Hi, I'm Hayley and I'm a paranormal researcher. This means that when people experience weird things, I help them work out what's really going on using science and rational inquiry. I don't believe that strange things necessarily have a supernatural or paranormal cause.
Aside from my research work, I also write an award-winning blog called Hayley Is A Ghost and I produce and host The Spooktator podcast with my co-hosts Charlie Revelle-Smith and Paul Gannon. It's the podcast that examines the stranger elements of life, society, international culture, and the media. I also deliver public lectures to a range of different audiences about how a skeptic can (and does) investigate the paranormal using logic and science.
As you can probably imagine, investigating weird stuff takes a lot of time, effort, and resources which all require funding and that's why I'm asking for your help. I investigate weird stuff in my spare time around working and also studying for a BSc (hons) in psychology.
By supporting my work from as little as $3 a month (that's £2.27 to us Brits) you can help me travel further afield so that I can conduct more field-based investigations. Money raised via my supporters here also helps to cover hosting costs that I face for my blog and The Spooktator, which helps my work reach a wider, more diverse audience.
If I manage to raise £200 per month from Patreon supporters I'm hoping to produce a solo podcast examining the paranormal heritage of the United Kingdom through my unique network of friends and acquaintances, too. You can help me achieve all of this for the price of a coffee or a pint of beer.
Did you know that Britain's sexiest ghost was actually just a living person illuminated by their phone? Readers of my blog do because I took time to investigate it, and you now have a chance to help me debunk and explain other sexy (and not sexy) ghosts.
In return for your support you'll have the opportunity to:
- Have a written credit on my blog
- Join me for occasional live chats here on Patreon which requires you to have the Patreon app with push notifications enabled.
- Join me each month for an exclusive livestream hangout which will be conducted on Youtube (unlisted) and requires a mic and headphones (webcams are optional)
- Join my Halloween club!
Those who pledge the most support will receive a gift in the post from me each Halloween. I love Halloween (even though it has no direct link to the number of ghost sighting reported by the public) so you're likely to be in for a treat! (Or a trick!) If all of the places in Halloween club are taken up, I may even send you a Christmas gift too!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
