In the early 2000s Gareth Davies founded the immensely popular Mind Set Central website, to which David Farrant was a regular contributor.  In 2009 Mind Set Central made the transition to an internet broadcasting platform, and today publishes around 17 podcasts every month.  The shows ‘attempt to open eyes and minds by shedding a little light on what’s really going on in the world’, and tackle the unexplained, conspiracy theories, politics and classic paranormal cases throughout history.  The Para-Talk show, which deals with the latter and is co-hosted by paranormal enthusiast Reeves Cooke, has invited David and Della Farrant to appear as guests several times. You can catch up on these episodes below.
