Today I’m welcoming Aaron Hunter, producer of the hit show, Real Paranormal Activity – The Podcast. Thank you, Aaron for stopping by!
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
“Sure, my profession is in the IT Industry and I support Financial Solution Software that have been developed “in house” at these tech companies in Chicago. I live in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. I have been here for 12 years. It’s funny about life and it’s true how the saying goes, what you do in college may not end up what you’ll be doing. I wanted to be an artist and a writer of fine novels! So, my first two years I took a lot of artsy courses. Including writing and ancient history. Then I started taking more history courses. I was fascinated about our human history! Now at this point I started to doubt my interest in writing fine novels and painting exotic beautiful women! At this point though I was playing a lot of video games. You see, my father was a Systems Engineer with IBM and he bought me my first computer back in the mid 80’s around 13 (dating myself). And that is when I started programming in Basic. I was enjoying this machine. So, back to college and my gaming habits. I soon realized that I could combine my love for being an artist and technology! Become a 3D Computer Animator! And also at the same time I didn’t think a scholar with a background in history would allow me to go where I wanted to go in the world. Third year I made my major to be 3D Animation and Graphics. This was hot stuff back then like it is now! Everyone wanted to make the next hot game or make movies. I didn’t care. I would do either, because this stuff was fun. One thing….. colleges never tell you HOW to get the job. So, after graduation I found out us computer graphic guys needed Agents. And at that time there were very little animation houses. Most were out in California. Like Electronic Arts. AND seeing as you didn’t have a good professional portfolio you normally were paid much lower wages, shorter contract time and did simple modeling, texturing or made a ball bounce. Just really amateur. And of course the pros that has been in it for years that had the six figure salary and longer contracts were not just going to move out of your way. So, I think it was three years that went by and I was working temp jobs. And then I saw this entry level tech position at this large corporation. I applied and the interview went well. They liked my background in computers and early programming. I got it! Not a bad starting salary either for Chicago area. And I was to learn their new piece of software that they were developing. I was housed at their corporate office and rubbing shoulders with the VPs and President. They had classrooms that I went to learn the software. And that’s how my dream died and started my new career! Funny how things work out. I liked the money and benefits though. Oh, I’m a Foody. I like trying new foods. I really like food from India and Poland. I also love to travel and just get lost. Movies are one of my vices as well.”
Why the paranormal and what was the driving force behind creating your own show, Real Paranormal Activity – The Podcast?
“Well, here’s long story number two! Let’s make this clear. I never had any belief in the paranormal or supernatural due to my background, obviously. It doesn’t make sense. Things moving around in thin air. Wizardry, Sorcery and magical stuff, man! So, I met this woman and it was a long distance relationship. I would fly out of Chicago to Minneapolis and vise versa. Round trip was only $114 and it was an hour trip one way. Very doable, adventurous and fun! We had a great time! And she rented this two-story Farmhouse out in the country. Very peaceful that sat on a large lot of land. It has this large fast flowing creek or small river going through the front lawn. You could fish in it. And a wooded area behind the home. I saw the stars for the first time in many years. I was always in populated areas if I traveled for business. I was also amazed at how freaking dark it was out there! So, when I visited and if we stayed at her place (sometimes we would travel to a festival nearby) it would be over the weekend or sometimes I would take a couple days off and stay for four days. All wood floors. It had a big unfinished basement and with these dark Cherry Wood paneled walls, beautiful! The thing is when the first few times I started coming over she began to tell me these “stories” about the house. She’s lived there for around a year and half before I came around. Anywhere from a male voice to footsteps upstairs to one of the owners seeing what they thought was their dead brother walking behind the house. At first it concerned me. She’s nuts! Then I just blew it off, because she is more educated than I am with her Masters. She was in the Army and is now a state agent. A Cop. So, there might be some truth to these things or she is doing a psych test on me. Cops are crafty that way! I ended up getting laid-off in 2010 with this whole financial turmoil the country was in and decided to stay out there while looking for a job. Never stayed out there for as long as I was about to. After about three-weeks to a month “things” started happening. Just loud noises in the middle of the day or at night. One night there was a “crash” downstairs so I went to look and door to the home was wide open! I bolt lock that thing every night, because it’s more dangerous out there than in Chicago. In Chicago I’m in a secure building in a good area. People everywhere. Out there, however it’s a different story. So, I’m doing these experiments to try to figure out what’s going on. And it seemed to be escalating! At one point (even though I had no proof) I thought that perhaps this house was unstable. Ha! I think it was the fourth event that really shook me and I left the next day to speak with my father about it and I wasn’t about to stay there. I’ll leave it at that, because there is a lot going on here. I tell the whole story in great detail at the show site. It’s Episode 42 and it’s two and a half hours long. We’ll get to all that information further down. So, I became FASCINATED with the paranormal. In Sept of that year (2010) I went back to Chicago, because I landed a job. And every since 2010 I’ve been reading and researching everything I can get my hands on about the paranormal. I already knew there is a lot of false claims, but I’m pretty good at catching them. I’m an academic. I don’t go looking for these things. I just research. And man there are some nasty stuff you can find, but they are pretty rare. There is a reason people don’t see these things or die without ever experiencing anything. My girlfriend and I split in 2012 and I continued on. I began getting into these files called “Podcasts”. Basically a MP3 file, but Apple started to provide a way for people to submit their own MP3 file and sell them or give them away. What happened is people just bought a mic and started recording what they wanted to talk about and also other things. Homemade Radio Shows! In January of 2015 my tech friend Brit and I sat down and started talking about making a little info type of show on the paranormal. Perhaps, ask people if they had any experiences and if they would send them in for us to read. So, we bought some equipment. Got the website established. Got some stock music. And KA-POW! Real Paranormal Activity – The Podcast (RPA) was born! We are now in Season 2!”
What are your beliefs regarding the paranormal?
“I answered some of that on the above question, but I firmly believe people won’t talk about it because it’s crazy stuff and they can’t even prove what they experienced or thought they experienced. And that’s one of the main reasons of the creation of the show. To provide an outlet for people. To provide answers. To provide a “family” of sorts. To provide perhaps some sort of therapy? So, we’ve had a GREAT response with the show’s fans. They ask for help. And sometimes thanks us for reading their story, because it helped them. I also believe as I said in the previous question you may not find anything. And most things can be debunked, but then again…. some things DO happen. I know that myself. If I never sat foot into that crazy house I would still be laughing at people instead of trying to provide an outlet. Be the solution not the problem, man! I do laugh at the paranormal shows. It’s entertainment. One thing. I would have the lights on to get clear video and to see where you’re going. Trust me. These things are not scared of lights. Things happened at the house during the day. And if they are afraid of light. We’ll there’s your solution. Always have light inside your home. Ha!”
What kind of guests do you have on your show?
“Wow, good question. All kinds from professionals to non-professionals that have experienced something. We have Psychics, Mediums, Empaths, Investigators, Authors and even a guy who produced a paranormal movie. And you have your own episode on the show as well. Episode 18 where we speak about your book. I had fun by the way. You were very easy to speak to!”
Care to tell us one of the scariest ghost stories shared by a guest?
“In another interview I was asked that and it stumped me, because I’ve been reading stories and books since 2010. So many! Since then I thought about it just in case I was asked that question again. There was this family that moved into a Farmhouse. What’s with these farmhouses? Anyway it was the father, mother and daughter. And that first night the daughter woke up to a scream and talking from her parent’s room. The next day she asked about it and nothing much was said. The daughter always had an odd feeling about her parents room. As time went on the parents divorced and the daughter went with her mother to live. The father stayed in the house. When the daughter would stay at her father’s house. She would stay at her parents old bedroom. She felt scared and moody while in that room. Finally she decided to ask her mother what happened that first night when they stayed there. Her mother told her she woke up and felt being watched. Moonlight streamed in through the windows. She glanced around the room. Something was wrong. Her eyes fell upon the open closet door. Inside the closet…swinging back and forth was a hanging man! Neck broken to the side with these eyes glaring right at her. She then screamed and woke-up her husband. She told her husband what she saw and they soon started arguing, because the father didn’t believe in such junk!
Where can listeners find your show, Real Paranormal Activity – The Podcast? And what is the show’s schedule?
“Oh man, we’re all over the place now! Two places we would recommend. First, use your mobile device and use a podcast app. Then do a search for us and then you can download the episodes for free. And listen to us anywhere! Second, go to the website at www.RealParanormalActivity.com . We release a new episode every Monday! And also throughout the year we do bonus episodes for Christmas, Halloween or when I may mess up and be late for a Monday release. So, I do my best to make it up to you guys. Because without our audience we wouldn’t have a show. Just talking to air. And we’re flattered that we even have fans, because we’re no one. Thanks for listening guys!”
What would you say to a non-believer if they were to question you about the paranormal?
“That’s good! You should question me, because what I just told you is crazy. And you questioning me means that you are a logical and critical thinker!”
What’s next for Aaron Hunter and Real Paranormal Activity – The Podcast?
“Secret plans to take out the competition! No, we are expanding onto other networks and into other market places. So, we will continue to do that and grow the show. Brit and I have talked about adding a new section to the show. Something a little different. Nothing will change with the current show. Just additional content. I also spoke about a idea that I think is really amazing back earlier this year. And I said I thought it would be implemented sometime in March. That time has passed and life keeps us busy. We are still very interested in doing it, but need to speak with another party. I think it’s something no other podcast has done and we like that. Don’t keep doing the same stuff guys! Be creative and take the complaints. People will come around if it’s truly a good idea. And there is a reason I’m being very vague. Don’t want to give away too much.”
Any words of wisdom you’d care to share?

From my simple opinion i bilieve that the what you call paranormal or spirits experts thies days are far a way from the reality of the spirit world,they are mixing between things they red (or took it from traditional or cultural foloklor recources or from fairy tailes )and the reality behind the nature of thies entities,it is hard to meet one real human expert in paranormal field thies days,what they doing here is just manupolating (twisting)thier statments according to the event story they already knew fromthier victims,thier is nothing new they could add to this field or to the story in thier explination, and they fail to identifay the nature of the entity or its motives,first of all thier is nothing called human spirit(remember my words carfully) this is the most horrible mistake all human experts fall in to, thats whay they cant explaine whay or how could thies spirit do such horrible actions and start giving rong judgments or going around to prove the human spirit theory(and they can say what they feel and no one can prove the oppisit becz no one can see or touch paranormal activity) and this will lead for sure for big failer to heal or to get red of this entity beside that the victim will suffer more till he realize that he is dealing with some thing more evil and worst that just angry human spirit,thier is no human spirit coming back or stick in our world or lost the way back to heaven,actualy it is demonic entity,as a human you cant explaine some thing you cant see or touch and from here the problems start with hundrets of theories and lots of explinations, in fact this entities is kind of earthly demon and its name is Jinn,jinn can be verry clever in specific limits and can emitate living or dead person it can read your mind and feed on your fear,the Jinn follow specific steps befor it attack or show it self they follow levels befor reaching the red line,Jinn is not pure devil, i mean it is not from the devil race maybe similar in some aspects but not the same in its reaction and symptoms, the western cultur use the word demon as a generalising evry entity comes from the satan ,,,,,so the demon could be devil or satanic entity but this is also rong way of seeing things,in the old samatic languages there is more explination like shaytan= satan, devil=Eblis also the devil have an older angelic name wich it Azazeel ,so i guess demon should belong to the Jinn kind, jinn is not the devil though they match or meet in some elemints they are like cousins ,jinn have also different tribes and forms,i can know it from the haunting action or symptoms becz each jinn tribs or kind have in general special way of haunting, effects and influences changes according to the kind of the entity or kind of magic made against this or that human,also thier is the mixed race wich it is the result of pure satan mixed with pure jinn this kind could be agressive and evil as well,Jinn have kings and leaders like the stars ones ,but some earthly kind are lost alone and could try to inter the human dimension and could serve the devil policy of destroying the human race through magic or bad things or sicknes oe politics,many things humans do without knowledge could open this doors but with less knowledge about what we deeling with and with such egnorant paranormal experts and such lacking knowledge we would axpect more damage and less human effectivity against thies entities becz thies entitites using this situation to get stronger and more controll of its victims, actually i healed many cases from hard deseases like cancer or mantal problems or nervs illness and i found that thies demonic entitties was the reason, by using the right knowledge and the right wepon you can not just get red of the entity but also heal your body and soul, Jinn or Satanic entities can cause humans to bilieve what they want could also cause unreal events or dreams or create unreal reality ,and could play with your brain or cause you to do evil thing by controlling your thoughts specialy if this entity posses you, beside that we have few kinds of Jinn wich it lives among humans and could be sextualy motivated or more attached to humans emotions or cause specialy women sextual disorder,if you know the nature of the jinn you would understand whay im saying that,the jinn nature some how is low radiation waves of high or low electromignatic waves go through objects and bodies, paranormal experts and spiritual healers or gohst hunters should be verry carfull ,you could be hurted badly in different ways or possesed or mantaly influenced,it is long thema need alot of writing and discusions but if you need any edvice or assist or help im ready to help you in any possible way.
One of the most famouse and evil demons exsisted since long time called ZOZO
ZOZO is a high level satanic demon , ZOZO has been linked to murders and suicides throughout the world. He comes through Ouija sessions under many names and begins working on the mental stability of its users searching I think for vulnerable victims.
Ouija is his door to you please be carfull,for any assist just ask the right experts you trust.
Demonic sexual assault,how to avaoid and to heal
All what i saw and red about Succubus and inccubus is nearly the same and
each paranormal expert give us his theory without he can prove it or show his info
recources,and most of what called demonoligst or psychic
or meduims or healers dont know more than 10% of what they are talking
about and thier explinations could make the situation more wors even .
Pepole think that by coppying books written from someone calling him self expert or just reading one
artickle from the net about demons will make them experts,but they are doing fatal mistake by spreading this fals knowledges .
Thier is nothing called
sexuale demons (succubos,incubos) in the way humans understand it, actualy we have the major devil ( Azazeel or satan) the father of all devils wich you humans in the west call them demons(from demonay in the old latinic culture)
call him what ever you want he have different names, so devils are actualy
the kids of the satan spiritualy ,they put them selves under his
authority and they serve him and his goals,but the jinn exsisted
befor him.most of them followed the satan after the seperation between him and God and they become evil jinn and evil jinn is similar to demons(they turn to demonic entitites) in many ways,and both the devils and the evil jinn (demons) glorify the devil for he being rebellion against God,Jinn are the
cuisines of the satan in blood (in thier nature) but the satan have
also his own sons from his own blood,and also thier is the mixed race between
the satan kids and the evil jinn race,all this creat different types of devils and demons
with different skills,but from the pure jinn type you can find some
bilievers ,some jinn could be christian or muslims or even jew,the
biliever type of djinn are the best from the wors but still they are
dangerouse if you miss with them or invite them they would hurt you, it depend how you deal with them,but they are still easier to get red of
I can know the type of the entity from its symptoms
and actions it cause, any way,the bilievers type are not under the law of the the
satan and have different kind of needs and motivations ,,,,,,,,,,so they need different way of cleansing,going back for our subject,evry demonic entity (mixed kind or pure devil) could be seducer and
could misuse your emotions or lust to attack mantaly or sexualy his victim.
Devils could feel and smell human wishes or needs or thoughts or memories specialy if the person are lonly,weak,sad or unprotected spiritualy.
Demons generaly go through stages or steps of possesion,it let you first go more deeper in to your lust or sadness or fear
till you cant controll it, or it could appear as a sexy dreams if he want to posses you or controll your emotions or he
might assault you in your dreams as in nightmares..he might make it good in the bigining so you open your
feelings more for it ,to enjoy it more to trust him more or to enjoy your emotions more so he will controll you more stronger mantaly and emotionaly and then break or controll your will, and this will make him more demanding and more possesive.
The process well go through steps till he reach in the end to the compleat
demons or jinn cant show or posses just easly or suddenly they need alot of energy to enter human dimension or body so dont ignore the signes.
Humans in general cant know the differences so they dont take
it seriously till they realise that thier is some thing realy rong but it could be too late,some times the entity could stay in the middle stage by causing just mantal or health damage if the person was fighting it with the right wepons
but this also could be dangerouse becz in the long term it well under such stressand presure you are doing the job alone for him,thier is no
basic low to follow ,you cant predict his steps or symptoms,demonic
possesion symptoms could be similar to some mantal or psychological
illnes thierfor this make it more hard to discover it earlier,also ,,evil
entities have different ways of possesing or approaching,it depend on the motivation and the person mantal strength or habits,but in many cases we can see on the possesed person,nighmares,bruises,pain
in head or scratches in the lower part,sadness, uncertaine feeling,not happy with
partner,strong thoughts about sex,or bloody images,,,,, even cancer or hormonic
sicknes can be caused by the evil entity (radiation nature)
Im getting alot of massages around the world specially from the states about demonic symptoms.
Most pepole are afraid to talk about it directly and try rong ways
to solve it wich make it wors,possesed person should be strong and
stable and seriouse about it.
The war between humans and Evil is overlasting and he is winning.
Im happy to offer my edvice and help for all humans out thier
