Paul and Ben Eno are best known as the father-son co-hosts of the CBS Radio and WOON 1240 AM Boston/Worcester/Providence Sunday destination show “Behind the Paranormal with Paul & Ben Eno,” which just celebrated its 10th year on the air and has an estimated 3 million listeners.
With combined experience of over 60 years in paranormal research, these two supernatural adventurers are among the pioneers of the theory that UFOs, ghost and poltergeist phenomena, cryptids and other areas of the paranormal are closely connected. They are joint authors of Behind the Paranormal: Everything You Know is Wrong (Schiffer Publishing, 2016) and Behind the Paranormal 2: Bigfoot, Mothman and Monsters You Never Heard Of (Barking Cat Books, 2017). Paul is the author or co-author of more than 10 other books on paranormal and historical subjects.
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. Paul graduated from two seminaries but was expelled from a third because of his paranormal work with less than two years to go before ordination. Holder of a rare Ph.B degree in philosophy, he ended up as an award-winning New England newspaper and magazine journalist, including six years as a news editor at The Providence Journal.
BEN ENO, a 2014 graduate of Boston’s Emerson College, is Paul’s 26-year-old son, co-host and “partner in the paranormal,” having joined his dad’s adventures at the age of 13. He holds a bachelor’s degree in sound design and audio post-production. He works in film and interior design.
Paul has appeared on the History, Discovery and Travel Channels, and he and Ben have lectured all over America and in Europe.
The Eno’s topic:
This year’s subject will be “Extreme UFO Encounters in the Northeast.” This will include the first (except for the TV feed on our May 26 show) public showing of the video I captured of a dramatic UFO sighting by five of us while investigating the Pennsylvania Triangle on the night of May 23/24 this year. I presume we’re doing the radio show live with the speaker panel on Sunday noon to one, as we always do.
