The Paranormal News Insider first aired in September, 2008, as a short segment during the monthly Grand Dark Conspiracy radio show until August of 2010 (23 shows) when it went weekly from August 30, 2010, until December, 2013, (162 shows) on various internet-based networks. The show continued on August 5, 2014, on WQTT AM 1270 from Marysville, Ohio, during the Grand Dark Conspiracy.
In February, 2015, the Grand Dark Conspiracy changed its name to Darkest Hours Late Night. In May, 2015, the Darkest Hours Late Night left WQTT and the Paranormal News Insider had been homeless since. On September 8, 2015, after 230 shows the Paranormal News Insider became a one hour standalone show on WCJV Digital Broadcasting airing on Tuesday nights at 7 PM eastern.
The final show of 2016 on December 27th covered the Top Ten Paranormal Stories from 2010 through 2015 and recapped the top ten this year before revealing the top two stories, plus enjoy the "Top Five Paranormal Hoaxes of 2016" as well! Hear the archive here on the archive home of the Paranormal News Insider, Podbean.
The Top Ten Countdown has become a tradition with the Paranormal News Insider since 2010 and it continues today. You can also read about the Top Ten stories at the official blog home of the Paranormal News Insider on blogspot.
The "Paranormal Poll" is a way to gauge the listening audience on a variety of hot topics in the paranormal/anomalous field. After taking the poll I would hope that you could offer a few lines of information as to why you made your choice. These answers may be read on air during the Paranormal News Insider and may also help form future blog posts about these topics. Your view points will be added to the resources of that particular blog so that your input is yours. My blogs would be geared toward being a balanced look at these topics and attempting to be as objective as possible and allow the reader to form their own opinion. However, facts and research will also be provided to potentialy sway the focus in a particular direction if the weight is enough to do so. Check out the official Paranormal News Insider "Paranormal Poll" page.
Dr. Brian joined host Frank Lee on the Paranormalities and Ponderings radio show on WCJV Digital Broadcasting on January 26, 2016 and again on February 16, 2016. During the shows we discussed how to properly apply science to paranormal research, how to validate data and how to debunk hoaxes and a lot of other topics. Click here to listen to the archive for 1/26/201616 and here for the 2/16/2016 show.
January 26, 2016 was also the 250th episode of the Paranormal News Insider. While the show itself was not a celebration of that fact, it was still an amazing accomplishment in my opinion and I am proud of the longetivity of the show. The 300th show should hopefully take place on January 31, 2017 at the current pace.
What happens when you put a skeptical anomalous researcher on the air with a lay religious demonologist?

There was no live show on November 17, 2015 due to server issues and I was faced with a dilemma. I had already missed one show just prior to Halloween due to system upgrades and I did not want to let another week pass without news. But, I had already promised to do back-to-back shows the following Tuesday live on WCJV. I had been thinking of creating short segments similar to how I started out, but limit them in time and this is what I did. Introducing; the Paranormal News Insider Xpress.
The Paranormal News Insider Xpress is a five minute or less quick version of the paranormal news from my point of view. It's for those of you that just do not have the time to listen to a one hour show or want to know the news in a condensed version. However, you are missing out on the details brought to you in the one hour show as well as the live links featuring videos, photos, and stories I share in the chat room during the live experience. If this version generates interest I will continue it and may even offer the segment to appear on other paranormal shows. Stay tuned.
