Exploring the Unexplained

History, belief, and folklore combine to create paranormal legends that challenge what we know about how the universe works. But are these legends more than just stories? What can we learn about ourselves in exploring the unexplained? Meet Jeff Belanger, the ultimate paranormal insider, and host of the New England Legends series on PBS.

There's a relationship between ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot, strange monsters, ancient mysteries, and other bizarre phenomena. Through legend tripping we experience a path to our past, a connection with our fellow human beings in our present, and a way to ponder our own inevitable future. Though no one can explain exactly how it all works, few can match Jeff's ability to bring the odd out of the fringe and into our living rooms and near our office water coolers.

Belanger's approach is fun and informative. He brings a lot of personality and knowledge to his work. He's the author of over a dozen books that have been published in six languages, the Emmy-nominated host, producer, and writer of New England Legends on PBS, the writer and researcher for the Ghost Adventures show on the Travel Channel, the host of the widely popular Web and cable talk show 30 Odd Minutes, he's a sought-after lecturer who speaks at dozens of events per year for audiences big and small, and he's a recognized media personality appearing on hundreds of radio and television programs and networks worldwide including: The History Channel, The Travel Channel, Biography, PBS, Living TV (UK), The Maury Show, The CBS News Early Show and Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood, National Public Radio, The BBC, Australian Radio Network, Coast to Coast AM, and The 'X' Zone.
