The Weakly Ghost Bulletin #1

10 January, 2015 // 2 Comments

I’ve decided to trial a new feature on my blog called The Weakly Ghost Bulletin. It will be a week by week update on any ridiculous and weak ghost stories that have made it into the mainstream news in the past seven days. As this is the first bulletin of 2015 I am going to include the last ten days. Watch Terrifying Ghost Pursue Car This [...]

Thoughts On Experiences Of Skeptic Podcasting

29 December, 2014 // 2 Comments

About six years ago I was asked by a friend if I’d contribute to a podcast he’d had the idea to start. There was a real lack of British skeptical podcasts at that time – especially those that focussed on weird news stories. We were both paranormal researchers who had come to the dark side (skepticism). I said yes, we recorded an [...]

My Top Reads of 2014

UPDATED: The add The Martian by Andy Weir to the book, which I read after writing this (but still during 2014) This post is inspired by a similar one written by Samanta Stein. I received a Tablet for Christmas 2013 on which I have the Kindle App which saw the amount of books I got through in 2014 rocket. There are so many books that I have read [...]

As a self confessed ghost geek I am really interested in modern paranormal phenomena of all shapes and sizes. I also love reading ghost stories, with The End of The Line being one of the best books I read in 2914. It’s an anthology of horror stories based on or around underground railway systems which I bought because the real life ghost [...]

Since 2010 I have been writing an end-of-year summary of the five ghost stories that made me grumpy or angry because of their rubbish nature and 2014 is in no way different. Technically there are still eleven days left in the year at the time of writing this but I think (read ‘hope‘) it’s safe to assume that Christmas and New [...]

The “Explain That” Game

29 November, 2014 // 1 Comment

Earlier this month I found myself in the unfortunate position of having no choice but to suffer as a radio presenter fired ghost anecdote after ghost anecdote at me. He’d collected them from his listeners and then demanded that I solve them right there on the other end of the telephone while live in air with no prior warning. It was unfair, [...]

The Shirt That Matt Wore

16 November, 2014 // 3 Comments

I started blogging about seven or eight years ago and in that time many people have found the things I write about to be offensive, usually because I criticise or disagree with ideas they believe are true. Some people have written to people I was employed by to demand I be fired from my previous jobs, others have threatened to harm me if I [...]
