Weird Tales Radio Show hosted by Charles Christian

Join English barrister and Reuters correspondent turned writer, editor, award-winning tech journalist and sometime werewolf-hunter Charles Christian for one hour of folklore, urban myths, history, geek culture and the weird. If general off-the-wall weirdness is your thing, then the Weird Tales Radio Show has something for everyone with interviews, reports and news items – but with a focus on fun and strangeness that sets it apart from other paranormal radio shows. Described as “The Today Show of the paranormal and supernatural” and “a fabulously atmospheric and over-flowing with esoteric info-show well loved by the geekiverse” – in 2019 it was rated as one of the Top 40 UK radio shows and podcasts you must subscribe and listen to. And yes, Charles really was once commissioned by a UK newspaper to go on a werewolf hunt – spoiler alert: he didn’t find one.
