Burbank is a unique city. On the surface it is such a normal place, to raise a family, grab a Cubano and cafe con leech from Portos and shop.  but as soon as you start digging a little deeper within the historic parts of Burbank, you’ll discover a pretty unique underbelly of the macabre and haunted history.

Oman is convinced that the murder victims still haunt his residence to this day. And he is not the only one. Paranormal experts and psychics from the world over have visited Oman’s residence and have dubbed it “The Mount Everest of haunted houses” and “The D-land for the Dead” for the amount of paranormal activity that occurs there.

Ep. 42 The Nxivm Cult | Hollywood Sex Cults



Hollywood has not only seen its fair share of cults but this crazy city has definitely seen and hosted a few scandalous and horrific sex cults since the late 60s.

A surprising number of sex cults have been founded in the U.S., thanks to our 1st Amendment, and the late 1960’s may have been the most perfect time for their gurus. This may have had something to with the “free love” and “peace” ethos of the time.

Almost all leaders are male, none are classically attractive, but all exercise a stronghold over their followers.  Take for example The Source, The Purple People and Children of God.  Now, it seems like Nxivm has made its way into being one of the most scandalous sex cults of the 21st century with shocking statements and claims of sex trafficking, sex slaves, branding, racketeering, and brainwashing.   Not to mention, the amount of Hollywood celebrities, directors and heiresses that were involved and apart of this scandalous cult.

Tune in as we discuss the history of sex cults in California and the sex cult that shook Hollywood, Nxivm.

But unfortunately, his life came to an untimely end when Valens along with famous rockers Buddy Holly and The Big Bopper Richardson was tragically killed in a horrific plane crash on Feb. 3, 1959.

EP. 40 Season 4 | The Life & Afterlife of Liberace



Before Cher, Lady Gaga, J Lo there was the biggest queen of them all!  LIBERACE!  Liberace was known for his extravagant lifestyle, glitzy costumes, candelabra, and extraordinary showmanship all made him famous as his piano playing.

He died of cytomegalovirus pneumonia as a result of AIDS on February 4, 1987.  The showman had been diagnosed with Aids in August 1985 by a private physician in Las Vegas – a fact which was hidden from the public. He didn’t seek any medical treatment for his condition and his illness was a secret until the day he died.  He was 67 when he passed away at home in Palm Springs, California.  But it seems like Mr. Showmanship has been making his presence known all around Vegas.

On Ep. 40, Season 4, we talk about the life and afterlife of Liberace.  We also talk about his paranormal association.  Is it possible that he is still creating music from the other side through those who purchase his pianos?  Is it his spirit that people see at the former Tivolis Restaurant and his museum?  Tune in to find out!


EP. 39 The True Crime and Paranormal Aftermath of Rebecca Schaffer



It’s one of the most disturbing stories in  Hollywood history: The murder of Rebecca Schaeffer, a young and beautiful actress cut down in her prime by an obsessed fan, Robert John Bardo.

On July 18, 1989, the actress was shot to death in the doorway of her West Hollywood apartment by Robert John Bardo—an obsessed fan who had been stalking her for three years.   This was one of the biggest stories that shook Hollywood in the late 80s.

Join us as we take a deeper dive into the lower depths of Stalker cases and definitions.  What drives an obsessed fan to do the unthinkable?  The paranormal aftermath, there are no hauntings on the site of Rebeccas murder but there is a correlation with the show My Sister Sam that Rebecca starred in and DTLA’s haunted Pico House.
