Q Transmissions on YouTube

Nathan has posted the séance video!

Visit our beautiful new YouTube channel to look for any errant orbs, fleeting flickers or inappropriate supernatural sexual activity. Oh, how I wish I was joking about that last part.



Seance show links

Thanks so much to everyone who donated!

We raised $1,420 on our show and brought the FunDrive grand total to over $100,000! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Everyone who donated gets a Q Transmissions sticker. Congrats to our two grand prize winners – one gets din-din (Hooters!) w/ Des and I, the other gets to pick a show topic. Whee!!

Here are some of the links, well, all of the links, I used to prep for tonight’s seance show.

The ever helpful Wikipedia

About.com’s How to Conduct a Seance

How to from the New Age Directory

The Ideomotor effect

Bible versus condemning contacting the dead

I know, I’m an atheist, so what do I care what the Bible says? Well, I usually don’t. However, there are some smart bits in there, like this one: “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.” – Leviticus 19:31 (okay, except for the last sentence…)

Chriss Angel does a seance, part one, two, and three.

Derren Brown does a seance (and does a much better job), part one, two, three, four, five, and six.

Again, a HUGE thanks to all who donated. CJSR cannot exist without the support of its listeners. I’d write, “bless you”, but that’s not very becoming of an atheist. Um, how about “thank Science for you”? No, too South Park. I know: thanks. Thanks so very, very much.

Seance update!

This Friday will be our second FunDrive show. We did well last week, but we wanna do weller this week.

Our next show will be our scariest ever, I hope. We’re going to spend the first half of the show talking about the history of the seance. In the second half, we’re actually gonna hold one, live in the studio. Our biggest fan, Nathan, will be videotaping it, so check in again after the show to see the video.

A reminder of the things that might entice you to donate (other than ’cause it’s the right thing to do):

– get a Q Transmissions sticker

– a chance to pick a topic for the show – you pick, Des & I research, find a guest, and give it our all

– a chance to have dinner w/ me & Des – we even pick up the tab

Last week’s winner of a movie w/ us was thrilled. Thrilled, I say! You could feel this thrill – if you give CJSR money.

How to donate: www.cjsr.com, or 780-492-2577, ext. 1.

Do it.

This week’s show

Posted in links, upcoming shows by Heather on October 14, 2008


So this week we’re gonna talk about cold reading. In order to prepare, I’m throwing out an invitation. If you believe, would you consider letting me try to read you?

If you’re game, shoot me an email (check the contact page). I’d like to do some readings in the CJSR studio to record and use on-air.

Also, a quiz. Please take it, skeptic or no, and call in or email your results this Friday at 6 p.m., MST. Live on 88.5 FM or http://www.cjsr.com.

See you Friday!
