Memories of Mac

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about Mac Tonnies, who died suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 34 last October. Mac was one of my best friends, and I miss him a great deal. Last November, Nick Redfern and I joined Greg Bishop on Greg’s Radio Misterioso radio show to remember our friend. Here is an excerpt that I enjoy, and that captures the essence of how we all felt about Mac. At the end, instead of the usual Other Side of Truth theme music (from Space: 1999), I’ve added a version of one of our favourite songs, the Smiths “There is a Light That Never Goes Out,” by the Vitamin String Quartet.

To hear the full episode, go to Radio Misterioso.

Holly Stevens and Ghost Cases on A & E Biography

Episode 7, part 4 of the A & E Biography series My Ghost Story, about the Algonquin Hotel in St. Andrew's, New Brunswick, features my Ghost Cases co-host Holly Stevens and footage from the second episode of our series. You can view the A & E segment here.

I wish the producers had spent more time placing the incident in context, but that's American television for you - a lot of flash, and a lot of quick edits and special effects, sometimes at the expense of the story itself. Still, the segment is well done, Holly did a great job, and the footage remains compelling.

To get the fuller and much more interesting story, watch the original Ghost Cases episode on Eastlink TV, or check out my Paracast interview segment at The Other Side of Truth podcast, where I discuss the case (listen to it here).

Dark Matters Radio, 29 June 2010

A couple of days ago, on Tuesday, June 29, 2010, I returned for a 2 hour appearance on Dark Matters Radio, hosted by the one and only Don Ecker. Don and I covered a lot of ground, and in this episode of The Other Side of Truth I’ve excerpted the two parts that I found the most interesting. In the first, I discuss why I think the discovery of who we are as indivduals is the really important journey to be had in paranormal research. In the second, Don asks me to describe one of the strangest experiences Holly Stevens and I had while filming Ghost Cases in 2009.

To hear the entire episode, and all of the other great episodes Don has done since his return earlier this year to live radio, check out the Dark Matters Radio archives.
