When other supernatural sleuths are content to merely observe the bizarre, the crew from Planet Weird dive in head first.
For the past 15 years, Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews have traversed North America on hundreds of paranormal adventures in search of everything from legendary monsters to mind bending psychic phenomena, covering everything in between. If there’s one thing they can agree upon when it comes to exploring the unexplained (and there probably only is one thing) it’s that there are plenty of questions left unanswered.
In Engaging the Strange, a new online documentary series from Planet Weird, Greg and Dana aim to solve these problems by completely immersing themselves in the legends in a way that no else ever has… or wants to. Rather than simply look for the paranormal, the duo attempts to become the paranormal. Can they learn to harness their latent mental powers to become the psychic super soldiers reminiscent of secret government projects? Can they figure out why extraterrestrials want to put things in our butts so badly by actually getting abducted themselves?
These are just some of the questions that Engaging the Strange dares to tackle as the duo seek to uncover the world’s most iconic mysteries through a distinct blend of research, experimentation, and humorous self-sacrifice. When it comes to an adventure, there’s no substitute for just jumping in.
Enough observing. It’s time to engage the strange.
