Brian Sterling-Vete Ph.D: BBC TV news veteran, TV Broadcaster, Guinness World Record Holder, and author of the highly acclaimed book:  Paranormal Investigation: The Black Book of Scientific Ghost Hunting and How to Investigate Paranormal Phenomena.
Brian has had a life-long interest in all aspects of the paranormal, while at the same time primarily thanks to his formal training in exercise science and because of his BBC TV News background, he tries to remain as neutral, balanced, scientific and objective as possible in his approach to all things paranormal.

Brian has participated in over 1000 investigations throughout the United States and in the United Kingdom and is a regular guest on the Dark Matter Digital Radio show about all things paranormal: “More Questions Than Answers” with Adrian Lee.

In 2017, he also accidently became part of what has been hailed by MUFON as “one of the most significant UFO sightings of recent times”.

Jason Semmens: focuses chiefly on beliefs in witchcraft and popular magic from the early modern, to the modern era; particularly at a regional level, as well as how belief in the supernatural world relates to early science.

Originally from West Cornwall, Jason is currently the Director of the Army Medical Services Museum, Ash Vale, Surrey. He is an independent researcher with Master of Arts degrees from the Universities of Exeter and Leicester.
His publications include The Cornish Witch-finder: William Henry Paynter and the Witchery, Ghosts, Charms and Folklore of Cornwall, and Tammy Blee’s Cabalistic Agency: Witchcraft and Popular Magic in History and Interpretation (forthcoming 2016) – along with numerous contributions to journals, including Folklore, Cornish Studies and the Journal for the Academic Study of Magic.
