Nashville Bomber, Part 4

Nashville Bomber, Part 4

2021-03-0601:03:19

On Christmas Day last year, a man by the name of Anthony Quinn Warner, better known as The Nashville Bomber, drove his RV right into the heart of downtown Nashville’s historic district and parked it at the intersection of 2nd and Commerce Streets. Once there, he proceeded with an incredibly elaborate plan to blow himself up in a most extreme and violent way. Since then, there’s been an extremely long and thorough federal investigation, and we’ve learned a lot about The Nashville Bomber – like his career, personal contacts and his incredibly strange conspiracy theory beliefs. But we still don’t know what, exactly, his motivation was for blowing up an entire historic city block. We also don’t know why he chose the location that he chose. If the feds know, they haven’t release anything yet, but they’re slated to give their final report sometime next month. Until then, I’m going to be reviewing what we do know about this guy and I’ll speculate as to what his motivations behind it all were. I’ve already devoted 3 entire episodes to this very topic, so if you haven’t heard them yet, I suggest that you head on over to parareality.com and check out the archives section. There may be some spoilers here. To learn what they are, you’ll have to Turn On, Tune In & Find Out!

Numerology 101

Numerology 101

2021-02-0601:16:47

Have you heard of Numerology? Do you always see the same number throughout your life? Have you found yourself drawn to particular numbers? Perhaps you want to learn more about numerology? Maybe you have absolutely no idea what numerology is? Numerology is the idea that the universe is a system; once broken down we are left with the basic elements, which is numbers. By understanding that everything in the world is dependent on, and can equate to numbers, a numerologist can take multiple elements of a person and break them down into meaningful numbers through various methods. These numbers can then be used to help us to better understand the world and ourselves as individuals where you can discover insights about your purpose and personality traits by working out things like your life path number, expression number, and heart's desire number among many others. This episode, my guest is Cosima, a practicing numerologist from Virginia. She is going to be giving us a lesson in Numerology 101 and tell us more about it and how it can be used in our everyday lives. Then, we'll be closing the show by having Cosima perform a numerology reading on me. The results are, well...quite surprising!

2021-01-0201:33:54

On the Season 15 premiere of the podcast, I'm joined in the bunker by Eric from World We Live In podcast and Oz from the Oddball Aussie podcast. We'll be doing a roundtable discussion about the possibility that the entire year of 2020 could have had a curse placed on it by a powerful Magickal person or cabal. There's also the possibility that a powerful group, such as the New World Order or Illuminati, are working behind the scenes, controlling the events as they unfold before us. What do you think? Can 2020 simply be attributed to "a bad year," has a curse been placed on it or are the events of this year being controlled by a powerful secret group, in an attempt to gain complete control of the entire world?

On Christmas Day, 2020, at 1:22 AM, Anthony Quinn Warner, a 62 year old IT contractor drove his RV into downtown Nashville, TN. He parked at the intersection of 2nd Avenue and Commerce Street, directly in front of the AT&T switching station. Sometime around 6:00 AM, he began to play the song "Downtown" by Petula Clark. Shortly after, he blasted a warning announcement over a loudspeaker telling everyone to clear the area. At 6:30 AM, the RV exploded with enough force to take out a city block. It damaged 40 buildings and almost completely destroyed the AT&T building. Thanks to the efforts of 6 brave Nashville, police officers, no-one was hurt and only 3 people sustained minor injuries. Warner died in the explosion, and left behind a slew of questions. Why did he do what he did? Why choose that location? Did he have a grudge against AT&T? Was he part of a terrorist cell?

The Phenomenon

The Phenomenon

2020-11-0701:31:50

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

War of the Worlds-1938

2020-10-2659:20

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.
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!

On tonight’s journey into the realm of ParaReality, I’m going to take you, my loyal listeners, on a journey to something that used to be a dark and scary place. It used to scare the hell out of adults and children alike, giving them nightmares, making them sleep with crucifixes and causing them to hang garlic above their windows. 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

Ask Sandman 2020

2020-09-0501:21:56

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!

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

Bruce Lee Conspiracies

2020-07-1801:40:00

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.
