"A hi. and we are back with John Olson his latest book stranger west is website linked up it coast to coast AM at dot com John what do you think the people love the paranormal I mean the show was driven by the paranormal it has been for years what do you think draws people to it you know it I think it's just the unknown the the belief that that you know there are things out there that we can't explain whether it's you know scientifically yet were whatever it is and whether you know with some people's passion are UFOs and some are big foot cryptids and just the fact that that there's you know questions out there that need to be answered and that that they're almost this feeling of magic still in the air that has people you know you know driving towards a goal and a lot of people when they have a paranormal experience whether it's a ghost or UFO or whatever it is and they want to understand what it was that happened to them they want to know you know what it is that that they've seen and I think that really drives people on I remember as a child room as the as a I guess a young adult and watching the show on fox about the magician that would show trick and then he would show how it was done and I remember being so angry as a kid because it seems like it almost wiped away the magic right the surprise the all who will get the on surprise of it but I think it's that that part that we all have inside of us that still you know like a kid inside that we want to we want to believe and we want to understand indefinitely with you know we all we all are going to pass through and and pass on we're you know none of us get out of this alive so it's it's that wanting to understand. you know that there is something after this life helps people as well and also the you know those of us who have long lost loved ones the stories help us to understand that that they may be physically gone but they're not completely gone and I think that brings comfort to people as well the calls with John Olson next hour in may in the perhaps even your paranormal stories is there a dark side to the paranormal and John yeah definitely there is and most of the stories that I write about are are generally people who have stumbled across something by accident and there are definitely things that you can stumble come across I I think for example I interview to a gentleman named Tyler and his stories in the book and him and his girlfriend Jill it was the early two thousands and he was not an outdoorsman but she'd grown up camping in so he promised to take her camping so they've gone they the live just outside of sparks Nevada and they went to the the Sierra mountains did you find a place to camp. and they did and they have a nice evening he said that was a really heavy scary feeling to it but he just attributed that the fact that he he never really camped before never spent the night in the wilderness and in the middle of the night he woke up to a strange sound of someone walking in the camp and they seem to have a heavy racks in the you know deep. he and not like an animal no not like an animal animal he said it was two on two feet when he went to grab a flashlight he knocked something off in the tent and and the creature ran a little ways off he was able to get a flashlight and open up the door and shine it around and his flashlight hit the beam hit this this person what he originally thought was a person standing about thirty feet from him facing away from him he said that running away where was standing there bracing itself against the tree he was a Macy aided skinny you could see is pale skin you could see all of the bones you know in his back and at first he thought maybe it was homeless person he called out to it and Hey what's going on and it turned over its shoulder to look at him and he said the aegis yes he is the branch just calm this throat because the eyes were sunken in this the lips were pulled back from like the cool or something yes exactly and his girlfriend side as well and they both jumped up and. through all of their stuff in the in the Congress even this campsite right now I am taking off I'm out of here and he was you know just even interviewing him so many years after just the fear in his voice you know it was something very out of the ordinary and in doing some research I I I believe they went ran into what what is called a Windigo which is a native American spirit creature that's created whenever an individual turns to cannibalism is their belief okay yeah and so definitely that in that case was something evil something just dark and an extremely scary what is it about the Colonel John that even the toughest person could break down like these people in one a high tail it out of there. you know I it's just the unknown and a lot of times especially in in this person's case they were come face to face with something they never imagined was possible something out of a movie out of it and you know a horror film and I think that you know it even takes your brain a few moments to maybe even it takes years for you to go through and and really break apart what happened to you and it can be an extremely scary situation. not good so no other cryptids of course we get a we get in you mentioned earlier big foot stories that happens and I get I guess that. western type part of the United States gets a lot of big foot storage to doesn't it does yeah I get quite a few big foot stories would you say thirty percent of your paranormal stories are big foot related I'm again I'm probably close to that yeah and there's a good and makes your but yeah cool for definitely on cryptids that the vast majority of those are our big foot as sightings in northern Utah seems to seems to be quite a few of those in northern Utah and again through the U. into mountains it seems to be a hot spot for him. John Olsen with this is we're talking about his work stranger west of of all the stories that you've uncovered which ones of course would you categorize as the weirdest. what kind of stories you know I probably would go back to either cryptids or again the glitches in the matrix some of those just that it seemed to make no sense whatsoever and they don't seem to be tied to anything where you could you know if it's a haunting you can tie that to a ghost the war if the decrypted you're gonna tie it to a creature or a spirit in the forest glitches in the matrix seem to be just abnormal things that that almost seem to to toy with your brain in it you know changing your memories or you know coming face to face with the doppelganger which has happened just really strange things like that can be seen to be able to turn your whole world up on on its nose and I I think that one is really hard to explain to people well I think so too now you know with some of these stories do you ever come across stories of the devil popping up anywhere. you know I I have not been done a lot of those like I said I have the interview people who have had experiences with we do boards and come across spirits that that pretend to be one thing but are in fact another I really run into very few demonic kind of things I find lately when I interview people because of some of the television shows or because of some of the media that's out there they automatically turn to believe all I've got a demon in my house when when I interview or help them you know it can be anything from just simple things to the house or even just a haunting which you know ninety nine percent of the time I believe is just somebody who's passed on and I have a right to I like to tell people that you know even though someone's past on it's just like meeting people on the street and nine out of ten are going to be in fairly good people it's that that tenth person that may be not the best person in the world that you want to be dealing with so what do you see the other side is like life after death you know I think that it's a closer than we think I think it's almost like there is a veil between us and and those that have passed on and. and in certain circumstances whether it's an that a loved one or someone who lived in the area or is attached to a certain object and it's pretty easy that we might come across and I definitely believe that there are those that are more sensitive to that and may have more experiences that way gifts if you would but I definitely think that they're out there and they're they're all around some helpful from now on well I think so too John Olsen again with us his books latest book stranger west Piramal true stories from western United States are you ever going to branch out to the east coast. you know I hope so I hope so like I said you know I'm still collecting stories and still going a I have a couple from Texas now and just recently so definitely going to be expanding a I think that the paranormal is all over and some of my favorite things to do is after I get a story whenever I can to travel to the area and get a feel for it on my own and so I definitely would love to travel even further through the United States and and just learn more and more about the paranormal in folklore which I believe goes hand in hand with paranormal stories things that that start out as activity or experienced people have and passed down through generations as folklore. normal aspects that you've investigated which is the one that you personally you would like to witness hi I would really like to see a Sasquatch are big for you what I would yeah that that something that I would love to do at growing up I was quite the outdoorsman and when I was in high school there you know can whenever my friends were skipping school to go to the the mall or out to dinner I was skipping to go fishing or hiking and so I've spent a lot of time up there and maybe I've been close but ultimately I would love to have that experience of of seeing a Sasquatch. would you want to see somebody who was departed. yeah I mean I I believe in my experience I have I've seen a full body operation in the home that I grew up in and yeah definitely wouldn't be alright with having loved one who's passed on come back in and and talk to me I'd be alright with that what do you think he teasing you who's really arja all that's a good question you know I think a lot of what we see our our governments and aircraft but that can't explain everything that we. it would be absurd to think that we were alone in the universe with everything in it that were learning about different planets and that life is probably not as rare as we originally font. I also believe that you know for a long time people thought they were probably so far away there's no way they could get here however I honestly.

"We've got a nother great paranormal investigative based show tonight with John Olsen coming up. He is an investigator. He's written a couple of books that chronicle strange occurrences in western part of the country. And we're going to talk about the books. We're gonna talk about his investigations and his experiences. But did you hear this new story out of Florida? We often talk about and we have people on the program that are part of the church of Satan. That that that discussion. There's a lot of controversy when it comes to that. And we offer bring this stuff up. But fortunately doesn't happen as often as people might think it does. But it happened or it almost happened today. Two girls in a I think it was a middle school. Who consider themselves Satan worshippers plotted to kill at least fifteen of their fellow students in this particular middle school in Florida. According to police middle school girls who believe themselves to be Satan worship. We're there. We're their parents. I know I know they brought knives to school. They were going to do this with knives. In the way, they were going to do it was they were going to stay in the girls room in the bathroom. And as girls would come in one by one they were going to kill them with knives. Is wrong with people they were sixth and seventh grade girls and at one thirty pm yesterday, the Bartow police school resource officer which was assigned to the school. Was called into the principal's office because a teacher had discovered the girls basically, the teacher saw them with a couple of strange objects not knives, but made the teacher suspicious enough to look a little bit more closely and in their backpacks. They had these a butcher knife data pizza cutter they had a knife sharpener. They had a bunch of other various utensils and knives. And and they admitted their plot. They were going to sit there and wait till kids came in and they were going to wait for the smaller ones to come in. So that they could overpower them and make them their victims. What has what what is wrong with the world today? I don't know. I mean, these kids were eleven and twelve years old. I mean, he reminds me of the of the case of the two girls that were supposedly influenced by slender man and ended up stabbing one of their very very close friends as a tribute to slender, man. Fortunately, the girl survived. But man, and this goes a little. Further because the according to police these girls intended to slay these victims, and then they were going to drink their blood that was their plan. Now, let me do you think that it's non-involvement from the parents? I mean, my children never really had any issues with them, especially no, no, violent issues like this or or just strange things of that nature. We've always been very involved in their wives and very open discussion. And it just it really makes you wonder doesn't it? Well, I, you know, I often think that too. I feel the same way I'm close to my kids, and I've always been a big party. Oh. Admit to I've always been a big part of their everything they do whether they like it or not I've been a big. And and you know, so we've grown close there. They've grown up close that way. But you know, and so you assume that the kids that stray in this particular way, their parents aren't paying attention. But then again, I hear stories of and maybe it's just the way it's portrayed. But I hear stories of kids that do similar things that have a an ideal family life, and you in which makes you scratch your head even more. How how can they be in a very very loving, comfortable, home and still stray that way? So I suppose it's not isolated to those that aren't being paid paid attention to other parents, but you'd have to think that the more apparent is involved, the more likely that they would avoid these types of things. And that was the thing when we when I involved in TV, and unanimous, Jim you, and I started hanging out very shortly. After the whole the whole thing was I never wanted to miss a holiday a birthday, a family thing. I never missed a father daughter dance. I was I was here all the time for everything of any importance. I was here for all the kids games. And and you name it and. Still staying involved because that was always a fear. You you hear about a lot of these celebrities out there who spent all his time away from their family their families fall apart the kids get involved in drugs us at the other thing, and it was a terrifying thought for Chris. And I and we've always been just we've made sure we've always been there for everything. And and you've always been the same. And that's why I think this why our families have always gotten together. So well, we've gone on family vacations, together and everything. I don't know. It's but yeah, you do here. Sometimes, you know, people are still involved in the kids lives and just something business mentally unstable with that child and one final point here. The police say that they don't think the parents had any knowledge of this. I can imagine that would be true of they probably would have intervened. But you know, you got to keep an eye on your kids stay involved in their lives. And when you see something, you know, some antisocial behavior or anything that might give you a tip to the fact that they might be straying in some way, you gotta step in in in. If you need professional help, you gotta get that as well. On a lighter note. Share believes Sonny Bono comes and visits. Her on a lighter note share. The friendly ghost of Sonny Bono visits. Share according to her now Sonny Bono. Didn't he crashed into a tree ninety five? Yeah. In one thousand nine hundred ninety was yeah. He was skiing somewhere ski was a congressman at the time. Wasn't he? Yes, he was. Yeah. He was actually nothing coming up and coming politician. He's often portrayed as kind of a of the full of the group. You know, if you ever saw the teen show they had that variety show they had for while which was popular in the seventies. He's always kind of the the bumbling fool the comedic member of the team, but he was actually kind of the brains behind Sonny and Cher. He wrote some of their music managed, their business affairs. And he went on. He was looked like he was going to have a great political career and the niece obviously, couldn't avoid the tree going down a slope. Which is why I don't ski by the way.

"Eight four four six eight seven seven six six nine love to hear your paranormal occurrence or someone that you know, this is Mike calling from zuri. Hey, Mike, welcome to the program. What's up guys? You want them the show? Yes. So I'd say about thirteen fourteen years ago. I was riding four wheelers with my buddy on his farm. His grandfather was right there. And we had this track that we grow through. And then also go up and around and neighbors bar and we did like time trials. So I was going pretty fast. And as I'm topping the hill coming up towards the barn. Not even out on my peripheral just kind of off to the left right in front of the barn. I see this trial. I'd say he's about twelve thirteen years old. And he was wearing blue overalls. And I mean, he was solid. It was there was a person there. And so I go around the bar, and like we normally do and I cut the engine and I holler just to see, you know. Hey is anybody on the track? Because I you know, I didn't want him playing on the track or whatever if if we're coming around and they're going fast, and I didn't get a response. So I start the motor back up and I start heading down the hill. And I'd probably say about twenty five yards in front of me. Huge. I would say like ten twelve point buck shoot out of the woods right on the path right in front of me. And I have to slam on my brakes. I he I mean, I barely missed him. And I, you know. And I go back up nine hop off the four Wheeler, I tell my friend. It's your turn and. You know, he doesn't understand what's going on. I'm just like almost almost and later, I got the whole story outcome or whatever. And you know, he didn't know the neighbor too. Well, and I'd ask them family friends about it or whatever if anybody new like that property, and if there had ever been any tragedies, and no one could say anything about it. But what I can tell you is when I went back there. It was like it was like in the evening it wasn't dark yet. But it was getting dark. I went back there the next morning. And there was nothing blue around that bar. I mean, there was a one rusty tractor. And I mean like a power would. And that was it like there was nothing blue that could have mistaken for blue overalls like this kid was there. And I don't know if it was a ghost. I don't know if it was a guardian angel, but I truly believe that if that kid hadn't shown himself to me. I would have been right here. And I mean it to this day. I really think he saved my life. Because I think we we weren't we weren't just scooting around on that thing we were going fast. So I mean, that's that's my story. And I mean, that's my only story that I would say that goes through any kind of apparition or anything that I've ever seen. But I mean it terrified me at the time. But now looking back on it. I I really think I think that kids they've my life. Yeah. I think you've got a lot to be thankful and grateful for their and we're thankful that you shared that story with us, Mike. That's that's pretty interesting. Absolutely. All right. So we're gonna take a quick break.

One is called stranger bridge ruined. And the other is beyond stranger bridge will end and his website is stranger bridgier, Lind dot com. John welcome to beyond reality radio. Great to have young tonight. Hey, thank you guys so much for having me on and talking about some of the strange things gone on thanks for coming on. We look forward to this. So you're from northern Utah. Now, nothing strange ever happens in Utah doesn't. You know, you'd be really surprised I know that, you know, wherever you're thrown if you do some searching and digging there's there's there's stuff that goes on. But. There's been a lot that has happened. Both in my life. Age people that I you know, been able to interview and talk to help out. It's it's really kind of a strange place. And you've actually started your path of years ago. In fact, your childhood was kind of influenced by some of these types of occurrences. Tell us how you you developed your interest in the paranormal. And growing up. I grew up in a small town in northern Utah and the home that I grew up in was well over a hundred years old was built in about eighteen eighty roughly. And I remember about the age of eight years old. I started recognizing things going on in my house that didn't happen to my friend's house. And I have an older sister. She's older than me and a younger brother who's a year younger than me. And we started talking about it around that time and the experiences we were having they included stairs that go from the main floor up to the second floor. There were often somebody running up and down the stairs. And nobody being there, and you would catch voices or conversations going on. There were things that would go missing. And not show up again for a month or a couple of days or just a lot of different strange things like that that went on that really piqued my interest in my sister's interest, and we tried to talk to my parents about it. But they were very adamant that we don't talk about that with other people. I think that well, I know that there for the time being from a small town, you're worried that people are going to start thinking, you're crazy. And you know, now understanding what was going on. And at the time back, then it's it really wasn't talked about as much. Openly I guess paranormal experiences. So we had to keep it to ourselves for quite a while. I remember how I got into investigating and actually interviewing people when I was in my teens. I would have friends over and they would actually have experiences of their own in the house just visiting. And I remember one time I was upstairs in the friend of mine, and I were studying for a test and all of a sudden she threw her book down, and she stared at me, and I stopped what I was doing. And I looked at her. And I said, what's what's the matter? And she said what's going on? And I was like I'm not sure what you're talking about. And she says in the in the thirty minutes we've been here something has come up and down the stairs three times. But there's nobody on your stairs. That's going on. And you know at that time after it's happened for so long. It kind of becomes background noise. And I hadn't even really registered. But I finally, you know, said, well, you know, my house is haunted, and she found that interesting and fascinating and before long when I was out with brain or party, and they have. One of my friends would say, hey, John's house is you gotta have him tell stories about his house. And so I started sharing movies, and before long people started coming to me and saying, hey, you know, I heard that you had experiences. I wanna share my experience with you. And at that point. I started writing them down and talking to people and collecting these experiences, and as I grew up and got older, it kind of grew into even being able to help some people that we come to me and saying, you know, my my house. Worried about this and worried about that and just kind of going into and trying to help people out who were having experiences. And that's and that's what it's all about. But we're going to get into a lot more that we have to take a hard break, John. But are we're talking with John Olsen paranormal investigator about paranormal investigating his experiences stories and much more. You're listening to Jason and JV beyond reality radio.

Eight people that you been able to interview and talk to it. It's really kind of a strange. And you've actually started your path of years ago. In fact, your childhood was kind of influenced by some of these types of occurrences. Tell us how you've developed your interest in the paranormal so growing up. I grew up in a small town in northern Utah. The home that I grew up in was well over a hundred years old built in about eighteen eighty roughly. And I remember about the age of eight years old. I started recognizing things going on in my house that didn't happen to my friend's house. And I have an older sister. She's older than me and a younger brother who's a year younger than me. And we started talking about it around that time and the experiences we were having. They included stairs. Go from the main floor up to the second floor. There were often somebody running up and down the stairs. And nobody being there. And you would catch voices or conversations going on. There were things that would go missing. And not show up again for a month or a couple of days or just a lot of different strange things. Like that that went on. That really piqued my interest, and my sister's interest, and we tried to talk to my parents about it. But they were very adamant that we don't talk about that with other people. I think that well, I know that there for the time being from a small town, you're worried that people are going to start thinking, you're crazy. And you know, no understanding what was going on. And at the time back, then it's it really wasn't talked about as much. Openly I guess paranormal experiences. So. Keep it to ourselves for quite a while. I remember how I got into investigating and actually interviewing people. When I was in my teens, I would have friends over and they would actually have experiences with their own in the house just visiting and remember one time I was upstairs in a friend of mine, and I were studying for a test and all of a sudden, she threw her book down, and she stared at me, and I stopped what I was doing. And I looked at what's what's the matter? And she said what's going on? And I was like, I'm I'm not sure what you're talking about. And she says in the in the thirty minutes we've been here something has come up and down the stairs three times. But there's nobody on your stairs. That's gonna God. And you know at that time after it's happened for so long. It kind of becomes background noise. And I hadn't even really registered. But I finally said, well, you know, my house is haunted. And she found that interesting and fascinating and before long when I was out with brain or party. And evidently, one of my friends would say, hey, John's house is holiday you gotta have him tell stories about his house. And so I started sharing the stories. And before long people started coming to me and saying, hey, you know, I heard you had experiences. I wanna share my experience with you. And at that point. I started writing them down and talking to people and collecting these experiences, and as I grew up and got older, it kind of grew into even being able to help some people that we come to me and saying, you know. Worried about this and more to walk that and just kind of going into and trying to help people out who were having experiences. And that's and that's what it's all about. But and we're going to get into a lot more that we ought to take a hard break, John, but we're talking with John Olsen paranormal investigator about paranormal investigating his experiences stories and much more. You're listening to Jason and JV beyond reality radio. We'll be back after this..

Lake City actually a great place. To, grow up if. You love the outdoors was only about, fifteen twenty minutes, from skiing or fishing hiking, or anything like that but Hong that I grew up in was actually built in eighteen eighty two coal that's a red flag right. There Yeah and it was, one of the older home oldest homes in the small town that I grew up in but like I said I was I was born and raised there and it wasn't until I was about seven or eight years, old that I started recognizing that there were saying in. My, home that, really weren't happening in my friends homes and and that's when. I started bringing it up to I my sister I have a sister that's about four years older, than me we would talk about some of our experiences and then we would attempt to speak to my. Parents but they were, really of the mindset that we shouldn't talk about it to anybody outside of. The family and and my dad He really didn't want to talk about at all But some of the strange experiences that we. Had, one of the first ones that I remember yeah Yes in the middle of the home there's a steep staircase that goes from the, main floor up to the second floor where there is a couple of bedrooms. And a sitting area and at any time. During the day didn't even have to be at, night it could be any time during the day you would be upstairs where my, room was downstairs and you could hear somebody that would run up the stairs or down, the stairs or you could hear heavy footsteps from boots going up the stairs or down the stairs and there would be nobody there and, because that was one of the first things that I recognized, and and talk, to my sister. About, we actually kind of coined, the phrase that we called it the stair monster whatever was happening we we attributed to despair monster but we. Had a lot of different things that occurred to us as we? Were growing up in that house what do you think what was so unusual John about that. House You know I I know sure other. Than the fact that it was old and had quite a history Of The land was originally taken by the government and given to the railroad as part of the payment for the railroad was being built through. Utah and then the railroad is eventually sold it off to farmers who would moved to the area some of the original pioneers that had moved to cash valley and other than just being really.
