Paradelphia Radio

"Although we've come to the end of the road.........."


And so we have. This, our 89th episode is also our last on Toxic Radio and we celebrate not only the end of another awesome year, not only the holiday season but also Toxic Radio itself. For 2 years we've grown along with Toxic Radio into a well established paranormal radio show and we couldn't be more grateful that Toxic Mike and his network gave us the platform from which to launch ourselves. But this show isn't only about goodbyes, it's also our annual Christmas themed show and that mean lots of Christmas paranormal news. From Krampus to the Belschnikle we go around the world and visit a host of creepy Yuletide creatures before coming back in for one last group hug with Toxic Mike himself.

Last but certainly not least we want to thank all of you....the listeners. Without all of your ears pointed in our direction we'd just be talking to ourselves and what fun would that be? So THANK YOU from the Paradelphia Crew and we wish you all the Happiest of Holidays and nothing but the best in 2016!!

In the early 1800's monsters existed in America. All over the world, really. Conjoined twins, gigantic tumors, exotic diseases causing deformities so severe that those afflicted were rendered social pariahs. Enter into this world of misfits a doctor who was, by way of his unusual empathy, patience and genius, himself an anomaly. This week Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz stops by to talk about the life and times of Dr.Tomas Dent Mutter. Namesake of Philadelphia's own Mutter Museum, Dr. Mutter pioneered such innovations as surgical anesthetic, full patient disclosure and his signature operation called the Mutter Flap. This dynamo of a man singlehandedly revolutionized the field of surgery from the halls of Jefferson Medical College right in the heart of Center City Philadelphia and his story is simply amazing. Paranews and more!!
