BoA:Audio, Season 8 goes LIVE once again with another jam packed edition of the program. In the first hour, paranormal researcher, blogger, and podcaster Lon Strickler joins us to discuss his work exploring the esoteric as well as his personal experiences with the paranormal. In the second hour, we are joined by human mutilation researcher Butch Witkowski, who details the latest info on the infamous Todd Sees case which he and Lon have been extensively investigating.

Clairvoyance, Bigfoot, a terrifying abduction case, and celebrity autographs are the tent poles of hour one with Lon and then hour two is simply a dissection, by Butch and Lon, of the bizarre and baffling Todd Sees death where so many official 'facts' about the case make no sense and a myriad of strange details add a chilling layer to the already odd case.

Altogether it is a riveting edition of the program which covers a wide array of strange topics as well as focuses on one specific and very troubling tale that demands further investigation as Lon Strickler and Butch Witkowski join us to talk about the esoteric and Todd Sees.

Highlights: We kick things off with the standard bio / background on Lon Strickler and find out how he entered into the esoteric. He tells us about his clairvoyant experiences as a teenager, which leads into him talking about his breathtaking Bigfoot encounter that happened in 1981. Lon recounts his experience with great detail and graciously allows for Binnall's questions about some of the curious aspects of the event. We also discuss the strange level of police involvement in the case which arose after Lon reported it to authorities.

This leads to Lon telling us about the Sykesville Monster outbreak which also struck the area in previous years and may have been a similar creature to what Lon had seen. This segues into some talk and speculation about the nature of Bigfoot and what its origins may be. From there, we talk more about Lon's clairvoyance and his work doing remote viewing. We then pivot and learn about Lon's fantastic website, Phantoms and Monsters.

Lon also details the very strange David Eckhart case, where a family was allegedly abducted by ETs with remarkable regularity to the point that they were being taken 'twice a week for ten years.' We delve into the odd photographic evidence, whether there was communication between Ekhart and the ETs, the seemingly miraculous healing effect that befell Eckhart, and truly frightening events witnessed by Eckhart during his encounters with the aliens.

Closing out the 1st hour, we find out about Lon's work in the realm of celebrity autographs and he reveals how 9/11 ended up changing the autograph collection industry. We also talk about what is a 'hot' autograph right now as well as the types of folks who buy autographs and the difficult process a 'full cast' signed picture.

We then move into the 2nd hour and welcome Butch Witkowski to the program and he first provides an update on his work researching human mutilations. From there, we dive right into the Todd Sees case, which has been investigated extensively by Lon and Butch. Bringing newcomers up to speed, we have Butch provide listeners with a thumbnail on the Todd Sees case and what makes it so flummoxing.

We learn about the seemingly inconsistent findings from the autopsy and toxicology reports as well as the timeline of events with regards to the search for the missing Sees and the eventual discovery of his body. This turns into some speculation over why there appears to be an epic cover up surrounding what really became of Todd Sees, including the possible involvement of a UFO.

Digging further into the case, we ponder why the family of Todd Sees has seemingly not expressed any outrage of bewilderment over how his death was handled by the police. Lon and Butch reveal some of the latest information surrounding the case which has emerged since they first started investigating it as well as how it seems like there are 'others' out there who know more about Todd Sees and may eventually come forward with new info.

We continue examining the anomalies surrounding the Sees case, including the stunning lack of blood found in the body after it was discovered and how the authorities ultimately turned over a sealed casket to the Sees family with instructions to not open it. We also delve into the potential for secret government bases being involved in the case or even a Bigfoot element tied into Sees' death.

Heading towards the close of the conversation, we speculate on what could possibly provide another avenue of research for this seemingly cold but very bizarre case. We also find out if Lon or Butch have been told any information by anonymous sources or perhaps warned to stop looking into the case by the 'powers that be.' Lon also reveals suggested avenues of investigation that were imparted to him by an intuitive. And, wrapping up the show, we find out what's next for Lon and Butch as well as where folks can find out more from them.
