MonsterTalk #020 - The Columbus Polgergeist

MonsterTalk Episode #20

Early in March of 1984, the Ohio newspaper The Columbus Dispatch began to tell the tale of a 14 year old girl who was undergoing a terrible ordeal. Objects in her house began to fly across the room and smash. Clocks ran faster than normal. Silverware and china flew and broke. Several witnesses reported seeing these terrifying events and a newspaper man caught photos of a telephone flying through the air in front of the frightened teen.

Tina Resch, a foster child, was in the care of a couple who, over the course of 31 years would take care of over 250 foster children. Was she just seeking attention? Or was she being plagued by the terrifying paranormal phenomena known as a POLTERGEIST?

We talk with James “The Amazing” Randi on his recollections of this case and on the tragic life of a poltergeist victim. Randi highlights the case in his upcoming book, A Magician in the Laboratory (digital excerpt).

Downright enjoyable & a great answer to the folks who like to say, "What harm does ib do to believe?".

Might I suggest an episode on Gef? You know who/what I mean.

You may. It's a favorite of both Karen and I. And certainly a future episode.
