Astonishing Legends

Hosted ByScott Philbrook & Forrest Burgess

The world is more mysterious than most people are comfortable imagining. We cross paths with the mystical from time to time and may not even notice it. If we do, we quickly return to our usually mundane daily existence. But what if we not only acknowledged the unknown, we investigated it and spoke with those in the know? That’s what co-hosts Scott & Forrest, and their producer Tess Pfeifle do at Astonishing Legends. Over 85 million downloads and hundreds of thousands of listeners have shown that exploring and embracing the wonders of our world can be not only enlightening but exciting. Welcome to Astonishing Legends!

Terry Carnation’s Dark Air and Richard Hatem

We have a very special guest joining us tonight, metaphysical “astralnaut,” philosopher of the liminal, “Pope of the Paranormal,” and host of the AM Radio talk show Dark Air, Terry Carnation.  Terry first got his start in the paranormal radio genre when unexpectedly thrust into taking over for another show.  While working as a late-night rock n’ roll Disc Jockey for an FM station in Buffalo, NY, in 1992, Reginald Wilcox, the host of the paranormal call-in show that aired after Terry’s slot was mysteriously murdered while Terry was in the bathroom… or so he claims.  In his unflappable sense of duty, apparently stronger than his sense of legal obligation, Terry immediately took over the role of consigliere for listeners stupefied by the supernatural. And in Terry’s words, “that’s how a legend was created.” Now, after a three-year hiatus, Terry Carnation returns with a new podcast, also called Dark Air, available starting April 1, 2021, wherever podcasts are given away for free.  While you may not have heard of him, there will be something uneasily familiar about his voice and visage.  And the audience will come to know his strange power for tearing off the head of disbelief and reaching down deep into our souls to yank out the viscera of our darkest fears and mysteries.  Wrapped around our interview with Terry, our good buddy Rich Hatem joins us once again to discuss his latest adventures and projects.  We’ll also con him into playing our version of a game show, in the spirit of America’s NPR radio program Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! and Britain’s Would I Lie to You?  We’ll tell Rich three outrageous paranormal stories, and he has to guess which one is fake.  Please join us for an episode of inscrutable levity.
