I love Mackenzie Knight.
Obviously not in the biblical sense because she's happily married, lives in South Dakota and has a gorgeous seven year old daughter(not to mentioned being protected by a Gnostic Hex from crazed fans like me), but in an I-Love-Her-Show sense.
Some of the people she interviews - and she cleverly allows some of them enough rope to hang themselves with - are clearly totally bonkers, but the vast majority, insane or otherwise, are entertaining.
There is a guy called Bret on her archive who convinced me and eleven thousand listeners, that the Men in Black are based on a real-but-secret US government agency and also, that there is a ranch in South Dakota which is sealed off by Federal Government because spaceships travel from their dimension to this one for the purpose of exchanging stealth technology. It was a tremendous hoot and I was hooked.
All the way through, Mackenzie skilfully runs affairs with a mixture of wry amusement, genuine surprise and genial bonhomie. It's compulsive listening, even for conspiracy-skeptics like my good self.
Mackenzie runs one of the most popular paranormal shows in the US. Speaking to me on the Wizphone in her first UK interview, from the dusty, Little Big Horn-haunted burial grounds of the American West, Mackenzie talks about her life, her new book and most of all matters paranormal.
Tell our UK readers about yourself, Mackenzie. Who are you? Where do you live?
First I'd like to thank you Wiz for having me here, I am thrilled to be in the Cauldron, and talking to my new friends in the UK.
I was raised on Long Island New York.I now live in South Dakota Prairie. Yes, like Little House on the Prairie hahahahah. Flat and dry here for 17 years now. I live with my semi-skeptic Hubby and my delightful 7 year old daughter. I have a black cat named Baby (shes the boss), and a little Shizu terrier mixed up little fellow called Puppy.I love tea and chocolate.
I am also the author of the spooktacular ghostly vampire tale- Cypress Hill, and the host of my own paranormal radio show unearthly encounters live!

Thank you so much for the lovely compliment Wiz. My show is Unearthly Encounters Live! My show usually airs every Tuesday night on Blog Talk Radio, all my shows are archived on my show-page, so listen anytime.
It is one of my dreams come true. To be able to interview all kinds of people who are experts on this subject, the Paranormal which I love. I feel blessed to have talked to all these amazing people I otherwise would have never met.
I’ve hand-picked most, and they are fantastic guests.
I’ve had paranormal investigators, parapsychologists, Bigfoot researchers and hunters, famous people who talk about the Occult, witches, warlocks, world famous psychics, my favorite horror movie actress, UFO hunters, and authors of ghostly tales, and even a real vampire. I put my heart into this.
I read all their books. I like that the show is live because whatever happens, happens. I want people who are interested in this subject to know I am out there,and to listen in and learn and enjoy what these people have to offer.
My Book is called Cypress Hill
I believe you have to love, and believe in what you do, and know the subject matter that your Guest will be talking about.
Reading their books and knowing about your guests is number one to me. I take the time to do these things and it makes for a quality show.
Well this year 2012- I had a lot of fun, I was invited to the Vampyre Ball by Father Sebastian, I was invited to the filming of London Knight's Amityville House Of Lies - I only wish I could have gone to both. I talked to Debra and Tony Pickman about the most notorious haunted house in America, The Sallie House. I fought Zombies with DA Roberts, I learned about Gypsy Magick from Lauren Dole, I went into Manchester House with Donald Allen Kirch and survived. I entered the world of Parasylum with Robbie Thomas, and into the unknown world of the human psychic mind with Darren Storer. I was taken into the world of Witchcraft with Judika Illes, and spun into the psychic world with my co-host Psychic Intuitive Beth Shelby, and learned the Tarot with my co-host Intuitive Tarot Card Reader Amanda Donnelly.
Also, Sherrie,Tina, and AJ taught me to watch out for Creepy Dolls that may be lurking about when you are not looking. I was on the Queen Mary with Psychic Medium Mike Loop,learning of Past Lives with Linda Dix, Dorothy Morrison taught me to be Utterly Wicked. Diana Paxson taught me what its like to be an Oracle, Laura Ellison took me into a very Haunted House, Annick Nouatin shared with me her life and inner strength. Learned that Angels and ET's can really get along with Constance Victoria Briggs. Laura Stamps taught us the sexy side of Paranormal. Brandon Kreitzer admitted he was a skeptic but now believes in the Paranormal. I saw the Stars with Rena Shesso, Learned Candle Magick with Jacki Smith Akron Paranormal and Renegade Paranormal took us on Ghostly Investigations. Jonathan Maxwell taught us about Piltdown Man, and Solana Fox helped me with my Ihakras, I needed that.
Got to play Don't Fear The Reaper on Halloween where 11,000 people joined us that night, Awesome! It blew me away!
I love all my Guests, but I must say I had a blast with UFO Hunter Bret Lueder, I know you liked him too Wiz, Hey Wiz what was it you liked that he sad?
Yes, I do- Sometimes I feel like the Queen of Paranormal, hahahaha.
|Vampirella - a gratuitous opportunity|
to add another Queen of the Paranormal to the mix!
Here is a true story from my childhood. It started at age 4 and never stopped. I Have enough experiences for a book, hahaha. Lots of weird things-
That's an amazing story, Mackenzie. It must have seemed real!
Oh, it did, Wiz.
Actually I do believe you are right and it was filmed on the South Dakota Prairie, or maybe the Badlands.
Is NASA anywhere near South Dakota, Mackenzie?
That's in Florida! hahahhaha.
Yes, with my Paranormal experiences all through my life I do, at least now I can talk about them, and understand some of the things I have seen and heard.
"Here is what happened to me when I was just 4-When I was 4 I had a friend named Susan, who would wait for me daily on the antique phone bench. She would come in my room and play tea party with me and my dolls. We would go play in the garden, and have pretend picnics. One day I asked my grandfather why he never said hello to Susan and showed him where she waited for me every day. I told him that she wore a white dress and black patent leather shoes and that her hair was in pig tails and bows. Grandpa then showed me a picture, and said that Susan was my sister who died 6 years before I was born, when she was just 6."
