About Planet Weird

Planet Weird is the hub for some of the most groundbreaking projects in the realm of the paranormal. For nearly two decades, Greg and Dana have traversed North America on hundreds of paranormal adventures in search of everything from legendary monsters to mind bending psychic phenomena, covering everything in between. They've come face-to-face with Bigfoot deep in the hills of West Virginia, successfully instigated an alien abduction on North Carolina's mysterious Brown Mountain, and grappled with angry ghosts in a violently-cursed town in rural Pennsylvania, to name just a few adventures.

Planet Weird was created out of a combined 30+ years of these extraordinary investigations and their desire to share those experiences across a variety of formats.
