In this episode of Paranormal Underground Radio, we talk with David Scott and John Stephens of Illinois Paranormal Research Association (IPRA). David is a full-time videographer and filmmaker in the Chicagoland area. He joined forces with John Stephens, and together they produce the hit online series Believe: An Online Paranormal Experience. Believe has had over a million and a half lifetime viewers and is growing everyday. The show is streamed on their Youtube channel:

David and John travel the country and release new videos almost every week. They try and discover and utilize new methods of capturing paranormal phenomena. David aims to change the way the world views ghost hunting by opening its eyes. He also strives to give his viewers an “experience” rather than simply watching a video.

David’s fascination with the paranormal began at a young age when witnessing a full-bodied apparition in his bedroom. He caught his first piece of evidence on accident while filming late at night inside Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Midlothian, Illinois. He witnessed a spirit walk between two tombstones with his own eyes. Upon reviewing footage, he found that he had recorded it on video. He became completely obsessed with documenting spirits. In just one year of capturing his first piece of evidence, he performed over 100 hundred investigations at different locations. Eventually, he began incorporating his knowledge of film with his passion for ghost hunting and created Believe.

John works for the city of Chicago. A city boy at heart, he is a strong, unmovable force. He is known for his fearless attitude and strong will. John is also a professional photographer. His passion is abstract street photography and apocalyptic themed photos. John met David while shooting at Manteno State Hospital late one evening. The two instantly bonded, sharing their love for abandoned art and things that go bump into the night. The two of them together serve as a perfect combination of brains and muscle … light and darkness.
