Hypnosis is a human condition involving focused attention, reduced peripheral awareness, and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion according to Wikipedia at least. But what do they know? Not more than your ole' Grognostics crew, am I right? Well, not really but luckily, on today's show we sit down with real-life Hypnotist Joshua Strongin to see what this intrigue we may have seen at parties or gatherings is all about. Is it real? An act? Is there more going on inside the human brain we simply don't know how to harness and this is a glimpse into a world beyond? Guess you'll have to listen to find out. Or not. Suit yourself. Ok please listen. Pretty please?
Joshua Strongin is a hypnotist and illusionist that also goes by the name Jace who specializes in gatherings as well as using hypnosis for healing.

Thanks for hopping back onto the plane with us to examine what really happened to missing airliner MH370.
Sure, maybe you, along with your fancy, snifter glass can swirl around a blackberry cream sour, dry-hopped, wet-hopped, hip-hopped ale, take a deep inhale, have a swig and tell your chums the name of the brewery, the type of barley, and how many brewers lost part of their beard into the wort during the production. But only Grognostics can tell you which adjunct lagers, or American Lagers are which in a blind taste test. Or well, I mean, they can tell you some. I think. Not too sure actually. Join us for the un-craft of beer shows as we step away from the craft beer scene and live a little as our former beer-drinking selves in an American beer way.
A Commercial flight operated by Malaysia Airlines took off in the early morning of March 8th, 2014 heading to Beijing China. After what appeared to be normal protocol up until about an hour into the flight, air traffic control replied what would be the final words ever heard from the plane – “goodnight,” as it left one air jurisdiction. After that, a series of mostly unknown events would lead to the aircraft being the only one with the exception of a plane flown by one Amelia Erhardt to disappear permanently.
On today's show we sit down with our usual cast of characters to take you play-by-play into the events that led up to the plane's disappearance. Next week, we'll examine what may have actually happened.
5G frequency has clandestinely been showing up as your cell phone's selected choice service whether you've noticed or not. It's entered our airwaves with much controversy. What does it mean though exactly? Is it safe? Is it the cause of Coronavirus planted by Bill Gates or better yet, aliens? What about an alien version of Bill Gates? We dive into the facts, the fiction, and everything in-between as the Grognostic lads wet their whistle if you will getting back into the fray of this podcasting world.
And, we're back. Join us next week for the first show of our return tour. In the meantime, here is what to expect.
So what exactly has our favorite Grognostics character been doing during this shelter-in-place? Is he taking this opportunity to explore the sights, void of any commoners getting in the way of his explorations? Is he discovering new lands? Species? Breakfast options in the Transylvania Alps? We're warming up to get back to it here at the Grognostics studios (Jason's shoe closet) so get ready for more consistent Thursday posts going forward.
We have an announcement. Listen while it's hot. Hope you're staying safe and healthy and enjoying some fine craft brews during your lockdown. Don't forget to catch up on all of our lovely episodes as you lock yourself in a closet to hide from your loved ones...

History has given us a handful of monumental love stories. Mark Antony had Cleopatra. Paris had Troy. Sonny had Cher. And Peter? Well, Peter had a love story that has never been told. Until now...
Sound. For those hearing fortunate, sounds tell a story in our life. Sometimes they are irritating, annoying, loud, obnoxious, but other times. They are. Serene. Tranquil. Inspiring. Motivating. Persuasive. Angelic. They can make you lose yourself. What is it about a song, or a tune, or a beat, or just sounds in general that resonate with us? Often makes us feel better? But can sound do more than that? Can sound heal us? On today’s show we discuss and sit down with Liam, a real-life sound bath therapist to examine this concept in detail.
You can learn all about Liam and if the next time you’re in Ireland tell him Grognostics sent ya and he’ll get you in for a free sound bath.

On today's show we go back and touch on every prior show in thirty-second intervals to see if just maybe, we can conclude something on some of them. Have a short attention span and don't want to listen to our entire library of shows to learn something? This CliffsNotes version is for you.

Happy New Year all. Thank you for your Grognostic patronage in 2019. We hope you've laughed with us or at us, or at very least, learned something about the world, yourself or a tasty craft beer you didn't know before. On today's show, we share with you some moments of shows to come. We look forward to regaling you in the new year and maybe, just maybe, we'll conclude something in this new decade. Eh, we probably won't.

Sure Santa, the Easter Bunny, and Ghosts rule the holidays but what about the lesser glamorized Pilgrim who makes Thanksgiving what it is today? Wait, you don't know Bartholomew the Thanksgiving Pilgrim? You do now.
Throughout our nation's history, brave and courageous individuals have battled tyranny, fearsome opponents and the lack of hope to provide us with liberties and freedoms we have today. For example this Veteran's Day 2019 we can use creative freedom to create a podcast instead of fighting in the trenches of a foreign land. For that we are thankful. Take today to thank those who deserve it most. Happy Veteran's Day to our fearless soldiers and fighters.
Throughout humanity, dating back to even our most civilized ancient civilizations, humans have had a fascination, a fear, a panic about witches. And why is that exactly? Why do we continue to fear their powers or more importantly why do we even think they exist? Well, we're glad you asked because Grognostics jumps with both feet into the boiling cauldron to find answers with a new guest while one of the regular guests takes the day off, involuntarily. Halloween beers from Elysian and New Belgium.
As part of our Halloween week of spooky hilarity, we present the one, the only, the easily spooked, Sir Matthew. He reminds us that the scariest things are sometimes right under our noses as well as bringing to light what candy we all drool over each Halloween.
Have a listen and hear for yourself what's bubbling in the Grognostics cauldron this Halloween.
So the time has come for us to finally determine the question we've all been waiting for. Who exactly is buried in Grant's tomb? That and what is the most savage torture device in humanity's history? Well, listen and you shall find out.
