One of the smartest shows on the paranormal

By sweatyNready69 - Jun 20 2019
Read more
The host Alex Tsakaris really does his homework and digs into the data on some of the hardest and most mysterious subjects out there — the nature of conciousness, near death experience, the ufo phenomenon, and how other flavors of the paranormal might just separate fingers to the hand that is objective reality. Alex brings on top quality guests, often highly pedigreed and educated academics in the subjects of physics, anthropology, medicine, psychology, and more. And while Alex admittedly abandons softball questions for sometimes antagonistic ones, he really moves the dialogue forward and brings out the best of the discussion. Highly highly recommend. The more I listened the more I’ve come to enjoy.

These reviews demonstrate exactly why we need shows like this. Attacking the interviewer without actually dealing with the data. The “interruptions” are to the point and take the conversations deeper. The nature of negative comments are just supporting one of the premises of the show. This show has been tremendously helpful in helping with learning how to talk about these issues with a scientific mindset and allowed me the comfort of knowing that their are others out there thinking about these things after having my own supernaturale experience. (although ultimately still just normal extended consciousness).
