There is $5,000 up for grabs for anyone that can communicate to the dead and reveal a mysterious secret word that SpookHunter Owen and Deep Throat had together.
Deep Throat unexpectadly died in October of 2014. Owen, the most successful paranormal investigator of all time, is quoted as saying "$5,000 is a small price to pay for confirmation that there's an afterlife."
This is not the first time SpookHunter Owen has had a secret word challenge. Owen had a secert word with and grandfather before his death in 2008. In 2014 Owen revealed the word to be "Walrus Penis". Some have complained that it was in reality two words.
"Doesn't matter." SpookHunter Owen says. "If you can truely communicate with the dead, you would have heard my grandfather say 'Walrus Penis'. No one ever came close. There is no after life. I could offer $500,000 and no one can just guess this, unless they speak to Wes (Deaap Throat)"
Owen will eventually reveal the secret word if no one guesses it. Scheduled for the 5year anniversary of Deep Throat's passing.
Do you have a guess?
PROFESSOR SLIM KING, a Houdini expert and illusionist, will be in the studio LIVE to wager some guesses. He'll be available to answer any and all of your question.
Live Psychic Readings are avalible if there is time.

Director John Wager is not only a Grammy-award winning producer and composer for film and television and an accomplished musician and songwriter, he has also worked with countless celebrities, everyone from Oprah Winfrey, and Kevin Spacey to Magic Johnson and Reba McEntire.
He recently received high accolades for "Bicycle Lessons," a documentary that aired on the Discovery Channel and has been prominently featured in film festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe.
But the documenatry he directed, "Comedy Warriors: Healing Through Humor," already is making a big splash after its premier at the Palm Beach International Film Festival.
Working with Wounded Warrior Project, he had the opportunity to film hundreds of hours of interviews with injured service members. Through that experience, he created this full-length documentary. It follows five severely injured service members embarking on a new and challenging journey as they write and perform stand-up comedy with the help of the best in the business, comedians like Lewis Black, Zach Galifianakis, B.J. Novak and Bob Saget. As part of the film the warriors also tell their poignant stories of what they have gone through and the role that humor plays in their rehabilitation. The film culminates in a live performance event at top Los Angeles comedy clubs,The Improv and the Laugh Factory.
