The Past Lives Podcast Ep202 – Richard Martini

This week I’m talking to Richard Martini about his book ‘Tuning into the Afterlife: How to Stay in Touch with the Flipside’.

This is the Ninth Book of Richard Martini’s Journey into the Flipside. Starting with “Flipside: A tourist’s guide on how to Navigate the afterlife” Richard has been filming people under hypnosis talking about the afterlife, as well as filming people not under hypnosis talking about the afterlife. He’s done interviews with mediums who work with law enforcement agencies nationwide on missing person cases (“Backstage Pass to the Flipside” with Jennifer Shaffer books 1, 2 and 3). He and Jennifer have a podcast where they weekly speak directly to folks no longer on the planet. ( The last book was “Architecture of the Afterlife” where he used the example of his father, R. Charles Martini, an architect in Chicago who taught him how to read a blueprint.

In this book, he focuses on the knowledge his mother gave him, a concert pianist who used to perform regularly in Washington during WWII, who often invited the first chairs of the Chicago Symphony to their home. That began a lifetime in music, including performing with bands in LA (“Imminent Disaster”) composing music for feature films (“Point of Betrayal” “Cannes Man”). In his interviews with mediums (Jennifer Shaffer, Kimberly Babcock, Raylene Nuanes) different musicians would come through to discuss what it was like for them on the flipside. By realizing he could ask more detailed questions from people who are no longer were on the planet, he took this musical journey into the “the afterlife.”

As Gary Schwartz PhD said about “Flipside” – “Once you’ve read this book, you’ll never see the world in the same way again.” A best selling author, he’s an award winning filmmaker who has written and/or directed 9 films, documentaries “Flipside” and “Hacking the Afterlife” are available online. Praise for “Architecture of the Afterlife” – “One of the things that makes this book so compelling and justifiable, IS the amount of EVIDENCE Martini amasses to backup the interviews, experiences and explorations undertaken here” “Eye opening, fascinating, and entertaining” Another home run for Rich Martini.” “Thought provoking, and just plain fun. I absolutely loved this book!”

Writer/Director/Author Richard is an award winning filmmaker, who has written and/or directed 9 theatrical features, and a number of documentaries. His first book, “Flipside: A Tourist’s Guide on How to Navigate the Afterlife” went to #1 twice at Amazon in all its genres. The book is based on transcripts of a documentary he made which is available at Amazon (Flipside: A Journey Into the Afterlife) and Gaia TV. His books “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife” volumes one and two expands the research into the afterlife from Michael Newton’s work, to include interviews with a number of scientists in the field of consciousness, including Dr. Bruce Greyson, Dr. Mario Beauregard, and Gary Schwartz Phd. He also examines near death experiences and compares their accounts to similar ones during between life sessions (the technique used by Michael Newton that allows people to access the between lives realm, or LBLs) and other examples (OBEs) where people may have lost their ability to think normally, but are having the same experiences. In “Hacking the Afterlife” he interviews mediums and explores “interviewing people no longer on the planet.” As Gary Schwartz put it after reading “Flipside” “Inspiring, well written and entertaining. The kind of book where once you have read it, you will no longer be able to see the world in the same way again.”
