About The Show

New Show Every MondayThe Show:

Reel Lost Podcast focuses on over 40 found/ recovered reel-to-reel tapes and their sometimes supernatural-based content. Hosted by anomalistic researcher John E.L. Tenney each episode presents one of the reel-to-reel recordings in its entirety. These recordings were recovered from the homes of persons who were involved in the paranormal/naturopathic/psychic community from the 1940’s-1960’s. The transference of ownership of these recordings to the host is believed to imply that the current owner holds the copyright/usage rights to release these recordings. In some instances the names of the original owners will be removed to protect their identity, otherwise these recordings will be presented without noticeable edits. Sometimes the recordings may contain religious and spiritual issues these are presented as an insight into the ever-changing nature of thoughts and personal belief systems.
