Paul & Ben Eno
Radio Show Hosts, Lecturers and Authors
Paul & Ben Eno are best known as the father-son co-hosts of the CBS Radio and WOON 1240 Boston/Worcester/Providence show Behind the Paranormal, with an estimated 3 million listeners. But with a combined 55 years of experience as paranormal researchers, they are far more than talk-show hosts.
Paul Eno was one of the first paranormal investigators of the early 1970s, beginning while he was studying for the priesthood. His 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. He graduated from two seminaries, but 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 and the author of six books on the paranormal and two books on history.
Ben Eno joined his dad’s adventures in 2005 at the age of 13, demonstrating some unique insights and, at 16, becoming the youngest syndicated broadcaster in America. Ben is a sound expert and a graduate of Emerson College in Boston with a degree in audio engineering and sound design. Ben is co-author, with his dad, of “Behind the Paranormal: Everything You Know is Wrong” (Schiffer Publishing, 2016).

UFOs, Bigfoot and Orange Orbs
Ronny Le Blanc
Ronny Le Blanc is the author of Monsterland: Encounters With UFOs, Bigfoot and Orange Orbs. His new book is centered on the history of Bigfoot and UFOs in Massachusetts and focuses on the untold stories and experiences in and around the Leominster State Forest in Leominster Ma.
Ronny has had a lifelong interest in Crytozoology, science and topics of the strange. He started to look into sightings and encounters with UFOs, Bigfoot and Orange Orbs in his hometown. When he did they seemed to have taken notice of him as well.
Bill Penning and his wife Julie discovered six Sasquatch prints in the Leominster State Forest in 2010 and took a cast of one of them. His story was featured on the show Finding Bigfoot and in the book Monsterland.
After Bill's story hit local newspapers, blogs and Boston radio, people began to reach out to Bill with thier own stories and experiences. He has since uncovered more unreported local encounters in and around the area known as Monsterland.
