December 14, 2014 (DOWNLOAD): The Paracast is a paranormal radio show that takes you on a journey to a world beyond science, where UFOs, poltergeists and strange phenomena of all kinds have been reported by millions. The Paracast seeks to shed light on the mysteries and complexities of our Universe and the secrets that surround us in our everyday lives.

Join long-time paranormal researcher Gene Steinberg, co-host Christopher O’Brien, a seasoned field investigator, and a panel of special guest experts and experiencers, as they explore the realms of the known and unknown. Listen each week to the great stories of the history of the paranormal field in the 20th and 21st centuries.

On this week's show: Gene and Chris present cutting-edge theorist George Hansen, author of a trendsetting work, "The Trickster and the Paranormal," a book that was instrumental in influencing Chris O'Brien's research and thinking process for his 2009 book "Stalking the Tricksters: Shapeshifters, Skinwalkers, Dark Adepts and 2012." Hansen has been a longtime paranormal researcher in academia, science and elsewhere. As he states at his site, "The paranormal encompasses everything from levitating monks to ESP, from spirits to cattle mutilations—an incredible and unsavory hodgepodge. The mix seems incoherent. But the trickster makes sense of it."

Coming December 21: Gene and Chris present Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke returns to the Paracast to talk about her new book, "Sky People: Untold Stories of Alien Encounters in Mesoamerica." According to the publisher's notes, Ardy vowed as a teenager to follow in the footsteps of two 19th-century explorers, John L. Stephens and Frederick Catherwood, who were among the first to bring the ancient Maya cities to the world's attention. She finally set out on her seven-year adventure in 2003 and traveled through Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico, collecting stories of encounters, sky gods, giants, little people, and aliens among the indigenous Maya. She drove more than 12,000 miles, visiting 89 archaeological sites and conducted nearly 100 individual interviews. We'll present some of the most fascinating tales during this episode.

Download NOW PLAYING! December 14, 2014 — George Hansen

Gene and Chris present cutting-edge theorist George Hansen, author of a trendsetting work, "The Trickster and the Paranormal," a book that was instrumental in influencing Chris O'Brien's research and thinking process for his 2009 book "Stalking the Tricksters: Shapeshifters, Skinwalkers, Dark Adepts and 2012." Hansen has been a longtime paranormal researcher in academia, science and elsewhere. As he states at his site, "The paranormal encompasses everything from levitating monks to ESP, from spirits to cattle mutilations—an incredible and unsavory hodgepodge. The mix seems incoherent. But the trickster makes sense of it."


Download December 7, 2014 — Peter Robbins

Gene and Chris present long-time UFO researcher and author Peter Robbins, author of a free seven-part eBook, "Deliberate Deception: A Case of Disinformation in the UFO Research Community," published by Phenomena Magazine. The book reportedly "has huge implications, not only for the Rendlesham Forest incident, but for Ufology in general." In short, Robbins is accusing Nick Pope, lead author of "Encounter in Rendlesham Forest,"  of engaging in disinformation in his book. You can download a free copy of Robbins' book here: "Deliberate Deception." In addition to his ongoing research into the 1980 Rendlesham Forest episode, Robbins has extensive experience exploring UFO abductions and the work of Wilhelm Reich.


Download November 30, 2014 — Dr. Bruce Maccabee

Gene and Chris present UFO investigator and optical scientist Dr. Bruce Maccabee to talk about his newest book entitled, "The FBI-CIA-UFO Connection." This is a provocative look at what these agencies know about the UFO phenomenon, and what the author claims are their efforts to conceal the truth from the public. What the government may or may not know about UFOs has long been a subject of speculation. Getting a handle on what evidence they might have has been a goal of researchers for decades, and we are all curious to see just what evidence Dr. Maccabee has delivered.


Download November 23, 2014 — William J. Hall

Gene and Chris present William J. Hall, author of 'The World's Most Haunted House: The True Story of the Bridgeport Poltergeist on Lindley Street." According to the publisher of Hall's book, "What may be the most notorious and most terrifying poltergeist haunting of recent decades, the Bridgeport poltergeist was seen and heard by thousands of people on one unforgettable day in 1974. One of the local youngsters, William J. Hall, remembers every detail. Hall grew up to become a magician and a well-known investigator of the paranormal and the unexplained, writing a syndicated column on those subjects for many years in Connecticut newspapers. Now Hall returns to his past to share never-before reported interviews of the first responders and other witnesses, and previously unrevealed documents and reports…" This episode will also feature an actual recording of an eyewitness interview.


Download November 16, 2014 — Don Ecker

Gene and Chris present the one and only and always Don Ecker, host of the real "Dark Matters" radio show (accept no substitutes!) to talk about the death of "UFO Magazine," the state of UFO research, lunar mysteries, possible conspiracies, the almost complete lack of traditional investigative reporting and a whole lot more. You'll also hear Don's answers to questions from our listeners.


Download November 9, 2014 — Larry Holcombe

Gene and Chris present Larry Holcombe, long time student of the UFO mystery, author of "Presidents and UFOs: A Secret History from FDR to Obama." Just what do they know about the UFO mystery? Are they read in to the truth, or, as temporary residents of government service, not considered to have a "need to know"? Larry's book features a forward by Stanton T. Friedman. You'll be especially interested in these comments from Larry's blog, "I continue to believe that Roswell, and the bungling of crash retrieval events, was the defining moment in the development of the United States policy towards the UFO issue. My writing and speaking efforts now center on bringing light to bear on media indifference to the UFO issue, and the continued United States denial and cover-up of UFO issues while other countries around the world open their files and acknowledge the existence of UFO’s."


Download November 2, 2014 — Micah Hanks with Goggs Mackay

If it's paranormal, Micah Hanks is covering it on his various blogs and his radio show, The Gralien Report. So you'll hear about his fundamental philosophy not just on UFOs, but about hauntings and the like. He'll also cover the latest scuttlebutt in the UFO field, such as the renewed MJ-12 debate with Stanton Friedman and Robert Hastings (with Stanton in for, Robert against), Mirage Men, sightings, disclosure, and lots more. We are joined by one of our friendly forum moderators and guest co-host, Goggs Mackay.


Download October 26, 2014 — Richard Dolan

Gene and Chris welcome back Richard Dolan, who returns to talk about his new book "UFOs for the 21st Century Mind: A Fresh Guide to an Ancient Mystery," which is garnering rave reviews. Unlike other books on the subject, Dolan gives a thorough overview of the subject starting in the ancient past and working his way to the present day. He re-examines the classic cases and looks at the political, economic, religious, scientific and cultural implications of UFOs, not to mention the current state of ufology. The topic of disclosure is addressed at length. We'll cover a wide range of subjects and Dolan responds to questions from our listeners.
