Paradigm 2014

I have the pleasure of returning once again to speak at the Paradigm Symposium in Minneapolis, MN this year. 
If you're interested in alternative ideas and thinking, you'll feel right at home at this event.  Drawing speakers and attendees from around the world, the Paradigm Symposium has quickly become a premiere event in the field.

Symposium organizers Scotty Roberts of Intrepid magazine and Egyptologist DR. John Ward, have put together an amazing lineup this year including Graham Hancock, Erich Von Däniken, Andrew Collins and a host of others.

Advanced tickets are available now, register right away if you'd like to take part in the special VIP banquet on Saturday night, a crowd favorite that's sure to sell out.  Details available here:

"Admissible" Reviewed


I’m often asked for recommendations of books useful for new investigators and those interested in taking a serious approach to the paranormal and related fields.  Although there are thousands of books published on paranormal topics, there are very few practical manuals to assist investigators in learning the proper process of gathering evidence and pursuing cases.  Fortunately, Chase Kloetzke and Richard Dolan have stepped in to fill the void.

“Admissible,” the new release from this pair of veteran investigators fills a big gap in the field and proves to be a useful text for both novice and seasoned explorers of the strange.

In recent years, there’s been a boom in the number of people interested in investigating the paranormal.  Fueled by the popularity of paranormal reality shows, this new crop of investigators is an enthusiastic lot but they often have little investigative experience.
For those approaching the field as a part time hobby, this is less of an issue.  However, for those who have a deeper interest in probing strange cases and want to take a more serious approach, it’s essential to learn investigative techniques and proper evidence collection.

Subtitled “The Field Manual for Investigating UFOs, Paranormal Activity, and Strange Creatures,” Kloetzke and Dolan’s manual fulfills its promise to provide practical, useful information in a clear and concise manner.
The book walks you step by step through the investigative process.  The authors begin with an introduction to the basics, including organization and planning.  Following sections cover investigation conduct and the interview process, evidence collection and cataloging, and investigation closure.  The book is rounded off with clear guidelines for maintaining records and an appendix of useful forms that can be copied and utilized for individuals or groups.

But don’t think for a moment that this is a dry technical manual.  Bullet points and checklist throughout help note special items of interest and the illustrations by Chuck Harrison add to the shear entertainment value of the book. 
Kloetzke is a former MUFON Star Team manager and has traveled extensively in her pursuit of strange cases.  Dolan of course is a well known figure in the field of UFOlogy for his outstanding work, the two volume “UFOs and the National Security State.”

Overall, this is a valuable reference guide and you certainly can’t go wrong adding it to your library.
Published by Richard Dolan Press, Admissible is available at Amazon.  For more information about Chase’s work, check out her website at:

It's always a pleasure to be on Spirit Talk, the format is conversational and with our similar backgrounds, Chris and I have a great time delving into some interesting aspects of these weird creatures.
