Today, the thought that a demonic entity could potentially inhabit your physical body and suppress your personality and your spirit, leaving you without any control of yourself is truly terrifying. Depending on your religious background or your exposure to the Hollywood version of exorcism, I’ve often wondered how much of what we see in popular culture and cinema has taken creative liberties verses which aspects these accounts actually happened. I reached out to our guest today in hopes to find some answers.
This week I’m sitting down with Chad and Alta Dillard, authors of "Orbducted in the French Quarter", who have had an array of paranormal experiences, ultimately leading up to an abduction experience that you’re just going to have to hear for yourself.
This week I’m following up with Chris Wolford. We’ll be touching base on Tom Delonge, the terrifying concept of Gangstalking and how it just might be utilized today, and one of the most interesting photos I've ever seen of a ghost, or perhaps something else as this interview suggests.
A 40 year-old mystery surfaces when photos of an unidentified object over the ocean appear which are reportedly taken through the periscope of the USS Trepang in the Arctic. This week we take a deep dive into the photos to determine if they are authentic.
Seth Breedlove joins us today to talk about his latest film, Mothman of Point Pleasant. We discuss Mothman sightings from eye witness accounts among the residents of Point Pleasant in the 13 months that preceded the collapse of the Silver Bridge in 1967.
This week, we discuss Chris Wolford's encounter with alien greys and repeat encounters with unidentified craft. He also shares some info about his own research on UFO phenomena. In addition, Tom Delonge and why Chris considers it wise to avoid discounting him so quickly.
Today’s guest joins us to talk about potential alternative explanations for paranormal experiences. Michael Drane is a licensed psychotherapist who specializes in serious mental illness like Schizophrenia, Mood Disorders and Criminal Behavior. He’s also the Creator and Host of the Unpopular Culture Podcast where he and his crew of professionals dive into the underbelly of today’s society - they talk about true crime, the psychology behind the Netflix show Black Mirror, and they breakdown the psychology of modern society and various conspiracy theories.
Happy Paranormal Day! Today I have a very special treat for you all in the form of an extra (unscheduled) episode of Deviatus featuring Dalen Spratt, Juwan Mass and Marcus Harvey, otherwise known as the Ghost Brothers. In honor of Paranormal Day, this is an extra episode this week. I was fortunate enough to be able to have a phone conversation with the guys from Destination America’s Ghost Brothers last week. This is a show that has grown to be one of my favorites, and I have to tell you, they had me just rolling during this interview. I think I ended up having to edit out a few minutes just because I was laughing so hard and attempting to compose myself for the next question.
This week, Craig talks about the unknown history of deaths at the Hotel Del Coronado and the “Glenwood Ghost” and shadow figures of the Mission Inn. We’ll also dive into how Craig conducts his photo shoots, where he dresses models up in period clothing and has them act out various scenarios may actually be serving to trigger some of the paranormal activity he has experienced.
Today’s guest is a professional photographer, historian, and author of the upcoming book, Haunted by History Volume 1. Craig Owens is about to release his book, which explores 8 of the most notoriously-haunted hotels in Southern California. This is going to be a two-part episode that dives deep into some of Craig’s early paranormal experiences, including during his tenure working for Warner Brothers Studios, and some of the unexpected (and unexplained) events that occurred during the creation of his book.
Being a podcast listener myself, I’ve heard of people having UFO experiences along with Bigfoot experiences, or they’ve had shadow figures in their homes as well as alien visitations. But how many people have you heard of who have had experiences with ghosts, UFOs and Bigfoot? This week, we’re joined by Ed Roman. Ed is an award-winning singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Shelburn, Ontario, Canada. His plethora of experiences involving the paranormal span so many various different types, and once I heard he had all of these happen I just had to have him on the show.
Today’s guest is Lorna Adams, and she specializes in psychic readings for current topics, as well as future readings, and she can connect people with someone who has passed on. She also serves to connect people with their spirit guides, and she even gave me a personal reading during this interview. Some of that information involves people who are alive and well in my personal life today. For this reason, I have intentionally muted the audio when the real names of people who did not wish to be identified were spoken out of respect for their privacy. At the end of this episode, after my chat with Lorna, I’m going to be trying out a new segment to the show, so stick around after I’m done speaking with Lorna for something I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy.
Last week, you heard from San Diego Paranormal Eye about their recent investigation of the Sallie House in Atchison, Kansas, with some of the audio evidence they found. If you haven’t heard that episode, I highly recommend going back and listening after you hear this one. Today we are going to be concluding the Sallie House series with a very special interview of Debra and Tony Pickman. If you recall, they were the tenants of the house during the 1990’s when the TV show Sightings (among many others) first aired some of the paranormal phenomena they were experiencing, including Tony being scratched to the point of bleeding by unseen forces while the TV crews were filming.
This week on Deviatus, we continue with our multi-part series on the Sallie House, and we're joined by Nicole (far left) and Stan (middle) from San Diego Paranormal Eye (SDPE). In October of 2010, the team traveled to Atchison, Kansas to investigate the infamous location. They were met by Denise Pridemore of Pridemore Paranormal (Episodes 20 and 20.5) for a tour and found themselves among the restless spirits that reside there throughout their night of investigation.
This week on Deviatus, I'm happy to bring you a very special bonus episode. I initially thought I had stopped recording with Denise Pridemore after our main interview about the Sallie House, but I actually didn't. Our conversation lasted quite a lot longer, and after I learned about my error, I asked Denise for permission to post the remaining conversation. The information on this bonus episode is unscripted and unedited.
The Sallie House, if you haven’t heard of it yet, is rumored to host no less than 6 different spirits that influence visitors with visual manifestations, audio anomalies, feelings of dizziness and nausea, objects being cast across rooms, and in some cases, physical harm in the form of scratching and bruising, all of which our guest today, Denise Pridemore, has experienced. In 2015, the Sallie House was featured on an episode of Ghost Adventures.
This week on Deviatus, Andrew Peterson joins us from the website, Unknown Midwest. Andrew discusses some of the personal experiences he has had with the paranormal, as well as what led to him and his team starting up a website that covers all things paranormal from local legends and folklore, to ghosts and spirits, to your favorite cryptozoological mysteries.
According to Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, a hoax means to trick into believing or accepting as genuine something false and often preposterous. Today’s guest is Mike Bisch of Kentucky Special FX. Mike specializes in props and special effects for movies and other related entertainment, but he also admits that he has been hired specifically for the purpose of fooling paranormal investigators. When I first heard of this, I knew I had to get him on the show.
Our guest today is a photographer and researcher who claims to have developed a method for capturing ghosts and apparitions consistently on camera. He recently took a 2-year tour of Williamsburg, Virginia, site of the largest collection of 18th century buildings in the United States. His book, Haunted Historic Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia: With Breakthrough Ghost Photography shows 230 images of ghost photography with his narrative explanations from 43 various locations throughout Williamsburg. Tim Scullion joins us on this episode.

This week on Deviatus, I don't have a living, breathing, guest but you are going to hear voices other than my own from unexplained sources. Join me as I explain how a controversial piece of equipment called the SB7 Spirit Box works, and we'll listen to several audio clips that have been identified as potentially containing voices coming through the box. Notice, I say "potentially"!
This week, I'm interviewing someone you will be familiar with if you listened to Episode 9. Co-author of the book Haunted Hospitals, Eerie Tales about Hospitals, Sanatoriums and Other Institutions. Rhonda co-authored the book with our guest, Mark Leslie from EP 9, and brings her own stories to the novel. We explore Rhonda's background and interest in the paranormal, as well as what prompted her to partner with Mark to create this book.
When it comes to the search for Sasquatch, the foursome of Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot come to mind quickly. Cliff Barackman joins us today to discuss some of the experiences he's had filming for the show, as well as some lesser-known experiences while searching for Bigfoots and behind-the-scenes information you won't want to miss.
