The world is in chaos, it seems. Between the horrendous hurricanes, powerful earthquakes, deadly wildfires, senseless mass killing sprees, terrorism attacks and all the rest, things on this planet aren't looking very good and I think all of us are either shaking our heads or living in fear. Bonnie Vent is a medium and channeler who channels The Connection, a group of high level spiritual guides who want to reach out to those who are on a spiritual path and provide inspiration and guidance. I asked Bonnie to do the live channeling session so that perhaps get some answers and a better understanding of what's going on in our world and if there is anything we can do on our end to help set things right. You will hear this show on an audio only file here, but Bonnie also recorded a video file during the channeling session, so if you'd like to watch AND listen, please pop over to my website's Stirring the Cauldron page at www.marlabrooks.comBrandon Massullo - The Ghost Studies

September 22, 2017 10:13 AM PDT
Damh the Bard has been on a long but heartfelt journey this past year. A monumental project that has been waiting patiently for the right time to bring itself into being has begun. The Mabinogion are the earliest prose stories of the literature of Britain. The stories were compiled in Middle Welsh in the 12th–13th centuries from earlier oral traditions. The Mabinogion is a single work divided into in four parts, or Branches and each Branch contains several tale episodes in a sequence. Damh will be recording one album for each of the four branches and the first album, Y Mabinogi The First Branch, is being released on September 26th. The double album is done in both narrative and song, and if you want to hear more about the album and discover the process of how a modern day bard can successfully bring 12th century tales into the 21st century and remain faithful to the stories themselves and would like to hear one of the new songs, please tune in.Author Jeff Mudgett-American Ripper
September 15, 2017 10:00 AM PDT
Jeff Mudgett is the great, great grandson of Herman Webster Mudgett, Americas first serial killer who also went by the alias of Dr. H.H. Holmes. For most of his adult life, Jeff been on a quest to find out whether or not his ancestor was not only responsible for killing as many as 200 people in the late 19th century here in this country, but also the possibly that he was also the most notorious killer in London back then as well, Jack the Ripper. Jeff's book about his ancestor, Bloodlines, was the topic when he was first on my show back in 2012 and much has transpired in his search for the truth since then. In recent weeks, The History Channel's show, American Ripper, has afforded him many more avenues to research and explore and gives the viewers terrific insight into the mind of this notorious killer, his crimes and the possibility that he may also be the infamous London murderer.Tonight's Mystery Guest Is...........
September 08, 2017 12:11 PM PDT
My scheduled guest for this week had to unfortunately bow out at the last minute, so I went on a mildly frantic search to be able to find a replacement in order to be able to do a live show rather than an encore. As luck would have it, Bruce Tango popped up and offered to fill in and I happily took him up on it. So if you don't mind the random ramblings of a witch and a ghost hunter, I think you'll enjoy this spur-off-the-moment offering.
Host Marla Brooks stirs the cauldron every Thursday night at 9:00 PM ET on Para X with interesting guests from both the Pagan and Paranormal realms.
