Hi guys, been awhile since I've been here.
I stopped listening to Coast to Coast nearly two years ago. The way I see it, that ship sank a looooong time ago. BUT, I need something to listen to. I miss having some sort of outlet for my interest in the paranormal and since the art bell stream vanished I have pretty much just been listening to news broadcasts. So I have been exploring podcasts and what not and all I have to say is holy shit. It's like someone gave the current audience of Coast to Coast a mic. I DO NOT want to listen to other 'believers' pat each other on the back and peddle their own books/websites/services exclusively. This is especially true of any Ghost themed show, as ALL of them have their own little paranormal investigation squads with enough pseudoscience and pomp to make them feel credible. And some of their websites look like museums to web design in 1998.
Do any of you know of any decent hosts out there that deal with the paranormal from a skeptical or unbiased viewpoint? That was one of the things they kept me listening to Art Bell. While he did allow alot of absolute shit on his show, I usually had a sense that he was on the fence and wouldn't just sit there without challenging/engaging the ideas being presented. I have listened to nearly 50 different shows over the past month and usually cant make it past the 20 minute mark from the sheer 'THIS IS FACT, SILLY NONBELEIVERS' attitude of the hosts. I'm not really looking for 'skeptic' radio either, as I don't want to listen to "THERE IS NO GOD YOU SILLY PLEB" radio either. So do any of you know of any hosts out there who engages with the same spirit as Art Bell? Open to possibility but staying grounded in reality. I figure this is a stretch but figured I would ask before giving up the ghost of finding a decent show.
