Joshua P Warren RS

By Clint Parker- In our area when you talk about paranormal activity and who you might call to investigate, it’s not Ghostbusters, but Joshua P. Warren. The Erwin High graduate has been chasing the unexplained since his school days and his first book, at age 14, Haunted Asheville.

Warren will be the guest of nationally syndicated radio talk show host George Noory at the Diana Wortham Theatre in downtown Asheville on Saturday, August 27 at 5 p.m.

“I have had the great fortune of traveling the world, and my travel schedule is hectic. I am often gone from Asheville for long periods of time, and I am so excited to be back for George Noory’s event,” said Warren when interviewed by the Tribune.

“George has been a great friend and true supporter of researchers in Western North Carolina. I am not only thrilled to be back with my friends and family, but also help introduce them, in-person, to the man who slips them into a dreamscape each night with Coast to Coast AM. This event is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and I mean that truly. This will never happen again. If you want to experience some wild stuff you’ll tell your grandkids about, this is your chance. I’m not exaggerating,” said Warren

Joining Noory and Warren will be author of the book One Second After) and “the modern day Paul Revere” William R. Forstchen of Black Mountain. Forstchen is sounding the alarm of how an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) could send the country back to the stone age. Local UFOlogist Micah Hanks will round out the guests for the night.

Noory hosts the late night talk show Coast to Coast AM heard on more than 600 stations in North America. Each night on Coast to Coast AM, listeners are captivated with discussions on news and current events, conspiracy theories and all things curious and unexplained. Nationally syndicated by Premiere Networks, Coast to Coast AM broadcasts Monday through Sunday from 1-5 a.m. ET

Warren, beside being an author and paranormal investigator, is also the creator of the Haunted Asheville Ghost Tours. “We leave from the Masonic Temple at 80 Broadway and end by taking our guests into the basement of the Masonic Temple to the Asheville Mystery Museum. We won a 2016 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and that is based solely upon customer feedback.”

Warren is not shy about what his tour and museum has to offer, not just to tourist, but to longtime residents of the area. “So if you’re reading this, and you’re a local who has been here 50 years, we’ll still blow your mind with amazing history. And if you’re new to town, you’ll start at the right place to learn about the coolest stuff Asheville has to offer. Our guides, Tadd and Brian, are locals who specialize in the weird, amazing, spooky, and fun.” Readers can see more at
