James Koppert is fascinated with anything Fortean and is also part of the Yorkshire Coast Paranormal Investigations team who investigate reputed hauntings in the area.

The show has been running for around two months and is available on Amazon Alexa, Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts and is about to be available on Spotify as well.

The podcast has gained listenership from around the world with downloads across Britain, the USA, Canada as well as other non-English speaking countries in Europe.

The show’s format delivers the headlines of any Fortean events in the news in a professional way with a dose of humour.

James scours the news each day, gathering interesting stories and then recording the show.

James said: “I am a huge fan of Podcasts and I wanted one that simply told the week’s news of anything that is Fortean, things such as ghosts, poltergeists, UFO’s, cryptids and more, so I could keep abreast of what was happening globally.

“However, no matter how much I searched I couldn’t find one, so I decided to do it myself.

“I am hoping to create a community and to give everyone with an open mind something fun to listen to on the commute to work or while washing up.”
