About The Paranormal View
The Paranormal View is a very relaxed, round table style talk show which focuses on bringing together experts, enthusiasts, and listeners with varied viewpoints. Instead of focusing strictly on ghostly phenomena, the show’s hosts, Henry,Geoff, Barbara and Kat, strive to provide listeners the best information available on an assortment of paranormal topics including cryptozoology, psychic abilities, UFOs, ancient mysteries, and more.
Henry Foister’s love of paranormal exploration came, like many others, from the contagious excitement of the “Ghost Hunters” series on Sci-Fi. He was thrown in with experienced researchers from the KAPS team and several paranormal celebrities during his first investigation at the Sorg Opera House in Middletown, Ohio. Henry was able to learn many valuable lessons about field work first-hand, and has since earned a reputation of being a curious yet analytical investigator.
Henry is a husband, father, and grandfather. He is looking forward to full-time retirement to dedicate more of his days to paranormal research and to sharing what he learns with others. Henry lives with his wife in Trenton, Ohio.
