3.9 | Phone Calls from the Dead and Pioneers of Spirit Tech

A startling ring in the middle of the night. The strange and distant voice on the line seems familiar, someone you’ve known, yet someone whose left this world behind. It’s a call that shouldn’t be possible- a transdimensional connection that defies our current understanding.. until now. Join us in the Hole as we peel back the pages of forgotten, ground breaking research to uncover the true stories of Phone Calls from the Dead and the innovators of both past and present whose mission of patching us through to the other side is becoming a potential reality.

Beginning with such pioneers of Spirit Technology as Captain Craufurd (the Wireless Man) and Logie Baird (the Black Magic Man) we break down not only their revolutionary contribution to terrestrial telecommunication, but their fascination and innovation in the realm of Instrumental Transcommunication.

Then, through the work of the renowned Parapsychologist D. Scott Rogo and his intrepid contemporaries, we investigate the longest of long-distance calls and discover the patterns in which these disembodied dial-ups seem to manifest, and what they might indicate for mankind.

Finally, we discuss the mind-bending announcement that a group known as the SpiritPhone Foundation is claiming a sort of Afterlife Disclosure via a break through in modern tech, allowing contact with the dead.. And yes, you too can have your very own Spirit Keyboard to commune with the other side whenever you might feel brave enough to shoot a text out into the void!.. gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘ghosting’, doesn’t it?

Also, Jeremy’s Pranks Chris, Winds of the Other World and Freddie Kruegers 80’s Hotline.. Nightmarish Rates May Apply.
