Paul and Ben Eno are the father-son co-hosts of the CBS Radio and WOON 1240 AM/99.5 FM Boston/Worcester/Providence Sunday destination show “Behind the Paranormal with Paul & Ben Eno,” which is in its 15th year on the air and has an estimated 3 million listeners.
With combined experience of nearly 70 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.
Paul serves on the Experiencer Resource Team of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and on the Research Committee of the Consciousness and Contact Research Institute (CCRI). Ben serves on the CCRI’s Advisory Board.
They are joint authors of Behind the Paranormal: Everything You Know is Wrong (Schiffer Publishing, 2016), Behind the Paranormal 2: Bigfoot, Mothman and Monsters You Never Heard Of (Barking Cat Books, 2017), and the forthcoming Behind the Paranormal 3: Uneasy Skies. Paul is the author or co-author of more than 12 other books on paranormal and historical subjects. His latest title, Dancing Past the Graveyard: Poltergeists, Parasites, Parallel Worlds and God was released by Red Feather Books in 2019.
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 journalist, including six years as a news editor at The Providence Journal.
Paul has appeared on the History, Discovery and Travel Channels, in a number of YouTube productions and on countless international radio shows.
BEN, a 2014 graduate of Boston’s Emerson College, is Paul’s 30-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.
When CBS Radio began carrying ‘Behind the Paranormal with Paul & Ben Eno’ in 2009, Ben became the youngest syndicated talk show host in America. As his involvement with radio expanded during his college years, he was a popular DJ on WERS 88.9 FM in Boston, from which he proposed (successfully) to his high school sweetheart in 2015.
Along with paranormal investigation and writing projects with his dad, Ben works in radio, on independent film sets, and as an assistant project manager for a major commercial builder in the Boston area.
He has appeared on the Travel Channel and in a number of YouTube productions, and radio shows.
Paul and Ben have lectured all over America and in Europe. In 2013, they starred in “The Devil’s Hour,” a featurette from Warner Brothers that accompanied release on “The Conjuring.” They also appeared in the Travel Channel’s premiere “Shock Docs” production: “Devil’s Road: The True Story of Ed & Lorraine Warren” in 2020.
