Coast to Coast AM

George Knapp was joined by Fortean researcher Nick Redfern
for a discussion on paranormal hot spots that can be found across the globe. “I think there is evidence that there are places that do act like a magnet or a doorway” for strange phenomena, he argued. As such, Redfern explained that his research focused on examining isolated areas where multiple facets of the paranormal have been reported over considerable lengths of time. The town of Jefferson, Texas, Loch Ness in Scotland and Mount Shasta in California were some of these paranormal hot spots identified by Redfern. Over the course of the evening, he also shared his thoughts on the nature of mysteries like Bigfoot, Men in Black, and ghosts.

Devil’s Gate Dam in southern California was one paranormal hot spot where, Redfern observed, “there’s nothing positive about any of the weirdness that’s gone on there.” Located a few miles from Los Angeles, the canyon was a favorite haunt of notorious rocket scientist and occultist Jack Parsons, who was said to have performed arcane rituals there. Additionally, the area is home to a bridge where “in less than a century, more than 100 people have thrown themselves off to their death in the river bed below,” causing the landmark to be known by locals as “suicide bridge.” Redfern also noted that, in the 1950’s, the location was the site of a series of grisly child killings. In modern times, Redfern said, there have been reports of a “winged humanoid-type creature” in the area.

Another location, detailed by Redfern, was a forest called Cannock Chase in the UK, which he called “a definitive window area” for paranormal activity. According to him, the area has been the site of UFO reports, abductions, and alien contact encounters as well as an abundance of sightings of “big cats” and “ghostly black dogs.” Furthermore, Redfern revealed that, in 2007, several credible witnesses reported seeing a werewolf-like creature near an old cemetery in the woods. Appearing at first to merely be a large, out of place wolf, Redfern said that witnesses who glimpsed the creature reported that, once the beast saw them, “it would rise up onto its hind legs” and swiftly run off into the forest on two feet.
