A comedy podcast that eschews the nonsense of the paranormal community with critical thinking and shouting. Two comedians, voice of reason Ian Boldsworth and gullible believer Barry Dodds debate the supernatural, mysteries and conspiracy theories, in a quest to establish the truth from the fantasy.


The multi-award-winning-nominated ParaPod Podcast came to life in 2015, after Ian and Barry had argued about a haunted house (or house) on Ian’s radio show. The first series dealt with ghosts and hauntings, whilst series 2 and 3 addressed Mysteries and Conspiracy Theories respectively, with over 1.5 million downloads to date, a huge, growing fanbase and a movie currently filming. There was also a two-part special recorded at 30 East Drive, home of the world’s most violent poltergeist, which is not for the faint-hearted…

Chortle Comedy Awards nominated in 2016 and 2017, 2017 Midlands Comedy Awards winner and 2017 Ockham Award for excellence in skepticism nominated.

If you want to know the truth about the Enfield Haunting, the genetic history of the Chupacabra, the relevance of the Babadook, how Marilyn Monroe influenced the assassination of JFK, and why Ian is shaking his head right now as he types this list, all three series are available for free on itunes and soundcloud.


In 2017, Ian and Barry began filming The ParaPod Movie, a road trip campaign where they continue the debate whilst visiting some of the worlds most haunted locations.
