Our  Past Guests

We appreciate all the guests who have taken the time to share their experiences, expertise, as well as knowledge with us all. Many of these past and future guests wish to remain anonymous, or to simply be known by their names, so they are not included in the list of guests on this page out of respect for their desires. So the guests listed on this page are ones that are ok with their faces and public details being known to you all. But all our guests are important to me, I am most grateful to them all.

Bonnie Rampy

UFO’s In The Night Skies

Bonnie is from Texas, in the USA. She has been quite open about her experiences with UFOs, starting a few years after suffering a series of strokes.

Her story is quite inspirational, by itself, as she had to completely learn how to talk again, as her strokes wiped out her speech centre in her brain. It was after her series of strokes that she started seeing UFO’s, and photographing them in the night. She started a Facebook group to share her images, experiences, and feelings with members of her group.

Our conversation remains consistently my second most popular listened to episode.

Tony Healy

In Search Of The Yowie

Tony  Healy is from New South Wales in Australia. Tony has investigated a wide range of unexplained phenomena in every state and territory of Australia and in many other countries.

Since the early 1980s he has collaborated with fellow researcher Paul Cropper on many projects, notably in co-authoring Out of the Shadows: Mystery Animals of Australia (1994), The Yowie: In search of Australian’s Bigfoot  (2006) and Australian Poltergeist (2015).

Until the 1990s Tony was concerned mainly with the world’s many super-elusive, apparently uncatchable cryptids – yetis, sasquatch’s, yowie’s, lake and river monsters, out-of-place “black panthers”, thylacine’s, etc.  Gradually, however, his focus widened to encompass all manner of even weirder and more wonderful phenomena, such as UFOs, Min Min lights, ghosts, “little people” and Blessed Virgin Mary apparitions.

In 1998, after a series of fortuitous coincidences, he and Paul found themselves “embedded” in the amazing Humpty Doo, NT, poltergeist episode. That mind-boggling experience was the genesis of their third book, Australian Poltergeist.  During all of his travels through the wide, wide world of weirdness, however, the mysterious yowie has held a special place in Tony’s heart.

So, with Paul, he is focusing once more on the shambling Aussie ape-man: they are currently working on The Yowie File, which contains scores of recently discovered eye-witness reports dating from the early colonial era.  After that one’s published, Tony hopes to live long enough to finish his long-neglected book of memoirs (working title: Monster Safari) an account of his forty-odd (very odd) years in this arena.
