It’s Episode 500 this week!

If you would have told me in 2011 that I would still be making podcasts in 2021 I would have said that I highly doubt it. However, here we are and this Thursday we will present for the 500th time a brand new show. There are so many people I want to thank for making this all happen. My brother for being my most faithful listener, critic and supporter. Emma Lynn Dowd for deciding the show was good enough to be on the radio not once, but twice a week. Sylvia Shults for being the best darn storyteller on the planet and for being a good friend.  There are other people that I have met over the years and have helped the show, but there are too many to list here.

What can we expect in the next 100 shows? I know that I plan to get back to interviewing interesting people and bring new ideas. I have really shut down the interviews simply because my personal life has had issues. I really love talking to people and hearing their stories and that simply has to come back to the show. Also, I want to have more original fiction stories. Some ideas have been rolling around in my head for years and just need to be put down on paper.

So, there you have it. Thank you to all of you that listen to the show, send in your stories and share your feedback. This means the world to me and there would be no show if it weren’t for all of you. You are the reason I do this and will continue to do so!

Best Regards,

-Ron

RAS #499 – Hall Of Mirrors

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we are going to set the groundwork for our 500th episode. But don’t fret or worry, we do have stories. We have two from you guys – The first is a freaky ghost story that just makes no sense, and then we have a response tale to a skinwalker tale from episode #495. Also, We have TWO mind-bending stories from the pages of the 1950s pulp magazines that were both written by the talented Fredrick Brown. And as an added bonus Sylvia Shults takes us on her latest ghost hunting trip.

Featured Story – Hall Of Mirrors

Our featured story is another mind-bending one set in 1954 and then moves to 2004. It has a unique time perspective that I found completely fascinating and I think you will too. It is titled Hall of Mirrors and was written by Frederick Brown. It first appeared on the pages of Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine in December of 1953.

Other Stories Include – Dinner Party Murder, Project Hail Mary, Sylvia’s Haunted Shock, The White Ghost, Hmm, I heard that too, Experiment, and Hall of Mirrors.

Featured Story – When Worlds Met

These Are Your Stories #23 – UFO Coincidence

Our  story comes from Marcella Cunningham. This is one of the strangest we have had and certainly stands out as original. I received this on the website and it appeared in episode #380 – Night Of Fright.

I have a best friend named Becky in middle school who I lost contact with when she transferred in the eighth grade. Two years later, I had a dream that I visited her new school and we sat at the back of her math class. In the dream her teacher was a tall, brunette with curly hair, and wearing glasses. 

The next day I got a message on Facebook from her, which was completely out of the blue because we hadn’t spoken in months. She writes to me how she is doing and that she is still having trouble with math. I have always been good at it so I helped her with math and she helped me with english. I thought it was odd! I wrote her back and told her about my dream. With-in seconds I get a reply. She freaks out and tells me that she sits at the back of her math class, and her teacher fits the description I gave her from my dream perfectly.

The next night I was out walking my dog around the neighborhood with a friend. We would occasionally look up to the sky in awe of the stars. I saw a fast moving light like a meteor, but slower, although much faster than an airplane. Then, it made an impossible ninety degree turn. First to the right, then to the left, and it disappeared. My friend and I both stopped, looked at each other and said at the same time “Did you see that?”

A woman’s voice from behind us spoke out, “I sure did, never seen anything like that before?”

We both turned and standing there was a young woman who was tall, brunette with curly hair, and wearing glasses. She introduced herself as Mary. We talked for quite a while about what we had seen. Through our discussion she mentioned that she was a teacher. I stopped mid-sentence and mentioned my old friend’s name. She was in fact my Becky’s math teacher.

Was all of this coincidence? Why the UFO and why strange connections? I renewed my friendship with Becky and we are better friends than ever. I am now a junior in highschool, and yes I still help her with Math and she still proofreads my english assignments.

Marcella Cunningham 

Well that is an amazing story Marcella. That does seem like a lot of coincidence to me, but who really knows how the universe works.  Thank you for your story!

-Ron
