Episode 5: The Lady In White
In 2019, Jeanine decided to write a ghost tour outside of downtown Austin, focusing on her own neighborhood in southwest Austin.  In the midst of her research, she discovered that in 1922, twin tornadoes devastated downtown Austin and surrounding neighborhoods.  As the tornadoes moved to rural farmland in southwest Austin, one rural residence took a direct hit.  Six of the twelve casualties from those deadly tornadoes originated from this SW Austin residence.  Jeanine kept thinking about the family who lost so much that tragic day and how sometime a sudden death can at times keep a spirit around.  One morning she went onto Next Door, and saw a post asking if anyone knew of a ghost around Convict Hill Road.  The response to said question lead to an intriguing paranormal investigation.  Listen closely, as you just might hear the ghost!

MG part 1: Interview with an Empath
Part one of this four part series entitled Interview with an Empath, started out as a simple interview with an empath or an intuitive named Gail Gillum.  It’s an insightful interview asking what it’s like to be an intuitive, when she knew she had these abilities, and how people reacted once she came forward with her abilities.  Gail also tells several ghost stories, one of which involved a trip to a cemetery.  After that interview, some very strange things happened to Gail and our host, Jeanine Plumer.  To find out what happened, check out the other three episodes of this series.

MG Part 2: A Paranormal Investigation
Part two of this four part series entitled A Paranormal Investigation, reveals the very strange things that happened after the initial interview.  As the crew gathered to record these stories, a thunderstorm rolled in that seemed to wake the other side up!  It was almost as if someone or several entities from the other side wanted to join in on the conversation!  Listen carefully as you may hear some voices from the other side!

MG Part 3: Audio Evidence from the Beyond
Once the thunderstorm cleared the area and the podcast recording for that episode was finished, Audio Engineer Dennis Foley and RenegadeRadio.net’s Jemini reviewed their recordings.  What we discovered was that we were certainly not alone during that recording!  Part three of this series, Audio Evidence from the Beyond is a collection of the class A EVPs (electronic voice phenomenon) that were discovered during audio review.

MG Part 4: The Original American Sniper
As Jeanine was researching for this podcast, she learned of the original American sniper, Carlos Hathcock.  As she was watching a full interview with Mr. Hathcock on YouTube, a thunderstorm rolled in.  Given what happened the last time a thunderstorm rolled in and we were talking about other strange events and American heroes, she decided to record the ambient noise in the room while the interview was playing.  She didn’t just record noises of this world but the other side as well!  The fourth and final part of the Military Ghosts series, The Original American Sniper, reveals what Jeanine captured on her recorder during that thunderstorm.
