I started the Malliard Report on May 27, 2011 and, with the third anniversary quickly approaching, I thought I would take this time to talk about the history of the report, where it is now, and where I hope to go with it in the future.
As most of my readers and listeners know, I have a background in Paranormal Investigating. I have done close to 100 private investigations. The Malliard Report was started because of a passion for the truth and the mysteries of the unknown, hoping to someday find some answers. I interview guests from all walks of life, from Paranormal Investigators to Mediums and Psychics, across the board to Authors and Scientists. There hasn’t been a guest or topic to date that I have found to be taboo. I tackle each interview with an open mind and my loyal listeners appreciate the wide range of topics that I address. If I had to use three words to describe the Malliard Report they would be live, fast and truthful.
As with many projects in life, the Malliard Report was a slow go at first, one network and probably just as many listeners, but three years later, I am on thirty one different networks including am/FM stations, in the top 1000 on Stitcher, and have helped forge many lasting friendships between my listeners through social media with a group called the Quackrew, and those relationships are probably my best reward.
I am constantly pushing full steam ahead, notebook and pen in hand, with new ideas flowing like a tsunami. A workaholic? Perhaps. Passionate about putting forward the best possible show I can? Definitely, but there is another project on my horizon called Paranormal Standards. I felt with the popularity of paranormal investigating growing at a fast pace, it was time to have the community come together, not in unity, but from a place of procedural integrity, for new investigators to have a place to turn to for advice, rather than thinking they can learn all they need to know from a few staged and edited television series. I am hoping that members of our paranormal community will join me in making Paranormal Standards part of the norm when it comes to holding investigations. So, please join me on Twitter @ParaStandards and let’s start an open and frank discussion about fixing the wrongs within the field.
What’s next for the Malliard Report, will I do more than one show per week, will I do a two hour show? To find out, keep listening and until next time… Keep Quacking!
