Private Eye Investigates Life After Death

“In this interview, James Van Praagh turns the tables on me and interviews me on his Hay House Radio show, Talking To Spirit.

After all, that’s what my show is all about–discovering new ideas and possibilities about life after death.” ~ Warmly, Bob Olson, Afterlife TV

    Hi Bob,

    I am so glad that I have found your site because of all the comfort that I have gained from your interviews and research in trying to work through my grief.
    My mom died from sudden cardiac arrest a little over three months ago. She was only 51 and we had no idea that her heart problems would lead to her dying at such a young age. Her death raised a lot of questions about what happens when we die so I started to search online to find some answers and that’s how I eventually found your site.
    I have since her passing received multiple signs that makes me believe that she is still watching over me but since I would like to have some evidence of my own that there really is an afterlife I’ve booked a session with a medium that is known from TV here in Sweden so hopefully she will turn out to be the real deal.

    Thanks again for all that you do and I will try to order your book from Amazon asap because it sounds like an amazing read for sure.

    Love and Light,

      Thanks Camilla,

      Very sorry to learn about your mother’s passing. I hope you’re doing okay. And I hope your reading with the medium went well.

    HI – firstly let me just say that this message is really intended for bob olson even though I very much doubt he will ever hear about it (sadly) I will probably get some kind of vague reply (if any) from some moderator or other which is sad because I would really like to know bobs views on what I feel about mediums/ psychics etc, before I begin I want all concerned to realise that I have all the respect in the world for bob and what he does, just in case this message got off on a sombre note, I would genuinely like to hear bobs thoughts on what I have always felt about career mediums, I could never respect any career mediums because the gift of mediumship is so special it should be used to help people and not to advance ones own bloated career and fortune, I am well aware that bob has been asked before about mediums charging for their services and I more or less agree with what he had to say, if a medium substitutes his/her mediumship instead of working then I can accept that fees are fine however so many of these so called gifted people make millions from a bloated career and personal popularity, I would like to ask bob his sincere views on this and to also respectfully ask if he as ever listened to the recordings of spirits from the other side via a ectoplasmic voice box with leslie flint as medium, in a number of these recordings (if one finds time to listen) are comments made about mediums basically abusing their gift and using it for their own material ends which of course is whats happening, every time I get another e,mail from one of these so called mediums it just turns out to be another ad to sell something, very sad, I my self have believed in the after life for many decades and have studied even longer and can assure bob that those on the other side are far from happy about this situation, I have every respect for the real mediums of this world who do charge for sittings but do not make a career or amass a fortune from it, to use their gift in such a way belittles the concept and I for one can never respect anyone doing this as they are beneath contempt in my and others views, I could name names but bob already knows some of them, I do hope that this reaches bobs eyes but very much doubt it and another reason why I would like bobs reply is to put my own mind to rest as to the validity of the speak your mind section and last but not least I would respect bobs comments most dearly- thanks for reading. harry

      Hi Harry,

      I’m pretty sure we’re both in agreement about many, if not most, of those people or corporations who are sending out mass emails to people advertising for their business to sell them vague readings. To be honest, however, this has nothing to do with the work I do. Most of the people behind these emails are not mediums; they are merely sleazy marketers pretending to be mediums in order to take advantage of people. The true mediums, the legitimate mediums, with whom I work closely do not practice in this way. To be perfectly honest, most of the mediums I know are so right-brained that they wouldn’t have a clue as to how to market themselves so aggressively.

      So we are talking about apples and oranges here. The same sleazy marketers are pretending to be lawyers, accountants, and even long lost relatives who need money. Scam artists wear all sorts of costumes. So just because a few call themselves mediums is not a reflection on the legitimate mediums at all–it’s a sad reflection of the dark side of society.

      So I appreciate your comment Harry. And for those who have not read my article on mediums and their fees, you will enjoy what I wrote about it here (the article Harry referred to):

      My warmest wishes to you,

    Hi Bob,

    Wonderful interview Bob. I am so very happy to hear that you are planning to continue this program. You are a real “love and light” to the world, great teacher and healer. Please never stop. I got to know James through this website and I’m not sure if he would read this, but after seeing him in person, i figured he is such a lovely, sweet, down to earth and unbelievably gifted person. I love his energy. Hope to meet with you in person as well Bob. Thank you

    Nooshin <3

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Nooshin,

      Thank you. New episodes coming very soon. Yes, James really is a great guy and very down to earth. Hope we meet in person one day too.

      I’m glad you found me and my book too. Thank you for taking the time to write. I wish you the very best.


  7. Elias Nascimento says:

    Hi Bob!
    I’am “following” you since last year.
    I’m delighted to say this:
    It’s incredible how close all of your findings are to those of Allan Kardec, more than 150 years ago, about the spiritual world, the eternity of life, mediumship and even the non-existence of a place called hell.
    Keep up your good work!

  8. Jan says:

    Hi Bob,
    I am reading your book and I had a question. You had mentioned that you had seen many not great mediums from 1997-1999 and that you actually remained skeptical during that time. It was not until 1999 when you had a fabulous reading that your own views started to shift. Why did you continue to see mediums if you felt like they were frauds? I understand that you had not met an evidential medium yet and of course, I am very grateful you didn’t stop pursuing this, but what made you keep going?

    Thanks, Jan

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Jan,

      I had not seen any mediums in those first two years; I had only seen psychics, tarot readers and astrologers–that sort of practitioner. That’s not the practitioner to see if you’re seeking evidence of life after death. But that’s my point in telling that story. When I decided to use my skills as a private investigator to investigate life after death, I was a skeptic, although an open-minded skeptic. This, however, meant that I had no idea where to go for evidence of the afterlife. And in the late 1990s, most people had no idea what a medium was–most people didn’t know what the word meant, including me. And this is one of the many reasons I wrote my book, to show readers where I found evidence of life after death. Since I encourage my readers to become their own afterlife investigators, it’s important that they know where to begin.

      So what kept me going was my commitment to find evidence, if any evidence existed. In all honesty, I almost cancelled my appointment with the medium that first time due to my skepticism (I thought I was wasting my money). I’m certainly glad that my wife, Melissa, reminded me of my commitment to investigate life after death and the “possibility” that a medium might provide some of that evidence. Because of Melissa’s little pep talk, I kept the reading appointment and the rest is history.

      Thanks for your question.
