Welcome to the Spooky Stuff podcast. In this episode, Robert Murch and Rick “Ormortis” Schreck stop by the paranormal table to talk about the infamous Ouija board. They talk about the history of the Ouija board, the media’s influence on how the board is viewed, Shreck’s famous Ouijazilla, and how they came to become avid collectors and experts on talking boards.
Robert Murch is the world’s foremost collector, historian, and expert on Ouija and Talking Boards and serves as the Chairman of the Board for the Talking Board Historical Society which he founded. His bizarre relationship with Ouija began after watching Kevin Tenney’s Witchboard in 1986, a century after the talking board made its debut. Murch purchased his first antique Ouija board in 1992 and became obsessed with unraveling the mystery of its origins. Since then, he’s devoted his life to researching the history of the Ouija board and its founders, with Murch often traveling the world to track down descendants of all those involved with the introduction of the mystifying oracle.
Rick “Ormortis” Schrek serves in TBHS along with Murch as Vice President. Ironically his collecting started the same year as Murch 1992 when he visited Salem Mass for the first time. Rick and Murch have known each other for a long time as friends and fellow collectors before the formation of the TBHS. His passion for collecting talking boards is rivaled by his obsession of making them which he has been doing for about 17 years. He uses materials that most won't touch, wood from embalming tables and funeral type stuff. Rick’s biggest accomplishment is his Ouija board -OuijaZilla, the largest Ouija Board on the planet. It is featured in Ripley's Believe it or Not, Bind Blown, 2020. You can find more info about Rick at ouijazilla.com.
