NEXT WEEK : Jeff Belanger, "Ghost Files"
BoA:Audio returns to the ghost realm with an A-list name from that genre, Jeff Belanger, creater of the online juggernaut "Ghost Village." We'll cover a number of gems from his latest book "Ghost Files", including the various theories on what ghosts are, the commercialisation of haunted locations, Jewish exorcisms, Jeff's global travels investigating haunted places, dealing with skeptics, the evolution of orbs, and other fun stuff. We'll also examine big picture issues like the explosion in popularity for ghost hunting and esoterica on the internet.
It's a fun, loose, and, at times, frank discussion with a researcher at the very top of the wildly popular field that is ghost research.
