This episode may not be everyone's "cup of tea" because it deals with issues that might make some people uncomfortable. But for those of us (like Harry Houdini) who are “seekers of the truth”, we are constantly on the lookout for and investigating “what’s out there”.
Jamie Salinas and I have been conducting Theatrical Séances over the past five years in downtown Houston. We have also lectured on the subject at the MINDvention in Las Vegas plus we are completing a book on the Business of Marketing the Paranormal Experience. In that regard and to a degree, we have an interest in bizarre magik (magic with a “k”). So when Jamie told me about a ghost hunt in nearby Liberty, Texas, of course I agreed to participate. This was going to be an all night event with about a half dozen other people plus seven people from the team of Southern Paranormal Investigators.
This podcast includes chats with the Team Leader, a psychic and the owner of the Haunted Historic Ott Hotel in Liberty, TX. We also get to get a little “Ghost Busting 101” as they discuss the do’s and don’ts of ghost hunting plus going over the tools of the trade.
00:00 – 3:20 – Jamie Salinas and I have our bags packed as we discuss what we anticipate what we think the evening will bring.
3:20 – 10:00 – Jennifer Hansen, Founder of S.P.I. talks about what her organization does and how they help investigate paranormal activity in private residences and help to resolve issues in their home. Maria Santos, a Medium, talks about her special abilities and how she helps S.P.I. and some of her experiences during her readings.
10:00 – 22:50 – Susan McCain, owner of the Haunted and Historic Ott Hotel, told me about how she and her husband came to owning this old building. She also talks about some of the history of the building and land plus some unusual happenings she has experienced over the past 11 years.
22:50 – 1:11:00 – If you have been thinking of going out on your own to find spirits, paranormal happenings, ghosts or whatever, then here you get a chance to understand what you should and shouldn’t do when planning to head into that old building or cemetery. They also go over the “tools of the trade” that every good ghost hunter needs for doing some “busting”.
1:11:00 – 1:18:50 – Jamie and I did a final wrap of the whole evening and discuss what we saw, heard and experienced.
