Richard Syrett's Strange Planet


Jul 20, 2018

Dear Listener,
You can help me out by filling out this short survey:



Richard welcomes an amateur folklorist and chronicler of the strange to discuss the intense paranormal activity in Greene County, Pennsylvania, arguably the most haunted county in the United States. He describes Greene County residents' encounters with night howlers, lobster aliens, black blobs, mole things, ghostly apparitions, ufos, and more.

GUEST: Kevin Paul is the co-author of Haunted Hills and Hollows: What Lurks in Greene County, Pennsylvania? 

A descendant of some of the prominent first European families to settle what is now modern-day Greene County, Kevin was immersed at an early age in local folklore and its application to everyday life in rural southwestern Pennsylvania. His interest in studying the paranormal began when headlines about the Mothman sightings in Point Pleasant, West Virginia first appeared in local newspapers.

A graduate of West Virginia University, he has worked in sales, agricultural marketing, and conservation of natural resources. His farm background, interest in history, and study of the unexplained led to the collection of stories of high strangeness found in this book.

Currently he works to find ways to connect local farms with consumers. In his spare time, he enjoys relaxing with his wife, listening to big band music, reading, and taking leisurely drives on less traveled highways.
