MEDIA ALERT: Science Channel, Friday, August 21, 2020, 6:00-7:00PM EDT.

We will again be appearing on TV to discuss a few of the many myths, marvels and mysteries of SHC - Spontaneous Human Combustion aka Sudden Human Cremation - as ScienceChannel reruns this Friday our program in its excellent series "The Unexplained Files." Tune in, watch exert first-responders and an arson investigator attest to the oddity of SHC and other experts attempt to explain it all away, decide whether a man who says his body twice burst into flame and the witness who says he saw it happen are credible, and boost the ratings!

ScienceChannel will re-air the episode (S1E4) of its superb series "The Unexplained Files" that examines two recent examples of the phenomenon of Spontaneous Human Combustion -- aka Sudden Human Cremation: a classic case in Oklahoma in 2013 and the case in Vermont of a Purple Heart recipient who says he twice survived partial SHC. We appear as the advocate for SHC and demonstrate why the explain-away of "the wick effect" promulgated by spon-com debunkers does not work; a British researcher offers his theory that acetone is the solution (so to speak). Tune in and decide for yourself.





"Paranormal Caught on Camera" episode at 10-11PM ESTon May 17, 2020 - think this was the original airing of this episode - titled "Screams of Terror..." a segment about an Arkansas father/son walking in woodland, father filming son and then capturing roar-and-grunt sounds from something moving in the underbrush, ending w/ what appears (ever so briefly, because this program chop-cut edits much of the submitted footage) to be a humanoid dark creature behind a tree trunk. Footage appears quite genuine. Didn't catch the name of the gentleman. Contact the show for details(?) at submitparanormal@gmail.com




ScienceChannel is rerunning our most recent program for them. Thursday, 5/14/2020, 6-7AM EST (our segment is actually 6:30-7:00AM).

ScienceChannel is doing another marathon of "The Unexplained Files" on this date. And again, telecasting the episode we did for this wonderful series that deals with multiple cases of - gasp! - Spontaneous Human Combustion. Finally, a civilized time slot for a rerun. Both fatal and survived cases are documented - not that the debunkers and naysayers will give any credence to the cases presented but for those with true critical thinking skills, you'll have much to ponder. (This episode was also telecast on Friday, February 21, 2020, in the same time slot.)


Can be viewed online live too, at ScienceChannel.com during the on-air broadcast.



"The Unexplained Files" examines the phenomenon of Spontaneous Human Combustion both fatal and, yes, survived with Larry E Arnold, director of ParaScience International, documenting for the first time on national TV the death of Danny Vanzandt in Oklahoma and the witnessed inflaming of survivor Frank Baker.
