Carrie tells Ross about her journey to overcome a snake phobia, on her own, through the psychological principle of exposure. They discuss the nature of “specific phobia”, and the different ways one can manage or overcome fears. Follow along as Carrie works her way from Rikki-Tikki-Tavi to the LA Zoo, to holding a boa constrictor. Plus, did you ever think about how stressful a waiver is? Apparently Carrie has.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!

A tarot card designer, Bigfoot hunter, demon summoner, angel contactee, priest, historian, actor, screenwriter, song composer, director, veteran, and micronationalist. Ross reads his adventures in paranormal investigation, while Carrie explores his work in print and on screen.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!

Ross and Carrie learn the mysterious ways of the Holy Spirit Board, a tongue-in-cheek method to contact Jesus Christ in the same manner as an Ouija board. Then, they make Golly (a cat) wear a tinfoil hat of unknown origin. Will Golly stop liking boxes? Is there a heaven? Where is Jimmy Hoffa buried? Find out this and more. And long live Ella Poppy.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie attend yet another strange presentation by investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe. Howe announces some of her most astonishing and explosive research to date, including new government whistleblowers, an updated map of alien civilizations and human origins, insectoid aliens poised for attack, and the world-changing events we can expect in… April 2023?We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie share tales of the legendary lake monster, examining sightings from 565 A.D. to present. In the process, they check in with the Loch Ness webcam, the History Channel, Ted Danson, and Scottish tour guides - including a live boat tour of the loch. Does Ross discover an ancient plesiosaur trapped in the highlands? Or maybe just a giant eel? Or does he completely fail to see the Loch Ness Monster? Plus, Carrie needs to get over that submarine incident.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Carrie tells Ross about Deborah King's presentation "Embrace Your Cosmic Origin." After an Akashic Record visit or three, they learn more about Deborah's training, legal history, cancer diagnosis, and history as a member of an alien civilization. Plus, a possible explanation for the sounds and sensations Deborah experiences. With updates on Sound of Freedom, Drew's kidney stone, and the rock Ella Poppy (a dog) swallowed.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Do you hear that? No, it's not a bald eagle (you don't want to hear that); it's the Sound of Freedom. Ross and Carrie watch this controversial biopic, which claims to represent the true story of Tim Ballard and his paramilitary, anti-sex-trafficking charity, Operation Underground Railroad. Critics say the film is QAnon propaganda; fans say it's the most important film of our time. Ross and Carrie discuss this not-available-on-streaming, deeply average movie.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Let's head back to The Ark Encounter! Ross talks with Dan Phelps, president of the Kentucky Paleontological Society and persistent thorn in the side of creationist Ken Ham. Learn why Answers in Genesis didn't get its desired location for the Creation Museum, why they only paid $1 for 98 acres of land, how their parking lot pays for the corporate jet, and why their online responses are so Ham-fisted.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross talks with Brian Dunning of Skeptoid about his new film The UFO Movie THEY Don't Want You To See. What are the chances of intelligent alien life existing elsewhere in the universe, and what is the likelihood of us striking up a conversation? How do you assemble a dream team to investigate UFO claims? Does Jimmy Carter still believe he saw a UFO, or has the FO been I? Plus, Brian shares some of his own sightings and their fascinating solutions.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Healer Gail Thackray demonstrates her incredible reincarnation-monitoring abilities on a fawning crowd. Then she leads Carrie and the others in a memory regression session to explore the past-life origins of their body memories. Finally, Gail “attunes” Carrie's “psychic opening,” thus preparing Carrie to give past life healings to scads of friends and listeners. Listen in awe as a blind woman is not healed, a lot of people learn they were once Native American, and a lady with no brother is told she kinda has a brother when you think about it.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie analyze the recent Congressional hearing in which self-identified government whistleblowers declare that the U.S. has long conspired to cover up ongoing contact (and conflict) with extraterrestrials. Does the government have flying saucer fragments in their possession? Have they experimented on alien bodies? How many whistleblowers exactly do these three guys represent? We'd tell you, but it would have to be in private.
Carrie receives a group healing session from Gail Thackray, a spiritual healer, medium, and Reiki master who instantly treats “body trauma,” the alleged corporeal residue of negative personal experiences. Listener, do you have lower back pain? News flash: you've got daddy issues. And Gail can heal them in seconds. Plus, Ross discovers an internal inconsistency between the typical reincarnation myth and its tellers.We have social media: Twitter! X? Facebook!
When Carrie's husband Drew is diagnosed with a large kidney stone, he and Carrie go to the local rickety roller coaster in the name of citizen science. Then they tell Ross all about their scientific findings. Will Drew's kidney stone break into tiny pieces, thanks to Santa Monica's 30-year-old West Coaster? Or is a “large” kidney stone TOO large for even a chartreuse caboose to shake it loose?We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie witness Bashar, a purported extraterrestrial entity, inhabiting a 71-year-old escape room operator. They marvel as he dispels wisdom to a room of fans eager to be roasted by their favorite alien. Topics include parenting advice, interstellar contact, theories of comedy, and a BIG announcement for what might happen in the future! Plus, Ross and Carrie talk about Darryl Anka's low budget films and inexplicable use of poor Irish accents. We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie return to see Bashar, an alien channeled by a 71-year-old former visual effects artist. To a live, nearly sold-out crowd, Darryl Anka demonstrates his ability to connect with this multidimensional being and share wisdom from the future. Bashar takes questions from an eager crowd, and teaches about UFOs, open contact, and his special formula for purpose and lasting happiness.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross tells Carrie about attending ONRAC veteran Lori Spagna's standing-room-only talk at Conscious Life Expo 2023 on calling down divine guidance to up-level your vibration, navigating the Multi~Dimensional Reality, “activating” your DNA, connecting with starseed ancestors and peers, and (you know it, ladies) finding your purpose. Ross analyzes Lori's unconventional views on biology, physics, and astronomy, and then asks her if she has any friends.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Carrie tells Ross about attending a maximum-capacity talk by Sylvie Sterling, a “a cat whisperer, author, intuitive healer, spiritual teacher, and ascension guide” who serves as “a bridge between cats and [their] people.” After assuring her audience that she doesn't use any science to make her determinations, she helps the group psychically evaluate the unique role that each person's cat plays in the universe. Will Carrie's cat Golly be a lover, supporter, joybringer, protector, soul mate, mirror, muse, teacher, healer, or energy worker? And why is Evening Blocher so testy?We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Carrie goes to a basement meeting for folks who want to learn about immortality from a licensed therapist. Swaha Ron Holman, the creator of Anu Alchemy Ormus (a purportedly magical elixir) delivers secret knowledge about the “immortal siddhas that come and go with a physical body, materializing and de-materializing their physical form.” Ya really had to be there.We have social media: Twitter!

Ross tells Carrie what she missed during LightNet's Spoon Bending Party at Conscious Life Expo 2023. Armed with weak flatware and a prayer, Ross learns about rice experiments, pendulums, quantum physics, mung beans, and the power of belief. Then he uses his potent mental powers to convince a spoon to bend. Carrie follows along at home with her least favorite spoon.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie pay pet communicator Monica Diedrich to speak with their dog and cat. Carrie asks some heartfelt questions of her 16-year-old dog Ella, while Ross tackles feline issues with Evening. “Dr. Monica” then makes a spiritual connection with each animal and reveals their innermost thoughts and feelings. Ella reveals a confusing health detail, Evening is very much a cat, and Dr. Monica gives a wild answer to the source of her doctorate. Plus, what does a cat look like when she's being channeled?We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Bob-Larson-certified exorcists Ross and Carrie flout their mentor's wisdom – and risk becoming possessed – by watching a bad Russel Crowe film. The Pope's Exorcist (Sony) is loosely based on the life of Gabriele Amorth, a priest who regularly performed exorcisms by direction of the Vatican. Chomping at the beaverneck, protestant exorcist Bob Larson went to see the film on opening weekend (not that he wanted to), so he could warn all of us NOT TO SEE IT. So Ross and Carrie saw it. Hear these two CERTIFIED EXORCISTS review the film AND some original Amorth exorcism footage!We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross reviews another talk by mystic duo TwinRay, and Carrie attends a second online class. They learn about 5D ascended relationships, the true path of divine love (it's not what you think), and the sometimes-irritated relationship between BoyRay and GirlRay.

Plus, some fascinating insight into how “Miananda Maitreya Shekinah” presented herself 6 years ago. Have you had an encounter with TwinRay? Tell us about it!We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie analyze what they know about BoyRay, the dominant voice of TwinRay, the rising It Couple of the New Age circuit.

And, they ask you to become MaxFun members and support this work.It's MaxFunDrive! Support us at https://maximumfun.org/join/We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
In honor of MaxFunDrive 2023, Ross and Carrie introduce you to TwinRay, the Ashland, Oregon couple who claim to offer healing and usher you into permanent spiritual bliss. He says he's an enlightened being; she says she's a walk-in from another plane. But Ross and Carrie say he's an Australian dude with a knack for pseudo-profundity, and she's a B-movie actress from Miami who probably got rich suing an airline. Say hello to TwinRay!We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
In the final lark of the Ark arc, Ross tells Carrie about the wild, final hours of the homeschooling conference. Time to pull out the American flags and light the fires! 80s heartthrob Kirk Cameron arrives to tell us all about puritan statuary and kick off a movement that will spread the gospel, but also teach Constitutional literacy and firearm handling.

Ross tells Carrie about the homeschool-teaching instruction he received at the Building Strong Foundations Conference, including important pedagogical questions like: What is science? How does a dictionary work? What questions can science not answer? Did you know your hair holds the key to your divinity? Turns out, the more your hair is like a primate's… the more evolution is disproven? Time to pull out some microscopes and confirm Genesis 1. Also, Ken Ham is back, and he's still pissy.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Carrie shares a talk she gave focusing on the trauma-informed community and its various expressions in therapy and on the internet. Learn how tricky it can be to define trauma, who the major contributors in this space are, and how to navigate the perilous predominance of pseudoscience and avoid the trauma trap. Ready to talk cult studies, retrospective bias, gaslighting, and DARVO? All that sexy stuff is here, and more.Find Carrie's slides and sources here.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross rounds out his final analysis of the Ark itself, including educational displays about the Tower of Babel, ancient man, and the real reason we all are here: the Gospel of Jesus Christ (whose Dad is God). Plus, flood myths from other cultures, a possibly disingenuous, bean-based argument, and a very telling analogy involving Plato. The arc of our Ark story is slowly nearing its end. (OR IS IT?)We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
We've reached the top deck of Noah's Ark, so it's time to send out the doves and see if they find land! We crack the language code, visit our  ancestors in their private rooms, learn about Ken Ham's backstory, and then hop to the other side of the barge for lessons in flood geology and the  ice age that occurred 4,000 years ago. Is climate change even happening? Plus, why is Bill Nye the Science Guy on the Ark Encounter?We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross tells Carrie about the fine science of kinds, cleaning up poop, the question of suffering, and why cartoon depictions of Noah's Ark are sent by Satan.

We're back at the Ark Encounter in Kentucky!We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross tells Carrie about some of the educational themed environments throughout the Ark Encounter, a Christian roadside attraction in Kentucky. They watch two oddly similar Noah biopics; discuss pooping on the Ark; and learn about the evils of violence, polygamy, music, metalworking, and giants. Plus, Carrie has some concerns about Noah being a shipbuilder by trade, and Ross isn't sure any of this actually happened.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
After a brief disembarkation, Ross and Carrie re-board the Ark Encounter as Ross leads Carrie through a tour of the Kentucky creationist landmark. They walk past animal topiaries and carved monuments to begin a thorough inspection of the first deck in this “historical” vessel. Exhibits are discussed in detail, from animal storage to the one thing everyone wants to know: ARE THERE DINOSAURS ON THE ARK? The answer may shock you. (It also might not. There are only two options.)We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie review 2023 predictions from all manner of psychic sources around the globe, and add their own. Plus, they announce two winners of Best Predictor 2022! Is Ross or Carrie more psychic?

Ho ho ho! Here is a holiday special that forgets it's a holiday special within minutes! It's about a magician named James Randi, who dedicated his life to exposing dishonesty among psychics, faith healers, and other paranormal purveyors. Carrie remembers the six months she worked with Randi, and Ross explains the related paranormal testing operation with which he volunteers.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
It's another trip to the Ark Experience in Kentucky! This time, Ross learns the miraculous properties of water and how to responsibly light his friends on fire. Next, Carrie and Ross look critically at a homeschooling class on Teaching Critical Thinking. Does the Bible simply offer good advice, or is knowing the Bible itself critical thinking, which flows directly from the Godhead? The answer may not surprise you. Also, Ross takes what might be the most uniquely American photo.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross is back at the Ark Experience in Kentucky, where he joins a bunch of homeschooling mothers in the kitchen for the busy mom's guide to romance, sees the full Armor of God in the flesh, and finally memorizes all the key events of the Old Testament using hand motions. Carrie is equally fascinated by chief busy mom Heidi St. John, but can she stay awake through the Bible lesson? It's an adventure that is positively Ze-rubbable!We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross checks out the gift shop before heading to his favorite event of his entire Ark Encounter: a tour led by Tim Chaffey, content manager for Answers in Genesis's attractions division. As Ross passes through musically themed halls with a group of headphone-wearing homeschoolers, Tim details the math, analytics, and something you might call science that went into building the Ark Encounter.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross begins his journey around the Ark Encounter theme park, stopping first to board the Truth Traveler time machine that will take him all the way back to antediluvian times.

Meanwhile, Carrie is in paradise.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
While Carrie floats away on her pro-evolution Galapagos honeymoon, Ross boards a “life-size Noah's Ark,” shipwrecked in rural Kentucky, to attend a homeschooling conference for frightened Christian parents. Right off the bat, he learns key doctrinal issues including: which 11 chapters of the Bible have all the answers; what separates a boat from a ship; and when and why you should marry your sister.We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie experiment with FoodMarble, a “digestive breath testing device” that purports to use hydrogen levels to interpret fermentation and gut health. Plus, they drink entire glasses of isolated carbs to see which ones make them miserable. Fun!We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Carrie, the first person to ever have COVID, tells Ross about her intractable symptoms, and get-well-fast scheme: a little-known medicine called Ivermectin (not the horse version). While some people (read: scientists) might consider it a parasite treatment with unproven efficacy for COVID, Carrie can't resist something that might make her poop her pants. Will she?! Plus, they discuss public health policy, tolerating grey areas, and how we approach science at the edges. We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross talks from across the globe with Sanal Edamaruku, Indian-born author, rationalist and free speech activist, about his investigations into tantric curses, weeping Jesus statues, moving Mary statues, spontaneous combustion, yogic flying, reincarnated millionaires, and much more. We also revisit previous ONRAC investigations such as Amma the hugging saint and the Self-Realization Fellowship for additional insights. And Carrie reminds everyone not to get COVID!We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie rectify their rectums by hand pumping old, weak coffee into their butts. The Implant-O-Rama is the new thing in colonic irrigation for the DIY type, and Ross and Carrie are nothing if not DIT. Will their gut flora improve? Will their toxins deplete? Does their productivity improve? Will Carrie's IBS disappear? Will Ross hate coffee more in his mouth or up his butt? Plus, tips for hiding your coffee enema habit from your spouse. All this and more, in this painfully gross episode!We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie spend a couple of weeks forgoing their normal morning routines in favor of Bulletproof Coffee, “the original keto coffee,” which promises to improve their energy, focus, fat-burning, productivity, and emotional stability. Keeping careful logs (you know they will), they chart their experience with this butter-and-oil-laden coffee and compare it to their usual output. Are they bulletproof now? Were they bulletproof before? Does this phrase have a meaning? Find out!We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!
Ross and Carrie welcome Alice Greczyn, an actress and author of the memoir Wayward: Spiritual Warfare and Sexual Purity. In this funny and painful retelling, a tide of evangelical Christianity sweeps over Alice's working class family, convincing her parents that God has called them to a life of voluntary poverty. Now, years later in Los Angeles, she sits down with Ross and Carrie to talk about purity culture, revival “miracles,” and the psychological burdens of writing a memoir. We have social media: Twitter! Facebook!

Ross and Carrie imbibe Magic Mind, a special morning blend of nootropics and adaptogens (read: brain stuff and calm stuff) that will make them super-workers with tremendous output.

Carrie's brand new husband got her a very good gift: a 1994 VHS about UPC bar codes ushering in the end of the world. She and Ross ponder Reverend John Shepherd's stern warning that the end is coming any day now, and ask if 10,000 days is enough yet. Plus, one of their favorite movies is finally available for download, and Alex Jones is available for takedown.For pics and videos, follow us on Facebook!
