Kurt is one of the co-hosts of the podcast "The Strange Sessions".

Expecting only a few friends and family to listen to their podcast, Kurt and Krista were amazed when people they didn't know started listening and joining their Facebook group. Their small podcast kept growing and has turned into an amazing community of listeners. 

A lifelong Wisconsin native, Kurt has been into the paranormal ever since he was a child, experiencing several unexplained things in the house he grew up in. This blossomed into a lifelong fascination with ghosts, aliens, and anything spooky, eventually joining the Wisconsin-based paranormal research group Heartland Paranormal Investigations and doing investigations all over the Midwest.  

Kurt beliefs that the world is far stranger than anyone realizes. And that's a good thing, because without that sense of mystery and wonder, life would just be dull.
