The curse of Robert Damon Schneck continues? First, our initial show with him was mysteriously wiped out by overzealous station staff before it was broadcast. Then, the week he was supposed to be on, the engineers forgot to upload the show -- so we got a rerun instead. Surely tonight would have gone on without a hitch, right? Wrong! While the show could be heard streaming (we believe), mysterious troubles with the transmitter kept the show from being heard locally over the air! Coincidence, or the curse of He Who Must Not Be Named (but whom Linda mentioned in the intro)?

Find out for yourself by listening to the podcast -- if you dare!

Robert Damon Schneck, America¹s Historian of the Strange, is the author of The President¹s Vampire, Strange-but-True Tales of the United States of America Anomalist Books 2005, Barnes & Noble 2007) as well as several books for young readers including Detective Notebook: Are You Psychic? He is freelance writer who contributes to Fate the Fortean Times and other magazines. Robert has carried out parapsychology experiments, participated in ghost hunts and visited odd places in search of stories. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, in an apartment full of books and silverfish eating the books. Friends describe him as a loveable, nocturnal, monomaniac.

On Uncanny Radio, enjoy a smattering of Robert's best stories, including one about a poltergeist that converted to Catholicism, Pedro the Mummified Tiny Person, an electric machine intended to be God, a US president's connection to a vampire...and perhaps Bram Stoker, and a Wisconsin tale so creepy it defies description.

The God Machine: "October 1853, on a hilltop in Lynn, Massachusetts, a group assembled to create the New Messiah. They had not come to pray or to praise God: they were actually going to build Him out of metal and wood under the supervision of spirits." - Robert Damon Schneck
