The History of Ghost Hunting – 3rd Ear Bonus 100

The history of paranormal investigation and ghost hunting goes back a couple thousand years – at least. I investigate its origins and then start to find the synchronicities of so many things converging at once upon me as I dig deeper. Outside of the religious stories, we find that the ideas of formal or somewhat formal groups coming together to investigate the paranormal were by most accounts born into the world in the late 19th century.

One thought on “The History of Ghost Hunting – 3rd Ear Bonus 100

  1. You should try to interview Dan Aykroyd, because apart from co-writing and starring in the ‘Ghostbuster’ movies he is right into this stuff for real.
    According to Wikipedia, “Aykroyd considers himself a Spiritualist, stating that:
    I am a Spiritualist, a proud wearer of the Spiritualist badge. Mediums and psychic research have gone on for many, many years…. Loads of people have seen spirits, heard a voice or felt the cold temperature. I believe that they are between here and there, that they exist between the fourth and fifth dimension, and that they visit us frequently.[33]
    His great-grandfather, a dentist, was a mystic who corresponded with author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle on the subject of Spiritualism, and who was a member of the Lily Dale Society.[33]

    Other than Spiritualism, Aykroyd is also interested in various other aspects of the paranormal, particularly UFOlogy. He is a lifetime member of and official Hollywood consultant for the Mutual UFO Network. Along these lines, he served, from 1996 to 2000, as “host” of Psi Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal, which claimed to describe cases drawn from the archives of “The Office Of Scientific Investigation And Research.” In 2005, Aykroyd produced the DVD Dan Aykroyd: Unplugged on UFOs.[34] Aykroyd is interviewed for 80 minutes by UFOlogist David Sereda discussing in depth many aspects of the UFO phenomenon.[35]

    On September 29, 2009, Peter Aykroyd Sr., Dan’s father, published a book entitled A History of Ghosts. This book chronicled the family’s historical involvement in the Spiritualist Movement, to which Aykroyd readily refers. Aykroyd wrote the introduction and accompanied his father on a series of promotional activities, including launches in New York and Toronto, appearances on Larry King Live, Coast to Coast AM and various other public relations initiatives.
    Aykroyd also read the introduction for the audio version of the book.[citation needed] In 1997, the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry(CSICOP) awarded Aykroyd “in absentia the Snuffed Candle Award for hosting Psi Factor and being a “long-time promoter … of paranormal claims” Following the awards, Joe Nickell wrote to Aykroyd asking for the research behind the “cases” presented on Psi Factor.
    Particularly a claim that NASA scientists were “killed while investigating a meteor crash and giant eggs were found and incubated, yielding a flea the size of a hog” ”

    All of the ingredients for a great podcast I think.
