A Portrait for Troian – February 7, 1971


Sam leaps into Dr. Timothy Mintz, a paranormal investigator helping a woman named Troian Claridge determine if her dead husband, Julian, is trying to make contact with her. Spookiness is definitely afoot, and Sam must determine if there’s a ghost, or a flesh-and-blood person out to harm Troian.

Sam Fain hates this episode, Dennis loves it, and frequent guest host, Christopher J. Steward is pulled in between. We also manage to cover The Twilight Zone, Of Mice and Men, and The Drew Carey Show.

Sam makes special mention of a Twilight Zone podcast, and you can find more info here: http://thetwilightzonepodcast.com/

So Help Me God – July 29, 1957




Sam leaps into Leonard Dancey, a lawyer in 1957 Louisiana. Talk about a poorly-timed entrance: He arrives just as the leapee is being asked for Guilty or Not Guilty plea for his client, a black woman named Delilah Berry. Delilah (Lila) is on trial for the murder of Houston Palmer Carter. When Sam looks at her and makes a split-second decision to plead Not Guilty, he changes history, and sets out to prove her innocence.


Guest Christopher J. Steward returns to help Sam Fain and Dennis discuss the episode.
