This week, we have a fully loaded episode. The Dungeon takes on EXORCISM--The Final Spiritual Frontier. We boldly go where only father Marrin and Father Karras had been before. The power of Christ compelled me to write and record this episode. It was the only way to exorcise the demons...hallelujah!
I discuss the historical background of exorcisms, and their impact of the current state of psychology. While this is by no means an exhaustive essay on the topic, it does offer well researched info. This is a good starting point for another broad topic that requires furthur research (just like vampire sexuality...it deserves a second bite).
This Week in Strange segment covers a possible ghost photo of author Washington Irving (Ichabod...Inchabod...Ichabod). The article and video that inspired this topic is linked here. While I am skeptical of the article's findings, it is still a fascinating topic. http://tarrytown.patch.com/articles/a-glimpse-of-the-paranormal
To lighten the mood, there's a bit of humor courtesy of The Onion. It makes me hungry for Count Chocula (a future topic for this show). http://www.theonion.com/articles/bloodthirsty-undead-ghoul-advocates-chocolatecerea,648/
Listener feedback is also read. Special thanks to SDaedalus, and her wonderful comments. You can read her blog here: http://sdaedalus.wordpress.com/
I'm looking forward to expelling the demons, and moving on to the next show.
I had a devil of a time putting this episode together, and I hope you enjoy it!
Remember....THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU!
As a bonus link: I invite you all to check out Horroretc. Their audio commentary on THE EXORCIST was a welcome coincidence, and was uploaded as I was recording this episode. You can visit them at http://www.horroretc.com/
As always, you can listen to the show here, or at our host http://www.archive.org/ (where you can download the episodes)
