The Other Side follows a team of paranormal investigators who, with the guidance of an Aboriginal Elder, seek the truth behind Canada’s real life hauntings.
Active spirits, sometimes playful, other times angry and violent, have pushed through to our world from The Other Side. Intuitive Jeff Richards, paranormal investigator Bill Connelly, researcher Priscilla Wolf and Aboriginal Elder and Spirit Guide Tom Charles embark on a paranormal expedition to find out why. The team engages the spirits through a mix of technology, intuition, and Aboriginal spirituality and ceremony, all with the hope of restoring balance between our world and the world where the spirits walk. The Other Side is an innovative examination of spirits, our fears, and how different beliefs can be brought together to calm them.

THE INVESTIGATIVE TEAM
Jeff Richards – Intuitive
Jeff is a well known psychic entertainer and intuitive who is sensitive to the paranormal. He uses contact ceremonies (formerly known as seances), pendulums and his highly-developed inner knowing to respectfully contact “The Other Side”.
Although Jeff is of Aboriginal descent, “The Other Side” was his first opportunity to approach paranormal phenomenon using Aboriginal Spirituality as shared by elders, healers and medicine people on the show.
The experience has had a profound effect on Jeff. “I have always aimed to enrich the lives of others by opening their eyes to world of the unseen. A world often misunderstood and taken for granted. This show has opened MY eyes to that world on a level I could have never anticipated. I now see that my journey of exploring the complexity of the afterlife is just beginning, and I now have a new understanding that will guide me on this path.”
Bill “Paranorbill” Connelly – Paranormal Bad Boy
Bill talks straight and searches for hard evidence. Always a skeptic first, he has captured reels of undisputed paranormal evidence. It all started when he was a young kid growing up in a funeral home and saw a spirit staring down at its dead body in the casket…
Bill’s fascination with capturing evidence of paranormal activity has escalated from a hobby to his life’s work. Bill has every piece of paranormal investigation equipment imaginable but also relies on something he calls his “weird thing” – the ability to sense good and bad energy. He says it’s because spirits are drawn to him and always have been.
Despite Bill’s bad-boy image—including his tattoed arms and trademark mohawk — he has experience working with Spirit Guides in past investigations; including elders, healers and medicine people and he has a deep respect for traditional teachings.
Priscilla Wolf – Researcher/ Cultural Liaison
Priscilla grew up in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and she is from the Mistawasis First Nation. From an early age, her parents taught her about their Aboriginal traditions, and when she was a teenager she attended Roman Catholic boarding school. As a result, she brings knowledge of two different philosophies and practices when it comes to the spiritual world.
Priscilla is also a news veteran who knows how to get to the bottom of the story. Educated as a journalist, Priscilla brings professional research skills to the team and is tasked with digging up the truth behind each incident the team investigates.
“Growing up in a traditional Aboriginal background, there was always a belief that there are spirits around….I can tell you, I am more of a believer now.”
Tom Charles, Elder & Spiritual Intuitive
When Tom was a small child, his aunt went missing and the memory of that loss left a profound impact on him. “No one should ever experience that feeling of helplessness that I felt for many years,” says Tom. Sixty-plus years later, Tom is still dedicated to helping others find their missing loved ones using what can only be explained as an otherwordly intuition….Tom’s background is very much shrouded in mystery , but his amazing abilities in paranormal communication have quickly made believers out of everyone he comes into contact with.
