The Jeff And The Jer Reunite For Paratopia Presents Talk Story


para_radioDate: Monday, Sept. 23rd
Time: 9:00pm (EST)/6:00pm (PST) & the Paratopia youtube channel & live on Google Hangouts On-Air


Paratopia Presents: Talk Story is a new and unique television-style internet talk show that asks one question each episode and explores it to its end. And we kick it off with this question: Can pregnancy and childbirth be gateways to extraordinary activity commonly compartmentalized as paranormal, psi, spiritual, or alien?

Jeff Ritzmann and Jeremy Vaeni are joined by Deb Kauble, Karen Totten, Adam Currie, and Debbie-Anne Currie, who will talk about their very different experiences with this. Then we’ll ask Dr. Tyler Kokjohn what changes are taking place in the body that could be contributing factors, and to Joe Gooch about the personal anti-structural aspects and beyond. Perhaps another mystery guest will appear as well. Who knows? It’s a mystery and we do love a good mystery.

The Argument Against Hypnosis Revisited (A Pictorial For Dummies)


Since this is for dummies, needless to say it’s a visual. I’m saying it, though, because it is for dummies.

The argument for using hypnosis as a memory retrieval technique usually goes something like this: Whycome we can’t keep using it? It works.

Oh, it works all right, Chester. As a behavior influencing technique.

First up, please visit this link to the Renegade Hypnotist.

I don’t know what’s so renegade about this abhorrent behavior. Seems like it’s been going on for a mighty long time.

Then there’s….

On a saner note….

Then there’s….

Now let’s take a look at what happens when you apply a behavior influencing technique to memory retrieval.


Uh-oh. Looks like…

‘Paratopia Presents: Talk Story’ To Premiere Monday 23rd!

Paratopia LogoParatopia Presents: Talk Story
World Premiere
Monday Sept. 23rd
9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST
You can watching it live right here, on the Paratopia Presents: Talk Story Youtube channel, and on Google+. Or if you’re feeling bold, come join us in the Google Hangout chat room.

I quite podcasting because I felt like there was nothing left for me to say and I’d been in that medium through 7 different shows. Also, the guest pool had thinned to where, really, there are to this day only a handful of names left I’d like to interview. But the technology has finally caught up with my ambitions to do an internet TV show that can include guests, co-hosts, and viewers alike. Really, the best of all Jeff Ritzmann and I did with Paratopia and Paratopia Live in one package. No more star host–just kind of a ringmaster who keeps the structure intact. No more guests on a pedestal–just people in a virtual room working out real issues. Democratized TV where the viewers are also the guests and the hosts. And down the line if viewers have an idea for an episode they’d like to commandeer, we can make that happen.

I can’t pass all of that up but I’m not sure I can do a weekly, either. So, for now, these will be once-a-month 90 minute specials. They will be free. And they will live on the youtube channel, which you will be able access right here.

Not only will the format be different than the aforementioned podcasts, but the way we approach doing a show will be unique in that we will hone in on one particular topic and stick with it, not veering off into other territory. Usually, I will start off talking with the guest and then open it up to questions from the panel and, finally, if we have time, we’ll discuss amongst ourselves what we just heard. However, some episodes–like the premiere–will be panel discussions from the word go.

And what will our first episode be about? What could have pulled me back in? Whelp, on Paratopia, we were fond of wondering aloud if the so-called ‘alien abduction’ experience took place in an altered state of consciousness. A while back a friend of mine told me about how paranormal/psi/spiritual shenanigans came into her life around the time she got pregnant. Another woman told me this recently. I’m thinking it doesn’t get more altered state of consciousness than having another human growing inside of you. So, how fitting is it that we birth this show into the world by taking a look at a subject I’ve never seen dealt with: pregnancy as a gateway to high strangeness.

We’ll talk to moms and dads about this–some of whom you’ll recognize and some you may not. And then we’ll talk to Dr. Tyler Kokjohn who can tell us what changes are taking place in the body that may or may not be contributing factors. Who knows?–perhaps we’ll make a discovery of our own.

Be sure to tune in. And tell a friend.

Excerpt from Into The End

The tree house lay secluded behind an abandoned mansion on a gated estate that had its own haunted lore. No one went near it except these boys. Not to break in. Not to throw rocks at the windows. Not on a dare. Not for anything.

It earned the nickname Spooky Mansion by the sheer creepiness of its existence. Townsfolk referred to it this way if they referred to it at all. In truth, barely anyone in Taunton thought about it let alone talked about it. Even the boys only mentioned it by way of territorial marker. Let’s meet up at Spooky Mansion, they’d say. It was interchangeable with tree house.
