Who Are You?
I’m Joe Kline, one of the founding members of the Paranormal Encounter Documentation and Research Organization, or P.E.D.R.O. for short.
What are your thoughts on networking with other teams or investigators?
We do it all the time! It’s great getting together with other groups that are interested in what we are doing.
Hunter, Investigator, Researcher – What do you want to be referred to and why?
All are fine, but we think of ourselves as documentarians there to capture whatever may occur to the best of our abilities.
What is your most memorable paranormal experience?
Probably the one that got me started when I was young. Several people including myself witnessed a full torso in broad daylight.
Have you ever had an experience where you’ve crossed a spirit over?
No. As group we try not to attach any theological explanations to what we capture. That’s not our place.
Did you have experiences while growing up?
As I grew up studying the paranormal and ghost hunting, absolutely.
What is your favorite Paranormal Show (TV/Internet/Radio?
Probably Ghost Adventures, not to say that it’s more real or accurate than the other shows, but it is the most fun to watch.
What are your thoughts about Provoking?
We don’t practice it as a group. We prefer to use trigger objects and we like to remain positive. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
What are your thoughts about Orbs? Dust or spirit? How do you tell the difference?
Most are dust but not all. We have a photography expert on our team that has been a professional photographer for many years. He knows the technical stuff and keeps us from posting dust and moisture.
Would you ever use a Medium or Psychic on your team?
Not regularly, but we are open to the idea. It would have to be someone that’s comfortable with us having to substantiate everything and not presenting anything we don’t have conclusive evidence for.
