Quadcopter drone captures video footage of infamous black-eyed child No, International Business Times, it did not. It did not at all.

2 May, 2015 // 1 Comment

I’ve had a Fortean Times subscription for a number of years because I largely find the features interesting, but I’ve found myself becoming more and more frustrated at certain features in the last year or so when certain ghost stories are given uncritical promotion, or when the author fails to remain unbiased. In FT327 The Cage in St [...]

Being The Token Skeptic: My Experience On BBC Radio West Midlands

1 May, 2015 // 0 Comments

I got a phone call this morning from BBC Radio West Midlands asking if I would go on their show to discuss the sense of presence research that has recently made the headlines again. I agreed because there were a few interesting points I was hoping to make about the research. Firstly, the researchers are not suggesting that their findings can [...]

Please Help Me Make My Video Series

28 April, 2015 // 0 Comments

I have today launched an Indiegogo campaign in an attempt to fund a video series that I plan to produce to reach a wider audience in a way that isn’t restricted by written word. Can you really find water with dowsing rods? How easy is it to make a ghost hoax go viral? What happens if you lock a skeptic in a haunted house? Why do Ouija boards [...]

I Am A QEDcon Fan, Here’s Why

27 April, 2015 // 17 Comments

I feel as though QEDcon and the organisation team behind it does not get enough credit. Sure, they won an award last year for their brilliance, sure there are thousands of adoring tweets and Facebook messages telling them how amazing they and their events are, sure they sell every ticket and pack out the large venue in Manchester, sure over 500 [...]

Weakly Ghost Bulletin #10

Can you spot the ghost at the Galleries of Justice Museum? Frankly? No. I can see what looks like a squished up face but years of watching Ghost Webcams as a teenager tells me that this is the pixellation of the photo causing an illusion.
