I recently found this podcast through the looking glass of Facebook and similar interests... and I am so glad that I did! It is so refreshing to hear “the other side- subculture- controversial” viewpoints about everything that I nerd out about on my own! This is what I would love to have discussions about as well with all of the interviews on this podcast. Rock on, paranerds!

Fantastic!

Rank #6: The Story Behind The Conjuring with Andrea Perron - The Big Seance Podcast: My Paranormal World #98

Podcast cover
Read more

Andrea Perron, author and eldest daughter from the family depicted in the 2013 film, The Conjuring, shares her terrifying yet beautiful true story. Plus her beautiful trilogy, the truth about Bathsheba, responding to critics, and future films in the works! Visit BigSeance.com for more info!

In this episode:

  • Episode Teaser :00
  • Intro 2:14

The Story and the Trilogy

  • Welcome, Andrea Perron! 4:53
  • “I put everything on the line to tell this story.” Turning a decade of experiences into a manuscript. 6:05
  • "I’m working on screenplays right now for each one of the books, and in the next year or two the films will start to be released, one at a time." 7:48
  • The truth behind the Conjuring story. And Andrea has no resentment at all toward the 2013 film, The Conjuring. 8:09
  • The collective memoirs of an entire family’s haunting, yet spiritual journey. 10:30

Ed and Lorraine Warren

  • When did producers of The Conjuring start eyeing the Perron family story? Plus being a consultant for the film, and the Warren case files. 12:30
  • “…in this rare instance, the truth is stranger than fiction. And 'The Conjuring' is predominantly fictional.” 15:40
  • “Spiritual malpractice.” The horrific night of the séance, plus the Perron family left the relationship with the Warrens on bad terms. 15:40
  • “Paranormal investigation, doing this kind of research, living in this kind of environment, or even visiting this kind of an environment comes with some inherent risks and dangers. And if people don’t know what they’re doing, it can deteriorate quickly." 23:25

Keith Johnson and PIRO

  • Crucifixes, slamming doors and windows, and a slap in the face. 29:55
  • More on the Warrens’ involvement. 33:32

“There’s no veil. That’s a machination. That’s something that human beings have literally fabricated so that we can live in a realm that feels safe and secure to us.”

“We thought that ten years later when we left the farm, that we were going to be leaving them behind, and nothing could be further from the truth. Profound attachments were formed and have persisted, lifelong.”

  • We’re surrounded by spirit all the time, and “death is not anything more than a transformation.” 37:58 

“It’s because I’ve seen the dark side of existence that I choose to live in the light.”

  • “I saw a full-body manifestation of an old woman standing right beside me on the hearthstone of the fireplace. And she had every feature, she was a mirror image reflection of me, only of an old woman dressed in clothes from the 1700s...” 41:05

Being the Face of The Conjuring

  • The whirlwind journey of being the face of The Conjuring. 43:27

“They could not have cast that film better than they did.”

3 Future Films in the Works

  • More on the future film project. 49:15

“There’s no point in making another ‘hollyweirded' up, fictionalized film at all.”

  • “My message is one of peace and love and hope and reconciliation and acknowledgment and acceptance and dispelling fear. And the only way to dispel fear is to embrace it and to thank it for every time it ever saved you from making a bad decision, ever saved you from yourself, ever intervened on your behalf. But when you turn your life path over to it, when you relinquish your own personal power to fear, and you let it live you, then you only live a half life.” 54:25

Controversy and the Facts about Bathsheba Sherman

  • "She walked into the house and she put her hand down on the corner of the black stove in the kitchen. And she covered her eyes and she said, ‘There’s a malignant force in this house. There’s a malicious presence in this house. Her name is Bathsheba.’" 1:00:15

Responding to Criticism

  • Andrea’s powerful and emotional response to Norma’s claims. 1:04:49
  • “And my mother reluctantly turned that notebook over to her, including all of her recollections, and all of her sketches and drawings of everything that she had seen in the house. And she turned it over to Mrs. Warren and she never got it back." 1:21:05

April and Her Spirit Friend, Oliver

  • Reflecting on the heartbreaking yet beautiful story that is told in Andrea's trilogy, involving her recently departed youngest sister, April. As a child, April developed a very private friendship with the spirit of a young boy named Oliver. 1:22:58

Leaving the Farm

  • A difficult decision 1:30:25

Final Thoughts 

  • Final thoughts and where to find Andrea Perron! 1:34:30

  • Outro 1:41:46
  • Outtake (“A frog got in the house!”) 1:43:23
  • #Paranerd Hashtag 1:44:10

Rank #9: The Haunted Myrtles Plantation, Natchez Mississippi, New Orleans, and Cemeteries Galore - The Big Séance Podcast: My Paranormal World #36

Podcast cover
Read more

Are you brave enough to stay the night at the haunted Myrtles Plantation? I did. Join me as I talk about the exciting stops on my summer vacation through the south, here in the US. Other paranormal spots included the King's Tavern in Natchez, MS, Oak Alley Plantation, and the Lalaurie Mansion in New Orleans. 

Call the show (775) 583-5563! Psst… Are you looking for the SpeakPipe link?

Visit BigSeance.com for more show notes!

In this episode:

  •  A quick summary of this episode! :38
  •  Leaving St. Louis for Lamberts Cafe in Sikeston, MO 1:54
  •  Stayed the night at the Hilton Memphis (Sorry, Elvis) 2:49
  • We arrived in the beautiful and historic Natchez, MS. View the photos I took around the city in my Natchez album on Flickr. 3:14
  • King’s Tavern — Featured on Ghost Adventures in Season 7, episode 18 from 2013. Kings Tavern is the oldest standing building in the Mississippi Territory and Natchez and its history goes all the way back to 1769. 3:36
  • Plan B and stumbling into a beautiful surprise! 4:17
  • Dinner at the historic Bowie’s Tavern — We talked to some residents who recommended we have dinner at Bowie’s Tavern, which is on Broadway in Natchez. And they made a great choice for us. Good food and really nice people. The historic building overlooks the Mississippi river and was originally a cotton warehouse. They also proudly display a mahogany bar that was built around 1880. They also have lodging on the upper floor with a view of the river! 5:04 
  • The mysterious and unique grave of Florence Irene Ford (Sept 3, 1861 - Oct 30, 1871), who died of yellow fever at the age of 10. This grave was constructed with a set of open concrete stairs that descend next to what would be the head of Florence’s body, with the headstone above. Learn more about this grave at GhostInMySuitcase.com. 8:05 
  • Before leaving Natchez, we toured the Monmouth Mansion (built in 1818) and the beautiful gardens and small cemetery that surrounds it. Check out my Monmouth Mansion photo album on Flickr. 10:03
  • The Myrtles Plantation (built circa. 1796) in St. Francisville, LA — If you are as big of a paranerd as I am, you’ve probably seen the Ghost Hunters investigation of Myrtles from way back in 2005, episode 1 of their 2nd season. You’ve also probably seen the The Ghost Adventures crew investigate the place just last year in season 9, episode 2. 10:46
  • The lovely Miss Hester 11:33 
  • Some audio with a little bit of the atmosphere of the haunted Myrtles Plantation. 12:25 
  • The Myrtles Plantation Tour 14:15
  • Some of the legends of the Myrtles Plantation 16:18
  • The Haunted Mirror 17:01
  • The ghost of Chloe — Probably the biggest legend of the Myrtles. Chloe was supposedly the slave closest to the Woodruff family, who purchased the home in 1820 and remodeled it. Was she Mr. Woodruff’s mistress? Did she poison Mrs. Woodruff, along with Cornelia and James, two of the children? Was one of her ears cut off? And was she hung from a nearby tree? 19:03
  • The nursery, or the “Ruffin Stirling Room”, which is where we stayed for the night. The two children, Cornelia and James Woodruff, were apparently taken to this room, where they later died. 21:26
  • Kate, Cleo, Voodoo, and other deaths at the Myrtles. 21:47
  • More about the “terrifying” bed shaking experiences that have been reported in the nursery/Ruffin Stirling Room. 22:34
  • Before bed we tried to reach out to any of the spirits of the Myrtles by conducting an EVP, Spirit Box, and Ouija session in the nursery. 23:06
  • Who changed the track on my recorder while we were sleeping? 26:23
  • More audio of me touring the grounds of the Myrtles, including the pond and cabins around the back of the property. 28:26
  • View my Myrtles Plantation photo album on Flickr
  • Our visit to Grace Cemetery and the Grace Episcopal Church in St. Francisville, LA. You can find the Grace Cemetery photo album on Flickr. 30:18 
  • The beautiful and reportedly haunted Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, LA. It’s one of the more popular plantations. In fact, you’ve probably seen it in photos or even as the Hollywood backdrop of a movie or two. It was featured in Season 4, episode 19 of Ghost Hunters in 2008. The rows of 300 year old oak trees are breath taking. Check out my Oak Alley Plantation album on Flickr. 32:36
  • Heading to New Orleans and the overwhelming heaviness or anxiety that I was feeling. 33:45
  • Bourbon Street 35:15

Rank #19: The Legend of the Milton Schoolhouse - The Big Séance Podcast: My Paranormal World #50

Podcast cover
Read more

Are trapped ghosts inside the Milton Schoolhouse? Are there mysterious spirits, unrelated to the legend, that call the Milton home? Or perhaps there has never been a ghostly presence in the building. Join me as we chat with Milton co-owner, Meredith, as well as previous guest, Ginger Collins-Justus. Paranormal or not, you MUST visit the Milton and see its current reincarnation! Visit BigSeance.com for more info.  

"The Milton Schoolhouse is a place for innovators, dreamers, bold visionaries, entrepreneurs, inventors, artists, daring pioneers- and renaissance people."

Pssst... Are you looking for the SpeakPipe Link?

In this episode:

  • Take a ride with me! We’re headed to Alton, Illinois for Maeva’s Coffee Shop at the Milton Schoolhouse! 2:24
  • The legend and history of the Milton Schoolhouse, which was featured on Syfy’s Ghost Hunters in 2010. 4:02
  • Troy Taylor’s article from AltonHauntings.com
  • Ginger Collins-Justus and I sit down at Maeva’s with co-owner of the Milton Schoolhouse, Meredith. She introduces us to the Milton and gives a brief timeline of events and renovation since purchasing the building in 2009. 7:52
  • Patrick describes the Milton Schoolhouse and what you’ll find when you walk in. 9:49
  • I begin asking Meredith about the legend. And she gives us a cool behind the scenes look at Jason and Grant’s visit with T.A.P.S. 10:26
  • Is there any truth to the legend? 13:40
  • So what about the reports of hauntings? Is it haunted? And who is haunting it? And what about the evidence from the Ghost Hunters episode? 14:53
  • Riverbend Paranormal
  • Being a respectful landlord to the presence of both the physical and spiritual. (Not getting the answer I apparently was looking for, I kept pestering Meredith about activity in the building.) 15:56
  • I missed the cooler story. What’s the latest news from the Milton? 16:37
  • Templar Brewing Co is moving into the Milton.
  • What does Ginger think? As an intuitive medium, does she sense a paranormal presence in the building? 17:28
  • Ginger is also the owner of Missouri History and Hauntings. Does she think there’s any truth to the Milton legend? 21:02
  • Schools hold lots of energy from decades of students coming and going, memories, experiences, and history. Is it that residual energy that people claim to feel and experience here?  22:51
  • Getting a brief tour of the building, meeting Buford, and stumbling into THE boiler room! 25:06
  • Leaving Maeva’s and feeling silly about focusing on the legend and the paranormal, when there is so much more to the Milton. And why is it that I sleep like a baby in “the most haunted” places? 26:44
  • If you have stories or have had paranormal experiences from the Milton Schoolhouse, please contact me! I’d love to hear about your experiences. 28:36
  • Catching up with Ginger Collins-Justus and talking about some upcoming events she’s planning. Be sure to listen to Ginger’s previous appearance on episode 23 of the podcast. 32:50
  • The Milton is SO much more than a place for paranerds to fantasize about! It’s a super cool community and a place for inspiration. Please visit the website for the Milton Schoolhouse! Visit the “news” link in the menu for a beautiful blog written by Meredith. I read nearly every blog entry. It chronicles the journey they’re taking at the Milton. Many of you might appreciate the post titled Paranormal Preservationists. 36:13
  • Look forward to an upcoming Milton Schoolhouse episode from our friends over at the History Goes Bump podcast! 38:29
  • Hey Meredith, can you repeat that? 39:03
  • Outro 40:06
  • Paranerdal Hashtag 41:41

Thank you, Meredith and Ginger!!

Intro :41

Thank you for your contributions to this episode! 1:24

Pouring the tea! Today Patrick is drinking “Eye of the Hawk” tea by the sponsor of today’s episode, Nuwati Herbals. 1:44

First up is psychic medium, author, paranormal investigator, and television personality, Michelle Belanger (from Travel Channel's Portals to Hell and episode 152 of the Big Seance Podcast) and her recommendation for meditation in the shower. 3:08

Next up is previous guest, Joni Mayhan, who last joined us with DeAnna Simpson in episode 159 on the Hanover Haunting. She has advice on connecting with spirit guides by staying grounded and being mindful, raising vibration, and being present. 8:01

Amber Choisella is a metaphysical and spiritual counselor and was on the show in episode 133. Her advice is for meditation and “sitting in the power” techniques. 13:46

Next up is a listener named Christine. She’s been on the show with great feedback a few times before! Today’s advice is to stay mindful. 15:49

Author and spiritual medium, Claire Broad, is a good friend of the show, and joined us most recently in episode 149. Using a photograph of your loved one in spirit to gain a closer connection. 16:54

Next up is Angel Medium, Michael Terzi, who is probably a familiar voice, because he was just with us in last week’s episode! He recommends meditation, strengthening our physical senses, and discusses intuition and the phenomenon of ringing in the ears. 18:38

Now to a listener named Gretchen, who uses a combination of recorded music, crystals, and aromatherapy oils in her spirit communication. 28:37

Here’s another voice that will be familiar to you. International bestselling author, Theresa Cheung, is another good friend of the show, and most recently she was on episode 127 with Dr. Julia Mossbridge. Theresa’s tip? Remember your dreams. 33:11

Professional intuitive, author, and host of the Shift Your Spirits Podcast, Slade Roberson is another friend of the podcast and was most recently in episode 148. Fitness, rebooting your energy, and avoiding being top-heavy and frazzled! 34:56

Astrologer Dena DeCastro has been on the show several times and is a great friend to the show. Her last appearance was in episode 134. Movement, an altar space, prayer, and tarot helps insure a great day for Dena! 40:32

The contribution that I wanted to end the show with today is from friend Ash Riley, who is an Intuitive Personal Development Mentor. Most recently, she joined Slade Roberson in episode 132. Ash’s wisdom for us today is beautiful and I think is very much needed with what the world is currently going through. “You ARE spirit.” 42:05

Synchronicity!

I recently found this podcast through the looking glass of Facebook and similar interests... and I am so glad that I did! It is so refreshing to hear “the other side- subculture- controversial” viewpoints about everything that I nerd out about on my own! This is what I would love to have discussions about as well with all of the interviews on this podcast. Rock on, paranerds!

Fantastic!
