All Hallows’ Eve
The embers of Beltane are long dead, and now Samhain (the Gaelic word meaning summer’s end) heralds the triumph of darkness over light… a suitable time of year for us to swap supernatural stories and to reflect on matters mortal and macabre.
From Charles Fort (“it’s raining frogs!”) to the Ouija-board-channeling Pearl Curran (“I see dead authors!”) by way of Mothman, the Jersey Devil and Joseph Smith (“God lives on a planet near the star Kolob”) to Richard Dawkins (“a prick”) we’re dispensing a ton of random wisdom tonight. Or something like that.
Guest panelist Brian Clegg is a famed British science writer whose many books have shed light on things like, er – light… and gravity… and time… and so on. Quite the rationalist, then… or is he?
Our other guest panelist is author Charles Cassady Jr. whose three books on American regional ghost stories and paranormal lore address Great Lakes maritime weirdness and strange tales and folklore along the Mississippi River. Creepy!
Presented by Peter Cox, Ian Winn and the sophic Ali Gardiner in the chat room.

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
