Doug & Scott L. "Ghostly Talk
Ghostly Talk is the world’s premier weekly independent talk show
about the paranormal. The focus is the scientific and logical
study of paranormal activities. Ghostly Talk tries to use common
sense with uncommon topics.
Ghostly Talk is currently broadcast live on Sunday
nights from 6:00pm to 9:00pm EST. A large number of affiliates
support the show through live broadcasting and re-broadcasting
throughout the week over the Internet, and AM and FM broadcasts.

and also in podcast format at:
Ghostly Talk, originally formed by co-hosts Doug
and Scott L. on a snowy night outside of a dive bar in New Haven,
MI, first aired on February 12th, 2002 to a total listening
audience of one person (who consequently Doug and Scott L. knew).
They tried an initial 13 shows entitled "Project
1" and were very pleased with the response from the paranormal
community and the fun they were having producing the show. Project
2 was born from the first 13 shows that the two nervous &
inexperienced amateur internet broadcasters limped through. Doug
and Scott L. realized after those first 13 shows that things
seemed to run smoother when the scripts, notes and outlines were
thrown out and they relaxed and just became themselves.) This made
the show much more informative and entertaining as a result of
Doug and Scott L’s edgy sense of humor.
In the summer of 2002 Doug and Scott L. met the
likes of one Will Whitmer through mutual friends. Will started
hanging out in the Haunted Basement Studio during Ghostly Talk
broadcasts. After while, Will fit right in as Ghostly Talk's board
operator during live broadcasts.
On January 13th of 2003, Ghostly Talk went to a
two hour format from the frustration of not being able to fit the
volumes of material on subjects into each show. This opened the
doors for FREE advertising campaigns that the Ghostly Talk crew
started up to help support other shows around the same subject
matter that started popping up all over the country.
On June 22nd, 2003, Ghostly Talk introduced a
third co-host by the name of Karma to the exponentially growing
listening audience, who welcomed her with open arms. Karma was a
wonderful addition to the show and was enjoyed until December of
2004 when she decided to leave the show to pursue other interests.
2005 was quite possibly the most ground breaking
year for the show since its conception, with the largest names and
organizations in the paranormal community turning their heads
towards Ghostly Talk.
On September 4th, 2005, Doug and Scott L decided
to officially move to a three hour format to accommodate the
expressed demand from the army of listeners for more Ghostly Talk!
Monolithic and legendary paranormal researchers
such as John Zaffis and Loyd Auerbach, along with personalities
such as George Lutz (of Amityville Horror House fame, R.I.P.), Tom
and Lisa Butler (technical consultants for the film White Noise),
and world renown spoon bender Uri Geller have graced the program
with their wisdom and stories. Big names like actor Sid Haig
(House Of A 1000 Corpses and The Devils Rejects), and legendary
Singer/Writer/Actor Henry Rollins have made numerous appearances
on Ghostly Talk, further widening the scope of the show to produce
real, independent media on a consistent basis.
On August 26th, 2005, the crew of Ghostly Talk
also made their first appearance on the worlds most listened to
late night talk show, COAST TO COAST AM WITH GEORGE NOORY where
Doug, Scott L, and Will showcased some of the evidence they have
acquired over the last five years as paranormal investigators
along with talking about some of their experiences as ghost
hunters. They were heard by over twenty-five million listeners of
COAST TO COAST AM that night which has helped Ghostly Talk's
popularity grow exponentially towards the end of 2005.
On May 22nd, 2006 Will Whitmer stepped down as a
member of Ghostly Talk to pursue other interests. Will has his
part in the history of Ghostly Talk and is missed.
The story has come full circle again back to the
original duo of Doug and Scott L., with the help of long time
supporter & friend Bonnie G. stepping in during the broadcast.
Ghostly Talk pushes on with a life of its own, encouraging
discussion and critical thought along with emanating a true
passion for the paranormal, week after week.
To this day, Ghostly Talk continues as the world’s
premier independent resource for the paranormal. Serving tens of
thousands of listeners per week with live feeds and archived
broadcasts along with a consistent four million page hits a month,
Ghostly Talk, on its fifth year of production, has grown into a
thriving independent, paranormal information powerhouse.
