In Mission 101 we explore the paranormal Vatican with author and lecturer Gary Jansen, author of the new book: Holy Ghosts: Or How a (Not So) Good Catholic Boy Became a Believer in Things That Go Bump in the Night. In every sense of the word, the Vatican is a government — a government with serious influence over almost 1.2 billion people. And governments have secrets. Recently, the Vatican announced guidelines on how to deal with supernatural phenomena. Back in 2009, the Pope’s chief astronomer conceded that life may exist on other worlds. In the 1970s, a Catholic priest was tinkering with time travel. The Church is obviously trying to prepare its flock for some greater truth. In this mission we explore all of that and more. Dr. Dreck stops by to help us spread the Odd word, and don’t miss zombies and aliens in the news!
