Gregory is a long-time Midwesterner. He's lived in Chicago, Bloomington (IN), and Saint Louis, my current home. Aside from reading and writing (which takes up a lot of his time), he's an educator. While he enjoys reading across many genres, his two main loves are mystery and speculative fiction. He used to keep a list of favorite books, but it changes so frequently that he's given up. He's always looking for recommendations, though, so please drop him a line if you have something in mind! His big goal right now is one day to be responsible enough to get a dog.

Show Host | The Mind's Eye
Brian's diverse background has carved out a unique perspective and interest in a variety of subjects, hence, the "never know what you'll get" focus and format. BJ became intimately familiar with how history is written by the winners through educational gaps from his past experiences as a teacher. As a self-business owner of an inspection company, he saw firsthand how the government and financial institutions took advantage of the poor and disadvantaged. Incorporating these experiences with time in traditional radio, Brian created The Mind's Eye to shine a light on the hidden, often dirty crevices of history and the present to find kernels of truth and give voice to the voiceless. Since 2009, Brian also moonlights as a paranormal researcher and investigator who has conducted lectures and workshops across the East Coast. His current day job is working with seniors at a retirement community. Listen to The Mind's Eye, Thursdays at 10 pm EST on Stitcher Radio. Brian also has a current bimonthly co-hosting gig on NBC Radio's House of Mystery.
