I also enjoy The Paracast. Not necessarily because of the hosts, although I do find their line of questioning and query to be a lot less gullible
than George Noory's who comes across a little too naive and readily acceptant of the bulk of the rampant BS that seems to be magnetically drawn to
Coast To Coast. In other words he's a nice guy on the air and appears to be afraid to offend and make an enemy which is respectible in a social
stance but does not apply in any field of science especially one as sketchy as the Paranormal field of study which is obviously rife with nuts and
wacks with no verifiable proof to back most of their claims.
With all of that said, the main reason I enjoy The Paracast is for the quality of the guests they have on such as Robert Hastings, Don Ecker, Jacques
Vallee, Greg Bishop, Dr. Bruce Maccabee, Curt Southerly, Jeff Ritzmann and Jeremy Vaeni.
Now Jeff and Jeremy have their own Podcast, Paratopia which has seemingly the same quality guests but sometimes the language factor can be a bit much
and sometimes it just comes across as blatant and gratuitous and I feel professionally that that can hinder the underlying discussion and study. That
is not to say that I do not enjoy it. It's just that at times it comes across as more entertainment and less substance and in this field I do not
want to be entertained as I take it very seriously.
I appreciate your stance as David can at times come across a bit brash and with a bit of braggadoccio but I do not let those elements otherwise hinder
the quality of information that generally comes from this program. All in all, unless you know of a better program, The Paracast consistently puts
out a fine mass of quality info as well as not being afraid to ferret out the hucksters and snake-oil scheisters that purvey this field.
I too enjoy the pursuit of separating "Signal" from "Noise".
My dos centavos,
