Halloween treat -- Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, perhaps the most acclaimed horror novel ever. Born in Dublin in 1847, Bram Stoker published his masterpiece, Dracula, in 1897. The book was a success, and its popularity has grown for over a century. A classic horror novel, Dracula inspired the creation of adaptations such as the 1931 film Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi. Stoker introduced the vampire character of Count Dracula and tells the story of Dracula's attempt to move from Transylvania to England and the battle between Dracula and a group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Written in the Victorian era, the novel touches on familiar issues: reason and science vs. religion and superstition, the rise of feminism, race, world domination, and breaking sexual taboos. Stoker did not invent the vampire, but he defined its modern form. Dracula has many supernatural abilities. He has superhuman strength equivalent to 20 men. Like all undead, he is immortal, but he can be killed by traditional vampire methods of wooden stakes, iron and/or steel weapons, wild rose, or holy water. The definitive way to kill him is by decapitating him preceded by impalement through the heart. The Count can defy gravity and has superhuman agility; he can climb upside down vertical surfaces in a reptilian manner. He has powerful hypnotic and telepathic abilities and is able to command animals such as bats and rats. Dracula can manipulate the weather, creating mists to mask his presence. He can take the form of bat, wolf, large dog, or fog. He can vanish and reappear somewhere else. He requires nothing but fresh blood, which rejuvenates him. “The blood is the life!” Dracula has not been out of print since it was published in 1897. After the interview, check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live.

For this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow, we focus on the Do-Nothing Congress of the last few years. The Congressional approval ratings have dipped into the "teens," in terms of approval numbers.
Two of the worst offenders of this 113th Congress are Darrell Issa (CA-49) & Walter B. Jones, Jr. (NC-3). Our guests this evening are true representatives of the people who are ready to take the fight for the people to DC.
Our first guest is new to the show, but not to the national spotlight. Dave Peiser is the Democratic candidate running against incumbent Darrell Issa (R), who has held the seat since 2003. Peiser is a true community man. He has founded two businesses (Peiser Solutions & greenliness.com). With one rooted in health care experiences and the other providing green product solutions, Dave Peiser is right in sync with the average California voter. Peiser also serves on several non-profit boards and advocates for those that do not have their own voice. Tune in to hear more about the man who will remove Darrell "Benghazi" Issa from office: http://www.peiserforcongress.com/
Our second guest is quite familiar to the Social Spitball Show listener. Marshall Adame is a fascinating, passionate family man, retired Marine and U.S. diplomat, as well as an active defender of the rights of veterans, workers, women and the environment of North Carolina. Whenever Marshall speaks, you know he is speaking from the heart, as well as the mind. A solid mix of intelligence & passion is exactly what NC's 3rd Congressional district needs. Learn more about Marshall just before 8pm Eastern: http://www.marshall4congress.com/
The people need these representatives. The people need to hear their messages. Spread the word and tune in starting at 7pm EDT
Let's get the conversation going...
Rachael Derby-GCUK Southeast Team & Paranormal (Mike Travis) Author Jan McDonald Join Show presenters Mickey Gocool and Kurt Logsdon LIVE.
Jan McDonald, the author of the Mike Travis Paranormal Investigations.
I live close to the Welsh borders which have their own mystical quality and provide endless resources in the way of legends and folklore surrounding the paranormal. I love all things paranormal and have loved reading the best, Dennis Wheatley, Stephen King (his early work) Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, H.P. Lovecraft and all those authors that excel in the creepy or down-right scary. Jan tells us the story behind "Mike Travis - Paranormal Investigator" Her "BEST SELLING" books are available from Amazon

Manager: Rachael Darby from GCUK SOUTHEAST
I have been in a spiritual Circle for the past six years I am currently expanding my knowledge and being taught Reiki healing. I don't like the title of medium but I am extremely sensitive (so don't upset me as I cry. Lol) I book and look into venues to investigate. we are called GC UK Southeast paranormal events.
Co Manager: Etta from GCUK SOUTHEAST:
We have been friends for 21 years. We have been many investigations and our first proper investigation was actually with Jenny and her team at tutbury castle. We had a fantastic time camping out and ghost hunting. It gave us the bug to want to explore Moor in the paranormal world. We joined a team and went on quite a few investigations. This is a fantastic opportunity for us. Etta looks into the locations we are due to go on i.e. she is the researcher.

Dreamers Radio is excited to welcome Susan Stoker, author of Outback Hearts.
Taken from Susan Stoker's Amazon page:
"Susan Stoker has a heart as big as the state of Texas where she lives but this all American girl has also spent the last fourteen years living in Missouri, California, Colorado, and Indiana. She is quite the romantic and even met the love of her life on "Hotmail classified" before online dating and sites like match.com even existed!
Susan has been reading romance novels since middle school and once crossed out the names of the main characters in a book and changed them to her own and to the name of her crush. She's been writing scenes for years, developing her unique writing style.
Susan loves writing but her true passion is adopting dogs from rescue groups and shelters. Susan and her husband have had a total of nine "rescued" dogs since 2000 including a variety of basset hounds and bloodhounds. She has recently branched out and adopted a basset/terrier mix who acts more like a terrier than a basset (i.e. digging, eating a couch and being hyper). If you love romance and want to help her support adopting great dogs, be sure to check out her work."
You can find out more about her, keep informed of all her news, and snag a copy of her book at the below links!
We again broadcast with candidates as guests...this time with an old friend & a new visitor.
James Harrison Nixon will be making his third appearance on The Social Spitball Show.
Nixon is a different kind of candidate and a different kind of Democrat for a Southern state that desperately needs different leaders. He is that leader who stands for Medicaid Expansion, common sense gun ownership (and regulations), Autism Awareness (and legislative support), as well as equal rights for all Georgians. Nixon doesn't shy away from any group that will have him to speak about his vision, which harbors both conservative and progressive ideals.
Listen to learn more about this outstanding candidate as we talk about what's happening in the Empire State of the South: http://www.jamesharrisonnixon2014.com/
William Osborne, Democratic Nominee for North Carolina Senate in District 26, will be making his first appearance on The Social Spitball Show.
Osborne is a recent former Chair of the Rockingham County Democratic Party & knows how to organize. He'll be putting those leadership skills in play as he becomes a high profile Senate candidate in a "winnable district" against the current Republican NC Senate leader Phil Berger in November. Berger's leadership, along with Thom Tillis' leadership of the NC House as Speaker, has decimated decades of progress made in North Carolina by members of both parties as North Carolina became a progressive beacon of the South.
Tune in to hear his plan to put North Carolina back to work and to restore sanity to the legislature in Raleigh: http://www.electwosborne.com/
These two men look to initiate needed change in the capitals of two hurting states of the South, due to irresponsible Republican leadership. That change depends on you.
Let's get the conversation going...
Our modern American society is so fractured with violent rhetoric & periodic violent actions against each other. Many of the older generations remember a time when compromise was not such a dirty word of virtual political surrender to the other side. Times were more civil decades ago...or were they?
Our guest for Sunday, June 29 is Claire Connner Mork, who wrote the sensational and critically acclaimed book, "Wrapped in the Flag: A Personal History of America's Radical Right."
The truth is history really does repeat itself. Claire grew up in a household run by two Chicago area organizers of the radically conservative group The John Birch Society.
They filtered her world view with their own and checked her textbooks to make sure no liberal bias entered her young & powerfully developing mind. So, in the atmosphere of Cold War Joe McCarthy Communist witch hunts, young Claire Conner found herself at a "safe conservative" school in Dallas, Texas in November of 1963.
The roots of what is happening today can be traced to the history that Ms. Conner Mork experienced firsthand. I'm intrigued, aren't you?
We'll also discuss current events and recent relevant topics. Call (646) 478-3349 to listen (please mute your phone) or talk (please press 1 to be placed in the queue to speak with our guest and/or us).
