Radio broadcaster and parapsychologist Dr. Malcolm Ryder helps callers with their supernatural problems. He also delves into the dark and strange history of America. Callers are haunted by mysterious black doors, see ancient beings in their paisley wallpaper, have terrifying creatures appear in their cars on dark and lonely roads. In the history segment of our show, Ryder tells of the pyramid made of flesh in Palta, Arizona that appeared one morning, of how the Mississippi River is a sleeping leviathan, and of the last known sighting of the dark dealmaker, The Traveling Salesman.

Scintillating stories

We join radio show host & parapsychologist Dr. Malcolm Ryder. He has an expansive knowledge of paranormal lore. He provides a vital paranormal support hotline service to callers in distress.

If afflicted by the strange & you feel your life is in peril , make the call.

We listen to how Dr Ryder calmly circumnavigates the daily obstacles that befall his panicked callers.

Quickly embroiled in the suspense filled adventures we experience their attempts to survive strange situations.

Dr Ryder and his network of contacts who also have specialised knowledge, are there for further support.

This is a high calibre production with captivating storyline’s. The talented performers bring each character & their métier vividly to life. I am glued to the edge of my seat, eagerly anticipating what happens next.

If you enjoyed other paranormal audio dramas such as :
