Transmissions :: Mitch Horowitz

Our guest this week on the show is Mitch Horowitz. Perhaps you’ve heard the occult scholar and author on Coast to Coast AM or The Duncan Trussell Family Hour or perhaps you’ve heard him right here on Transmissions. With the occasion of his new book, Daydream Believer: Unlocking the Ultimate Power of your Mind, out this week, as well as the forthcoming essay collection, Uncertain Places: Essays on Occult and Outsider Experiences out on October 18, we invited Mitch back to the show for another fascinating and wind ranging conversation about mind causation, ESP, the paranormal, and music.

Daydream Believer—yes, it’s named for the Monkees song—focuses not only on the subject of research into psi, or extrasensory perception, but also examines some of the pitfalls that Aquarian or New Age thinkers sometimes stumble into. Meanwhile, in Uncertain Places, Horowitz offers thoughtful and entertaining essays about UFOs, bigfoot, gnosticism, the historical roots of the Illuminati conspiracy theory, and many other fascinating topics, as well as an uncut version of his David Lynch interview. Horowitz joins host Jason P. Woodbury to discuss all that and more.
