Paul Eno

@ Behind the Paranormal

“Mimics” – creatures pretending to be other creatures – are well known in nature. But what about in para-nature? Do ETs, cryptids, ghosts, demons, spirit guides and other beings of high strangeness really fit the labels we put on them? In this program, never presented before, researcher and author Paul Eno takes us back over 53 years of his own cases to examine the question WHAT ARE WE REALLY DEALING WITH. And finally: Are we ourselves mimics?

Now celebrating 50 years in paranormal research, Paul Eno is one of the world’s most experienced and controversial supernatural adventurers. One of the first ghost investigators of the early 1970s, beginning while he was studying for the priesthood, his theories and methods are now shaking the paranormal world to its core. Paul’s early mentors included parapsychology pioneer Dr. Louisa Rhine, Fr. John J. Nicola S.J. (technical advisor for the film The Exorcist) and legendary, first-generation ghost hunters Ed & Lorraine Warren (of The Conjuring fame).

Paul graduated from two seminaries but, in 1977, was expelled from a third because of his paranormal work with less than two years to go before ordination. He ended up as an award-winning New England journalist, including six years as a news editor at The Providence Journal. A popular Fate Magazine author in the 1980s and 1990s, Paul has written numerous articles, and co-authored or contributed to five other books with authors Brad Steiger, Timothy Green Beckley, Tim Swartz and others. He is the author of eight books on the paranormal and two on history. Two of his earlier works (Faces at the Window: First-Hand Accounts of the Paranormal in Southern New England, New River Press, 1998; and Footsteps in the Attic: More First-Hand Accounts of the Paranormal in New England, New River Press, 2002) are already considered classics of paranormal literature.

Two titles were co-authored with his son, colleague and radio co-host, Ben Eno (Behind the Paranormal: Everything You Know is Wrong, Schiffer Books, 2016; and Behind the Paranormal 2: Bigfoot, Mothman and Monsters you Never Heard Of, Barking Cat Books, 2017).

Paul’s latest book is Dancing Past the Graveyard: Poltergeists, Parasites, Parallel Worlds and God, Red Feather, 2019. The next, to appear in 2021 and co-authored with Ben, is Behind the Paranormal 3: Uneasy Skies, featuring their own UFO encounters and those of their most prominent radio guests.

Several of Paul’s cases have made headlines around the world, including the Bridgeport poltergeist outbreak of 1974 and the ongoing Litchfield County (Conn.) paranormal flap. Paul has appeared on the History, Discovery and Travel Channels, and he and Ben have lectured all over America and in Europe.

Along with Ben, Paul has co-hosted the CBS Radio (2009-2014) and WOON 1240 AM/99.3 FM Boston/Worcester/Providence Sunday destination show “Behind the Paranormal with Paul & Ben Eno” for nearly 13 years. The show has an estimated three million listeners in 60 counties.
