Just wanted to let you know we are still here! The third podcast will hopefully be recorded soon. I may do a short podcast with friends discussing the contents of the the first couple of podcasts or perhaps a small discussion on 2012 or maybe a bit of both.

Thanks🙂

Episode 2 – The world of dowsing

There’s far more to dowsing than wandering about in a field with a twig trying to find water. In this episode we find out more about it with geomancer and president of the British Society of Dowsers, Grahame Gardner, who proved to be a mine of fascinating information.

You can listen to my attempt at dowsing for a lost wallet, which I’ve still not actually gone out looking for yet as I’ve not had the time. You can listen to my trying to fathom out the right kinds of questions to ask, so you should be able to comfortably give it a go yourself.

The links for this episode are…

British Society of Dowsers
There is wealth of information on this website, with links their own podcast that I highly recommend you listen to. There are also dowsing forums to check out.

On this page is a link to the podcast Grahame does with Tom Graves – the podcast where Grahame talks with Tom Graves. The BSD podcast ‘Adventures In Dowsing’ is also available through iTunes.

Western Geomancy
This is Grahame’s own website about his own experiences with dowsing and geomancy.

Safe As Houses – David Cowan
A link to David Cowan’s now out of print book “Safe As Houses” which you can read on the internet. This is David Cowan’s own website, there is plenty of other material on there, which may interest you.

I hope you enjoy this podcast. While I’ve not planned anything yet, I’m hoping the next podcast will be on the subject of Tarot.

Episode 1 (Part Two): Discussing Mediumship, fraud, the paranormal and TV programmes.

In a continuation from the previous podcast, Ewan Irvine and myself discuss fraud and the paranormal, checking for evidence and a bit about TV programmes such as ‘Most Haunted’. Ewan also gives a small demonstration of mediumship. I’ll verify what information I can afterwards, but there’s a couple of bits of info which have been removed from Ewan’s demonstration, one for personal reasons, which was a description of a very specific thing, which then something related directly to it happened the day after the interview with Ewan, that I can’t sadly go into. There is also another piece of information which for obvious reasons I need to wait and see what happens with them, no one apart from myself and Ewan know about, but I will hopefully be able to podcast about it at a not too distant date in the future.

You can listen directly to the latest show here: Episode 1B (Part Two): Mediumship and Psychic Awareness I recommend subscribing so you know when a new episode is released, there is also a Facebook page that you can “Like”.

Episode 1 (Part one): Discussing Mediumship and Psychic Awareness

Hi there,

After slightly longer than intended, I have produced the first podcast! One thing I hadn’t anticipated when recording was that I was going to end up with nearly three hours of material. I’d also not anticipated that the editing process was going to take as long as it has either, I guess these are the things we learn when we start a new venture. As there was so much material I’ve broken the podcast into two halves.

In the first half I talk to spiritualist medium Ewan Irvine, we go through how he became involved, he explains about his beliefs, how he works, and we also talk about ethics to help give us an overview. There is also an aura exercise and a sample from Ewan’s meditation CD to get you started.

The second part will be released in a couple of weeks, in that we dicuss the more negative aspects associated with mediumship, such as fraudulence and we also talk about ghosts, Most Haunted and TV programmes and about his LeithFM show – The ‘S’ files. Ewan also gives a short demonstration of his abilities, the gap between releasing parts will give me time to confirm some of the infomation in Ewan’s demonstration.

Here is a list of websites which we mention in the show.

Ewan’s Website – where you can contact Ewan and order his CD: http://ewanirvine.co.uk

Full Moon Investigations : http://www.fullmooninvestigations.co.uk

Leith FM – Ewan’s show – The ‘S’ Files is on Wednesday evenings 10pm – midnight – you can listen via the Internet:  http://www.leithfm.co.uk/

The podcast is available on iTunes and is also available on our Soundcloud page. You can also subscribe via the following:

Episode 0 – What is this all about?

Click the link below to hear the introductory podcast explaining what this is all about, or alternatively keep reading.

Episode 0: Introduction

Hello and welcome,

We live in a world in which there’s plenty weird and wonderful events occurring. Depending on who you talk to, they tend to be either easily explained or not so easily explained. What kind of events am I talking about? I’m talking about events and topics that we widely term ‘new age’. I’m sure those two little words are instantly conjuring up all sorts of naff stereotypical images in your head. I want to throw the new age stereotypes out the windows and offer everyone the chance to find out more about a range of subjects. As part of it I want to give people the opportunity to participate and try some of these things for themselves.

I decided to make a podcast where I speak to people in fields such as mediumship, ghosts, dowsing, meditation and tarot and find out more about these subjects: How they became interested? What do they do? What issues do they encounter? What is the reputation of their field? What are the ethics involved? I want to discuss both positive and negative aspects of their fields. Where possible, I’d like them to give practical demonstrations, not only that I would like them to try experiments and exercises for listeners to either along with or after the podcast. I want something everyone can participate in and offer feedback on.

User interaction is key. I’d like to do a follow-up podcast for each person I talk to, this will give listeners an opportunity to send in questions and comment on the exercises or experiments via email.

The first official podcast should be up in the next few days, my first guest will be spritualist medium Ewan Irvine.

After all, you will never know until you try!

The podcast isn’t yet available on iTunes, this will hopefully be recitified soon, however for now you can visit the SoundCloud page. Also why not subscribe to the blog’s RSS feed so you’ll can be notified when the next podcast is uploaded?

If there is a particular topic you’d like to learn more about, or be covered more in-depth, please feel free to leave a comment here or to drop us a line at…
