The Thin Veil

It’s that time of the year again. Halloween is upon us, followed by the day of the dead. I’ve heard from psychics, witches, healers, ministers and paranormal investigators throughout the years; the veil is thin this time of year. Yes, I have had experiences this time of year and every other time of the year….


Recording Requirements for EVP/AVP Investigations

The trend in investigation these days seems to be toward using phones or an app for everything. The result of this has been more and more evidence that is unsuited for analysis or study. The problem is that phones and most low-end audio devices lack sufficient bandwidth to obtain evidence that can hold up to…


Non-Christian Paranormal Practices: Evil or Misunderstood?

Non-Christian Paranormal Practices: Evil or Misunderstood? I will start this off by saying I was born into the Lutheran church, and now am a practicing Methodist.  So, I come at this question from a Christian perspective. That being said, I am also a Paranormal Investigator who has an open mind, heart and belief system.  …


Layers of a Haunting: Why Limit Ourselves?

This week, I want to put something out there for discussion: When we go out on a paranormal investigation, we seem pretty confident that we know who (and what) we’re trying to communicate with. Well, maybe we’re confident 50% of the time. It’s likely that the statistic is smaller than that. However, we try to…


The Difference Between Real Life Ghost Hunting & Ghost Hunting on TV

Greetings from Williamsburg, VA! I must say that the entertainment industry seems to be taking a step back from paranormal reality TV.

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to sit down with a historian and talk history. What else would we talk about, right? Besides friendly banter, I am always up to talk to an expert in their field. Sure, we do a decent job with the historical research and keeping up with the facts….

Are Hauntings Just Meant to Be Experienced?

This may seem like an odd post considering APs is so centric in research and data collecting. But, hear me out. Right now, we live in a society where we are always looking down on our phones or watching the world through a computer. That has translated into how we investigate the paranormal. While I…


Our Fascination with ITC

Ghost boxes, shack hack radios, Frank’s Box, Echovox, oh my! Instrumental Trans-Communication, better known as ITC. If you’re involved in the paranormal community and/or investigating, you’ve probably seen this term A LOT and might have even participated in said practice. ITC is a technique of using electronic means to communicate with ghosts. In this day…


The Waning Novelty of Ghost Hunting

As I prepare for our team’s upcoming expedition to Gettysburg, I find myself reflecting on the ghost hunting community. I want to be very specific when I say “ghost hunting” because I don’t want it to be confused with paranormal research. While the trend of ghost hunting is fading a bit thanks to the dwindling…
