My guests this episode are Karen Rontowski (stand up comic and host of and Jen Kirkman (writer, stand up comic and regular on the Chelsea Handler show). Get this – they both love ghosts and UFO’s and Tarot cards and Karen does a real Tarot card reading. This is a great episode.


Note: For those of you who believed Mazes & Monsters, Tarot card reading is also non-threatening. Remember, everything on TDF is about choice and support. Safe space people.


I nominated my collaboration with Greg Franklin for an online comedy award... feel free to nominate it as well (can't hurt,right?): this cartoon if you wish at


Ghost Radar App – when I looked for this app I found this in a comment section (about something else), “I downloaded the Facebook and Visual Voicemail apps to my Droid and then uninstalled them. However, the icons are still on my phone” duh duh dum! So beware! (I’m kidding)

Ghost Hunters Survival Guide – book that Karen refers to by two different titles but this was the correct one… she says it’s great!

Pittsfield and Needham, MA


Air Force UFO Wired Article – I can’t find a US Congress reference - there was “a congress” but… perhaps @jenkirkman on twitter can find it J

Vegas UFO – I can’t find a reference to the Art Bell story. Grr.

Good Omens – Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett (this is a great read. Quick, funny, smart… great book).

Rider-Waite Tarot Deck – Wiki article… take with grain o’ salt.
