Science can generally disprove most supernatural to an extent. But there is one that is closer to all of us than one might think. 

Written by Grognostics.

Many of you have tried a porter, typically sweet and laden with that feisty maiden called alcohol. You've probably even enjoyed one or two. But have you ever tried a porter? A porter. You know a person employed to carry luggage and other loads, especially in a railroad station, airport, or hotel? Well I have, and let me tell you - it hurts when they don't call you after a first date. It hurts a lot. Awkward... On today's continuing beer sessions segment we teach you about the history and profile of a beer that is mostly looking in from outside the craft beer scene wondering why not me? Why aren't I inside that craft brewery or taproom? I'm sweet. I'm malty. A special guest drops by and we might even try one or two.

We’ve all had that feeling that we should be or should not be doing something whether we have a gut feeling the result will be good or it will end up bad. So what is that? Is THAT intuition? But the question is, how do we know when to follow what our intuition is telling us and when it’s simply a manifestation cooked up by our fleeting, often fearful minds? Or…let’s think larger.  What if intuition is a slight peak into a superpower humans have harnessed in the past and possibly could again? Think Oracles. Prognosticators. Did they have a secret power that was nothing more than enhanced intuition? And when the rubber meets the conclude nothing explore everything road- What is your intuition telling you right now about clicking play on your podcast app and listening to this podcast? What’s that? It’s telling you not to? Oh. We did not know that. This is awkward.

Sunil Godse has made it a mission to show others how to sharpen their intuition and today he’ll show you how to sharpen yours. He might even help us reflect on some of the aforementioned ponderances.

He’s an author, a public speaker, podcast host, a coach and founder of The Intuitionology Project. He’s been featured on podcasts, radio interviews, TV shows and conducted seminars on how to implement intuitive solutions for both individuals and companies. He’s written two critically acclaimed books, Fail Fast. Succeed Faster. and GUT!

Grognostics is a podcast where we encourage you to learn, and expand your mind when it comes to the world, yourself, past, present and future. Most of our shows are based around the premise that by listening it will encourage deep thought, reflection and trigger curiosity for more. But then there are the shows that, well don't. This is one of those shows. This is one that sparks one's funny bone and one's sudden urge to stay away from all legal and illegal drugs of any kind.  You're welcome.  Our favorite correspondent in the field is back for a bonus episode that is neither a show topic nor a craft beer episode. We're not too worried about it. We promise you will enjoy. This is also Sir Matthew's maiden script as this is written and acted by Sir Matthew.

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.

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 all previous shows, we've concluded... well absolutely nothing, but we've sure had a blast doing it. 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.
