Coast to Coast AM

Author, lecturer, and paranormal researcher Dave Schrader
discussed his lifelong immersion into the paranormal, including updates on “thought form” creatures such as Slender Man, Bloody Bones Man, and the Faceless. In pondering to what extent paranormal sightings are based on expectation, intention, and mental processes, he looked back at the famed Philip Experiment
 in Canada in 1970s, in which a ghost was deliberately conjured or created by a group. What they communicated with could be an invented form, or possibly a spirit that walked in and took the attention people were willing to give it, and this could pose certain dangers, he commented. The recent film, “The Apparition” (which Joshua P. Warren served as a consultant on), is based on the notion of creating a spirit using technology.

Schrader described a strange collection of creatures that may fit the idea of thought forms that become hauntings. He’s received an increased number of reports of the Bloody Bones Man or “Raw Head” who appears as a boogeyman-like creature whose skin is removed, and shows up in people’s bedrooms at night. “Is is because we put this out there, started to share it, and now it’s in the minds of people, especially at bedtime?,” he asked. Emerging from a website to create a paranormal image, a character called Slender Man has been described as a very tall thin man who wears a suit, has no eyes, no mouth, and no clearly defined facial features. Though he had fictitious roots and was featured in some games, now people are actually reporting seeing this being, and he’s taken on a life of his own, Schrader detailed.

Similarly, he continued, people have described a faceless being, with a blank flat countenance that has sometimes been seen before a tragedy or accident strikes, in the way that Mothman sightings were said to be harbingers. Schrader also touched on Old Hag Syndrome, Ouija boards (including theZOZO phenomenon in which numerous people are said to be in contact with the same entity), and some of the places he’s investigated. These locales include the Stanley Hotel (related video), Rolling Hills Sanatorium in East Bethany, NY, and the Waverly Hills Sanatorium, where he encountered a Shadow Person, who walked right through him.

George Knapp was joined by ufologist Grant Cameron
who discussed his analysis of government leaks into the classified world of UFOs. Historian and UFO researcher Richard Dolan appeared in the first half of the 2nd hour to talk about Cameron’s new book and aviator John Lear joined the conversation in the second half of the 3rd hour. Cameron observed that UFO revelations often follow a pattern where researchers examine the information, then it becomes discredited, and “everybody just drops the story” in search of the next big disclosure. However, he refuted the idea that these are patently false stories planted by the government and suggested that, in fact, they contain accurate information which is then smeared with disinformation via holes in the story that have been created ahead of time.

Furthering his thesis on these UFO disclosures, Cameron posited that the government is “putting the information out, but they are keeping the cover up going” by subsequently discrediting it. Additionally, he theorized that the era of UFO whistleblowers is over and anyone claiming to be such a witness is “working for them.” To that end, he said that, since the government would easily be able to identify any ‘anonymous’ whistleblower, then the person must be revealing these secrets at the behest of the ‘powers that be.’ Cameron also contended that “all leaked documents are phony,” because they are classified material and the government would swiftly arrest anyone who breached that official secrecy.

In the first half of the third hour, aviator John Lear joined the conversation to reflect on the Bob Lazar Area 51 revelations and how they may have fit into this plan of action by the government. He recalled how Lazar had been asked about his friendship with Lear during his second interview for the Area 51 job. As such, he surmised that the entire saga was initiated by the government, since they knew Lazar would eventually leak the information to him. While Cameron conceded that Lazar’s academic history has been shown to be false, thus allowing for the government to dismiss his tale, he noted that the notorious whistleblower passed numerous lie detector tests and his accurate information about Area 51 is what allowed for the story to be revealed.

Appearing during the first half of the second hour, historian Richard Dolan, who is publishing Cameron’s new book (co-authored with Scott Crain), called it “possibly the single best book, best I’ve ever read, dealing with inside government leaks from credible sources about the reality of the UFO phenomenon.” Regarding the theory that the government leaks accurate information and then discredits it, Dolan noted that it represents the ideal way of getting UFO secrets out to the general public without “destabilizing the whole system.”

Star People Encounters

In the first hour, Ardy Sixkiller Clarke detailed her research into Native American encounters with Star People. Since tales of alien encounters have been passed down for generations amongst Native Americans, she said that such stories are treated as normal events even in contemporary times. Clarke professed absolute belief in the veracity of the stories she was told by various Native Americans, who had these paranormal encounters, and stressed that they were “alert recollections” told to her rather than tales procured via hypnosis or a dream state. Over the course of her appearance, she shared stories of modern Native American UFO and alien encounters as well as insights into Skinwalkers and Sasquatch.

In the middle two hours, scholar of Bigfoot history, Steven Streufert, shared history and analysis of the mysterious creature. He runs a used and antiquarian bookshop (specializing in “Sasquatchiana”) in Willow Creek, California, considered the heart of the historic “Bigfoot Country,”– the location is near where giant tracks were found in 1958, and “Bigfoot” subsequently became a household word. Willow Creek is also near where the famed Patterson-Gimlin film was shot in 1967, and Streufert has been involved in the Bluff Creek Film Site Project, which has traced the exact location of where Patterson filmed, in order to verify details about the creature, and its environment. He also participates in a Facebook group that seeks to promote the spirit of rational thinking and evidence-based Bigfoot research (in reaction to some of the more fantastical, insubstantial, or promotion-based claims made about the creature).

Streufert spoke about some of the ancient Native-American lore regarding Sasquatch, such as the beings speaking a language, as well as trading with, abducting, and even mating with humans, and producing offspring. One theory, he noted, is that Bigfoot are actually hybrids between humans and proto-humans. He also discussed the current Bigfoot DNA Project, spearheaded by Melba Ketchum, and a controversial case from last year when a hunter claimed he killed two Sasquatch in the central Sierra Nevada mountains, and now has “Bigfoot steaks” stashed in the freezer.

Last hour guest, cryptozoology advisor to Rue Morgue magazine, Lyle Blackburn, discussed reports of a strange beast known as the Fouke Monster that have circulated among the locals in southern Arkansas. In 1971, a family was reportedly attacked by a “big hairy monster,” and within a year, there were around 50 more sightings, with descriptions of an adult creature with a narrow build. The creature became popularized as the ‘Beast of Boggy Creek,’ when the low budget film The Legend of Boggy Creek was released in 1972, and became a hit. The movie was indeed based on some facts, Blackburn said, who added that he considers the creature to possibly be a cross between the foul-smelling Skunk Ape and a Pacific Northwest-type Bigfoot. In 1991, a large skeleton (missing the skull) was found in the woods near Jefferson, Texas that some believe could be a Bigfoot, he added.
Strange Surgeries

First hour guest, plastic surgeon Dr. Tony Youn recounted bizarre and unusual medical procedures. For instance, one plastic surgeon claimed he used the fat extracted from liposuction operations as biodiesel to run his car. Youn also touched on “body transmogrification” in which people have strange modifications such as the lizard-like tongue bifurcation, as well as a new weight loss strategy in which a doctor stitches a mesh patch on the tongue in order to make the act of eating uncomfortable.

George Knapp welcomed ethno-pharmacologist Dennis McKenna, who has been studying plant hallucinogens for over forty years, and they discussed the groundbreaking work McKenna did with his brother Terence, the great raconteur of wide-reaching philosophical ideas. Over the course of the evening, he recounted their childhood in Paonia, Colorado, how their bond evolved into a “collegial relationship,” and the brothers’ famous journey to La Chorrera, Colombia where they experimented with DMT and psychedelic mushrooms. Additionally, McKenna expounded on the difficulties in answering the question of “what is real and what is not” when studying hallucinogenic experiences, since science continues to struggle with understanding the nature of consciousness.

George Knapp was joined by Fortean researcher Nick Redfern
for a discussion on paranormal hot spots that can be found across the globe. “I think there is evidence that there are places that do act like a magnet or a doorway” for strange phenomena, he argued. As such, Redfern explained that his research focused on examining isolated areas where multiple facets of the paranormal have been reported over considerable lengths of time. The town of Jefferson, Texas, Loch Ness in Scotland and Mount Shasta in California were some of these paranormal hot spots identified by Redfern. Over the course of the evening, he also shared his thoughts on the nature of mysteries like Bigfoot, Men in Black, and ghosts.

Devil’s Gate Dam in southern California was one paranormal hot spot where, Redfern observed, “there’s nothing positive about any of the weirdness that’s gone on there.” Located a few miles from Los Angeles, the canyon was a favorite haunt of notorious rocket scientist and occultist Jack Parsons, who was said to have performed arcane rituals there. Additionally, the area is home to a bridge where “in less than a century, more than 100 people have thrown themselves off to their death in the river bed below,” causing the landmark to be known by locals as “suicide bridge.” Redfern also noted that, in the 1950’s, the location was the site of a series of grisly child killings. In modern times, Redfern said, there have been reports of a “winged humanoid-type creature” in the area.

Another location, detailed by Redfern, was a forest called Cannock Chase in the UK, which he called “a definitive window area” for paranormal activity. According to him, the area has been the site of UFO reports, abductions, and alien contact encounters as well as an abundance of sightings of “big cats” and “ghostly black dogs.” Furthermore, Redfern revealed that, in 2007, several credible witnesses reported seeing a werewolf-like creature near an old cemetery in the woods. Appearing at first to merely be a large, out of place wolf, Redfern said that witnesses who glimpsed the creature reported that, once the beast saw them, “it would rise up onto its hind legs” and swiftly run off into the forest on two feet.

Inter-tribal Medicine Man, Red Elk shared his visions of earth changes, and also touched on such topics as thunderbirds, Lizard People, Lucifer, Mel’s Hole, time travel, and phantom pain. Seattle, he explained, is sitting on a V-shaped plot of earth that is due to split, causing the city to slide into Puget Sound. This will create a huge tsunami, putting parts of the Washington state coastline underwater. Mount Rainier will also have major volcanic activity, he noted. Red Elk said these events were likely to happen within 25 years, though it’s possible humankind can avert this outcome.

Thunderbirds, with wingspans that average 22 feet, have breeding grounds in South America, and are slowly coming back to the U.S., said Red Elk. The Cree Indians are protectorates of an earlier breeding ground in Yukon, Canada, a “sacred bird cave,” that has relics of eggs that were the size of bowling balls, he shared. Mel’s Hole, definitely exists, Red Elk declared– it’s 27-27 ½ miles deep, connects to underground tunnels, and serves as a “blow hole” to Mount Rainier. The Yakima Indians know of another such hole, he added.

Such holes are used by the “Lizard People” to transport goods from spaceshipsto their underground caverns, he continued. “I’ve had my run-ins with them,” they have green/khaki scaly skin, walk upright, and occasionally kill humans to make powders that increase their lifespan, detailed Red Elk.

Do Werewolves exist?  They have existed in mythology/folklore for centuries, and sightings of them, despite small, do still continue to the Present.  Here are some shows from Coast To Coast AM on the subject.
7/23/09

“Author, artist and researcher of the strange, Linda Godfrey discussed her most recent work on true encounters with beast-men and upright-walking canine creatures. “I still get one to three a week,” she said of the many reports of these bipedal dogs she has collected– “it’s running up into the hundreds.””
10/27/09

“Dr. Bob Curran appeared in the latter of half of the show, discussing the creation of the werewolf tradition, how humans transform themselves into animals, and why the werewolf is viewed as evil. The myth of the werewolf stretches back to the early mists of time, he said, with early man admiring the hunting skills of the wolf, and pondering how they could take on their characteristics.”
1/07/11

“In the first half of the program, researcher and author Linda Godfrey reported on sightings of an unknown upright-walking canine known as the ‘Manwolf’ or ‘Dogman.’ Witnesses describe these creatures as 5 to 7 feet tall, extremely muscular, covered in fur, with large fangs, the head of a wolf or German Shepherd, and somehow imbued with a special sentience (perhaps as a result of walking on their hind legs). According to Godfrey, every part of the United States has its own version of the creature, but the largest concentration of sightings are around the Great Lakes. In addition, there are what appear to be migratory routes to Oklahoma and some south eastern states, she added.”
8/26/12

“Researcher, author and newspaper reporter, Linda Godfrey, has been tracking upright, canine creatures that look like traditional werewolves for over twenty years. She joined George Knapp to discuss modern and classic sightings of the creatures. Descriptions by witnesses of the Manwolf or Dogman have remained consistent over the years and across the US– a 5-7 ft. tall creature that stands, walks or runs on its hind legs (although it can alternate between that and all fours), is covered with shaggy fur, and has a long snout, fangs, and pointed ears on top of its head, she detailed. Curiously, people often note that it has a jeering or sneering quality as though it’s trying to scare them, but then quickly darts off into nearby cover. One witness, a man in Quebec province, said he was grazed by the fangs of a creature when it brushed past him, leaving him with a skin tear that required stitches.”

In the first half, Bigfoot researcher Rhettman Mullis shared his latest findings on the mysterious creature. He was excited to report on a recent meeting with Dr. Ed Fusch, an anthropologist who has studied the Bigfoot stories of the Colville Tribal area in northeast Washington. During their meeting Mullis said he learned more about a hybrid named Patrick—the supposed offspring of an Indian mother and Bigfoot father born near the turn of the 20th century. Patrick’s body structure and appearance were markedly different from that of other Indians, Mullis explained, noting that he had extremely long arms with large hands and fingers, a sloping forehead and dominant brow, a very large lower jaw, and a wide mouth filled with straight protruding teeth. Mullis expressed his desire to run DNA tests on Patrick’s two surviving daughters, both of whom are said to possess similar features.

Mullis spoke about visiting a site on the Colville Indian Reservation known for Bigfoot traffic and marked by a 9-ft statue of the creature. Nearby Mullis said he and his wife found copious amounts of course brown hair caught on a wire fence. The hair sample is scheduled to be sent and tested by geneticist and former Coast guest Dr. Bryan Sykes, he noted. Mullis also mentioned his 1997 sighting, when he personally witnessed a Bigfoot washing herself in a quarry pond in the Maysville area of Western Washington. After studying Bigfoot and having had his own personal encounters, Mullis believes “these are not just regular apes.” DNA testing will reveal what these creatures actually are and finally give them a rightful place in biology textbooks, he said.
