Professor WHAM - Dr. CS Matthews, 5.2.21 - Paranormal, UFO, Serial Killer? Haunts Past, Present and Hudson Valley
"The Multi-Verse is weird and we like it." - Dr. CS Matthews, Professor WHAM
About the book: "This isn’t a book for tourists or a field guide, but rather detailed survey of individuals who, by virtue of their history and place, have become accustomed to living with extraordinary experiences and/or encounters with the paranormal. From ghosts to aliens, Bigfoot to ancient ceremonial sites, time displacements and spiritual visions, the testimony of witnesses and investigators speak of mysteries encountered in the legendary, wonderous beautiful landscapes of the Hudson Valley in New York."
Bio: Dr. CS Matthews has studied religion, new religious movements, occultism and paranormal experiences for over 4 decades, has advanced degrees in Religious Studies and American Cultural Studies and is an ardent environmentalist. She has practiced Sufism for two decades and has studied Swedish-Finnish runes/shamanism and Mid-Hudson Algonquin Indigenous traditions from native teachers.
What isn't covered in the book? The fact she lived in a haunted house in Olathe, Ks. and serial killer Bob Berdella was a business acquaintance.
We had so much more to cover but no time to include it in the interview - so - we'll reconnect and pick up the thread.
