|Colin with Cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard|
Paranormal 101 is run by up and coming researcher of the strange, Colin Schneider. I met Colin during my appearance at this year's Dogman conference in Ohio. It's always impressive to see young people involved in the field, especially when they clearly demonstrate a passion for pursuing the weird.
Colin is making an effort to attend events, meet people who have been active in the field to ask their advice, and most impressively, Colin reads extensively in his area of study. Too often, new researchers rely on sitting and watching hours of reality television shows and falling under the misconception that they're getting an accurate idea of what it's like to investigate and explore the strange.
It's up to all of us who are veterans in the field to encourage the young up and coming researchers, as with everything else, the youth are the future and will be the ones who continue the quest for answers into the future.
Keep an eye on this young man, I suspect we'll be hearing much, much more from him in the years to come. And be sure to check out his blog.
