HOST:   Richard Syrett
GUESTS: Tim Swartz, Michael Bodine

Nikola Tesla is the genius credited for creating much of modern electrical 
technology. In the first half, investigator and author Tim Swartz, joined 
Richard Syrett to discuss his research into Tesla's lost papersûsome of which 
were confiscated by the US. government after his death in 1942. Swartz detailed 
the history of TeslaÆs last years and revealed that not only was he not as 
penniless as people think, he was apparently working for the U.S. Government, 
and the FBI maintained a presence in the New Yorker Hotel, which was TeslaÆs 
final residence. Swartz said that while Tesla "was fiercely proud that he was a 
citizen of the United States," he still maintained ties with his homeland of 
Yugoslavia, and planned to assist them with a network of death beam devices to 
defend against the Germans during WWII.

Swartz delved into the story of Donald TrumpÆs paternal uncle, John Trump, who 
was a brilliant electrical engineer at MIT and who was asked to look through 
TeslaÆs papers after the great inventorÆs death. He believes that there is 
compelling evidence that Trump, while informing the U.S. Government that there 
was nothing useful in the thousands of pages he supposedly looked at in just two 
days, he may have used some of the ideas to improve his own work. Swartz also 
described TeslaÆs research with electromagnetic propulsion and possible anti-
gravity effects, and how this might have contributed to aircraft that people 
mistook for UFOs after WWII. Tesla also claimed that he heard signals from an 
alien race on his receiver, which was one of the only ones in the world at the 
time. In summary, Swartz said that Nikola TeslaÆs ultimate goal was how to "use 
science to improve our way of life."


Michael Bodine was young when he discovered his psychic abilities. In the second 
half, he shared hair-raising and hilarious moments in his haunted life, 
including true stories of a dangerous ghost friend with a hidden agenda, ghost 
hunting misadventures, and his successful battle against chemical dependency as 
he learned to accept his unusual gift. Bodine says his childhood was filled with 
psychic and paranormal phenomena, and his mother and siblings eventually began 
to study and accept what was happening to them, with such occurrences as objects 
flying across rooms and being touched by unseen hands. He says his mother felt 
empowered by their experiences. She joined secretive psychic groups and actually 
took Bodine to visit a community of vampires when he was 10 years old. He 
remembered that they "had transparent skin" and "when they looked at you it was 
like they looked right through you."

When he was "10 or 11," Bodine claims an entity named "Jerry" began to both 
torment him but also protect him from bullies. He says the stress drove him to 
start abusing drugs at that age. Jerry apparently didnÆt approve when Bodine 
went into rehab at age 14, and it took a massive effort to rid himself of the 
attachment. When he was a young teenager, his mother also took him to a haunted 
house in order to clear out spirits, which was a terrifying experience and 
actually made him more afraid of ghosts. He said most hauntings can be cleared 
by discovering "why the spirit is there." During call-ins, Ruth from New York 
State asked about her grandson, who she said appeared to have psychic abilities 
and asked Bodine if she should encourage him. Not surprisingly, he replied that 
she should "make things as normal as you can." If the abilities are going to 
develop, Bodine sees a better outcome if things are allowed to develop
