My former guest, broadcast colleague, and someone whom I  call my friend, Raymond Wiley, will appear on Brad Meltzer’s Decoded, tomorrow, February 03, 2011,  at 10:00 PM EST on the History Channel.  The topic of the episode, “Apocalypse in Georgia,” which will mark the finale of the program’s first season, is the Georgia Guidestones, an ominous  roadside site  and/or possible Masonic riddle, which is near and dear to Ray’s heart (and  also a short drive from his former haunt at UGA) .

Raymond Wiley, now working for the Disinformation Company, as their Promotions Director and Podcast Host, humbly started his fortean radio career with the 50-episode  podcast,  Out There! Radio.
