In between all the panels, we will be wandering around the con, so if you’re a fan and you see us, pop up and say hello; we don’t bite (much). We’re looking forward to seeing all you crazy kids there!

 

Episode Seven: The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist

On this episode, Tom and Jenny discuss the case that started it all. Jenny was primarily a horror writer until Tom told her about a horrifying poltergeist experience he had endured in 1982, when he was thirteen years old. Objects moved in impossible ways, creepy noises like human voices came out of thin air, and an eerie presence seemed to watch him and his family at every turn, and followed them to a total of three locations. Tom gives a rundown of some of the phenomena, using current pictures of one of the locations in order to jog his memory. Tom and Jenny also discuss the poltergeist activity that rekindled at their own home more than thirty years after the original incidents. If you’d like to know more about the case, Tom and Jenny wrote a book about it called The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist, and they’ve also been on a few podcasts talking about the details, such as here and here.

Episode Three: Mysterious Memory: The Mandela Effect and the Reincarnation of the Pollock Twins

Jenny and Tom explore some of the stranger outposts of human memory. First, they discuss the so-called Mandela Effect, whereby many people seemingly remember certain historical facts “incorrectly.” Is the past changing in subtle ways? Are some people overlapping from alternating timescales? Is there a glitch in the Matrix? Or is human memory simply faulty and fallible in various predictable ways?

In the second segment, they delve into the eerie case of the Pollock Twins, sometimes put forth as solid evidence for reincarnation. Were these famed girls really the reborn iteration of their dead sisters?

In between, Tom and Jenny also digress into a few of their own amusing childhood memories, involving Evel Knievel, child drunkenness, and the possibility of being one’s own grandpa.
