Alex Matsuo

The paranormal genre and community has evolved and seen a number of dramatic shifts over the last decade and what was the standard has completely changed. What was an almost formulaic set up for “paranormal success” is now no longer relevant and the envelope has been pushed into a whole new realm. Investigators and content creators are changing the very landscape of the paranormal, and today’s guest on The Malliard Report has had her finger on this pulse from the very beginning. This week Jim features Alex Matsuo on the show to discuss where the field has come, where it is at, and where she believes it is heading. She also discusses some of her favorite equipment pieces, methods to investigating and more.
