Join ParaNation as we close out 2013 with a horrifying bang as Alex Matsuo talks to Ed and Marsha Becker about their terrfying experience with the paranormal that led to the first televised exorcism on NBC in 1971.  The Beckers' story has been featured on SyFy's Paranormal Witness on the episode, "The Tenants", and depicted in Ed's best-selling book, True Haunting.

Edwin F. Becker has also acted as guest, host and co-host on numerous commercial and internet radio shows in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom and Australia. He was born in Chicago, Illinois, a Baby Boomer. Coming from an abusive broken home, he spent a number of elementary years in Maryville, a Catholic children's institution. There, he learned Latin and became an altar boy. He went on to become a professional musician and spent his later teen years traveling the states with an R&B Show band. During his travels, he met and married his wife, Marsha, of 47 years.

Ed has been writing original stories for over three decades for pure enjoyment. He has two daughters that have given him four granddaughters. Today Ed and Marsha reside in Branson, where they enjoy the year around activity and entertainment. Ed is very opinionated and many of his works contain a strong social subtext. Missouri, the "Show Me" state, seems an appropriate place to reside. His personal philosophy? "Leave everything and everyone better than you found them."
