In this episode of Paranormal Underground Radio, we talk with Steve Parsons, co-founder of Para-Science. In 2012, The Wall Street Journal called Steve Parsons “The Gold Standard of Paranormal Investigators.” Steve is a unique paranormal investigator whose background, peer recognition, experience, and knowledge separate him from a domain full of pseudo-scientific amateur ghost hunters. He has hunted for ghosts since childhood and has been a full time investigator for more than 20 years. He is currently acknowledged by both peers and leading academic parapsychologists to be one of the best paranormal investigators in the UK.

He has been involved in many areas of psychical research and has developed and pioneered many new methods of investigating ghosts and haunting phenomena and he remains at the forefront of true scientific ghost hunting. His work on Infrasound and the paranormal led him to design and build specialist equipment to precisely measure & record Infrasound. Using new digital photographic techniques, he was the first person to finally demonstrate and prove that the much debated orb phenomenon has a mundane explanation.

Steve has contributed to, and participated in, numerous documentaries for broadcasters Worldwide including productions for The Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, Japanese TV and for both the BBC and other UK broadcasters.  In addition, he has worked as the paranormal investigator on hit TV shows Most Haunted and I’m Famous & Frightened, cleverly balancing the entertainment aspect of such shows with his highly technical & informative approach to investigations. Whilst hosting his own paranormal show for BBC radio Steve also makes regular expert contributions on radio stations throughout the UK and for broadcasters in the UK, USA & Australia. A regular contributor to the news media, books & magazines, his prolific work has featured and has been cited in many books, peer reviewed journals, as well as popular magazines and newspapers.

His forthright and no nonsense approach is well known throughout paranormal investigation circles and he has a hard won reputation for producing results. Steve is also currently studying for a parapsychology focussed Ph.D. on Infrasound as a possible cause for various haunting experiences.

Steve is co-founder of Para.Science, described by the respected Parapsychologist Dr. Ciarán O’Keeffe as “Undoubtedly the leading haunting investigation group in the world – Navigating haunting experiences in the real world is a nightmare, Para.Science however is the ultimate guide.”

In addition to his work with Para.Science, he is often asked to act as an independent adviser on many other investigations offering training, support and analysis of subsequent evidence. He is a Member of the Spontaneous Case Committee of The Society for Psychical Research and an Adviser to The Ghost Club.
