About Week In Weird

What is Week In Weird?

Week in Weird is sort of a like a buffer between you and that guy at the bus stop who keeps whispering about angels in the television static. You really want to know what he’s talking about, but you value your personal safety. Don’t worry, we’ll ask him for you.

Founded in 2008 by Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews, Week In Weird has since grown into a must-read online destination for anyone with even a passing interest in all things odd. With its lighthearted, middle of the road approach to the unexplained and the best-written weird news content on the web, Week in Weird has become a regular source of material for huge media outlets like VICE, Mental FlossCoast to Coast AM, Gawker, The Fortean Times, and Mysterious Universe to name just a few.

Over the years Week in Weird has become the online destination for all things strange, including everything from paranormal news, to vintage mysteries, to bizarre tales of the unexplained. We’re not about proving or disproving the strange stories we publish, but rather about sharing them in the interest of capturing and cataloguing the events for other passionate weirdos like ourselves. In the spirit of standing the middle ground, the decision to believe or disbelieve is left up to the reader. Week in Weird is a magazine written for lovers of the strange by lovers of the strange.

So grab your tin foil hats and explore the wonderful world of the weird, the strange, and downright unexplainable each day with Week in Weird.

POLOLOGO_bigger“I’m a long time follower of Week in Weird. What keeps me coming back? Well, to bastardize a Gene Wilder quote, “So shines a good deed in a (paranormal) world”. Week in Weird are that good deed. You can only have fun with a subject and take it seriously in equal measure if you genuinely care about it. It’s my impression that Week in Weird care. That’s why I keep coming back.” – Lee D. Munro, Otherworld North East Research Society
