My mom was in a nursing home and you know definitely, it was a va nursing home and they you know they treated him well but it just I couldn't imagine you know the end of your life. You know in that would be your last impression on life in I'm sure that's why a lot of times like you say haunting. are still around because you know it wasn't what they wanted needed. In thought that their life would end that way. So I still think though like. My grandma was in a nursing home and last thing in the world she wanted last thing but nobody wants. Nobody, you know. Although I always joke with my mom and she's like, can you help me open this pickle jar on Mike, you're going in the home. Can't take care of yourself. Obviously. Your MOM's. Ten minutes. I think that that that guilt is ours right? Like that's they're gone. They're not staying around there. That's not where they're gonNA haunt. They're free now but that guilt. Eats it us in haunts us like Oh could I have taken? Could I quit my job and taking care of Mama Grandma home or could i. have done this or could I have done that and those are the things that literally haunt us and I think we kind like call up this impression, call the spirit of them because we we all wrestle with those things right? How do you live your own life? How do you respect the past respect each other and then you know not be haunted. I David Bowie I'm big Fan.

Live our life live up to the fullest or something like that. Only forget we were talking about the book and I know, no, it's good. No, it's. Funny though because you know. To me, this is bigger rate.

It's my sincere hope the right ghost story Avis all well, you know in in you've had a life changing experience that made you write this next book. And like I said, how does it tie into? You know all your books you've written on Ghost. Hunting's and stuff like that. So the call of Kilimanjaro. Tell us how this book relates to what you have been writing about in what inspired you to do this. So Mount Kilimanjaro. I sort of I heard about it in the eighties. Thanks to the toto song by Africa. Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus of the ceremony. So I always had this like neat fascination with Africa in College I took two semesters of Swahili kind of a long story that we don't have to get into. That's why he leaves the language of east African. My Mom's like when you ever gonNA use that. So I I like mountains, I've been a hiker since college I, I live in New England hike the White Mountains and I love getting away from it all and and doing all that. So Kilimanjaro had been on my bucket list for years. And then a few years ago two, thousand, thirteen, my brother-in-law got cancer. And he was at the time, he was forty, four and young. And and it was one of these one of these cancers that you know he was losing weight and then they ran some tests at one day. His doctor calls him at work and says. Come down here right now don't make an appointment. Don't wait for the end of the day stop whatever you're doing in down here, and he knows that's not good. Any learns he had stage four cancer fully metastasized and he's got eighteen to twenty four months to live. And he and I got a lot closer during that those two years right and so we we talked a lot. My sister was in denial. She didn't WanNa talk about it You know he said I'm going to fight but in reality he just sunk into a deep depression and I'm not judging I. Don't know how I would face a death sentence like that. But after a while after about a year, he's conditions getting worse but his mental attitude is getting better and we're talking a lot about this really slow dance with death and he called me and he said look you're into some weird stuff and I think that's totally fair and he said I'm going through something pretty weird and I said that is also totally fair. You know most of us, death is supposed to be a surprise. You know you go to bed one night and you don't wake up you have a heart attack it's over car accident boom. It's done. You're not supposed to see it coming for two years like that's that's a brutal. Brutal thing to go through. Bright. So as he got near the end, he was having these out of body experiences where he talked about Starting to see things and so on, and he would only talk to me about it because he knew about my background. and. So when he got to the very end, you know we talked about these this deeply spiritual thing that he was going through and this this guy was practically an atheist when I met him. And near the end, he was just this like golden being of light just no no anger to anybody just just at peace with everything that was happening forty six years old, which.

"Same thing. It's it's a some type of energy. So Let's stay on path for one second. That's talking about getting feelings when you go to places how about when you go to visit family or friends and you walk in and you just go oh, something's wrong. Okay like. You're sad I can tell that you are said that is empathy right and we all and you if you don't experience that and some people don't by the way, there's a word for it and that word is psychopath. No it's he's Been Empathy. Then that's trouble right you should be able to pick up on the emotions of other living people and if you can pick up on other living people then. Why not people that were there before? You said you you did some traveling and you went to Australia give some of the places in Australia because you know here in America, we don't really hear much about the Australian haunted most haunted places. So give us a couple places down there. So the I I got to go to manning quarantine station and this place was brutal right outside of Sydney. This is where this was like their Ellis Island. You know when when immigrants were coming to Australia, they had to go through the man in quarantine station and they were just the aussies were brutal. Hey, did you sneeze get in the room right? You're not you're not going onto the mainland until we're sure you're not sick and they put you in a room full of people that might have yellow fever, all kinds of other stuff. So you could just had a cold before, and now you're in the room with yellow fever and you know you're. Going to get that. So they, they would separate families people died by the truckload on this island because they didn't want any sick strange diseases coming into the country and you can still walk around the old barracks, the old bunk houses and things like that, and this is just one of those places where again when you know the story when you know the history, you can just imagine like being pulled away from your parents or your kids pulled away from you and thrown into one of these rooms because they're sick and you may never see them again and what that must feel like that those emotions he just it just tears your heart out. To me, that's the big one 'cause that's literally the gateway to Australia was the in quarantine station. Also, got to go to jail an old jail north of Sydney and You know a a jails, a jail I don't. Right. I. Mean It's bars. It's stonewalls and your freedom is taken away and. Empathy again, you tuning into what it must have been like to be those inmates. I. Another thing was we we hear a lot about is old psych wards mental institutions. have you ever had a chance to go? At, night or mostly I probably would want to go during the day but. At night in into one of these facilities that maybe is even close down. Now how was that? How was that was that feeling? Yeah. No that's kind of my thing So for the last twelve years I've also my day job has been working for the show ghost adventures and as a writer and researcher. So and season to the show we started working on a place called Penn her style right in Spring City Pennsylvania sort of near Philadelphia down there in the corner. And when I first started working on it, I thought okay asylums and asylum. The stories are so similar between all of them. These great facilities were built. People were treated really great and humanely they were getting better. They lived as good functional lives lost funding sank conditions got overcrowded. I mean, this story just repeats right across the nation all around the world. Really. Penn hearst was so bad that there's now a federal law called the pen hearse law about how you can and can't treat people with mental disabilities because of atrocities that took place inside these buildings. And I spoke to this was the nineteen seventies by the way, nineteen seventies to play not the dark ages not the you know and so I mean patients were kept a dog Kennels they just wild and they didn't have the people to take care of him. If you bit someone more than once they pulled your teeth out so you could invite people in. And just it was horrible like absolutely horrible. There it is pinhurst asylum. So This place is just one of those. You can't forget it the first time I walked inside. I just got this feeling of sadness and well being inside of there. We went down below there's tunnels that connect some of the many buildings and I'm down there. I was actually with Zaken with my friend Dave schrader we're getting ready to film at night and we hear this like laughter way deep in the distance in this tunnel, and then there's cold blast of air just who right by us. and. We just looked at each other and my thought was like this building wants to talk. and. I mean that like it's got something to tell us in something to teach us right because if we tell this story, if we hold up this mirror to America and say look at ain't always pretty Maybe. There won't be another pen hearst in the future, right maybe I mean these are the least of our people we have to take care of them if we if we.

If before that infant was nursing at it's mother's breast, it realized that the sex play between the mother and father involved. That very breast and was grotesque. What. That grotesque, but involved body parts. You know what I'm saying? Not really. Not really. So in other words, the breast is not a sex object. Of course, it is. I could care like if the guy was Redstone, say it. So this guy's book is about that. Yes, this guy's book is about, what are you? What are you looking at?
