April 23, 2017 (DOWNLOAD — Free Version): 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: With guest go-host Goggs Mackay, The Paracast returns to the traditional Ufology and UFO sighting mold with Bob Spearing, a MUFON field investigator who has investigated over 500 cases. He is part of MUFON’ s elite special assignment team and is their International Director for Spain and India. Robert is frequently published in the MUFON Journal and other publications, has spoken at UFO conventions, and maintains the website World UFO Watch. An expert on orange orbs, Robert will trace the history of this incredible phenomenon and whether it exhibits evidence of intelligence. He’ll also talk about what he calls “nuts and bolts UFOs.”
After The Paracast: Available exclusively for Paracast+ subscribers: Gene and guest co-host Goggs Mackay rap about regional accents before diving in to the nuts and bolts of Paracast guest Robert Spearing’s research into orange orbs and similar phenomena. Gene observes that he follows the typical MUFON approach, which is to focus on the event and not the witness. Gene also brings up a report, first posted by former MUFON investigator Erica Lukes, that the organization’s database of UFO sightings is now restricted to paid members. It’s no longer available to anyone else. Gene and Goggs discuss the report that one of the witnesses to the 1976 Allagash Wilderness Waterway abduction, one Chuck Rak, has since recanted his story about the event. He claims it didn’t happen, although the other three witnesses to the waterborne encounter continue to claim it did.

NOW PLAYING! April 23, 2017 — Robert Spearing with Goggs Mackay
With guest go-host Goggs Mackay, The Paracast returns to the traditional Ufology and UFO sighting mold with Bob Spearing, a MUFON field investigator who has investigated over 500 cases. He is part of MUFON’ s elite special assignment team and is their International Director for Spain and India.

April 16, 2017 — Stan Gordon
Gene and Chris present long-time researcher Stan Gordon, who tells us that he had a busy 2016 investigating sightings of UFOs, Bigfoot and Crypids in Pennsylvania. Says Stan: “Since I began researching and documenting such oddities from across Pennsylvania in 1959 as a curious ten year old boy, many thousands of mysterious incidents have continued to be reported, and such cases occur annually.” He maintains that, “UFO sightings and other strange encounters reported each year that can’t be so easily dismissed,” and you’ll hear about some of the most compelling anomalous reports during this episode.
April 9, 2017 — Paul Eno
Author and radio host Paul Eno returns to The Paracast to talk about his “unified field theory” for paranormal events. Is it possible that UFOs, ghosts, Bigfoot and other phenomena are all part of our multiverse? How does this view compare with the traditional view of space visitors, missing links and life after death? Paul — and his son Ben — are co-hosts of the Behind the Paranormal radio show. They are also co-authors of a book based on their radio show studies, also called “Behind the Paranormal: Everything You Know is Wrong.” Is it? Paul will ask some thought-provoking questions about the paranormal that cry out for logical solutions.
April 2, 2017 — Ray Stanford
In the early days of the UFO field, such characters as George Adamski, Daniel W. Fry, Truman Bethurum, George Van Tassel and others gained some measure of fame — or infamy — when they claimed to be in regular contact with beings from other planets. UFO researcher and amateur paleontologist Ray Stanford, and his twin brother Rex, were there to observe these people in action; the good, the bad, and the ugly. Ray will tell you how Adamski and Fry faked their UFO photos and movies to help spread their wacky tales of ET contact. You’ll learn, also, about a possible case of genuine contact with someone from “out there.” As he tells us, there’s “a lot to share.”
March 26, 2017 — John L. Steadman
Gene and Chris present yet another subject we haven’t explored with John L. Steadman, author of “H.P. Lovecraft & the Black Magical Tradition,” which explores “the real black magickal organizations that use Lovecraft’s fictional constructs as a basis for their magickal workings; I argue that such constructs can be used in this manner and that the Lovecraftian entities are just as ontologically ‘real’ as traditional gods, goddesses and demons.” John L. Steadman is a scholar of H. P. Lovecraft and western occultism and has been a magickal practitioner for more than thirty years. He is currently a college English professor at Olivet College in Michigan. And, yes, he has had paranormal encounters over the years.
March 19, 2017 — Dr. Robert Davis and Dr. Maree Batchelor
Dr. Robert Davis, author of “The UFO Phenomenon: Should I Believe?” returns to The Paracast withan update from the Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters (FREE),” where over 4,000 experiencers have responded to a questionnaire about their encounters. You’ll also hear from Dr. Maree Batchelor, a psychic healer. According to Dr. Davis, “Maree was able to facilitate a life changing transformative awakening in me through a channeling session. Others who I referred to her have had similar positive psycho-spiritual outcomes (i.e., kundalini awakening, ascension, etc.).” During this episode, Dr. Batchelor will be asked to demonstrate her healing abilities on Gene.
March 12, 2017 — Leslie Kean with co-host Erica Lukes
With her book, “Surviving Death: A Journalist Investigates Evidence for an Afterlife,” journalist Leslie Kean takes her interest in the paranormal to a totally new direction. Here’s what Leslie says about what spurred her new quest: “While exploring the evidence for an afterlife, I witnessed some unbelievable things that are not supposed to be possible in our material world. Yet they were unavoidably and undeniably real. Despite my initial doubt, I came to realize that there are still aspects of Nature which are neither understood or accepted, even though their reality has profound implications for understanding the true breadth of the human psyche and its possible continuity after death.” Before writing about UFOs and the afterlife, Leslie worked as a freelance writer and radio producer for a number of major media outlets. Erica Lukes is guest co-host.
March 5, 2017 — Women’s Roundtable with Erica Lukes, Chase Kloetzke and Kathleen Marden
Gene and Chris present a special women’s roundtable featuring Erica Lukes, Chase Kloetzke and Kathleen Marden. What obstacles have the women of Ufology faced in breaking the glass ceiling, and being taken seriously, and how about some of the great achievements of women in the field? Erica Lukes is currently researching historical and current sightings in Utah and is the Communications Director of the International Association of UAP Researchers. She hosts a weekly show on KCOR called “UFO Classified.” Chase Kloetzke is Deputy Director of Investigations and Special Case Manager for MUFON. Kathleen Marden is associated with the Mutual UFO Network, as Director of Experiencer Research and the Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters, as an advisory board member and consultant to its research subcommittee.
