This is where we gab about the latest weird and bizarre news pulled from headlines around the world, get into a discussion about some topic, paranormal or otherwise, and maybe even open the phone lines to get your opinions on the issues of the day.

At 4pm Eastern we’ll talk to Tom Biscardi. In August of 2008, two law enforcement officers from Georgia claimed to be in possession of a Bigfoot body they found while hunting in the woods. They released a series of videos on Youtube which went viral, and even had a live press conference on CNN. It was all a hoax. There was no Bigfoot body. One of the people at the center of the fallout was a Bigfoot researcher named Tom Biscardi, who claims he was not only duped, but that his group, Searching For Bigfoot, was swindled out of $50,000. Mr. Biscardi, a Bigfoot hunter with over 35 years of experience, joins us today to bring to light what he calls the true, never before told story of the events behind the event known as “Bigfoot Black Friday” as chronicled in the newly released film “Anatomy of a Bigfoot Hoax.” To find out more information, visit: WWW.SEARCHINGFORBIGFOOT.COM

It should seriously be a good time; you don’t want to miss it. 

From 7-8pm EST I will be a guest on Behind the Paranormal with Paul and Ben Eno and you can check them out at www.behindtheparanormal.com.   We will be discussing how I went from true believer to skeptic, the “theories” and methodology of ghost hunters and criticisms of western science and epistemology. 

From 8-9pm EST I will be returning to L.E.P. Radio over at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/lepradio to talk about healthy skepticism, the history of paranormal investigation and its reliability. 

Hopefully you all join me, if you are unable I will post direct download links when they become available.

Jason Hawes, an Apology Would be Nice

The other day I wrote an article called “Jason Hawes, How Dare You…” where I criticized a comment Hawes made live on a blogtalk radio show. During this show Jason Hawes of Ghost Hunters fame claimed that TAPS is the reason the historical Fort Mifflin is still open. Just to recap what was said, here is an exact quote.

Jason Hawes: “Fort Mifflin, we did multiple events for them that we were able to give them enough money to keep the place open, so that people and investigators were able to go there and spend time and check out this location, this place wouldn’t be open if we hadn’t done that. “

Radio Host: “That’s right, I believe the TAPS home team recently did a fund raising event there at Fort Mifflin, is that correct?”

Jason Hawes: “Yes, absolutely.”

This upset quite a few people, because the effort to save Fort Mifflin cannot be pin pointed to one person or organization. It is open because of numerous donations and charity work done by all sorts of groups, not just paranormal related. In fact Lorraine Irby, office manager at Fort Mifflin made a comment on this subject.

“No one individual, organization, or volunteer can take credit. It has been a collective effort and hard work by so many wonderful people! Fort Mifflin is saying Thank you to all!”

Anyway after Hawes made this comment, Strange Frequencies Radio, the radio show I am a co-host on felt it necessary to go live and talk about this situation. We gave out the studio phone number and invited Jason Hawes to call in and talk about this comment he made. We received phone calls from a lot of individuals but Hawes never called, just as we all knew he wouldn’t. The show can be heard here www.para-help.com/sfrbobby/sfr_jason_hawes.mp3  However we know Hawes listened to the show because today there was a response to it on Jason’s facebook.

“To respond to those who wait for any little comment that you can take and run with in hopes to stir trouble,
It has always been a combined effort to keep these locations available to the public and investigators. Its not all because of “TAPS” it is from everyone including the fans who spend their money on auctions, events, merchandise, etc etc.
“TAPS” has helped raise a lot of money for many locations and charities.
Some of these locations and their management have stated to us and the event companies who hold the events and manage the event,
“We would not be able to keep the doors open if it was not for these events.”
Take that and run with it like you see fit.
If you don’t like me, I am OKAY with this, but if thats the fact then please don’t bother wasting either of our time by coming to this site.
To waste your time by coming to this page to post your negative comments and or attacks, I and many others feel is childish and in poor taste.
Show comes back the 23rd, you don’t like me or it, then just don’t watch.”

Well I would like to say, Jason, this isn’t at all what you said, in fact that sounds very similar to what we’ve been saying. What you said can be heard here http://para-help.com/sfrbobby/jason_hawes_fort.mp3 . If you would have said what you are claiming you said in your article, we never would have said a thing. Also, notice how Jason talks about his show and not to watch it if we do not like him. Well I haven’t watched Ghost Hunter in about 5 years, so that’s not an issue, but I love how you tried to change the subject. No one ever mentioned your show, the topic was about how you or TAPS are not and were never responsible for keeping Fort Mifflin open. Be a man and apologize to the thousands of people you have insulted, many of which were probably your fans. Thank you.
