Binnall & O'Conner on The Other Side of Truth
In the summer of 2007 I was visited here in Nova Scotia by my friend Tim Binnall, host of the Binnall of America podcast. While he was here, we took the opportunity to attend the annual Explore Oak Island Days festival / conference on the province’s south shore, near the legendary island of alleged buried treasure. Tim and I pitched a tent at a nearby campground, hung out, drank a lot of beer (and I mean a lot), and talked about all sorts of esoteric and paranormal subjects. I had a DV camera with me to conduct some interviews and film some lectures at the conference, and one afternoon when we had nothing better to do, I decided to ask Tim a few questions. I’ve included that exchange in this episode, as well as a couple of excerpts from an interview I conducted with Oak Island researcher D’Arcy O’Connor, who wrote The Secret Treasure of Oak Island: The Amazing True Story of a Centuries-Old Treasure Hunt.
