Welcome back to Behind Greatness. We chat with Loyd from his office in the Bay Area. Loyd is many things: a paranormal investigator, a ghost hunter, parapsychologist, educator, mentalist and chocolatier. We are treated immediately with a ghost story from his early work in the 1980s. He was catapulted into the public eye during the release of The Ghost Busters in 1984, being sought after as a real “ghost hunter”.
We discuss a ton of fascinating themes, including: pop culture and beliefs, leaving feelings behind in a room, confronting a sith lord, poltergeists, and the body-station vs the spirit-drone. We learn about Loyd’s early bilocating experiences, his thoughts on humans being an interface device and how science fiction has been more courageous at exploring the possibilities – and the importance of the Rhine Research Center and the public’s – and universities’ – growing interest again in parapsychological study.
We recommend a pairing with episode 113 – with Psychiatrist and Parapsychologist, Dr. Diane Hennacy.
