This week we lean back towards the world of ghost hunting and the paranormal. Paranormal investigator and author Mari Chastain (and her two Guinea pigs) join us to talk about everything wrong with the world of ghost hunting and the Paranormal. We talk conventions, meet ups, Parapolitics, skepticism and people who are just a bit too wrapped up in everything.

A bit about Mari.


AboutMari (Mary) Chastain was born and raised in Southern Oregon. At the age of 19 that she moved to the East Coast where she currently resides.

As a child she loved everything about the paranormal and mysteries of the unknown. She would bring home every book on true stories of hauntings, the Bermuda Triangle, UFO’s and Cryptids that she could get her hands on. She used to scare herself so much with these books that she would be terrified to go to sleep at night. Her mom forbade her from bringing the books home anymore so she made due with sitting in her elementary school library and reading there.

Mari remembers some of the silly rituals she had as a child to avoid being attacked by ghosts and monsters. She never walked up to her bed at night, rather would take a running leap from the edge of her room so that her feet weren’t exposed to any ghostly, ghoulish, hands reaching out from under the bed (this ritual wasn’t needed during the day time). When sleeping all stuffed animals had to be under the covers with her so that the ghosts wouldn’t steel them. When under the covers they would protect her, but for some reason wouldn’t be able to if they were outside of her blankets.

Decades later Mari became a Ghost Hunter. She fell in love with Ghost Hunting and never turned back. She has investigated dozens of locations with several ghost hunting groups throughout the years. This has allowed her to create a vast network of friends within the field, all of whom are valuable resource for knowledge as well as some of the best friends she has ever kept in her company. It is with several of these friends that Mari hunts with in her current group, MD Paranormal.

Mari combined her love of the paranormal with her desire to share something special with her niece and nephews and came up with the idea for Doodlebug and Laser; Ghost Hunters. Doodlebug and Laser are her real puppies and their personalities are reflected in these characters.

Episode 105 Curses And Soothsayers. Welcome back and happy 2014!

In this week’s show We sit down for a impromptu chat about Roman Curse Tablets. This leads us on a conversation to how curses work, Soothsayers and 10 crazy sports team curses. We bounce all over but it’s a fun and interesting show.



Well it’s been a fun year for P.A. We cracked 100 episodes and did some really cool shows. As always at this time of year, we release our “behind the scenes” show of the things that get left out or are dropped at the very end of the episodes. This is kind of our way of saying thank you to all our loyal fans who have stuck with us every show. Yes we take what we do serious but not so serious that we can’t have a good laugh at ourselves. As always this is what goes on “When the microphones are off” or are just to screwed up to get past Roejens high standards of what our show should be . This is the show where we can laugh at what we have done with everyone else. The show where mistakes and stupidity take center stage.

We can never say it enough to you guys, Thank you all for showing up every week and listening to us. Thank you all for being fans of what we do and “Getting it”.  We do this because we know you’re out there and we know your listening. We do this because we love what we do and we love you people.

Thank you all. See you in 2014
