Interview with Ben Radford – Solving the Mystery of the Chupacabra

You can’t seem to turn on the television anymore without seeing a paranormal themed show propping up average joe’s as science-minded investigators.  Shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, along with Destination Truth and Fact or Faked have created a dozen seasons between them of doing just that.  The problem is, the cast members frequently use unsound scientific techniques because they generally just do not have a background in science or investigation.  And to top it off, they never actually seem to solve any mysteries.  Ben Radford, however, does.  With a degree in Psychology, and applying legitimate scientific methodologies, Radford has investigated and solved the 1997 Pokemon panic of Japan, the Santa Fe Courthouse Ghost, and The White Witch of Rose Hall, among others.  He is the managing editor of Skeptical Inquirer magazine and the “Bad Science” columnist at  He has published several books, most recently “Scientific Paranormal Investigation,” and “Tracking the Chupacabra: The Vampire Beast in Fact, Fiction, and Folklore” which offers a detailed history of the creature and claims to put the mystery to rest once and for all.  To learn more about Ben, check him out online at WWW.RADFORDBOOKS.COM
